Humming Bird Locators
1. It takes a fair amount of time to lock on the first time, so I turn it on while unloading. After that it locks fast.
2. If I'm just making short hops fishing the starter/accessory battery will get low enough cranking that the GPS will flash momentarily, then not lock at all till you power down/restart. If I'm tubing or making long runs, it's OK to leave it on as I start engine.
All in all, it's not a bad graph, and adequate for my needs.
Think the sweat in my eyes and mosquitoes feasting on me soured me on this one as much as the task.
I added trailer guides and a Twist Step to the new boat so far this year. Last year I changed the trailer bunks, changed out the trolling motor board before storing the old one. Always changed my own gear lube, checked prop for line, and winterized on my own. (so I'll do some of this stuff as well still)
Can't remember the last time I changed oil in my truck, or replaced my brake pads. Neither are terribly difficult, guess I would just rather pay somebody to do it.
The boat is different for me I guess. The only reason I have a truck is to get me to work, and pull my boat around - no real love affair. My boat on the other hand, lover her to death, and enjoy tinkering with things...
