OC thank you again. I have yet to do this myself but getting better! Mine seems to be the same setup pull 2 bolts and then the pump is exposed. One while leaving the hoses on! Are you saying to get the cap heads for the bolts or the cover?

It's a small world no matter where you are. I've lived in Windsor my entire life with family living in Kingsville for some 45 years as well.

Not really a big advantage over the bolts as a ratchet with extension works fine on the bolts. For me, I see a big advantage on the cover. Just went and checked my new spare pump. It has cover bolts. The original spare had screws that I changed. If you have bolts in the cover, don't bother changing them to cap head screws.

The 26 ft yacht I used to tow all over NZ's North Island was about 2 tonne (4,400lb) all up. Wow..! You wouldn't tow that rig around a hilly country, for sure.
My 30 feet boat is weighting 6 tons (empty). With 150 gal of water, around 500L of diesel, all our stuff and my fat ass I guess it is around 7 to 8 tons, the heaviest being the wine bottles we need to stay alive during our cruises

Haven't been there this spring. I saw you in the fall parked out by the road. Paul and Mark do a fair bit of work for me. Paul does all my wood and Mark the rest. They are a great group of people.
Where do you float up here? I'm on Pike Creek .

mbevins. As we are so heavy and with full length keel we have to use a mobile lift. hence St Clair. Jose has done work as well as Kurt an Mark as well. All first rate and no complaints. We are based in Leamington and do most of our boating on Lake Erie and as yet have not been up your way but maybe next year!

We flip between Erie and Huron so we'll keep an eye out for you. We also have a place on the Caloosahatchee so if I see a small tug in my neighborhood I'll give a yell.

Hi and congratulations to you for a new tug,


Check if there is any corrosion in the pump or else that breaks the impeller. If no problem could be a "globe" impeller will help to withstand better. This impeller can run dry for up to 15 minutes. I hope you get the problem solved ...

North Baltic. Hello to you. There have been lots of reviews of these. Not too many good in view of their expense. Do you have any info on the "new"ones?

Tootles - What do you mean by... "There have been lots of reviews of these. Not too many good in view of their expense."

Have the reviews shown that they wear out too fast in relation to expense? Or, are those impellers not as efficient for moving fluid??

Seems to me that if an impeller can last longer for sure (especially when occassionally running dry) that cost would need to be astronomical to override peace of mind and actually realized security.

I agree the principle is great but reviews and talking to mechanics they say they do not seem to last any longer than regular ones! Very disappointing.

Impellers are wear parts, here the globe wheels are about the same price as jabsco, sherwood etc. I know them on the machines used on the authorities machines that require special reliability, no information on how often to change.

How many hours you can run your generator without the problem of the impeler breaks down?
