    Sorry I backed the t handle out of the body then the 2 front screws. Rubber barrels then came out with handle. I used silicone lube for brake callipers on it...

    @scottm explore getting a separate thru-hull and strainer. It might be cheaper than getting the combo unit you now have.

    I have those in the 48 Tolly. I pulled em apart and hit en with silicone grease- all good. I found I had to unwind the t handle on the back much further than I thought to operate easily though...

    Took the Tolly 61 for a test run after fuelling up for the winter, only got 23 Knots due to heavy weight of fuel/ water. Twin 735hp Detroit 8V92TA- 4 turbos!

    As well as limited air intake area, could there be an issue with air getting out of the engine bay? Could a high pressure area be created there stalling airflow despite the fans?

    Man that Bert is cool. Love the 31. I don't think it is a 'Moppie' as I think that is reserved for the open boats. Wasn't 'Moppie' the name of the first race boat on the Hunt deep v hull? I'm probably wrong. I have a pair of Volvo D4 225s...

    Good memories in small boats. Simpler times without all the responsibilities! Just took the 61 Tolly out Georgeson Pass and through the Belle Chain... That pass seemed a lot bigger in my 9 foot Livingston when I was young and indestructible...

    Yeah- we spend most of our time in the Strait of Georgia which can be a cast iron bitch. Completely confused seas. Heres one on the day we picked up the 48 and decided we would go fuel up. It got rather interesting once we turned 90 degrees...

    Well the 48 is an '84, terrific sea boat in most conditions and 700 mile range at 8.5 knots. After all the boats, I am totally convinced this is my favourite. Great handling, rugged build, sensible interior and lots of exterior areas. All on...

    I don't know about mounting shocks to the RPod but I suspect that taking it on a rough road for any length of time will reduce the structure to a number of piles of sawdust.... Budget trailer.
