    Dual Battery

    I have no problems using standard AGM batteries for cranking. I have three group 31 AGM batteries on my boat. Two for the trolling motor and one cranking battery.

    Need all members help

    My first impression is, I would rather the government promoted the use of EPIRBS, rather than mandate them. I have one in my boat, along with a Inreach, I choose to be prepared for the worst. I’m having a 8’ vhf antenna installed on my new boat so I can get more range to call for help. We have way too many regulations. Its my choosing to be prepared and I prefer to keep it that way.

    Kill Bag in fishbox on 2400 TRS?

    If I’m not using live bait, I use one of my bait wells as a fish box. They are insulated and wash out with just a hose. Much easier to use compared to washing out a cooler or fish bag after every trip.

    Friction Hinges

    Yes, call Gemlux they stand behind their products.

    WTB SeaStar/BayStar Hydraulic Cylinder

    If you hunt around you can buy just the seals and not the whole gland which will save you money. I think Hercules makes the replacement seals. But make sure the ram is “baby bottom” smooth, otherwise you tear the new seals up.

    New to me 2005 TRS

    I think having three group 31 agm batteries are the way to go. Wiring them using Hobo’s diagram that allows one of the trolling motor batteries as the backup cranking battery.

    26 HPS chirp thru hull transducer

    I was going to install a B175 transducer, but since I’m going to use a 3-1 transducer, with chirp, off the stern, it made no sense to have two chirp transducers. So I’m having a B60 thru hull transducer installed.

    Best Marine Battery

    I agree, Sam’s Club AGM group 31 work great and they are less than $200 each.
  10. I’m happy with Colinite paste wax. It’s easy to apply and seems to hold up.

    Cooler drain plug

    Once you know the size, I would look in eBay.

    Fuel tank access

    In the console there is a screw down cover. Mine has four Phillips head screws holding it down. It’s right behind the console door in my boat.

    Transducer repair

    I believe they mount a thru hull transducer in your boat in a tube that goes thru your gas tank. That sounds like a professional job to me. I would call around to a number of Pathfinder dealers until I found one that had the expertise to do the job right.
  14. Both are great engines. Are your existing controls and gauges in good shape? If so, you will save money by staying with the same brand. What local dealer will likely give you the best service?

    Inshore spinning rod reccomadations

    I like Star rods, particularly the Stellar Lite series with a split grip. They are light and have a fast tip, which I prefer and don’t break the bank. I’m using 4000 series Stradics on 7’ rods. While I’ve had a few break, Star replaces them right away and overall have held up well.
