Re: How to charge a SEALED lead acid battery?

Check out the Battery Tender products the documentation indicates that the pannel can not be submerged but nothing about keeping it out of the elements.

A picture from a little more distance would provide a better idea of the direction of the loads on the cleat. Is that a mooring pennant attached to the cleat using an eye at the end of the pennant?...

Re: How frequently Do You Change Your Raw Water Impeller?

Agree 100%. Your can't really inspect it properly without pulling it out of the pump. Makes no sense t o me to risk the damage of overheating the engine for the cost of an impeler once a year.

Re: Maintaining an outboard

Agree with getting the gas in small quantities. Since I started using the internal tank and ValvTech gas I have had no problems with my 4hp Mercury.

Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

The Tohatsu 25 will idle and run perfectly with the engine cover off but as soon as I put the cover on it begins to sputter. The air intake on the cover is not blocked in any way but for some reason...

Re: SmartGuage Review

Makes sense as the blower always runs for a bit after it is turned off. I'll see if I can find a wire diagram for the thermostat to see if it could be wired to the relay?

Re: SmartGuage Review

Main Sail

Both the Link 10 and SmartGuage can be used to operate a relay, correct? If that is correct would the SmartGuage be a better option than the Link 10 to turn off an Espar heater?
