    Mercury 1996 30 HP Manual pull really hard to pull Why??

    When I was looking for a motor for the F-9 rebuild - I specifically limited it to electric start...and that's what I got 1973 Evinrude 25hp Electric start - I retrofitted an Emergency Cut-Off Switch so I'm fully up to code.

    What size Mod-V Jon boat for a 25HP outboard?

    My F-9 is the father to the V-14. Pamphlet shows two measurements. 15' from bow to stern along the gunwale, 14'2" Prow to center of the transom. A 14' semi-V should be good for up to 30hp - my F-9 is rated to 35, but the newest V-14 has lowered that to 25. Older model semi-Vs had two different...

    Winter projects? Almost spring

    I tried the Al's - went back to Owner....they're more expensive, but have a pull knob so you're not in danger of poking your finger taking the bonnet off. Almost spring? This was taken this front door.

    Tin boat recommendations

    Tin boat recommendations

    Check out the Lowes 1652 - a little narrower, but plenty wide enough for stability. Roaming Rock Marina in Roaming Shores (21 miles from you) carries Lowes.

    Mystery Boat...

    I found the catalogue page for the 1993 models...some things look off based on that - your boat looks more like a Classic Fisherman than a Yukon. 1993 Sylvan Catalogue - Pg 18-19

    They're just standard cylinder cam locks I got off Amazon - Uenhoy 6 Pack Cabinet Cam Locks Keyed Alike - the cams lock under the aluminum angle framing. They work just fine, seem solid enough too.

    See the link in my Sig-line. Only wood I used in my modifications was the decks - and that's only 1/2" plywood - rest is aluminum angle, riveted together and to the hull. To see the start and finished product - F-9 project completed

    Seal leaks around rivets.

    This is what I used to seal holes from where I'd drilled out rivets for the F-9 rebuild. Should seal those leaky rivets right up.

    1972 Alumacraft F-9 Lake Master

    Thanks, Kismet, for the nice words The butt-seat isn't to sit on really, it's just something to add stability as you use it like a tripod - two legs are your legs, the third leg is the yes, it's a little higher than a sit-in seat. Far as the center of gravity - from my calculations...
