I'm a bit nervous so bare with me. As a new member I was asked to introduce myself to the group so I hope this is the proper location for do that.
Name: Leigh Saari
Address: Sechelt, B.C., Can.
Boat: 1977 CHB Tricabin named 'UNTIED II'.
We (my wife Anita and I ) bought the boat in 2009 and kept the name because it suited us to a tee. Our plans since we retired is to wander the B.C. Shoreline and visit some of the coast that I was brought up on as a kid living in logging camps. At present we are restoring and repairing (does that sound familiar?). I have recaulked the teak decks and replaced 2 sliding windows and the walls they were in. Also removed all the paint from the window,door,and bright work and am contemplating using teak oil because varnish is to much work and 3 coats of Sikkens Cetol was a big disappointment on the bright work.
I found this forum while looking for an answer to a problem I just got yesterday. I was trying to stop the FL120 and the elec stop button did not shut down the engine. I finally manually pulled the kill switch lever. The start button works but both stop buttons do not. How do I trouble shoot this problem. The engine is Ford Lehman 120 and the electric kill switch is EK29 hardware kit. The only thing that comes to mind that might have caused the problem is that I stop the engine from the upper helm and it took me a 1/2 min to get to the lower helm to shut off the key. My knowledge of electrical is very limited so any help would be well received.
