Nice ride!
Many fun time to come...

You're going to love that e-tec. I bet you will be getting 4-6 mpg on that boat...

Ha, was looking at the boat and saw the pic at the end and thought, wait I know that guy. Guess you need to take me fishing. Good choice in boats. Looks like you did better than my 67.

Eric, if you're etec is nema 2000 get something that supports that. I have a simrad nss7/8. Super easy to use and you can add ap, sonic hub , radar, more screens... Lowrance is pretty much the same thing in a different package. The cheapie transom transducer dual freq (83, 200 I think) is surprisingly good, has h2o temp too

Cksea - from what I have read the 90 hp is not nema 2000 compliant until 2008. The 115 and up are compliant from 2006. It would be nice!

Lional - anytime.

Nice rig. Looks clean. Craigslist list has from time to time used Furuno 582s that can be had for cheap. Just make sure screen is good and spend your $$ on the best transducer you can afford. Airmar P66 are entry level transducers that are available new around $75 +/-.

IMHO for the price of a good 582 you can get a new unit that is actually much better. I had one for years and they were great. I recently fished on a boat that still had one and it was like a Pong Console. So dated. The Dragonfly on my kayak is 1000x better.
