Common Questions:

What’s the latest on fuel vibes?

A: For some time we have had to settle for 89, 91 or 93 | 10% blended gasoline.

A company called “Fastrac” has entered the retail market with a product that is virtually methanol or alcohol free.
However, as good as it sounds, this fuel is very “dry”, which means low machine oil content.

Another product has recently entered the market called 91 Octane Recreational Fuel. Many marina’s now carry it, but it to is “dry”

So, to solve the problem we recommend Mercury Quick Clean or suitable product be added at every fill up.  The product removes gums and varnishes, cleans fuel injectors, improves lubricity (lower “dry” effect), removes and helps to prevent carbon build up on

piston rings and cylinders.

What products are good?

A: The following products work effectively in pursuing anti-molecular destabilization to a point, while providing adequate fuel stability, system cleanliness and lubrication.
Sta-Bil Original With Suspension/Binding Additive
K-100 fuel additives
Mercury Branded or equivalent water separating fuel filter assembly.
These are now available in a larger format for problematic fuel systems.
Lucas fuel  enhancement products for methanol.

NEVER add dry gas to your boat’s fuel system.

How are jobs scheduled?

Jobs and shop workload is scheduled in the order received on a first come first served basis. This is why we require 2 weeks notice for “out of storage” requests.

What’s the best way to wake up my fuel system in the Spring?
Add a high quality fuel system cleaner to the fuel system and agitate the fuel tank.  This can be accomplished by rocking the boat while on the trailer or shifting from side to side if in the water. After this procedure is completed, allow the fuel tank to stabilize, about 20 minutes will do. Next, run the boat for 30 minutes or more. After this period, shut down, follow manufacturers recommended procedures and change the fuel filter. Your now ready for the season.

What single thing could I do to improve my boats overall performance?
We get asked this question all the time. The best, single, most important thing you can do is have good canvas. Your boats covers or canvas are the first line of defense against wear and tear. Be sure to have canvas that breaths as well as shed water. Also, routinely  re-water proofing is a must. We recommend acrylic fabric from Sunbrella and the use of 3M Scotch Guard for continued water proofing.  Also, if you own a bow rider, your canvas should be over shield with a positive physical connection to your bow cover to prevent centerline leakage.
