    I would also recommend staying with 1/2 inch panels . If you use 3/4 inch make sure you check all the other interior panels for fit before you do the finish covering. I used marine grade plywood and coated it with penetrating epoxy. A little more expensive but a better job, and let's face it, a new floor is a lot of work and time.Also, all of these older Cuddy cabins retained a lot of moisture, especially if covered with vynil. While you have the floor out, consider improving the drainage in the hull. The poured in foam leaves no space for bilge water to drain to the rear. One solution i have seen is to create a two inch channel down the center of the hull and inset some of the plastic wool used by roofers when installing a "cap" on a roof. You can then refill the channel with foam. Any water you get below the floor will then drain easily to the back bilge pump. Best of luck.

    Installing Hydraulic Steering

    Vetting, I have also been having problems with my sportpilot steering as the unit becomes tight and almost binds when in manual mode. Where would the spacers be placed ? There seems to be adequate clearance between the wheel and the drive unit. I have also re torqued everything. The standard steering is very easy when the sportpilot is removed. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks , Jack

    Four years ago I had the carborater and fuel lines replaced. No major work needed since I've owned it. Previous owner had motor rebuilt about ten years ago. The out drive has had the water pump and hoses replaced three years ago. The motor is a Merc 140 which is actually a four cylinder Chevrolet four cylinder chevrolet engine- very simple maintanance - plugs, points & condenser.The out drive has much the same needs an an outboard with respect to lubrication. It is also important to visually check for cracks in the hoses on a periodic basis. What I like best about this size I/O is that it will run smoothly at 550-600 RPM which allows me to troll anywhere from 1.75 to 2.5 mph without the hassel of drift bags and stiil do 30-35 mph when you want. Hope this helps. Jack

    Not enough use to justify the expense of the slip at the marina and the 500 mile round trip, often solo. I also own a 1999 Starcraft Superfisherman 196 which I use to fish Lake Champlain occasionally and Quabbin Resevoir on a regular basis. I enjoy fishing lake "O" and will probably make an occasional trip with the Starcraft.
