Re: 240 BR Rebuild

I finally got a weekend to do some work. The interior is installed and loOKs great. Then the sides were re-buffed and polished, and now they look like they are supposed to. I installed the new steering wheel and its like the "cherry on top!". Still have a 3 rung ladder to put on, and the registratio...

Re: 240 BR Rebuild

I know, right? That's why I'm going to keep ole Red for awhile, just to make sure this one is going to work out.

Re: 240 BR Rebuild

I finally got her back home. 20170307_082758.jpg The stereo is installed and sounds awesome. Of course anything with a power source stronger than a 9 volt battery would sound pretty good to me... The stripe turned out good too. I wish it was a tab brighter but it'll work 20170307_083338.jpg The LED ...

Re: 240 BR Rebuild

It's been awhile since my last post. I finally got my boat back today from the fiberglass shop. The guy kept telling me it would "next week".. Look close and you'll see the red accent stripe on the bottom of the bevel. Now it's getting all this crap installed! 20170223_140529-1.jpg Stereo, speakers,...

Re: What you adding to your gas

I use Seafoam on every 3rd fillup. Incredibly good stuff. I rarely run below 1/2 a tank before I fill. Occasionally I'll get to 3/4 empty, and always feel anxiety when I do, just one of my quirks I guess. Seafoam stabilizes the fuel and keeps the system clean. Its also really good at removing any mo...

Re: 240 BR Rebuild

My boat sits on a lift in the summer in a covered dock, and without the deck covered it gets pretty nasty. The spiders make a mess, not to mention the birds and other lake critters that find an uncovered swim deck a handy place to perch, eat, fight, breed and poop. Over a weekend it's not bad, but i...

Re: 240 BR Rebuild

So I ended up not replacing the fuel pump after much study and research. My mechanic completely disassembled and cleaned it. Worse case scenario is I have to replace it sometime next summer. The motor runs really good! After the engine was reinstalled I took it to have a custom cover built. Since I'...
