banana Got the boat back today with Livescope mounted. They forgot to mount the Ultrex motor though. In my manly wisdom I said, well [censored] I will say a few hundred bucks and do it myself. It was not bad, but somewhere in the mix I tripped a breaker. Keep in mind, this is a new boat and I am out there with my meter, pulling fuses, finally fixed a whiskey and sprite (2:00 pm) and said @#%$. Went inside and ate lunch, then came back out and started checking again. No power to the motor. I got in positions that a 51 year old man should not get in trying to reach some of those wires. Somehow I noticed this little yellow switch and flipped it and presto, power! Took it to the lake, setup the Ultrex and messed with Livescope a little. Going to get a detailed lesson in the morning. But here are a few pics. Oh, while I was driving to put a little more time on the boat (Trying to reach that 20 hour mark) I saw something jumping. Stopped, pulled the trolling motor out and threw a jig and caught a small Bass. First fish I ever caught on Lake Tyler. Was a good day. Now I am going to take a muscle relaxer and go to bed to wake up early and jerk some crappie lips at Lake Palestine!!!!

Tip from a 61 year old...Discover magnesium Oil. It makes all those muscle aches and pains disappear without the side effects of Muscle relaxers.

Try doing working on a boat at 73 yo. It aint fun and trying to find a youngster to assist is almost impossible.

Brother I think I can associate with it. I am only 51 but have encountered a few explosions and a war in Afghanistan so the frame is a little more worn than the body if that explains it better. haha.

The short version of the long story. It came with the networked Humminbirds, but only had 2D sonar. The Lowrance I took off my old boat when I got rid of it. Was going to sell it but then realized I had no SI or DI, so I installed them. I really knew nothing about Garmin until I got the Livescope. I had a hard time with the Humminbird as it was different than Lowrance, but figured it out. I prefer Lowrance but at the same time I have not messed with a Humminbird or Garmin with SI or DI. I was happy with them originally but the new boat came with the Humminbird, so I stayed there. Not wanting to cut a new hole or have to fill in a hole I just mounted the Lowrance in addition. I get 2D on one screen and SI or DI on the other. Best of both worlds I guess.
