Yes. Also, it must be stable enough to handle swerves, curves, dips and bumps.
The reason to be concerned about stability is not just vehicle size and suspension. There is a less-known failure...

Hi, Vanamp. Here is my take.
Please consider how your life is about to change with children on the way and with a second vehicle coming into use. How likely is it that the second vehicle will...

Yes. The only place that you should be towing that trailer is directly to a repair shop.

I wish that I had known what was happening back when I started getting early symptoms back in 2009...

The engine problem continued until I detached the FAE to drain the water.
I sure as hell wasn't panicking. I knew exactly what I was doing. We've had a couple of situations with non-attentive...

I wish that it were. Unfortunately, I did encounter this failure while trying to do an emergency move to save a fallen rider from being run over by another boat. I did get pretty much in his path,...

One other thing for the driver to keep in mind with an FAE: there are no flaps. If you do an emergency stop, you could hydrolock the engine and wreck it.
I did such a manoeuver shortly after...

I have one on my boat. It does help immensely with exhaust fumes. I personally would not surf without the FAE on a boat with no catalytic converter.
I did not get the expected noise reduction in...

Always. Clearly the risks due directly to propeller contact are far lower with an inboard and swim platform than OB and IO boats, but it's just not worth the risk of an unintended action.
Thanks for posting this. This choice would have saved me a time and expense earlier this year when an intake got clogged.

Check engine temperature. Going much above 180 degrees will trip limp mode. This happened to me this year due to a clogged cooling water intake.
I would also re-seat (unplug and plug in) every...
Yes, exactly. I imagine an SC rep asking a moderator to delete this thread. It's bad for Moomba's business. :-)
Actually, it did get me thinking about the changes that I almost made this year. ...

Check the engine compartment and transmission compartment (and pull up the back section of flooring over the fuel tank if needed) to see if there is any interaction between the steering cable/linkage...

I got this jumbo wrench set at the end of last season. I plan to cut the 2" and 1-7/8" ones for use on the prop shaft.

I finally got back on the water today. The boat was unfortunately exposed to rain throughout the first three weeks of August, but I got it back to my own marina a week ago and threw the cover over...
I know how you feel. My starter began failing on the last long weekend (1st Monday in August here in Ontario). It had different symptoms though. It wouldn't disengage fast enough. I wish I could...
That would be in order to preserve the relationship and the boat/trailer/truck.
That's not a joke. My GF can drive my truck or boat, forward, in easy conditions, if absolutely needed. That's...

Interesting... this summer, my marina cut back on staff and stopped offering storage and launching service in the boat barn because it takes them away from the desk on busy weekend days. My boat has...

Oh, snap! I just returned from a road trip to NS! I could have just walked in with the part and asked for another one!

I wish I had called PP earlier. The shops have made me wait days only to tell me that they can't fix something or that they'll want to do something I don't think is necessary. Both shops took a...
Check not just the water strainer, but the entire intake system. It might be clogged somewhere.
Welcome to the forum. I hope that you are having a better time than some of us with "where's summer" weather. :-)

My local marina's mechanic wasn't familiar with PP, so I took it to a local Malibu dealer (not very close to my marina, but the closes inboard shop around). They recommend a full and expensive...
Did you tie a rope to the old cable before extracting it? This helps immensely because you can tie the end of the rope to the new cable and then pull it through.
Even with this step, it got...

No change to system. Yesterday we started noticing that, at no wake speeds and PP off, speed readings on pp go nuts occasionally. One moment it shows zero, then 60 mph. Then goes back to normal....
