Re: Beginner Drones

First 10ish hours of flight time should be in your own back yard or maybe church parking lot or public land here in WI. No noobie should be flying a mile out or even 1/2 mile and not over say 100ish feet high. Your neighbor had no respect or training in gun safety and no business shooting at a flyin...

Re: Beginner Drones

For a starter I'd go as inexpensive as u can.. 50+to 75tops. You are going to crash so a soft and not very fast one will make it easier on your wallet. You won't believe how many dangers are around your yard, friends and neighbors houses, cats dogs squirrels, sun blindings, high tree oopsie landings...

Dry Carbs?

Ive read something on this somewhere but can't find it. Should fuel be left in carburetors during winter or longer storage. Some say yes, some say no. Anyone have some proof by maybe a manufacturer or gasoline producer. While we're at it what about fuel tanks. Keep it full with plenty of Stabil or S...

Re: Double omc fuel hose

What you have to remember here is that none of the engines that ran on a pressure tank were very big engines. Secondly the tank is a "pressure tank" so the small diameter hose is carrying pressurized fuel to the engine. Makes sense to me now! THANKS. Now to see who has a 20 ft piece!! '98 Lund Expl...

Re: Double omc fuel hose

Thanks, Johnny! Good to see you on here again! A tip for installation of the above hose. Run a drill bit down the first inch or so of hose prior to installing it. The newer hose seem to be a bit undersized. Blow or flush out the hose prior to installation. I'm hoping I'm wrong but I would have swor...

Double omc fuel hose

Does anyone have a source for the omc pressurized fuel tank dual line hose. I've run into lots of " oh I may have a ft or 2 left somewhere or gee I think we quit stocking that stuff 25 years ago."

Re: Coating other than carpet for deck?

All of the jon boats and semi v's I see decked are finished with indoor outdoor carpet. The end result looks great, but I was wondering what other coatings have been used on them? The latest and greatest seems to be spray on bedliner material. My Lund came with a linoleum style rubbery covering on ...

Transducer mounting

I'd like to mount something to the back of my transom to mount transducers to without more mounting holes thru the aluminum. I thought I once saw a post that talked about using kitchen cutting board material (plastic) but none are thick enough. Suggestions for material to use and methods of attachme...

Re: Removing cap on trailer bearings

have one that I have had for 40 years so I do not know whether local outlets still stock them but they are great for the job they are made to do which is remove the dust cap from the hubs. Also used to install and remove wheel balancing weights. '98 Lund Explorer w/ 50hp Merc 4c (Yamaha) carburetore...
