It’s so cool seeing fresh water that’s that big! I hope to get to Lake Erie next summer though.

It’s so cool seeing fresh water that’s that big! I hope to get to Lake Erie next summer though.

It was an exceptionally calm water day. I have been boating on Lake Erie (normally in our old 24' dual helm cruiser) for many years. It can get rough surprisingly fast where 24' is the smallest boat I would want to be in. We used to keep our boat docked at the Grand River marina. It was nice to hop on and go for a day of walleye fishing. As we got older, the boat got a little too big for my wife to handle so we sold it. But I made many trips between the lighthouse and the break wall on my way out to the lake. I would fish anywhere from 4 to 25 miles out. GPS enabled autopilot helped get me home.

To show how calm it was, attached are pictures of the break wall itself and a view looking back from the break wall at the Coast Guard station at the mouth of the Grand River. As for the calm day, by comparison I can't tell you how many times I have seen enormous waves crashing over the top of the break wall when fishing for steelhead from the break wall leading to the light house (sometimes the waves crashed over it too and it's much higher up) or the pier just opposite the Coast guard station. We drive down there sometimes during stormy weather just to watch the 10' or more waves crashing into the break wall. Nature is truly beautiful and amazing.

So true, it can get rough very quick. I had a tough, scary situation 2 yrs ago with perfect conditions trying to make it back to the Edgewater Park ramp from the Cuyahoga River. 2 mph wind blowing the right direction from shore to Canada when I launched. 15 mph with higher gusts and white caps when I returned 2 hrs later. Waves coming in the cockpit faster than the bilge could pump it out. I haven't tried going back except maybe once.

Same here, on the Delaware River. Went out with a slight breeze, on the way back, wind kicked up to 30mph gusts, with water soaking me in late Fall conditions. I was scared. It took three hours at just above idle speed to get back.
Usually going on plane keeps the water off me, but the swells were 2-3 feet at times, and I would have sunk.

Tom made a video of installing them but I can't locate it. Think he used a soldering tip to heat an inset with threads and melted the Mokai's plastic, looked easier than drilling holes. I've broken 4 transom lights since getting the Mokai so will probably opt for a flush mount set of lights similar to the navigation lights. I use the lights more for others to see me when I stay out to view sunsets or, get back from fishing past sunset.

Here's the link to what I use; now I just slide the insert over a pair of needle nose pliers and briefly heat with a torch to insert.

Looks fairly easy  with just pliers and torch needed for tools. Even I have those in the toolbox.

Wow, kind of intimidating, but Fun!

Guess that means you won't be fishing the bottom of that one for Catfish!  :))

Only if you upgrade my anchor system. I did see an occasional fish on my screen, only 200 ft down.
We don't kayaking in Alaska and they told us the depth was around 1200 ft.
