Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Sounds good ! You have thought of everything, now if you can just bring the price of gas down.

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

I see you are using the same fuse holders I have. May I suggest that if you have room, that you install an extra one and label it "spare". It sure is nice to have one holding a spare 20 amp fuse right at your finger tips when you need it, or a spare cap if one is bad or gets dropped. Plus ...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

That's what I wondered. Sounds like the factory changed how they installed them on the newer vessels. As long as you have red for the throttles it is understood what they do. Mine were four black handles so I have red tape color coding the throttles and a big L and R under them. Sometimes the driver...

Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Looks like you have both throttles together and both shifters together. ( assuming the red handles are throttles ) Did it come that way? I am use to shifter and throttle for each engine being together. i.e. The left and right gas in the center, and left shifter on the far left and right shifter on t...

Re: Prop Shaft Seal question

Doubt you have that kind of seal. Looks like a "dripless seal" . You should have a simple shaft seal with some packing. Any plumbing or marine store will have the packing and info. Hardest part is getting to it, but very simple technology. PM me if you have questions.--Ed

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

Tighten them up first and see if they stop leaking. Everyone thinks they leak all the time, but a lot of times the oil is not from there. There is no oil pressure there so it doesn't take much to seal them.

Re: Paint scheme

Be advised that the reds and oranges fade quickly. Plus they cost a lot more.
Me, I just have a fishing boat.

Re: Aft Deck... Diamond plate aluminum?

I replaced the sidewalls up to the gunnels with aluminum when I did the deck. Just plan it out, and cut the sheets with a skilsaw that has a carbide blade. More teeth the better.

Re: Aft Deck... Diamond plate aluminum?

Don't know why the factory went to all the trouble and expense of putting down a wooden deck. I put the wood in the dumpster and put the plate right on the framing. Countersink the holes and put SS sheet metal screws from above. I got non-skid paint for the deck but never used it. I don't walk baref...
