Re: Mercrusier 140 ,Starts, runs, and dies !

also check the fuel lines for small vacuum leaks. its not uncommon to have a small one that is fine and idle, but under load it sucks air and kills the motor. while your at it check the carbs/ floats/ filters and diaphrams.

Re: Spun prop hub??

1st disconnect the power( better still is pull the plugs) put it in gear and try to spin the prop by hand. if it moves, you have spun hub/key. very common and easy to fix.

Glen l 15 sail area question.

So long story short, at the local insurance salvage yard there is a 3 year old Catalina 16.5 that was hit by a car. The damage is not that bad, but we'll past worth fixing. The thing is the rigging and sails are in perfect shape. It can be bought for about 1400. Could a Glen l 15 handle that much sa...

Re: Rollers or Bunks for Flats Flyer

After that, composite or wood? Anyone try both? The obvious goal would be not to replace the wood boards composite will not work, it is way too flexible. most of them recommend joists at 12" on center, where standard is 16" a few even require it. either pt or red wood. fyi, do not use galvanized ha...
