Just dump a big bottle of simple green or similar UK product. Let it slop around in there all day and Presto - Bob's yer uncle, bilge is all freshy-fresh!

I removed one of the brake hoses, which had gotten worn through on the mishap with nearly losing a wheel. I am going to see if Autozone may have one, but I am not very hopeful. I also drained most of the old rusty brake fluid out of the lines. I will do the remaining line when I get my new tires back. I am supposed to get my hubs/brakes in on Thursday so hopefully I will be able to get everything installed on or before Friday in hopes of making it to the lake on Saturday.

My craft is ready for the water... replaced raw water pump and ECT - thought I changed ECT but it was the over heat switch. V-belt did not need removing.

Mike, that motor looks clean enough to eat off of. Can't say the same about that carpet though.
