Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Got the marine starter installed (took a few trips to machine shop to get the nose mounting holes correct) the stock holes were wrong no matter what way i tuned it. After some new holes it fits and is in a reasonable position (not my first choice but at least I can get all the bolt in). Got the oil ...

Re: Intake Strainers

Thanks Bill; now I see I also need to put the HIN on the hull in a few places. More regulations :)

Not sure I will put the max persons sticker on the boat though...

Re: Electric, Electric/Hydraulic, or Hydraulic Surge

Hi Ken - I think the ship has sailed on the axles for this boat but I will consider it for my next trailer (for the sailboat) for sure!

Edit - on Second thought: I'll take a look and see if I can mount them to the trailer without too much modification and crazy cost adders.

Re: Intake Strainers

Hi Roberta: Thanks for the additional pics! You have sparked my interest in that fuel filter/separator. I think it might be this one Sorry to Nag you again on USCG specs but please note that your fuel hose does not meet USCG Type A1-15 per section 183.558 (page 72) http://www.uscgboating.org/assets/...

Re: Electric, Electric/Hydraulic, or Hydraulic Surge

After much thought and internal debate I am going with surge w/disks with an electric lockout (5 pin connector).

They disks are only a only few hundred more and are much easier to inspect and clean and should last a lot longer from what I hear.

Re: Intake Strainers

Beautiful! Thank you for the detailed pics (how much did that setup cost if I may ask?) I already have the Transmission and Oil heat exchangers on mine so maybe I should think about making it closed cooling for the engine as well? That would probably change my thermostat issue once again as I bet I ...

Re: modified malahini

I would epoxy them again (I would do one coat and then do another hot coat once it stops being tacky ~2-3 hrs later) This helps build thickness as a barrier coat. Sanding is not necessary if you are still in the chemical bond phase. This is a great feature because applying epoxy just to sand it righ...

Re: Intake Strainers

Roberta do you have some details and pics on your heat exchangers? I am probably going to to go raw water but am interested what it would take to do closed cooling. Someone gave me an old heat exchanger for free and don't know if it's with all the extra Plumbing and extra pump to install it.

Amazing job and I am so excited for you that she is on the water!

Re: Intake Strainers

Thanks Paul and Bill.

Paul your hose routing is superb! I have recently added that same thermostat. Are those all AN fittings?
