Re: 318/392 Stroker Motors

Hey Jeff, is there an easy fix for prop wash on the rudders? Do you mean the paint that is ripped off the rudders from the props? There is no known method that I have found.

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

In my opinion handling a 32 with the wind on the beam can be tough, and doing it by yourself makes it even more difficult. Maybe things are different on the river but on the Great Lakes its always windy and it always seems to be pushing me off the dock. If you end up using the boat as a cottage tied...

Re: Bare Bottom?

Bottom paint is primarily for keeping the growth away from the hull. Paint or no paint you should be protected with anodes and proper DC & AC grounding. Also make sure your shore cords and your neighbor shore cords are healthy. I had a neighbor 2 boats down cause my galvanic isolator to buzz. Fo...

Re: whistle noise when shifting in gear

Thought about this after my initial post..... (Jeff can back me up on this)....The hose that feeds into the bottom/side of the housing can be removed and you may or may not find an inline screen. Make sure its not dirty/clogged. My trans did not have any screen that I could locate. Also, depending o...

Re: whistle noise when shifting in gear

Check trans fluid when HOT. Immediately after running the boat at temp, shutdown engines and check fluid level.
Note: Cold fluid level will be OVER the full mark.

I run Valvoline DEX/MERC (for vehicles requiring DEXRON-III / MERCON)
***Don't use fluid higher than DEXRON-III***

Re: Everything Marinette

Looks like they may have been made by Garelick. Don't see them in the product lineup anymore but might give them a call.

Re: Sliding cabin screens

They are probably crap. The factory screen hardware was crap too. You will find the threads strip very easily when trying to make wheel adjustments. Can't hurt to give them a try at $3.50 but they may not hold up.
