Re: Prepping for Topside Restoration and Paint.

Your yard mechanic will use any old screw he dug out of the bottom of his tool box. You should keep a supply of new #8 and #10 stainless screews and only move up when you have to. Also use Tef-gel.

Re: Aft Deck Restoration

Cut new plywood decking from 5/8" exterior plywood. Had a pickup bed sprayer spray and underlap the bottom side by 6". Replaced the big washer on the cockpit drains with a big 1/4" aluminium flage that fits under the corner side walls. Tighten the cockpit drain nut and the deck is tig...

Re: Marinette purchase advice

Are any of the windows cracked? Are all the cushions and V=berth there? Are all the screens in place. Do any high dollar extras like radar and autopilot come with the boat? How about splash guards. bimini, bumper baskets. anchor winch. What does the capac say? A very big deal is paint. A professonal...

Re: Wanted Trailer for 28 Sportsman Twin

I got two used trailers both needed a lot of work which meant a big hassle for me. I still will need 10 new tires in the next couple of years. Check out new if you need a trailer to manage your boat. My best trailer is a slideon which was worth restoring. The other was a cheap but a piece of crap. h...

Re: Poly Glide Replacement - More On Order!

Interstate Plastics sent me an email saying they didn't have the 2 rolls I ordered. Changed it to two rolls of non-adhesive .062" x .75" x 50'.

Re: Poly Glide Replacement - More On Order!

I can't wait. I need to install 2 windows on my 32' and 4 on my 28'. I looked all over the net for the right sizes.. This is the closest I could find. I ordered DURASUEF from Interstate Plastics. It has adhesive which I didn't want. I will have to leave the paper covering it up or use my 3M adhesive...

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

The stb engine is now running right. The primary carb system's accelerator pump and the power piston were gummed up. We sprayed some seafoam inside and freed them up. The engine started easier. When the secondary throttle opened the engine back fired and we had to back off. We were concentrating our...

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

I am in Escanaba. The carburator guy is a few blocks from the fairgrounds. I dont have any paperwork so I would need to look for his house. By the way you said gas leaks out the "rod". That is a common wear point. One of my books says to install bronze shaft bushings. This make a more elab...

Re: 1988 lm318 carburetor

I bought 3 books on rochester carburators prepping to rebuild my two. My problem was crud from old gas. Once I cleaned the fuel system up I began my carburator project. The rochester has a spring loaded filter screen screwed into the inlet. Mine were full of crud and letting unfiltered gas and dirt ...

Re: Nautolex - Original White w/Charcoal Stripes

I bought a roll of that original pattern for my 28'. Then I decided it was more work than I wanted to do and cut new 5/8" plywood and had it sprayed with grey bedliner. One of the best things I did and didn't need to buy marine grade plywood.
