I have a 1984, 15 H.P. Yamaha that runs well. But this past week while I fishing I noticed that the back of the motor, just below the head, got extremly hot. I couldn't keep my hand their longer than 20 seconds. The out spout had water coming out of it, and the lower unit and head was not hot. Is th...

What kind of paint for on the outside of a boat?

Yeah, I just got done doing the inside of the boat with Rustoleum Top side (Battleship Grey) paint and Valspar Enamel Hardner and it turned out great. Yes, sprayed the outside in direct sunlight, and I wasn't shaking the can regularly. Try again tommorrow, I'm thinking of just spraying over the top ...

Scanoe or Gheenoe question

Unless your built like a Russian Bear, and you want to car top it. Stay away from the Scanoe. I had the original Coleman Scanoe for 7 years and another Pelican Scanoe for 5 more. Their versatile, and stable but heavy as hell. I trailered mine. I remember them being about 113 lbs. dry weight. If I we...

What kind of paint for on the outside of a boat?

I'm redoing a 14' Smokercraft and I have just put on 2 coats of spray can, white, Rustoleum Gloss enamel on the outside of this tinny. So far, so good, except that the white paint seems to have glossy areas and not so glossy areas. I would take pictures but it doesn't quite show up well enough. The ...

Trailer Tire Wobble, Tried everything! Please Help!

I switched tires again, and it seemed to be the tire itself. The tires I bought were U.S.A. trail, carlisle, 4 holer (not sure if their quality tires). Also, after further review the Blue and Red pinstripes on the rim, it seemed like the rim was slightly bent. So I took it back to Fleet Farm and exc...

The axle is a welded upside down "U" bar, with the spindles welded into the end. So, no, I can't move axle around.

Trailer Tire Wobble, Tried everything! Please Help!

I purchased a used tin with trailer a few months ago. I noticed on the way home that the trailer tire on the drivers side had a slight wobble, but not the passenger's side. So I bought brand new tires, thinking the rim was bent, still had a slight wobble. O.K. so I buy new bearings and regrease, sti...

Marine grade plywood or high grade plywood for catwalk?

What if I would just put 2 coats of rustoleum top side on it with the anti slip additive?

If I did so, would I still need to epoxy it?

Marine grade plywood or high grade plywood for catwalk?

What would you use for a water proofing agent? I am glad you mentioned that, as I am looking to make a grate system in the back of my tinny for the gas can and battery to sit. I was going to use treated, but I believe I will now use non treated and H2O proof as you mentioned. Just need to know what ...

Marine grade plywood or high grade plywood for catwalk?

The scenario: I am looking to cut a 3/4" 4 x 8 sheet of plywood to go on top of my trailer and under my rollers, to be used as a heavy duty catwalk. I will cut the plywood to the formation of the trailer and bolt it down accordingly. I have also purchased heavy duty outdoor boat carpeting with the p...
