  1. What heater are you using

    My wheelhouse is 6 1/2'x12'. I use an Empire 15,000 and it heats it very well. I have 1 1/2" white foam insulation in the walls and ceiling with an uninsulated floor.
  2. What heater are you using

    I use an Empire Direct Vent with 1x2" studs. To get the 4 1/2" distance you use a vinyl siding kit on the outside of the wall.
  3. Clam Arctic Warrior

    I like to leave the bail open, pull the line back to the butt end of the rod and wrap a rubber band over it to hold it. When a fish hits it pulls the rod tip down and pulls the line out from under the rubber band. All you have to do is close the bail and reel the fish in. The number of wraps of the rubber band determines the tension on the line.
  4. Direct vent heater

    Bought my Empire direct vent from Fish House Supply. A sponsor and a lot cheaper than my local propane dealer. Heats my 6 1/2 x 12 wheel house with no problems.
  5. Issues with Hummingbird 597ci

    I had the same problem with my 597 reading "loading charts" for long periods of time and doing other off the wall things. I had to shut the unit off and turn it on again to get the maps working again. A new map chip solved the problem for me. I put a new starting battery in my boat a couple weeks ago and still get "Low bat" on the screen after the engine has been off for an hour or so.
  6. Boat Cover

    I bought a snap down travel cover through Lund which was made by Shoremaster Fabrics.I have had it for seven years and it still fits like a glove. Their site has a list of boats they make covers for.

  8. question on a strikemaster honda light

    You can run it in any position.
  9. wheel pivot grease Amsoil or Mystic

    Been using Mystic on my wheelhouse pivots since 2006 with good results. I have only pulled the pivots apart, cleaned them up and greased them once. I do shoot grease into the grease fittings and pivot the axles both ways as far as they will move about once per season.
  10. wheel pivot grease Amsoil or Mystic

    Been using Mystic JT6 since 1974 with good results Don't believe it's a synthetic I'm having. A hard time finding it around here now.
  11. Hummin Bird Electronics

    Why not put a Vexilar DD-100 digital battery and depth gauge on your FL18?
  12. To glow or not to glow......

    Glow here too.
  13. Wall thickness for direct vent

    I used a vinyl siding kit which gave me the correct thickness.
  14. I have a jump starter rated at 1150 amps and it starts my 150 Verado with no problems.
  15. LED replacement bulbs

    Bought my 1141 LED replacement bulbs on an online auction site.
