    Picked up a new (to me) trailer

    Well, The plan to get my Formula Jr. out of Florida is really picking up speed. Crossing the Canadian/US border with a US trailer is sooooo difficult as Canada treats the trailer like a vehicle. So, I always buy a trailer in Canada and haul it down empty to wherever I'm going. However, this...

    A HA!

    Since 2014, I have noticed an issue with my stern drive being less than responsive and dropping down (over a day or two) while on the trailer. I replaced all the lines and had the trim pump serviced. Everything still worked, just not really well. I could not find any visible leaks. My...

    It's May, right?

    Finally, the 2016 boating season is about to start in earnest. I went Saturday to get my Greavette out of storage and bring it home. Other than the fact it rained all day (similar to the day I put it away) it's not a big deal. Except that in late afternoon, it SNOWED! And... then Sunday...

    All this for a thermostat housing?

    Okay, so I have been looking for a very hard-to-get thermostat housing for my SBF Holman Moody engine build and I actually come across one. However, it was still attached to the rest of the motor but that didn't stop me from buying it! This motor is a 221 cid SBF, set up as an Interceptor...

    A change of set up

    When we re-launched our restored Greavette in 2012, there were some teething problems that had to be solved. The largest was an overheating issue in the I6 250cid 165HP Mercruiser. After a summer of attempts and a bucket of $ (more than a couple thousand) the decision was made to repower. for...
