  1. I'm on my third Trophy. Started with an 18ftr then 20 and now have a 2005 2352HT. I have never had any problems with any of the Trophy boats. It does seem that 2005 and after have much improved. They are definitely worth the price. If you can find one that has been well maintained you won't be disappointed. Jim
  2. Shure hold Buff Magic. They have a great kit with polisher. I use it first thing in the spring then wax. Lats all year. JB
  3. I have a problem with my less than year old HB 958c DI and was wondering if anyone else had the same problem. The last two times out after about 30 to 45 minutes the GPS chart would keep rotating then it would stop and say No GPS FIX FOUND. I did a restore defaults with no help. After the first time I did a software updated and it seemed ok till I went out and again after 30 to 40 minutes the chart went goofy then no gps fix found. Also noticed that the data readings on the left kept flashing. Pulled the boat Saturday and today while in my back yard I turned it on with only the GPS reciever attached. Again after 30 minutes the chart kept rotating, ( boat sitting still attached to truck ) and GPS showed speed from 2mph to 11mph. Called HB Tech support and they walked me through several tests. They are sending me a new GPS receiver to try. I'm thinking it is the HB unit itself as it seems when it cools down it works then gets alittle warm and stops working. HB tech was great to work with. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem and have you found a fix ? Thanks Jim
  4. I have four Big - Jon Captain Pack riggers and want to go to 12lb weights. Are these riggers rated to handle these ? Anyone using twelve pound weighys on these riggers ? Thanks Jim
  5. anyone running braid for their rigger cables ? if so what brand and strength ? I did a search but was not much help. Thanks Jim
  6. Do a search for Ranger fish nets. I have two of them and like them. Recently contacted them to replace a hoop which got broken and was very pleased with their quick response. They do not deal direct but their site can give you all their products and where to get them. Jim
  7. Just purchased and installed a Humminbird 958c DI. Bought it from Universalmaina.com. Nice site and very accommodating. $200 less than other sites I looked at. If it works as good as in the Simulator mode that will be awesome. Anyone using the 985 model and any comments. Switched from and older model Raymarine. Looked for the down imaging for walley fishing mostly. Boat will be ready this week and hoping to be on Lake Champlain next week. Jim
  8. Where is the video ????????????. I need a late winter FIX !!!!!!!!!!
  9. Beagles are awesome. My wife and I are on our third Beagle. He's what they call a pocket beagle and is only 12 lbs. We don't hunt them but they make great pets for the kids. The breeder we got ours from has a great line of hunting beagles with many champions. Do a search for Hocomock Swamp Beagles. I think that's their web site. Only problem they are in Massachusetts. You could alos do a search for Beagle rescue sites
