  1. Sounds like a plan!
  2. Bummer. But completely understandable. Best of luck, Duane. Let's try to get together sometime.
  3. Just skimming the topic, but wow. DarkMantle has a 2007 model, mpm has a 2009 and both of you have sink drains to the sump box. FWIW, I have a 2008 and the only thing that goes to the sump box is the shower drain and the air conditioner condensation. Both sinks have their own thru-hulls. VERY odd.
  4. Yeah, the concentration may not ever get too high, but I have absolutely had the detector go off while underway. Until I learned (and read the placard) to never run while the cabin door is open. It's a shame, I like the airflow through the cabin for my kid and his friends who sometimes like to ride down below on a warm day.
  5. Ummm....That is dangerous advice! It can absolutely get CO in the cabin underway. As The Great Escape above stated...station wagon effect. I've seen it personally.
  6. +1 Almost same boat as you, DarkMantle. You don't want it loose and making noise. Get it out in the sun, then try it. It's tough and will kill your fingers, but worth it to be tight.
  7. Good thread! I've been meaning to do this for a while. Ordered a couple off McMaster-Carr just now!
  8. Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
  9. Paddle wheel units can often be calibrated. I know the one for my old Raymarine C70 could be easily calibrated via software to match GPS speeds.
  10. Yes, see the photo below.
  11. Go to this navionics web app and you can see the "charts" for Broken Bow. https://webapp.navionics.com/#boating@6&key=%3F%3F
  12. BEAUTIFUL lake! We spent the night on the hook a few weeks ago (first time visit) and had a great time. There's only one marina but the lake is deep...very deep and very clear. There are MANY islands...most easily visible and charted but there is one rock outcropping near the busy route to/from the marina. The north 3/4 of the lake shorelines are lined with underwater trees...no good for beaching or even anchoring near shore. However there is a great near-shore anchorage on the south side near the marina and dam. There are some other beach areas around the same area. I say go! We had a great time and I'd love to go again. Let me know what other questions you might have and enjoy this video I took there a few weeks ago.
  13. I had to practically destroy the transducer when I removed it, so I just junked it. The DSM unit took up so much space and I was hapy to also sell it on eBay. My replacement unit (Raymarine eS78...I replaced a C70 so smaller than your C80) doesn't require the DSM. HUGE plus! Regarding the GPS antenna...not sure. You might have need for it later, but the new MFD units have GPS built in.
  14. Not the diesels. Only for the Hemis. Trust me I checked. We bought a Durango and got the lifetime warranty. When we went to buy the Cummins 2500, we found that they didn't offer it on the diesels. We got a long extended warranty, but not the lifetime.
  15. Sell your C80 on eBay. You'll be surprised what you can get for it!
