  1. North launch & access road is closed, South launch is open but it's about a 30 minute ride to the channel from there at no wake speed.
  2. State park in Fair Haven is open too
  3. Electrolysis is a very real & common issue for all the above reasons & precautions that Guffins listed above. I see signs of it on just about every boat that's slipped for the season especially where shore power is in use. Be aware of it & keep an eye on your zinks/magnesium anodes for any signs and you should have no problems.
  4. If your payin the shippin I'll take it

    magill : I'm assuming your steering an outboard & not an I/O. If that is the case there are several good options for the cable steer you have with out going the extra expense of hydraulic. As mentioned above Si-tex makes a good basic system utilizing an octopus R wheel drive, your rack & pinion cable will have to be replaced with a rotary style cable to work with the new helm. The Lowrance/Simrad system utilizes the same octopus helm as the Si-tex. If you do decide to go with hydraulic steering stay with the Seastar line over the Baystar or other after market brands for compatability with add ons later. And Chas : It depends on the system . The octopus is capable of driving some i/o's without the engine running.
  6. Stay away from the multi viscosity oils and use the recommended straight weight oil it was intended to use when it was built & you should see a considerable difference in both consumption & pressure. Factory recommendations for that era 318/360 is straight 30w in temps above +30* fahrenheit Shell Rotella would be my first choice
  7. I'll eat crow on that one. Some, but not many with the Mercarb two barrel did have a PVC valve system & that's what is on the end of that hose. No need to plug it , replace the valve if you think there is an issue.
  8. What carburetor is on it? It is possible if someone put an automotive Q-Jet on it and utilized the PVC valve & hose, but it is not anything factory. Picture would say a thousand words.
  9. What Sherman said, just asking for trouble if your running it that hard consistently. If it's turning that high and everything is in order you are under propped ( to low of pitch ) WOT early flat tappet cam 5.7L 4400 - 4800 RPM's.
  10. The kicker will draw from the main tank, thru the separator & anti siphon valve with no problem.
