  1. anyone had experience with either Ramsey or Campmor service department? good or bad thx
  2. Agreed. Has saved me a couple of times, and a buddy once. post, chain assembly, idler cable and small wrench. Would be nice to carry the entire drive, then no repair kit required.
  3. I'll see if I can get you a couple of shirts anyway.
  4. Well done guys, and great news. I was given some very bad info by the technician at HumminBird this am, when he gave me the dimensions of the transducers.
  5. Surf Day 2019.... Great vendors and speakers. Still only $10 entry. Kids under 12 are free. February 16th, 2019 Brookdale Community College 765 Newman Springs Rd Lincroft, New Jersey
  6. I was told by Austin Kayak that this one won't work with the new Mega Transducer is considerably larger than earlier SI transducers. I've emailed Berley to see what they think, no answer yet.
  7. Yes, I think the transducer which comes with the unit (XNT 9 HW MSI 150T) is the only one that we can use. Its freaking huge.....
  8. The transducer for the Helix 7 Mega is 8 1/4" long x 2 1/4" wide x 7/8 inch high. Earlier Humminbird Transducers were 5.9" long (XHS 9 HDSI 180T HDSI)
  9. Hopefully, you are good with the Outback 2019. Still, might be worth checking that the Mega transducer retracts fully. The transducer for the Helix 7 Mega is a different part number than the SI transducer for some of the earlier models. Helix 7 Mega SI uses XNT 9 HW MSI 150T The BerleyPro Humminbird transducer mount is for these two transducers XNT 9 SI 180 T XHS 9 HDSI 180 T Not exactly sure which FF use these
  10. 410950-1 Helix 7 CHIRP MEGA SI GPS G3 Getting ready to order this cool new FF for my Pro Angler 12. Plan was to install in the Lowrance ready port under the boat, and use the BerleyPro Humminbird Transducer mount, so the FF could sit below the boat. However, Austin Kayak says the standard transducer for this model won't work with the BerleyPro mount. and BerleyPro hasn't answered my email report for clarification. Has anyone heard anything about how you're supposed to mount this FF Thx!!
  11. The one near Casa Comida is good if you want to fish way in the back, which is fun early spring (its 4 blocks from my house) And its free.
  12. Rumson municipal launch is a very nice place to launch. Had a small boat a few years ago, and that was where I launched to fish the rivers (Navasink and Shrewsbury and Raritan (eastern side) There is a launch in Leonardo, and one in Keyport, pay per launch. With that, you should be covered.
  13. For Hobie owners, its a good idea to inspect your cables, and replace idler cables and chain assemblies that are showing signs of rust.
  14. Ordered mine with morning Helix 7 with Mega SI, Navionics++ So next question is whether we need to exchange the standard for the HD transducer....
