Re: 318 ignition system

For what it's worth, I bought a pair of pertronics distributor and coils for my 318s. I won't go into how my original distributors met their demise...just pay attention when you hook up your old Judson sync. What happened under the cap qualified as welding. Im pretty sure there was only one rotation...

Re: running on one engine to save fuel?

Crazy as it sounds, everything I know about boats I learned from the internet and drunk people. So far so good. Praying for a quick thaw in upstate NY.

Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

Thanks Busia. I was in Louisville KY last month and met Dennis Pluckebaum. His father designed the hull on the river cruiser and built them for Marinette. Later that design was used by pluckebaum for 40 years. Cool to make these kind of connection s to our boats. Thanks for the contact info.

Re: New Boater, New to me Marinette.

Great pics. Love the stripped cabin. Would love the opportunity to clean mine like that. Will keep my OCD in check and stay focused. Could you pass on contact info for Tom Althouse?
