Re: Yamaha F70

Oh yeah - the old motor is still sitting in my garage if anyone is interested (86 Mercury Mariner 75 HP two-stroke). We put a bunch of time and money into before we gave up so someone could get a good deal. If interested let me know and I can send you all the information including what was replaced ...

Re: 87 Cobia 17' Bay Boat Rebuild

Some pictures of the latest edition to the boat. We are trying to make a pseudo t-top for the boat. I am calling it a timini (combination of t-top and bimini). Construction is all aluminum with marine plywood for the top. It won't be strong enough to go down the highway at 80 mph, but it should be j...

Re: Yamaha F70

Hello, It has been a long while since I lasted posted. My apologies, but I like to spend my free time (of which I get very little) on the boat. So the story is basically this. We were using an analog tach. We ended up getting rid of that entirely after the computer hooked up to the motor told us we ...

Re: Yamaha F70

So far so good with the new motor. I will say that with the prop used in all of the Yamaha performance bulletins (13.5 X 15) the motor doesn't turn up to it's 6300 maximum operating rpm's. In fact if our tach is reading properly (which we think it is) then it is only turning up to 4800. It is at the...

Re: Yamaha F70

We took it out for the first time this Saturday after months of anticipation, and it didn't dissappoint. We are still in the break in period so no final verdicts, but the performance was impressive. Pump the bulb - turn the key and you are off and running. It is also very quiet; you can hardly hear ...

Re: Yamaha F70

We ordered it from a local Yamaha dealer here in FL named Atlantic Coast Marine. We have been waiting for it for awhile now (a couple of months).

Re: 87 Cobia 17' Bay Boat Rebuild

Oh yeah, and the fuel lines (fill, vent, and to the engine) are all back there too.

Re: 87 Cobia 17' Bay Boat Rebuild

I can try to get some pictures of the bilge area. However, I will say that it ended up sort of a mess (and probably not the best engineering). We wanted a through hole that could pump to the livewells while underway which ended up in the bilge area. We also wanted independent valves for each of the ...
