Does anyone know how to spot a Gen I vs a Gen II version of the Mercury Commander 4500 Console top throttle? AFAIK, they look identical, but are different if you need to take the throttle handle...

Was Old Spice rebuilt with the leg offset slightly to counteract the prop torque - or does it have trim tabs fitted to stop it?

I've just looked back through the Gallery - Old Spice has got much...

It depends where it's kept - after a month on my mooring, it needs to come out for a jet wash/scrub. If you can go for 6 months, then I'd guess that the old/existing antifoul is still having an...

Hi Kwil,

I think that must be what's happened - although I didn't think that the tubes were inflated that hard, but it was a hot day - and it would explain why I can't find the bits!!

No - the main outside black bit is still there - it's the actual valve bit in the middle (i.e. ~10mm diameter bit in the very centre) that's gone. The outside black bit is still firmly attached to...

Pressure Release Valves

Quick question - when a pressure relief valve operates, I've always assumed that it vents excess air to relieve pressure, and then reseals/stops venting - is that right?

Ooooh - looks good. When you deploy the aux engine using that, what clearance do you have between the aux and the transom - i.e. would it clear a 9 or 12 inch trim tab?!?

It looks like the 'standard' sizes held by Force 4 etc aren't going to be big enough - according to Bennetts sizing info, I should be looking at 30" x 9" tabs?!?

How weird is that - I clicked through to Bainbridge Marine from the Lenco website, and they didn't list Lenco anywhere - must be an old site or something.
