Re: !!!&@!! Yamaha 2.5 troubles

Get some starting fluid and shoot it down at the jet, don't run it with it though :help: Seafoam, a bit in the bowl, might clean that jet out too. Or just some plain old carb cleaner. I wouldn't tamper with the jet, too easy to mess them up. Either carry a spare and some tools or see if a larger jet...

Re: Bertram deck and cockpit furniture refurb questions

Oh. Outstanding. leave gaps! I'm sure there are tons of other words of wisdom out there If I keep my ears peeled.

A good fiend of mine is a very talented cabinet and furniture maker and he will be helping me with the furniture but since he has no marine experience I will ...

Since she and the boys have traveled with me when I visit Melbourne (they played, I worked) more than a few times she's always wanted to visit the gulf side of Florida. We...

Using a brad, even stainless, makes a penetration in the wood where water could ingres and if you seal the exterior of the nail head you're creating a low oxygen atmosphere. Stainless steel will corrode in low oxygen environments. If it corrodes then you have a small void. Hot glue is used to tempor...
