  1. I don't fish either but I'm thinking that with the right unit I can do sweeps for large objects under the boat. I was hoping to keep the kids from jumping onto a tree or something.
  2. Does anyone have a trusted boat tech/dealer for Chaps in the Springfield/Nixa, MO area? (65801, 65714). I'm not looking for something you can google but past experience. Thanks!
  3. I like it. I looked it up and with the transducer, mounting, protective gear, etc... and it comes in reasonable. Would you DIY the through hull transducer yourself or just play it safe and have it done?
  4. What is the best prop for my Mercruiser 5.0L? Pitch? 3 by 3, 4 by 3, 4 by 4? My main goal is to get skier on top of the water. I don't care about top speed being that I will most likely hang around 28 mph.
  5. What would you guys recommend to put into my console? The parts guide refers to a Garmin 530 (no longer available). I don't fish and have zero desire to start but it would be nice to know if my kids were jumping into a tree minefield. I am looking for something that will get me from point A to point B without much thought. It will probably never see the coast and spend most of the time in the Midwest lakes. I realize everyone has a favorite but I'm looking for something to remember where the rope swings, bathrooms, and other funness. Thanks in advance!
  6. I recently purchased a 2008 Sunesta with 80 hours on the Mercruiser 5.0 engine. The problem I am having is that it won't plane out if anyone is sitting in the back seat. I was thinking just changing the plugs, wires, filters, and oil might help but I'm not sure. If I put 4 adults up front and two in the captains chairs it will plane out okay but not great. Shouldn't this take off with no trouble only carrying 6 adults (two up front, two in captain's chairs, and to in backseat) with 3 kids tubing?
