Re: Location of official hull number

PCS is the official identifier for Pacific Seacraft. I am sorry, I forget the reason but I do recall it being a very boring reason.

Re: How often to change impeller?

At $20 per impeller I would be much happier at my yearly impeller change than I am now. The Yanmar 3gm30f impeller goes for more like $40. I have always thought there must be a good quality...

Re: oil and water gauges

Brian,
