Differences between the tow boats

Is there a big difference between aluminum or wood row boats? We've been looking online and in some ways the aluminum is cheaper. What are the pros and cons? Is one more sturdier than the other, or does one hold more weight?

Aluminum is very light, easy to pick up (with 2 - 3 people), low maintenance. You don't have to do anything to an aluminum boat, except spray it off with some fresh water, when you pull it out of the water. Wood, NO, heavy, lots of maintenance - paint, varnish, chance of leaks. Get the aluminum

I have a whirl pool double oven model# rbd245pdq12 an the conto board is out. Can I install a control board from a whirlpool rbd275pdq1


A lot of ovens use the same boards to reduce inventory / spare parts, but it may have different programmes. The only way to check is to look online to see what programme differences (if any) are between the 2 models and then if you already have the board is to physically check and see what differences (if any) are between the 2 boards. Look for similar part numbers or code numbers on the board and connections, plugs, etc If its the same, try it and see if it works.

Can not remove the plate the steering weel sits on


Get under the dash and look at the back. You will see a big nut on the rotary part where the cable feeds into the steering system. Loosen that nut all the way. With the nut loose you can turn your steering wheel until the cable comes out. Then you can remove the steering wheel and the three bolts holding it on.

Towing capacity of a 1.8L Nissan Primera Station Wagon


1500Kg is more likely to be the maximum towing weight.

You should, in theory, be able to launch and recover a boat/trailer of this combined weight ok, but in practise you need to consider how slippery the ramp is and if your front wheel drive vehicle will be able to cope with it.

Use a long strop attached to the trailer and looped around the towing hitch, to launch and recover the boat, so your car stays well away from the water.

You could have some problems getting enough grip with your front wheel drive, when recovering a boat.

I have had to recover my boat from a rocky beach when I couldn't get it back to the launch ramp because of bad weather. I was very thankful that I had a four wheel drive car for that.

What ever you do, ALWAYS plan carefully exactly how you are going to do the launch or recovery and make sure you stop and think about it before doing it.

Regards, Andy

Why are Aluminum Fishing Boats the Best Fishing Boats?


A timber boat is high maintenance. Trust me, I've had quite a few. You're always sanding timber, varnishing timber, repairing timber and lots more. Now if you're happy to be doing that then that's great, but recognize that's the price you pay for a great looking timber fishing boat. And a timber boat is often heavy, and will not last well, particularly if you aren't as diligent with your maintenance as you could be. And they puncture easily when you hit something, as I did last week. But if you're not an enthusiast for working on boats then timber isn't your best choice. What you want in a fishing boat is this. It needs to be tough. It needs to be low maintenance. It needs to be puncture resistant. It needs to last forever without spending hours working on it. It needs to be easily repairable. And it needs to be cost effective. For me the best choice fishing boat is an aluminum fishing boat. Aluminum has properties which make it the perfect material for building fishing boats. It is very light and strong for it's weight, and can be easily welded, so is ideal for both building and repairing. It is extremely long lasting, and is very resistant to puncture. Now of course that doesn't mean it can't be damaged, as it can. But you need to hit it pretty hard to do some serious damage. And if you did that to a timber or fiberglass boat it will be very seriously damaged. And an aluminum boat may just dent, rather than fracture, so you can head right back home with nothing more to show than a dent, instead of possibly be the subject of a rescue from a sinking boat. And it lasts forever if treated right. If you get a great aluminum fishing boat and treat it well you may well find yourself leaving it to your kids. Because aluminum boats are light for their strength they often need a smaller engine, and the engine is probably the highest cost item. A smaller engine costs less, and uses less fuel. And with a smaller engine they are also lighter and easier to handle. And they require little maintenance. Make sure you hose your boat down after a day out, especially in saltwater, and if you drop a lead sinker make sure you pick it up, as it's not great to leave any other metal in contact with aluminum, otherwise you don't need to do too much maintenance at all. More fishing time. And because aluminum boats last so well they also retain their resale value well. I bought a used aluminum fishing boat 2 years ago and it is currently worth a little more than I paid for it. So there's plenty of good reasons to buy an aluminum fishing boat. Unfortunately they aren't cheap if you want to buy a new boat, but for the same reasons I've mentioned above, it's way better to buy a used aluminum boat, as a used boat is usually much cheaper than a new one, and retains it value well. I would never buy a new aluminum boat. So grab yourself a great used aluminum fishing boat and get fishing this summer, it's the best way to get on the water.

Pulling boats


this all depend on where an how far you want to pull the boat. Also the terrain. A lot of hills ect. I would say a small boat no bigger than 16ft. make sure the traier is balanced only load on a concrete ramp. Try not to load on to steep of a ramp. Also try avoid a lot of hills the main difference on trucks and cars among other things is the transmission and the way its geared. Some transmitions even have thier own cooling sytem due to the fact that towing anything tens to put a lot of strain all transmissions.After a while check your tran fluid to make sure it isnt burning. Pull the stick and look at it. if its not the redish color and if it smells burnt i recomend discontinuing towing. Also look into uhual they sold me a hitch for an 85 300zx was perfect. It had all the specs with it.
