Re: Ever wish you had more seating room on an X? I found some.

Superior idea! You certainly thought out of the box since out of all these years I never saw that option before.
And even though I have 3 kayaks, hatchboard, fishing poles, clam rakes, etc, etc under cockpit, the table and support will fit under there.

Re: Carb rebuild/cleaning

About every three years for me. No replacement parts ever needed. ( be careful with gaskets, though) Just patience and a thin wire. I may have pictures somewhere. It can be done in a day or overnight on shop bench. I usually remove whole carb assembly and take it home. Symptoms it needs cleaning is ...

Re: Pulpit mount nav light for 2000 26X

Gotro,
Did you mount it upside down?
If so, is it still waterproof?
Did you swap color lenses?

Re: Macgregors of Masonboro and Wilmington (NC) - (MOMAW)

<grin> Replying to a 9 year old stale thread may be greeted with raised eyebrows by others, but so be it. My nostalgia for the "old days" is so strong this morning. I still go to Masonboro Island every few weeks but I haven't seen another Mac in years. Such a beautiful place. If anyone is still goin...

Re: Honda 50hp Service Manual

Here is a zip file of what pages I thought you could use in your task of replacing your BF50A lower unit.
I could flap my gums for many pages, as could other members here, but I will refrain until you ask.

Re: Honda 50hp Service Manual

Ok. I'll work on the lower gear case info from manual after my coffee.
The biggest thing I can think of is that there is a hidden bolt under the big round anode that has the fin on it. If you miss that, the unit can't come off.
More later. Yawn...... got up too early.....

Re: Help! Looking at a 26x, soon, on the hard

As your username implies self-flagellation over your decision, are you sure what kind of boat you want? Is "the one who must be obeyed" on board with getting a boat? : - )
