Corsa Exhaust
August 19, 2021

This is the process of me performing a Corsa Exhaust Solenoid Replacement. This was one of the last remaining pieces I had to address. Below is a picture of the old solenoid. There is nothing here that I’m going to be able to use from the solenoid other than maybe the spring, maybe. I am assuming that the converter I removed from the old solenoid is bad also. I did…

The Nauti Oar
July 17, 2021

So we just took ownership of our 2000 Silverton 352 MY (Motor Yacht). She needs a bit of TLC! She is 21 years old and has had three owners excluding us. They say the happiest days of a boat owner’s life are the day they buy their boat and the day they sell it. So let’s try and shift this paradigm. Prior to embarking on this chapter, I signed up…
