The Mercury Active Trim is a GPS, speed based, automatic engine trim system. This responds to the weather around you responding to the weather conditions around you and fuel economy. Now the engine will set the trim for you so you no longer have to. I know many guys who don’t even use their trim because they don’t want to deal with it. The trim is super important for leveling the boat off and saving on fuel - that is why this invention is so awesome.
Whether you’re out tournament fishing/charter fishing/ or just out boating, you have to have a reliable engine. Mercury Marine is the most innovative in reliability and corrosion resistance. They come with a 3 year factory warranty in corrosion resistance. They have 2x as much stainless steel as any other competitors.
There are some key features that I wanted on my boat:

This boat is built with 3 live wells, we have a back transom well that is very easy to open the latch to grab a few baits where you don’t have to lean over to get them out. The other well is a floor well. The reason we like this is because when we throw the net we can easily transfer the bait into the floor well. Lastly we have the leaning-post-well which we use mostly as a drink cooler but it can be filled easily.
I updated with all the new Simrad NSS Ev 3. I couldn’t be happier with all of the Simrad functions and abilities it has to put us on the fish. This technology is by far the best Simrad product to date…
