Re: Concerned about condition of the mast before buying. Advice?!

The boat is not properly taken care of. The bolts and nuts, the foot of the mast, even the hose clamps on the hoses of bilge pump, and the connection of two pieces of hose tells me to keep clear.

Re: Wiring a Bilge Pump

Solder is not recomeded:
