Remove Steering Wheel

I am trying to remove the Teleflex steering wheel from my [1989--please use four-digits for years] SPORT 15. I removed the center nut and washer. [The steering wheel] would not pull off [I] tried lubricating: no luck. I tried [using] a rubber hammer and wood: no luck. I have read about a woodruff ke...

The replacement strap whaler sent m...

Removing Surface Rust on Stainless Steel

I bought a 2006 Montuak that spent a few years in Florida. There are small surface rust spots on the Bimini Frame, bow rail bases, and a few other spots.

Give advice to remove surface rust.

What products are used?

Thanks.

1989 Super Sport: tighten forward line holders at bow

I am trying to figure out how to tighten the two stainless "pins" that are on the bow of the 1989 Sport 15. They appear as if you would hang a line on them. They are located below the [combined sidelight and chock] assembly. They are loose and have play in them. It does not appear you twis...

Sport 15 Wood Restoration

I am stripping the seats and console on SPORT 15 using PETTIT "Captain's Varnish 1015." How many coats of the varnish do you recommend?

What sandpaper grit do you recommend using between coats?

Thanks.

SPORT 15 Electrical Connector for Navigation Lamp

I bought a [1989] SPORT 15. The plug for the [aft navigation lamp] and the [lamp] itself are both female ends, and there is no way to plug them to each other. Never seen that before.

Is there a connector manufactured that converts one to a male end so that they can connect?

Thanks

1989 SPORT 15 Cover

Where can I buy a cover made specifically for a 1989 SPORT 15?

I have called some of the larger cover manufactures and all seem to make a universal type cover that will fit but not made to fit a 1989 15 Sport.

Thanks

Re: 1989 SPORT 15 v. SUPER SPORT 15

Thanks jimh. I was able to reach Whaler. They pulled production build sheet. It is a SPORT 15 that apparently had the inside seating converted to SUPER SPORT set up after it was purchased somewhere along the line.

Re: 1989 Yamaha 70-HP

Jim--one more thing: this [1989 Yamaha 70-HP engine] has a oil pump in it for the mixture.

Do you know if the engine has a safety shut-off built in if the pump goes bad or runs out of oil (as opposed to frying itself)?

Thanks

1989 SPORT 15 v. SUPER SPORT 15

I bought a 1989 Whaler that was sold as a SUPER SPORT but I actually think it is a SPORT.

Is there a 100-percent definitive way to tell the difference [between SPORT and SUPER SPORT models?]

I was told seat configuration is the difference.

HIN is BWC3924 C989.
