Re: Drain plug help

absolutely, every area that can hold water, put a hole. if if you get the wood good and warm, then you can drill the holes needed, and simply keeping wetting out until the wood won't draw any more water.

Re: Drain plug help

yeah, wet it out, both the hole and the brass, after you scratch it with some 60 grit or so, and put some slightly thickened (ketchup consistency) resin on the brass, and then do your crimp to instll.

Re: splashwell corner CRACKED again!

I know it is pain, but I have seen a lot of finished become unfinished with these pesky cracks at the corners. the only way I have found to fully cure this, is prior to paint or gel, LAY A COUPLE LAYERS OF, SAY, 3 OR 4 OUNCE S-GLASS IN THE DIRECTION OF THE STRESS (PARALLEL TO THE BOAT SIDES) AND A L...

Re: Drain plug help

only thing about using 5200 is that if the bilge ever gets soaked with some gas it can softer, or weake the 5200, and, some metals don't bond worth a darn to 5200. best thing to do is oversize the hole by about 3 sizes, wet it out with epoxy until the wood won't soak anymore, then back-fill with thi...

Re: vector 115 merc

basically, all you do is take the pad, the last 6 feet, or even the last 4 feet, and simply fill it in so that it is 100% square. test the boat out first and gps it. then, don't make any other changes except the pad, and I guarantee you will pick up several mph, and the motor will turn up more. a lo...

Re: vector 115 merc

you don't need to replace that lower. just clean up. more than any lower unit you can buy for that, you could add a low water pick up from somewhere like bob's machine, which would allow you to raise the motor more, but at your speed, even adding a nose cone can slow you down . nose cones tend to no...

Re: vector 115 merc

Best overall combination without getting silly on the money is, if you are typically running this by yourself, raise the motor so that the propshaft is about 1 1/2 - 2 inches below the "pad." Get some bondo and fill in the top two water inlets, so that your bottom holes will be sucking all the water...
