  1. I drained my I/O this afternoon. I have an 89 mercruiser with a 5.7. I believe there are four plugs total, two on bottom and two above twords the top of the engine. Three out of the four plugs drained very well but the top starbird plug was pulled out and no water came out. What does this mean? Is it bad, is something inside plugged up?

  2. Before I removed them in the fall I labeled all of the wires. And also this is my second time out this year and the first time everything was fine.

  3. I put my boat in the water today started it up and tried to turn on my lights and accessories. I have a battery selector switch that was on both position. When I started flipping switches I didn't get anything. So I checked to see if the terminals were tight and a few other things. After that I started turning the selector switch to different positions. The only the position that would keep all of my accessories on was the off position. Does anyone know what may be wrong? I was thinking the selector switch is the problem but wanted to get a few opinions.

  4. I have a mercruiser 5.7 liter 350. I thought last year I used an sae 30 weight oil. I bought some shell rotella this morning, got it home and realized it was heavy duty diesel oil. Is this ok or do I need something different?

  5. I have a 24ft penn yan contender 245! I jus bought otters and big Jon planer reels. I would like to know where on my hard top would be the best place to mount my secondary pulley. I thought that maybe four to six inches back from the very front of the hard top may be the best place. I got to thinking about it and think that it may be to far forward but then again I don't really know. I want to be sure of the best location before drilling the holes. Here is a picture to give you guys a rough idea what I'm working with. Thanks!

  6. What is the best thing to use for cleaning my hull? It sat in the water all season and has the worst residue built up. I tried using bleach, toilet bowl cleaner and it won't even touch it. Also what is a good wax to use after I clean it? Thank you.

  7. I wanted to post back during deer season but forgot. I was just curious about how the deer react to different types of weather. For example; how and what do they do with cold temperatures, wind, warm weather or snowy conditions? I have heard from people that during periods of low temperature the deer move around to keep warm. But let's say that there are high winds and a snow storm, wouldn't they be in a thick and heavily wooded area to be sheltered from the elements?
