Too much!!

I would say that I average between $1,500 and $2,000 a year. I try to keep up on electronics and trolling motors, I do like to get a new rod & reel once in awhile and for tackle I do add new every...

Stainless all the way. I would never run an aluminum prop, less performance, easier to blow out and not as durable. I had an "incident" with some rocks when going through some rapids in Canada a...

Yes, the power cable is the same for the gen 1 & new G2N Helix's. In fact it is also the same as the older 700, 800, 900 and 1100 series units. I just replaced a 959 with a Helix 10 G2N and used...

Having had both......the only way I would ever own another tiller is if I could have 2 boats. I wouldn't trade the protection of the windshield for anything.

Ranger 1880 MS

Only one G2 200. The other is a G2 200 HO which is the larger displacement. Both are V6 engines. I agree I'm sure it's the 200, not the 200 HO.

Ranger 1880 MS

That's lame! The Opti weights less than Verado!! What's the point in increasing the rating to 200 if you're limited on what 200's you can put on the boat?? I get the Verado L6, that's a big heavy...

The Verado L4 200 is 510 pounds and the Optimax 200 is 505 pounds, I would think that either would be an option from Merc on the 1880 MS.

The MS changes to the 2080 might be just what they need to start selling more. I'd go that route over a 620 all day long, and I'm sure I'm not alone......

That's what I thought. Plenty of real estate on the screen to spit it 4 ways, especially on the Helix 12. Lowrance has been doing a 4 way split since the Gen1 HDS's.

It's the worst year for mice I have every seen here in MN. All the rain this summer has them pushed out of the low land. I even had a rat get trapped in one of my window wells last week, first rat...

Prop & Engine Height

I would start with a new stainless 4 blade prop. Aluminum props really hurt performance on boats with a 150 HP motor or bigger, I wouldn't even own an aluminum prop. A lot of people like the...

New Prop

Sounds like a new lower pitch prop might get the RPM's up and would probably increase speeds as well. Not sure if your using a 3 blade or 4 blade but going to a 4 blade would give you more lift ...

Very Nice!

Looks like the perfect 18' boat to me! I love my 1860 Angler but all of the changes that they made to the 1880 MS are ones that I have wished I had in my 1860, mostly the jump seats, 200 HP motor...

Two for sure!

I would go 2 for sure! At a minimum two Helix 9's, one with just Sonar/GPS and the other with SI. When running use one for GPS/Map and the other for Sonar. When fishing split the screens and use 1...

You can upgrade the software, but I believe the new iPilot and iPilot Link are totally different hardware, thus you won't be able to just update the software to get the new improvements.
