Thanks for the map and article.
A cynical person would think the fix was in even back then for the Tunnels. Or maybe that's being a realist.

Re: Trailer bunks repair needed

Just wondering - should you use stainless steel staples?? If you use 3M spray glue that's waterproof, the staples only need to hold until the glue sets. I used Arrow T50 staples, and they worked just fine. I used pressure treated lumber both times, for two different boats, and they are still going ...

Re: castic lagoon

The lagoon is a big bowl, with flats at the north and north west. Fish the edges of the deeper water, and the steeper side like at swimmer's beach on the west side. Look at the Navionics Webbapp's sonar map of the lagoon to get a better idea of how it lays out. https://webapp.navionics.com/?lang=en#...

Re: Fish finder to battery

The correct way is to add another battery for 'house' or 'electronics' loads. It is possible to pull clean power from either the cranking bat or the TM bat bank by utilizing a DC-DC Converter. The downside is killing either of those banks and being without power to get to the weigh-in on time. All ...
