Default Rigging now,....

Yes sir,

I am rigging my boat as we speak, and I am using the vessel view with the northstar 550. When I get it all together I will let you know. Eddie young is doing an excellent job figuring out what plugs in where and so on. We are sort of learning as we go and have learned that Merc is not doing much as far as training their dealers. I just had to purchase 6 more sensors/plugs yesterday.

So hopefully I will have some good news in a week or so.

Showed how in-accurrate the high doller/calibrated Livorsi guages(tachs) are OFF!!
Will be the most help at dialing-in boat with correct props now.

Tell Eddie if he needs any assistance to call me on the cell.
