Is anybody looking for a Zodiac fuel bladder? I bought one from this guy on ebay, and it is awesome! They are brand new factory fuel bladders that have neever been filled, and it's better quality than I even expected. It was a little dirty from being out of the box, but the least of my worries...

Here is an inexpensive 25 HP Johnson that seems to run well and should clean up or paint nicely...

They are a great price, so just wanted to share with anyone who may be interested. I'm not selling mine. I'm actually going to buy a second, so I have two for greater capacity.

Looks decent but I need a long shaft. I'll keep looking.

F470, OK. I thought you were needing a short shaft. I will keep my eyes open for a long shaft...

Thanks! I appreciate it. I will keep searching as well. I'm going on a boat trip shortly so I'm hoping I'll have something by then even if its a cheap temporary or a loaner. In the long run I'd like to get an E-tec.

Yes, I hear the Etecs are great. This 25 hp in St.Helens would get you by for awhile until you get an Etec...

I really enjoyed your pictures and vid SIBRider, great looking family mate.
My new wife was looking over my shoulder at the cool river shots and said; ''we could take Thumper (my boat) on a lake or river some day and wash off the salt''.....''I like camping''. Well now it's on my bucket list.

Cheers, Squid

I have a few newbie questions in preparing for my trip.

1.how do you know when the trailer needs new bearings? Do the wheels have play?

2. Did you get navigations lights? If so what did you get and where did you install them?
