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
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.
