    Thru Hull replacement Issue

    No kidding! What do you do; go under there and polish those? The chrome is gone on mine and down to the brass. I do have a timeline to replace them along with the valves however. O.P. before the cap goes on it is real easy to install that fitting, but do agree they should have used a more durable product. My Angler from factory 21 years ago did, that's why I am down to brass now.

    Bored Fisherman

    Tri-Fecta All 50%! Dang, we all need to get a life outside of fishing & boating! But until then I will go rub my new to me engine!

    There goes my weekend !!!

    Look, everyone is under alotta stress right now. We are navigating uncharted waters, no map, Garmin, no FMT, nothing. Hopefully it will all be over soon and we will be back to our normal lives. But right now we have to do our part. Breath everyone, this site is the only one that has normalcy and common sense when it comes to post's so let's not blow it now!

    Geesh, give South Florida a break! They were in the Pan Handle area of North Florida. And besides, were not all ***holes down here! But if you want to talk stolen boats, maybe it would be in South Florida.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Seriously Troy! What were you bored?

    Highway 41 Coming Alive!

    It was literally a game. I was using the good ol'e Rapala original floater and every time I would twitch it they would all come over ones you didn't even know were there, let alone when you caught a bass and it started jumping, very sporting! Good news is I did not lose a fish to the gators nor hook a gator. There are probably 6-7 more you don't see in the shadows and under the bridge and to the right. The big one was directly under me at the bridge.

    Highway 41 Coming Alive!

    Took a drive from Dade into Collier to see what was happening and do some fishing. Very dry dry fish are stacked up in the canals. Caught some nice bass 3-5 pounds, some snooklets along 29 just before the light at 41. Nighttime snooking along the trail is going to be ramping up now and next month. Caught a lot of fish and probably no COVID19 out there either. I was looking for alligators but did not see any!

    Just add up the amp draw of all loads round it off and add 10%/15% to that and make that your main line fuse and start from there. I prefer a main line breaker in the event of a dead short like something hitting the terminal. Personal preference only manufacturers don't do it..

    Guest ProCharge not charging

    Agreed. I had my trolling motor wire get caught in the mount, and broke the insulation, well after noticing my trolling motor not performing like she did I checked everything up to male plug AND then female plug to motor and found the issue. I had a breaker partially pop and cause a low voltage issue.

    There is a place called B&R Electronics in the falls warehouse area, off of 129th terr & 87th ave. They carry a large supply of marine wire, heatshrink, and terminals. It is a mom & pop type outfit. You might want to think about giving them a try, I know how expensive it can get. Also Andy and his crew at El Capitan, he has a catalog and get you just about anything you need for a boat at great pricing! US1 and about 142nd street.

    Where are you located in South Florida? I would stick to the critical systems; Nav lights, bilge pumps, etc. and get your feet wet there. They are a simple 2 or 3 wire system.

    Hang tough

    Yeah, the media told me the other day all public boat ramps in Miami Dade county parks are closed! So much for being on the water. Guess I'm headed West into the Everglades, unless the gators are getting the virus?☢️
