re: Boat fuel tank problem?? - mohalk on 9/15/17 at 8:54 pm
It sounds like you have a fuel hose leak somewhere between your bulb and the tank. With a full tank, you have some pressure head advantage to keep the motor running and then you're eventually drawing in too much air. I'm not sure what the build quality on the Key West is, or your Suzuki installe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Boat fuel tank problem?? - mohalk on 9/15/17 at 11:13 am
Every marine fuel sender will fail eventually. If you have an access panel in the deck, you should take a look at it. Sounds like your weren't actually out of gas. Maybe you have a pickup tube issue....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Boat Fuel Tank - Pressure Testing - mohalk on 9/7/17 at 10:45 pm
That's good. Filling it any more is really pointless for checking leaks and will likely damage the tank, especially if it's 1/8" thick or less. It's much safer to do a hydrostatic test with a head tube than filling with air. If you over pressurize a pneumatic test, a rupture will be much more vio...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Recovery of sunk boats after hurricane - mohalk on 8/28/17 at 2:18 pm
Sounds like that even though the insurance company is legally required to salvage or remove the boat after they take ownership, they may not put a lot of effort into actually doing that. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Recovery of sunk boats after hurricane - mohalk on 8/28/17 at 12:59 pm
Does anybody have any knowledge of what happens when these huge marinas and boating communities start recovering sunk and damaged boats from a major storm like Harvey? Do the insurance companies coordinate and arrange salvage and auction or is that on the boat owner or marina/property owner? I imagi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (6)
re: Looking to powder coat a boat - mohalk on 8/28/17 at 12:55 pm
5052 aluminum alloy, which is what most small boats are made of, is not heat treatable. I can't say for sure, but the baking process may alter the mechanical properties of the base metal and weld metal. I don’t recommend painting or coating the aluminum. It will last longer if left bare because ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: cajun navy made Drudge - mohalk on 8/27/17 at 9:38 pm
How do I get in touch with the Cajun navy? I don't have a boat but I live in Houston in a central non-flooding location and can offer to try to repair any aluminum hull or stainless prop damage they might sustain so they can keep going. I'm a naval architect but I tig weld aluminum on the side....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Harvey ***Catastrophic Flooding Event*** - mohalk on 8/27/17 at 12:08 pm
I'm on Woodhead St a block south of US 59. Water is flooding the neighborhood streets towards Bissonet like the tax day flood last year, but not quite as bad yet, and saw some big oak tree limbs down in the street. Drainage seems to be good when the rain breaks but water was coming up out of the sto...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: 100K mile maintenance on a silverado - mohalk on 8/18/17 at 1:02 pm
I did it when I bought the truck at 70k, then at 100k, and plan to do it every 50k just to keep an eye on things. It's about $25 a sample including shipping and they get it done in about 2 weeks....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: 100K mile maintenance on a silverado - mohalk on 8/18/17 at 7:27 am
They synopsis is that wear metals and insolubles were very low compared to their averages for similar engines and the viscosity/flashpoint characteristics were still in spec at 12k miles. The oil life computer was at about 15% when I changed the oil at 12k miles, so I think it's pretty accurate....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: 100K mile maintenance on a silverado - mohalk on 8/17/17 at 10:19 pm
I just did mine on a 2011 z71 a few months ago. Engine oil and transmission fluid/ filter and send both of for oil analysis at Blackstone Labs. Both were fine. Changed spark plugs and transfer case oil. You do not need to do differential oil. Coolant changes are every 150-200k. Use a ratchet stra...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Anyone have index annuity with Voya? - mohalk on 12/19/16 at 6:00 pm
Probably less than 10%. I'd agree. It's like receiving a pension for retirement instead of a 401k. The 401k will probably perform a lot better, but the pension takes the thinking and responsibility out of it....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anyone have index annuity with Voya? - mohalk on 12/19/16 at 2:23 pm
No I don't remember what it was called, but it could have been a variable annuity. My point overall here is that they are frequently sold to people who don't actually understand what they are buying and are unaware of the true direct and indirect costs of what they are buying. Many times it's not re...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Anyone have index annuity with Voya? - mohalk on 12/19/16 at 1:35 pm
I read the contract for a Prudential one and the annual fees totaled about 2-3% per year all included. You can debate what the fees are named in the contract but they still exist. Annuities and their salesmen have earned their reputation for being non-transparent with their costs and predatory on...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Anyone have index annuity with Voya? - mohalk on 12/18/16 at 10:53 am
My MIL bought one of these recently. Here's how it works: 1. Drop a large lump sum into the annuity. 2. "Financial advisor" pockets 5-10% commission. 3. You pay them a very large AUM fee for holding your money and additional fees for the index fund they may or may not actually invest your money...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
