this is my second repair in 15 years of owning this boat, the bilge blower bit the dust.
Took 5 minutes to remove from the transom, I bet it will take a hour to put the new one in. And look at the butt connectors , this is OEM, WTF , in a boat? This was a $26k boat in '95.
O well. My iPhone was used for pandora radio all day, the only pics were from the Daughter.
Yep, the Daughter and SIL's wine and beer googles. But hey, Vicki looks happy.
Pretty much just drove around the lake, and stopped and floated to cool off. Great day though!
A FYI, the bilge blower is used to remove gas fumes that may have Accumulated in the bilge of the boat. Either during refueling, or just after sitting for a while. I also use it when idleing along, at less than 2000 rpm. The engine cover may also be raised to allow fumes to escape. My boat is a IO (inboard/outboard) the engine is inside, the drive unit is outside. I'll take some pics tomorrow of the blower install, and what the engine looks like.
What day would be complete without a Grandson picture. Today was his 7th day in the boat. I really can't believe how good he's doing. I think I've heard the words "papa billy watch this" at least a 1000 times. It never gets old!
