I'm selling my Furuno 1715 24 mile all in one radar
unit display, dome, manual, dust cover and cables.
Seen this unit mark sea gulls on the water 200' away
from my boat.
just don't have room for it on my small dashboard
and don't use it as much as I should. Reason?
...it limits my visibility. This radar was
fine until I upgraded to a C127 Raymarine
multi-functional display about 5 seasons ago.
The 12" C127takes up the room on the inside of the
hardtop where the 1715 was once mounted.
Spring 2018 begins today at 12:30 pm.
Possibility of fishing Lk. MI this Thursday
afternoon if the weather plays nice. Been
watching the S end of Lk. MI and that's a crap shoot
too with brisk N winds and temps not much better
than here in Manistee, MI.
Really can't decide with predicted temps in the 30s
and N wind predicted. Next week looks much
better with highs in mid 40s to splash the boat.
1st week in March when this week's
daytime high temp is above freezing, but not by
much. This causes major issues at launch ramps
for morning fishermen when the temp is in the teens.
First boat, or 2 is OK, ...then, the water in the
ramp freeze and your vehicle must climb the icy
incline after launching to park.
Ever-so-slow warm up this week, as we wait for
spring to break. Tomorrow Mr. Winter is facing
retirement by Mr. Spring 2018. Let's hope Mr.
Winter takes the hint ASAP!
Have a great Sunday!
St. Patrick's Day hopefully will transition to
a lucky season for all of us. Luck is defined
as where opportunity meets preparation. So,
I'm prepared and waiting to get lucky!
We all have different things that turn our crank.
Mine lately has been focused on raising the quality
of my videos. This season will have 2 hat
cams, a net cam and a stationary hardtop cam to
cover what the other ones miss.
enjoy the fact of being a movie producer in control
of my own destiny. Know what I want to see and
how to set up better videos that's a work in
progress for 2018.
