Force by Merc Marine 5 HP...advise needed

I have a 96 Gamefisher 15hp made by Force and Mercury built. I assume that is the engine yall are talking about. I had to order an impeller for mine yesterday. I bought mine from iboats.com. It was $14.00 with shipping. From what I see on mine, the lower unit drops a little then you have to remove a...

Mercury 18 XD carb

I just bought a Mercury 18 XD that wasn't running. I took the carb off to clean it and the butterfly is missing. If anyone has a carb, I would sure be interested in buying it.

Transducer

Its going on a 350S-Map but alot of the other models have the same one. I have looked all over the place and the only place I could find new ones they were 64.95 plus 12.00 shipping. I can buy a 128 for that and have the whole deal. I found one on ebay that still has 5 days left on it that Im watchin.

Transducer

Im looking for a transducer for a Eagle Cuda fish finder. The plug has both the transducer and power wire in one plug. I bought a couple of used finders and one of them didnt come with a transducer. So if any one has a transducer that the head unit went bad let me know please.

16' Quachita Mod by 3 guys with some beer

When I did mine I carpeted the decks and then just screwed the decks down with small headed screws. They hide in the carpet when they sink down. Just fluff the carpet with your hand and you cant see them anymore.

Grandpa's 12ft john boats' rebirth

40 hp Johnson has a crack in a intake runner Help

I got the new powerhead on today and it was a piece of cake. I also changed the impeller and checked it over real good. I took it to the river since the hose was froze up and it turned over a couple times and fired up. Thats a sweet sound. Good water stream and cant wait for it to warm up now so I c...

my new 16 ft. Monark project

How much boat is behind the trailer now? If its not over three feet I would run the metal on the trailer all the way back. Then move your guides back to there. Its early and I cant remember if you said there was an outboard but if there is it needs to be riding on trailer. I run a transom saver on e...

my new 16 ft. Monark project

I would add some to the rear of the trailer. I looks like there is only a foot or so behind the axle. The more you add to the tongue the more tongue weight you get. If you deck the front that will be a concern. Its an awsome tin.

quit smoking?

I quit November 8th of last year. I have actually lost weight because when I would eat something I wanted to smoke. So I would rather skip the snacks than fight that huge craveing. So far so good. I went the the DFA today and that was the worst craveing Ive had since the first month. Is every state ...

1984 Rhyan Craft Update

Man as sharp as that boat is you have to do it clean and right. Everything looks awsome. You dont want some gaudy throwed together deck in it.
