Re: Yamaha ring free. Fuel additive

Pri-G goes in my gas cans before I fill them with ethanol-free, so it’s used all the time in everything.

Yamalube didn’t have additives similar to those found in the Mercury and OMC two stroke oils that precluded carbon buildup on the rings and O2 sensors. The use of Pri-G gasoline additive/fuel stabilizer made the use...

I believe that “fish camps” in this instance means simple houseboats without onboard power.

Pine Island Bay, then north, as far as Fish Creek and Haulover, which is just south of Chaz.

Re: Running in salt water

I forgot to note in my previous post that my boat has all stainless rigging. I had a 12’ fiberglass (no poly) DD Buick 350 boat from @ ‘83-‘90 that had a conduit cage and square tubing rigging. I fought a never ending battle with rust, replacing the engine stand once, and cutting/replacing other pie...

Re: HI-AMP FMD

This is on a 1980 Panther 15x7 and the hull inside and outside is very good for 39 years. The anode has very little pitting and the boat will probably spend the rest of it's life on fresh water. There’re three different types of anodes that I know of; made for freshwater, saltwater, and brackish wa...
