    Single to duo props

    I have a single 280 Volvo single prop now and want to swap out for a 270 duo-prop. Are the hole patterns the same? From what I understand they are within a couple of years apart....1982 (280) and 1984 (270). The duo-props are about 287 miles away from me and got a lead on it from a friend...

    1983 25' FARALLON Whaleback pilot house

    We decided to sell her after thoughts of doing a repower a few months ago as the motor is frozen (forgetting to winterize it back then, lesson learned the hard way). Rather than mess around with a repower, we'll put it out there for someone that would like to play with a project boat or if...

    Doggie poo-poo removal into the sewer

    I think this is a great idea (hope the video link works) when we have our crap patrol in the backyard and from our walks. I guess it must be legal to put dog waste into the sewer system which is better than in the landfills. The video shows what the product looks like. It's a large funnel...

    Passport card

    U.S. Passport Card While in most cases, it seems a CA driver's license is valid enough to get thru US customs, either land or sea (but NOT for air travel). I was going to have my passport renewed when the lady at the post office told me to get the "passport card" for only $20 when renewing...

    Stuck engine

    Okay, now, we're working on the electrics (gauges, pumps, etc) over the weekend, got it almost done. We wanted to finally start the engine (GM 350 c.i. circa 1984) after being not used in over a year. I know that we should have "winterized" the engine, but didn't, we figured it'd be fired up...

    1984 GM 350 c.i. V8

    When we purchased the boat a few years ago, but starting to act sluggish and back-firing at times. The carb was re-built about 18 months ago and was okay. So now we're wanting to do the engine "make-over" (the usual plugs and points, etc), but we can't find the timing specs. Anyone got some...

    Rustproofing the oil pan

    Okay, having to replace the oil pan, the old one is leaking again (actually the JB weld is not holding any longer). So besides the freshwater rinse as part of the wash down, what can I do to the oil pan to lessen future problems or at least delay it for extra years, if that's possible...

    Aero misting system

    This is actually meant to be used in a lake, whereby it gets pretty hot in a small bass boat with no coverage. I was trying to gather some ideas on a portable misting system that can be used with a small water pump, probably operated along with the trolling motor battery and a misting type hose...

    Foodsaver and paper towels

    I just got the new Foodsaver V840 model that was linked from Trianglist. In the instructions, it says it's best to pat dry fish or meat with a paper towel, tuck the towel so that it doesn't touch too close to the sealing edge and vacuum seal it all together. It seems the paper towel could act...
