Another Mercury Question

Two stroke motors are designed to run at high rpm''s, un like 4 stroke. Prolong low rpm operation in a two stroke is not good for it. If you contact merc they can probably tell you what the optium...

Another Mercury Question

Top end speed loses low end power, low end power loses top end speed. Prop pitch is typically matched to allow the motor to operate at its optium rpms. Why not try taking the prop to a prop shop...

No engine power

Agreed. I would change the filters first and see if that corrects the problem. If it does then go after the fuel and find out what is causing the clog. If not, then move on to the injectors. If...

Foxglove- I to just moved to the Chesapeake and will be leaving the boat in this year. I have mixed feeling about it. It is my understanding that you do your typical winterization, the same as if...

How to stop a singing mast?

How about wrapping a large towel around the mast and hoisting it half way up via a spare halyard. Remember a tag line to get it back down with. That may be enough to change the vibration rate. It...

outboard fuel pump strength

The motor shouldn''t have a problem pulling fuel. The in line bulb is used to fill the line prior to starting. Once started the motor itself will draw the fuel. My 5hp has a 8'' fuel line to a...

OutBoard Motor Bracket for Peason 424

Is it safe to assume the bracket fits, but the motor''s lower unit doesn''t clear the top of the cockpit? If this is the case I would get a piece of plastic cut to create a wedge and epoxy it to the...

Wind Chimes

Check the marina rules. If they are not addressed see if the marina would add wind chimes to the "Not Allowed " list, just like no grilling at the dock, which many marinas do not allow.

Catalina 35

I would like to second Eddiex comments. Handholds work quite well, I have no idea what Denr is talking about. Plenty of storage and plenty of room. Hardware is better that the competition''s. ...

Hobie Hulls

As long as the pontoon are dry you should have maximun flotation. Hobie 16 hulls don''t displace a lot of water so they do squat quite a bit with heavier loads, I speak from experience. I usually...
