Unless the sailboat is overtaking a power-driven vessel, the powerboat is the give-way vessel.
Turn the ignition off and hang on tight.
It depends on the jurisdiction. Different documentation is required for various purposes. Depending on the use and jurisdiction some of the documents needed include; Registration certificate Radio licence Radio users certificate of competence Insurance certificate Ships log Crew list Cargo list if any Passport Health certificate including vaccinations Personal certificate of competence Local charts
if it has no leaks the go on out and use it! if it is broken put it on ebay as "slightly used" ;)
A huge explosion.
Stay far enough away that the large vessel's helmsman can see you.
Ideally, they should be worn at all times. If you fall overboard, you won't be able to retrieve a PFD (Personal Floatation Device) from a locker on the boat.
You should take action to avoid a collision.
The powerboat. The vessel that has the greatest ability to get out of the way of the other one has the duty to do that.
Unscrew the fuel air valve on the fuel tank, connect the fuel pipe to the engine and prime the engine with fuel.
Depends which country. In most countries this is allowed
There's a magnet on the engine's flywheel.
Get your fire extinguisher and try to put the fire out.
A jet tunnel hull would be fantastic for ponds. With that hull design, a jet outboard can be mounted so its skeg doesn't extend below the keel of your boat.
The side where the anchor line will give you the least problems.
Common sense would tell you that at the absolute minimum you need to have a life preserver for each and every passenger in the boat. It would also be a good idea to have a fire extinguisher aboard and a first aid kit. If you are operating the boat at night you will need to have running lights fore and aft.
When it has a broad and slip-free deck, including rails that allows it. Power boats are made fro speed and it would be unwise to attempt to stand on the small deck are at speed from danger of being thrown off.
Fuel has weight. Depending on the location of the tanks, it can shift the balance of weight, increasing or decreasing how hard the tongue of the trailer presses on the hitch. Too far in either direction could make it unsafe to tow the boat/trailer.
Red. Starboard is green.
Half-hour before sunrise to half-hour after sunset
A green light is on the starboard side of the vessel. So it may mean that the starboard side is directly facing you.
under 13 years of age
Get control of your breathing, and stay as still as possible until your breathing settles down.
The best place to put PFDs while you're on the water is on your body. You should always wear your PFD when you boat.
The stand-to boat is the least maneuverable one. Easy rule of thumb: Whoever can get out of the way easiest is the one who does. If I'm driving a sailboat and you a PWC, you're the give-way boat. If I'm driving a sailboat and you an aircraft carrier, I'm the give-way boat.
Its a motor boat, coming straight against you.
Tides cause water levels to rise and fall.
To evacuate the gas fumes, so you don't blow up.
Whoever they can get the best price on it from.
It's either out of balance or made wrong.
Speed up to pass in front of the sailboat
When it's the least maneuverable vessel in the encounter.
Take the gearbox off and you'll see the flywheel. Then unbolt it, put on the new one, torque to whatever Volvo tells you to, and reassemble your boat.
That is a boat hull that does not have a keel beam or a defined chine.
only when under sail alone and when crossing the path of the power boat
You will need to free up the shift levers in the outdrive housing. This is where the "Shifter Cable" is connected. If there is corrosion and no lube they tend to bind up (especially in salty conditions) This prevents the "kill switch" from being engaged at the time of shift lever action into neutral.... It either needs to be adjusted at the control box (throttle) look for a thumb screw....or you may need to replace… Read More
It depends on how you load the boat, (one or two persons, gear, ect.), but normally a prop in the 15" range will work for your application.....Beaufort ha
Personally speaking, depending on the condition and appearance, anywhere from 50.00 to 150.00.
I have a 1975 Marlin Boat. 120 hp Inboard/Outboard Mercruiser drive. I got it used and ugly for $500 in Sacramento. I found some good seats and got carpet from Home Depot. I got a rebuilt carb from NAPA, changed all the replacment out drive parts (bearing, shift cableand rubber bellows) myself and found a good lower unit on CreagsList for $180 and added some nice parts like a stainless sterring wheel from a boat… Read More
Yes you can. There is a boat park about 3 or 4 miles up called Philipi park. Dock for small craft only, but larger yachts can anchor out. I've been there twice in a 40' boat, and friends in a somewhat larger one. You have to watch antenna height going under the bridge at the mouth of the river.
The 1897 (last iteration) is not a replica. The Model 39A and the Cowboy (not Texan) are direct discendants of the Model 1891 .22. Thus the model has been in continuous production for more than 110 years. The 1897 was manufactured (I think) 2005 to 2007. update of years in production are 2002-2003 1897 Texan 20 inch octagon barrel
If memory serves me right, on the 1980 model, the rectifier is located on the starboard, (right hand) side, of the front cowling support plate. On some models, the location was moved aft, just above the switchbox. If you're still not sure, follow the two yellow wires comming from the stator (under the flywheel), down to the rectifier.
in the lower unit
The flagellum is like a think "whip-like" structure that is attached t o the cell and helps it to propel and move. It could be like motor of a boat bc. that's how the boat moves??
It's NJ/PA slang. Not many people question it, I suppose. I don't know how or where it originated. It's not a matter of bad grammar; it's just a phrase, like, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
In California, all 2 stroke outboard motors that do not meet ISO 9000 emission standards of at least 3 stars are outlawed. So far, only the new line of outboards from Evinrude, called the E-TEC series, meet the standard. It is likely that this type of law will expand to other states, and also that other manufacturers will develop new models that will be in compliance with the standard. Evinrude has accomplished this feat with… Read More
It would be a little difficult overtaking if the steering wheel was on the pavement side of the car!!!
The world's best bowler is Shakib Al Hasan the former Bangladeshi captain!
8 pints = 1 gallon because if 2 pints = 1 quart and 4 quarts= 1 gallon 2 pints per quarts * 4 quarts = 8 pints go into a gallon
The earlier model 40 hp Johnson and Evinrude outboards use a special flush adapter. It fits over the water pickup screen in the side of the exhaust horn, located under the backside of the antiventilation plate, just above the propeller. I doubt that this flusher is still available on the market, so probably your best bet would be to use a large garbage barrel. I have, and on occasion still do, use this method when… Read More
You will probably need to go to a hardware store and use a standard size window trim.
Many things..going as far back as ancient times. Here is a quote from our great President Barack Obama as he toasted Mexico's President Felipe Calderón at a White House dinner: "We celebrate all that Mexico and its ancient civilizations has given the world throughout history -- advances in architecture and astronomy, mathematics and medicine, and of course, some very good food -- including the "food of the gods" -- chocolate" (Laughter.)

When you say "top", I presume you mean a bimini. Try Diversified Marine Products. They have a wide selection.
As long as you are careful why not. Hope This Helps. Rember to keep a three point stance at all times and you should not fall. New Answer Yes but it's not a good idea. stability of a boat is dependent on two things, it's center of buoyancy, CB, (the center of the upward forces on the boat) and its center of gravity, CG, (the center of the downward forces on the boat). On a… Read More
Without seeing it a specific fair value can not be determined. Is it all original or has it been fiberglassed? What particular model is it? What is the degree of rot or damage? Everybody thinks these Kidney duck skiffs are worth a fortune but only the most original & best condition skiffs are worth much at all. There are simply more out there than most people realize. A top condition skiff can be bought for… Read More
In Halo: First Strike it tells us he managed to get off Halo in a pelican with two other people just before Halo exploded. I know this doesn't explain the final video but that video is non-canon (Not story line related)
It depends on the the boat and how it is set up. Most race boats go 100mph +. However, speed boats usually go upwards of about 60. The term "speed boat" mostly refers to the design of the hull of the boat, and its intended purpose(to go fast) not the speed. The current record is 317.596 mph, set by the well-know Australian racer, Ken Warby.
2004 is the year model. The 10th digit of the vin number is the year model. 1999 - X 2000 - Y 2001 - 1 2002 - 2 2003 - 3 2004 - 4 And so on. ROCKETMAN
Answer Since oil floats on top of Anti Freeze, all you will have is a mess.
The US Coast Guard or Coast Guard Auxiliary personnel are going to be looking at the material condition of your vessel. They will be looking at the hull, thru hull piping, engine compartments, bitts, chocks and cleats, free-board, bilges, bilge pumps, side plating, frames, navigation lights (if required), VHF radio (if required),etc. They will be looking at safety items. Personal Flotation Devices "PFD's" (proper number, size and condition), life rings, immersion suits (if required), life… Read More
For the most part, the answer is no, as most would not handle the rough water. However, some more high pontoon boats could probably handle occasional shallow water ocean usage. I would think some of the larger tri hulled models such as the ones at the link provided below could handle it.
A Johnson outboard, model 6R-74C, would be a 1974 year model, 6 hp.
140hp in-line 4 cyl. should have a firing order of 1-4-3-2 but you should probably invest in a service manual. not a bad thing to have
Because the wind is unreliable. That's why they call the wind "Moriah".
go to your local marine dealer & get a teak oil kit it has. a cleaner. a bleach. & a bottle of teak oil. there are instructions on the box. good luck
Dieter Marschall's book might have what you need.
I have a 1973 Ford Mustang, which came stock with all vinyl upholstered seats. I got lucky, and they weren't damaged AT ALL. they had some minor dirt problems. I've done some research on the internet, and it says that you can clean them with most household cleaning products EXCEPT: Bleach. which i wouldn't recommend anyways. an article i rad says that WATER can damage the seats or cause mildew or mold, BUT only if… Read More
There are no stats for this question. However, dog owners are growing and the owners are from all walks of life. Some psychiatrists use a dog in their office to keep their patients calm (child/adult.) Children's hospitals will also use dogs as well as nursing homes. It's a proven fact that pets that owners love (be it dog, cat, bird, fish, etc.) will lower a person's blood pressure significantly. Stats say that dog owners that… Read More
you have to be 15 and 1/2 years of age in order to get your temps. in driving.

Depends on the manufacture. On Chevy for instance, the engine Serial# will tell you where the engine was made, month, year, and vehicle it was installed in. Use Google to search for engine codes for your vehicle.
you use 80w90 any further questions email me at email@example.com it is varriable.most common 80W90.If you go in any auto store they will tipe it into a computer and will tell you exact for your car and model
Check out www.oldmercs.com. They have the most comprehensive inventory I have ever seen and their prices are very reasonable. I've needed some obscure parts for my 1940 K4 and was shocked at how much they have available for it still. You can even get original parts lists with illustrations.

The sport of boating on the water with motorized craft. Powerboating From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Power boating describes activities performed in a motorized boat. Generally a power boat has a high power to weight ratio and a hull design that allows for easy planing which allows for higher speed and improved handling. Power boats are often used recreationally including waterskiing, wakeboarding and other similar activities.

80 lbs i just bought one on ebay..
http://www.brunswickmarineemea.com/download Click on "Operation and Maintenance Manual", then just drill down to your year and model.
The VIN is incomplete. The only information revealed is that it was manufactured somewhere in Asia in 2006.
Without knowing the horsepower, and going strictly by serial number range, this engine would be a 1979 - 1980 year model. To be completely accurate in determining a Mercury year model, you need to know both horsepower and complete serial number.
Check the engine shroud, and if it is a v-twin, check the OHV valve covers.
Johnson and Evinrude outboards, use the model number, rather than the serial number, to determine the year model. Mercury outboards, uses serial number and horsepower.
Mercury Premium gear lube is caramel-clear in color. It should be changed every year or 100 hours of use. If it gets old and smelly it should be changed. If you see white streaks you have water leaking in through a bad seal. Mercury High performance Gear lube is blue/green-clear. See more at sterndrives.com

The correct mixture is 50:1, or one pint 2 cycle oil to six gallons fuel.
For the sportsman looking to buy an outboard for fishing, it has little to no value. Most repair parts have been long obsolete. For the collector however, a 1.4hp from 1933, should spark some interest. I would say from 350.00 to the 600.00 range is not out of line. Rarity, and appearance are driving forces in this market.
A model TD 20, is a 5 hp Johnson outboard, manufactured between 1946 and 1949.
Use an electric pump or hand pump to suck it out of the dip stick tube.
