Are these your basic take-off-their-clothes-in-a-smokey-room strippers or are they the much more classy pole-dance strippers? And even more importantly, in this day and age of increased restrictions, do the strippers in this particular hole offer lap dances?

Because if they do it could explain why Mark seems to hang around in his boat down there a lot.

But regardless of which type of strippers they are or the services they offer, I'm betting that RTF will come up with a meaningful and insightful video clip illustrating this particular "stripper hole."

Skipping spell check could get a guy beat up, I'm thinking.

Back to the sea strainer...that was this thread, I think...a tip I got here: remove that plastic sight glass and soak it in vinegar and it will be clear again. Mine were BLACK and now I can see.

Not gonna help 45 with the fist fight......

I may regret this, but just what does "stripper hole" mean over there?
Looks like a lot of boat; like having get home power. Make sure that strainer is not typical of condition. Careful inspection and survey.

Greetings,
I THINK, at least I HOPE, what Mr.45 was alluding to was an area of particularly good fishing in which to catch striped bass and NOT what he typed in reference to the two young ladies sitting on the foredeck. Good lord, how to phrase this in a genteel manner....

When the correctly spelled wrong word is used spell checker won't catch it. Although it may have caught goffy.

Good Deal Dan, it could be just the picture... But it looks like the forward inboard mount has shifted off from where the paint was also, Some boats are very tender to misalignment while other boats are like tanks, I have seen engines that were just about ready to fall off the stringers before they showed any signs of a problem, its winter, its cold, engine mounts have a tendency to vibrate loose and shift some under load, I don't know what transmission you have but if its a Borg Warner Velvet Drive CR2 series, The reversing plate is hard to come by and very expensive if you can find one @ all, If I were you I would do a real good visual inspection of the mounts and make sure that the prop shaft turns free and easy and throw a wrench on the mount bolts to make sure they are tight, If any mount bolts can be tightened check the shaft alignment, The lazy mans test is to spring out the boat real good and have someone shift from forward to reverse and throttle up a bit and see whats up. now I know that I am not you and could be totally wrong about this issue so if I am totally wrong I would gladly buy you a beer if you come through Beaufort NC any time in your travels, good luck / Craig

Thanks Craig for the comments... we will certainly do a double check when we are next on the boat. It is always great to have cruisers looking out for each other!

Its been out there for a long time and no takers and i wonder why. I'm going to have a mechanic check out the mechanicals before i do anything. Better to spend a few bucks now than a lot of bucks later.
That get home gimmick was a 2500 dollar option in 1979. Seems to me there was a fuel crunch back then and people were scared that diesel fuel would hit a dollar a gallon soon so companies were marketing fuel miser boats. I know that the Costa Mesa and the Santa Anna De Fever yards both had get home options with the Costa Mesa yard opting for a hydraulic get home system and Santa Anna opted for the electric. I'm really curious to see how well it works.

Boy some posters sure enjoy misspelled words. Gonna....oops....Guess I'm should do that more often to insure everyone is properly entertained
