    2006 Yamaha AR230 Steering Replacement parts

    fun times, Steering cable seized and snapped the steering shaft inside the steering assembly. So now I am replacing both cables and the assembly. Question. What parts do I buy? Yamaha ($$$$) or another brand ($$)? I've read about Teleflex, but its hard to get a good cross reference back to...

    What's Trending...(online)

    Sure is. It's @robert843 FYI @robert843 the top "glove box" is marketed as a beverage center. Hence why the door folds down to 90° to act as a serving tray. We sure don't use it for that purpose though... who does? We pop the top on our cans or stab a Capri Sun and use all 13 of those cup...

    Florida houses with metal roofs

    Rule #1, warranties protect the manufacturer....not the building owner. Lot's of fine print and hoops to jump through to get warranty coverage. Statistically most roofs are replaced by storm damage, aka "acts of God", before the warranty ever kicks in.

    First jet boat! 2020 195s

    Congrats on the new boat! The absolute first thing you buy should be a Stoltz bow roller (search this site for the correct part #). It will prevent your beautiful new boat from getting scuffed up (badly) by the stock hard plastic roller. Besides that everything else is whatever you prefer...

    Taking a leak in public...

    Some ideas from what I have noticed with my boat so far: Anchor drain fix.. known problem and everyone should check this. Drain plug - clean it up and remove any debris. Get a new O ring, grease, and set it tight for each outing The design - the bilge is set up to drain the engine...

    New 195S

    Thats awesome man congrats. (2019 AR195 Here) First thing you will want to do is replaced that bow roller with a #ULT-4 Stoltz. The stock roller is too hard and will dmg the boat (i did mine before i drove off from the dealer). Second, replace the rear trailer lights and lightbar with LED based...

    Boat Trailer bow roller scratches

    You will want the STOLTZ Ultimate Bow Stop Roller Assembly #ULT-4. I made the mistake of getting the 435 the first time. Had to pay for shipping back and restocking fee(kinda BS) since it never even got mounted. $20 mistake

    Shoreland'r Serious Safety Issue - Check your fenders!

    Interesting. I have not evaluated the actual tires to any great extent. How would I determine the type of tires. Model #s? Or Series Names? Or will it say bias or radial? Simply haven’t looked.

    Home air conditioner.

    Thanks for all the input. This is what I'm talking about. Some say "X" company, others say "Y", it's like searching online. I would go to one site that says "Lennox is the best" and lists Trane at #9, while another says "Trane is the best" and lists Diakin right behind it... It's insane. It's...

    Let's talk WETSOUNDS

    Question I have is where do you want the sound? If it's all about blasting out the back, then go with set up #1, but you'll be lacking sound in the bow. I never did a sound bar and just replaced my cabin speakers with the wetsounds 650's and added an additional pair in the main cabin bringing...

    Why aren't you boating? (A place to brag or vent)

    Would have been beautiful out there today, however wife seems to have developed some form of hypertension and blood pressure was a little alarming earlier in the week. So no boating until she can calm her anxiety about things down a bit. She runs a little high strung most the time anyway...
