    Yes Corky that is exactly what it was. It worked ok the first time I was out. The second time it was worse and the third blew all the oil out. They were all short runs but the rings got worn down on...

    Re: The streak is gone

    When I am testing something or the boat isn't running up to par I always go up river. I was able to float and get some fishing in.

    The streak is gone

    After the long streak with no problems it's over. Totally my fault though. When I got the boat out this year it didn't turn over by hand at first. I rocked the prop a few times and it broke lose. I...

    Re: Almost There finally.

    Re: Almost There finally.

    Now that made me laugh. The two or three strikes in that video were all there was. I don't fix my dents like that. I put the boat on the garage floor and put a bottle jack on the dent then a 4x4 up...

    Re: Rudder stick travel adjustment

    At 45 degrees the boat will circle in place at idle. I've never really looked or paid attention to how far I pull the stick when I need to slide the boat out in an emergency stop.

    Re: more mag troubles

    That's the same problem I had with my original mag. It worked fine when cold but once it got warm it would shut down. It was a fairbanks, I have a slick mag now on for 10 years.
