Re: New boat, What u guys think??

Re: Sounder clarity

Yes but wouldn't climbing out and down the winch post be difficult and even dangerous on some boats?


Currently sourcing an ex-scaffold ladder with the hooks at the top for this purpose :P

Re: markfish

We picked up a new lowrance elite 9ti at the boat show, pretty keen to check this feature out. Apparently you can scroll back thru the sounder and mark any fish you previously went over. Not sure how useful it will be actually in use.

Ive never used an electric so couldnt comment on holding power in WPB. I cant see why it wouldnt work in the shallows when whiting fishing, but the tide really does roar once u get a bit deeper. Cant wait to read your first report and fish to christen it! Its going to be a long 3 months I bet haha
