Re: transom gate and swim platform

Re: Excellent Oil Changer Cheap and Quick

Being a legendary cheapskate, I made one from an old, free (naturally) propane tank and some left over pipe fittings. I used one motor to generate the vacuum while sucking oil from the other one, then reversed the process. The tank holds well over 15 quarts, which I emptied out later in my shop. Nic...

Way to go!

Re: Fresh Water Holding Tank Pump

If that's one of those pumps with the cog belt drive, do yourself a HUGE favor and accidentally drop in over the side. Get a regular pump and install an accumulator along with it. This reduces the cycling of the pump (and your aggravation level). I made up a little 'pump skid' of plywood (a bottom a...
