    Club Cod Comp November 17th.

    I am fishing Andy's Comp tomorrow with my father. We are fishing on a charter boat for a change as my father has been ill and needs a bit of cover atm and my little boat does not cut the mustard this time of year. So I will see some of you at weigh in tomorrow evening. Good luck all.

    Where to keep my boat?

    I keep mine on a trailer at Rockley boat park, you also have the option to dry stack it there. To keep it on a trailer in the yard which is secure and has slipway access around £1500 per year. You can ring security to get to your boat out of hours as long as you have made arrangements beforehand. However there is over night berthing on the water for those early morning get a way's and late coming back.

    Best hand held vhf ??

    I use the Standard Horizon HX870E Handheld Vhf with DSC as aback up. I've had it almost 2 years, I keep it in my go bag. I've not been out this year, but this reminded me to check it and its still at almost full charge. Well over 6 months since I last checked it. Paid about £200.00 for it as it was DSc and GPS built in. I think its been replaced by the HX890 now.

    We thought your new love was all the bacon you 2 ate in the café that week. I might need to fit a couple of private booths in for date nights!

    Aux flush

    As soon as I put the boat back on the trailer I flush my main engine (no aux) At Rockley they have a good supply of water and muffs, but I carry a hose and flush connector just in case they cant do it for any reason. The salt water is not great to have sat in there but its also any sediment that can get caught inside the cooling chambers and block ports that is the real worry, Especial as the water can be very shallow in Poole some times when your heading back in its easy to scope a load of mud up into your engine.

    Hydraulic tilt and trim. Oil leak

    Nice Job! I'm glad the manual was off use to some one. If it helps squeeze another couple of seasons out of the engine it will be worth the trouble to take it apart. Mike

    Hydraulic tilt and trim. Oil leak

    I'm not sure if it will help but I have a full Mercury workshop manual for this engine it also covers all others mercury 2 strokes from 1970 I think. I bought it when I had a 1988 115 merc 2 stroke for fault finding and it came with a manual for each 2 stroke model merc made. I can zip it up and email it across if it helps with servicing and checking part numbers. Send me a pm with your email if you would like it sent across. Mike

    Hydraulic tilt and trim. Oil leak

    water and oil seeped in while at anchor and all you can see is the oil that has separated? makes sense and may explain the problem with the tilt/trim if its low on oil.

    Hydraulic tilt and trim. Oil leak

    Is it an auto lube 2 stroke with internal oil reservoir? If so I would assume the 2 stroke oil would not be the same as the hydraulic oil in the tilt/trim rams? Possible its an overflow for the pre mix tank and its vented internal to stop any spillage? Your rams for the engine will normally have a way to release the fluid from them, this is encase the motor packs up or gets stuck so you can drop the engine back down, maybe its something to do with this? It would normal be a sump bolt with o ring like your gear box oil bolt. check to see if it has one located some where else. Mike
