    Offshore/Inshore

    Went out of Cedar Key yesterday to make sure the new water pump worked good, and to try the new Simrad I had just installed. All mechanical and electrical working good so out to Seahorse Reef and trolled some Clark spoons. Nice fat Spanish Mackerel loved 'em. Got my limit in about an hour, and ran back to the islands to see if I could find a red...…..yep. Beautiful calm day, and got back home early. Soon to be a fish fry. Side note, while at the ramp I met a guy with a 2008 Hewes Redfisher 21 that was absolutely showroom condition, nicest one I've seen.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I put a new Simrad NSS9 evo3 on the boat, nice and lightweight and built in GPS receiver. Cleaned up the organized the NMEA 2000 network in the console too. Now as soon as the Yamaha gateway arrives, I'll tie in the engine data to the network. It's super easy entering waypoints, and I really like the combination of touch screen and buttons/rotary wheel.

    MA21 Prop Choice

    I usually open her up on the way back to the ramp and get 59 to 61 at 5700 - 5800 rpm depending on load, current.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I haven't run the boat for a while due to being out of town, so got back and cranked it up last week. Well, no peeing through the tell tale and temp going up. I found some bug crap in the hole and cleaned it out, but still nothing. It did flow fine when hooked up to the engines flushing attachment. So I ordered a water pump replacement kit including a new housing, watched a couple youtube videos, and changed it out today. Got a pissing motor again! Not that difficult a job and definitely saved some money. Time to get back out on the water.
  5. Unit works perfectly, and has a screen protector on it since it was new. Will include the GPS, mounting bracket, dome type antenna, sun cover, power cable, NMEA 2000 backbone, and Garmin manuals. The GPS has always been kept off the boat in a storage case when not in use. Selling for $425 shipped. Contact via this forum, or e-mail to: ktcom@bellsouth.net

    NSS12 EVO 3 Transducer Recomendations

    Blackacre, I fish primarily out of Cedar Key, and on up to Deer Island towards Suwannee. Out to Seahorse Reef, and scalloping in Steinhatchee. Trailer from Gainesville so sometimes I’lol head east to St. Augustine. The FMT video of the gulf coast doesn’t show much in this area, he skips on up to the north pretty fast.

    NSS12 EVO 3 Transducer Recomendations

    Decided to pick up a Simrad NSS 9 Evo3 while the $400 rebate is still offered. I like the combination of touch screen and buttons/scroll wheel. The FMT charts look good for use in unfamiliar areas, but not going to get the chip until they get more tracks for the big bend area. On one of their YouTube videos they said they were going to do that, but don’t know when. Now to see what I can get for a used Garmin 4208.

    Sharp looking boat, why selling such a new boat?

    I looked at the Garmin unit above, when I was down in Ft. Lauderdale last week. Am considering it in the 10" size to replace my 4208 unit. Was considering the Simrad NSS evo3 but was not impressed with the mapping detail. The new Garmin BlueChart G3 maps look very good. I think Garmin is stepping up their game since they bought Navionics.

    Replacing Garmin thoughts?

    What's the standard chart that comes with the NSS Evo3? I'm interested in either the 9" or 12" with a FMT chart, but curious about what the standard chart is. Simrad site says it's a C-Map US Enhanced Basemap.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I had it done on the gulf coast in Inglis. If you're in NE FL anywhere near Jax there should be lots of places to get some quotes that might be closer to you.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Around $2500. I would think you could get cheaper if you're in an area with more shops and can get multiple quotes. I was hoping for around $1500 but bit the bullet anyway.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Got the boat back from the shop after having 9 years of accumulated oyster rash repaired on the hull, and a new intake cheese grater installed. Old one bent back after screw heads rusted off.

    Replacing Garmin thoughts?

    Timely info for me too. My Garmin 4208 wouldn't come on yesterday in St. Augustine. Gotta troubleshoot today and see if it's a wiring connection or the unit itself. The Simrad 9" Evo3 looks sweet.

    Bait & Release Well Plumbing 2003 RF18

    Had the same issue with mine, handles rusted off with valves in open position. Also had a cluster of three valves, three strainers, and three pumps and the valves were so far back it was nearly impossible to get at them quickly if ever needed to in an emergency. Ended up putting new Groco stainless valves in, and instead of a separate feed and strainer for each pump I ran one valve more towards the stern with a longer piece of pipe so I can now easily access it. The other two valves stay closed and have a stainless plug in them as they are no longer used. No grass problems for me either but decided to keep one strainer in the system anyway, better than three. All the pumps are now easy to access too cause they are all moved back to the transom area. No problems with the livewells filling, and I only use one at a time anyway. I just decided to do this since I had to replace the valves. And yes, what a pain in the butt reaching back there to do all the work, but worth it in the end.
