Skip to #26 then revisit it several times throughout the build!
That is good advice!

That's true Carl!

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

its been crappy/dreary to work on the boat outside so I have been up to other things the last few months (like working too much...) I thought I would take a look at the todo list and update it to motivate me to make some more progress when the dreary days pass. Here is the list I published on Oct 14...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thoughts on routing the tank outlet straight or at 90 degrees? There will be less head for the pump to pump if i use the 90. Would not want anyone to step on it though. The hose would get routed along hte back. I i use the straight then the house would get routed up under the covering boards. The ho...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

Thanks for the tips Jim and Carl. For now I will forgoe the spring as it seems to be working well. Smooth operation and no binding with a snug rope. Over the past few days I got the gas tanks ready to install. On the bottom of the tanks I 5200ed some 1/4" FRP . I also 5200ed any gaps between the mou...

Here’s what happens when a fuel filter leaks on top of the engine. It was a rough day.
Yep, same thing happened to my friends Cougar; did you fix it up? I will stick with the one remote mounted filter / water separator.

Same here I just have a water separator/filter like Paul shows. On the suction side just before the fuel pump.
Thanks Rich - Good to know, that makes my life easier.

Why do you need another filter in addition to the Fuel filter/water separator? My 1991 351 donor motor didn’t have any filtration after the water separator filter.
I thought that I did (per coast guard pic), but maybe not; I am open to suggestions.

Re: Gas Fuel Filters

Here are some inks to marine-rated fuel filters and heads. Thanks Paul! So do you have a water separator before the pump and a water separator after the pump? What is throwing me off is that the filter you linked (GLM 24940) says it is a water separating filter (but it does not have a bowl). Would ...

Gas Fuel Filters

Any recommendations for a marine rated gasoline fuel filter? This will be the post-pump filter for my 250 Hp Chevy 327. I will have a water separator before the pump, 60Gph, 10Micron. It says it can only be installed before the pump on the suction side as it is only rated for 1.5PSI working pressure...

Re: 16' Ski Boat Restoration

I installed the steering cable today and it works. I have 2 turns of the wheel lock-to-lock (720 deg). The rope is pretty snug but not guitar string tight. I see that some boats have springs for tension, from what I have read it is to allow outboards to tilt (they need a variable length rope vs moto...
