Re: Engine Raw water intake strainer

i assume that you're talking about the cover on the outside of the hull. if you mount the cover with the slots facing aft you can get a vacuum created behind the solid portion and cut down on the flow to the engines. the cutout is probably intended to reduce the chance of a vacuum.

Re: New Owner Questions

hi, do you need replacements or just rescreening? ours are bowmars, 20-3/4" X 15-3/4". if you just need screening, it's not hard. you can get screening at most hardware stores. pull the rubber spline out. lay the new screen over the frame. insert the spline in the groove to trap screen. trim excess ...

Re: Transmission, Rear Seal

we've had 2 sets of seals replaced. both times out of water with prop removed. i just looked now and it looks like there is 6" that the prop can move back. that should be enough to split coupling. i guess it depends on what type of puller you need for the coupling in trans. good luck.

Re: Jabsco equivalent impeller for 75hp motor

so after a couple of years use i swapped my first set of impellers with the threaded hubs. the whole process is an order of magnitude easier than with the older impellers. the puller is about $20 but worth its weight in gold.

Re: Transom shower..

sorry but this is one of those "s**ks to be you". yes you will go in head first and get comfortable. get some foam on top of the water heater. ideally, do it on a cool day. sorry, but i think this is as it gets.
