The first step would be to identify whether it is the blowers themselves that have become noisy - could be due to a build up of dirt, particularly on the fan blades affecting their balance, or could be that the motor bearings are getting a bit worn.
An alternative source of the noise might be that the mountings or any connecting hoses have become harder over time and are therefore transmitting more vibrations to the structure of the boat.

Is it a good investment to buy a yacht?

Investment to buy Yacht is a very outdated it is very costly and requires maintenance and security. Value of yacht keeps decreasing. It's a black hole which keeps taking money until you get poor and does not give any return. Yacht investment is very risky. You can't sell it if you want your money back!

You should better invest in healthcare startups which are the future. They will give you faster and sure returns in around 4 to 10 years. Their is much less risk in investing in companies which have patents and clinical studies. Contact Kavas Yachting Charters in Greece with details like how much money you have so that you i can recommend you investment opportunities which are profitable to invest with good returns.

You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.

Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.

2006 F250 the blower for the a/c and heat quit working. I checked fuses and found none blown could it be a relay or something else?

the most common problem with blower motors if not the fuse is the blower resistor that controls all the blower speeds.the resistor is located in the heater air box near the blower motor and there is usually about 4 wires in the plug.

I have a 8 hp snow blower,I would like to know what the oil capacity of engine and what type of motor oil i should use.What weight oil?and can you use regular sae motor oil automotive type non detergent ?

Your question as I received it did not specify the engine make, but most 8 hp Techumseh, B&S and Powermore engines take 22 to 32 oz of oil. Buy a quart, put two-thirds of the quart in the engine and check the level with the dipstick or fill hole. Add more if needed to come up to the "full" mark.
All the manufactures and Craftsman recommends 5W30 for 4 cycle winter use.
You can use regular sae oil, but I prefer to use Mobil ONE or a heavy duty oil because air cooled engines run hotter than car engines. Look for a SC/SD or greater rating on the bottle.
Change your oil once a year.
Feel free to as any other questions about your snow blower. Don't forget to rate this answer!

I have a Quadra fire 1200 pellet stove insert. The convection blower does not stay on continuously. 2 min on 2 min off

It may be working properly. If it seems that it's a little cool in the room and the blower is cycling like you say then the stove may be getting chilled. If this is the case then the low-temp switch is cutting the blower off.

If the room is quite hot there may be a problem with the blower. Check to see if it has a bunch of dust in it making it run hot and tripping the internal thermostat.

Please respond with the 'comment' button, down below the ads. I'm considering a pellet stove and I'd like to hear anything you have to say about yours.
