  1. Cats on boats??? Must be a Californy thing.
  2. YES, horrible bad luck. It was so bad we sold the boat. Do the ceremony for the love of G0d man. You don't want the wrath of the sea gods to descend upon you. I'll start praying for you now
  3. Up here in Ontario, the standard boat speed is 10 KPH or less anytime that a boat is operating within 30 meters (100 ft) of the shore. Boaters can be fined up to 500 deer for violating this speed limit. This also applys to posted "No Wake" zones. I'm sure there must be something similar in your area. http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/marinesafety/debs-obs-operation-enforcement-menu-95.htm
  4. The way we put our cover back on last year was we turned it inside out and starting at the closed end, rolled it onto the mattress much like putting the peel back on a banana (if you catch my drift)
  5. Have you had a code reader hooked up to check for ECU error codes. It sounds to me like a TPS is acting up. It sends the throttle position information to the ECU. Could be it's sending the wrong information and the ECU is putting the engine in safe mode.
  6. Holy jeezinheimer. That is one sad looking pic of a burning boat. My heart goes out to you.
  7. Welcome Sean. Not sure what year your 260 is but on our 240, the switches for the cabin lights and pressure pump for the water are on the helm console. As for the water, I would think that if you cracked an opening in the keel of the boat the water would end up in the bilge. A gallon of water seems to be a lot of water to get in the v-birth storage compartments. Is your anchor locker drain plugged up?
  8. +1 - My Admiral can slip our boat just as well, if not better at times, than I can. Don't sweat it.
  9. He picked it up at the boat show in Toronto this year. You can order the kit from their website. Not to bad of a price and they are in Ontario so shipping shouldn't be too much.
  10. Has anyone used Poli Glow on their gelcoat. I watched a dock mate at our marina today and this stuff is amazing. I'm normally skeptical with stuff like this but as I watched the process I was pretty impressed. Any thoughts?
  11. Good one bud.
  12. Wow, that is one great looking boat. Is that Zyrex you put on the bottom?
  13. Used to be a guy that lived just east of Peterborough (Apsley or Jack Lake) that had all kinds of parts for them and a couple of running ones. That was back in the early 80's though.
