  1. Fishfinder/Chartplotter deals on Facebook

    It's a scam.

    No info on Michael?
  3. Hatch seal dimensions

    Jazzy how many feet did you order to redo all the hatches on a 22'?
  4. Console Wiring Clean Up

    I'm sure costs vary greatly on a job like this based on the condition of your wiring and what is involved. I had a livewell pump replaced, the float switch on the bilge repaired and a trolling motor issue looked at as well. I was able to text them pictures on my wiring prior to bringing it in and get a rough estimate. I would suggest doing the same if you can.
  5. Console Wiring Clean Up

    Had a project done that I've been meaning to get around to ever since I bought my boat. Over the years wiring in the console had turned into quite a mess. I didn't think my 2004 Pathfinder needed a full rewire job. I was was able to work with St. Marks Pro Marine in St. Marks, FL to get everything squared away. It will be much easier to track down future issues with neat and labeled wiring. Here's some before and after pics.
  6. Pathfinder 2200 Aerator Pump Replacement?

    Never mind. Saw another post and got it figured out. Went with the new style Rule 800 tournament. You can see the old style rule feeding the livewell, next to the new style pump for the release well.
  7. The pump going to the release well in my 2200v stopped working. I believe this is an older Rule model no longer made. Any suggestions on a replacement? See pics.

    My transducer is mounted here:
  9. Boarding ladder Installation (Finally)

    Noticed your transducer in the pictures. Are you getting readings while up on plane? Don't see many mounted behind the pocket.
  10. Proud to introduce Lake Maverick!

    Where's the boat ramp?
  11. Florida Map Tracks compatible unit

    I run the FMT chip in a GO7 XSE. Love the chip and would highly recommend. As far as the GO7, there's certainly times I wish I had a bigger screen. When it's bouncy its difficult to zoom in and out, or adjust volume or songs if you run a SonicHub. If you zoom too far out on the 7" the screen gets too cluttered to be of any use with the multiple map layers and depth soundings. I have both the North and South FL chip but have only needed to run one at a time. If you fished on the border between the north and south chip that may be an issue. Lastly, keep in mind on the GO series the chips are inserted from a port in the back of the unit. Not an issue, unless you plan to flush mount. It could be a pain having to access the back of the unit in the console to change chips.
  12. Flat Tire Tools

    In addition to the above, I carry an electric impact wrench. Sure does make life easy changing tires with rusted lug nuts.
  13. Low Water Pressure Yamaha F150

    Yes, I did get it figured it out. Went ahead and did a full 100 hour service. Ordered my parts from SIM Yamaha. To address the low water pressure reading, I replaced the impeller. The impeller was actually in good shape but replaced it in any case. I also replaced the thermostat. Thermostat was in bad shape, and was likely not opening up correctly. After doing the above my F150 was running as good as new.
  14. The official "What did you catch today" thread

    Got out with my little guy. He's only 4 but he's already hooked on fishing.
  15. New Bimini Top for 2200 TRS

    Rocky, I think I saw you pulling out of the Lanark ramp on Sunday. Nice boat. I have a blue 2200V. Mine came with a factory bimini top but I never use it. Its stored in my carport. I feel like it gets in the way if you are fishing 2 or 3 guys and throwing top water all day. Enjoy your new ride. Next time I see you, I'll have to say hi.
