If you've got power close by, throw a small fan in the boat under the cover as well.

The battery's a possibility, as is the alternator, but sounds more like bad or corroded connections. I would start with cleaning up all your connections at the battery and alternator. You can also...

At the end of the day, you're responsible for yours own loads, and if something flies out of your vehicle or trailer and causes damage/injuries, you're potentially on the hook for it. Secure them in...

Agree with Eric, those wire rails look great, but are essentially a ladder for young kids. We have an uncle with similar railing, and the first thing the kids do is try to climb the railing.

Yea, we've had one bad tenant in the townhouse we rent, that by the time we got them out of there probably put us down a couple grand. It's pretty ridiculous how many more rights the tenant has than...

For a univeral/budget tower, I'd go with Monster. Stay away from Aerial if you want to get your tower this summer (most folks report terrible customer service and the towers are nothing special).......

Couple years ago, we had a combination of low lake levels and a less than knee deep rock pile from the power loaders at our local lake. To get launched we'd have to float the boat in place off the...

Shouldn't be too bad. Get your angles and dimensions with the boat on the trailer, throw the boat in the water and then do your adjustments/shimming. I would put a wrench on the bunk mount hardware...

You could probably just do a triangular shim between the bunk and posts to get the bunks to match up to the hull.

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...

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,...
