Thanks...One more thing...

  1. Thanks for all the details on keeping our little beauty on the trailer
    and doing it right.

    One more thing: I need to change the oil. Do you think the drain plug
    is straight in from the bilge plug hole?????NOOOOOOOOO, it is rear
    about .50 and I can't get at it without damaging the bilge hole
    threads. This is driving me nuts because I'm an oil change fanatic.
    Any Ideas. I thought about sucking the oil out by using the swimming
    pool pump; but I don't think that would be too cool. I need a cool
    tool.

    Thanks,

    If your oil hole is off center odds are that your motor mounts may
    need replaced to. One way you can change it is to use a bilge suction
    pump it is a device that sucks it up through the dip stick area. I
    recieved one courtesy of the Mt Dora swim in (coming up in March make
    your plans now) you can get tese through a marine supply center looks
    like a bicycle pump hooked to a gas can. I also have seen a version
    at pep boys that uses a drill and I think Harbor freight has a
    version also.
