Anyone have any suggestions on removing the brass water intake? I'm having trouble breaking it loose because the white glue/sealant.

Carefully cut the bead with a knife and don't pry against the gel coat. If you're not going to reinstall the one that's there, work it loose from the top. If the fitting breaks where the hose attaches, it'll be OK but probably easier form the top. You can also tap it out if you have room to get in there with a mallet (dead blow works best).

The vents on the intake are broken from loading on the trailer.

Ive tryed cutting from the bottom without success. I will try from the top.

Just exactly what I was thinking. More cutting boards anyone??

Another option is to install a Sherwood water strainer. That way if it gets thru it won't get to the engine. Plus if you tore up the intake once loading then there is a good chance you will have the problem again

How much different is the 2003 and 2005 hull and trailer if any?

There is a release agent for the 5200 sealant.You will probably need this to get it loose.

Thanks for the advice. AntiBond 2015 and a sturdy putty knife did the trick on removing the thru hull.

I just finished reading the thread on Ric's 197 trailer. I have an 03-197 and have had the torn carpet and seized brake problem. So it is certainly not an isolated event. Calipers for an 85 Sunbird resolved the brake problem.

Does anyone know if carving the bunk boards resolved the carpet problem?

If by solving the problem you are referring to pushing a particular member over the edge..... Then yes it worked..
