  1. I spoke to the people at acme battery last week, I was told that if I wanted to run 3 graphs, fuse box and be able to start the motor without problems on a single battery to up to a group 31. If you're using an onboard charger don't all the batteries have to be the same kind?
  2. Same as above. I wouldn't go any smaller than a 500, with a 600 you will have plenty of capacity. last season I used Okuma Convectors, which are a cheaper LC in a 500 size with 100LB braid. They've been good. I wouldn't go any lower with the line LB, it has saved me from losing a bait or three lol.Was also looking at getting Tekota's also, in the 600 size.
  3. There’s a place on Kenora St in Hamilton by the transfer station that does boat covers. I had then do a repair for me a couple years ago.
  4. This is the reason I seldom post fishing pictures online.If I do I blur or alter the background or make the person turn to open water so it’s harder to recognize. We put a lot of time and effort into finding those spots and it could take no time for them to be blown up.
  5. The BBC channel is also free right now on fibe. All day documentaries with David Attenborough. He could talk about grass growing and I would listen. Watched the new Star Wars IX on the box last night. Good watch, would give it a 4/5.
  6. Yes I would only like to this once. Should I replace the old panel with the Blue Sea one or should I put it in addition to the old? If I did go that route and add another fuse panel, would I have to add additional inline fuses for each unit? Out of the box they don't come with any. Wouldn't the panel fuses be enough? Wouldn't it be better to have less breaks in the wire? If I did wire them direct to the battery would having the original fuse panel, 3 graphs and a charger be too many connections on one battery?
  7. I will put an inline fuse if do the direct connection to the battery. If I put shrink tube over the crimp connections wouldn't it make it moisture proof as well? What size crank battery do you have? As I will be running the same size graphs.
  8. Is 6 gauge wire to heavy of a gauge? Humminbird website says with the longest runs I should use 12G for both units with an inline fuse, 3amp for the 7's and 4amp for the 9. Will coiling up the transducer wire and taping the coil together cause interference? Unfortunately I don't have enough room to have a second battery for just the accessories. So I would out the graphs on first then the bank charger on top?
  9. Lmao Just finished watching 1917. Was a decent movie out of 5 I would give it a 3. Ok movie overall, cinematics and story were good. Just a few parts didn't sit well. Also watched the Coldest Game last night on Netflix. That was pretty good too. An alcoholic mathematician trying to stop the cold war lol. Not bad overall I'd give it a 3. Ford v Ferrari is on the list to watch.
  10. Hey guys, my question is, should I wire the graphs into the fuse box of the boat or should I direct connect them to the crank battery? I have just enough space for everything on the fuse box however I've read conflicting reports that when starting the motor it may or may not cause the graphs to power down. If I do connect the graphs to the box what gauge wire should there be from the battery to the fuse box as it would be full at that point. I'm unsure what I should do. If I go the battery route, that would be three graphs and an on-board charger on the crank. Is that too many things? Any info is helpful as this is my first attempt.
  11. Ice may be gone, however I'm pretty sure pike season is closed until May there. I could be wrong, but there is a billboard in the parking lot with the regs/info. The harbour could be a good choice, around the Williams/Pier 4 area. If the season is open.
  12. Which is more of a bummer to me then the sportsman show as that happens every year and this is every other year. Was hoping to get my hands on a few new baits that I don't have. More than likely now all of the bait makers are going to raffle off their baits online, which I think is stupid.
  13. You should also check out Doug Vahrenberg's channel on youtube. His channel is primarily about HB units. I found him helpful.
  14. The Musky Odyssey is also cancelled, I have just read online.
