Re: Pertronix Distributor Test

Any idea if Pertronix makes a distributor for a 440? When you look in the "Marine" section of their catalog, it only mentions the 318.

Back pressure?

Recently my BigM seems very finicky about the exhaust outlets being submerged. Under typical conditions they sit 2-3 inches above the water. When we back it down the boat ramp, she won't start if the outlets are under water. Then, a few days ago we had some extra people on board which caused the exh...

Re: Rough seas

Worst I have done so far is 3-4 footers in my 28'. She wobbles and bobbles all over the place but I have not felt threatened. Have to go slow. If I try to cruise she pounds. The main problem is I get so much wind shield spray that visibility is almost nothing. Have to use the GPS almost exclusively ...

Re: picture of hull annodes.

Moderate corrosion on the anodes is fine but if they look really chewed up then they need to be replaced. Plastic ...

Re: Aluminum in Salt water

These are the ingredients of Trilux 33, pulled from the Interlux Website. Note the second ingredient, Cuprous thiocyanate . It is a copper derivative. This stuff is considered safe for aluminum hulls IF you have a proper barrier coat in place. Cuprous oxide is the main antifouling agent in paint for...

Re: Bridge clearance requirements for 32 FB

You will need more than 9.

My 28 express (no flybridge) needs 9.5 feet of bridge clearance and that's if I fold down all my flags and antenna.

A 32 flybridge will be a couple feet taller.
