Re: Can use some help

Well the impeller was replaced mid last season when we swapped this motor on. Only had the boat out 3 times after that due to medical issues. One thing I noticed last night when I started it up was the pee stream was not solid. It would have a little spurt about ever 3 to 4 seconds. Any thoughts on ...

Re: Can use some help

I have always had water coming out the pee hole when the motor is running. Unless a critter has put a plug in it while it was sitting. Actually last night when it first started there was no water coming out so I turned it off and ran a wire in the pee hole. Fired it back up and had a strong flow out...

Re: Can use some help

You may be right lake runner. I left it turned off about 30 minutes to get the chickens and went back turned the key on and no sound.
Now thats its dark and fixing to storm I will wait to crank the motor and see if it does it again.
Thanks

Can use some help

About 2 or 3 minutes all of a sudden I hear a high pitch continuous whistle. Turn off stereo and no change. Turn off motor and it goes away. T...

Re: Poor man's power pole

The emt brackets and plastic conduit also work well to cover the boat so you can stand up under it to work on boat!

Re: Creative cover installation tips for the old and lazy ,,,

Its hard to see in the first pic buy there is a high strength rope that runs from the big oak in the ...

Re: First day on the water at Table Rock

After cutting several anchor ropes with different styles of anchors I ran across the Digger Anchor. If you get hung up in rocks or trees you just idle across where the anchor is and snap on the rope which releases a spring loaded pin. The anchor then flattens out and comes right up. I have been usin...

Re: Cancun

Take her to St Maarten some time. Dont have to worry about drinking the water! Ask for Nate the Great for a taxi. One of the finest folks you will ever meet. Tell him Larry and Connie said Hi and he will treat you well
