When I bought my boat, 2 freeze plugs were laying in the bilge area. Boat was sitting for over 10 years.

Thought about just replacing the 2, since the others looked ok, but ended up replacing them all. It was cheap insurance and a great peace of mind.

Anyone got any positive boat meanings?

Personally, the "bust out another thousand" saying gets old, especially by people that don't even have a boat.

Have fun sitting on the shore!  :thumbup: :beer:

Anyone know when it's happening this year? The ol' Tahiti is getting jealous of desert season and thinking this would make for a good day to take it out.

Been a few years since ive been down that way. I usually launch outta marina west. How are all the launch ramps on headers? Is there a better ramp to use that doesnt mind? I have no baffles and not water running throught them, i would hate to drive down there to just get sent home.

Never heard of anyone getting hassled over open headers at Elsinore. If you do, just drive to the next ramp and try again, but doubt you'd have a problem in the first place.

I'll be there Saturday... damn 1milekyle... must be nice...   make room and I'll come camp and bring the brews !!!

Haha, yeah it is nice. It's bitchin to have your own sandy beach, camp on the water and not deal with launch ramps on a Holiday weekend. He keeps it locked down with family/friends only though otherwise I'd be inviting everyone over haha.

I don't have much more space then that in my boat, but it's absolutely perfect for the midgets and a 24 pack AO cooler fits like it was made to be between the bucket and bench. Have managed to fit 2 full size dudes in the back (don't ask) and everyone was comfy enough for a trip around the lake. It works for being a 18ft. boat.

Surprisingly, this is the best pic I have to show how much room there is lol.

Beer lounge?

Be at Elsinore Saturday AM thru Monday. Can't wait!  :beer: :beer: :beer:

I get random/periodic back pain and the best thing I've done to help remedy it was use a inversion board. Hang like a bat a few times throughout the day and let the muscles, spine and discs stretch out.

Last weekend my boat developed a random misfire, usually under a load above 3500 RPMs. Went through it all, pulling plugs, wires, distributor, etc. All looked good until I looked at the plugs closely. Cylinder #6 had a hairline crack in the porcelain. Further inspection found where the spark was leeching out from the wire boot. Threw in new plugs and wires last night and pretty confident she'll be back to running bitchin' this weekend.

If the oil is not wet in the pan (banana goo) like mobboss stated then I don't think you have an actual problem.

A little bit of baboon poo in the valve cover area is fairly common if the oil is not allowed to heat up enough to boil the moisture back out of the oil. You oil temps really need to be in the low 200*F range.

I also agree with Ralph that a good baseline compression and leak down should be in order.

Looking at your picture, I am not so sure you have a major issue...



You have to figure, the engine is running in a high moisture area with low running temperatures. Every time you turn the engine off and it "cools" it draws in surrounding moisture and the condensation will form like what you have. I have fought similar conditions WITH engines throughout the years and have learned that some do it, some don't, and to just keep an eye on engine oil level/condition.

Water in valve covers with no increase in oil level. Run it. If it's filling up the pan, you got a problem.  :thumbup:

Keep RoadRunner in mind as well. It's right next to West Marine.

Small ramp, super low key, close parking, beach to park at.

Be out there Saturday for sure. Going to have a couple midgets with me though so probably only be out there until early afternoon.

Boats For Sale / 1974 Tahiti - 18' Hatchback Tiger
« on: August 09, 2013, 08:41:20 AM »
Cool little boat, just got done going through the entire thing. New plumbing, wiring, cables, alternator, starter, distributor, rebuilt jet with roughly 4 hours on it. Boat is 100% turn key, have had it out every weekend since completing it and haven't had any issues. 20 gallon bow tank, 455 olds runs strong and fires right up. Good for an honest 55mph on GPS. Trailer has new bearings, seals, wheels and tires as of this year. Not a beautiful show boat, but looks good for it's age and is reliable.

Not in a hurry to sell it because it's a solid ride, but would like to move into something bigger.

Looking for $4,000. Have titles in hand for boat/trailer. Includes annual lake pass for Elsinore.

Buck Smith Spico...

Only reason I say that is I just got a similar boat from my uncle and that's what it was identified as. Backs a little different, but where your arm goes and the slanted down bow it has a lot of the same features judging by photos.
