    I think the technology has a long long long way to go. Just because it’s neat does not make it structurally sound. The layers don’t bond very well so the resultant “grain” is fairly weak. I do love that it’s floating in a pool and all the occupants are wearing life preservers:)

    Bought the bags from amazon, used them today sealing up some salmon, worked perfectly, good quality product, thanks!!

    OH FOR PETE'S SAKE............(keeping it family friendly)

    The bad part isn’t the $1000s of dollars, it’s the month/s off the water while your boat sits in a lot somewhere waiting it’s turn Auburn sports and marine schedules work in and out but then a mercruiser I/o isn’t their primary business.

    For me, I use a high end food saver, mine will do 100 consecutive seals without overheating. I have had it for 6 years now, but they don’t make that exact model anymore. It isn’t overly compact but it is easy to get out, use and put away. So we take it with us in the motorhome or wherever. Yup...

    anyone else notice these either under the skin or in the gills? Maybe 1/4” or less in diameter? I have seen a few this year and don’t know what it is, I just scrape them off when cleaning the fish.

    Portable bait pump

    To be correct it needs to fill you tank in 4-8 min 2gal a min would be 16 gal in 8 min, pretty short of the goal. So it may work marginally. 3 gal a min x 8 min = 24 gal so the washdown pump probably works ok.:)

    I like to run at WOT and make sure you get up on step easily and the engine gets within 300 rpm of rated. Of course problems here could be the result of the wrong prop. Conversely, if the prop is too small it will run up to quickly without pushing the boat. I assume this is a sound boat?

    On second thought, maybe I should go change the combo on the gun safe?

    Boat Sinks

    I’m curious, is the offshore bracket open to the bilge in the main hull? Or is it a closed off box? How do you think it sunk? On other similar situations the boat got low enough in the water that the deck scuppers let water into the deck and then enough leaked into the bilge from the deck...

    Boat Sinks

    Here’s a thought They left the access doors off, the wind blew and the waves washed water into the transom which swamped the boat, they lost the plates when the boat turtles so they ran down to the local store and bought something the same size and stuck them in there thinking no one would...

    Boat Sinks

    Agreed it’s not great or for cutwater I have looked at them at the boat show and they are beautiful boats, I find it hard to believe a boat maker for that boat would do a crappy job at anything, course I never bought one ha ha. I still done lolike that drain in the transom/engine well, one leaf...

    Boat Sinks

    Truth, however, someone obviously changed the deck plates out for reasons unknown, and replaced them with unsealable inspection plates, this would seem to let cutwater off the hook. I don’t like what they did there with that stupid little drain or many other things but, whoever changed those...

    Boat Sinks

    Ok, it’s on:) IN the surveyors report it says the deck plates in the pod were non sealable inspection access holes not sealed deck plates which would have been a major screw up by cutwater. But then I noticed that in the surveyors picture they are black plates, yet in the op’s picture of the...

    Boat Sinks

    You have to ask, was this their first big boat? No insurance? Warranty will cover? Did they buy it with cash? I couldn’t help but notice that the aft hatch was open in the pic that shows the steering rod disconnected? What’s up with that? Why did the boat sink? I couldn’t get past all the...
