Working on a 305 in a 1981 criss craft boat, owner of the boat didnt open the valves in the hull to let the lake water in and up to the impeller pump located on the front left side of the engin.

Looking to buy used is 98 yamaha gp 800 93hrs. limited,the other is95 seadoo gts580cc 177hrs.what should the compression test reading be and what else should i check?

For a motor to run the compression needs to be over 110 PSI. The normal compression will be between 130 PSI and 175 PSI . What is important is that both or all three cylinders be with in 5 to 10 PSI of each other. If one cylinder has much lower compression than another it is an indication that motor work is necessary to fix the imbalance. With older boats it is always a good idea to pull the motors and replace the crankshaft end seals. Also it is not a boat if it does not float. Inspect the hull for damage, cracks , holes, bashes/bruises, these will need to be repaired. Figure out how to look into the intake grate and inspect the impeller and mated surface for nicks damage. Seadoo's have a replaceable plastic ring around the impeller ($80) that is easily torn up by rocks and debris. If the gap between the impeller and the ring is wide you will lose significant thrust. Only your own sweat equity will make a boat needing a lot of work a good deal. Happy Riding.

I have a new unit to fit. Can the transducer be mounted inside the hull? It currently gives me strange readings whether inside or out but we are on dry land - if that makes a difference

there are two kinds or transducers out there on the market --- some that can be mounted inside the hull and others that need to be mounted on the outside of the hull, the instruction manual should indicate which transducer you have. AND YES the transducer will only work when you are on the water --- the readings on land are no good and it will not work. install it on the boat and then test the unit on the water. BUT if you do want to test the unit before you install it to the boat you can always take the boat out to a lake ( or wherever ' on the water ' ) and mount the transducer to a long dowel or stick and hang it over the edge of the boat and this will work fine for testing.

I have around 1988 mariner 40hp new water pump still doesnt pump much water with hose hooked to it . u can put in the lake it works fine . whats the prolbem

The volume of water is less on the hose and water pressure in the lake is higher. You are also getting a different operating angle on the boat, because the transom is the low end of the boat.

The cuffs are just for testing and many of the new ones will indicate that you do not run the engine above idle with cuffs on.

How do iI chose a fishing boat?

There are three styles of regular fishing boats; deep v, regular v or modified v. The v determines how well the boat cuts through the depth of the water. The deep v is better suited for large lakes because they can handle heavy waves better. Regular "v" is more appropriate for smaller lakes and a man made body of water. As the water is not as deep and the waves are not as heavy, this type of boat is able to handle the situation. The modified v is the most popular version. It is capable of handling speed best. Most fishing boats on the market today are made of fiberglass or aluminum. What is best for your fishing situation? Do you want to fish in large lakes or small lakes? The options are endless. There are several classes of fishing boats for different situations. All purpose fishing boats are great for your basic fishing needs. This type of boat has space for some bench seats, fishing gear and a simple steering station. They are made of either fiberglass or aluminum and are between 15 and 20 feet long. Another type of fishing boat is a bass boat, which comes fully equipped with space for rods and fishing gear. The boat is fully built with electronics and livewells. This boat also is made out of fiberglass and aluminum. The advantage to this type of boat is it is made especially to catch bass, fast. The third type of fishing boat is the center-console. It allows a fisherman to angle from any place on the deck. The control center is located in the center. Depending on the size of the boat they can be used offshore as well as near. Flats boats are mostly made up of fiberglass. The advantage of these boats is they allow easier angling access to saltwater flat fish. Another advantage it has is a poling platform that allows for fish spotting. Finally, a casting deck allows the angler to keep control. This makes this ype of boat convenient for fishing. The final category of fishing boats is the fun boat because it combines the motor of a yacht and the functionality of large a cockpit to work trophy fish and bring them on board. If ou are a fishing fanatic then it is important to have all the things that you need to make your fishing trip a success. Fishing boats are definitely the finishing touch to a nice fishing trip.
