Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

23 years old, been sailing since I was 7 days old (napping under the dodger more like it!) Had a Columbia 29' for a few years then an Ericson 32' for the last five, just picked up a Islander 37' MS.

That is one of the things I want to see, if it had a big U bend in it it would likely be worse than the updraft, but the kit may also come with a new manifold?? Not likely but worth looking in to.

Anyone ever modify and atomic four?

Mainly carb. mods, I am thinking about fabbing a new intake manifold to use a sidedraft or downdraft carburetor. Has anyone ever done anything like this or tried?

My Columbia 29 does the same thing, and its just a cheapo stock stuffing box, no real stuffing just grease but the grease no longer does the trick, guess it worked the opening a little bit too large.
