Re: Zebra Mussels - Lakes

20 years ago Lake Ontario was viewed by many to be grossly polluted, they wouldn't go any where near it. Now when we have non boat friends out on the boat they are amazed how beautiful the water is.

Re: Battery Recommendations

Eg. 2 x ( 6volt, 240 amp hour) = 12 volts at 240 amp hours.

Re: overpropped vs underpropped

Decrease a pump by 15% rpm and you get 15% less flow.
