Where do I go to purchase the Edge(Grand Isle/Leeville) programs for the Lowrance Elite 5 DSI? I have looked on the Outdoor Store and do not see where it can be purchased?

This is just my opinion but I wish folks would stick to listing guns only in the guns catagory--there seems to be too many items for trade----or so many duplicate adds. We all may be willing to trade any thing for a gun but the guns catagory is getting flooded with too much non gun stuff....

Hoping someone can help?



I purchases a used FEMA trailer for a deer camp. The hot water heater seems to work as it takes ice cold Well Water and warms it, but it doesn't get HOT. Does anyone know if these trailers have a thermostat on the hot water heater that can be adjusted to turn up the heat? I believe the water heater is the RV Atwood model. I searched the web to no avail. Thanks for any.... Read More

I have a couple of spinning reels that I use for trout that I am going to take the mono off and put braid on. I would like some opinions on what lb. to use , your suggestion of the brand, and do I need to do anything different when using it to fish a plastic under a cork. Thanks for any advice as I have only used it once on a baitcaster and was overwhelmed with backlashes! Good luck.

Does anyone know where I can get someone to put an aluminum deck in my new 14' Lowe Jon boat. I am looking for someone in the Baton Rouge area.

Capt. Paul,

Like so many I just purchased a new Garmin 1040XS Chart Plotter/Sonar unit. I find the g2 mapping terrible to say the least. I have seen in previous conversations yousuggested Navionics and Nautic Insight SD cards. Is there anything you can suggest to fix this mapping problem for me with this unit.

Garmine Marine mapping
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~RRKE~

First, you have a very, very good GPS unit. It will serve you well with the proper mapping.

Yes, I have mentioned different mapping programs, but not for your particular unit. Garmin offers a Garmin g2 which is based on NOAA Marine Charts, which are not the best type mapping for the Louisiana coastal marshes. I personally prefer a mapping system based on USGS Topographic maps for our marshes. Garmine offers this type of mapping but not for your marine unit. I suggest you contact Garmin at 1-800-800-1020 and verify this info.

But now back to your dilemma, Garmin also offers a Garmin g2 VISION for your particular unit. It is a combo of Marine Charts and Ortho Corrected aerial photo map that can be installed in your unit. It, when installed, offers the user the ability to switch between the Chart mode and the Aerial Photo choices.

Go to a stocking Garmin dealer and ask to see the g2 Vision mapping. They are sold by different areas. View the Vision mapping and zoom in on a particular area you know and go to the aerial view mode. If the program meets your requirements, then your problem is solved.

This is one of the most accurate mapping that is currently available for your unit.

Gents I'm looking for some suggestions on a reputable business in the Lake Charles area I can use for a metal shop in my back yard. I know many of you have these and this is going to be my first experience having one of these built so any info would be helpful. I'm not exactly sure of the size I want because I have no idea how much these buildings can run. Any info on who to call and more.... Read More

I am looking for some help from you fellow 24 2005 Baychamp owners. My boat is kept in Venice and I live in Arkansas. I am wanting to replace my washdown pump, but I forgot to look at what pump is currently in the boat before I left last time. Could one of you please look and tell me what pump we have in the boat so I can buy a replacement before I head back down to Venice?

Thank you.... Read More

I have a 2007 Honda rancher, that runs fine, but when I stop and let it idle, it kills and back fires when I try to start it again.
I ran a tank of mid grade ethanol free gas through it and it ran great,when I filled it up again I put regular ethanol gas in it and the problems started.
Could it be the grade of gas or is there something else that could be causing the problem. The bike.... Read More

I have a Kenner 2103 and am wondering how hard it is to get to the fuel tank to change out the fuel gauge sending unit. Has anyone done this before?


Thanks

I am looking at buying a diesel generator for my boat but I am very limited on space so I am limited on what I can buy. Anything over 27' in length I can't use. Here are some I found that will fit. Fischer Panda, Mase, Mastervolt Wisper, Lombardini. I have found several bad reviews on Mase but very little on anything else. Lombardini is more affordiable than the other besides Mase. Any.... Read More

I have a 2012 18 ft. Go - Devil boat with a 35 hp surface drive. I'm asking 8000 for the boat, motor, and trailer. I just put a brand new wheel on the motor that hasn't even touched the water. Call Micah @ 504-452-4123 if interested and I'll send additional pics.

Capt Paul - or anyone else with an opinion

I am not sure if you can say one way or the other but I was hoping you can point me in a specific direction. I am about to purchase a GPS/Sonar unit for my console and a sonar unit for the front of my boat. I am looking at the Humminbird 859ci HD (front) and Humminbird 678c HD (bow). I also am looking at the Lowrance Elite 7x HDI (bow) and.... Read More

The way to go!
Either should suit tour GPS and sonar needs. But I suggest that you first check what internal maps are available and their prices.

Then go to a stocking dealer and actually view the unit with the maps/charts you need.

Do your home work before you actually purchase the system.
