    How to deal with my bottom paint

    yes easy off, 3m pads, and pressure washer. use the original easy off, it works the best. also best to attack it in waves. it will not all come off with one application. do it, and then wait a couple weeks and hit it again.

    Stern Drive Flushing Tank

    my wife uses the blue plastic drums cut in half for the horses water. most of them tend to curl up and get out of round over time. i'd suggest making a simple plug to go in the open end out of wood to help keep its shape. good luck!

    Helium Gas Discounts for BD Members!

    well since helium is not a greenhouse gas, i suspect its release into the atmosphere will only dilute the affects of true greenhouse gasses, lowering the earths temperature, along with sea temperature, resulting in albacore moving in closer. so you should thank all those blue fin fisherman!:D

    changing axle types will likely lower ride height a bit, maybe a inch or 2 (hard to tell from here). fenders may have to raised to account for this. also with out the drop axle your boats keel may be a problem. your trailer as built allows for the widest range of use by different boats.
