    Mainly the heads, I would think. The chevy 350 produced anything from about 150-350 hp throughout the years, so there is much more to it than just displacement.

    The sun is brutal here and will fade everything, even things "UV resistant". I went with the charcoal grey just thinking that it would blend out better when parts started to fade.

    1)This really depends on your situation. No lock is 100% secure, they just deter theft by requiring time and tools to defeat. How secure do you need? How many inconveniences are you willing to accept...

    Like a guy hiding in one of the lockers? I'd bet that these guys always have someone hiding as a backup plan. It doesn't diminish the trick though - he still pulls off a solo drive and surf.

    I think having boat model in the sig helps give context to messages i.e. "does this apply to me?" kind of thing.

    I would like to have my cake and eat it too!

    Yeah, this is really unfortunate. I very much liked the minimal look of this forum without the sig pics.

    1" does seem like a big gap. Did you notice it with the carpet installed? Maybe that amount of gap is designed in to allow the carpet to wrap around? Maybe it's supposed to be 1/4" on each end and...

    We have a dedicated storage area for shoes. At the dock we just say "shoes go in here". Then they are put away and there isn't even a chance or reason for them to come back out.

    I would recommend a reversible pump. Add the through-hull, go to the pump and then the center bag, move the drain to the front center port of the IBS and piggy back the IBS off of the center bag...

    This would be overkill in my opinion. Even using it a few times in the fall won't cause much trouble. But feel free to baby your boat :)

    The absolute age of the oil isn't the problem. It's the quantity of acids and the time they are present in the oil. New oil that hasn't been used in a motor doesn't expire. Take it to the extremes:...

    They will do much better living out of the sun but the rubber still degrades with time. The usual recommendation I've seen is to replace in the 5-8 year range. I usually press on to 8-10.

    Personally, I wouldn't spend the money/effort. The shop I use does not balance them but they do a "close enough" approach of offsetting the heavy side of the tire vs. the wheel. Balancing helps with...

    Your "price jump" is 50% of the price! That's a lot of money for fit and finish. As KG pointed out those two boats are nearly identical. For $30k, I'd be looking at the 2006-2008 LSV which will be a...
