Cholla Bay 4 Life
I'm a lucky guy... I bought a 25yr old boat which is generally a no no or at the very least a tank replacement HOWEVER, once I read that Seaswirl puts POLY tanks in their boats I knew this boat was meant for me! No worry about RUST, ever! More than I can say for Alec Baldwin... Polyethylene is essentially chemical resistant and to my knowledge does not have a shelf life. Plus one for that headache of a situation.So Joe................
Some other major fucked up shit you can plan on dealing with relating to fuel issues will be as follows:
The gasoline in Arizona has alcohol in it and here in Yuma the pump "says up to 11%" of that brainless tree hugger climate change shit as well as a shitload of fucking water just to rub the rip-off in. Think your Jap outboard can handle it??.......NO! Check your fuel/water filter every time you head out!
When I started noticing small chunks of sticky black debris in the small fuel filters on the motors I started freaking thinking all of the internals made of so-called "rubber" were deteriorating. Thanks to Allah it wasn't. It was all of the fuel hoses into and from the tank thru the filters and finally to the motors. So-called automotive grade fuel lines/hoses get melted from the inside by our Arizona gasoline.
Now consider that the PP pangas almost all run Yammies to include 115's similar to mine, yet never have an issue even though I don't run them with dirty raggedy old t-shirts draped over the engine covers. The reason being that the overpriced Pemex has no alcohol in it! So when I was filling my 150 gallon tank here in Yuma all I was doing was screwing up my fuel system. So nowdays, after draining the tank and flushing it THREE TIMES, I only use Mexi gasolina now.
During the tank draining here in Yuma I noticed a shit load of reddish brown silt being pumped out when the tank was almost empty. That stuff turns out to be powder like silt that is in the big underground tanks here in Yuma. I was at the point that I had to change the fuel/water separators after each run and sometimes at sea! Try that game with six foot swells and filling the filters canisters with gas in order to prime the system!
As for the check valves to the lines exiting the tank, all were gooped up with a reddish sticky kind of crap that I finally identified as the "ring free" additive that Yamaha said was an essential requirement. That stuff breaks down and gets hooked up with the water in the AZ gas and causes the steel balls in the valves to get gooped up stuck and stop doing the simple job of closing off the system when the fuel demand stops.
So anyways, I'm-a root'n on Putin!
In regards to Russia. Hopefully you're kidding. If not then I completely disagree. I hope as many Russians are killed as possible. Fuck Russia!!! I don't understand what all this From US with LOVE for Russia bullshit is! All these people spewing Russia talking points don't have any understanding of history or context. All these people yelling about their rights being infringed because they had to wear a mask or stand 6 feet from someone. Go live in Russia and tell me how you like all that UNOBSTRUCTED FREEDOM!!!! I mean as long as you're white and straight you have some freedom there. As long as the government says it's ok. This is literally a war over freedom. I don't give a fuck how imperfect Ukraine is or what you think is on Hunter Bidens laptop or how mentally ill you are, Putin is a piece of SHIT!!! PERIOD! FUCK THAT GUY. FUCK RUSSIA. FUCK COMMUNISM.
Hey JJ, aren't you the one always bitching about COMMIFORNIA??????????? And then you go and root for Putin?! The only good thing about this war is that we get to see how decrepit and old the war systems are for Russia. All THERE THEYRE (their) (PECABOO YOU FUCK YOU, I see you STEVE M) equipment is from 1977, poor logistics, poor communications, poor field command. The only thing this war is showing is A. How fucking out of his mind Putin is, B. How completely decrepit and inept his army is. That's good news for the future IF THIS FOOL DOESN'T DROP AN A BOMB in the next few weeks...
I will leave this here for anyone that likes to look at DEAD RUSSIAN SOLDIERS (kids) TWICE A DAY LIKE ME....
