    I don't see a need for a fuse between the panel and battery switch. If you want some more safety inline you can add a 30amp breaker.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    Now that's a nice upgrade. 100 extra ponies will really help that cruising speed! Love me some Etec torque!

    2004 150 VMAX 2 stroke overheating

    Change the entire pump kit (including housing and SS cup). While your in there inspect the driveshaft and prop shaft seals. Check your poppet hose and poppet housing before ordering parts. A lot of times the housing corrodes and swells and the hose is hard and brittle. I have had to replace quite a few. If you haven't done thermostats in a while, this is a good time to replace both. You can test them in boiling water with a gauge if you want or just replace with OEM new for reassurance.

    Rigging Hose Pictures

    Lots of boats have their rigging tube similar to your second pic. Have someone hold it there and then trim and check. Most boats that have their tubes run in the splash well normally have a lot of setback so you would have to experiment and see.

    Does your grey hose have anything written on it? It has lasted this long, you may want to buy the same hose again. There are a lot of different hose brands. Make sure you buy A1-15 rated hose. I just used sierra hose on a Jon boat restore. It was easy to work with and seems good quality.

    SIMs is correct. Yamaha OEM fuel line is 5/16". Most people change out to 3/8" cause its easier to find. I always buy mercury OEM primer balls. They have two check valves apposed to one in a Yamaha ball. You can clamp 3/8" fuel line onto a 5/16" barb no problem. Also your ball should be before your separator to be able to pull fuel from the tank and fill the separator. It should also be at an almost vertical position if you can. https://www.amazon.com/MERCURY-Primer-Inside-Diameter-8M0061876/dp/B001HBSXUK/ref=sr_1_5?crid=3EJX6KOJJVOW1&keywords=mercury+primer+bulb&qid=1583784112&sprefix=mercury+primer+b%2Caps%2C170&sr=8-5

    2200 TE Questions

    There is no difference between a standard HPDI and a Vmax HPDI except shaft length. The powerheads are exactly the same. 2.6L HPDI's are quite reliable (150-200). 3.3L models (200 - 300) got a bad wrap especially on big offshore boats, mostly due to slow trolling (they don't like it). Big blocks need to be run hard to clean them out. They also had an oiling issue on the series 1 but that was fixed very early on. All HPDI's need clean fuel, good oil and require religious servicing (all filters changed every service). 250 Pro XS is a nice motor. Its also direct injected so same goes for it... Clean fuel, good DFI oil and religious service.

    Bring back the Lappy

    I miss my old boat dearly. I will have another one someday. Maybe build one for the kids...
  12. Decent deal for those that have to have a fourstroke.

    What did you do to your boat today?

    I would definitely go side console. I have had both. Much more room in a side console.

    Cheap boat jk

    It must have been a navigational hazard. Fill that OMC with diesel and let it sit for a month. It may just break free and fire up! LOL

    Random power loss- Outboard only

    Kill switch or key switch would be the first things I'd look at if you indeed feel its spark loss. Did you maybe bump the key and apply choke? It will fall on its face and die if you hold the choke
