Triducer at stern with ev-100 raymarine display

Hello I can show you my new mod. I installed the airmar P39 Triducer at the stern. The data goes with nmea2000 to the raymarine p70 display, that was already installed at the helm becouse of the raymarine autopilot ev-100. So it works perfect for temperature and depth. The speed is to slow becouse o...

Re: New winch for 2007 Al trailer

I find the stock trailer winch is to small.
So I graded up with 1050kg 2gear winch, cheap stile.

Whats the problem with drilling a new whole?

Re: Rudders up when motoring

I don't see the differens in motoring in 6kn and sailing in 6kn. I don't think motoring is heavier for the rudders.

Re: Rudders up when motoring

I'm shure you can use your rudders down at speed up the mac will go to planning. And this is till 6kn. You also sail at these speeds.

Above that that mac goes towards planning. And then the rudders must go up. But with 30HP this will not happen I guess.

What is your speed you want to motor?

Re: Motor well scupper.

What is exactely your problem/concern with the factory stile?

As long as you don't come 3 inch higher obove water line it does not look as an improvement.

What do you want to be better after the mod?
