    Should I Forget About Running Wet Stacks?

    "Brand New" isn't what I'm looking for. Just thinking about keeping 'em somewhat noticeable. I clicked on the link (you provided) and all I got out of it so far is the guy running a thermostat.

    estimated cost for new floors ?

    Cavitation Plate Lockout Handle

    The lockout handle that allows you to take your foot off the cavitation peddle does not work . i think i needto open up the unit and inspect but not sure if i have to release the springs for the cavitation plate. I've had this boat since 1978. Never had to mess with cav plate.

    Center Hole Drain Plug 1972 Sanger

    I've replaced the the outside drain plugs (1 inch) but can't find a center replacement plug which is slightly bigger on a '72 Sanger Bubble Deck. Center plug is working but the rubber shows cracks when tightening. Lol. I'm sure alot of guys wish this was their only problem ! Lol
