90 HP Etec jet measured "at the prop"

who knows with etec it could be a 125/90 or it could be a 90/65 and they don't tell you it's actually only 65 hp. I'd say call their customer service line but I'm not sure anyone would answer since brp announced the other day that they ain't building no more outboards. they are out of the outboard ...

Old gas---what to do?

I haven’t run my boat for 12 months. There was about 8 gallons of gas in it from last year. Today, it started right up and I ran around all day. Ran just like I put fresh gas in it this morning.

These Days

I grew up with Steve Jobs, Johnny Cash and Bob Hope. Now, there are no Jobs, no Cash and no Hope. I pray Kevin Bacon stays healthy.

Why is there an extra fuse between the battery and fuse box, and no fuse or circuit breaker in the trolling motor circuit?

Trouble shoot livewell aerator pump

The impeller might also be broken. You’d have to pull the pump and have a look.

Downrigger Install

Make sure you back up the nuts on the cleats with big, heavy duty washers or metal plates. Down riggers put a lot of stress on whatever they are bolted to.

Yes, that’s how it works. If it’s on spot lock, it only comes on to move you back to the spot. If you just want it to make corrections to your direction while trolling with the gas motor, use the hand held remote to just bump you.
