I have both my 858 and 798 in a single case I got from Cabelas. it was in the gun case aisle, black plastic with foam inside. perfect fit and trimmed none of the foam. i store them in there for trailering and storage when not on lake. too much money to have banging around when trailering

That is exactly what I was hoping to get. Could you let me know the brand, dimensions, price, or any info that might help me figure out which one it is. I am hoping to order online. Thanks for the help!

Many years ago I bought an inexpensive plastic pistol case with egg foam from Gander Mtn. It has been large enough to accommodate my electronics as I have upgraded from model to model and provided all the protection required.

I have a 798si and it is small enough to fit in a padded lunch style insulated bag. The bag fits inside my side storage area. Cheap protection, but it works for me without taking up to much room.

Pelican makes killer cases, but they are spendy. I use a small one to keep my camera in.

For my graph (1198) and ipilot remote I use a Seahorse case (SE710). It also has enough room for a few other little things like the charger and extra mapcards. They aren't quite as heavy duty as a Pelican, but they are not far behind wink (also waterproof, de-comp valve etc)

You won't be disapointed with either.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
