You do get some odors.
Oh just trying to help prevent a potential hazard.

On my 2000 LTR had one PCV go into the thottle body and the other hose ran to the back of the motor and has a plastic cylinder attached to it that has a slot in it. It was tucked near the back of the motor. I didn't like that so I put a breather vent with a filter on the one that had the hose going to no where. Is this going to cause any issues? Was this tube with the plastic cylinder supposed to go to something? Here is a pic of the tube that I was mentioning. I have to believe that having a filter breather vent is better that having unfiltered air to be able to enter the valve area.

I believe this was supposed to clip to the air filter so it could be drawn into the mouth of the throttle body.

Does yours connect to the air filter? If so could you get a picture? I replaced my air filter last year because the plastic around the filter disintegrated. Here is a picture of what I have for a filter now. BTW, I'm shampooing the carpet today.

I replaced the old worn out POS Reliable swing tongue actuator with the new swing tongue and actuator from UFP.

When I bought the boat I found a worn through spot on the brake hose for the swing tongue. I protected it from further wear with split loom. Now was a perfect time to replace that hose as well.

Finished bleeding the brakes right when the rain started... again.

I guess I shouldn't complain about all the rain, but it's keeping us from playing on the lake. Compared to last year when we had very little rain... that was keeping us from us from playing on the lake.

Had a prop strike first day out this year, while she was laid up, I decided to change the carpet out.

It was actually easier to do than I thought, aside from creating a toxic mess getting rid of the old spray glue residue. I think it came out really well in the end.
