RE: bilge pumps - need advice

this may be a dumb question, but why don't you just buy a fountain pump at Home Depot/Lowes. They are designed for exactly what you want to do.

RE: Garmin 3010 - Losing Depth Reading

I would check the connection between the transducer and the GSD 2x box and maybe reroute that same cable. Don't worry about the cable from the GSD2x to the 3010...that's digital and unlikely to be...

Re: mother/daughter team excited but need guidance!

I am surprised that no one has suggested joining the "freedom boat club" (if there's one in your area or the area where you want to fish).

Why buy when you can use a boat when you want? Might...

Re: 23ft. Walkaround

You should seriously consider the Pursuit 2470 which is just a little longer but much more boat. If you're going used, you should be able to find a '99 or '00 at the price you'd pay for a 23'.
