      I have a loose cable/throttle with no tension on the cable and my boat is stuck in forward gear. Could you offer some advice on what it could be?

      Many thanks
      Hello. I am in search of vinyl seat replacement for a 2006 Searay Sundeck that has been discontinued by Searay. Would you happen to know or have any recommendations on who might have some or a match for that same color? Thank you.

      Hi Alex,

      I'm a new boater owner of a 1999 240 Sundancer. I want to charge the batteries (3) using my shore, home ac power. My battery selector switch has 3 positions.....What position should it be on? Also, do I need to turn both the AC panel on and the Inverter switch on?

      Thank you ahead!

      Hi Alex:

      There's a selector switch located inside a cabinet with a clock like face in the rear of the boat. The switch has 4 positions: 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. I need help figuring what position the selector switch should be in when starting, when boating on the lake, when parked in the driveway, and when charging the batteries?

      Thank you!

      Hi Alex. Did you ever figure out where the weird smell was coming from? I read about your rag test.

        It must have been a dead animal (a mice or something) stuck in the area which cannot be accessed or seen. I put the bleach so it reached the lowest point of the hull. That did the trick and the smell was gone in a day.

      Didn't want to add non value comments to the NE Flotilla thread - but wanted to let you know - I love following that thread. Have read every post for the last couple of years. You do a great job pulling it together while maintaining involvement by all.

      Now I have a couple of months of good reading...

      Guys, I rarely come to this page and we don't get any notification if anyone makes an entry on here. So, if you have any questions or comments PM would be the best way to do it, in case if you wish to have private conversation.

      Alex, how are you and the family.? Good to see you again this summer, I wanted to pick your brain on something. We are considering a 400 sedan bridge, 2001-2003. I've read most of the posts some from you and others it was a great help so far, I am leaning towards the cummins 6c's and see that 2002 the use of balsa in the core was ending, as per your thread. Now, if we where to look at a boat out of state what would you reccommend and how did you deal with this situation? And what to look for? Any help is appreciated , thanks for you time. Talk to you soon.

      Alex, my name is Bob from Pt. Pleasant.. I have a 2004 340 and I just purchase a 8'6 dinghy and 5 hp short shaft engine. rcknecht told me you have a similar setup. My question is where do you store the motor on your boat when it's not on the dingy/swim platform?

      Thans, Bob

      Hey Alex, do you remember the size tubing needed for the AC outflow to stop the rust staining on the hull... and what length. I tried a search and got 1000 threads and couldn't find it!!!
      Thanks Marshall!

      Did you add the 12V "flip down" TV to the aft berth? If so, was the wiring already present?
