Re: 1977 lancer19'w/307engine

Good morning everyone and thanks for all the replies! The flame arrester already has the pcv hose attached and no place for the vent gromment in the kit. After a little research I believe that I have the wrong fuel pump will check a bit further. Thanks again for all the replies.

bunk covers

Is there a better cover for "bunks" than carpeting? Seems like the carpeting hold water for a long time and would tend to keep the hull wet and therefore promote rot. Any ideas?

Bottom paint

Has anyone had any experience using "Kush" paints? I have a 1957 Sea Skiff and do not need the antifouling bottom paint as the boat lives on the trailer except when in the water[fresh] ---the longest time would be about a week maybe twice a season. Any other suggestions?
