I had the pleasure this weekend to demo a boat I've been eyeing since it's inception. All I can say is it did not let me down. Every claim was delivered. Boat ran very shallow. At one area around 3'. It handled rough water very well and dry. At 22' the boat ran just under 50 MPH but since the motor was still in a break in period really couldn't trim it all the way out. That was with....  Read More

I am looking to buy a boat... Thinking of a jon boat or something along those lines. There are 3 of us in the family, 1 being an 8 year old kid.

We aren't doing anything crazy, just want something to maybe do some bayou fishing and take a trip up the Tchefuncte River every now and then.

What size boat do we need? I have been looking at 14' and have found both a 14' fiberglass....  Read More

Ever hear of a spot called the propane bowl or propane tank about 70 miles due south of Belle Pass and a few deg to the west? Was talking with a gentleman about a nice grouper hole. If you happen to have info on it, please message me. Would like to find it and give it a shot. Anybody care to share any info on other grouper spots?

I have a Humminbird 170 debth finder. All I have is the unit. No wiring, bracket or transducer. It's yours if you need it. Free! Works great if you need a depth finder.

Google earth waypoints to Lowrance units
I do not know of any CD or DVD that offers an instruction in the use of that unit.

I can accommodate you if you wish. If so contact me at captainpaultgps@gmail.com

Check the post that asks basically the same question or my Story in the current issue of the Louisiana Sportsmam Magazine concerning Google Earth waypoints.

Hey everybody,
I just wanted to share a how great an experience I had with Willis over at Southern Marine Specialists. I ended up with some damage to the fiber glass bottom ridge of my Bass Boat and needed a professional repair. Willis was extremely quick and flexible with my schedule. I was working a turnaround at the plant and had no time to take care of it nor could I have done a true....  Read More

I have the Elite 7 HDI. What Edge download will I need for it to work on my GPS. The Lowrance-Eagle of the generic GPX File. Thanks for your help.

EDGE for a Lowrance system
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Skeeter ~

Either file should work with your Lowrance data transfer program. The Edge for Lowrance systems has both the .gpx file and the Lowrance .usr files.

You should get Lowrance’s data transfer program they call INSIGHT PLANNER. This program can be found as a “For Sale” item on the Lowrance web site in their mapping section. The program allows you to safely transfer data between a SPARE memory card your computer and your GPS unit. This data program is included in their INSIGHT Mapping programs or as a stand alone as the PLANNER version.

Basically, you save the file to a folder in your computer, open the INSIGHT program and import the file into the program. Once there you can edit the data, add additional, or delete waypoints, routes, and track data.

By using the INSIGHT program, it ensures that the data is in the proper format for the GPS unit. However, depending on the version of the operating software in your unit, you may be able to just copy the .usr or the .gpx file directly to a spare memory card. To test this type of transfer without the Insight program, place a spare memory card in your GPS unit and transfer (save) the waypoints to the memory card. Then, place the card in your card reader and view the file suffix file (.gpx or .usr) on the card. Then copy the corresponding Edge file to your card.

The Edge file has a READ ME and an instruction file in Word format that will assist you in getting the Edge data into your GPS unit.

Contact me if you need any additional information.

I've got a few questions for y'all.

We just moved down here to St. Tammany Parish and brought along a canoe and a kayak. I've got a Minn Kota Endura 45 for the canoe. I've never used the thing, but am excited to get it wet VERY soon.

Here are where my questions arise.

First, do I need to register my canoe if I am going to have the trolling motor attached to it? ....  Read More

I have a 2006 2 stroke 25hp Johnson that I frequently run through mud. The indicator line often gets blocked at the point where the plastic hose barb is attached to the block. To remedy this, I replaced with a series of larger brass parts terminating in a 3/8' id plastic hose. The water now flows through it like a garden hose. I have run it in the driveway with the earmuffs and it did not....  Read More

I have a 1648 alumacraft john boat that I am rigging as a duck/fishing boat. The transom has been reinforced with stainless tube struts. Transom wood is being replaced. Not having any experience with a SD type motor, I am curious as to what HP I should be looking for to get the best performance from this rig. I'm not a speed merchant, but do want to be able to run the river and backwaters so it....  Read More

I was wondering what some consider too many hours on a 2009 Yamaha 115 four stroke used in fresh water only. Fluids changed when they were supposed to be and fleet maintained. Boat seems like a good deal, but hours have me concerned. 1001 on the meter. Thanks all.

I have a 25hp mariner that someone gave me. The problem is it went under water during hurricane Isaac & is locked up. He said he didn't have time to mess with it & just put it up. I was wondering if someone can give me tips on freeing up the motor & if I get it free, will it be fine without tearing motor down & changing parts?
