Re: Running one engine on twin inboard

Savings at hull speed is minor considering drag from the dead running gear and the rudder turned hard to steer the vessel. Running both engines also provides better tracking with counter rotation. You will use more fuel correcting your course possibly covering twice the distance through the water. O...

Re: Great Lakes water levels

And it continues.... "Lake Ontario's water levels are at their highest ever — breaking a record that had stood since 1952 — according to data from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Re: stuck in the boathouse

Lower water levels in the Rideau and Trent-Severn canal systems will eventually help lowering water levels in Lake Ontario, which is controlled by the locks in the St. Lawrence, but with Quebec flooded that is not happening anytime soon. The American's have a lot to say as well (Army Corp of Enginee...

stuck in the boathouse

The highest water level I have ever seen on Lake Ontario leaves me stuck in the boathouse. Now the problem gets worse. The windshield is only 2" from the ceiling. I will need to remove my windshield. Any suggestions on how to dismantle it? Started this evening and found it to be a huge job. Not much...

Re: Project "Tri Fly"

Hi Barrie, Looks like you are progressing well on your project. Question, I plan on refinishing the flybridge teak sole on my F36 and was curious weather the helm seat base nuts would fall down onto my headliner when I remove them or are they secured to the back up board? Also, do you have a good ex...

Re: What is this

Looks a lot like an internal gearbox part from a marine transmission.
