Identify my boat

I recently aquired a Shovelnose hydro I'm guessing late 60's. Could find no numbers on boat until I started on restore and cut out old flooring and found numbers stamped on the left stringer in rear. Number is M 42171. I don't know anything about the boat at all. Anything you could help me with will be most appreciated.

Engine cranked and ran for a few minutes before starting to lose power. The warning buzzer sounded twice and then the engine cut out. Boat has been in the water all summer.

sadly with the limited information you provided no one can guess at what the problem might be but probably a fuel problem .

My swisher25hp-60 in.cut barely moves going forward

Was it working correctly earlier or is this your initial operation?

According to the product manual for "loss of drive":
1. Bypass linkages in the bypass position
2. Hydro belt worn, damaged, or broken
3. Idler spring loose or broken

1. Make sure that the bypass linkages are in
the drive or engaged position. Located at
the rear of the machine. Refer to decal on
the rear of the unit.
2. Replace Hydro belt.
3. Replace Idler spring

How long do I charge my boat

All depends on the size of the battery and the charger youre using. Standard batteries are 7.2v on these boats pictured. You will have to check the mah which is on side of battery, if its 1800mah and youre charger charges at the rate 500mah you should charge it for 4.3hrs.

I recently bought a 94 3.8L V6 and the OD light started flashing. The car shifts fine. I have noticed a high pitch yet light hum, and have yet to identify the area. Fluid is fine! No burnt smells. After...

Is the car shifting? Only the light comes on? The tach should read 1800 at 60 mph in OD? I think that's right, check yours out. I have a 2000, and it has a terrible noise coming from the rear end, I don't know if it needs oil or what. I haven't gotten to it because of the weather lately.

Can't get to login window

Blue screens are normally critical errors. If you have loaded any new hardware to your computer lately or some software packages you will need to uninstall them.

Try starting windows in safe mode by pressing F8 continuoulsy until you hear a beep. This will start the computer in safe mode and everything will look big on the screen, ignore that for now. While you are in safe mode uninstall anything that you have loaded prior to this error. Be it software or hardware.

If you have not loaded anything recently then try restoring your computer to an earlier time when you know that it was working with now problems.

Once safe mode boots go to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that the computer was running okay. Once the restore has taken place the computer will reboot. If asked what mode you want to start in choose start windows normally.

Hopefully this will help you resolve your problem.

Not reading CD drive

some times the problem is with the windows where some action you've done caused the deletion of the driver of your cd, you could try fix that by restoring your system follow these steps:
1-start menu
4-system tools
5-system restore
from which you chose to restore you system to the recent restore point, if not working try the one earlier and so on untill its OKay.
