Re: Force 10 Igniter issue

I use the wand lighter on one of the stove top burners which is no problem; however, on my propane force 10 heater the wand is a pain to get to that burner. I haven't been able to find a replacement...

Re: Silly Anchoring Question

Medsailor, looking at your diagram in post 65 is exactly the way I had originally set my line from the waterline in my Tayanna. I figured that the low attachment point would allow the boat to be...

Re: Diesel engine strange problem
