tube towing for beginners

try to find a grumpy old codger fishing all by himself and
buzz by him as close as you can with everyone screaming and yelling.
try to make as big of wakes as you can going back and forth.
oh - and have your stereo on full blast too. Tons of Fun for everyone.

How to make water pump stream more visible

I know I've been out for a spell, but, still check in every now and then. here is what I did with the plastic hose ran up to the driver's side: very convenient to observe the pressure as well as test the temp with your hand. and, when running the motor in a bucket, you will always forget that water ...

Coosa board transom 1 sheet or 2

I haven't checked, but there may be some tutorial videos on YouTube. once primed and painted, Coosa Board will hold any top surface such as carpet, vinyl coverings, etc. key word is PRIMED and PAINTED.... I have had a stack of maybe a dozen 2x2' pieces in the back of my shed for maybe 15 years..... ...

Coosa board transom 1 sheet or 2

Coosa board comes in different thicknesses. plus - it is unfair to run a poll on this material as probably 99% of the members here have never heard of it, much less used it. you need to be more specific as to gluing two pieces together. the Coosa Board distributor, Boat Outfitters, is only a few mil...

Transom is corroded

my pleasure - no problem at all. we went to the South Pier and brought home a half dozen mangrove snapper. threw back about 10 gallons of bait stealers !!! BTW: this is why I was a little lightheaded and fuzzy visioned while looking at all that CORROSION !! https://www.forum.tinboats.net/viewtopic.p...

Painting problem..Johnny and anyone else, too, please.

to all readers - - - - when I say: quick wipe with acetone or lacquer thinner. I mean QUICK!! - don't dilly dally around. hot solvents such as acetone, lacquer thinner, denatured alcohol, etc are very aggressive and will start to lift, bubble, tunnel and mess up any underlying finish. mineral spirit...

Star Board for decking material?

:WELCOME: I saw a 3ft x 3ft x 3/4" piece of star board in my local Big Box Store and I was very surprised at how heavy it was. there is no way I would recommend that material for flooring or large projects on a small boat. on the subject of "slippery" - - - remember that you will have small kids in ...

Painting problem..Johnny and anyone else, too, please.

Rich - in your sample photo, with the affected area enlarged, I don't see a primer. so, apparently the P/O just sprayed some paint over the hull for cosmetics and to get it ready to sell without the proper (time consuming) prep. (like a lot of people do with outboards just to spruce it up for a bett...

Painting problem..Johnny and anyone else, too, please.

he didn't properly prepare the original olive drab Lowe Paint. yes, that looks obvious. I am pretty sure you have the skill set to do it correctly. just keep the spray paint on hand as it looks like this could be an on-going issue. you know the tune - - - round and round she goes - where she stops,...
