Hi Steve, MY home port is currently New London, CT USA .  I will be puling the boat out on Wednesday as temps here reach 80F.

My boat is Monalisa and 2 years ago I blew up the block my starboard engine.  I have been searching for a engine that I can afford or maybe another boat.  I haven't decided yet.

Hi Steve,

Nice to meet you. Your boat is beautiful. What a great boat the 45' is.

Impeller -trick for installing

A trick for installing impeller- I place a tie wrap around the blades and tighten it and then place it in my freezer overnight. Just before installing I cut off the tie wrap and the impeller blades remain squished as they are frozen. It slips in easier and they thaw and spread out in a very brief time.
