    My Johnson goes up and down!

    New filter/ water seperator, and new filter mount. I will be resealing all of the hose connections before our next try. Carbs cleaned and rebuild kit installed. Tank vent wide open, and it does it on both of the tanks. New fuel pump and new bulb. Prop splines onto shaft. (Lucy! You got some...

    My Johnson goes up and down!

    When I am running the 1984 3 cylinder, 2 stroke Johnson outboard on my 17' Boston Whaler, the engine works OK at low speeds. Once I open it up a bit, the RPMs go up and down, sort of like a surge. I have replaced or rebuilt the fuel system from the tank to the spark plugs, so I don't see what...

    Another old lady

    An old lady got pulled over on the freeway near Massachusetts Ave in Lemon Grove. Officer: "Ma'am, do you know that you were over the speed limit by almost 30 MPH?" Old Lady: "No, I was going the speed limit. See, there it is on that sign!" Officer: "No, ma'am, that is the highway sign. This is...

    Ear Problems

    Did the open water dives down to 50 feet. A OK! I equalize as soon as I go under, and keep ahead of the pressure. The cert dives were at La Jolla Shores and we had a good time. I am looking forward to diving here in south orange county. Thank you for all of your advice!! Happy Hunting!!

    Ear Problems

    In the pool I practiced equalize my way to the bottom, so if I go gradually, I think that I will be OK. I want to be able to cruise along the bottom. Freediving has no problem with The Bends, but ear pressure is no different. Freediving means that I can't pause to equalize for as long. Maybe...

    Ear Problems

    Got a DMV Physical for my class A CDL and asked about scuba, and the doc cleared me for action. I was told "Don't do anything stupid!" and "Bring me some lobster!" Pool dives this weekend, and ocean dives weather permitting. Look out bugs!! -N

    Ear Problems

    I want to learn to scuba dive, but I have had ear problems in the past. In 1984 my brother boxed my ears and popped a hole in my eardrum. It took quite a while to heal, and I asked my doctor (GP) about it a few years ago. He used a pressure gauge and told me that he thought that the hole was...

    Cpt. (needs) Convincing

    Where you go and what you throw kind of dictates what you may catch. I am not likely to get a bag limit of calicos on the 117 and very few marlin along a jetty. Throwing a whole live mackeral probably won't catch me many sculpin, and I dont think that tuna will hit mussel. He needs to have a...

    So if I hold it closer to the camera, it will look bigger? :) I wouldn't want the moderators to ban me because of their "No Chips, No Dips" rule. :( I never thought of weighing it, but it measures a good solid 13! ...Oh, no. Wait, those are centimeters. Sorry. -N.

    Was anyone on the bayrunner? Salvage rights? Giving aid to those in distress is one of the oldest rules of the sea. It is sad that the danger of liability is such a deterrent to doing the right thing. Thanks for saving my boat! -N.

    Life Jackets

    I understand that wearing a PFD on your boat is a good idea, much like wearing a skull bucket on your bike is a good idea. The trade off is usually about comfort vs safety. Setting a good example for the kids also factors in. I know that there are many wise men on this board, (and many...

    Is it illegal to abandon ship?

    Dictionary definitions aside, I believe that a mooring is a permanent arrangement for securing a boat or ship which is left in place. One does not raise the mooring and take it away like an anchor. Avalon has moorings of various sizes with bow and stern lines to prevent swing and maintain...

    The line down the center shows that the photo was removed from a book and taped back together. I always thought that the hood was sewn on at the back. The victim has at least 2 other bleeding wounds in his belly aside from the one that the doctor is holding pressure on. The doc is trying...

    Boston Whaler Owners***I Need Help***

    My bait tank is similar in size to the one in the above picture. It rides at the back, along with the battery and the fuel tank. It is fed by a small bilge pump mounted on the transom. It is removable, but it does slosh a bit. I would love to mount it farther foreward and put a lid on it...

    Color type of paint for a mercruiser engine?

    Surface prep is the other big factor in paint endurance. Clean it all off really well as you reassemble it.

    Color type of paint for a mercruiser engine?

    My point is that the exaust manifolds and other parts of the motor reach higher temps than some paints are set up for. If it's engine paint, then I would guess that it is ready to handle the heat. Stove paint is made to withstand 1100 degrees.

    Proper Sea Anchor / Drogue Set Up
