Thanks for sharing. No one is perfect but many of these issues are so obvious--no excuses! I have certainly made mistakes before, but I always do my best to research before I perform work. Unfortunately, for all the good the Internet offers it has created "information overload" with a lot of contradiction. You have to sift through the garbage and determine what is the "truth".

No 7 on the first page, Nasty Diesel Leak. There are a lot of boats that have squeeze bulbs for bleeding the fuel systems. I never knew the bulbs were an issue.
