People,,a depth finder does work in front to a degree,,as it fans out from the units rear location.,you can't trust it though
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
The big trouble is how that information is represented. The display will generally only give you an single depth directly under the transducer even though the cone fans out.

Hi Stu, I wanted to share this advice with your subscribers.

Running any outboard motor, when it is not submerged in water or without the motor flushing device installed on the intakes with water running through it, can very quickly over heat the engine.

I would not suggest deviating from the manufacturers advice. Doing sowill prove to be harmful to the engine and very costly to repair.

There is a difference between running the engine out of the water and running it out of water.

Running the engine out of the water means while it is not in water. Running it out of water means to not supply enough water while it is running. Both will be distructive to the engine and parts that require cooling.

Running the engine while the flushing device is not installed is equal to out of the water. Running the engine with too little flow and volume of water while the flushing device is installed is also distructive.

Accelerating the engine while the flushing device ia attacted, water on, is also to be avoided. Reading the owners manual and applying the advice offered is the best and safest methods for engine maintenance and long life.
Tim's Workshop TJY
Tim's Workshop TJY - 3 years ago
But even if water is peeing doesn't mean the water has enough pressure to cool on some engines. The muffs have water pressure from the tap and if the water is not high enough in a water barrel the motor will heat up.
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Yes, overheating an engine sure can be a problem. When running without water at all, it is the impeller that will suffer the most in the short term if the pump is completely dry.

Here is a good example of what not to do when filling a boat with fuel. my guess is the boat owners friend filled the boat not knowing where the fuel went in at. Then what really made matters worse they were trying to start it to get the boat away from the fuel in the water. people tried to warn them not to but it blew up injuring all three. Wow take time and know what you are doing out there folks.

Yeah, I've seen someone here do that too. The trick once it has happened is to avoid any source of ignition so turning the bilge pump off completely is an important step too in case it kicks in automatically.

Thanks for an informative video - in Canada, laws regarding alcohol/boating vary, with some Provinces not allowing consumption unless there are permanent kitchen, toilet and sleeping quarters on board and the fines (and possible jail time) in ALL Provinces are similar to driving a car under the influence. I like a cold one just as much as the next guy but I don't think its a good idea to have one while at the helm . . . if it DOES tip over it can cause a dangerous distraction at a critical moment not to mention making a stinking mess. NOT a good idea. Happy sober : ) boating!
Dangar Marine

In Australia it is simply that you must stay under 0.05, the same as in the car. The cops do occasionally do on water breath testing so most people are pretty careful about it these days.

If I could add one tip about shallow water is to "Always" take the mrs advice unless you still want to hear about it 20 years later. As for a drinks holder,food holder etc,etc.....the mrs comes to mind again.That boulder at the end will look great in my pool area,but at a guess it will weigh a little bit. You forgot the tips on how not to run idiots over at night with no nav lights displayed.My tip is to keep an eye out on the drop kicks glow from his lit cigarette as he passes you taking a drag.

We are required to take a weekend safety course and pass the test with 80% to operate a motorboat less than 30 feet. Larger you need a captains licence. My course didn't prepare me at all for the North Atlantic. 6 foot rollers on a good day, reefs galore, wind and cold water that will kill you in minutes. I'd love to move where it was warm all the time, Stu you live in paridise.

Your on-the-water tutorial vids are absolute eye candy for us viewers (the scenery, not you specifically, although there may be some female viewers whose gaze may fall upon you).  I can follow along with the lecture, but I can't help but take in the view all around (and hear the background noises too, like the train whistle...).  And of course, what responsible boater would permit willful and wanton waste/destruction of good provisions? Hope you wiped up any foam that escaped the container.    Would have been neat to find out what paperwork/documentation is required on a boat, should the local enforcement be in a nosey mood, but then I suppose that might differ greatly from region to region throughout the world, so perhaps best that segment not included.  6 months old and misfiring?  Yes, let's hope it's lousy fuel.     I must say, I was disappointed that you didn't take the opportunity to go ahead and "pull-start" the green machine and get out there for a while to charge it up a bit. But on the other hand, that Merc-powered craft is nice and quiet for the purpose of lecturing and capturing voice in the recording.    Thanks for the pointers.
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Hey Stan, I do like getting out on the river when the sun is shining as I figure it gives people a chance to go boating vicariously, particularly if they are watching from their work desk and wanting a bit of escape for a few minutes. It's a good point you make about rules and regulations being so different from state to state, let alone different countries. Here we don't need to carry any paperwork other than your license if you are travelling over 10 knots. If you are going under ten knots (regardless of how fast the boat is capable of going) you don't need a license.

Hi Dan, I enjoy and appreciate your videos and work. Thanks. I have a few questions for you. 1. Can a 9.9 hp Mercury 4 stroke be upgraded to put out 15 or 20 hp? If so how?
John Wilder
John Wilder - 3 years ago
Ok. Correcting myself. I see your name is Stu not Dan. Sorry. Got it...Also I believe the displacement of the Mercury 9.9 hp versus a 15 or 20 hp is a substantially smaller displacement. Going to have to buy a 20 or 25 hp.

Again
Thanks Stu
John Wilder
John Wilder - 3 years ago
Thanks Dan. I appreciate your response. I upgraded a 1436 Aluminum Jon boat to a small bass boat. I put plywood decking and Cedar framing as the deck. Also added a console complete with electronics (auto man bilge, live well, horn, fish finder, lighting and such. Also changed from tiller handle to steering wheel. I also added 6" diameter by 10' tubes on each side of it to stabilize so I can stand up on its deck.

I still have some work to do on it. All of the upgrades have added significant weight to the vessel. Part of the work is either adding HP to the engine or getting an engine that can handle the weight of the boat without over doing it for the size of the boat.

Again thanks for your reply.
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Hi John, not sure off the top of my head, you would need to compare the engine block displacement to see which models share a block. If it does share a block with the 15 or 20 then you most likely need to change carburettor jets and reed valves.

Great video Stu, other than knowing the basics of boating fire is the most dangerous hazzard on the water. my suggestion to everyone is carry a good working fire extinguisher. never pour water on a boat fire it will spread it and make it worse. If you're not in swimming distance better carry a inflatable life raft. have a marine radio to call for help. be prepared in case the worse happens. Oh and know your engines. if you borrow a kicker motor from a friend make sure to test it first with the cover off and check for fuel leaks. main engine too before you leave dock.

Dangar Marine

Checking for fuel leaks is definitely an important part of a service. I always think when I'm servicing a motor that the two real dangers are fire and steering failure at speed so I always give those two possibilities extra attention.

Ron Powell
Ron Powell - 3 years ago
I am in trouble- my boat does not have that grab rail! In a pub conversation one day a guy was boasting he never ran into sand bars because his fish finder gave him the depth of water as well. I had to walk away because he could not grasp the fact the transducer was at the back of the boat - 18 feet from the front, and some sand bars/reefs could have the bow grounded and the stern in 20ft of water (Sow and Pigs come to mind)
Ron Powell
Ron Powell - 3 years ago
Stu, Same as the southern end of Shark island - I have been aground two times inside the south marker - and no, I was not the skipper. Both times I went overboard as I set the spinnaker pole for southerly  powered run to the finish line off Clark Island.
Ron Powell
Ron Powell - 3 years ago
A transducer faced forward at any angle is useless. If mounted on the stern so that the sensor stays in the water when the boat is at full speed (so much drag the bracket would likely be broken within a trip or two) you would need to set a depth off set  to compensate for the length of the boat- but hat length do you set? A 20ft boat at cruise may have 12ft-15ft of boat in the water, full speed maybe 10 or less. As the sensor is at an angle it is useless for fish finding, and the angle makes shallow water warning further than a boat length or so in front too inaccurate for the reading to be trusted. Other than drag,  the in hull transducer has the same issue. And if you are going at 10knots or more, good luck in getting your boat stopped with in 2 boat lengths anyway!  GPS is good , but better than 10m  is rare as most GPS units don't tell you when they are effectively dead reckoning or averaging readings from a couple of satellites to give a fix. Many GPS units do have a screen showing what the probable error is, but there are few people that look at that number in normal use. Even charts are are no guarantee. Any water that is marked as being less than 3 times your keel depth (or in our case- skeg depth) or just is an unknown depth should be transitioned at dead slow , hitting a bar or bank and having your kids fall down and be hurt is just not worth the loss of trust and pain you caused.
DIY Boats
DIY Boats - 3 years ago
You're in luck! They do have 2 more types besides the transom mounted transducer. They shoot through the hull and you can place them mid ship or any flat spot really. One type sits in a pool of epoxy w/ no drilling required. The other is best but requires you do drill a huge hole in your bottom so it can shoot through. There is also a forward looking transducer but that's a totally different animal.
alan mccracken
alan mccracken - 3 years ago
Hi Stu. My Four Winn's comes standard with a transducer in the bilge and that gives the immediate depth below the boat on a gauge but I also have a Garman GPS/Sonar set up with a forward depth range of approx 200 feet. The transducer points forward but is only 2 inches below the hull  and has not fouled on any thing so far that is excluding the original fit snagged the trailer but that was easy sorted by moving it out towards the side of the boat by 3 inches. Both readouts can be a great advantage on a rocky piece of water or when you have had a wee dram too much to drink and not sure of your surroundings.
Stan Patterson
Stan Patterson - 3 years ago
With the way "technology" has been advancing in leaps and bounds,  nobody has taken time to figure out a better way to sound depth? There's got to be a better way, if not another way, to read depth without being overcome by "drag" in the water.  They have little flat antennae for picking up satellite radio. Why can't they make flat pickups that could be either incorporated into the hull at time of build, or attached as an aftermarket device.  Something flat to overcome resistance in the water, yet able to sound in more than a simple "straight down" direction.  I'd bet there's money in a design that could achieve those goals.
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Hey Stan, the big trouble with sounders facing forward is that they aren't protected and break off really easily .
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Don't worry Ron, I guess drink holders are a close second. ;) Yes, I had a similar argument as the boat officer in our local fire brigade. We do go up some shallow creeks at night during emergencies and it was suggested that a sounder would help with this but a good sea chart / GPS is a much better solution if you don't have the local knowledge. Sow and Pigs has a complete fence of cardinal marks around it and people still run aground!
Stan Patterson
Stan Patterson - 3 years ago
I've often wondered if the transducer's pickup pattern can be altered by the makers to have a selection of patterns such as 45 or 55 degrees forward or simply straight down below.  Not that anyone bumping along at 40+ knots is going to have much time to react to the sudden indication that the water depth is decreasing to alarming levels (if they're even paying attention at that point).  But for trolling along in a river, a feature like that might be handy. Even still, it's much like having a GPS.  You still need, and should always use, a functional brain when operating equipment. Never rely solely on navigational aids and blindly trust them implicitly.  Common sense (which unfortunately, is not very common anymore) should always prevail.

Hi , you are up late like me.
I used to Drive the charter boats in Melbourne on the Yarra river which then had sterndrive which is like having an outboard.
So what I used to do was come in Starboard side too with motor midship ( right hand pop ) then put a line on then put motor hard to Port ,then go ahead slowly. Done. Now if I was coming in at the wrong make I had put the motor hard to starboard and put it into reverse which would pull the head off to port but bring in the starboard stern, which was good so now all I had to do very fast was to turn the motor all the way back port then go ahead , and on some of the small 40 footers I used I would some time drive then backwards and in that way all I had to do was aim for where I wanted to go.
Dangar Marine
Dangar Marine - 3 years ago
Going ahead on a deck line is a great way to bring a boat against a wharf or pontoon. This is pretty much the way that ferry I passed comes in every time and just stays with the motor going ahead until everyone is onboard.
