    Bill,

    Learned from the school of hard knocks. Too many carb rebuilds and fuel system clean-outs to list here. The old ounce of prevention thing. The older I get, the more I try to avoid unnecessary work

    we have a little boat with a gasoline engine.. somewhere on here I posted that we let it sit for 2-3 years and it cranked on gas in tank.
    (treated with pri-g) boat has now sat again for 2 years. challenges have come our way this summer and no lake trips.. I hope it will crank just as easily next time.

    oh yeah. all gas mentioned above has no ethanol!
    rr,

    To keep from letting the boat motor sit and decay, wallyworld sells an Attwood Universal Dual Motor Flusher, about $13. The suction cup things slide over the water intake and you hook it up to a garden hose, turn on the water and start the engine. Pumps enough water through to keep it cool around idle/fast idle. I've used them and they work pretty well.

    I've got a Sea Ray (17.5 ft) (1996). Hasn't been in the water for a while and needs some work (out drive seals, etc.). But a river trip sounds like fun. Maybe some incentive to get back to work on it. Like you, had some distractions the last few years. It was in need of maintenance when I pulled it out of the water and never got back into it.

    Total cost estimate, somewhere around $500 for parts.
