    I'm interested if anyone has any knowledge of what is needed to install a Honda Generator on a boat for battery backup. I had a huge 300lb battery for my stereo and am over it. I like the idea of the 47lb generator that I can use for other purposes. I think I remember hearing about needing to...

    Just pulled the pump and intake out of my boat due to a leak. Now when I put the intake back into my hull I'm looking for some advice. I have read about what sealant to use but I'm looking for help on setting the intake into the hull. Angle/height? What should I be looking at.

    in a general rule of thumb kinda situation, i have read that the wood used for a bulkhead in a vessel shouldnt actually touch the outer fiberglass structure of the boat. this is because as the boat flexes the wood will not and it will crack the hull from stress. it should be mated to the outer...

    I have a 1984 19ft bahner and was wanting to put in a bulkhead. I read on another thread to be sure to leave a gap for expansion and contraction. But before I glass it in I wanted to know if anyone knew why they didn't put one in to begin with. Is there a specific reason there's no bulkhead? Thanks

    Ok guys I am questioning myself. I heated up the insulator ring and as it was melting i removed the brass wear ring. The insulator looks ok I think. My new wear ring will not go in. Do I need to heat it up again and slide it in? I have a pic I will post in just a few
