    Skyline is great if you're not eating it non-stop! I love it here, but we only get a couple good months a year to spend on the water. We usually spend weekends at Lake Cumberland which is crystal...

    Where to boat in/around Miami, FL???

    I'm considering a relo to the Miami area and I need to figure out what to do with my boat. I noticed there are quite a few inboard dealers in the South Florida area. Where do folks take their...

    but... but... it says alter, remove or deface...

    That's the problem, it has been removed and thrown away - so I'd like to have another to put back in its place.

    Yeah, when I first bought it I got a little carried away with sticker removal waiting to put it on the water!

    This alone wouldn't be a big deal I'm sure w/ most patrol officers, but I'm sure it...

    So are you suggesting our boats are exempt because they are > 20' in length? I pulled this straight out of the Ohio operator's manual. It seems to imply I may get some flak if I get pulled down...

    USCG Capacity Sticker for ''11 Mobius LSV

    I need a new capacity sticker for my '11 LSV. Would someone happen to have one handy to snap a picture of and post here? Any model year LSV should be fine.

    Where's the best place to order? ...

    Is there a coupon code for this at checkout? I also have the same concern about the quick connect clamps.

    I think I may be in the clear on this one.

    Changed the oil this morning, I think I pulled out about 6 to 6.5 quarts (of buttermilk), which would be about a quart of water in the oil. Added some...

    One more thing I forgot about because I didn't think much of it...

    When we first pulled it off the water, we noticed that one of the exhaust flaps on the stern had been sucked inward. Sounds...

    I tend to agree gregski, but it's running as smooth as ever. With that said, I'll follow any advice that gives me confidence that it's not going to dump water back in as soon as I get it on the...

    No, not for that short run. Ran it for a little less than 2 minutes (without impeller) and shut it down. I'm hesitant to put the water on until I'm satisfied that it isn't going to get back into...
  12. Got it started. :o Ran rough until all of the...

    Got it started. :o Ran rough until all of the fogging oil burned off, but now it's purring like a kitty. Am I crazy to think I'm out of the woods? Shouldn't it be running rough if there were a...
  13. Took the starter to The George J Hust co. on...

    Took the starter to The George J Hust co. on Spring Grove Ave. in Cincinnati. These guys were pretty sharp. They bench tested it and said it was definitely bad and sounded like it may burn up. I...
  14. True. Confirmed that I have a bad starter,...

    True. Confirmed that I have a bad starter, possibly weak. So you're saying get all of the water out, put in new plugs, new starter and hope it runs like crap? I agree with that plan.
  15. I pulled the dipstick and it's pristine. I think...

    I pulled the dipstick and it's pristine. I think that tells me that little to no water has seeped around the pistons, which should mean the cylinders aren't damaged. I would do a compression test...
  16. I'm trying to push as much water out as possible....

    I'm trying to push as much water out as possible. Battery is strong. 30 seconds cranking with 10 min cool down doesn't seem out of line for the starter. Besides, I'm operating under the assumption...

    Went back over today and got some video of the engine turning over. It will only turn over with the starter after bumping the flywheel forward a bit with a pry bar. Reinstall starter and it turns...

    This evening I went back and continued turning the flywheel. I put the starter back on and it's actually turning the engine over multiple revolutions. Sometimes I have to take the starter back off...
  19. Thank you. I'll look into all of this.

    Thank you. I'll look into all of this.
  20. They pulled me back at about 5mph. Are you...

    They pulled me back at about 5mph. Are you thinking the water scooped in and caused the damage? I'm leaning that way too.

    I'll go back at it tomorrow with trying to turn the flywheel with a long...
  21. Pulled the plugs and there was water in every...

    Pulled the plugs and there was water in every cylinder. About 4 ounces came rolling out of #5 and #8. The rest just had a little bit in the ends of the plugs.

    Cranked it by hand from the...
  22. This was my first thought and still lingers in...

    This was my first thought and still lingers in the back of my mind as the worst case scenario. However, I don't believe I would be able to turn it by hand if it were truly seized.
  23. The smell was the impeller burning, I'm almost...

    The smell was the impeller burning, I'm almost certain. That or burning paint from the sides of the water jacket. But I lean to impeller.
  24. Wow, really? Even with the overheating issue...

    Wow, really? Even with the overheating issue occurring at the same time? Seems like a spectacular coincidence, or maybe something else happened at the same time that caused the starter to fail. ...

    Yes - towed it home and started flushing water through at about 180 degrees after trying to crank it once. However, I'm assuming the intake scoop could have been forcing cold water in while we were...
