Mini Boat Madness

Mini Boat Madness Goes Simple!

Welcome to the new Mini Boat Madness forum. We've completed the conversion and migration to our new forum platform, Simple Machines Forum. Our primary goal was to increase site speed and member accessibility. The original software just wasn't living up to our needs, so we switched. Early testing has shown a dramatic increase in site speed and we hope it stays that way.

MBM is a work in progress and will always be a living, evolving forum. As you check out the new format, please don't hesitate to let us know about any problems you might find. The database conversion was not without issue, so let us know about any bugs!

All currently registered members will be receiving an email containing a new password. Unfortunately, password migration was not possible and new ones are the solution. Hopefully, you won't find this too much of an inconvenience.

Signatures may also need to be updated. It appears that the formatting from the old forum is not compatible with SMF.

Thanks to our growing membership for the continued support. We hope this new software will allow us to continue growing for years to come.
Bolting aluminum

Working on some steps for the Ocean Express trailer . It has steps in front and back of each fender that have carpet covered wood . I am replacing the wood with diamond plated aluminum . I am now to the point of bolting the diamond plates to the trailer . I'm trying to remember which metal not to use with aluminum . Was it not to use stainless steel bolts and aluminum ?

After searching the web , I found several methods to try and one that actually worked .
"Rem" oil (w/ teflon), similar to WD-40 but made for fire arms .
Spray the residual adhesive and let stand for a minute , wiping any run off .
Then use a plastic card of your choice to scrape the gum off , wipe the card clean after each pass .
Push or pull in one direction on

It should fit your current outboard .  You just need to know which hp motors are in the same size group as your 40hp .  The seller should be able to supply measurements for you to confirm fit to your unit .  Besides the power trim unit you will need two relays and a switch ( Depending on the trim unit will require a two or three wire harness type ).

Yes, this product is huge in the automotive industry. It's everything they claim it is. The only downside I've noticed is it's difficult to keep clean as it kind of has a rubbery feel so dust and debri sticks to it unlike a painted surface. It's not bad it's just the only downside I have noticed. My friend here in Minneapolis runs a business professionally applying this, primarily

Hush the Magic 520! on August 19, 2014, 06:43:02 AM
Our new 520 sterndrive has been a resounding success since it was introduced one year ago at  the LOTO (Lake of the Ozarks) Shootout. It’s become even more popular since the release of a  Joystick Piloting for Sterndrives – Axius option for selected models fitted with the Bravo Three XR sterndrive. Formula boats have been early […]

The official start of Summer is June 21. If the volume of blog comments, voice mails and prop orders are any indication, the summer boating season has been under way for a good month already. I, like you, am ready to get some boating in and enjoy the warm summer weather.  And – just in […]
