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.
