the list goes on and on
Well, my maintanence has still not gone completely over the edge.
If you need a new battery, Go to Sears and pickup a diehard marine Batt.
Its the way to go!
Just picked up a new Garmin 340C FF/Sounder... Watchin a few GPS systems on ebay. I needed the color sounder cause the gray scale is
impossible to read once it gets dark.
Fixed my Navigation lights, The fuse was removed...Huh... Why would
anyone in their right mind take the fuse out? Now I got lights!
The belts on the engine are my next problem to deal with. One of
them is squelling like a SOB. Figures its the inner belt...
I think one of the pulley's is pitted a bit. I was figuring to wire brush it
and sand it the best I could before putting on the new belt. It was
definately loose which probably didn't help. I can't tell whether the
belt was loose all along or whether the pitting of the pulley was the
catalyst that caused it to wear out. (Probably a little of both).
What are the do's and don't as far as the belts and pulleys go?
With the belts being a problem its been very difficult to burry the
trottle to get the boat to plane out. The trim tabs aren't helping as
much as I'd like either.
There's no fin on the outdrive. Will that help getting it to plane out
quicker? The bow just won't come down. (anyone ever heard of putting
lead weight up front)?
The good thing is, everytime I've been out I've picked up a fish or two.
Big schoolies 26-27s... Very healthy bellies.
