My question would be, if the bottom is that badly gouged up he must have also hit the prop/running gear. Could have a bent shaft/prop/rudder. I'd walk away unless it's a screaming deal and you can...

Nope, plugs back in and go. I picked mine up in Georgia as well and brought it back to Canada in early March. I did the same thing, pulled the two plugs on the block and the two on the manifolds and...

I'd start with a new battery. Sounds like it died pretty quickly.

If it's the original, you're due for a circulation pump. You can save some money using an automotive pump.
Edit: You posted your pictures while I was writing the above. That pump was definitely due...

Just got back from Anticosti Island. Unfortunately this is the only buck we saw, and I think they train him to stand across from the license office to get everyone excited. Had a great trip, though,...

Tomorrow morning my son and I are heading to Anticosti Island in Quebec. 5000 square miles and estimates range from 120 to 150,000 deer. Human population is about 200. Will post some pics when we get...

Having seven people in it just made it happen sooner. Probably better that it happened there than on a bump on the highway at 60 mph. Nice MacGyvering there by the way.

If you are sure you wired it correctly, it sounds like it could be just the crappy switch.

The thing I like about the sunbrella is that it breathes. I can put the boat away with a wet carpet and when I come back the next weekend it's dry and no mildew.

That ski is exactly the same as mine. I bought mine new in 2000. The first time up it will feel a little squirrely. It wants to be on edge, not flat. Once you get used to it, though, it will change...

I love the HO animals, but I would suggest trying any binding you're interested in on first. Everyone's feet are different. I tried on several different sets before settling on these.

X2 on the local sign shop. I took a picture of the Mastercraft decal on the side of the boat and he matched the font and the color along with the shading.

I would stop at the Canadian side on the way down to register it. They recommend doing that for any expensive equipment you are taking down, like photography equipment, musical instruments, etc.

If your circulating pump is leaking, you have to replace it anyway. I would start there. Mine was running slightly hot (180 or so) when my circulating pump started to leak. Replaced it and voila,...

For the heater, I remove both hoses from the engine lay one in the bilge and blow into the other to clear it out. If you have a compressor, it makes it easier. Then leave the hoses off for the winter.

Mine is 10" x 7" x 8" high and also fits in the recess under the observer seat. I'm not near the boat, but I don't think there's room for 13" long.

Ignition switch is where I would start. (no pun intended) Especially if there is no click. If there's a click, then it's not the switch.
