    Looks like water in my lower unit oil

    That was the greatest, 14 second video I have ever seen, SST! So are you back in the water after the end of that video and everything is good to go? Boat looks GREAT as usual but I still think you need custom HG Flat mount which I would be happy to do for you, just send me a design you like and what kind of wood you want to use and I'll whip one up for you in no time.

    Newbies, do you use your GPS to its fullest?

    These are not mine, but a collection from several other boating forums on this unit to show its FULL CAPABILITIES as per the title of this thread. This should show you that you can get A LOT more out of your unit no matter which one it is. Some side-scan shots that look pretty decent/ Now this is sonar detail that you can only get with an GCV 10 CHIRP at 800 kHz, but look at how outstanding it is even for fresh water boaters who would like to have these features. And of course you could hook up your Ipod to the 741XS and probably most other 700+ series models and use that for your tunes. You can run Ipod and Bluetooth and have their full functions and control on the screen. You can run your Ipod while underway and change the music from XM to Ipod to FM to bluetooth to anything all from the touch screen that's already in front of right there in front of you. One touch and its back to the chartplot screen. Many other things we'll list later.

    I'm glad you're the only one still here and not too affected by the childish behavior going on and even from me, I admit it since I have the manhood to admit unlike others. So I truly apologize to you and others reading this thread that is still great and filled with excellent info that would've had a lot more back & forth had the nonsense not happened. It's a shame they succeeded in that and others are afraid to participate because of that, so kudos to you 100x for posting occasionally. I do to the this pace as part of my Mass Audubon volunteer service and we do a program called "Winter Raptors" where we drive a bunch of people who subscribe to the program (usually fills 2 days with 3 vans) to all these certain areas in Massachusetts that are knows for certain types of birds of prey and one of them is this place. But because this trip is in winter, hence "Winter Raptors," there are a lot more eagles at that time because they include the migrating ones from Canada and Maine. This time of year will only have the year-round residents which from the info we have gathered through the years of research and counting is about 5 pairs. There could be more scattered further away from the island itself but we'll see. With raptor (or even just any bird watching), you can spend 12 hours and see absolutely nothing or in 10 minutes, see things that you never thought you would see in your lifetime. I'm bringing my Canon 70D in case we see one flying I can get a good shot of it and yes, absolutely I will post it. I'll post a pic of a close-up snowy owl that my friend Norman is licensed to catch, tag, install a transmitter device and release. Talk about beautiful pictures.

    Maybe in your mindless wet dreams lol! You got the floor wiped with your face on radar thread and the electric switch and so many others, waaaaay too many to list as well. Keep dreaming, just don't wet your pants all the time. Dude you just looked like the joker of the century just now when you were so busy going after me with anything you could find you exposed yourself for not knowing the difference between bread crumb trails and setting waypoints LMFAO! Now I could sail with that and clean the floor AGAIN, but frankly, I'd rather move on. I'll wait for your comeback although we'll be out all day today God-willing safely boating and looking for a particular destination.

    WHICH MOTOR ON A 246 SSI

    I just bought 2014 246 ssi. Has the 350 mag. 300 hp 5100 rpm does 47-48 mph and I wish it was way faster. I agree with sand man. Big block would be amazing. Get the bigger motor. For $ 3500. Should not even be a question. New chaps you can get 350 hp. they run solid. I run up the lake in 2-3 foot chop at 35-40 no problem. That feels fast. But on flat calm days. It's flat out and i just want more. Feels like it should go faster. I wish she ran in the 60's. So this winter or next I will make the mag a 383 stroker and whipple charge it. Or re power it Ooo ps. If u have the Bimini top. Take it down if your going to run flat out or on a plane or windy days. She don't like it

    Jet spray

    Love our new 2019 vortex 223. Lots of spray from the jets when pulling the kids on tubs Any adjustments to the jets to tone this down besides extending our rope 10 ft?

    Ever witness a boating accident?

    But in the Monomoy one, the biggest discussion ATM is how does a boat flip over stern over bow? A very large wave from astern. Denny

    This is for Hatem

    I was in the auto body trade for 50 years, and that is what we referred to the rear wheels not properly in alignment with the front wheels. Depending on how far out of alignment they were, determined how far side ways the car would go down the road. Denny.

    SX cobra to SX-M

    Can you bolt a SX Cobra to a SX-M transom?

    04 260 SSI Bilge Pump 4 wire to 3

    In the first pic the Brown/Orange should be the constant 12v for the float switch, the Brown/Brown wires go to the float switch, the Brown on top goes to the pump motor Brown. Bottom pic, Black to Yellow is ground. , Brown to Manual switch and pump Brown.
  17. I want to replace my old Atwood 1250 with external float with a new Rule-Mate integrated unit. The problem is that the old Float has two brown wires going into a Brown and Brown Orange plug, While the Pum has a Black and Brown. The pictures shows it below. I think its Pump Black to Boat Yellow Pump Brown to BOAT or FLOAT BROWN? Float Brown /White to BOAT Brown/Orange

    2004 SSI 260 bilge pump

    This is typical of almost all boats. I don't see the problem...

    2004 SSI 260 bilge pump

    The original Atwood 1250 float sits up on a platform in my boat (same exact as yours). Compounding that is the pump impeller sits a good half inch off hull bottom. I just bought a new RULE-MATE 1100,,however it has 3 wires, not 4. Thats in another post.

    Trailering Question

    Your winch setup looks fine and the slight bounce is not a big deal, likely not getting the bow all the way forward when loading at the ramp. +1 one the boat buckle recommendations all the way around.
  23. brclark82

    Trailering Question

    Yes I’m definitely getting the boat buckle for the bow in addition to my transom tie down when I get my actual trailer. I was just curious if that was normal for a little bounce or if I could do something different to deter it and just use the boat buckle as extra insurance. On another note...I know the winch strap is only rated to around 1500 lbs so is it possible that I could winch it too tightly? When it was bouncing I pulled over and was able to crank the winch 1 or 2 more clicks but I as I was doing it in the back of my mind I was wondering if I was possibly straining that strap too much and risking it failing.

    Yacht Device install on a 2005 Volvo GXI-E

    Oh, that's too bad. Yes, it becomes more complicated then. Next year I am selling my boat, I need a little bigger. You will be the first to know!!

    I don't have the square tachs...I think that's my issue. I think you are correct in that line of thought, but I don't have them. My gauges are entirely analog. The only digital things are my hour meters and depth finder.

    This is for Hatem

    Okay, I understand that perfectly! Thank you for that succinct explanation! I had never heard that phrase before. And what a dog does after it lays down is exactly what we all would do if we could. Thanks for the definition!

    Newbies, do you use your GPS to its fullest?

    No, I was just talking about the bread crumb trails and the fishing marks. I do have an SD card in it now. It has the updated map that Garmin released. Thanks! No, I haven't. But if you see any eagles, please post pics!

    Yacht Device install on a 2005 Volvo GXI-E

    Ok, that's too bad. I was hoping you only needed one. I "think" they asked me for my engines ser#'s. My train of thought was, if you had a Vovlo engine/s with the square tech that you had a EVC system. I guess not............
