    Side imaging or Down imaging?

    One thing I've always wondered is how the SI transducer is mounted so the signal on one side doesn't get blocked by the motor.

    How big Tiller w/out tilt and 1992 40HP Yamaha ok?

    I also have a Mariner 40 on one of my boats. I've never had a time I wished I had tilt/trim - never thought about it.

    Targeting walleyes during the spawn?

    I agree that it doesn't matter if the female is caught during the season or during spawning making the net result the same. My issue is that there is a large concentration of the bigger fish in a small area making them much more vulnerable. A few people catching a bunch of the big ones there will have more of an impact.

    Targeting walleyes during the spawn?

    I doubt that they will still be spawning by Memorial Day anyway.

    Targeting walleyes during the spawn?

    My personal opinion is that it isn't ethical to target walleyes during the spawn. I wouldn't do it nor would I help someone else do it.

    Relocating battery

    I don't think you want to ground the electronics or motor or anything else to the hull. Run ground wires for everything back to the battery. If the hull is grounded and a hot wire touches the hull, you will get sparks. If that happens in the area of the fuel tank you may have a problem.

    what is this?

    Thanks. That's the answer I was hoping for.

    what is this?

    Are these zebras or normal snails? They are about 1/16" across. I left the electric motor in the water for a week and there were a few hundred on it when I pulled it up. I took the photo with my phone and it might not be clear enough. mussels

    15 hp yamaha 4 stroke trouble

    I guess I was bombed for putting a link to a possible answer in another forum. Here's part of the content: This motor uses an enrichment system called Prime Start. There is an additional fuel passage that allows more fuel into the mixture for cold starts. After about 5 minutes of run time this passage is closed by a needle valve that is actuated by the charge coil voltage going through a heating coil. So it is not a choke as it does not restrict air like a choke plate, but it does increase the fuel to air mixture, similar result. Your issue is most likely that either the idle speed is too low or that the air/fuel mixture on the carb needs to be richer. The problem is that the EPA tells dealers that they are not supposed to touch the mixture screw and it is covered by a pressed in plug. Don't twist the throttle, this only adds more air during a cold start. The motor may need a re-start or two, but once it gets a little warm you should be good to go. Otherwise, your dealer may be willing to adjust your carb for you, should be a simple enrichment and you're on your way.
