Use a bunch from Amazon. No issues. I got sick of fighting with rubber hoses. The expanders are great. So light and easy to use. Buy longer hoses than you think you need as they’ll lose length if...

I have Optimus EPS and to upgrade to 360 I was quoted $12k. Calling Sea Star directly they said it should be about $8k. Typical Naples crooks.

I bought a little screw in sand anchor from Outdoor World. Cheap like $20. Works great for holding the stern towards the beach if I anchor just off the sandbar. No chain necessary.

Seems too pricey for a 2002 Mako. How is it not bracketed? I had a 1997 Mako 232 with a bracket. Great boat. I had it out in some nasty conditions and she kept me safe. Ended up stolen in Coconut...

For sure. An easy way to know your AP heading needs adjustment is when docked, on a lift or on a trailer. Look at your standard boat compass and compare it to your heading on the chart plotter. Make...

Yes but somewhere else in there it says you can still use the heading fine tune adjustment. Don't do it within a Wizard. Do it separately in the menu sequence I listed.

Thanks, it worked. Key is to image the card/drive and not just the map folder on the SD card.

Formatted the card again and now the maps show. Is there a way to load the maps into my hard drive rather than off the card? I can’t get home port to see them unless they’re on the SD card.

You either stop thinking about the cost, buy a Yeti and then stroke your ego by wearing the hat too. Try hard to never think about how you made something as trivial as a cooler into a status symbol....

I was there in Feb and you'd think it was a marina. Even saw some guys standing on it shooting 'cuda with spear guns. Retards.

Fishing there was crap. I'd just keep running.

Yep, I've seen it. Looks simple. Then I went out and tried his way with my 10' 3/8" mesh 1.35 lb/ft net and it's a mess. That dude is using a 9' mullet net with 1-1.5' mesh. Very little to hold in...

Throwing a 10' or bigger net with that method is fantasy unless you play in the NFL or have a net that is weighted under 1lb/ft. That technique is misery and disappointment with a 10'+ net and...
