    I inquired about those top mounted lockouts and the local boat shop gave me this long rant about how those should not be used and are not to be sold to end customers, blah, blah, blah. I didn't...

    A socket from the tool box works well enough but repeated use will start to bend the washer under the c-clip.

    Our reverse circuit is wired and working but every once in a while the trailer lockout...

    60 in Colorado too. I rode my bike past the lake. The air was so calm that the reflection was perfect and looked like one of those pictures where you can't tell which way is up... I starting thinking...

    I have no idea how much rain it would take to fill the bilge/hull area but maybe 5" plus the 5" above the carpet would be 10 inches of rain... is that in line with your 3 day rainfall?

    I burn a very little bit of oil just due to the heavy load but it's the same wakeboarding vs. surfing. I'm not too concerned with the effect of the lean angle on the motors. It's extreme for boating...

    They should fit perfect. It has the same overall dimensions (50x24x24) as the 1100#. The volume difference is just due to the circular cross-section.

    So apparently 2007 is the year they changed. They are pretty handy but like bergermaister said it's really only once or twice a season. In any case I bet you could contact a SC dealer (I always hear...

    Are you talking about the quarter turn latches that hold the hinge panel in the "up" position? What kind of trouble are you having? Those work well for me.

    And by "needed" he means "the absolute max that will fit"!

    I think that you'll see a difference between your 800# sacks and 1100# but I don't think you'll see a huge difference between the 800 and...

    Ah, now that makes sense but the advantage would be cable size by sharing one shield, but it wouldn't improve noise immunity.

    But with a total investment <$100, I don't think I'd care even if it only lasted a few years. It would still be 1/10th the cost of seadeck

    They are playing off of the terminology of a twisted pair conductor, which is a good transmission line for a differential signal but are talking about the stranded wires of the coax shield? Twisting...

    We just pulled the carpet out of the lockers. It just pulled right up. We did use a scrapper to get the little stuck on bits but it was pretty easy.

    And it's worth pointing out that basically all amplifiers use differential op-amps so the manufacture may well state that they use differential amplifiers but in no way does this mean...

    That's true if the drivers/receivers are differential. If they are single ended (which the ZLD is) then a coax RCA is the right cable.

    Sure, but doesn't carpet trap all of this too? The benefit is that you could hose this stuff clean and it won't stain.

    MLA,

    Sorry, but I don't agree with you. The setup that jmvotto describes won't be slower. It may seem slow because you have to wait for the first sack to fill before the second one fills. Running...

    If the same pump is used in each case, containers A and B will fill in the same amount of time.

    In fact, container A would fill faster than B. Exactly the opposite...

    Nope. You're missing the key concept here. If the 1180 sack is 2' tall and the 250's are 1' tall (I assume they are side by side) and are stacked on top of the 1180. Then the pump performance will be...

    Yup. And I'll add that ours drains perfectly well without a check valve. The sacks even collapse pretty well (but not suctioned like a raisin). If the fill/drain port is the low spot (underway the...
