    2 Garmin 740's

    Going FMT. These work fine and I use one as a sounder and one a gps and it gives you a little back up as well. These were flush mounted but I have the all of the brackets, wiring and transducer. 1 Garmin 740s and 1 Garmin 740 with 1 Vision card key west to Jacksonville. $550 plus freight

    Total Scan Install Question

    Installing a Lowrance HDS12 on the Pathfinder with Total Scan. How much of an issue is accurate depth operation and rooster tail at higher speeds (30mph+)? Should I consider a second transducer for high speed? Thanks in advance for the input.

    Boat lift straps

    FYI 4 inch will work as well. That's what I started with and they were ok. The 6 inch was like $10 more per strap so It was a no brainer. Make sure they fall right on the hull. No issues with the rub rails on either boat.

    Boat lift straps

    I have had 2 pathfinders on straps for their entire lives with no problem (5+years each) as long as you get them supported correctly. I have front strap right at the fuel fill and the rear just forward of the bilge drain. Make sure the lift and straps are heavy enough to use. My life is 10000# and the straps 7500# each and 6 inches wide. Hope that helps

    Boat Insurance

    Just went through this and ended up with Progressive after being with Gallagher Great Lakes for 10 years. Progressive was just about 1/2 and only 5% named storm deductible compared to Gallagher 10%. They did not hassle me over the value either so I used what the dealer gave me as replacement cost. I checked with about everyone but not Foremost.

    I Want FMT! What Would You Do?

    Heard from my Garmin contact it was a combo of navionics and their current chip, but no tracks.

    Selling boat: online options.

    Depending on what it is this forum worked three times for me. Never got a hit on Boat Trader. I also sold stuff on Micro Skiff and THT. good luck with your sale

    I Want FMT! What Would You Do?

    I just went through this and after extended discussions with Glenn at FMT followed his recommendations: FMT works best on a 12 inch screen or bigger. If possible don’t go below 9 or there is a lot of zoom in and out. A couple of my buddies run the 9 inch Simrads and says it’s ok. Gimble mount works best so you can see the screen seated or running on a flats type boat. I ordered a Lowrance Carbon 12 inch from their outlet store for $2099 including transducer for my pathfinder and intend to flush mount it in place of 2 Garmin 740s. I found a place in New Sryma to make me a black acrylic dash for $75. when I get some more money I will swap out the Garmin 7608 on the maverick for either a 9 or 12 in bracket mount. Good luck with your quest

    Electronics upgrade

    After 20 years with Garmin I pulled the trigger on a Lowrance Carbon with FMT for the pathfinder. I wanted to do something cool rather than plain starboard to cover up the existing cutouts and mount the new unit. I know there are ideas out there on material so please send them my way.hanks in advance and happy new year to all.

    That’s kinda what I am looking for but just the material. I will do the install.

    PP vs TM

    Have both on both of our boats. I think it depends how you fish. In deeper water I go TM. On the flats PP. I feel the TM makes to much noise trying to hold position when it gets really skinny. Dock fishing TM all of the way.

    Yeti Cooler for 2002 Mav V

    Sandy made it so my wife would have some back support. I had to give her the height I wanted and she took it from there.
