Yup, had to have mine rewelded.

It's a poor design. The poles are long, heavy, and unsupported on the top end. That means that they vibrate back and forth as you're driving down the highway, and...

I add about a 2' hose to mine; the standard drain hose makes it to the transom, but no further. With the extension, I drain directly into a 1-gallon Rotella container sitting on the ground behind...

I'd use 4200 - it's a lot more adhesive that Silicone, but not as strong as 5200. You're clamping the joint with bolts, so you don't really need the strength of 5200. No sense in making your life...

Believe me, when you crank the engine they'll all line up nicely.

As Wake Faller noted, there was a big hull change for the Maristars in '98. They went from an integrated swim platform to a teak swim platform - which had the effect of increasing the boat size.

I'll say that I used mine most of last summer, worked smooth as a baby's bottom. It was a great upgrade for my trailer.

I believe that what you're referring to as the "overflow" is really intended as the gas tank vent. Under normal circumstances, it's simply a tube that goes into the top of the tank - if pressure...

Take some pictures; your descriptions aren't good enough to understand what's going on.

uh, no.

There may be an audible gear whine from the transmission, but nothing that could be described as a "squeal". Are you doing this in the water, or out?

I agree with you - but with all that noise, how could you possibly hear if the transmission sounds like it's full of rocks, or the flex plate is banging, or if there's lifter noise? What could you...
