    Yamaha motor Cowl cleaning

    Seen Penatrol used quite often to brighten up a sun-bleached engine cowl. Let it sit overnight, wipe off residue and put on a coat of wax. Not perfect but looks pretty good and lasts a while.

    WTB X26 Tigercat

    Well kept boat, little pricey I think. If it had the upgraded swivel passenger seat it would really be desirable. Nice thing about these cats is the queen size bunk. Wife and I are tall and we cannot sleep on the Sailfish. It will probably go on the market this Spring.

    Yam aux charge lead for my house battery

    After running the house down I need to do something. The Yam cable kit is expensive and I'd like to make my own lead. What gauge cable should be used? Looks like about a 6' run. Looks like the red aux lead is about 8 or 10 gauge. And that's it right? It already has it's own fuse. Any...

    Just purchased a F26

    Compression looks great. If the engines seem to be running good I would suspect props. Are they stainless or aluminum? Are they dinged? Tweeked? Need to get RPM's over 5000, 5500 is better.
