    Great to hear about those Etecs. I've used smaller ones and loved them but folks up here seem to knock the bigger ones. Sure do love the low end on those motors.

    Here's to another successful 6 years! Look me up if you ever get to PWS.

    hi ric..yes, for sure!....we will prob head up to alaska in a year or two with the j boat!..want to hit the yukon!!
    ....as far as etecs, i have had an issue with their contollers which i swapped out myself in the marina(plug in.and go)
    .....but, rule #1 for me --never buy a motor where you dont have a good mechanic--regardless of the brand ..but for now-- all good!

    Larry,
    How did your crabbing adventure turn out a few months ago?
    Will you stretch out the downrigger cables while on the lake?
