    Oh, that's right. That's going to be dealer only and probably $$.

    I'm imagining a split on the horizontal surface where you actually rest your arm: You might still take it to an auto upholstery...

    Yes, get the Boat Buckle ratchets. They seem expensive compared to a basic nylon strap but it's one of those simple things that will make you happy every time you use it.

    Isn't it just an upholstered piece? I would take it to an automotive upholstery shop and have it recovered. That would be the cheapest option. Otherwise, that's probably a dealer order part.

    I too have seen the V-drive seat floating in mid-air. I just slide that seat up into the walkway to the bow with the open side up (on it's side/face) and it stays put there. All of my other cushions...

    Yes it is normal but probably at much less of a leak than you are seeing. Drive shaft seals use a "stuffing box" type of seal. The basic idea is that you coil a waxy cord around the drive shaft and...

    But note that this test/indication only works if you ran the engine since the damage occurred. If you haven't run the engine, you would need to drain the oil and check for water.

    Normally, the best-case-scenario is a faulty PCV system. Worst-case is blow-by through the cylinder rings/pistons or valves which means an engine rebuild/valve job....

    That's the classic failure point for water pumps. If you are ever loosing coolant from your car, that's a good place to look for a trail of dried coolant. I would say that your water pump is going...

    When I do this, the noise is like air and water squishing around until the air is pushed out. I wouldn't call it a "whistle". Am I describing the sound you hear?

    Not to worry, there is about 50psi of pressure keeping the hose from collapsing. Rev on.

    But don't rev it if you put the end of the hose into a bucket, pool, etc. Then you could collapse the hose.

    I've always heard this argument but can't wrap my head around it (pun intended). I can't figure how the entanglement risk is any greater than wakeboarding or wakeskating.

    So, very high humidity. I would recommend marine stuff but weigh it against the cost. If the cost it much more expensive it may mean that you could tolerate some premature failures and replacements.

    The concern is not that it would get wet directly, it's that it's exposed to high humidity. It's especially bad if you can get condensing humidity. Do you store your boat in the garage, or under a...
