    My parts boat 3818-gctid804793

    Every time a 38XX is sold or departs my marina for good I lose hardware. What? Are the 38 fittings getting rare? I am getting tired of this now. This time the big headed screws holding the engine room vent covers went missing. Somebody needed 4 I guess. I keep losing fasteners for the trim and little trim bits. There used to be four '38's, now all have moved on. Is it over or do the '32's need some bits now?

    Good thing is the tabs are working now. By jumping the solenoid valves to test them as Tabman suggested I found a bad valve. I replaced that today. Remarkably easy to do.

    Me thinks you have a resident thief. Chances are it's happening to other residents with similar to boats leaving. It may be relatively minor items but theft is theft and I'd be all over marina management. I know there's always a bunch of foot shuffling and we can't be everywhere, but where it keeps repeating, they need to be more vigilant. They really don't want a reputation as a facility where there is a lack of security.
