    I'm sure this question has been asked a million times. The boat has a Jabsco manual raw water head with macerator. What is the advice on using marine grade toilet paper vs. a strict no TP policy? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
    Camper or Marine toilet paper is fine all the time. You can use single ply TP from the grocery store if need be

    Welcome to the club. I don’t have a manual head but on a different boat that did we were careful not to overload it with TP. We always use the individually wrapped stuff from Costco.

    Looks great. Do you know if the boat's stock system has an amp? I'm upgrading the stock AM/FM/CD player to a unit more like yours but need to figure out if I also need to add an amplifier for the boat's six speakers. Thanks!

    Well mine only has a 2.8 Diesel 200hp which is slightly underpowered but economical. 5.7 petrol should be superb

    My latest project-I pulled the carpet out of the cabin and replaced it with flex teak. I was surprised how easy the carpet came out and got it in one piece with little cutting and was able to use it as a template,
    Took a total of 4 hours and 3 beers. I have attached before and after pcs.

    SU's were year 2000 1/2 models. You have an ST

    Excellent. Very nice work and good planing.

    It's a tapered shaft with a key in it. You might need a wheel puller to break it free. Have you tried a little shot of penetrating oil?

    Changed mine last summer and once the nut was off the wheel came off easily.
    There may be a key on the shaft that needs to be level and I think you may a specific tool to do this.
