DO NOT USE 101 ON PLASTIC!

Polysulphides do bad things to plastic. Use either BoatLife LifeSeal (my preference) or butyl caulk

What model Yanmar? The two levers are decompression levers - when you pull them up, the motor will turn over but not fire. They are very useful when bleeding the engine, which is what I'll guess you...

t22 is right on. The J/30 is a fantastic boat, though, and the right one can be huge bang for the buck. I race and cruise mine.

To fill the hole, you can probably get away with just mixing up some very thick epoxy and...

I'll echo here - the Porter Cable 97355/97366 are, without doubt, the best sander for the dollar. I have two and they're fantastic.

I like the milk jug idea. I'll try that next time I change the oil.

Ouch Tommays. Good luck.

Scott - you DO need a primer for Brightsides. You may be confusing it for Interdeck (non-skid paint).
