Re: which prop is better

Don't put them on until you determine what pitch they are!

Wouldn't you be embarrassed if the boat would not plane off with them, or screamed like mad at cruising speed!

PS: Mine were 17 x 15s.

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

There you go!

Sometimes I miss my boat--especially since I could afford to run it now!

Re: which prop is better

It depends on the pitch. On my 32 footer with 360s I ran 15 pitch (4 blade) props that worked well. Top rpm was about 4,000, and she cruised nicely at 2,500 rpm making about 18 to 20 mph and burning 9.5 gph per engine. Gas mileage was much better than with the old 16 pitch, 3 blade props. The only t...

Re: No Fire

If your carbs are those old Carter AFBs, you might have to replace them. One of mine was so porous the ethanol gas (which no doubt made it worse) would leak right through the base under vacuum and mess up the idle. (With the mixture screws all the way in, the motor was still a bit rich.) After sever...

Re: Tranmission

Did that twice to mine and both trannies survived. You'll need to fill/ suck out the dirty fluid/ refill/ repeat a few times before you get things back to normal. I used a Mighty Vac hand pump on mine and it works fine.

..."Capt Tolley's Creeping Crack Cure"

That's it! Thanks, Joel. I was wracking what little is left of my brains.

That stuff works very well at sealing windshield leaks. Sometimes it takes a few applications, if the gap is large.

Re: Windshield seals

If your concern is that the rubber is leaking at the glass/ frame joint, there is a product out there that seals it beautifully. The only problem is, I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. It's a white liquid that dries to seal the joint. As I recall, it was made in England. Can anyon...

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

I recall paying nearly 4 bucks a gallon for marina fuel!

With the present "fuel crisis" they're practically giving it away. Bought some 87 octane the other day for $1.78 a gallon.

Re: No Fire

Try some ether (starting fluid).

Good luck.
