  1. If you can find a phone# call the company that made it and see if it is adjustable, that is where I would start. Denny.
  2. Does yours look like either of these? I went on the internet and entered this on the web search ( Mercuriser 3000 throttle control unit) and these came up. If these are not it, at the top of the page, click on images and scroll down until you see the one that looks like yours, click on it and then click on visit. The page will open up to who posted it. Usually it will be a vendor that has it. Good luck, you are looking for a 20 year part. It is more then likely a reproduced part and may not be built as good as original equipment. I would ask them. You might also check E-bay, or a used boat parts yard, maybe a Mercury dealer will have one lying around in the back room, or ask them if the model was super seeded to a newer model, they do that all the time in the automotive industry. Did you try taking yours apart to see why it is sticking? Denny.
  3. You probably seen our Lake Erie water snake. Lake Erie watersnakes grow to 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 feet in length. They are not venomous. Habitat - In summer, the snakes live on the cliffs, ledges and rocky shorelines of limestone islands and forage in the nearshore waters of Lake Erie. During winter, Lake Erie watersnakes hibernate underground.
  4. Finally after a lot of trial and error, I have found 2 hosting web sites. 1 for photos and one for videos, and with great customer care. The photo is (Postimage) if you just up load you can send your photo. When you close out of their site your photo will be gone. If you give them an E-mail and set up a (free) account, your photo will be saved until you delete it that way you can build a gallery or not. The video is (Vimeo) they have a basic account that is (free) you have to set up an E-mail account, and with it you can up load up to 500MB per week, for ever, and your videos are saved. Next they have a (Plus) account, it is 72deer per year, if you pay by the year, or you can pay one month at a time and it is 12deer per month. With it you get 5TB, per week and a lot of other features. This video took 56MB So all of you that have this, including the guy with that (pretty girl and trailer) that are all dressed up in yellow can show her off again. It feels good to be able to share again. Hopefully I have opened up a couple of doors for some of you. Denny.
  5. That is why I like where I boat, there is nothing in the waters that will eat me.
  6. Not really sure any more. 25 years ago when I bought the boat I set up a deviation chart when I added the GPS, and before all the other goodies. I found a large spot on my local river that was calm and free of traffic. I would run some distance and take the readings of both. Then at 10 degree increments I would repeat the process until I completed my 360 degree circle.Yeah, it took a lot of patience and time, but I was on the water and it was a warm and sunny day. You have my curiosity Dan, I will check it out this summer to see how close it is now, after some 25 years of add-ons. It is comforting to know that you have a back up if you need it. Denny.
  7. I think that I have found the answer to up loading photos to our forum. It is a 3rd party site that does photos only, and it is free.You just need to give them an E-mail and they will send you a password.There is no advertising attached to your account. The name of the web site is: Upload by URL My images Logout Post your images here Get permanent links for Facebook, Twitter, message boards and blogs Click to choose, copy & paste or drag & drop files anywhere By uploading images to our site you agree to the Terms of use.

  8. Congrets, age is not a collection of numbers, it is a collection of memories. Denny.
  9. test Working with this site on being able to up load videos and transfer them to other places
  10. We have some yellow buoys on the Detroit and St. Clair Rivers, and I was told that they are international buoys. Denny.
  11. I could not post with out it. Denny.
  12. Regardless of the the value, what I feel is important to resale value is, to duplicate and copy the original design and color. If you veer from that , no mater how nice it looks, it will look like it was changed and added on. Kind of like the difference between SST's boat and mine, his is of the original design. Not that his or mine is worth more, but because of my adding the arch, (that they never made one for our boat), I have narrowed down the number of people who would buy my boat, that are looking for an original 1985 235 XLC, regardless of condition.
  13. +1 Denny.
  14. Can you post a photo of the damage and show the stern seat to show us the damage in relation to the seat? I help a guy out that has a boat canvas shop, and sometimes the seats are difficult to take apart, not alone getting them out of the boat. Denny.
  15. I went to an electric wench, mainly out of necessity, Too old, and too weak. And mine is an E-Z Roller. Denny
  16. As long as it is a good automotive paint it will hold up. How long ago was it painted, it takes about 30 days at 70 degrees and above for it to totally cross link and totally harden. Under cover in a building or a tarp? Fresh paint needs to breath, I don't like to tarp, if the wind blows, the tarp could leave marks in the paint. And with all the steps that were taken, you don't want to put any marks in it. You can't touch up metallic colors, without being able to tell you did so. She does look pretty, I like the looks of the package that you chose to put on her, very clean looking. Denny.
  17. I like Garmin, and they have a very good tech department. Denny.
  18. Looks good from here, I'm in Ohio, LOL. What paint was it shot in? PPG makes an automotive paint that is called Concept that is very durable and works well on boats, it is 100% urethane. I painted mine in 92 with a PPG product called Durathane, other then the normal wear and tear, it still looks like the day I put it on. Just curious, I did body work for 50 years. Denny.
  19. They are just little ones. What about that big one that your outdrive is stuck in, with only a rubber boot to keep the water out? At least you won't sink. Denny.
  20. Found this web sight. 11 Free Image Hosting Sites for Your Photos - Lifewire › Do More › Web & Search › Best of the Web Upload your images to these sites to share them easily. ... Wondering if there are there any good sites out there made purely for free image hosting? ...

More » This is some of what I have done with it so far. It has a few quirks, but so far it is the best that I have found. Hope this is helpful. Denny. I am trying to add a video at the bottom, this is one of the quirks, it will not load automatically. View My Video
  21. Thanks Dan, it is a shore power cable, one of my projects, was I hard wired shore power to her. I am in the process of getting 3rd party sharing for photos, which looks very promising. the other is for videos, which is a work in progress. I am testing them out on this post, once I get them fool proof, I will open up a new post. I will PM you.
  22. test:
  23. You could say that we have a couple of classics The older ones seen to have an identity all their own. My love affair has been on going since 92. She is spoiled, gets more new toys every year. Have reached the end of the road though, the list of toys is fulfilled, besides there is no place left to put anything.
  24. Ya, the older ones seen to have an identity all their own. My love affair has been on going since 92. She is spoiled, gets more new toys every year. Have reached the end of the road, no place left to put anything.
