Ebay. It is Chinese, but all solid brass construction. No brand. A nice faucet even though made in China.

The handle comes out with a long hose, the mount can be adjusted up our down. I did disassemble it and cut the height down a bit.
Thanks

The lake finally calmed down. Ever since we splashed it, we've had 3-6 foot waves and small craft warnings. I was concerned for the first ride because of the 10 year old gas that I had pumped out, but could not get all out.

So we took it out yesterday and the starboard engine sputtered and died a few times and I couldn't get it over about 2000 rpm. Pix below

So today I pulled the carb filetr, clean. Pulled the canister filter, clean. Pulled the anti-siphon valve - completely fouled with a grease like substance. The hose at the fitting also had that mung. Cleaned the valve, cut some hose back, flushed the hose with some carb cleaner, and started the boat up. All is well, but alas, windy and waves. So maybe next week we'll try again.

Pix from the first time out on the lake in about 11 years or so.

And finally the Manitowoc unloading stone. I always wondered how they tied off, and we learned yesterday. There's a boom on the front of the boat. One crew member grabs the line, and they swing him out and down to land. Two crew did this. Awesome. Probably not OSHA compliant!

I just love the pictures looking down on the pulpit. It makes me miss driving instantly.
Thanks,

Have had no problems with the boat. Except one that just cropped up. It has a hynautic steering system and the h50 helm pump is leaking. I bled the air off to stop the drip and bought a seal kit.
Wish me luck. Looks like lots of little balls and other parts are going to fall out.
If anyone has rebuild instructions please forward them on.
Thanks

Overdue update.
Last report was on the Hynautic system - I bought the h50 rebuild kit, and took it all apart and rebuilt it. This time though, bleeding the air out only took 50 turns or so.

The boat has been, running fine, etc. The tachs are screwed up, so I need to replace the gage set. I haven't finished the install on the cabin stereo yet, but that's be done shortly.

Other than that, all is still working and working well.
Thanks

Tachs are bouncing, and/or read 2x or 3x the actual rpm. Not bouncing in synch with each other, just random. Sometimes they apparently indicate correctly, but very little.

On the back of the tachometer,you should see 468 cyl screw.Put a screwdriver on and go back and forth between numbers and then set back to 8.I had the same thing going on and I did replace the tachs a year later because they were different from each other.
