    Adding a Cobia Tower

    The last picture is what was " factory available " on the 290WA. Yet someplace it states that the tower is not sufficiently strong enough for this ! ? Obviously that isn't true.

    Adding a Cobia Tower

    I Seriously considered it once...but the issue was my boat lift / & canopy cover. Some of the 290wa came with a platform ( piece of starboard) and aluminum railing...but no controls ( steering nor shift/throttle) and of cource you would want a bare min GPS... Honestly... I see the aluminum...

    There are all sorts of beautiful finishes that can be used, and they all weather fast/bad.....what ever.

    26 ft Cummins 6bt

    I don't know what the specs are on a cummins, but on my Yanmar boost is over 30 PSI. I would guess your boost to be way low, check out the specs. I think that's about right for Cummins 6BT. They aren't wastegated. One of the reasons these engines are rated for such high duty cycles (on...

    Rubber nipples for fuse cover?

    Hate to say this, but I think West Marine sells them also.

    I am surprised by that. We have "certain gas stations" that carry "Rec Fuel" and All the gas sold at all the marinas is "rec fuel" ( which is ethanol free fuel)

    Breaking loose rusted bolts .. FYI

    I cant find "Free" anywhere, all I find is "Free All" (by certified labs) And "Free All" Is what I quoted, and bought. So you are saying they make another product, simply called "Free" ?

    Breaking loose rusted bolts .. FYI

    I've removed both of my turbos, to clean and rebuild. The first one was hell, trying to get the bolts out, which are T40 torqs heads. I have an air chisel with a bit I rounded off to use to pound out auto body work, it fits into a 1/2" drive T40, so I layed on each bolt to help vibrate and...

    Having fun designing my dream Shamrock

    It's easier ( and better) to build a platform ( that can be moved around) than have to "dig a hole" to stand in! I installed a very strong fold down "foot rest" that I stand on to look over the windshield when running home at night, luckily I have enough headroom to comfortably stand on it.
