TinBoats.net Box Pass #5

Sorry guys, but I was unable to post pics. My other computer has gone out for repairs and won't be back for awhile. This old computer I'm using right now is so bogged down with spyware that I can barely even get it to work at all...and no photo software on this one. Anyway, the box did arrive on Sat...

lower unit water in oil?

I took the motor back up there and he pulled the lower unit, pressure tested it, and replaced the upper drive shaft seal, which was leaking. It took him about half the day to finish it, but at least he got it done. I haven't had a chence to check it out on the water, but hope to do so within the nex...

TinBoats.net Box Pass #5

Great; I'm ready. I just got Sawdust Farmer's mailing address and it's written down on paper because I've had endless troubles with my computer lately. I have a friend who is a computer geek, so I'm waiting for him to help me out with this machine. Hopefully, I'll still have it working when the box ...

lower unit water in oil?

Thanks for the comments. I called the repair shop and explained what had happened and emailed them this pic. The owner of the shop told me to bring it back in and they would pressure test and re-seal it. The problem is that it's a 300 mile round trip for me to go back up there. He says he might be a...

lower unit water in oil?

I have a 1973 Evinrude 25hp motor that I just got back from the repair shop and took it out for a test run. I'm going to attach a pic of what I saw after I took the boat out of the water and hopefully some of you guys can tell me if I have a problem. Long story short...I took the motor in to the sho...

What would it take to wire up lights

I have recently been working on a wiring project on my boat and, through advice received on this forum, I ordered all of my electrical supplies from www.genuinedealz.com I've been very pleased with the quality of what they've sent me and the price is very reasonable. In addition, shipping is free an...

Range?

I'm certainly no expert on this subject, but I can relate my own experiences. I have a 14 ft with a 25hp Evinrude and 6 gallon tank. I haven't really kept track of mileage or running time while on the water, but I can say that I am able to run that boat for an entire day of fishing, moving substanti...

Taking the Leap. '81 Starcraft Seafarer Conversion

Hahnzookeeper: I've been checking out the photos of your boat and I like the idea of that piece of plywood that is directly behind the bow cap. I have the same boat and would like to create some space for mounting a spotlight up there, so I'm wondering how you attached that to the boat??? I would ap...

transom mounted trolling motor and outboard

Thanks for the help. I just placed my order for a Minn Kota Riptide 55lb thrust transom mount with a 36 inch shaft. This is something I've been planning to add to my boat for a couple of years now and finally got around to doing it. Looking forward to getting a chance to go try it out!

transom mounted trolling motor and outboard

fool4fish: What is the shaft length on the trolling motor in your photo? I'm measuring my transom and outboard height and trying to decide if I should go with a 36 or 42 inch shaft. I like the way yours is situated, so I'm wondering what that shaft length is>

AMMO QUESTION

If you wanted to make the investment, you could purchase some basic reloading equipment and start making your own. The dies are available and you can even get bullet molds to cast your own lead bullets. At $3. per round, you probably won't ever save much money this way, but it could be fun....plus, ...

transom mounted trolling motor and outboard

thanks for your replies! Its seems like I don't have much room for mounting the trolling motor next to the outboard, but I think I can probably make it work somehow. I suppose I'll just buy the motor and then figure it out My boat is a 1972 Starcraft Seafarer and it has a cut-out in the transom, so ...
