    Penetrating fluids

    After applying penetrant (GIBB is my goto) to fastener I give the fastener a couple of solid whacks with a hammer. Read somewhere that this creates vibrations that help the fluid penetrate. Have no idea if it really helps.

    Buying a boat without a broker?

    You can use CG bill of sale (available on line) even if boat is not documented. Must use if boat is documented. Get more than one copy, including notarized seller's signature.

    Taping rigging to prevent snags on cotter pins

    Salvage some boat shrink wrap; cut into strips of suitable width; wrap around turnbuckles; secure with duct tape. Trick is to not let the tape touch anything but the shrink wrap.

    How to wire a bilge pump counter?

    The meter I have measures hours, not cycles. No manufacturers name, no instructions. Read out is not electronic, just rotating number wheels. Two wires, one black, one red. Looks like I only have to know does it get wired in parallel or series with the bilge pump. Judging by the gauge of the wires, series looks more likely but I don't want to guess.

    Is this bad?

    Easy Fix ... if you have a sack of $100 bills handy.
  13. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about something that was not a crime. The government can lie to you, but it is a crime for you to lie to the government. LESSON: Never waive your 5th Amendment rights without immunity.
