Go to settings and either change the depth using the icon DownScreen/Down Imaging and turn off. Or go to com and follow Doctor Sonar on Facebook and read the tutorial articles on understanding sonar. Or google doctorsonar.com

Yes you reprogrammed your unit to bottom depth.
Go to settings and use the arrow buttons until you get to the top of the unit. The menu will have several different settings you need to change the sonar settings. After you play around with all the different settings you will see what I'm talking about.

Join the Facebook group 'Everything Boston Whaler'. It is the best resource, Jeff Rohlfing is the owner and personally vets every member. Tell him I sent you. He knows every model like an encyclopedia. Also 'Continuous Wave'.

I am pretty sure the only Jet Boat was called the 'Rage' and produced from 1996. The EBW group has a section called Files and a PDF lists models and years.

Yamaha would be a possible source.

Do you have a side imaging transducer? If so, mounting to the inside of a fiberglass hull will not work. The transducer mounting needs to be as flat (pointed downward) as much as possible and use the slow curing epoxy that would come with the unit. If you cannot find the problem, contact the manufacturer for support.

Take out the spark plug. Hold a drinking straw up to the spray nozzle and shoot the fog into the spark plug hole.

Most likely, (1) it's an old worn out battery, low charge, poor or corroded cable connections. Inspect and clean them. You may want to jumper battery with your car battery. If problem persists, (2) check starter solenoid connections and output connections. (3) As a last culprit, it could be a bad starter. And make sure your engine is not frozen. (Take spark plugs out and turn the flywheel by hand).

Something like this ?

Epoxy Floor Coating

Depends on the HP of the motor. The long shaft will only ad a few lbs. See this link for motor specs on weights.

You need to start at the simple stuff. Check the spark plugs and see if they are wet with gas. If not, could be a fuel pump issue. See if the plugs are fouled, change them and check for spark. If you have both, it should at least sputter. Check for water in the fuel.

Seems like the sonar isn't connected. Check the wiring to the transducer to make sure it is all connected.

That's great you have a 70 lb trolling motor. Do you have a question?

Boating | Answered on Sep 21, 2019


It is generally difficult to find replacement parts. You might try e-bay or Amazon, but by time you buy the parts and make the repairs, you could have bought a new trolling motor.

That's most likely a freeze plug that needs to be replaced by a new one.
