150 SPORT Bow Rail Mod

I have a 2008 150 Sport with a full bow railing, all welded construction. It's really nicely made and great for safety, but getting off the boat when it's beached bow in is difficult. I'm considering cutting the railing in two places, either on the starboard side near the bow or the very front part ...

Re: replacement steering wheel

I changed [the steering wheel] on a 2002 130 Sport. The essential requirement is a 3/4-inch tapered shaft with a keyway. Getting the old wheel off might be trouble. Use a wheel puller and plenty of PB BLASTER or other similar product. Something like this will fit: https://www.amazon.com/Amarine-made...

Re: 2003 Yamaha F225 with 900 Hours

I have the same rig, only 2004 vintage. The above comments are right on point but there's another thing to check- corrosion of the block at the thermostat. My port engine corroded through the block, squirted salt water into the air intake and I needed a new powerhead. Be sure to pull the tstats and ...

Re: Sapele and Mahogany Lumber Source, Uses

I used 13/16 sapele for the seats on a 13 ft. Found it a bit bouncy so I put a piece of it about 2in wide, on the bottom of the seat, to stiffen it. Glued and screwed it. Solid as a rock.

Re: c.1970 13-footer Winter Project

If you can get the stenciled number from the inside of the transom, contact customer relations at Whaler and they will provide the history on the boat.

Re: 2004 130 Sport: Relocating Battery

I have a 2002 with a Suzuki 30-HP engine. I relocated the battery to the port side under the stern seat. The Suzuki engine had long battery cables, sufficiently long so I didn't need to modify them. [I] enclosed the cables in a corrugated plastic cover from the engine to the seat. I also added a ter...

I've used a vibrating sander - one from harbor freight. Gets into tight spots.

Re: Non-skid mold for deck repair

I'm restoring a Boston Whaler boat that has the same non-skid which is damaged. Checked with Gibco Flex Mold: they don't have anything. I went to Michael's and bought flex mold latex. Found a good section of the floor. Sprayed the non-skid with PVA on top of car wax. Taped off an 18-inch by 12-inch ...

Re: Gel Coat Patch Paste

I just refinished an 81 with the Spectrum desert tan. I thinned it with styrene and sprayed it using a Preval sprayer. Came out great. I built up the area with the paste and finished it using the sprayer. After compounding and polishing it looked like new. Might be worth considering.

Great info thanks. I've been looking for a paint to use but nothing matches. What's the smallest quantity that they'll mix and sell?
