    I am a computer tech by trade. I like working with my hands ether building or fixing things. Into R.C. planes, woodworking but not my strong point.

    I love boating and going to new places by boat. In some cases it been a fun and a learning curve. At times living on the boat up to a week on vac.

    How would you address this leak?

    If it was me........... I would pull the boat A.S.A.P. and put it on the hard. Than go over the hull to see where the water is coming from. You might even want to have very good glass guy look at it too. If your where it gets under 32 degrees and that freezes, you will have more damage. Plus it going to take time to dry, unless you start working on it and its open to the air. You don't want more damage around the motor mounts. If it is from the swim platform, than is from the poles that support it. I mean the bolts and you can take them apart and with a little fast cure 4000 resolve your problem. I would not start drilling holes, but you need to find out where the water is coming in. Maybe a thru-hull for A.C.? Then decide, how to approach the problem.

    What fire boy p/n for replacement on '08 264 Sunesta?

    Thats because the other has been discontinued. I would just do the math to the square footage of your engine compartment. Than pick the next size up to be on the safe side. Remember, thats how there sized, by sq. footage. https://www.defender.com/category.jsp?name=fixed-systems&path=-1|135|2290089&id=2290091

    Rusting Starter - with no high water event

    Yep! Could be. But the past owner could have not put the plug in and the water came up. We don't know.

    I don't think that scum line was from the boat moving foward and the water running back. That water level was high for a long period for that to happen. If the boat was on a trailer, the plug in. Depending how the pump is wired, rain water could have gotten into the starter.

    Towing one boat with another

    Coming from the Cape Code canal going home to Boston. We came across this diver waving his flag around Plymouth. About 3 miles off shore, maybe more. We stopped and he was in a 14 Al boat with a 5hp motor. He said his engine would not start and asked is we would tow him toward the beach as far as we could. I said "No, not knowing the shoreline. There could be rocks" My wife tossed him a line and I dropped into gear doing headway. My wife thought he tried the line off. He was holding it so she yelled at him to tie it off. NOW he is my problem!!! I asked him bunch of questions, NO cell phone, no VHF and no ores. I wanted to call Seatow, and he said "I don't have my wallet." Who would you like me to call? He argued to be brought into the beach and I refused. Two reasons, not knowing the shore line and and leaving him say a half mile off shore with nothing to get him in. I called the Harbor Master on the VHF to take him from us and he got mad. Saying that they will bring him into the harbor. My wife said, look you have no phone, no cell, no money and no ores. Your not having a good day and we are not leaving you out here. Doing headway, I headed toward the Harbor where the Harbor Master took him from me. So now they came off of me and onto them. Really, he argued with us for 20 mins to not have the Harbor Master come out. As my wife told him, what happens if we hit rocks? Are you going to pay? What happens if we take on water? You put yourself in this situation, and we (her and I) need to get you out of it the safest way.

    Solid core or foam core hull under the water line?

    I thru-hull would be better. If your going to spend $$$. I would look at the Garmins Black Box units with Side and Clear View. Upgrading the transducer alone is not going to do much for you.
