Re: 1st Boat Questions

Hen, The above is good advice and I can not add much to the conversation. Boating is like being around any machinery in that within a season or two you will become familiar with your boat and motor. I would advise a safety course and if you really want to have a lot of knowledge at your disposal get...

Re: Question regarding Forum Posting Structure

Bamby, That is why I suggested the topics be listed in Chronological order from most recent to oldest. That way one could just look from the top of list to see what was new or to follow an interested post. Even unregistered folks could see what was being discussed most recently and would not get los...

Re: Pull you fenders in!!

Steve, I hear you however I think you will find that in the pontoon community fenders bouncing around over the gunwale will not bother folks the way it would in a marina filled with CC's like Regulators or Yellowfins. Many pontoon owners did not grow up on vessels or cruising open water where many b...

Curtis,

Re: Question regarding Forum Posting Structure

Steve, Yeah, it seems that it would be easier to have most recent posts sorted chronologically as most other boards do. For all the new posts, the "New Posts" works however if someone is new to the board they can not easily find a topic that may be of interest to them. They may get tired of sorting ...

Re: Where to spend $2,000 tops for speed.

I think the guys are right on this one AND you can not get there from where you are at, As stated, you do not have enough hp to get you the benefits of more speed and your hull would not support the additional hp. AND as said, even if you did over power the hull with more power your hull would still...

Re: Question regarding Forum Posting Structure

Craig, Thanks for the info. I tried that and it works for todays posts and will use that info. However, it would still be helpful if the topics were shuffled so they were in chronological order from the top down according to last post date on the topic. If you are looking for a topic it would be eas...

Question regarding Forum Posting Structure

Sometimes I have issues finding the most recent topics. Is there any reason why the latest posted topics are not rotated to the top of the discussion so they can be easily found and responded to? I know this is minor and may be due to the structure of the administration of the board but just curious...

Re: old gasoline

Jim, This info should help those that are more mechanically inclined. The info already posted about the fuel should address any "old fuel" issues. If it is a starter then it will not turn over. It may just do nothing or may click or grunt. I would first check the voltage on the battery to make sure ...

Re: old gasoline

Flounder,
Thanks for the in-depth explanation of the VST and filter.
I agree, the original OP needs to provide more info IF he still needs to address the issue.
Hopefully, the OP will provide more info as now I am curious as to the problem...

Re: old gasoline

After giving it some thought, doesn't the VST also have a filter that could be clogged? I know on many Yamaha's it does. I imagine for many getting to the VST may be a real job and can't remember if you have to take the pump off to get to the filter..Would seem backward but then I do not design them...
