    Cracks forming in my MA hull

    Would not be concerned with the cracking on the light collared part of the hull but would get the larger crack looked into on the darker part of the hull, looks deeper. And yes, need to fix the chunks taken out. Will only get worse over time.

    Oyster white can’t go wrong with it. With green hull I would go a little more cream shade, jmo.

    Garmin charting

    Called WM who I bought the unit from with extended wty. Would be happy to replace my unit for free but no stores have them due to being discontinued. Offered me a complete refund to upgrade to a 74cv plus and an extra $100. Needed for the upgrade. Would have gladly done it but would have cost several hundred for haul out as trans user would have to be change as would the flush mounting. Not using power cradle anymore, back to plug in in back of unit. Just have to accept what it is. Not a happy camper at all

    Garmin charting

    This might be a little long but felt it should be shared to Garmin users. Just purchased a 74cv echo chip with 4.2 software. Like the unit very much. Came with g2 charting. They have come out now with the g3 charting. Anyone having the earlier software can down load the new software from their computer using a SD card and then download into unit and then remove card. If you cannot download from computer Garmin will send you a SD card to download into unit then remove it. This needs to be done to download the g3 charts. Contact Garmin for instructions for downloading the g3 or ask them to send you the new g3 SD card. The new card MUST be kept in the unit for the g3 to work. It will not download and store in unit. Told this is for all older units that will accept the new g3 charting. The g3 SD is free for units under one year old. Older units, the card is $30. Hope this information helps some of you. To have this all done the unit must have been registered online with Garmin which is a PIA. Both I and others are having problems with online registering. I you also have this problem, call them and they will walk you through the process while doing it. The wait time is over an hour so you can leave your number and not loose you place in line. Have to say their tech support is excellent and will take all the time needed to help you. Even if it is to setup your unit while on the boat as they did for a friend who knew nothing about a gps. πŸ˜ƒfin this should have been posted a week ago. Do not know why it didn’t go through. as of today my thoughts of garmin has compleatly changed. Yes their tech support is excellent but customer service ***. New unit arrive with a bad card reader. Was not able to download new 4.3 software using sd card sent by them. Sending me new head unit, not the 74cv chirp ECHOMAP because they have been discontinued and they have none. Sending me a 74dv which is and older model and it is REFURBISHED. Will accept the new 4.3 update softwhere and g3 update charting software. Not happy. Friend with a one year old cv received brand new g3 map card not and update card. They have made 4 errors in processing this new order. Claims their error but I’m stuck with an older unit. You would think they would give me a 74cv plus and eat the 100. Difference. FYI new units do not have the snap in cradles, went back to the older surface mounting and plugs in back of unit and not on cradle and difference transducer. Would have to pay a few hundred to have the plus unit installed. Friend has also been having problems with garmin. WILL NEVER BUY GARMIN AGAIN, sorry for the recant but enough is enough being jerked around. 😑fin

    Yamaha Outboard Shortage

    Do you have a choice of putting a different engine on the boat. Could you take delivery sans the engine and have it rigged with your engine of choice and have cost of yam deducted from total cost of boat. Just a question. πŸ™‚
