I don't understand how this relate to Ecommerce Websites, but here is the answer:

c*c-b*b=a*a
The answer is the root of a
(100*100)-(50*50)=7500

### Why does my depth reading suddenly change in the middle of the ocean

If the sudden changes occures while the boat is plning, the changes are due to the passing of disturbet, turbulent, air bubbled water under the boat.
If they happen while the boat is still, probabily you detect some fish or other sea-life...

### Where is the serial number located on my 13 foot - 1976boston whaler boat?

I have a 2014 Boston Whaler 15 Super Sport and a 1986 SuperSport 15 before it :>)

There are two numbers. One is in the rope/anchor locker at the bow of the boat engraved on a riveted aluminium plaque. This is the identification and mold number done by Boston Whaler which also dates the boat if you write in to BW..

There is often a second number engraved into the starboard stern of the boat just above the waterline. I think this is a government registration number.

Can I suggest you bookmark this site

http://continuouswave.com/whaler

and also the Boston Whaler Facebook page. It is run very well by a guy called Jeff Rohlfling. The knowledge there is incredible, whether it is engines, props, paint or models, plus fab pictures of Boston Whalers in their natural habitat. Everything from 13s to the other night at 45 foot Conquest with 4 engines totalling 1,400hp!

### Steering on starcraft fishing boat

Some one has assembled the rack to the wrong side of the steering wheel shaft, OR put the cable down the wrong side of the boat, OR switched from a pivot steering anchor to a transom mount anchor (you would have had a drag link left over.)

### An easy way to install the starter

Hello, I learned a trick from putting in a boat starter on a cabin cruiser. Not sure it will help you, but here it is. I used a rope around the starter to hold it up while I tried to start a guide bolt in. It took enough weight off the starter for me to get a bolt started.

Once I had 1 bolt started, it carried the weight and I could juggle the starter into position. On my boat, I used the exhaust manifold to tie off one end of the rope. You may have to back off a transmission bell housing bolt to do the same.

Or you may be able to wedge a piece of wood from the floor to under the starter to help with alignment and weight. You may need enough extensions to reach from the bolt on the starter to the front of the engine, about 36 inches.

Be sure to position your wheels to allow for clearance under the starter, as tierods can get in the way.

### My pcb board was unfortunately touched by soltwater [canon mf 4122]

If I had a nickel for every one that I've told not to take their printer to the beach, or not to take it fishing in the ocean, I'd be rich.
Salt water is very corrosive. So take your printer this one time out on your boat and toss it overboard. If you tie a rope to it you could have an anchor.

wrap a rope around its leg and throw it off the back-make sure you hold onto rope tightly-you now own a new anchor! lol

### Wiring two circuit pull switch boat lights

3 terminals.. 1 power input & 2 x outputs

Main positive goes to 1 terminal = power in to switch.

The anchor goes to another terminal = power out from switch to anchor

3rd terminal is another output for lights/anchor.
