    I LOVE my Shamrock

    I'd rather have the gauge reading wrong in the direction that yours is reading than the other direction. At least you won't run out thinking you still have gas in the tank.

    Obstructed Heat Exchanger Outlet

    +1 on muriatic acid.....You can get it at most swimming pool supply houses. It is used for cleaning the corrosion out of pool filter fingers. Nothing to do but soak it and then hose out good with fresh water.

    New Shammy owner repower questions...

    It has already been brought up about different starters/alternators/ flame arrestors for spark purposes but if you are installing an auto engine also do yourself a favor and get a complete new "Brass" freeze plug kit for the engine. Do away with the old auto steel freeze plugs. They don't like...

    It may be able to pull 6500 lbs but I sure wouldn't want to try to stop that weight in a hurry. That was the case with my truck and the incident I spoke of......Just my $.02

    Do I need/want trailer brakes?

    Personally I would not attempt that trip without brakes if possible, especially with highway speeds. I've trailed short distances without brakes but have always done so at slow speeds. I was once trailering my first Mako 23 inboard with a trailer not having brakes. It was in a light rain after a...

    Boat sinks in Jupiter Inlet

    Something about the video seems strange to me. You can tell by the way that the video follows the boat and zooms in and out that it was not shot by someone on the side of the inlet. It appears to me that it was filmed from an aircraft (probably a helicopter). You don't suppose that this could...
