Re: Displaying Engine Gauges on Chartplotter

I am too old school for this, however it is a great example of how we can bring our boats into the 21st century.

Was at the Ft Lauderdale Boat Show this weekend

Most new boats are going in this direction - even the outboards !

Can the cracks be covered if you slip a new hose on further ? If so just drill a small hole at the end of the cracks to stop them cracking further clean and fill with epoxy and then put the hose on to cover the repaired area.Just an idea.

Re: Dry-docked

absent any water, you'll quickly burn up your impellers

my system is plumbed to do a freshwater flush from a garden hose using quick disconnects.

I do this for both engines & genny when I put her on the lift.
