  1. I purchased this boat last season. I went through each fuse to make sure I could get at them. All them worked except one (cabin lights)s. The fuse carriers have a tab at the bottom that you are supposed to push in and down, then the carrier pops out. This one pops down but won't release out, nor will it go all the way back in. I'm not going to force it. I thought I'd send these photo's to see if anyone has any experience with this type of panel and fuse carrier. BTW, I plan on carefully putting dielectic grease on the metal connections and dry teflon on the plastic.
  2. I think I may have found the right guy. Someone to help with middle steps without charging, knowing he's going to get some larger work out of it if there is some. Saturday I'm going to undo the set screw and see what the condition of the shaft is once I pull it back. I'll take a bunch of photos and proceed in increments.
  3. The boat is out of the water. It has a spade rudder with a radial cable drive steering. I’ll have to figure out that process. This weekend I’ll loosen the shaft from the coupler pull it back and see what is in there.
  4. Well, it looks like I have some work to do. couple questions: 1) is it possible to back the shaft out, bore the dimple in the shaft deeper and reset the screw deeper? 2) do you have any good resources for dropping the rudder from a wheel controlled boat.
  5. I figured it would get attention if worded that way.
  6. I am working my way through the list of items that must be done while the boat is on the hard. Next item. Propeller shaft and stuffing box. When I first got it, there was a "singing" sound coming up the shaft at a specific band width of RPM. It was like the resonance you get when running a wet finger around the rim of a glass. Ultimately it disappeared, except under heavy load of people or a strong stern wave. There was also a good bit of water coming out of the stuffing box under power. It was just about one large drop coming out per second. Its dry at standstill. When I hauled it I
