View the latest post 2001 396 with mercruiser 8.1s Horizons

Hello fellow boaters...I'm struggling to learn if the starter on my starboard engine rotates in the same direction as the port? My starters are Delco Remy and of coarse they're obsolete with no replacements available. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Regards.

View the latest post 350 Mariner battery shelf

I need to replace the battery shelf. It appears that the old one is decayed and leaving some debris to clog the bilge pump. Has anyone done this ? I assume when I remove the battery boxes there will be some type of brackets fastened to the stringers. With the generator in the way its going to be a stand on your head job. Any suggestions appreciated.

View the latest post 82 Carver 3607 Aft Cabin - Stringer replacement

I have just found out that my 2 main longitudinal stringers are rotted and need replacing. Does anyone have an idea of the cost of a massive project like this?
Any suggestions on who I can get to do this job in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area? The boat is for sale for $39,500.00 so the repair would have to make sense in terms of cost.

View the latest post Fabric Paint interior

8 MORE weeks! I have the 390 CPMY. On the forward berth and the aft cabin there is fabric on the walls. It is a constant issue with mold on the aft cabin, and the forward cabin has stains from the previous owner operating with the portholes open (can't even fathom that one!) Anyway, has anyone ever painted that fabric? I was thinking of a couple coats of KILZ, and then a coat of semi gloss latex paint? Unsure what to do, but we hate the scrubbing needed.

Thanks again! The exhaust hose replacement is completed, I will share the costs as soon as I get the bill and recover from the heart failure!

View the latest post Nav and Anchor Light Wiring

I have a 1999 Carver Voyager 530.
My Anchor/Masthead light has stopped working.
I have power to both the lower helm and flybridge toggle switches but no power at the light pole on the targa bar.
Does anyone know the colour of the wiring for the anchor/masthead light - I don't have enough wire at the top of the targa to pull the wire out to see what the original sheath colour is.

View the latest post Transom Lights

Has anybody added these to a 356? I would like to add them but curious about position. Seems like four would be required but where to put the other 2. Would it be a odd shape if two were in the center of the transom and the other two on the outer sponsons? Or would two be enough?
