Outboard motor mount and resell value

I have a Pearson 28. The inboard is shot. I will repower at some point in time later this year, when I have cash in-hand. In the short term want a motor. I am thinking about an outboard motor...

I am not hauling out this winter. I am in a cheap slip. Cost-wise, it did not make sense. Also, we get plenty of nice weather in the winter months in NC to go sailing. Right now, I am thinking of...

Thanks for all the advice. I have gone with a Pecan stain that should match the rest of the wood fairly close, but, can use that when I refinish other pieces on the boat. I am now putting on...

Thanks for the replies. My thought behind stain was so the tiller would more closely match some of the other woods on the boat which are not natural. So, it sounds like I should either do the...

I just built a new tiller out of Ash. Now I need to finish it. The 2 ideas I have so far are: 1) Stain and then tounge oil, 2) Stain and then varnish. Any thoughts or recommendations?

Thanks,...

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I ended up using a battery powered pump. I wish I had bought one of the vacuum rigs, but, this worked well enough. I only seemed to get 3 quarts out, so, I...

Changing Oil

Hi, I have a 1976 Atomic 4. I want to change the oil. Sounds like I need to pump it out through the dip stick hole. Can anyone tell me how wide that is? That is, what diameter tube can I stick...
