    My Garmin 740s died - need replacement

    I left Garmin a few years ago when I constantly found myself up on the shore line when I was fishing the 10k's. I went Simrad 9" EVO2; however, the newer one are really pricey - EVO3. The other option, which I have run and like are the new Lowrance plotters with the fast chips...easy to use and very accurate. dc

    Electrical problem

    The other solution, which I use, is to wire it to one of the trolling motor batteries directly with an inline fuse. Smoak352 is correct on the draw...I had a 2005 Pathy and had the exact same problem DC

    Maverick HPX-T 15hrs

    When Capt Donh used to let me run the "T"....we had a few stories.....one of my best was when DonH and I were running South off the 10K's....we were heading to Semimonle point on a negative low...I was running the T, we were about 1 mile off shore, so I wasn't paying attention....I was rock'n to Lady Gaga on the stereo and Don pokes me and yells, "Hey, are those birds standing up there? " Holy trim the motor and lift the tabs BATMAN !!!!.....we literally ran over standing birds (no-one was injured and then just as I thought we were "ok"....we heard the secret call of Chokoloskee - woooo woooo wooooo and then the scraping of the sand....we were standing in in just about shoe high water and we got her to "float" without the fat captain (me) and captDonH out....he weighs less but, we had to push a bit, then on our way. Do they run shallow Heck yeah but you do need water (LOL)....they do better in black-country 10K mud because you can slide a bit longer That's another story dc

    Seastar helm clicking

    Good decision....I had a helm issue on my Pathy that I kept putting off...same thing, click click click....almost laid it up on an oysterbar in a sharp turn in Chokoloskee one afternoon on the way home....errrrr....turn right ? nothing happens? slam on the breaks? Yep, almost, glad I was going slow as I normally do in the bars.....next day, bought a new one, self installed, took about 2 hours, lots of bads words said, cracked knuckles and bleeding fingers and a few adult beverages afterwards.

    Trolling motor

    @OP 24V wiring can be very dangerous.....you can burn up "stuff" very quickly....if wiring is incorrectly put in place If you can take very detailed pictures of your set up and post them, forum members can provide guidance....it sounds like you have a 1/2/all switch that is running off the trolling motor batteries (very common and what i use). What JH is spot on.....trace all the wiring and post pics.... dc

    Cool....no Corona in Choko....only Malaria from Mosquito bites (jajajaja). I have heard the fishing has been good if you can find a point to yourself....last report said the line was down to the bridge from Outdoor Resorts last week for truck parking The feeesssh will be under a lot of pressure and the constant roar of the skiffs during the day.....not good dc
