Dog shouldn't be a problem. I have one as do a handful of neighbours.

Re: Buying a New Stove

Force 10 has been owned by Eno for almost 10 years. The stoves are made in France now, not Canada any more. I have owned 2 and wouldn't pick any other. Dickinson, in my opinion, is not as good as...

Re: Toilet Backup

Sounds good. When you place the vented loop for intake make sure it is between the pump and the back of the bowl, not before the pump.

Re: Toilet Backup

The op stated the bowl is full of sewage, not water. I would not expect that to be from the intake.

Re: Toilet Backup

You need a new joker valve. It stops back-flow from the outlet hose. $10 fix.

You still need a stuffing box or pss seal. The shaft has to exit somewhere.

Re: Cheap Electrical Tools = False Economy

I've been using a Blue Seas clamp meter for about 4 or 5 years without a problem. It is used very often (almost daily) and has worked well and survived the knocks and even an occasional drop. Doesn't...

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

If the tubing is always in front of the light I would buy a different type and install it on the top rail of the stern pulpit where it can be seen better. With running lights visibility is everything.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Because your motor is only 2 wire the contactor box shown will not work. It is designed for a 3 wire windlass motor where you are just sending current down one cable or the other, with either...
