Re: Long shot

I would start by looking up the registration number. Does that state issue titles to a boat? Find out who they have listed as the owner. Otherwise, it is easy in some states to get a title for a re-constructed car/boat or for storage fees.

Re: Hard to start?

Check if you have gas in the float bowl of the carb. ( pump the throttle, does the accelerator pump squirt gas down the throat of the carb? )
Actually, it is good to crank it awhile if you have the battery and starter that will handle it. Build up oil pressure before it runs. That drains down too.

Re: New hole needed

I just used the seacock that supplied raw water for the port engine. What little water you use for the head won't make a difference to the engine. I welded up all the holes in the hull that I could eliminate.

Re: Anchors

The chain is what makes the anchor hold. Use lots of chain.

Re: Facebook v. Marinette Forum posts

Noticed that awhile ago. Seems to be quality vs. quantity. Often I advise people to look on this site for the correct info, sometimes I see unbelievably wrong info on the Facebook group. I think most people are on Facebook already, so that's what they use.

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

Welcome to the group. #1. Does it just stink, or does it smell like gasoline? ( the engine will only smell a little oily when it's hot) If it is gasoline, be very careful! Open everything up and turn on your bilge blowers. Then fix the leak. Most likely it is a skunky smell from the shower sump, the...
