What is causing this alarm on my Honda O/B?'

Checked battery voltage: 12.45V when off. Drops to 11.9 when motor running.
Is your alternator working? (11.9)

& is something rubbing against the flywheel. Idk if you meant alarms are going off or you’re hearing a screeching sound.

:D :D :D

I won’t poke it in any further - but yes.

Nevertheless, even women are told if threatened or worse to Scream “Fire” instead of “Rape” [God help them, protect them and give them the presence of mind]; As people are more likely to intervene if heard.

Re: High Sides

I go slow and steady with my lines configured as Capt Wayne said: “ , i also run a bow line( outside the shrouds :) ) back to the helm, and have a stern line ready with it as well, , and i can step off in a dignified manner and simply snug the boat up!” And yes, many of us may still have the strengt...

Re: Max Horsepower for '01 26 x

Here’s some nice Winter reading from 5 years ago . While it tells my story with a ‘97 :macx: & I’m staying with the 115 ‘cause it’s on the transom. However, having gone bigger, the Etec 90 was enough & the oil tank is internal. The placement & filling of the external oil tank on the 115 can be an i...

Re: Storing Kayak in MacX

I gave up on kayaks and instead use standup paddle boards. Inflatable ones are the most Mac friendly but have kept hard ones also through the years.

Re: Sportdrive X-5 ... Ok or not for a Mac?

The new seatalk nema 2000 is Much faster, as are the new autopilot heads logarithmically, with the evolution gyro capability. Basically, it does stuff you/we can’t imagine sans rudder interface even. Go to their website & talk to their geeks online & or phone. You won’t be sorry. If you’re absolutel...

Re: Sportdrive X-5 ... Ok or not for a Mac?

I started 13 years ago with a Raymarine SportPilot & loved how much room it Didn’t take up & the auto function it provided. But, make sure you have a rudder reference in your network. Bigger But: Raymarine + new Seatalk + Evolution network has come a Really Long Way :| So, unless it was ‘free for me...
