    Sea... I will tell you, on Saturday, I wanted to run the Ghost to check out the over-heating....all solved, with COTO..... We were at Chokoloskee at 0600, boat in the water at 615am..we had a second cup of coffee and wait for light to run the S curve and head out...there were maybe 6 boats at the ramp...so, I thought, should be a good day..... I was excited....a week after the full moon disaster of the previous week with Mike.....4 foot tide....outgoing.....hooraaah.... By 0730, we had moved 6 times without a strike......oh, I'm sorry, one ladyfish...who I think was lost...

    Josh, Have been able to assess the fuel tank...you have a 2003 which means an 18 year old fuel cell... You might want to do a full pressure test on it while it's empty....as you know, what I thought was a simple fuel cell replacement turned into a massive rebuild of the area between the stringers and new foam....an extra few $$$$ in labor and glass...but, I know she's sold as a rock.... Just thinking with her in this position....easier to do now than later.....my tank was 27 years old....not leaking...but, pitting in a few key areas was forming and we estimated it was maybe anot

    XM Sirus and Lowrance Weather Overlay FOR FMT

    JH, thank you....yes, I figured it out....I did not have all the attributes turned on....I was out this morning here in FLL and I could see the clouds and rain building....I did not have the correct settings...after I found it, I could see the clouds, lighting, and rain estimates on the simulator. BTW, I'm not sure I'd de-install the Navionics system...on mine, the FMT is on a card...and if you were to have a "chip read failure"...you'd be without GPS...I understand most of us really "don't need GPS in the areas we fished for many years"....just saying...I did, this mor
  10. I bought the service and when using my FMT (here in FLL) - I touched the CHART OVERLAY function when in FMT - I lost the google earth view. Is this normal? When out on the water, do you have to flip back and forth when using FMT to the Navionics chart? dc

  14. My 1995 115V Yamadog was over-heating at 5,000 rpms. I had installed a new impeller, two new thermostats and the pressure relief valve.... still overheating... Given the age of the engine, 27 years, I spoke with John and he said most likely it was going to be the water jackets were clogged. Rather than do this myself, I decided for a few hours of professional time, I'd take it to John. On Wednesday I got the call....John started by saying, I have some bad news.....I thought, here it comes... He said, the jackets were clean....some slight corrosion build, but, noth

    It doesn't hurt to ask

    I run a global juice and ingredients supply chain and I can tell you it's absolutely NUTS......container rates from the far east have gone from $2500 to $15K if you can get one to load on-time. one of my friends is looking to build a skiff and he's had to wait over 1 year to just get in the molds due to lack of availability of an engine from Yamaha. good luck in finding your unicorn.... dc
