    Sealant for transom bolts

    Is 100% silicone not acceptable? I'm about to do this project as well and use GE 100% silicone that says it adheres to aluminum.

    Trying to clean inside rivets and seams.

    All great ideas. I also drilled out the small holes and use a closed rivet coated in 3m 5200.

    Need pics of older Bass Tracker or similar throttle control set ups pls...

    My 93 Tracker 17tx had the throttle controls and cables removed prior to me taking ownership. Any pics anyone can post of the throttle controls will be a great help. I've been trying the internet and YouTube but need close ups of how it's mounted and wide angle pics as well. Thanks in advance.

    Wiring first boat, 93 bass tracker tx17

    I haven't seen a video on the cranking battery and deep cycle (in parallel) being wired together as a bad idea in a certain switch position. Good to know.
