Re: Transducer location on a Skookum 47'

Thanks guys for the reply. Curmudgeon, It was your post last year about Chirp that got me pining after it and researching about it but I just couldn't justify the expense at this time with buying a boat, radar, Nobeltec Catch, gear, etc etc. I am hoping to upgrade in the not so distant future as I r...

Re: Useful video cameras?

For the last two seasons I've used a Foscam FI8905W ip outdoor waterproof security camera mounted way up on our mast. I have had mixed feelings about its usefulness. I think it is most useful when you know someone is crossing your bow or approaching and you want to keep tabs on their progress. As fa...
