    Floatation

    Hi Gappy, I went to Aus-thyrene to get my foam when I had accidentally spilled the petrol inside the boat. They got a lot of off-cut there. Last time I just paid them $20.00 for a half load of ute. It is located in Kings park near Blacktown. i found out there are different types of polystyrene they got. Some of them are more firm and some of them are soft. Cheers Phil

    Twin under floor fuel tanks

    What really makes an aluminium tank so expensive? Does it need to be certified? How thick is the fuel tank wall? I believe it will only need less than a half sheet of aluminium plate to fabricate 40 litres tank.

    Hi Gibson, I had the same problem with my Johnson 90 HP outboard before but it was fixed when I changed the old fuel and the two stroke oil change to xd-50. Rather than using ear muff, flush your outboard from the tail will also help to clean up in detail. You can also take out the prop and clean it up further and install it back after finish cleaning. cheers, Phil

    Botany Bay/Foreshore Rd Ramp Incident

    Hi, In this case, the boat insurance cover the damaged car or only cover the boat and trailer? On the other hand, does car insurance cover the boat and trailer? Phil

    Would like to get my boat license

    Hi FranticD, Same as hookmeup, I did my course in D'albora but Cabarita instead of five dock. The instructor was very helpful and never fail anyone (at least no-one fail in my group). There's a chinese guy who knows little English also pass the test so your chance to fail the test is zero (thats what I believe). They also let us drive their aluminum catamaran during the pracical. Very nice and steady boat. Goodluck cheers, phil

    Outboard not pumping water

    I think u can also flush the outboard from the tell tale with the outboard running as well instead of using muff. Regards, Phil
