It'll take about an hour or two the first time you do it - maybe 20 minutes the second time.

Take a look at it in your boat, and see how easy it is to get to it - can you slide the packing nut far...

Sounds like a simple workaround similar to what people did for black marks from the BoatBuddy - some kind of covering on the urethane that doesn't leave marks. A lot of people used bunk carpeting...

Gorilla glue works fine in water.

Unfortunately, nothing glues Teak well without good preparation. See this (http://www.wood-database.com/wood-articles/gluing-oily-tropical-hardwoods/) page.

No, probably just that the strut bearing or shaft log is dry. If you're concerned, run the hose on the propshaft at the strut and turn it again - the groaning will probably go away.

Craigslist.

Seriously. Just bought a brand-new Liquid Force Angel 134 with bindings for $150 as a boat board for that weight range. I just won't tell the boys that it's a girl's board.

Any reason to believe that your truck will be happier with this gas than your boat? Or are you gonna have two poorly performing engines after this?

Is this the zerk fitting that injects grease into the rudder box? That's the only one that greases the rudder box, so it's good to replace it if it's bad.

Don't, however, replace the zerks on the...

That's a Teak swim deck; but it looks like it's had a hard life. When sanded down and oiled, they look beautiful. Mine, on the other hand, looks a lot like yours.

I agree with Truckee. They've been here a long time with a good discount; can't ask for it forever.

Mine has worked flawlessly all summer long.

Jumping out of a plane is infinitely more interesting than indoors skydiving. I'd say do it - find a place that does tandem jumps from 10000+.

Wow, it's hard to imagine the strut getting that hot while it's completely surrounded with water.

Did you get a spark when you jumped the solenoid?

Use a voltmeter; check and see if there's 12V on the battery side of the solenoid. If not, that's a simple problem - the other end of the cable...

See how hard the prop is to turn out of the water - if it's really hard with one hand, or takes two hands, you likely need to do an engine/propshaft alignment. It's an afternoon's work, but if it...

I'd say a piece of sisal twine is all you'd need. By creating extra drag at the bottom of the strut, it'll tend to pull the wing back and your body forward, pointing the wing down and moving you...
