Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone else’s topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when it’s posted at the end of someone else’s topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • Removing my Volvo Penta diesel

    I have twin Volvo penta diesels and the starboard engine has problems so I am going to remove it. The boat is still in it's mooring stall and there is a crane 100 yards from where I tie up to extract the engine. I've done lots of work to these engines but never extracted one. Anyone have any knowledge of the process it will take? Thank you.

        if you have a pure inboard, you can remove the motor without taking the boat out of the water. if you have an I/O, it has to be on the hard

          The boat is a 70's model fiberform. It originally had 454 gasoline engines. Was upgraded to Volvo Penta Diesel's. The starboard engine turns over real slow and will not start. Tried replacing the starter and that did not work. Same problem exists?

                Spoke to a local mechanic here in Ketchikan Alaska and he said if I remove the engine while the boat is in the water once the exhaust y disengages she could go to the bottom? I'm beginning to think we are going to have to put her on land to properly complete this project?

                      Are you pulling the motor just because it's cranking slow, or is there other issues?
                      If ya can't fix it with a hammer,ya got yourself an electrical problem.

                        Sounds like an over hasty decision, just because she is cranking slow ? Have I missed a post about a diagnosis ? Reading on my phone. Not great.

                          What are the problems with your motor.
                          We would only remove the motor if its blown up?
