Safest way is to hook up a ciggy lighter connection for your boat. The H2O power cord (with Cig lighter connection) has internal circuitry to reduce the 12 volts to match the battery input for the unit (around 3.2V). Do not hardware 12V to the H2O! Smoke!

Correct, I would install a cig lighter outlet. They are inexpensive and easy to install.

If you're looking for a quick cheap way without installing the cigarette light you can pick up the cigarette lighter with alligator clips to hook directly onto your battery. Then just plug your H2O power supply into it. I'll cost you lest than $10 and no worries.

Radioshack, Fleet Farm, Northern Tool & Equipment and other will likely have them.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
