Nice job Termeer crew.

I have read if you put warm water to the lower unit (via a hose from the house) in the spring, it will make the water pump more pliable, thus eliminating the over heating at idle.

Ouch on the boat again this year.

Phil. the warm water warm up really works for me. This year I re-winterized after our intial trip and the boat sat for about 2 weeks. Went back in an overheated at slow troll again. Hit it with the warm water again in the driveway and yesterday was fine.

If you dont get all the water out of your power steering cooler it can crack

the line. If thats all it is there not to expensive. Good Luck.

Great Job

Should have came with me. We had hot bagels aboard the Get Anette.

Thanks for showing us your program Adam.

It worked for us in South Haven

We were also able to use our braided lines on the boards.

Thanks again for the great day on the 31rst.
