    I have a 1996 carb'd Mercruiser 454 in a Warlock that I'd like to change the oil myself and save a few bucks. In the past, whenever the boat needed to go into the shop for something else, I'd just have it changed at the same time. Currently, I don't need to take it in for anything but it's due...

    How often should the drive oil be changed? I was told it should be changed every 50 hours.

    The Washington Redskins are changing their name because of all the negativity, shame, humiliation, dissent, polarity, adversity, defiance, hatred, animosity, contempt, discrimination, division, violence, counter-productivity, ill-spirit, un-Godliness, and hostility associated with their name...

    Can the back seats be changed out to a forward facing bench seat on this boat? (18 foot 1971 Tahiti) If so where can I get this done in Vegas? I am worried about my kids falling into the engine :/ Thanks

    How hard is it to change a whirl-away from rh to lh? Can the dogs be simply flipped? Not sure I want to just tear it apart to look as the wife's Litchfield will need one sooner or later if it's too much trouble to change the direction.

    Hey guys, just curious how often you change the little fuel filters on the carburetor fuel lines? In replacing them are they just standardized or are there different filters for marine application carbs?? Thanks!

    I was reading in another post about the spray liner for his boat and removing the carpet and it got me thinking.... What would I have to do to replace the carpet on my Bennington with a non-slick surface? I believe under my carpet is wood. Is it a matter of having someone shoot/apply...

How many of you have heard this, and have any of you said "The heck with that, I'am changing it". I quess I do have a couple superstitious believes. Also any stories from the ones that...

    I know this has been answered before, but what can I expect to gain or lose by changing from a "B" impeller to a "A" impeller. Do I gain holeshot with an a and lose top end mph? I know alot of factors need to be figured in.

    Three months ago if you asked me who I was voting for, there would have been no hesitation and with complete confidence, I would have said Barak Obama. I'm so ready for change. As the election draws near, I've done tons of research, watched every debate and read most of the polititcal threads...
