Mike a vest also keeps you floating so they can find the body. j/k but a vest will keep you alive longer since at that cold of water you body will lockup and you will go under water. A vest will allow your body to float and not get water in the airway keeping you alive for that full hour before you do die from the cold.
Al, Very nice. That will keep you and the fam warm on the cold Oregon mornings and also extend the time you will be on the water. I might need your help to install another vent and cut into my boat when we do the Oregon Mini jam.

Need your help guys on heater install
Guys I can really use you help/expertise. I have been reading several threads on how to install a heater craft heater on my boat. I have a 97 Sea Ray with a Mercruiser inboard/outboard. I wish I had a Moomba, but the Sea Ray will have to do for now. I'm not sure on hooking up the hoses to the engine and hope someone can help. I think I have two options for the supply hose. Either where the temperature wire is connected on possible the screw that is inbetween the large and small hoses that have been taken off. Things are REALLY tight to try and put is where the temperature hookup is, but I'm not sure if the other screw is ok. That is where it would be easier if it will work. Anyone know if this will work? Thanks in advance. Scott
ps. you guys have a great website here. Keep up the good work.

Welcome to the forum. Have you tried to remove both the temp sending unit and the plug and then see if both holes are within the same chamber. If so, then it should work. Best thing would be to ask a local marina or boat shop who works on stern drives a lot to confirm. I asked my Moomba dealer when I bought my boat from them which plugs I should use if I decide to install a heater so that's how I knew.

Thanks Al. Yes, the 2 temperature units and the plug are all open together within the thermostat housing so i guess it should work fine. Thanks again for the help. Scott

So far so good. I have to go to HD and buy the valves that you put in. As far as the pipe joint compound, what exactly did you buy?2007 LSV - All red
