Crackerbox do you mind sharing some intel. Thanks in advance!!
That's a San Juan island hopping dream. Waayyy more capable and much larger than a 22 C dory, with all the amenities...for the right folks, this could be the perfect vessel.

Did your kit including a float needle valve ? sometimes the tip of those needle valves can get worn out allowing fuel to leak. Ethanol can be another factor causing the needle valve tip to wear. Possibly a head gasket failure causing the original problem

Joking aside, It looks the the float and needle valve are not set correctly.

Man, that sucks! Did you set the floats to spec? I hate to say it, but it may be about time.  :party017:

Tips & Tricks / long overdue repairs and spiff up
« Last post by kevininak on Today at 05:20:34 PM »
I have had my Sea Ranger for a little over 6 years now and finally got to repairing some cosmetic dings and scratches and gave the lower haul a new color. bottom needed a new coat of Sea Hawk and the rub rails will get new caulk tomorrow late morning after everything has had a chance to cure... not a professional job and I was working with some less than desirable humidity to get the project done and get the boat back out on the water. Kings and Cohos are here and I need to fill my freezer!!! next year I am going to tackle above the rub rail.

Last week my boat ran flawless, Sunday it ran like stepping in dog crap. Went to go WOT and the motor bogged down. Continue cruising to see what the motor would do in a 2 mile run and this is what I got:
5mph from 1600 rpm to 2700 rpm, then 8mph from 2700rpm to 3500 rpm, but would not gain anymore speed, anything faster and it wanted to stall.
Starting from 5mph and move the throttle down kind of fast, bogged and wanted to stall. No matter how fast (slow) I was going, giving it more gas seemed to choke it.
Got to the dock and the motor did not want to idle, kept stalling.

Back home and tried to run it at idle, but it would just stall after running for a few seconds.
I would pump the primer bulb and the motor would run, but ruff idle, then stall.
Repeated the process but increased the idle and the motor would run, but not to smooth. Lowered the choke and the motor stalled.
Motor is blowing more exhaust smoke then normal, enough that I needed to take a few steps back.
I checked all fittings and hoses and all were good and tight.
Changed water separator and checked the fuel, no water.
Checked the spark plugs, looked normal not running lean.
Replaced the fuel pump and it was about 30% blocked. (Probably the original problem)
Check fuel screen and it was clear and clean.
Rebuilt all 3 carbs.
Went to run it and watched fuel piss out the lower carb, see video....

Any idea why the fuel is pour out? I rechecked my carbs and didn't see anything missing. The only thing I could think is maybe the float needle is stuck???

Fishing Reports & Tips / Mooching rods
« Last post by Boatboy44 on Today at 04:48:44 PM »
Anyone out there have a favorite mooching rod? i am in the market, simply because sometimes I get bored just dragging balls all over the place, and when I mark fish i want to stop and drop. We forget how much fun it is to land a fish without the added drag of a flasher. Wehn I look at ros on line, all seem to be more suited to downrigger fishing, and its really hard to find a slow action, parabolic rod casting rod. Anyone have any faves? I am partial to Lami, but I guess that doesn't really matter. Thanks in advance!
If you want to fish and not want to get an out of state fishing license, head up to Ocean Beach pier. There's really good fishing off that pier with many different species. I've caught everything from mackerel to leopard sharks to barracudas there, it's a very long pier with good zones from shore to the end. Frozen squid whole or strips is a good choice or make some bait by catching some macs and rig them up with a Carolina rig.
Other than that, Croakers suggestion of sportboats is a great option, especially this time of year .
