2018 boat upgrades seem to be
done for now. Tested the Fish Hawk probe to

Installing the Raymarine's new V 19.03 Light House
operating system in my C127 MFD came off without a
hitch. Rewriting any OS can be scary.
Ok, now it's time to bear down on fishing.
Checked Manistee's harbor cams yesterday. Seen

with precision targeting in depth and trolling
speed. Eliminating reliance on luck to fill
your box with every advantage. One of the best
advantages comes with awareness of all the clues you
have to work with. Sonar/fish finders require
That's why this season I'm working to update my 2012
Raymarine C127 12" multi function display with the
latest updates. My 12" C127 is running version
3.15 and does not support the Raymarine newest apps
