She has been very good to her owner in that he has gotten 17 years use from the first set of Vacuflush hoses! The secrets for this type of longevity I am not addressing here today! It is rather the techniques for recognizing when to change hoses, how to minimize the labor cost and understanding why there is an odor in the boat. Here are some common causes. They often are not what we may think!
1. Bilge blowers not working properly
2. Hoses not protected by periodic cleaning, turning yellow as a consequence
3. Ineffective holding tank vent system; lack of charcoal filters, vent line not running uphill and air conditioning system pulling stale air from around the holding tank

We belong to the Dennis Conner school of boat prep Here Pat is installing new wiper arms and blades in Eastbay 49. The prop requires great care as small imperfections from sloppy paint waste the horsepower, and yes that is a zinc in the center of this picture.
On this boat, only the tube to prop width of a few sheets of paper is efficient.Here the GrandBanks 42 Safari is lifted by a 70 ton marine travelift after riding out of the building on a 65 ton Brunell Trailer
Today is my last day of work before retirement. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciated all the viewers who came on a regular basis to view even on days when it was not all that interesting. It has always been the highlight of my day putting this together. Some days other projects got in the way or my mood just wasn’t right to do a good job with it but somehow I have persevered for many years. I hope they find someone else to do this because it is a worthy endeavor and to tell the truth we have picked up a lot of customers just from having this up. But it is time for me to start a new chapter in my life. If you ever wonder what I may be up to, visit my personal site at http://willoworks.com since i’ll probably be posting a whole lot more now.
