    What have you "jerry-rigged"?

    Not really a jerry rig. Had an old work station for holding doors and other parts while you worked on them. So I cut it apart and designed a rack to give me a second pair of hands when In would removed my outdrive. I have 4 roller plates that you put under a car so you can roll it around. SO when I need to remove my outdrive, I just clamp my rack onto one of my roller plates and wheel it where I want to,and when it is time to reinstall the outdrive I wheel it back and slide it on, no more heavy lifting for this old man, and I don't have to call for help. The way that it works is, I slide the roller plate and rack under the outdrive, then I level the boat and angle the outdrive so it rests on the rack as seen in the photo. I undo the nuts, grab hold of the outdrive and the rack and roll it away. Sorry for all the mineral deposits on the drive, that was before I put on the drive shower. Denny. With the drive shower.

    Anchor recommendations

    Not sure about Rocna, I personally have never heard of them. They look similar, mine is very aggressive. All I know is that my anchor has never failed to set itself. I have 15 ft of 1/4" chain hooked to it, I lay it on the bottom, and it does the rest. Our bottoms are clay, hard packed sand, and weed beds, it has worked in all 3 for me. Denny.

    Headed over to see my girl, and get her ready to take us Perch fishing tomorrow. Denny.
  8. Do you use your dip stick tube to extract the oil? I have always used mine, using a hand pump and fill up gallon antifreeze jug. I thought everyone used that to extract the oil, maybe not. Get the engine hot, comes right out. Denny.

    No start trouble shooting

    Glad to here you were able to fix your issue. That is what I like about my old girl. All I need is, gas, spark and a little compression, and it is easy to see which one that I don't have. Denny.

    You don't have to have a Chap, don't become a stranger, your views and knowledge are always welcome here, I think Bertrams are neat and are very popular in your area. Denny.
  13. Did you check your water pump? If you were getting water in the combustible part of your engine it would stop running. You might also check your freeze plugs, maybe one came out. Denny.

    Thanks, Hatem does good work. You'd be hard found to find one made with the care and quality of this one. Thank you again Hatem. Denny.
  15. I would start looking for blown hoses, etc. Denny.
