My boat has been in the fix'em up shop for a few months. Ordering parts and what not.. I also told them they could take thier time as I wasn't in a hurry to get it back. It originally went in to get the steering cables replaced as it was getting hard to turn(not a good thing at 55 mph).. and I told them since it was there, go ahead and Winterize it...well, during that, they found I had blown the seal on my lower unit..replaced that... and also blew out both trailer berring buddies(which I had replaced mid season?)... anyway.. got the bill finaly... and it hurts.. pert near $850

Dang I hate when that happens!

Or not making it to the lake, axle on the ground! grin.gif Mine is going in in a couple weeks, Kinda scared! thinking it might be cheaper to trade boats!(lol)

Ebass- I have a 2002 Triton TR186PDC with a 150 Johnson pushing it. Great boat, great storage for an 18.5 foot boat. I was actually thinking of selling it this year. I only have 3 more payments on it. But looks like I might hold on to it one more season. Then I am tradin her in.

Hiya -

Most people don't realize this, but the word 'boat' is actually an acronym... Break Out Another Thousand...

    • I think Parise has been great this year, like his old self,  one of the few bright spots during a slow start. Liking Greenway more and more, he isn't producing yet but he looked good last night, really starting to use his size out there. Need to see more out of Coyle and Nino. 
    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
