    Cooler recommendations

    Some guys that I know, when they go on extended trips, line the bottom of their coolers with dry ice. Denny.

    Cooler recommendations

    Still can buy a small bag of ice here on the lake for 1.25 to 2.00, depending where you are. It is hard when you are a captive audience, like your, to get a bargain. Denny.

    Small Danby fridge. Use it sometime with ice packs or hook it to shore power. Denny.

    Running Mercruiser Out of Water

    Better to be safe than sorry. If it had be me, it would bug me to death if I did not physically look at it myself. And as long as you have it apart, put the new one in that you bought just encase you found it to be bad. Denny.

    Steering wheel off center and some play

    After 30 yrs. of use, mine kept getting looser every year, so I decided to replace mine. Brand new out of the box, still had some play, and zero adjustments. I think the only way around it is to put in what the go fast and faster boats use. It all depends on how much it bothers you and how much jingle you have in your pocket. Denny.

    Drive showers?

    Out drive gets hot, boils the water, what is left are the mineral deposits. The faster you go, the hotter the drive, but you will get the deposits as soon as you get the drive above the water. It will run cooler and cleaner. This is my 3rd season and no deposits. Denny.

    5.0 MPI misfire

    Engines are too complicated today. I really feel for you guys that are having these types of issues. What ever happened to gas, spark and a little compression to make an engine run, and the ease of finding out which one that you did not have. Makes me love my old girl even more. Denny.

    Wearing Shoes on Customer's Boat

    Wear your normal boat shoes, they make footies that will fit over them. This way your feet are dry, and your customer will see that you care. Denny.

    Should I install Trim tabs?

    I have Bennett's, and they give me full control of the attitude at any speed. Smart tabs are good too, if you only need to have them do one thing. Denny.
