I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly. But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse. Once it passes that point it moves smoothly. And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult. I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
"Wondering how your adjustable car project is going. They are on my list. I did buy a second pair of footblocks to stack on top of the ones for the jib sheets that have jammers. My thought was this would be a good place to run the…"
I am planning to add Garhauer adjustable jib cars on my B40. To do that I will have to remove the end caps on the jib tracks. I realize that the track itself is thru bolted, but was wondering whether the end caps are just screwed on, which will make removing them much easier. Any advice would be welcomed.See More
Gary, I saw your email about the swim platform hose but couldn't find a way to link to it so here goes. There are a few ways to get not that area but you'll need to be a contortionist to fit. The first is through the rope locker. I'd try this one first as you may be able to reach the hose and fitting with a little luck. Another way may be to remove the cockpit speaker that sits right in front of it. You may be able to reach in from there. A third option is to go in through the cockpit locker. There's a plywood panel that sits on the aft bulkhead that pops out easily. Crawling in that area is not easy but may be an option. Last but not least is through the propane locker. You'll need to remove the liner the tanks sit in to do so. Note that you'll likely have to disconnect the drain hose that's on the underside of the tank which means crawling in through that plywood panel as mentioned above. Probably the solenoid wires too. BTW make sure you run some pink antifreeze through it come fall when you winterize or you'll likely get to do the job again. Good luck.

"Thanks guys! Cam - I'm heading to West Marine soon (don't have one close by, unfortunately), and I see that they have quite a few fusion speakers for sale - any chance you recall the size and model number that you used? No…"
"I installed a pair of Polk speakers in the cockpit. They fit where the stock units were and had much better sound. They were also water proof. We had the boat for 8 years and they still looked and sounded good.
Has anyone replaced/upgraded their cockpit speakers? The grill for one of mine is broken and they sound pretty terrible regardless, so it's time for an upgrade. I'd prefer to find something that fits the original footprint if possible.I'm open to any suggestions you may have about improving the audio quality both in the cabin and in the cockpit. Thanks in advance for your help!See More
