    Sunshine kills my gelcoat

    Mine should stay looking good.
  2. Not sure if this helps but on my boat red/pink is 12V memory red is 12V switched Yellow is ground blue/white amp turn on or power antenna
  3. Yellow on the boat side is ground, yellow on the radio side is, as you already know, battery for memory.

    Needed fuel from boat, piece of hose fell in tank.

    Pulling the tank wouldn't be the best option, that would entail an engine pull at minimum. Maybe pull the sending unit out, located under the floor locker. May be able to get mechanical fingers in there to get it out. That hose sounds like the fuel pickup so without it, the pump won't get any fuel.
  5. Maybe get with Taylor made and see if they can help. http://www.taylormadeproducts.com/contactus.html

    From what I found there is a separate pump this works with. http://www.marineengine.com/parts/mercury-quicksilver/mercury-quicksilver-parts-catalog-01212.htm

    1998 sig 240 waste tank leaking

    West systems epoxy would be good to attach mounts to a plastic tank, maybe even fiberglass your old mounts to it with the epoxy. Don't use fiberglass resin, it gets hot and can melt the plastic. Good choice changing to plastic, if you use the blue fluid it is rough on metal, wreaks havoc on aircraft.
  9. I switched to Linux in 2006, even got my 80 YO mother on it. She loves it that she can upgrade without having to change her peripherals because they are "no longer compatible with this version of windows". Phone calls about computer problems have practically stopped.

    Another member ended up removing the chrome letters and replaced them with a decal and offered the chrome letters to members.

    light use of starting fluid can tell you if fuel or ignition.

    Can't put fuel in tank after a day of boating

    Same here, the deeper I go into my boat, the more I find mud nests. behind the power panel, up in the gunwale, around the engine, in the dash, etc. I believe I have removed them all.

    Should only be one long beep. Unless you have a Volvo, that might be different than mine.
