Av gas

I guess I could have waited longer but just filled my tank and drums with 300 gall at 3.00$ a gall. I’m good all summer.

Re: Exhaust System Corrosion

Rub down with fluid film when you take it out. My flex is 5 yr old and sees lots of salt water. Fluid film is real popular for vehicles up north. A gall will last a Long time. https://www.napaonline.com/en/p/FFQCNAS

I have the 3 blade on a 300hp 540. I took off a 6 blade warp. The warp had more snap and push, if it wasn’t for the ease of adjusting the 3 blade I might go back to the warp.

Re: Srnenich 72

I’ve had both, I miss my 6 blade warp. It had more push and snap. Also it took a beating. Hard to beat a solid blade vs hollow.

Plugs are so cheap and last till they finally start to rust. What would the advantage be for a peanut plug

I tried a Bimini too, it really intensified the prop noise, enough that I wouldn't even put it up while underway. Went back to an umbrella.

Look right along where it goes into the hub and generally they will be in proximity to where the outer clamshell and base join in that sea...
