I have just taken delivery of my new (to me) searider 5.4 with Brand new e-tec 90 and I reckon it's a nice job!
I am going tomorrow to have an a-frame manufactured at a local engineering place and want to know the best way to construct this and make it fold (single a frame with nav lights, marker lights and vhf aerial)?
Next, I want to fit a little bilge pump. What should I go for, how should I fit it? AND could I also use it along with a tank of fresh water for engine flushing?
E-tec questions -
How often should I check the oil?
Is XD100 my best option?
What should the torque on the main prop nut be? Feels a little loose
Can I leave the screw in flushing hose connector permanently attached?
Should I run the engine whilst flushing?
Any thing else I should know?
Searider questions -
Can I bolt stuff to the hull?
What is best tube cleaner / maintenance cleaner?
Can I and should I anti-foul the hull?
How best do I clean the flooding hull?
I am sure there is more but hey!
