Garmin echomap 73cv issues

Did you try hooking it up where your 73sv is mounted? If you are 100% sure you have power to the unit and it doesn’t turn on, it’s broke and needs to be repaired. Nothing else you can do. Unfortunately i can’t swap them out the power cables are slightly different. But i did take the power cables an...

35 Vs 40 hp

When i had nothing in the hull but me a battery and a gas tank i once had it up to 30 playing w the trim pin. Would i like a 40, hell yeah, but on a cho...

Float pods?

I've got a 1648 alumacraft mod v ncs with a 25 Yamaha 4 stroke and have been debating it myself for a bit now. So I'm definitely interested in some other people's opinions also. My theory which i assume is yours, is that i have a lot of weight in the back, motor, cmc, 2 batteries, gas tank, my fat a...

1648 jon boat

From the many thread I have read the past couple of months, the Alumacraft is a well liked and respected name. A 1648 should be a very stable ride. It is and for the price you can't beat it. It's kinda like he Jeep Wrangler of boats, they're bare bones when you get them and the sky is the limit. If...

Buying a Bare Hull

I bought my alumacraft 1648 mod v Sierra aa a bare hull. Nothing on it once so ever. That's half the fun, they're like the boating version of s Jeep Wrangler. You can cut in hatches as you please and if you want you can buy a storage box/ livewell from ak mccallum or directly from alumacraft. Sent f...

Twin Tiller Outboards on a Tin

Well I'm watching this one lol. I think when larger boats have twins the props spin opposite to stop it from cavitation but with two 6s idk if that's an issue. It's a shallow v is be careful but my best guess would be to get them both running in neutral, start with one and kick the other one on. Mak...

Do issues at all, keeps the shaft from hanging way over the port side too.

Lowe 1648m first build

I just bought the same trolling motor and was planning on mounting it in the same location with the same exact mount in my head. Always feels good when you can see a plan come to reality before you actually have to do it. What size thrust and shaft did you go with? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Minn Kota Vantage 12v

I have one I bought new and have had no problems with it but have heard of complaints similar to this and it was the circuit board. Haven't got around to trying to fix it yet but that's my fear. A 220 dollar part idk if it's worth fixing. I think i just but the bullet on it. Sent from my iPhone usi...
