Regarding the fuel system I was discussing with my rigger the finer points of "pressure" and "Vacuum". Our Mercury Marine Verado fuel system does not allow us to deliver Fuel from the tank under pressure like your modern fuel injected car engine gets. Its a suction demand from the engines fuel pump. Sometimes a hands on demonstration is worth a thousand words. Simply stated, I asked him if he would prefer to quickly suck a gallon of gas through a little Red WD-40 tube or a big Black straw. He quickly replied; "Well obviously the big Black straw. I hate the taste of WD-40"

One of my boat builders shared a video with me. @ 4:20 I think its clear why the forged heads of the engine mounting bolts should be outside on the motor bracket at the point of maximum stress instead of a nut.

In that situation, you first put the camera down, second, you shut your yap, third, you start helping.

That dude failed on all 3.

Amazing he just cut it loose, must have one of those unlimited budgets! Heck, a little freshwater then a spritz of WD40 and she's as good as new.

Certainly makes a good case for Mercury requiring six mounting bolts on the Verados!

Amazed about it here as well, would have been much easier to tie it off and try to pull in the boat with it already at the surface than to come back and get it off the bottom and much better on the motor as well.

Also, wonder what broke that section of tube loose?

The transom is not flat. That puts extra stress on the bolts too. Fluid claims ABYC standards but pretty sure that transom is a fail on those standards.

No sign of sealant on the motor bolts either as bolts fell out on the ride back in. So that means the lower bolts would have water leaking past them into the bilge constantly..

Makes you wonder if they even used the correct strength bolts and nuts.





Here's a pic of the cockpit suspension system attachment. Shouldn't there be at least one thread coming out the other side of the nylock nut? Look at the size of fasteners attaching that plate to the deck!

I was in at 97! If I win can you bring it down here to Venice so I can put swordfish in it! I’m sure it will turn some heads down here, and shouldn’t have a problem getting some races either......

Someone like Ray or Reggie or Jassman would have put you under too. 3 miles an hour is pretty easy to get from a little trim from where I was. My goal for this run was simply to see that we have good water pressure now and how it handled with props turning out. I like how it handled. Like 19 year old tits. Perky.

So is the boat running faster with the props turning In or Out? My 39’ has the props spinning in so I’m curious as to the advantages either way. Maybe twin vs quads is apples and oranges.

Just wait till the 3200lbs of water comes out the boxes..... we may see the first mercury powered sea plane! What’s really impressive is I bet this boat has more deck sq footage than a 47’ vee!

only one way to find out
swap gear cases it mite wake it up
it will definitely lift the transom
Carry weight better
