Dunno about November boating, but I love your user name and wish I'd thought to use it.

I used 10% ethanol gas in my boats for the last 18+ years (I stopped at start of this season) with no issues at all. I filled the tanks and added blue Stabil for Winter, otherwise I did nothing...

The reason Yamahas are popular in the Caribbean has a lot to do with parts availability. Yamaha has an excellent network of service centers around the world and their marine products are popular...

Do you live by the shore either on Winnipesaukee, the gulf coast, or both?

That's unfortunate. Glad it has not been an issue where I go. I doubt it's urine that's caused it though.

That's a real bummer. I'd try taking it apart and see what's really broken. Might not need that many special tools to fix it. They aren't terribly complicated.

Pee in a backyard pool would not bother me at all, but then I've had sushi in Mexico, so I'm probably not typical when it comes to germ worries.

Fish, birds, otters, turtles, beavers, muskrats,...

If you do the math, you'll discover that worrying about urine there is absurd. If you count only the water that is over the sandbar, about 4 million gallons, and assume 400 people (4 people per boat...

I rode a Sea Doo 300HP machine (not sure what model) quite a few times this season. The power is awesome and I'd buy one of those if I were in the market. I was also very impressed with the brakes...

If there was any sign of water in the old gas, I bet the check valve ball is rusted and sticking in place.

If you are looking at stern drive boats, expect a massive discount on one that was kept in salt water. Stern drives and salt water are a horrible combination, IMO, unless the boat is trailer or rack...

It's either a clogged vent on the fuel tank or a clog blocking fuel from flowing from the pickup in the tank to the bulb. The clog cannot up downstream of the bulb.

Assuming it's not a clogged...

My first boat (a poorly made and poorly maintained "bargain") taught me to buy nothing but well-maintained older cream puffs. My fourth boat is my third cream puff and it's been great.

My guess is that that marina never wants to see your boat again and are perfectly happy to eat the cost of the unnecessary fuel pump. They also have no desire to remove it since it is of no real...

As far as I know, the charging system on that engine is unregulated, so 16 volts is probably normal if the battery is charged up fully. It will be a lot lower if the battery is discharged. If you are...

Not even close. The next thing that comes up just means you get to learn something else and maybe get to (justifiably) buy more tools. It gets easier and easier the more you do it.

I have been following Searching for C-Shels for a long time, but I must say that we picked the Tollycraft 44/45 as our next boat before we knew about C-Shels. Sheldon and I communicate frequently and...
