I like to use polyurethane Gorilla Glue for that purpose.


Ipe or Teak dowels > fiberglass Cloth and Resin > Polyester filler like West Systems brand from Westmarine > Then Gelcoat.

I have a Racor/Parker on my C-Dory. I am thinking of going to the Yamaha one similar to the pictured one on the SE though. An easy once a year change and rock solid.

Mine is an 06 90hp Etec on the C-Dory. The motor had about 75 hours on it when I got it. Ran it for a couple of years and then I ran it on the hose to winterize it  and notice black rubber around the intake. That prompted me to immeadiately have it changed. It was not in near as nice of shape as yours. I doubt it had been changed prior. Glad I did it.  Should be good a good while. Good for you but yeah, it would extend the interval a couple of years based on your usage and how that one looks.  :smile1:

usually sudden failure is electrical.  an inline fuse or kill switch , or ignition box. you need to check and see if you have spark at the plugs. if it ran out of fuel there would have been some rough idle or erratic running before it died, and once you had the primer bulb pumped back up it should have tried to start. even with a fuel pump failure they will pop and act like they are going to start with pressure in the primer bulb.

Tips & Tricks / EZ Steer Installation
« Last post by dirty_bird on Today at 08:42:18 PM »
This is on a 140 HP Suzuki main to a 9.9 EFI Suzuki kicker. A couple of things to remember if you install this or something similar. You will have to bend the brackets a lot to get the correct fit. The full thread stainless bolts on the main bracket came with  nylock nuts and no anti- seize. I sell this type of stuff and know you should use anti- seize with nylocks. I was in a hurry to get it done (opening day is tomorrow and didn’t have any) so went for it. Galled bad and was unable to tighten or loosen so had to break them off. Other than that really like the installation. Tried it outside and seems to work really well. We’ll see how it does tomorrow. These pictures are before I cut about 10” of the hose clamp band off. Use a drill with a 5/16” nut driver to speed tightening these up. I think I will really like this.

On wake board boats with towers they use a shop vac I think to pull through twine/string then tie off the wires and pull them through.

Arima Life / New motor mounting holes. Filling old ones.
« Last post by amazing grace on Today at 08:38:31 PM »
I am thinking ahead a bit. Have not worked out details yet. My old Merc is off and the new Yamaha F70 is wider I am told so the old holes with not work. 

Not sure if the shop rigging the new motor would fill the holes and part of the new install?

Wood dowles with 5200 and put gelcoat over them after they cure?


Just looking for thoughts and advice guys. Thx.
