    Used Asymmetrical Spinnaker

    Freeing frozen thru hull shutoff valves...

    If that sea cock and thru hull are original , then I would leave alone until you can pull the boat. Trying to unscrew the sea cock may break the seal on the thru hull.

    Sta-Bil gasoline additive life?

    No doubt ethanol has ruined many small engines and will continue to do so with the advent of E15. Too many do not understand the issue. Stabil may or may not work but I use it anyway. The real problem in Missouri is finding ethanol free gas. I use a Stabil anti ethanol product in my cycle...

    Sourcing parts for a Yacht Specialties steering pedestal

    Specific parts are not available with a few exceptions. Try to find the dimensions for the shaft the levers attach to and compare to Edson. If the same or close you may be in luck. This vendor has levers to fit Edson. Look under deck hardware.
