    I hate tweekers

    To the tweeker that climbed into my boat in my driveway and unbolted my oil tank, I hope you are the next artificial reef. I went to check the oil before going out in my 18' Parker cc to find I didn't have a tank anymore. Someone had the balls to climb into my boat in my driveway, under the...

    Yamaha Mechanic?

    I'm in need of a good Yamaha mechanic in San Diego to work on my lower unit. It is a 1990 V4 115. I am hoping it's just the dog slipping but am not sure and don't have the time. I have had issues with certain shops in the past and I don't know where to go. She's hung on an 18' Parker CC.

    I have a project in north Carlsbad that I need some metal made up for. I need a custom chase for a chimney. It is a little complex and would probably be best if it was fabbed on-site. PM me if you're interested.

    Anybody have this problem with an MX?

    A bought a mx about three months ago. I've only used it four or five times and the clicker is not fully disengaging. Last weekend I went to cast a bait and the reel made a clickin noise. It seems that the clicker is not fully disengaging. If I push up on the clicker and hold it there it...

    seized steering

    Steering cable is completely seized up on my yamaha 115. Can't get it to budge. I've tried penetrating oil and a dead blow but no luck. I plan on replacing the cable when I get it out. Will heating it up cause any damage to any surrounding parts?

    Offshore YF close to home 9/18

    Left Sunday morning at about 4am. Launched at Glorietta with a friend on my Parker 18cc. The day started out with the bait pump humming and sucking air. A folded sandle wedged between the pump and the hatch fixed that problem. Picked up a nice scoop of bait and headed out in the dark. No...

    How bad is it?

    Was doing the once over while cleaning the boat the other day and noticed a small crack in the side of the cone right where the prop is mounted. It is about an inch and a half long and starts right on the edge of the metal lip behind the prop. I didn't lose any fluid on the lower unit and the...

    Saturday RP and the islands

    I'm headed out on Tuna Patrol's 2520. I swore to myself I wasn't going for a while after Jason, Kevin, and I went for a mogul run on Thursday. The dry ride and the extra seven feet of boat convinced me. We'll try and keep in touch with any other Bloody deckers. We'll be monitering 69 & 72...

    Coronados 4/24

    Made it out to the islands on Thursday. The slicks were worth their weight in gold. Nothing like a flourecent orange pilot house on the eighteen. My friend got soaked but I was dry and warm :D . Made it to the middle grounds around 8:30. No sign of yellows so I decided to try and get my...
