Re: Msd ignition

MSD ignition is good stuff. Use a marine dizzy in my 502 Ford w/ a 6AL box and a dizzy and box on my CJ-5. Distributor is similar to Ford Duraspark. If you need a reverse rotation you may be out of luck. They don't do that for GM anyway. ( mechanical advance can't be reversed) Simple to work on and ...

Re: F-32, Where to source hoses

1-1/4" from strainer/seacock to sea pump. From sea pump to trans cooler on mine is 1/1-4" also but a molded Mercruiser hose. See no reason you couldn't do it all with bulk hose, just may need a bit more for the radius.

Re: F-32, Where to source hoses

Many places sell it online. Many want to sell a minimum length as well. I believe I bought 1-1/4 hose from West Marine. Not the cheapest but they would sell by the foot. Tried to buy it from my marina. They said they would have to order it??? What???? I can do that!

Oh and yes, he is a boater. Just unchartered waters. He has Florida experience. Just no NE Coastal experience that I know of.

East Coast Boaters

Have a friend that recently bought a Bestway LaBelle in Fair Haven Massachusetts. (I think) He wants to move it to FL Early January. Is that even possible or reasonable? No its not me. I'll stick with my F-32 on the Mississippi! His safety is my concern. I know nothing about coastal boating. Sloughs...

Re: BROKEN SEA COCK HANDLE

If it is a Groco SV series, I think they are just 3/8-16 threaded bronze. Maybe a 3" x 3/8-16 stainless or brass bolt will get you by. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Re: Winter cover support F-32

Thanks! That confirms my plan. It is all being built out of 2x4 and not using the railings as support. Largest span between "trusses" will be 36".

Winter cover support F-32

My marina suddenly got a bit too greedy for inside storage this year. I have a new Fisher Canvas cover. Wondering if anyone has any good pictures of how they support their covers?? The Fisher covers are very heavy which is good and bad. Just looking for tips.
Thanks!

Re: Where's my fresh water pump?

Thanks. Can confirm it is not there. Probably removed when the washdown pump was added. The washdown is 4 GPM and I think its a little strong for the sinks and head. I'll probably be making this my next project. There is a pump under the galley sink. Im thinking its the shower drain. Is that on-dem...
