86 or 92 Mercury 9.9 Cold Start Problems

I would check for a consistent strong spark. It may be intermittent.

Painting the interior

The adhesion of the existing paint to metal is the key here. One test for that is to take a sharp knife & make cross hatch cuts, about 1/8 inch parallel cuts, for about 1 inch square. Do this in a non- appearance area, obviously. Take some fresh tape & press it hard into the cut area, pull straight ...

Waterproofing Plywood Deck Help

Any of your options will work, so go for what is easiest for you. If you keep the attaching screws accessible, if it ever rots (probably won't be on your watch) it will be easy to replace.

I think you are going to be upside down just buying the materials to save that boat, not to mention the labor.

Keel repair (alumacraft FD)

Screws will work but put sealer both sides. JB weld OK to use if you already have it.

1992 rivertrail 150

Nice boat, your kid will remember this rig the rest of his life.

Windy days - definitely have to slow down. But it is great fun to open her up when the water is smooth!

Tin boats are low maintenance - so you can spend more time fishing & less time taking care of your toy.

old mixed gas

After you remove tank & pour out old gas, I would wash it out with hot soapy water - mainly for safety. Obviously get all the water dried out. Then you can use a flashlight to observe the interior surface, could be rusty. There are sealers you can use to mitigate this. Good luck.

So the fuel lines siphoned the carb bowl dry? Doesnt the fuel line pump bulb have a check valve in it? Seems that would prevent backflow.
