Not sure if it has anything to do with it but you should be using non detergent oil.

Re: The Building of Miss Dot

A little update on Miss Dot, this past weekend I took her to the Lake Hartwell show, if you haven't been to the Hartwell show you are missing a great venue, the Blue Ridge guys and gals are doing amazing things with this show. I'm happy to say that Miss Dot won her first show, best runabout, and I w...

Re: 5200 Bottom. Space planks??

I can also vouch for Don's method, used it on my boat and even though my bottom is only 9 years old, it still looks great to this day.

Re: Sea-Mite Siren

After further inspection of the motor for the Siren it looks like I may have to go to option two but haven’t totally given up on option one yet. With that said, option two would be to try and find a replacement motor. Do any of you know what the hp & RPM might be for that motor?

Re: Sea-Mite Siren

Spoke to Mr. Randall but he is a bit under the weather and not taking on any more projects for the time being.
Is there anyone else that could be recommended, it is basically the motor than needs attention?

Having the same problem on my 41 deluxe runabout which vents out the side. I only have a couple of inches above the tank to work with which gives no room for a loop. You guys have me thinking that maybe I need to blank off the vent tube and drill a hole in the cap to cure my problem. I also learned ...

Maybe I should have worded it differently, what did the geese have to do with Chris Craft (have to say, I never payed any attention to the geese on that post war emblem before)?

Not sure if the model B has the fitting in the same place as the GM model 70 but here is a pic of where it's located on that engine, it's the fitting right behind the fuel pump.
