Haha, I did that too. It was recovered in pollen and miscellaneous falling Spring crap 20 min later. How'd that Enertia perform?

Gave the Merc 250 EFI's a decarb treatment yesterday. 6 cans of Merc "deep clean" in 50 gallons and ran it hard til it was nearly out.

Today it gets a new SeaStar steering system. The old system pretty much gave up the ghost.

Installed a Flow Scan 7000 on my Yamaha F115 and then took the boat out for a quick run. Gauge works great and put two limits of kokanne in the boat in about an hour.

West Marine ptef. Used soft towels for application and removal. Will put a second coat on within the next month or so, plan to use a buffer to remove on the next coat.

Fish, The Enertia will be great with a different hub kit. Actually a combination Flo-torq2 and Flo-torq4.

I was running the FT2 and just in gear, and 6-800 RPMs, lot of vibration, which I can't since I do a lot of slow trolling. Talked to Ken at Propgods and he said I need to combine the Yam sleeve of the FT2 for Yam (which I have) with the inner hub of the FT4. Got that on order.
It was very windy, but I moved up from 5600 WOT to 5800+. MPH comparable as were fuel burn numbers to the 18 Relianec I had been running.

I loved the Enertia on my 150 Verado. It was very smooth everywhere but 6-700 RPM and great hole shot on the Yam Sunday.

Ordered supplies from Marine 31, including polish, to get rid of some minor dock rash and purchased a GoPro Hero 3+ Black for trips.

Picked up my newly re-hubbed prop from Admiral, thought about putting it back on.

1.had the boat lightly compounded and waxed from rub rail up including cockpit and helm.
2.Checked freon and highside/lowside pressures in the AC units. Flushed sediment from one.
3. Suffering from mild paranoia I thought I dinged the props coming up my canal at mid-tide Sunday. Had a diver check while I was out of town and all is good including the prop speed. Phew.

A pricey week and it's only Thursday.

Put the muffs back on it and run a stiff wire up the pee hole and see if it has something in there. If water is flowing out the exhaust while running it's probably okay.
Don't spend any money until you try a couple of things.
