  1. I've wondered about this issue too. Is it possible to mount it right on the keel? I'd be very worried about hitting it on something but curious if it can be done that way.
  2. This is such a cool little boat Dave. If you do go 25kn it’s going to be a rush!

    Awesome, thanks Plethora! That's exactly the kind of thing what I was hoping to find.

    Saving GPS marks

    Thanks guys, I really appreciate all the replies. The old unit is the HDS Gen 2 also. It's not so much the transferring marks between toys that I want to achieve, it's the ability to mess around with them on the computer rather than standing in the boat to do it. The old "EasyGPS" program that I used for a now ancient sounder was great for this. Especially for those times when you're heading to a new place and you have 20 GPS marks that you want to enter into your unit before you go. It's so much quicker if you can do it on a keyboard. I found EasyGPS online but couldn't get it to work so I was hoping there might be something more current out there. As my library of marks grows however the need for this these days is diminished so it's no big deal I suppose.

    Thanks guys, I know the SD card way to do it but was hoping to find out if there’s a software program that you can manage them on your computer rather than the unit. Doesn’t sound like it..

    Current is lowrance HDS and the replacement will most likely be a Garmin.

    Saving GPS marks

    Hi all Im selling my boat and want to back up all the GPS marks before it goes so I can copy them across to a new unit in the new boat. Is there a software program that makes this easy? I used to use a program called easygps years ago but it seems to have disappeared. It was great because you could enter marks in via your computer then transfer over to the GPS unit. Heaps quicker than doing them on the unit itself. Or do I just buy an SD card and save them onto that? I’m not the most tech savvy guy, sorry if this is a dumb question. Cheers
  8. Hi Frank I might be interested. The SS ones are ridiculously expensive so I've never bothered with it. Moving to the mid north coast soon though and will probably have more need for them up there for mackerel. If you have a design in mind and a ballpark price I would be keen to see what you come up with. I think 4" would be more than enough for my needs. Cheers Tim
  9. Had one on my outboard for about 4 years now, trouble free boating and a million times better than the old cable steering. You won't be disappointed.
  10. Nice going guys. The boat traffic has been a real turn off for me but the fish are still biting surprisingly well. I fished Woy Woy bay a few days ago and the flathead bite was non existent, which I put down to all the ski boats. Whiting and bream were not deterred though. Smart move to get out there super early, well done.
  11. Oh they are so irritating! They get together in gangs and hoon around Brisbane Waters. They've ruined a very popular local surf break at little box because it's too dangerous for surfers to be out there amongst them jumping over the back of waves without a care in the world. They're loud and stupid and think they're cool but they're just idiots. My brother bought one last year and I still can't look him in the eye...

    Yeah we are certainly aware of the bar, thanks Scratchie. We have plenty of experience with beach launches so I dare say that Minnie will be our preference for any conditions that are less than ideal for the bar.

    Thanks a lot Rick I found some gps marks for the area you shared in another thread, so thanks for that too.

    wooli advice

    Sorry to raise the dead with this very old thread, but it's just too good to leave alone. I'm heading to Wooli in just over 2 weeks for a 4 day fishing trip. There are some really good pointers here that I know were meant for Scratchie, but I really appreciate them too Can I ask what fish I might expect early November at Wooli? I'm assuming it's probably a bit early in the season to be hoping for spaniards and wahoo? How's the beach fish at this time of year?
