  3. I used the arm of the rigger to get a rough level. A bubble level would be useless on a rolling pitching boat. The angle is close with this method. Not perfect
  4. I made up charts years ago that I used with a simple protractor from the store. This was before I got a probe that shows actual depth. It’s a real eye opener to see how much cable you need to deploy to reach a specified depth. I now use 16 # torpedoes. MUCH less blowback as son as I can dig out my tackle bag I will take pics and post them. Hope it will help

  9. When to put your boat in the water?

    Drain plugs on the 3.0 are on the port side . One in the side of the engine block , one on the bottom of the manifold .Use a stiff piece of wire to probe both drain holes . Sand and scale can clog the openings . You will think all the water has drained ,when there is still some trapped . For the record , I don't use RV or any other anti freeze . Just drain it and leave it .
