Hey Shawn,
It been a pleasure to know you on the forum here. I guess there comes a time for everything, as Bill mentioned. Past few years I've slowed down a lot as well and my love for sailing in...

If you had pumped out the fuel tank and cleaned as best you can I'd say you are done there. In the past we'd add some more fuel following pumping, rock the boat, and pump dry again. That said, it's...

Agree with Dave. Something else to consider is continued dirt making it's way into your fuel system. Although you cleaned the tank, new fuel etc it only takes small particles flaking off from the...

Still around.

I'm still around. Just busy as heck. Just helped a guy remove, rebuild and install the A4 in his boat. I gave him every part he needed. Just sent crank bearings, pistons and rods to a machine...

Windshield washer fluid for the head.

I was down to the boat yesterday to check things and ran into a member that has the contract to clean the yacht club. He was winterizing a pump he uses and told me that we should winterize our...

Sounds like you have fuel, spark and cleaned the carb. By cleaning the carb did you remove it and clean the jets. The main jet plugged will stop it from starting. I'd suggest changing that fuel...

Boat hauled, time to winterize.

This morning, myself and two friends hauled 3 boats and parked them for the winter. It was the best season I'd had in 4 years and I logged either close or over 1700 nautical miles. Most of that day...

Hi Dave.

I had to time the boat about a month ago for him. She was in rough shape and so off that she had lots of blow-by in the cabin. She ran much smoother after that.

Hi Al,

Broken Crank Shaft.

A friend broke the crank in his engine I think. It will turn a bit then locks up. Click the starter and it will move a little bit again with the crank handle..not a full revolution and I don't see...

I'd focus on the pump if not having starting issues or water on plugs. That inner seal can fail after prolonged use. Dave mentioned pressure testing the block...do that after the pump, meaning, the...

Hi,
So if I understand correctly, this engine is out of the boat and you just want to change out the reversing gear. If that is the case I did it about a year ago. I had a spare engine with the...
