Re: First sail April 19,2015

By the way Yukonbob you are my hero. When I think it may be too cold to sail I think of you sailing up in the Yukon and tell myself not to be such a wimp :D

Re: First sail April 19,2015

I only take the boat out once or twice in April...just to make sure everything is working and to order any parts needed. The only thing (besides mods) is to probably change out the 2 group 24 deep cycle batteries this season (they're 7 years old)...I may try to get a pair of group 27 deep cycle batt...

First sail April 19,2015

http://vid298.photobucket.com/albums/mm252/dreamerbucket/IMG_03481.mp4 I was out last Saturday off Port Credit, Ontario. Very gusty, hence I only hoisted the jib. Temperature was about 17 degrees celcius. Awesome day. Etec started and ran well. I think I'm set for the season after a brutally cold w...

Re: Don't take it personally

When I'm setting up at the launch ramp, most of the time there is usually someone who comes over complementing the boat and wanting to ask questions. I even had a few come on board to look around. Like Erik said it's about having fun and using the boat...I think a good bumper sticker would be "MacGr...

Re: Seperate Oil Tank Placement for E-tec Engines

You're right Seahouse my oil tank was also replaced at the 3yr service under warranty due to a slow leak. I usually fill to about 2 inches below the cap and that prevents any leaking through the cap when tilted.

Re: Planned Mods For 2015

Hey I like this thread because I figure if I have to post my mods, then I'll have more incentive to get them done. :? Once the nice weather comes I'd rather be sailing than modding. -Grease is splattering out from behind the hub of one of the trailer wheels so I'll probably replace bearing and seal....

Re: not so sure i like my new ETEC- convince me otherwise...

I had first issue in 7 years 2 wks ago while sailing with Geoff . Engine didn't sound right, took it in and the mechanic found that one of the coil wires was rubbing through and was causing engine to run on one cylinder intermittently. He shrink wrapped wire rerouted wire so it wouldn't happen again...

Sheesh John you make me feel so inadequate :? When I bought the boat in 2008 I insisted on the white etec 60(this was before they were offering it as a factory option for the following reasons: smaller size than a four stroke 60 making it easier to access cockpit from water- puts out more amps for c...

Re: Wish us Bon Voyage!

I was in the lake Wednesday and Thursday but theres a blue :macm: slipped at the Lakeview Promenade Marina it was probably him. Met the guy last month, said he bought the last :macm: from Dowsar. He's just learning the ropes this summer.
Enjoy your trip Dave...are you have some electrical issues?
