I had a similar setup on my old boat. One reversible self priming pump and three sacs. I had ball valves on the inputs to all sacs. As said before, you can turn off the valve to one sac as soon as it...

If the boat is 8 feet wide and is placed exactly diagonal in the garage, then the center of the transom will be 4 feet from the corner. So subtract 4 feet and you have 24.28427. Then take off another...

Do you have to jack up the trailer to get it on the dollies? Or can you drive it on? <BR> <BR>I may have to try this. I think I can fit my boat in my garage diagonally, but I don't think I have...

I used to have a system with 3 simers. I put a little binding slime in there before the first use, but certainly not every time. One trick is to mount the pump so that both of the hoses go uphill...

My bow winch strap broke one time also. I didn't know that it broke until I got home from the lake (about a 20 mile tow). The boat had slid about 4 inches back on the trailer. Not quite as far as...

Yeah, I saw that you said it was a 92. I had the same boat (I just sold it). I always thought that the floor was all glass and no wood. I never had any issues with mine so I never had to look...

Doug, your boat sounds a lot like mine with the 3 simers, monster tower, and perfect pass. I'm surprised you needed a new floor. What happened to the old floor. Isn't the entire floor fiberglass?

It pulled fine with about 1000-1200 lbs. unless it was really loaded with people. But it would sometimes struggle after I upgraded all the sacs to about 2500 lbs. It took a while to get out up on...

Well this might be a little too obvious, but... Is it fuel injected or carb? If it is a carb, are you giving it some gas while cranking? On my boat (with carb), if it has been sitting for more than a...

You can take your battery out and take to AutoZone (or other parts store). They can load test your battery and tell you if it good or not.
