    EHS
  1. I bought a used boat last fall. The boat came with a GUEST Class B, Model 630A EPIRB. The gentleman who had the boat bought the EPIRP back in the late 80's with his first boat and kept it with his next 3 boat purchases. I cant find any information about this EPIRB in regards to if it can be serviced or whether it is still active. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
  2. The cam latch is useful in a hatch where you dont have to get in it numerous times on a trip.
  3. The box stores sell a disc attachment for powerwashers, which is about 15 in diameter. It attaches to your wand and has a rotating arm on the underside with two heads. It covers/cleans between 2-3 boards at once. Takes all of the guess work out of choosing a nozzle and maintaining the same distance from the deck. Put soap/chlorox solution on deck then use the disc. Mine does a real nice job and cuts the time of washing your deck by at least half. Spindles and posts are a different bear.
  4. Been there, done that with a 200 hp Mariner 3 years ago. PB blaster helps in the top grease fitting, however heating needs to be done with a propane torch or better. I got movement of the engine back and forth but it was still tough when hooked up to the steering cable. I finally drilled a hole above the collar on the bottom of the tube, tapped the hole and put in an additional grease fitting.. After a few pumps I had grease coming out the bottom and top of the tube and steering improved dramatically. The tube is aluminum, so it is very soft to drill. If you do this, make sure the drill hole is smaller than the grease fitting, since the aluminum "taps" very easy. Good luck!
  5. I went in there last summer with several prices for the identical washdown pump sold (not in stock) at their store. They matched the lowest price I had. I was told it didn't matter where it was advertised, as long at it was in the past 30 days. They ordered it and the pump was in the store within one week.
  6. Jimmy, I had the robotic surgery almost 5 years ago. I was in the hospital for less than 48 hours. Good luck!

  8. Thank you for all of the replies. This helps,
  9. Taking the boy scouts shooting in a few weeks. Are the Remington 22 rimfire hollow points legal in the great state of New Jersey?
  10. Make sure the 40" piece of Corian you are cutting is supported. If not, when you get half way through, the weight of the Corian could cause a break in front of your saw cut. Trust me, I know!
  11. Unless you are great with tying knots or splicing, I wouldn't even think about tying two lines together. Buy the length or even a longer length and don't worry about it.
  12. Mag, type in new jersey vessel bill of sale. Fill all of this in and at the end is a signature for a notary. Usually your bank has a notary and they sign for free. I had this filled out and everything went through smoothly. I also found out the tax on boat sales is only 3% in NJ. Good luck!
  13. Went to NJ DMV last night to register my new purchase. They said its up to the new buyer if they want new registration number or not. Originals can stay on the boat. Thanks for all of the replies!
  14. I'm looking to sell my 1984 Grady White Seafarer. The boat is in the water and I do not have a trailer. If I get a buyer and he drives the boat away on the water, do I take my registration numbers off of the boat?
  15. Chances are, it's not the flapper. Certain American Standard one piece toilets require "special" flush valves. There is a rubber fitting that fits in the hole between the tank and toilet bowl. You have to purchase an American Standard wrench to tighten or loosen the nut that secures this rubber fitting. Last I checked you can't purchase this at HD, only online or from plumbing stores that carry American Standard parts. This rubber fitting lasts about 5 years. The salesmen don't tell you about this when you purchase the toilet.
