If your vent line is attached snugly, the water in the bow area/drivers feet could be a broken heater core (if the boat has a heater). When they crack they leak water, and they're typically up near...

Seems fine to me if the credit's enough to get you into the newer model year or a comparable boot.

Our 06 MC used a paddle-wheel only, and I'm pretty sure the 05's did as well, so I doubt there's a pitot to dig junk out of. Does you PP run off the paddlewheel, or has it been upgraded to GPS. If...

Wipe-down and dry after each use is the most important for us (inside and out). Waxed gel will be 10-times easier to wipe down each time than unwaxed. Any of the different company's (Meguars, Boat...

I was just throwing it out there as an option that I've seen a couple people take. Crossover-wise, I'd say one of the better V drives was the Sanger V210 (drives and handles more like a DD than any...

I've seen people in your situation (given the dock space/storage capability) just go with 2 boats. Get a V for your surfing/boarding, and an old slalom tractor (CC 196, MC 190/197 or a host of...

With the diameter of that hose, there's no way it would bend a small enough radius to constrict someone's neck. So there's a chance you could tangle up in it but not of getting choked out. It's the...

I had never heard of an "insanity" pylon, so looked it up. It's a free-standing three-strap extended pylon where 2 straps go to the rear and one to the bow-eye for i/o's and such. I'm guessing he's...

If neither is damaged, I would just sell the 497, and buy the one you want. Use the 516 for your spare then. I can't imagine the cost difference would be much when compared to reworking two props,...

Looks good so far. I believe what Joe was saying about a 'doubler' is a backing plate on the inside of the hull, especially for the three bolts that are closest to the side which will see a lot of...

Most likely the shaft seal if it wasn't checked and adjusted on the water with the boat in gear (assuming its a traditional seal with packing). Should just be a few drips a minute while in gear. ...

When my cover got modified for the tower they just put in a ring and a carabiner-like clip at the tower on each side of the boat. They then added a section of cover that velcros up between the tower...

Are you talking about between the tower and deck, or underneath the deck? I'd be surprised if there wasn't some kind of reinforcement underneath. If you're talking above the deck, I've only seen it...

The 176 is one of the smallest inboards you'll find, and probably one of the only ones you'd be able to fit a vehicle next to. Any typical 20 footer would have to go in diagonal or tongue first and...

It just depends what you're measuring speed with, and what its relative to . If you're measuring 25 mph with GPS, that's how fast you're going from point a to b, regardless of the current. The...

Is the analog speedo dumping to 0 too? As I recall, 05 would have fed both off the paddle-wheel. If you're losing both, you've likely got an issue with the paddle wheel unit itself (which are super...

For me, if I start showing any markings/wear below the base of my fingers, it usually means I'm over-gripping the handle. Typically, the handle should be out in your fingers, and not rolled up in...

If you've got any glass materials sitting around, that may stiffen it up to be usable if you glassed one or both sides. Otherwise, plywood would definitely be a preferable route to osb.
