Re: Pearson 26 outboard issues

Just fix the throttle cable for now, most engines like a little gas to make starting easier and if yours is broken or off it will be harder to start. Stay away from the remote throttle until your...

Re: Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

Thanks again guys. I've been in and out to the boat all day doing some work on it (dodging some thunderstorms). With your help everything is making a whole lot more sense!

Wow brehm62, thank you! You really just saved me a whole lot of time figuring out what is what! I am going to re-read your responses tomorrow and reconfigure some rigging.

Re: Mooring can have local regulations

I always see a few of boats moored at the very upper end of Charlotte Harbor. After some research I found it to be 100% legal, and free. There were some stipulations but I can't remember what they...

Re: Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

Yes that is the traveler, and I got some really funny Google results when looking up a "horse main sheet" :D. But I did learn a few things so I appreciate the post!

Hell, I'm not even sure what...

Re: Best of the bad choices- re-bedding chainplate cover

I guess you are not near a Home Depot, Lowes or Walmart? All three carry 4200 here.

Re: electricity 101 powerdrop when using long cord

Re: Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

Thanks for the reply! I just hope most of that makes sense to me soon :D. Just kidding, sorta. You blow boaters have a language all your own, and I am learning it quickly by reading old posts.

Re: Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

Ok, I can see it now only in my new post. I thought it would add it to the old posts also. I can't see my signature .gif though, says I need 10 posts to see links or images in signatures.

Re: Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

I tried to too but it doesn't show. It shows when I go to edit, but not here. Maybe I don't have enough posts?

More projects start tomorrow...

My bet is a clogged filter, bad vent or sucking...

Newbie here, some project pics..SJ21

Hello all, first post. Just bought a San Juan 21 Mk II yesterday, good shape and it was a racer. I've been doing a lot of reading but I haven't sailed in 20 years, and that was just some Hobie's. ...
