    What is the total width of your platform including the handles? How much "water clearance" do you have? (i.e. could the platform be any wider and still stay out of the water?)

    To the OP: I wouldn't be worried about it. The difference between 15-40 and 25-40 isn't so great as to cause concern and like MLA said this difference is only at the cold startup. Keep in mind that...

    All inboards have a water cooled shaft seal. (Well, I believe all)
    The old, standard method uses a simple shaft packing that you tighten to the point where a slow drip of water goes through the seal...

    I agree with the above about the pylon being the strongest tow point. However, I often pull tubes and skis from the tower: Our tube can nose dive just a bit at start/stop and towing from the tower...

    Brayden has some useful pictures of it. 2 installed and 1 laying on the floor upside down. (No hockey pucks to keep it in place)

    A hole saw is really overkill for this. The cut doesn't need to be perfect; any imperfections are covered by the deck plate (ok only within reason but easily 1/4" of slop)
    Here's a 4 pack of rotozip...

    Even a small spill in the hull will be quite noticeable in the bilge water. Have you recently changed the oil? If it's actually a leak and not noticeable, you'll just have to keep an eye on all of...

    I just used a dremel with a spiral cut bit. Fiberglass is easy to cut.

    I used a bit of the 3M 5200 marine adhesive because I was doing a thru-hull and it was easy. That area below the locker isn't perfectly sealed (the real root of the problem) so I don't think you...

    How do you store your boat? I ask because my vinyl developed a handful of small cracks in the exact same location as yours. On mine, it is now very obvious that that back edge of the vinyl is hard...

    I wouldn't expect it to. The manufacturers definitely make a different cover for 2006 and up.

    Do you have a spare prop? If not, it would be worth sending that one in for repair and then keeping it as a backup. What was the reason for removing that impeller?

    I like the way you think! If you need a third, let me know. We too normally get a ride in November but I'm not sure if it will happen this year. The water temperatures are cooling faster than normal.

    Whoa! Ditto this. I would never park on a hill and expect the truck's e-brake to hold it. You can get a pair for less than $10. I always keep them in the truck. If something ever happened and you had...

    It's not that important. The biggest difference in my opinion is the handle. Cheap handles feel bendy and squishy to me. Other than that, it's "nice to have" all of the different take off sections of...

    A disadvantage to I/O's in a salt water environment is that there are more parts left submerged at all times, this means more maintenance to prevent corrosion. An OB can be entirely removed from the...

    It depends on the geometry. Let's say the "minimum" for a slalom course is around 2200' by 300' which by my calculation is a little over 15 acres. You will get good at P-turns - fine for skiing, but...
