Re: Over-wintering boat - in water???

Jeff, Agreed. We live 40 minutes away from the new marina (50 mins to the current one), so it's been easy (?) to go to the boat. The placement of the Kasco unit (ordered last night with the optional timer/thermometer) is somewhat in question: - Option 1: With only 1 finger in position, I can positio...

Over-wintering boat - in water???

Folks, We normally pull our boat at the end of each season (which allows me to work on her exterior at my leisure (of which there never seems to be much of ... ;) ). This year there have been a number of costs associated with moving to a new marina (current marina has very high angle ramps down to d...

Re: Boat in the wet, but shafts won't drip

Just in case you weren't aware (and if you are, my apologies), the mating flange surfaces between the shaft and the engine should not be off by more that .003 of an inch. Ie. if you can get a .003" feeler gauge to slide between the flanges easily, there's a misalignment.

Re: Silly marina sign

Just one other note about the sign.... It says that the marina will no longer fill gas cans for members of non-members.... --> so this means they (Marina) won't fill gas cans - even at their gas dock?!?!?! --> when did they ever fill cans anywhere else? I never saw them deliver gas to any of the doc...

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...
