Re: Boat Insurance?

I very well may, just wondering about others experiences in this situation. I was expecting to simply renew - wasn't expecting the delay. 8)

Boat Insurance?

Ok, I've been with Boat US/Geico Marine since 2012. In 2023 I filed a claim. Storm broke one of my lines and my X was banged up against a dock piling, left side.Geico was pretty good, asked for pictures and wrote a check for $6k. Let me know they needed confirmation that repairs were done before the...

Re: Motor choice

Ditto 8) Drifter, Before you go changing too much make sure that you can get service on any engine you are thinking about. There is a lot to be said for an older carbureted engine if that is what the locals use. Electronic (everything) is great when it works but useless if you can't get the parts or...

Re: Blocking my 26M up for first coat of bottom paint

Ok, you're likley going to want more than one coat. I suggest three, alternating white and black so you can ensure good coverage. ;)

Re: Mac 'bump' and silicone

I have good luck with this, use it every year. 8) Liquid Rollers, which is (AFAIK) silicone spray. Works like a charm for me, and I usually drive down a relatively steep hill at my local Erie Canal ramp on the way back to the parking area and gently hit the brakes. Two or three times, and it's snugl...

Re: Service suggestions

Thx, never even thought about the trailer springs. 8) Also..maybe grease the motor pivot points and tilt. Yep - that's important. Grease all the available zirk fittings, and apply a small amount of engine oil on any moving joints that aren't greased. You could check the tilt fluid to ensure it's pro...

Re: Service suggestions

Nice point, I think I replaced my anode about 10 years ago. 8) All seem like good items to replace. 2 years ago I replaced annodes. Learned a bit about annodes. There are different types for salt vs fresh water. Mine looked fine after 10 years, but I replaced them anyway since I had them. Also..mayb...

When is the last time you serviced the cooling impeller? If it's over 5 years, I'd replace it.
