    Lost Stainless nuts and Plastic parts.... Try using a strong shop - vac. If fou can reach it by fingertip, shouldn't be any problem. Might not help with heavier tools.
    Just a suggestion.

    Thumbs down

    Yea! If they would make the boat 2' longer and put it all in front of the engines things would be much better. My next boat will be a staggared setup thats for sure. I just sucked out the stainless screws I dropped over the weekend with my shop vac. Plus my chest is still hurting from leaning over the bench seat on Saturday.

    You can always go to a blow boat and eliminate all those problems.

    I don't get it I only whip out one credit card, sign one receipt, both engines are done - are you saying you pay for each engine to be service seperately

    Your lucky, you had good engineers... mine didn't know how big my hand was... I stuck my hand between the bench seat and the front of the motor on my old boat and had to stay there until my dad finished dinner and heard me yelling for help.. 45 minutes hunched over the motor with my hand stuck, boy did my back hurt..

    I have been upsided down with my feet straight up in the air, head in the bilge..
