Re: 32 fly transport

In the search box at the top right, in case you have not already done this, put the word "height" or other word you want to key on. You' may find some useful earlier posts or perhaps the name of another user who has done this before. In the meantime, I will venture a guess that there is no...

Re: Engine Drain Plugs

No water in the block is probably gold standard. We had closed cooling on 318's and simply ran 3 gals of pink or green antifreeze thru the engine - didn't drain it. While it was running thru (with my 3rd/4th hands) fogged the engines and as the last gal of anti- freeze went in we began to fog more h...

Re: Engine, genny, A/C flushing

I believe Groco makes a valve fitting to make hose hookup quick and easy

Re: 32 fly transport

My boat of that vintage also had a 1 1/4" shaft. Every move-the-boat post I've ever seen on the forum over many years involved taking down the FB with the need to carefully mark all loose connecting wires. For one thing, I wouldn't trust an out of date highway info system in any state for good ...

Re: Engine, genny, A/C flushing

Descaling aside for a moment (I never did that so don' t have expertise) - you may want to periodically close the intakes and run fresh water via your dock hose thru all the strainers for a few minutes. That should keep them pretty free from river silt

Re: Over-wintering boat - in water???

A question you may want to look into is what do your neighbors do for winter protection - the pix indicate they have sizeable docks and boats to secure

Re: Over-wintering boat - in water???

Sorry, Rob, I don't think that's an effective anti-freeze technique. A better way to do what you are describing is simply to shut the thru hulls and pour some pink (or green) non toxic anti freeze into the hose. The rest of the hose (and system) is protected by the winterization (pink stuff) process...

After i wrote the note above, I went online to see if there was a current bubbler aeration system as I described. I found one hit with a company apparently out of business and another one for "deiceair" that seems to be current (https://deiceair.ca/bubble-tubing-fine-bubble-linear-diffuser...
