  1. I would just use a non-skid cleaner on the cockpit area. It's a non-skid surface under the carpeting.
  2. If you heat up the nuts you'll need to replace them. The heat will probably melt the locking rubber inside the nut. If they are that hard to remove I would replace the nuts anyway.
  3. Probably have to have it made at your local canvas shop.
  4. Had a simular issue on my Volvo drive. It wound up being a leaking upper seal. When the mechanic pulled the seal you could see where the edge of the seal was rolled a little on one spot when installed at the factory allowing gear lube to pass into the boat. I had a leaking lower seal from picking up some fishing line so when I had that replaced I had the mechanic look at the upper seal. Didn't go back to Volvo for the upper seal because it was only a few more bucks. Can't blame Volvo for fishing line on the lower side. Seal - cheap Labor - not so cheap
  5. Mine is on top of the lower unit. The nut on the top is a dip stick.
  6. app - NOAA Buoy Reports
  7. I can already hear the dealer "boats are made to get wet." Just no pride in their businesses anymore - just profit minded.
  8. Only once years ago. Bought a cap and rotor, first time out both fouled out and melted. Never again. Good thing I kept the old OEM parts on board as spares just in case. Others seemed to have better luck.
  9. I have heard of tomato juice not sauce.
  10. Maybe poor ground/bonding between trailer and truck?
  11. Also have to make sure the unit is compatible with your engne set up for the engine stats. I hear merc's are easier to set up than Volvo's.
  12. Must be global warming. It affects the gravitational pull of the earth to pull stronger. I used to be able to dunk a basketball, but no longer. At least that's the story I'm sticking to.
  13. Took mine apart, cleaned and oiled and it worked fine again. I guess I got lucky.
  14. Don't tighten the nuts too tight when you put it back on. Maybe the reason they broke off again. (I learned the hard way)
