Re: Bow rail bend fix

Last photo- looking down to get an idea of and sideways bend- very minimal, it was mostly pushed straight up.

The idea to try to ratchet and slowly bend it back to place appeals as a first try. I...

Re: Bow rail bend fix

I'm leaning towards first attempting to slowly apply pressure with a wide strap or line so see if I can...

Re: Bow rail bend fix

Whatever is done, is it better to remove the whole rail from the boat? I think that enough pressure to bend steel could potentially transfer down to the deck and further damage the boat.

I'll try...

Looking for ideas of how to bend the bow-rail back to shape... All you clever members please throw out ideas.

Re: Won't Start after 4 hours of cruising.

Since the incident, the engine starts fine.

I'm looking into adjust the throttle throw. Perhaps it's running a little low at idle? It never sets off an alarm, but when I first got the boat there...

Got it - Thanks. Sorry I tune into at work to check responses and read that too fast the first time, responded and submitted before my manager came back from lunch without double-checking.

Stayed...

re: Cruising California. Experiences and advice.

I think you should start in SoCal, if that's what you want, and it's going to be more comfortable, and less risk.
