  2. It could be engine cooling water or onboard water tank water. Check your cooling and exhaust water lines with the engine running and water tank, hoses and fittings for leaks. Ten gallons is a lot of water to be taking on, you definitely need to find the source.

    I could use an upgrade but my switches run horizonal. New Wire switches all seem to run vertical. Anybody know where I can find horizonal labeled switches?

    Switch Covers

    I purchased my covers from this seller on ebay. They ship with switches too, however you can pop the covers and use on your existing. Pretty cool if you want customization (I did for subwoofer and tower amplifiers, etc) https://www.ebay.com/itm/BLUE-Laser-Etched-LED-Rocker-Switch-5-PIN-Dual-Light-20A-12V-ON-OFF-SPEAKER/323700666685?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649
  5. You do remove the drive yearly for service, correct?

    Other sources for covers, at least two years ago, was 3A Marine Services - a seller on eBay, New Wire Marine, and Cecil Marine. 3A and Cecil had most of the covers. New wire had better price on trim covers over Cecil's price.

    Nice! That tool will make it much easier than a small flat head screw driver!

  9. My vents also let water in with spray. But that's only under more extreme conditions. About a week ago or so, I came back to my harbor and into wind and waves head on. Tons of spray came over the bow. No water in the compartment. I use to have a problem with the vents during rain storms while in the slip. I took some plastic pool cover and cut it to size and covered the vents. Bone dry ever since. The vents are not covered while out boating. So I expect some water might get in. But 10 gallons? To me, 10 gallons is a lot of water. Is the water present before you leave the slip or only after you've been out on the water? When you spend the day on the water, how many times are you swimming and then get back into the boat? Do you just "drip dry" or do you towel off? With my boat being so old, I'm a bit paranoid about water in the boat and have a towel on the floor and another towel to dry myself to minimize water on the deck. If too much water gets on the floor, I towel that up too. With my boat, aft of the window frames, the structure of the boat angles into the boat. So any water flowing aft from the window frames will channel the water back into the boat. This caused a lot of damage to my step/shelves and had to be replaced. I had to lay down some clear sealant aft of the window frames to channel it overboard. Water can come in from everywhere! Don't just look at the obvious. Good luck

  11. Send picture of her boat.
  12. Hold off !! I have almost finished the prototype Dockside Tractor Beam. www.SpockEnterprises.com Enjoy.
  13. Guys, I did not think that this could happen to me, I always said that online dating is nonsense, but I found myself a girl on the service https://topinternationaldatingsites.com/thailand-women/ She shares my interests, loves my boat, although this year, due to the coronavirus, my "Admiral" will be in the barn :(, can you imagine? I hope my story will help someone, do not be afraid of online dating, it really works
  14. Thanks for posting that @Mhenry1282, however my merc setup does not seem to have much in common with your vp. FWIW, I still have not figured this out or had a chance to get it back to the dealer. The gauge does the self test correctly when powered on so I believe that rules it out. The internals on the sender itself were dry and looked fine. A DVM hooked up to the sender leads where they connect to the transom harness on the engine show a smoothly varying impedance as the sender is rotated. I also noticed my trim limit is no longer functioning. I can raise the drive all the way to trailering position with a single held press on the binnacle trim switch. I have to imagine that what ever is wrong is causing both issues.
  15. I don't believe in online trainings

    I figure many of you are likely in need of this service by now. Easy, 5 minute upgrade. W
  17. I can see exactly what you're doing there. I still would prefer to be able to control it without having to rely on any outside help, especially in stiff winds. I can always get it into the slip but that front is gone is a second.
  18. I like tis size because it's trailerable and I move it between a few lakes. I'm going to take the power from the Windlass or at least look into that. The windlass and thruster are never used at the same time.
  19. Correct, it is a RAM mount, but my mounting is a little different than Tom. Mine is mounting in the vinyl covered panel ahead of the throttle, versus being mounted in the dash.
  20. If you're reading this short article, chances are excellent that you are thinking of writing your own iPhone app. You probably heard all the exact same things I did prior to I got started. Oh, it's incredibly simple. Anyone can do it. Just write one fast app and you'll get abundant. Well, let me provide you a little bit different point of view. Survey your network to see how they like the apps you are using and if they have any recommendations. You would be amazed by how few businesses really use studies to help in their marketing. It's an extremely effective tool. , IFart Mobile is a fascinating story.. It was developed by a Web marketing master who understood how to work the system and get amazing promotion by producing a meaningless app that he must have known would quickly generate laughter, interest and debate. The perfect mobile apps are ones that have a high engagement value. Consumer testimonials present which https://apkrapido.com/ is among the top rated authorities with regards to mobile apps.

If you simply buy any program and go off the rack without doing any research and planning you can very quickly end up getting a really uninteresting program. Due to the fact that lets be truthful if your children are not going to play it, this will end up collecting dust on the rack. Another benefit of tax software is that it can complete a different and big task over a short time period. If you were to do this by hand, you will discover that it willtake you days or even weeks before you can get the precise quantity right. Most of these apps for vehicles will also sync with your other mobile phones to widen their use and appeal.

All apps start with a conceptso perhaps one day there will be a wash and wax app for cars.
  21. I would go with a 2.2 drive ratio, as it is a big, heavy boat and only a 5.7. Chevk your tach. 2600 RPM and 35 mph does not make sense, even with a 1.81 drive ratio.
  22. Not sure how you’re getting water in the bilge when under way. But in regards to the vents on the side of the boat, you need to keep them open. All air flow into the engine compartment comes into and out of these vents. Typically one side of the boat draws air in, while the opposite side allows fumes to escape. The blower forces this to happen when the boat is not moving fast enough to cause air flow to occur on it own. Both the intake air necessary for engine running as well as venting out the engine compartment of any fumes, are the reasons for these vents in the first place.
