    1974 Starcraft V Hull Questions

    That trailer is to short! You could get a new 3x3 square tube from your local metal shop and extend it. Move the wench tower ahead. Get longer bunks. Might have to also move the axel to gain some weight

    Asking too much from a 9.8 Evinrude?

    Check for spark on both cylinders. Sounds like its only running on one cylinder. What year is it? Are you sure its not a 9.9?

    18 hp evinrude locked up marvel mystery oil?

    I have used Kroil and that did the trick but I have heard marvel oil mixed with acetone 50/50 is also good. Might have to drop your lower unit to make sure thats not the problem.

    Suzuki or Tahatsu

    No Tahatsu dealer in my area but a Suzuki dealer not to far. That is part of why I am looking for opinions. Never a problem with the Tahatsu in the 5 years I had it but glad of that because of no dealer. I would probably buy online anyway because the dealer for the Suzuki is about 1000 more.

    Suzuki or Tahatsu

    I have a 2018 Tahatsu 20 and thinking of replacing it with a new electric start model. I have had no problems with it but just getting to old or lazy to use a manual start. If you had a choice of Tahatsu or Suzuki what would you recommend. Both are about the same price. Like I said no problems...

    Garboard drain plug

    I used a trailer hitch ball. I cut it down to length and ground it to shape of the original and used a rubber washer made from a innertube. About the only thing I could find with the right size and threads.

    Mounting a transducer plate

    I did something similar and used a locktite marine sealant from Menards. Its holding great but I also used the holes from the old transducer to hold the transducer plate on. Short screws from the inside of the transom and the adhesive sealant over primed aluminum.

    '78 Johnson 15hp - troubleshooting

    Sounds fine. It will be a bit jerky. It will be hard to shift without prop turning unless every thing happens to line up. As far as the idle that knob on the side might need everything attached to it cleaned up so it will move smoothly. You may have to tweek the low speed knob a bit .

    Fixing screw practice?

    I had a boat with that problem. Seemed the previous owner couldn't decide where to mount the transducer. I just took a piece of cutting board type material and placed it over the holes and used loctite marine between the boat and cutting board and used some short screws from the inside of the...

    structural integrity compromised

    You could also take a grinder to cut the opening and leave a inch or so on the bottom of the seat area that you removed and build a floor over it for a walkway. That way you would not need to remove the bottom rivets and it may help with the strength.
