Re: 1979 F-40 Fuse Panel

If it looks like this, you have circuit breakers. Push them in to reset.

Re: 1989 mid cabin anchor chain

We use a spring clip that goes from the shackle on the line to the shackle on the anchor, leaving a big loop of chain. The chain falls through a hole in the bow pulpit and rests on the deck. This will only work with a relatively short piece of chain and also requires somebody to be on the bow to dep...

Re: cutting off at idle in gear

If your carb is old, you might have an air leak at the shaft bushing. The previous owner of our boat was rebuilding the carbs every year and I fought similar problems to yours.

Like prowlersfish said, it all depends on which batteries you have, how they are wired, and exactly which charger you have. You are not likely to get much specific info on your cushions her...

Re: Want to Buy: F25 or F26 (Maryland area)

Welcome to the site!

We keep our F-36 off the Rhode River and there are a number of other Trojans nearby. I don't remember, but there might have been a F-25 in the last PropTalk magazine. I will keep my eyes open now that I know you are looking.
