Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

You don't need to buy a flair tool. Take a 3/8" bolt, put a heavy washer on the outside and a light washer on the inside. Bend the tube a little with a screw driver. Put the bolt assembly in the tube. As you tighten the bolt the light washer will start to dish. The tube end will start to flair....

Re: Trasom Drains: Yea or Nay?

Mark My Tahoe doesn't have drain plugs. I do have 300gph Rule bilge pumps. Two for the shaft log leakage and 2 for rain. It is amazing how much rain gets into a boat. The Bartender has Garboard drains. Wish It didn't. The pumps don't get everything. I have 3 sets of Rule 500gph pumps On an outboard ...

Re: I guess it's time to come out of the closet!Bartender 24

I was afraid that I had really screwed up! When Butch and I pulled the boat after the Gathering, I had problems at the ramp. I decided to just line the boat onto the trailer. When we got back to Hales Bar parking, Butch got out of the truck and yelled, "The engine is still running!". I've ...

Re: Zip Help Needed - Cavitation, Turbulence, Transom Height?

I've been thinking on this one. Many of the older engines just had a shear key on a tapered shaft. If the nut was really tight the prop might not slip until under much load even with the key sheared. I just don't know this engine.
