Outboard Lower Unit Removal

The impellers are working fine. I have good water flow and no overheating problems but, with manufacturing dates of 1999 and 2000 respectively and 400 hours on both, I suspect the water pump impellers are soon to fail. How do you loosen and remove the lower unit from the Yamaha 9.9s? I have removed ...

Re: Condensation on bulkhead forward of fridge

We have not experienced the condensation issue you all are having up here in Virginia, but I did add insulation to our refrigerator just to reduce the run time of the compressor on Wind Seeker.

Compass Error Possible Cause

Ed, Although still not corrected, I did discover a strong magnetic interference in the vicinity of the engine throttle/shift cables. A magnet will stick to them. They are gray colored ones stamped Yamaha, but I suspect they are Morse or some other make. I will attempt to balance the magnetic disturb...
