Hello from Michigan, USA!

I don't think I ever did a proper introduction.

My name is Richard. I work for and manage a store that handles SCUBA, as well as inflatable boats sales and repair. I am the primary repair technician. We are an authorized repair center for Zodiac, AB, Achilles, Walker Bay, and many others.

I thought I could bring a little professional help to this forum in regards to inflatable repair & maintenance. We do a lot of repairs on older inflatables, so I've got a lot of experience fixing 20-30 year old boats.

They're freshwater too.

My boat is a former USMC CRRC, an FC470 RU. I've got an ollldddd Mercury 50 hp 4-cylinder 2-stroke on it. Unfortunately, I've been having some issues with the ignition. Turns out the some of the wiring was rotted, and the ignition switchbox (PN:3213A3) was crapping out.

I'm fixing the engine up this winter, so it'll be ready for the 2014 dive season. I'm looking forward to taking it out here next year:

Lot of really nice wrecks there, as I recall. That area (wreckwise) was first explored and proposed for Sanctuary status by the US's first underwater archeologist. "Submerged", by Dan Lenihan, is an account of his early career, and has a section on the TBNMS (at least I think it does.)
