    Refinishing Merc Outdrives

    Sold the boat about 2 years ago, but up to that point they were excellent. The boat was in fresh water for 4-5 months at a time each year.

    Refinishing Merc Outdrives

    Not sure if you have one or two drives to do, but the materials alone cost about $300. Having said that, there was enough primer and paint there to do 5-6 drives. You may be able to purchase smaller quantities. If I recall, the blasting was about $175 for both drives. I provided all of the labor, so I couldn't really say what a shop would charge for this. If I had to guess, there is probably 10-12 hours of work doing both drives. Where are you from? Perhaps we are close enough to work out a deal?

    Very Smart Footless Parrot!

    A guy is browsing in a pet shop, and sees a parrot sitting on a little perch. It doesn't have any feet or legs. The guy says aloud, 'Jeesh, I wonder what happened to this parrot.?' The parrot says, 'I was born this way. I'm a defective parrot.' 'Holy crap,' the guy replies. 'You actually understood and answered me. !' 'I got every word,' says the parrot. 'I happen to be a highly intelligent, and a thoroughly educated bird' 'Oh yeah?' the guy asks. 'Then answer this, how do you hang onto your perch, without any feet.?' 'Well,' the parrot says, 'this is very embarrassing, but since you asked, I wrap my weenie around this wooden bar, like a little hook. You can't see it, because of my feathers.' 'Wow,' says the guy. 'You really can understand, and can speak English, can't you.?' 'Actually, I speak both Spanish and English, and I can converse with reasonable competence on almost any topic, politics, religion, sports, physics, philosophy. I'm especially good at ornithology. You really ought to buy me, I'd be a great companion.' The guy looks at the $200.00 price tag. 'Sorry, but I just can't afford that.' 'Pssssssst,' says the parrot, 'I'm defective, so the truth is, nobody wants me, cause I don't have any feet. You can probably get me for $20, just make the guy an offer.!' The guy offers $20, and walks out with the parrot. Weeks go by. The parrot is sensational. He has a great sense of humor, he's interesting, he's a great pal, he understands everything, he sympathizes, and he's insightful. The guy is delighted. One day the guy comes home from work, and the parrot goes, 'Psssssssssssst,' and motions him over with one wing. 'I don't know if I should tell you this or not, but it's about your wife, and the UPS man.' 'What are you talking about,?' asks the guy. 'When the UPS man delivered a package today, your wife greeted him at the door, in a sheer black nightie.' 'WHAT???' the guy asks incredulously. 'THEN what happened?' 'Well, then the UPS man came into the house, and lifted up her nightie, and began petting her all over,' reported the parrot. 'NO!' he exclaims, 'and she let him.?' 'Yes. Then he continued taking off the nightie, got down on his knees, and began to kiss her all over.' Then the frantic guy demands, 'THEN WHAT HAPPENED.?' DUNNO?!? I got a hard-on, and fell off my perch.!' If this doesn't make you laugh, you're having a really bad day!!

    One question about the GM truck motors... Do they come from the factory with stainless steel head gaskets, or do they need to be replaced with marine head gaskets?

    Is it Normal for the Trailer to Float Away?

    One more thought... Is the trailer frame completely sealed, or does it have holes in it where water can enter and then drain out after pulling it up the ramp?

    Is it Normal for the Trailer to Float Away?

    Have you contacted the trailer manufacturer about this?

    Towing 2x Chaps behind a houseboat?

    "Final option is dont tow at all... shoot ahead of the houseboat drop anchor and have a cold one (or 3) waiting on the houseboat." This one gets my vote.

    Collapsed Shrink wrap HELP

    Sorry to hear about this! Before you do anything else, take a boat load of pictures with a good camera. These pictures will be invaluable when its time to decide who is going to pay to repair this!
  11. http://en.video.sympatico.ca/entertainment/viral-videos/fail/watch/EP_S_expensive-boat-falls-from-cane/622622214001?sort=date&page=1 I'm betting someone got fired over this!

    Loss of engine power

    I'm betting it is starving for fuel, or you got a tank of bad gas. [just bad, nothing to do with E-10] Check out the pickup in the tank, and check the line between the tank and the pump.
