We also have two tournament lakes, but they're a little tricky to get on.

Dickey is just north of Whitefish along hi way. Small but very pretty in State Forest. Smalll 24 state campground. Used to set up my course there and enjoy.

Dickey sounds awesome. I have a couple of buddies up Whitefish way. I meant to visit them this summer, but ran out of time and weather! Thanks for the heads up!

They have them at Fry's. 24.99 for a 6x12in 69.99 for a 14x14. I just left Fry's did not see the one I had. Maybe online at frys.com.
It works really well, had starting issues last year and this year with the addition of the solar panel no starting issues.
Make sure you do not have it plugged in while the engine is running. The alternator will ruin it, unless you run a diode, on a switch or use a relay like I did and have it switch on when you turn ignition off.

Let me know if this helps.

Sunforce 50022 5 Watt Solar Battery Trickle Charger. $69.99
FRYS.com #: 4980021*

ICP SE-170 Solar Trickle Charger*
FRYS.com #: 5960294 *$31.99

Sunforce 50013 1W Power Sports Charger *$24.99
FRYS.com #: 5883303

Fry's does not have the one I have anymore. Mine is between the top one here and the middle one. The differences with the top on and middle are size of the solar panel and rate of trickle charge.
The bottom one is more of a maintainer if your battery is at 12volts it will stay there. More of a winter storage type of solar panel so you can start after a period stored.

The middle one is a nice size, good price and has suction cups included.
So I suggest:
ICP SE-170 Solar Trickle Charger*
FRYS.com #: 5960294 *$31.99

I am not a representative or stock holder of Fry's Corporation. Just a happy customer that love electronic crap. Try Amazon or EBay too.

Here's a few shots of mine.

'85, grey/blue. All-original, unknown hours, since when bought, the Hobbs meter had been replaced by an INOP depth finder. Previous owner added the transom tow-point, but it's off-kilter, so I guess it wasn't well-braced. Need to fix it. Other than that, perfect.

Still well-taken care of, regardless and performs flawlessly.

Thanks!

Yeah, the prior owner named her that, after the Jimmy Buffet kid's book. We kept it because it's bad luck to change a boat's name. Plus, it's not bad.
