Check trans fluid, 1400 hours is probably getting up there if it's never been rebuilt. Is fluid dark or smelling burnt?

The creek is tight, I must say I don't miss that now that I'm dropping in at...

You mean like cavitation when accelerating rapidly or on a sharp turn? FAE shouldn't affect that as the exhaust is introduced behind the prop and by the time you turn around to cross your wake any...

I'd be more worried about thieves stealing a prop than some amps and a head unit. Much greater reward for less time and effort invested and can eyeball a good prop from a distance.

MTBE does the same thing but without being corrosive to many metals, attracting water, causing phase separation, or significantly lowering the BTU content per volume of the final product. When MTBE...

I'd be just as careful checking out an old composite boat as an old wood boat. The reason old wood boats have stringer issues is the foam holds water, they get wet and stay wet. An old composite boat...

Some of the ones mentioned didn't have an IR remote. Got a response from Kenwood that said they don't make any marine head units with IR remoted, hardwired only. Seen several otehrs that would only...

Decent head unit with USB and remote?

My head unit seems to have given up the ghost. It's a Kenwood that was in the boat when I got it a few years ago. Never had a Kenwood (usually Alpine for me) but overall I liked how this one worked,...

Cool boat. My first boat was an '89 Marlin Cobra (I/O). Decent boat, it was rode hard and put away wet so had its issues but served me well for a few years until I got my Supra. Don't see many...

I'm probably in the minority here but I think it's a shame to cover up gel in that good condition with a cheesy wrap. Boats should always be done in gel, wraps are for free cars and advertisements....

I wouldn't expect any problem if it was made to hang from them long term. I believe Correct Craft has always made their boats to be able to hang indefinitely, others like Malibu (I think) have...

I wouldn't let wood stringers turn you away from restoring a boat. All the nicest boats worth restoring have wood stringers. Most composite boats are cookie cutter use 'em 'till they're done,...

Quite likely pulling that much volume from the valve cover breather is a vacuum leak. On a tight engine the PCV valve will pull air, a slight vacuum, from the opposite valve cover. Never seen one...
