    Minn Kota Ulterra or Terrova

    Thanks. This the way I have been advised and have dicided on the manual deploy. As for the price. It was built into the deal. The manual deploy is a 55lb. I am looking at changing the lowrance to the hummingbird and getting the I pilot link.

    Minn Kota Ulterra or Terrova

    Hello All, I have just bought a Quintrex 510 Fontier at the Boat show. Did the deal with a Minn Kota Terrova . Thinking I may upgrade to the Ulterra with the self deploy an stow function. Has anyone had or heard of any good or bad experiences with the Minn Kota Ulterra with the self deploy? As i have heard that they have had some warranty issues...

    Electrical problem

    Turn the battery switch to No2 and charge both batteries at the same time. If your charger does not come up to being fully charged, then one of your batteries are gone.

    Electrical problem

    What are the voltages on each of the batteries. You may not be getting the required voltage from one battery alone.

    sydney boat show

    I went today and it was good. Caught the train and light Rail there and then walked up to Town Hall station and caught the train on the way. Seems a bit better laid out this year, but I thought that there was not as many exhibitors. On the plus side I bought a Quintrex 510 Frontier with all the accessories that I wanted. In my opinion there are some great deals this year as well..

    Thinking of buying a Quintrex 510 Frontier... Would anyone have any private reviews that they could share of the Frontier range? Thanks in advance

    Buying a boat etiquette

    I have sold everything from a 12ft tinny to a 45 foot cruiser. All I want is a fair price for me (the seller) and them the buyer. I do not tolerate demanding or rude buyers, nor tyre kickers. Water Testing a boat is way different to test driving a car. A car you can easy drive around a block. A boat you may need to travel some distance to a boat ramp, then after the test you need to wash boat and trailer flush the motor and then pack away - this all takes a whole lot more effort than a car. All I request, is some commitment from the Buyer. If they are not happy to provide that commitment, I will also walk away from a sale as a seller. There is always a genuine buyer out there when you sell at the right price.

    If you want a test drive, that is fine and I would be more than happy to take an interested buyer out for a test run, only after we negotiated a price and they place a deposit. There are too may people out there wanting a boat ride with no commitment. Also, I have found this very annoying (for me) practice creeping into the used market lately, where people ask you what is you best price. I now place a comment within my advert as follows:- "Please do not ring or message me asking my best price.... The listed price is clearly visible. If you are interested, please send me an offer or better still come and have a look and then I will be happy to negotiate $$$$...."

    Battery help

    Have you load tested the batteries? Maybe time for new batteries.......

    Hydraulic steering

    It is a great option. Just make sure you change the oil. as like all oils, it will absorb moisture.

    Typical of the self righteous condescending people of the Sutherland Shire. Moved out of Greenhills Beach estate and can not wait to move up North for all the reasons listed above.
