Re: Electrical Inspection Checklist

M's typically have ckt breakers. They're described as aircraft type which would be logically considering the origins of the company. In the cabin, they are usually behind the panel over the helm. I do recall a breaker on the engine itself - for the engine but I don't think that's what you're asking ...

Re: Windshield Wiper Motor

I know this doesn't help, but about 10 yrs ago when I still had the boat, I found the company that made them and got some replacement parts (the motors were ok)..and I posted the contact info in the vendor list at that time. I don't know where that info went. But I believe the tip was something prin...

Re: Topside paint question

Painting tip: don;t paint the foredeck glossy white. The sunlight bouncing off that surface can be blinding. Flatten paint in that area. White will still be bright but not as reflective. Or go with another,darker color in that region

Re: Source for 5/8" starboard marine anti slip

My choice for look good, very low maintenance, easy to cut, last forever material is Plasteak (akron, OH) with a plastic sheet underlay for added rigidness (Plasteak planks themselves flex across an open span).

I'd advise using the best thread since that's the thing that unravels under the punishment of the sun a...

Re: 1985 Sportsman Restoration Beginning

From experience questions 1 and 2 are totally unimportant. Skip first to question 3 and do what wife says. Always.
