I left my minn Kota I pilot turn on will this be harmfull

Hi. I believe you are referring to a Minn Kota with i-Pilot GPS? If you forget to turn the power button off and the motor was not running (meaning the prop was not turning), your motor should be fine. Ultimately, if left on for long enough, it will drain the batteries and eventually turn off. This is not harmful for the motor. For safety reasons (yourself and others), it's always best to disconnect the motor from the power source when not in use.

I just bought a new boat and need to buy a boat

Never buy a trailer with the same capacity as the weight of your boat! This can be very dangerous! Instead, make sure the trailer's capacity is at least twice that of the weight of the boat, all your gear, and the boat's motor.

Which fuel line goes where on a stx 900 jet ski

The specific configuration can vary depending on the model year and design changes. Additionally, providing incorrect information about fuel line connections could be dangerous. For accurate information on the fuel line connections for your specific jet ski model, I recommend consulting the owner's manual that came with your watercraft. The owner's manual typically contains detailed instructions and diagrams on how to properly connect and route the fuel lines. If you don't have the owner's manual or if you're unsure about the correct fuel line connections, it's essential to reach out to the manufacturer, a certified Sea-Doo dealer, or a qualified technician who can provide accurate guidance based on your specific jet ski model and its year of manufacture. Safety is a top priority when working with fuel systems, so it's crucial to ensure that the connections are correct to prevent accidents and damage to the watercraft.

I need to reset Simrad AI50 ais to a new MMSI.. Thank you

This is the official line Can I change the MMSI number entered into a VHF radio or AIS unit? Once entered and confirmed, the MMSI number can only be changed by a certified technical dealer. If you need your number reset or changed, it is recommended that you contact the organization or agency which originally registered your MMSI. For more information about MMSI numbers, go to the United States Coast Guard website at this link. And https://www.justanswer.com/boat/au99m-received-emailed-info-from-simrad-reset.html This doesn't sound hopeful! https://mt.panbo.com/2015/07/simrad-ai50-mmsi-reset.html Full story https://www.google.com/search?q=reset+Simrad+AI50+ais+to+a+new+MMSI ..

The Raymarine ST8002 Smartpilot the unit powers up but does not work when the auto mode is selected. The hydraulic motor does not engage when a course is set. What could be the source of the fault?

According to a post on the Raymarine forum, this error message could indicate an issue with either the steering, the drive unit, the rudder reference unit (if fitted), or the course computer . The post suggests a few tests that you can do yourself to figure out which item is causing the issue. I suggest that you try the following steps: Check the connections between the ST8002 SmartPilot and the other components of your autopilot system. Check the calibration of the ST8002 SmartPilot and the other components of your autopilot system. Check the hydraulic fluid level and the hydraulic pump pressure. Check the hydraulic pump motor and the hydraulic pump solenoid valve. If none of these steps work, I recommend that you contact Raymarine customer support for further assistance.

2017 Tracker 17.5 ft. boat. How can I remove batteries from it please.

Question edited for clarity. Question moved to Boating. Hello Anonymous Harriet :>D You will have two or possibly 3 batteries. Usually a large car type starting battery for starting the engine. Then two Deep Cycle Gel Batteries, one for the marine electronics, fish finder etc, and another that powers the front bow mounted Trolling motor. You will find them in the deck lockers. Open them, release any tie downs, undo the cables and lift them out for Winter storage. I keep mine in my garage and I put them on a battery minder for 24 hours once a month. I have the Battery Tender Junior, and I put them on a 6 amp car charger before the season starts. https://www.google.com/search?q=Battery+Tender https://www.google.com/search?q=2017+tracker+175+remove+battery The information you gave is is merely the year of manufacture, the maker and the length. They all have model numbers. That would be the key to searching for a manual online. https://www.jdpower.com/boats/2017/tracker-marine/pro-guide-v-175-wt__/32067137/specs and https://www.bbcboards.net/showthread.php?t=969900 ..
