    Yesterday's computer mess

    Only did assembler when taking microprocessor classes. It was only C and C++ when I actually did any coding in the work world. Spent my career in “near real-time” systems too. Sometimes someone had to write some inline code for some drivers.

    Yesterday's computer mess

    These were major companies with etensive IT departments. They don't let 3rd parties just push their new S/W, when they want. They determine that. That leads me to believe this was deployed a while ago, and the fault was pretty much a "time bomb".

    Been Gone

    I was lucky enough to find neighborhood kids that wanted my equipment. I did a search on "kids fishing charities" and the first couple seemed to only want cash donations or equipment from suppliers. This one said you can email them a list of the equipment: Kids Fishing Foundation...

    Spark Plugs Getting Scarce

    Very sad to hear about all these fake sparkplugs. I stocked up on them quite some time ago, but my stock is getting low for the Merc 25. I'll need some for the new engines in the near future, as well. This has been a problem in electonic parts for many years. But, there are good...

    16’ vbottom project

    FWIW: I have and have seen quite a few Starcraft's with the single stringer down the middle, like what the OP has. I highly doubt that it has been modified by a previous owner. I didn't want the OP to think he has a bastardized boat.

    Yesterday's computer mess

    I have not heard a good explaination of how such a critcal and obvious error (blue screen of death) that crashes the OS was not found during testing, prior to mass release. Someone cut some serious corners.

    Anyone ever use a "Tiny Tach"?

    Have used clones on numerous small outboards, sxs, lawn mowers, generator, etc.

    16’ vbottom project

    The OEM used 1/2" plywood and the styrofoam sheets did not support it. There should be a ledge for the mounting on the side and screws went into the rib ends. The edges of the plywood was angled along the outter edge to somewhat match the side taper. With 3/4" and square cut will leave too...

    TimeUSB 100AH 12.8V Pro LiFePO4 Battery Review

    I saw in the manual that they recommend rebalancing every 6 months. Given your use, doesn’t sound like that would be needed. I have no problem doing it on a yearly basis, but mid season would be a bit of a pain.

    Prop advise

    I’ve had both of those brands in I/O props. They work. I think Solas has a wider selection.

    Driving a Tesla

    If there are no pacemaker warning decals, probably low exposure.

    115/90 Mercury

    I’ll second getting the largest that the boat is rated for. The common jet sizes are 150/105, 115/80, and 90/65. The latter would be too small for that size boat.

    Prop advise

    That with your engine model/year to ID the hub/splines and gear case diameter should get you there. I have had good luck with Solas aluminum replacement props.

    Best fishing poles.

    This latest return, was the first that the broken rod did not have to back to St Croix Just had to take picture and submit. Mine is broke 6” down from tip. Eventually I will put a new tip on it, but it will most likely be too short and stiff for any real use.

    TimeUSB 100AH 12.8V Pro LiFePO4 Battery Review

    They do not recommend that. If going with two in series or parallel, they recommend using the same battery model purchased at same time. That is the same with Lead-Acid batteries.

    TimeUSB 100AH 12.8V Pro LiFePO4 Battery Review

    I run a 45lb MG Wireless on the bow of the DMI1648. Plenty of power, but might upgrade to a GPS model, and would get a minor bump in thrust to 55lb. With our 70lb on the 17’ G3 never ran them to 50% and they were only 80 Ah. That is all day fishing in a river with heavy anchor lock use...

    Looks like you can get a free 10A charger with it too.

    Driving a Tesla

    I saw a recent news blurb that CA has excess solar on many days, and requiring batteries for new installations to get the incentives.
