So while I was coming in from duck hunting this morning the motor stopped peeing. I shut it down and paddled to shore. I ran a wire through the outlet line and intake holes on the bottom are clear. It'll spit a little bit of water but not a steady stream. Is the water pump going bad or is there anything else that would cause this to happen? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Cpt. Paul:

When using Insight Planner is there a way to enter a waypoint created using NAD 27 Datum and then convert it to WGS 84 Datum? I can't seem to figure out if there is an option to do that within the program. Will I just have to enter those coordinates in my HDS 7 unit in NAD 27 and then convert them to WGS 84? Thanks for your help.

Change Datum values
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Jlemoine ~

Although we may not have the same version of INSIGHT PLANNER, my program does not have a datum choice feature.

However you can access the NOAA NADCON conversion utility on their web site at ~


Or another site at http://www.coordinateconverter.com/cgi-bin/ctserve.exe?MODE=GetForm&Region=usa&Template=multi_template.ht

These will allow you to set up and enter all of your data in the correct format.

I am looking for someone reputable to install a mud boat engine for me. The promblem I am having is that it isn't an easily searchable service. I have a 16' Boats by Kirk hull and a 40 hp Kohler engine, and I'm looking to get the Kohler installed ASAP. I will also need a strut made and some metal work done to tie in the frame to the motor. I have called Boats by Kirk and he is booked until....  Read More

I have an 1999 Honda 450 electric shift. Every now and then it does not want to down shift and have to manually down shift. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it? I don't want to spend a ton of money if I can fix it myself.

How to transfer the EDGE file to your GPS
~ Captain Paul's response to: ~ Dcpp74 ~

After you complete the installation of the Garmin Home Port program, you then find the folder where you placed the LOUISIANA SPORTSMAN, CAPTAIN PAUL’S FISHING EDGE OF GPS WAYPOINTS.

That location is determined by you when you purchased the Edge program.

It may be on your Desk Top or in some other file in the Documents folder. Check it out. Then open the Home Port program and first click on the Library link and a drop down window will appear indicating the various folders in the Home Port Library.

Then click on the FILE button at the top left corner of the Home Port screen. A drop down window will appear. Click on the Import into New Folder. That drop window have a top box marked LOOK IN: Click on the arrow pointing down and a list of the files on your computer will appear. Select the folder of location where you put the EDGE file that you got from the Sportsman, then click on the .gpx or .gdb file and the program will transfer the data in to the folder in your Home Port program. Once there, click on the folder and all of the Edge waypoint will appear in the map in the Home Port program.

Once there, you can add to, delete, or edit any of these waypoints.

Then place the memory card for you GPS unit in the card reader of your computer. Once there select the EXPORT button in the Home Port program and transfer the data to a spare SD memory card to the GPS unit.

Sometime, you have to place the spare card in the card slot in the unit and turn the unit on and do any function on the screen of the GPS unit. This causes the unit to write a code to the spare card that will be recognized by the Home Port and after the transfer to the card by the GPS unit again.

Give me a call at 985-847-0536 if you need any additional help.

Keep Safe,

Captain Paul

I asked over at THT about this and several of their members referred me to your site. We just purchased a pristine Champion Bay Champ 21 and need a windscreen. It attaches with three quarter turn fasteners on the lower edge. The THT members mentioned a dealer had advertised on this site that they had some Champion parts in their inventory.

Does anyone have a line on Champion parts? The....  Read More

Thank you guys for your calls and text- I have a fishing guide friend who is looking for a 1998-2004 Kenner boat. It does not have to run, it does not need an engine-if it does have an engine that is good as well. He is going to modify it for his needs. This boat has to be boat specific. Thank you guys for your responses. Keep reeling them in. Btw I heard from Leeville that the specs have moved....  Read More

Ive had Honda dirtbikes and a three wheeler and they are by far the toughest motors. Never had a Vanguard however. Also I noticed that there is a big difference in weight for the same horsepower motor. Honda weighing more than vanguard. Can someone point me into the....  Read More

  • This picture clearly shows corrosion where the trailer bunk was bolted on.
As fishing season in Louisiana kicks into high gear most fisherman will want their rigs in a high state of readiness.
Boat trailers, especially older ones can be a pain to maintain but one issue can destroy a trailer. Corrosion!
Most trailers use treated lumber as 'bunks' or 'skids'. One of the most common sights that I see at launches from Slidell to Delacroix is....  Read More

Any feedback on how good or bad the detail is for our area on the new Garmin BlueChart g2 Vision Map?

Its a bit pricey and I don't want to commit another $300 on top of what I already spent for a new GPS. The current base maps just stink. For example, it doesn't even show the Spoil Canal next to the MRGO.
