Silly marina sign

So I made a trip to the boat today at our marina. Pulling up to the walkway leading down to the dock is a new sign (courtesy of the marina's owner): Stupid sign - reduced.jpg So I guess I can take a ' quiet ' (vs 'aLOUD') gas can down to the boat??? And this wasn't just at my dock, it's at the walkw...

Re: Engine stalls after getting to temp

Steven, If you installed a clear PLASTIC inline fuel filter, you could have a major problem. I don't believe those are approved for marine use and if you should have a fire, the use of that type of filter could negate any insurance claim. One of the folks here on the site has done a long time interv...

Re: Engine Warms up and wont stay running

Not being a "gearhead" but more of a shade tree mechanic, I wanted to ask... (and if the fact that Todd said POs replaced the distributor may make this a silly question.....) ... I had a somewhat similar instance occur on first the port engine and then a couple of years later on the startb...

Rivnut tool

Years ago, FastJeff detailed how he had replaced the stantion bases on his boat. He used a method for setting the rivnuts into the hull which worked. I recently found that (gag, choke...) Harbor Freight sells a rivnut setting tool with rivnuts for 22.99. ( https://www.harborfreight.com/45-piece-thre...

Re: Solar panels & house bank

We purchased the Renogy unit that comes with a controller so we're covered, but some may not know that. Harbor Freight offers a 100w unit with controller, but it weighs twice as much as the Renogy unit and you only get 1/2 the watts.

Re: Solar panels & house bank

John, Not sure this would be applicable to your 39 sedan, but on our 32 sedan we have 4 batteries that sit on a ledge in the engine room at the forward end. I believe this was the standard config. 32's appeared to come with 3 batteries (1 starter for each engine and a "house battery" that ...

Re: LM 318 140 thermosts

NAPA I get mine from there. Before replacing, I make sure they really are bad... - put in pot on stove - heat water to 130 deg (use a Harbor Freight infrared tester) - raise water temp to 140 deg (or in the neighborhood) and watch that the copper pellet / spring system reacts (would equate to openin...

Re: Hard Starting

If it turns out to be the fuel pump, you can purchase them at Go2Marine.com. I had to replace mine (starboard engine) last year. Cost was 94.32 .
