Jim, I did change from 160 to 180.  It actually read 185(with engine running)  I am also in fresh water and did not notice any difference in performance.  The engine room felt warmer but no scientific evidence.  Half way through the summer, I took out the 180 and replaced it with the 160.  My thinking was that with the 160, I had more time if the engine should overheat due to weeds in the intake.

Thanks Jon.  always interesting to learn something new.  I think that the new chartplotter(echomap 64cv with ultra vision) also has this capability.
Thanks,
Paul

I do not have a tablet or smart phone.  Still using a flip phone.  We spend most of our time at anchor and are careful about power consumption. We have a 12 volt outlet to charge the phone and run the 12volt vacuum.(when needed).   Jon, how do you get a signal on your tablet or phone if you are out of reach of a signal?  Is the tablet like a paper chart when you do not get a signal?
Thanks,
Paul

I am staying with a chart plotter.  A tablet and phone requires them to be plugged in every evening.  Works if you spend a fair time at dock and also there a many areas in the North Channel and Lake Michigan that does not have wi-fi or cell phone coverage.  I know a lot of boaters that use their smart phones or tablets, just not for me.

Thanks Dave, we did have a great summer.  Don't use the radio much.  Enjoy the peace and quiet.  Did explore a few new anchorages this summer.

Dave, I looked at the link and are you talking about the one with stainless steel pin?
Hope you had a great summer.

Dave, thanks, but I don't see a solid/welded gooseneck.  Only one with a pin thought it.  Not sure if this is what Noah had in mind or something else.
Thanks,
Paul

Thanks for the heads up.  I installed the new out haul yesterday.  My gooseneck has a pin thought it to keep from rotating. 
I would be interested in viewing the "new" fixed/solid welded version.  Could you send a pic or web site Noah?
Thanks,
Paul

I ordered the internal outhaul kit for CD and have received.  I have also taken the boom ends off and ready to install.  The end caps came off without any difficulty.
Hoping to install the outhaul this weekend.
Thanks for the input.

I am looking at the Garmin Echomap 64cv.  This is not a touch screen unit.
Appreciate any input.

Hi Stu, good point.  I would love to have the same one but a new version.  I think that buttons/hybrid would be ok.  Have not really given this a lot of thought.  Will not need it until next summer..
Would like to hear from people who have a garmin and why they love that particular model.  I have a depthsounder and would this mean that I could get rid of the old depth sounder.
Thanks,
Paul

My gps is 15 years old and in the mornings the screen is hard to read and the chips can not be updated.  I would like to replace this gps with a new Garmin.  Ideas and suggestions would be welcomed.  This is the first time in 15 years that I have searched the internet for a gps.  There seems to be a lot of bells and whistles.
Any ideas and suggestions would be welcomed.

Noah, I am going for total replacement.  I am sure that it is original gear on the inside.
