Is it the throttle itself or what it's mounted to that's broken? If it's the throttle itself, check the brand (likely Teleflex), and contact them to see if just that piece is replaceable on the...

Personally, I don't see a big need for easy to remove take-offs - just loop onto the section your using and either let the rest hang, or coil it up and hang it off the tower - no chance of losing...

I don't know that I've seen an F2 that hasn't failed in one way or another. You're better off with a regular round jack, then replace the plastic wheel with a urethane coated wheel with greasable...

Another problem with this method, is that lots of places have watering bans, where you can only water on odd or even days, so daily isn't an option. Run-times just depend on if you have a sprayhead...

Have you had any storms lately? Irrigation controller's are pretty easy to get smoked out by lightning if you get a strike anywhere out in your yard (travels up the valve wiring). Take a good sniff...

I love the balance bikes. We've had both our boys on the Strider brand ones (can find them used often) since they were one. I personally like the Striders as the seats can go super low, and the...

This was during my Sunday morning coffee waiting for the wife to wake up after a 2 a.m. night with the cousins. Got some barefoot, boarding, and slalom all in before the rest of the lake got moving....

Didn't someone on here chop a few inches off the nose to get under some restrictions?

I'm not sure on those numbers you got or even what setting you had your meter on, but if you were to meter the socket with the switch on, I would assume you should have 12 volts with the switch on. ...

Yes the upper's on backwards. It may or may not be an easy fix though. If the front/back legs of the upper are the same width, then it should swap easily, but if they're different widths, the...

When you do the steering cable, keep in mind, the cable may have one end that's bigger, and if the hole in the floor between the helm and bilge is pretty small, you might only be able to pull the...

We've had the neoprene HO that was used for both our boys (orange one above) which worked/works pretty well. If I had to do it again though, I'd get a nylon one for when they're an infant so that...

I'd say black with tan inserts to match up the floor. I think you've got the right amount of blue already. I've got no photo-shop skills, so can't help you there.

Just nice and steady on the start. Hold the throttle lower if you tend to hammer it. Try not to overshoot the speed if you can - as one, it's terrifying for the newb, and two when you back off the...

What they ^^ said. Once you get used to it though, you'll find work-arounds and also be able to use it to your advantage, especially docking on the starboard.

Some owners are delusional. I wondered if it wasn't on consignment. Midwest won't typically take a trade-in that they can't unload pretty quickly, so that makes a lot more sense.

Price seems a bit high to me considering a carb'd motor, closed bow, and a tower you can't rely on not to break. Plus the gel looks pretty oxidized in the zoomed in pictures. But it's at Midwest,...

Bummer. I've got a friend that does the same thing with an old nautique he has, and hasn't had any issues yet. It'd probably work if you added some reinforcement to the prop guard to beef it up.
