    No, I just torque mine down good and never a problem.
    Besides, every year or two I take mine off to remove the "Bird Nest" of mono twisted up behind it.

    Another sure fire test for others with similar setups as Big D is posting here would be to use a known good meter with an amp clamp on it that reads DC amps. Your better amp clamps read AC and DC,...

    Just a little added protection from the elements that won't harm hose or metal. A corrosion prohibitor will do fine, too.

    I remember feeling like I was going to die when I worked owl shift.
    Grouchy, grumbling, hard to get along with, all kinds of ills.

    Marine vinyl is not really expensive, an upholstery shop could give you a price if you walk in with one of the seats, and you could then compare and make an informed decision.

    Like others have implied, reducing the weigh in limit from 7 to 5 will have zero effect on number of fish caught, only the number "On Display". Perhaps what they are really after is to simplify the...

    Glad you found it.
    In situations like this with small engines, I think "Air - Fire - Fuel".
    When they get all three, they usually run.

    My 1992 Astro 17' Bass Boat is a heavy, fiberglass boat that rides like a Cadillac on the water. Windy, choppy days are not a problem cruising down the river, and when...

    Examine your cable carefully, it may need secured in an area that might be in a bind, like rear corner of boat.

    They didn't list the exact one I went with, but this one is just like it. Momentary up - Off - Momentary Down.
