Digital controls are changing the way outboards are rigged and operated. Technology keeps getting better and better to make things simpler and simpler. Now with "Fly By Wire" we can rig our boats using less wire with more capabilities than ever before. Frank’s Tip of the Week Performance: When the need for low-speed maneuvering arises, like in docking or loading the boat on the trailer, fly-by-wire gives the captain more control – and who doesn’t need that in a tricky wind or current? Mercury's docking mode gives a choice of 50-percent power reduction while maintaining full throw of the throttles. That gives you a lot of confidence at the dock! Trolling mode is another practical function available with digital controls. With this option selected, the engines can be fine-tuned in small rpm increments to set and maintain the optimum trolling speed. We all know that a small change in trolling speed can mean the difference between an average fishing day and an epic one! Stay tuned for next weeks tip on fly-by-wire pricing.

bullelkklr: How did the bow mounting of the exhaust port for the Espar heater work out for you? I am working on a similar installation of a D2 heater and am trying to decide whether to take the exhaust out the hull starboard side or put it where you did.

bullelkklr: Do you have any problems with melting coolers or being too hot to the touch on the gunnel from the exhaust? Is there any problems with exhaust fumes on the back deck from swirling exhaust when on anchor?
