Actually, I fixed it. Once I pulled it the problem was instantly apparent, and once I unjammed the part that was stuck, it worked fine. There was some sort of preventer or something that (I believe)...

The outboard my boat came with is having some trouble shifting into Forward; specifically, I have to actually hold it in forward or else it snaps back to neutral within a few seconds. Reverse works...

Someone recently pulled a hit and run on my outboard and broke the stern bracket in half on the made-sometime-in-the-90s Nissan NS 8 outboard I inherited when I bought my boat. I need to replace it,...

Every parent has to make their own choices, I suppose. I can tell you my daughter wouldn't set foot in my boat until she could swim. Of course, she's got little say in the matter since we're starting...

I hear you. My first purchases were a rather un-sexy load of cleaning supplies, I'm going to head down there in a few minutes once the heat lets up a bit and get to scrubbing.

I took classes in MDR, but on the weekends I often sailed with this lot (http://www.singlemariners.org/). You have to be single to sail with them (or fake it), but it's a great time and they're very...
