  1. Salmonquest....ive done my homework...from what ive learned stay away from the fish hawk for several reasons the biggest is that with the blowback that ALL rigger cables have unless your using a 50lbs in 50ft of water, the more blowback the less signal you will get...i do not know anything about the cannon your best bet is the sub-troll or depth raider. they use the same system of getting the electrical signal thru the coated cable (included) the subtroll/depthraider are almost exctly the same unit the depth raider has a digtial display and the subtroll anaolg display....

  11. i got these this year from a fellow fisherman who got them a long time ago he told me that he got them new in the 80's (making them 20+ yrs old) they were covered in dust. he also said when he bought the two of them he wished he got four and went out and got for new big jons' instead. looking at them they were used but he said that they were almost like new just siting on his basement shelf. they work well the on/off switches, counters, clutches, pulley heads as well as the motors. the did not have any trouble pulling up the 10lb ball i was using. myself have 4 used big jons' so they are just sitting........ YES WILLING TO SHIP TO CANADA.... HOWEVER I NEED TO PACKAGE THEM AND TAKE THEM TO TO POST OFFICE FOR WEIGHT AND COST OF SHIPPING

  13. hi ive got an islander 191V they are starting to shrink!! not so bad as it is a cause for concern, however i am sure you could take some material and affix it to the wood. at this time ive not given much thought to the problem. what to use and how to attach it?? maybe try calling the company directly and talking to a live person!! ive been lucky @ starcraft so far and they we very heplful......maybe you could order the same crap they put on the boat?? but i am sure with some thought you could come up with something much better!!!
