Re: Prop Size - Yamaha 150 (four stroke)

are you running the Yamaha reliance series SDS prop? Mine came with the SDS Stainless 15 pitch, I can hit 6K @ 38-39 mph light load.

Re: Marine 31 Mildew

I think Marine 31 products may be about as good as cleaning products and protectants get. My new Gander Mountain store carries a full line of their products. I was thinking that some of the auto detailing online stores also carry it--like Autogeek.com. my amazon order was filled by a car detailing ...

Re: New Pontoon Boat owner

Just checking: Key was ON (correct)? your on the right track. Here is how you can short cut some time. If you can use a test light or voltmeter, first you must fine a good working ground, turn your key ON, test light clip to ground, test light probe touching the + Red Side on back of fuel gauge, if ...

Re: Marine 31 Mildew

303 vinyl cleaner or marine spray 9, or "awesome" from the dollar tree store is the cheapest route

Re: New Pontoon Boat owner

Our family has joined the pontoon world. After my bowrider sank last month, my wife and daughter "suggested" that we investigate a pontoon boat. I'm just glad that she suggested any boat at all! So we looked and found a 2004 Bentley 240 Cruise - in fantastic shape - and made the leap. I have to adm...

Re: 1st Boat Questions

built, repaired, owned boats since I was 10 yrs old (46 yrs). here's my advice opinions: 1. Inboard vs. Outboard - Go outboard, especially if you operate in salt water. Inboard Outboards (I/O) have a much higher maintenance schedule because of the amount of components involved, CV Joints, Outdrive B...

Re: Gas Shock for "changing room"

Any markings or numbers on the one you have can help ID the replacement, all the numbers have a meaning, length, lbs. of force etc.. look this site over.

Do you guys use Concorde's on the aircraft? Not sure what they use, Air Force T-1 and T-6 and Navy T-45 and T-6 and the Blues, F-18 (not super hornet). I run the Support Equipment Division (AGE for Air Force language) Marc My kid is doing AGE in Wichita KS. He just earned his slot for SSGT. Went th...

Re: Deep Cycle Batteries

Guess that was an assumption on my part, never been around air force birds, except the one time a few years back a B-1 was stranded on our ramp, it had been here for a week and the accumulator emptied out, well they couldn't get the APU lit off because it need some very strange power, all Navy aircr...

Re: Deep Cycle Batteries

Marc. Thanks for the explanation. I’m assuming that since I can get free UPS batteries, that I won’t need Marne batteries. I’ll just replace with another free battery as needed. I just didn’t know the differences. FlounderPounder. I never worked on the aircraft batteries, but I did fix instruments ...

Re: Deep Cycle Batteries

Thanks Marc, good technical data. I knew in generalities about the different Batts as I've been around this stuff my whole life, but never that technical. We have a Battery Shop here at AIMD NAS Pensacola, mostly AGM for our Aircraft Support Equipment, and then the Aircraft Batteries. Bet my folks d...

Re: Painting toons

the prep would be the same as your bottom paint, the difference would be the top coat. I would research petit or one of the other marine paints, awlgrip is a good boat paint, what would need is an etching aluminum primer, then a compatible top cost polyurethane or epoxy, most can be rolled but that ...

How’d it go for you?

It worked great on my Bimini.
Good to know, used the boat all last weekend, but didn't leave it out from under the carport because "Gordon" was coming through.

Re: Water in Toon

Last tracker I worked on had water in the tubes, removed the red plastic plugs on the tops of the toons, took a 1/4 inch copper tubing bent to drop in and hit the bottom of the toon, attached clear tubing to that and then used my MITIVAC vacuum hand pump to start the siphon, keeping the pump lower t...
