  1. Thanks, she has spent 99% of her life on a trailer, after a redo in 92.
  2. If you have the time, you might enjoy this look at my Great Lakes. Denny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lWeYa0_5bc
  3. Thanks for sharing. Denny.
  4. Me Personally, I would measure the space and get the largest one that will fit. Denny.
  5. Even short 2600 rpm cruises will accumulate. Just getting the drive out of the water is enough to do it.
  6. Not if you have a Mercruiser outdrive without thru hull exhaust. 2nd season with no abrasive scrubbing, I think it comes out cleaner after running then when it went in. It does run cooler with it, the proven fact is there are no boiled mineral deposits. For me it is not a waste of money, and it is definitely a time saver. It took longer to get the tools out then it took to put it on, about 3 min. Denny.
  7. +1, with some imagination you can find something to take it's place. If they don't have what you like, go on the net and type in weather seals, go to images, click on something you like, open it up, and click on visit page, it will direct you to someone who sells that product, or something that will work. Or maybe they will point you in the right direction. I have found numerous things that I have been looking for that way. Another way may be to look up hatches and find a manufacture and see if they will sell you a rubber seal. It is out there, you just need to look for it. Good luck, Denny. Denny.
  8. There are boaters, people who have boats, and people who rent boats. The second 2, far out number the first group, and while we are at it, don't leave the fishermen out of the mix. That is why I am thankful to have The Great Lakes all to myself Monday thru Friday. There a lot of benefits to being old and retired. Denny.
  9. Ya, the only ones that are dumber, are the fishermen standing up on their Bass Boats in the middle the mid channel, coming in to the St. Clair River from Lake St. Clair. They get the ride of their lives when the Queen Mary goes through there. Denny.
  10. I found this on iBoats, posted on Aug 2002 I have a Simrek drive shower on my Bravo 3 outdrive. Prior to installing it, the outdrive would tend to turn chalky white after a few weekends of use and a PITA to clean. Since installing the drive shower, the white chalky appearance is gone. Several years ago, I talked to Paul Kermis of Simrek about a drive shower for my Volvo SX outdrive. His response was "for what, Volvo's don't have a high temperature problem". I respect Simrek for their honesty as they could have sold me one. Denny.
  11. I would check into the shoes for the loud banging sound. The sound is made when the front shoe slides into place. If it is real loud, something has more than likely come apart. Can you feel the trailer shake when it does it?
  12. +1 Fix it or get it fixed, but don't hook it up and go down the road. I am known to push the envelope, but not to that extreme. Denny.
  13. Might just be a name change, check the two codes to see if the numbers are the same. Denny.
  14. Ya, we use to say, it cost more, and you get less. Denny.
  15. Can you take pictures of the opening and of the bottom of the other 2 cushions?
  16. What kind of hardware do you need/
  17. Mine comes with an adjustable wedge that is held on with a bolt. It is designed to loch around the hex headed nut. I guess the newer ones are new and improve, and don't require a safety feature.
  18. Old people hate change. I'm still able to get PB to work. However I will start playing with the others. Denny.
  19. I have seen bow riders on the water with so many people on them that there was standing room only. There are boaters, and then there are people who have boats. I think if you are loaded close to capacity, either by weight or volume, you are an accident looking for a place to happen. You can't fix stupid. Denny.
  20. Ok, Thanks.
  21. Go to Harbor Freight, or Auto Zone. Denny.
  22. So you hunt deer in the off boating season?
  23. Restoring a boat is not fun, trust me. Only if it is a labor of love. Bought my girl in June of 92, worked on her all winter, splashed her in early May of 93, after spending 400 hrs restoring her. Owning a Body Shop, helped a lot. Denny.
  24. I'm talking about stress on the unit it's self.
