I just resisted posting an angry rant in a FB group where people are sharing the phone numbers of police stations closest to a given section of the lake. Others chimed in suggesting apps.

My only concern about using the cable from the kit is the length. As I built my network, I used whichever parts and pieces I had on-hand at the time, so I used a 15' cable for devices that were next...

You'll need 3 T's:

Power, Fusion, Garmin

Garmin T's will connect to Lowrance T's, but possibly at a different angle. I have several non-Garmin T's - they work fine, but don't align with the...

It's not that there's anything wrong with that, but the relationships will evolve from neighborly to familial, so the names could evolve too.

Adopting (and even fostering) these kids is a...

Yes, the head unit (Fusion 750) has a yellow wire for memory power.

The amp in question though, has: 12V power fed directly from the house battery bank, ground, and remote turn-on. Those...

I think a repair makes sense. The radio hasn’t been on all week, yet this amp is warm. Something must be going on with the remote power wire...?

Repair or replace JL amp?

My 4-year old JL MHD900/5 (5 channel) amp died. It powered six 6.5's and a sub in the cockpit. (inside speakers run from a separate amp)

The amps live in a dry cool space inside the boat and...

I was going to post this to see if anyone had details of what Garmin is planning. I guess I'll register.

If you think the senders are ok but you don't trust the gauges themselves, then you can attach the GFS-10 sender leads and your new "gauges" will be on the Garmin. If you don't trust your senders,...

If I took the words of keyboard warriors seriously, I'd believe that I shouldn't expect more than 1/3rd of a mile per gallon. For that reason, I love my meters. I've configured my displays to always...

Plowing might've been the wrong description - that implies not on-plane. I'm thinking that his boat is running at a poor angle / inefficiently at that speed. A 310 HP 7.4 should be burning a...

That didn't strike me as very out of line...? 20GPH is a little high for 3,500 RPM, but 24GPH is reasonable for 4,200.

If he's over-propped, under-tabbed - plowing a bit at 3,500 that could...

DSC Distress call Sat 6-22

I was at PIB on Saturday. At around 9:30 pm, I heard the radios of several boats around me sound the DSC alert tone. My own radio wasn't on. Did anyone else hear it? Was it legit?

I have twin MPI 7.4 IB's and Garmin GFS-10's. The meters have shown me that my economy "graph" has a dip in it. Her best econ is just above planing speeds with tabs dug all the way in. That's 2,700 -...

Did I just wake up in 1997? Shouldn't this discussion be about the best ways to check the operation of a DSC radio, OR if you don't have a fully-enable DSC radio, why the F@$% not???

Yes. The CLEAR agent must witness your electronic ID process then escort you to the TSA agent's stand to tell them that you've been "cleared".

Again, we're conflating CLEAR with screening.

CLEAR allows you to skip the lines to get INTO screening. That can be a very big benefit to Pre-Check as well as general screening passengers.

I've recommended this to friends based on price and form-factor alone: it covers the hole of older, larger radios without needing a filler plate.
