Forget the bilge pump, just get one of those trash pumps with a 2" hose so when all those tools turn into a pile of rust they can be pumped overboard....

Changing the starter on the right engine is about a 4 hour job, but I can do the center engine in about 20 minuets! As far as droping something, if its not metal that you can get with a magnet it stays there till the next time you pull the engine.

hey fever . . packinair informed me that when he works on one of his outboards an drops a tool it goes in the water and not the bilge . . . so either way its lost forever


mopower- thats some sweet lookin power. i'm asuming it is in your 272. have they been dyno'd? looks cool. i always thought those 272's were great boats.

Dave , now I'll give ya the dirty little secret as to why everybody who sticks with offshore boats eventually goes to twins with a full stagger. It's not that they don't unload as fast in big water, it's not about CG, it's not about directional stability and flying straight , IT'S ABOUT ACCESS ! Now don't tell anybody.
