Had to tell a mother her child had died also. Pre-adolescent, healthy strong kid. Knew how to swim and was at a public pool with others swimming. *Should* have been fine "for only a minute". :(

It'd help to know what engine.
Check the normal maintenance things first (thermostats, fluid levels, leaks etc). If those check out, then move to diagnosing cracked blocks and such.

Hunter 260 question

How do you pull up the centerboard? I have the manual and it has the layout of everything. Do you just pull on the line or is there something you have to unlock first?

Just remember, you have to be able to stop it too. If you're going to tow it regularly, you need a bigger truck.

Winter and a water ballast

I know winter is about over, but this is something I am thinking about.

Has anyone tried dropping an aquarium heater down in the ballast tank for the winter?
