Re: Open or Closed Cell Foam in c.1979 Boat

Traditionally open celled [materials] will absorb water and get heavy.

Closed cell foam doesn't absorb water and is what you want in a boat floor.

The above is what I have always been told and has been my experience.

Re: Direct fit cooler replacement for a 1987 Montauk

Mark--the original cooler was a 86-quart Igloo Marine series. Igloo modified this design by changing the lid and increasing the size to 94-quart. The width and length are the same as the 86-quart. Owners of classic Montauk's, including me, who have the rod holders and cushions are told when replaci...

Re: After Impeller Change, Gear Case Always in Forward

Drop the lower unit again. Put your shift lever in Neutral and take a pair if vise grips and turn the shift shaft coming up out of lower unit until it is in Neutral. THe propeller will spin free by hand. Fit the lower unit back up without the shaft splines changing position.

Easy-peezy.

[What is] the color of the inside of the hull inside walls?

Thanks
