Re: 1986 Outrage 20: Water in Fuel Tank

Given the age of the boat and fuel tank, and water in the fuel tank: ⋅ You ought to pull the tank deck cover. Not only do you need to replace the fuel lines (for existing tank or replacement tank), but you need to do an air test. You must determine if the tank itself is leaking, either at ...

Re: 1993 Evinrude 48-HP High-speed Lean: Eventually Solved

OS&U: Congratulations. There is hardly a better feeling than when the old outboard is running well again. So I must tell you my story, and it has to do with your observation that new parts sometime are not functional like we assume they are. My son's 1977 Evinrude 140 (V4) is a very good engine....

Re: Squall 9: Owner's Manual; Sails, Mast

I have a zip file of 47 Whaler Squall drawings that I would be glad to send to anyone who wants it. It covers the Squall info from the original to the final sail configuration (which had a sleeve type sail that slipped over the mast similar to a Laser). It also has drawings of the mast, sprit tubes,...

Re: Identify hull from stencil number

Jim, I agree that the number is likely original and the person who repainted the boat preserved the original number. I have done the same thing to Whaler 13's I have restored. But more eye catching is the paint job. Who would, and why would they paint the transom with a texture?? I can understand do...

Re: Name on side of the boat

I believe one should do whatever makes one happy, since all vinyl letters can be easily removed if the boat is to be sold or you want to change the name. It is nice to have a name that means something to you (the owner, wife, or owner's family). Boat naming can be an artistic endeavor, with colors, ...

Re: Get-home Engine for 17

Transfueler--I believe you have accurately identified the reasonable choices and horsepowers. To bound your choices and confirm, I offer my experience on my 1975 Revenge 19. My boat is heavier and has more windage and hydrodynamic drag than yours does. I have had a 9.9=HP two-stroke outboard since t...

Re: 1989 Evinrude 225 No Spark

For graphic description of these flywheel magnets, I have attached a pic from my nephew's Evinrude 225 (not sure what year it is, but around 1990). It appears one magnet came loose and jammed in between the stator or stationary engine block, then took out the rest like dominoes.

Re: 1989 Evinrude 225

I don't know what the part is you are asking about. OMC sells epoxy for gluing the magnets of the V6 engines. It is P/N 431929. If you need a magnet and epoxy, it is P/N 584304. There are a lot of search results if you Google OMC V6 magnets. Loose magnets apparently are not an uncommon failure after...

Re: Reducing Engine Noise

Back in 1985, I bought a new Evinrude 150-HP V6 for my Revenge 19. After using it for a year, it seemed to be louder than my wife or I wanted, especially if we were sitting down and got the reflected noise from the windshield and dash area in addition to the directly radiated noise. We could not con...

Thank you Jim. I know you love doing this, but it is a lot of work and takes supreme dedication. Us Whaler owners really appreciate what you have done and continue to do. I salute you.
