Adjust Your Settings To Run The Florida Marine Tracks Chip In Lowrance HDS

Adjust Your Settings To Run The Florida Marine Tracks Chip In Lowrance HDS

The Florida Marine Tracks chip can be loaded into your Lowrance or Simrad unit and will display the best and most impressive aerial photography that I have ever seen. When you are running your boat in the Florida Keys, the boat is displayed as a triangle as normal, but you can see individual trees, PVC stakes, Markers, roads, marinas and every detail of the area that you are running through. You can see yourself moving through the area almost as if you are seeing it real time. I would buy the chip just for these photos. However, to make things even more interesting, they have the safe running paths throughout the Florida Keys backcountry and throughout the entire State of Florida!

Yellowfin 24 Bay Wiring Set Up

I’ve owned a lot of boats and been on even more. Yellowfin is unquestionably the finest rigged boat I have ever seen. The 16 foot skiff is rigged to the same standards as their 42. The rigging is easy to get to, organized and meticulously finished for problem free boating. So many boats are rigged with a tangled mess of wires that is a serious nightmare when trying to diagnose an electrical issue.

I rigged my 24 Yellowfin with three batteries in the console. I have a dedicated start battery and 2 house batteries. There are 3 more Group 31 trolling motor batteries in the front hatch and an onboard charger that will recharge and top off each of these overnight.

I hope that helps!  Send us a picture of the big fish you catch!
