    gas cap replacement for 2016 22 SLX

    Ours came unchained the first day we went to refill our tank while in our slip (the second day we owned it)... long gone was the shiny new gas cap into the bottom of the muddy Mississippi. As it was a Sunday and our dealer was closed -- and we were expecting thunderstorms so I didn't wan't a...

    Trouble with Garmin Striker 4

    I realize this thread is quite old, but did you ever get this sorted dmhflash? We've never had luck with ours since we bought it almost two years ago, and it has just gotten progressively worse. We are also in WI, and we keep our boat in the water in our slip, so we thought perhaps it was just...

    Porta-potti

    I can concur with ktowntn about the Cleanwaste dry toilet. It's awesome... and everyone cleans their own mess, so to speak. The individual toilet packs come with the main waste bag with the absorbent powder in the bottom, a zip lock bag to place that bag into when finished, a wet handwipe...

    Carl Wagner (CWAG911)

    Gone From My Sight I am standing upon the seashore. A ship, at my side, spreads her white sails to the moving breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. I stand and watch her until, at length, she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and sky...

    Carl Wagner (CWAG911)

    Even if Carl was given a 10-20% chance, someone has to be within that percentile group of survival. I am praying and believing that Carl will be included within that group. I offer up my prayers for Carl's healing, and for a peace which surpasses all understanding for Carl and family.

    What did you name your boat?

    Thank you, Link. I understand about the news; I've just stopped turning on the television for anything more than my local news and weather forecast in the morning.

    What did you name your boat?

    Thank you, again. I have to say that most of my real gifts/talents in life aren't terribly practical for making a living, but I do take some joy in utilizing them. :)

    Aww, thank you. That is very kind of you to say.

    What did you name your boat?

    As I live on a back slough of the upper Mississippi River, the name Sister Belle seemed fitting. However, there is a (rather sappy) backstory to why my boat is named after (and has a photo of) a doll... especially given that I am not a "doll" person. I will share the link to a tribute I wrote...

    Mercury Throttle Control Tensioning

    Glad to be of service. It is Pixie Dust well utilized... I understand what you mean about the frustration surrounding lack of follow up posts on many websites/forums... Fortunately, I've not found that to be the case here. (Nor do I want to be a contributor to that frustration, either.)

    Mercury Throttle Control Tensioning

    Not that I would expect anyone has been sitting on the edge of their seat breathlessly waiting for my follow up, but perhaps this will help someone else at another time... (especially since the tech at my dealership seemed to be clueless). I actually received the information from a seller on...

    USB MUSIC using Kicker system

    In what format is your music on the flash drive? IIRC, the music must be in either WMA or MP3 format to be read natively via the USB drive on Kicker systems. Also, many sound system/head units necessitate that your flash drive be formatted as FAT32 rather than NTFS. Lastly, some USB ports are...

    Mercury Throttle Control Tensioning

    Bummer... that is just a reflection in the picture. Contortionist positions and sweltering conditions were not my friend. :/ Our only Benny dealership seems to be a bit clueless, so I've spent hours searching online in the interim. It appears that Mercury came out with a service bulletin back...

    Mercury Throttle Control Tensioning

    I'll make my next trip out there with my flashlight, reading glasses and practice my yoga contortions to take another look. Ah, the joys of getting older... Thanks for your idea (as well as responding in my other cross-posted thread); I'll post back either way (as I'm thinking I'm not the only...

    Mercury Throttle Control Tensioning

    Our Benny has a 2018 90 elpt EFI Mercury motor, and the throttle control tension/friction is far too loose. We didn't receive any documentation from the dealer with our boat last year which explains "where" to adjust the tension. I searched online, but almost everything pertains to Yamaha. I...

    What to do about a speedometer

    Have fun! It was nearly empty when we went past there yesterday morning, but literally jam packed (largely with houseboats) when we returned. Glad we elected to head out to a very small sandbar in a wildlife preserve area, as there is realistically only room for one other boat there.
