I almost put this on my boat last winter, but just flat out ran out of time. First trip out trying to co-ordinate the jack plate, trim, and tabs all at once, and...

Thanks Mike. I did go through those instructions in your link, but that was back in the winter in the shop. I'll go through it again. I do have the banner you are referring to across the top, but...

I personally wouldn't be worrying about props until you get the motor set properly. I was out on the lake yesterday recording a bunch of data to figure out my prop better. I have the benefit of a...

MotorGuide Xi5 Question

So I finally had the chance to get my boat out on the water to do some testing and make sure everything was working and my network was behaving. I was relieved to find that so far my Xi5 seems to be...

So many options out there you really need to just get on Google or Amazon and see which one you like. "Looks good" is subjective. Some are like sandpaper and very non-slip. Others are textured...

Can you buy an engine interface for it to connect it to a NMEA network?

I agree with Waxy. I try not to take mine down gravel. But my favorite lake trout waters necessitate a 25mile trip down a gravel road (at 15mph :)). I have a custom cover and stone guard. I still...

I'd try them wherever the other adult doesn't sit. I think the front is ideal and more out of the way (I think those middle benches are more valuable stow space). But as Bob mentions, you'll need...

Cleaning up the splash well has been an epic project. A lot of re-routing of wires was required, as well as ordering and waiting for rigging parts to arrive. I wanted to put an access plate in the...

With the battery gone from the stern, there didn't seem to be much point keeping the MK 106 back there. Besides, I had to upgrade it to a 2 bank charger to also charge my new electronics battery. ...

Active imaging transducers work on both the Carbons and the Lives. Livesight works direct off a Live and with a box on the Carbons. I'd hardly call that a big difference.

What have you done to ensure your battery isn't the problem? I don't recall if the low voltage alarm is something you can turn off in options, or if that alarm is always on as a safety feature. But...

Depends on the quality of the batteries as well. A big, dedicated Group 31 deep cycle battery will last a lot longer than wiring into the cranking battery for your outboard.

I wouldn't put holes in the travel cover personally. That could cause all sorts of weird billowing issues with the travel cover. Or just cause your boat to be really dusty/dirty after a trip, which...

As has been mentioned here several times, any one of these will make a *HUGE* difference over a stock pedestal of any kind. If you believe Smooth Moves are the worst of the lot, you'll likely still...

I just replaced my circa 2009 Minn Kota MK106 and MK345 chargers. Both had it written right on the case that they worked with wet cell, AGM, and I think gel batteries.
