Re: Bottom paint in Florida

Where are you in Florida?

Trilux held up for about a year and a half.

If you are by me in Miami, I recommend you drive your boat as far north as possible to have any work done :)

Re: Steering Stuck

Great feedback. I bought the Glen L Steelmaster cable so we'll see if it gets here in time. I'm also looking at the new system too. I like the new system idea much better for the same reason Jeff noted above (easy to get parts) If I have to destroy the fork to get the old cable off, I'll simply go w...

Re: Pertronix Distributor Test

I actually had them send me a new clamp because the aluminum cap clamp fused together. I also had to replace my coil because the terminal rusted (the metal was not marine rated) Other than the corrosion issues, it runs good after a year. I do see some rough metal in the distributor cap contacts but ...

Re: Steering Stuck

I don't see the point. Its one more thing to break and its not like I usually have to struggle with the steering. Just more money :) Good news is that my rudder is free so I just need to find the replacement cable assy (which is obsolete) Any ideas on what I can use to replace the unit? Any sources ...

Re: Steering Stuck

UG - Mine does something similar but I cant see if its twisting because I'm turning the wheel. I'm ordering everything now so I have it if needed because the holiday is near. Everything is so rusted, I cant even disconnect from the lever. The rudder shaft slides up and down when I try to bang the pi...

Steering Stuck

Last year, I always had to work the steering free at the beginning of a trip. I assumed the issue was a lube thing. Well, I got too busy and let the boat sit in the water for 7 months without moving it and now my steering is pretty stuck (got it to pull the rudder about 2 inches but thats about it) ...

Re: Battery ground to hull?

Made it out to the boat this weekend and cleaned all the super corroded connections. I have to replace a ton of components because of snapped or disintegrated terminals. Question: After disassembling the ground system to clean, I see that the battery only grounds to the engine block. There are a few...
