Re: Fuel tank venting question.

the tank should have a molded in barbed vent fitting that accepts a hose which gets clamped and runs (or ran) up to your original vented fuel fill system. sometimes the vented fuel fills don't work so well, and to eliminate it, you would install a separate fuel tank vent and either cap off the vent ...

Re: Yamaha 225 vs 250-Sun Tracker vs Sun Catcher

My 22 foot Tritoon weighed 5000 pounds on the trailer. I would bet that the 23 foot will be close to 5500 pounds. Have you weighed that on the trailer without the tow vehicle on a certified scale? Your comment caught my attention, 5K is a lot for a 22Ft boat of any type, my last boat a 26 FT Aquasp...

Re: Bottom Paint

sounds correct, the Trinadad Pro is a good bottom anti fouling paint, and hard enough to not come off when trailering.

Re: How to keep cats off my toon

Wow, the very same thing was happening to me!! I went out under boat carport, and all of a sudden a cat jumped out from under my cover, scared the shit out of me. Now, my cover snaps the same way yours does apparently, but where the bimini supports come through, there are draw strings and extra mate...

Re: On water towing

and you flag me down and ask for me to spend the next 2-3 hours of my day towing you back to a boat ramp, AND you/or your vessel is NOT in distress, I'm going to get on my VHF and hail your choice of towboat or sea tow if you wish, and bid you a good day. I'm with you there. 11 years out of Panama ...

Re: Another prop question

Tell me about the boat---is it rated for 90---or larger motor? Length, number of toons, weight, etc. If trimming up does nothing-you may be underpowered or too much weight in front of boat, etc..... FYI---I have 20ft Lowe 25in toons, 2 fishing seats up front-90 HP Merc Optimax, Merc SS prop 13 x 16...

Re: Sick & tired of failing Mercury fuel pum float switched failing.

I asked that question--I was told my motor has a couple of fuel pumps and to drain all the gas would take a while to empty everything.. I cant vouch for this but was told not to try it--not worth it. I also thought about running from a 6 gal tank but was told I couldn't run a pre-mix. Not sure if I...

Re: Sick & tired of failing Mercury fuel pum float switched failing.

I know lots of folks who still run ethanol, I gave it up 6 years ago in anything but my daily driver vehicles. I have seen so much destruction of fuel system components in outboard motors, even with after market additives. My advise to everyone is if you can get non-ethanol gas: https://www.pure-gas...
