The Demands of DOCTOR SONAR
So you think your fishing boat needs a lot of juice, huh? Meet DOCTOR SONAR, also known as Bruce Samson, M.D. Bruce's Crestliner 202TS runs a multitude of electrical accessories that all help him hunt down the biggest Walleyes around.
Three of Bruce's five OPTIMA BLUETOP batteries operate his Minn Kota Vantage or Terrova trolling motors and the other two BLUETOPs are used for starting his 250-horsepower Mercury Verado engine and powering numerous other accessories. These would include two inverters for his laptops, four color Lowrance HDS units, a VHF radio, a TR-1 autopilot with an electric pump, two bilge pumps, three live well pumps, an ethernet expansion port, a satellite weather station and a StructureScan. Now do you wonder why they call him "DOCTOR SONAR?"
