Re: Max Horsepower for '01 26 x

Here’s some nice Winter reading from 5 years ago . While it tells my story with a ‘97 :macx: & I’m staying with the 115 ‘cause it’s on the transom. However, having gone bigger, the Etec 90 was enough & the oil tank is internal. The placement & filling of the external oil tank on the 115 can be an i...

Re: Storing Kayak in MacX

I gave up on kayaks and instead use standup paddle boards. Inflatable ones are the most Mac friendly but have kept hard ones also through the years.

Re: Sportdrive X-5 ... Ok or not for a Mac?

The new seatalk nema 2000 is Much faster, as are the new autopilot heads logarithmically, with the evolution gyro capability. Basically, it does stuff you/we can’t imagine sans rudder interface even. Go to their website & talk to their geeks online & or phone. You won’t be sorry. If you’re absolutel...

Re: Sportdrive X-5 ... Ok or not for a Mac?

I started 13 years ago with a Raymarine SportPilot & loved how much room it Didn’t take up & the auto function it provided. But, make sure you have a rudder reference in your network. Bigger But: Raymarine + new Seatalk + Evolution network has come a Really Long Way :| So, unless it was ‘free for me...

Greetings, After 10 years of sailing with a Honda 30, the Admiral has finally given me the green light for a new motor.

Re: Prop ding

Ya gotta watch dat Keys skinny water 8) The aluminum Hydrus line is what you need for Evinrude, big eared / low pitch. You might even find an old OMC just get your spline # right :wink: & you gotta run your E-tec at high rpms to burn off the carbon buildup. Say a 10 min minimum/ month. Otherwise, it...
