Tips & Tricks / Keelguard
« Last post by davidsea on Today at 08:55:37 PM »
   Keelguard - color is ALMOND, on a 1996 SR .  Not a perfect match, but really close and looks good.  Thanks for previous forum advice. This would have been near impossible to get straight without some help, and I sealed the edges with 5200, as suggested. :arms:

I finally got around to installing this. Easy, straightforward installation. Works great. I checked it against the app on my phone and both showed identical readings. I like the looks and performance so well I have ordered a matching tachometer. I will post pictures after I install the tach.

Statement of fact: I need a radar.  And I'm intrigued by The new Raymarine Doppler radar because it depicts approaching hazards in red and everything else in green.  But my current MFDs would need to be upgraded to the new Axiom units in order to run the radar.  So, not a casual purchase.  Does anyone out there have any first-hand experience with the Axioms?  How about the side/down vision feature?  How easy are they to configure/use?

We now live in an era where it's possible to spend $9,000 on an MFD (16" Axiom XL).  Crazy.

Fishing Reports & Tips / Re: Swiftsure Halibut and Lings
« Last post by Ttcustomz on Today at 11:25:50 AM »
I think I’ve finally figured out halibut fishing somewhat to put fish in the boat. I’ve spent tons of money on reels and rods too to figure what’s good and works. One word here too Tanacom. I mainly fish the SWC and the Prairie and it’s not fun reeling in 500 plus feet. Even out at swiftsure with all the bait checks it’s a luxury sure you can reel but why not just sit back and reel it the last 30ft. And thanks to the members here for there input and help every year my success has gotten better. Buddy boat is a must in big water. And a bucket full of copper jigs .. Fish On!!!  :gone_fishing: :gone_fishing:

Squid - I think the original integrated fuel tanks on the earlier 17s were 23 gallons. My 17 SC is a '91 and it has a 23 gallon tank. Arima managed to upgrade the tank size sometime after that ('91) to I believe a 27 or 28 gallon tank. Some of the earlier models were able to upgrade to the larger tanks and some like mine, were not.
