Re: stop these compression fitting leaking

Re: Can I remove outboard trim plate ?

I know - crazy right, it's almost like the manufacturer expected that someone would fit it to a transom.

Re: Hatches at Night, Open or Closed

I don't think wasp spray is a good idea (unless you've got wasps), just pointing out how it can be elevated a point or two on the irritant scale.

Re: I keep breaking set screws in prop shaft coupling
