Fritz, why do you guys cut out the fish hold? We use ours all the time, if not for fish for dirty shoes and boots. We wouldn't be without it

Good morning Flemming, I cut mine since the battery's would fit in the forward portion, added a wash down in the aft corner with fresh air intake box for the engine, installed a hath under the floor and still have room. My thinking it opens up more potential storage and space options, so let others chime in.

Has anyone ever rebuilt one of the Weber carbs? There is an O-Ring/Gasket that goes under the carb. www.mercruiserparts.com/Merc/MidasImagesNew/COMMON/37889.gif
In the image its item 20 called the "quad ring".
I ordered one of them, but it looks like maybe I should have ordered two - one goes under the spacer plate.
Advice on that??

Part 19 looks like a square bore to spread bore adapter plate, if you have part 19 it looks like two of the crazy o rings are requiered or you could probably use one spread bore gasket and one square bore gasket instead me thinks.

I didnt notice the o ring on the weber carb i have on mine. I guess the previous owner probably dumped the adapter plate when he changed to the aluminum intake manifold because of the clearance to the hatch. I decided to sell the square bore weber carb and replace it with a quadrajet. Better carb by far.....problem is finding a good core to rebuild. I had canadian carburetors find me one and they are a spreadbore so it will match the intake properly without the need for an adapter plate or an o ring.

I have a weber carb for sale! Ran fine and idled down nice and low.

I agree that the space you gain nearly doubles and gives easier access to storage. It also freed up about 20lbs of dead weight. I had kept crabs in there before, but with the engine heat, they quickly died.

Well, I ordered three 140 watt solar panels that were supposed to perfectly fit the roof of the 289 and provide 420 watts of power, but the company instead sent what I think are 120 watt panels that were smaller.
Before the solar panels came, I started replacing the bulk head roof nuts with flush mounted T-nuts. Functionally it makes the roof flat, without nuts sticking up.

Anyhow, I finished the job, even though I won't be needing that real estate with my smaller panels. If I ever get the proper 140 watt panels, having the flush roof will be nice.
