Which is best? OEM or Generic Fuel Lines for Outboard Motors

Our phone rings continuously with about boat motors not running properly. At times, we try to help our customers trouble shoot the problem over the phone. No sense in bringing a boat in for service if the answer is a quick solution that the owner can handle.
So, when discussing the poor performance complaints, popular problematic symptoms usually include:
-Motor will not start
-The engine runs fine for a while, but then shuts down and will not restart
-Loosing power periodically and then when running on plane
Mercury Outboard w fuel line

When we hear the symptoms above, we will suggest checking for fuel leaks, reviewing all fittings and connectors for leaks and testing the fuel bulb. We also ask if the fuel lines have been replaced and if so, what brand has been installed? When the answer is the fuel lines have been replaced by lines purchased at a large discount store, we suggest purchasing OEM fuel lines and installing them with new fittings. The fuel lines from the discount stores last a fraction of that of an OEM line. The quick deterioration of the generic lines often times cause boaters more problems than the money saved up front. Frequent replacing of lines and time lost on the water is far more costly than simply purchasing the OEM lines to begin with. If fuel lines have never been replaced, they still may need to be changed out with new OEM lines to insure fuel can reach the motor with ease.
If you are in need of new fuel lines or fuel related accessories, we can help. Our online parts store allows you to select your motor and review the engine diagrams on the screen. Simply place items from the microfiche drawings in your shopping cart & check out. We usually ship orders the same day so you receive your order quickly.
Bottom line, fuel related problems can sometimes be self diagnosed and fixed at home. We recommend using OEM parts especially with your fuel lines and connectors. Should you want us to do the work for you, please call or bring your boat in for Kansas City boat repair or service. There is nothing better than a fun day out on the water with friends and family. We take pride in quality workmanship and will get your motor running in top shape.

The Challenge: Finding NLA, older model boat parts

If you own an older boat motor you may find it challenging to get replacement parts for necessary repairs.  Most boat dealers do not have the time or the warehouse space to stock slower moving, older outboard or sterndrive parts.  To make matters worse, manufacturers only produce replacement parts for a period of time and then announce that the parts are NLA- no longer available from them. This leaves boat owners in  a pickle when in need of parts to get back out on the water.  Often times, older motors will be sent to the junk yard because of the lack of available replacement parts.

We have a solution for you! US Boatworks took on the inventory challenges to make the NLA parts available for everyone.  We expanded our warehouse space significantly to serve those in need of boat parts.  Our owner personally spends over 2000 hours each year scouring the country for hard to find parts.  Once we find parts and pay to have them shipped to our shop, we then review each piece to insure quality and suitability.  Next we log them into inventory, assign a bin location and get them on the warehouse Boat Parts Room
boat partsboat parts in stockshelf.
There is a significant time and money investment to get theses NLA parts to our customers.  Our NLA parts
will sometimes be more costly than the price when it was new.  This increase in price is due to the time and money investment made to bring them in and store them over the years.  Additionally, we often times pay over retail for parts when they are in high demand and low supply.  Just like you learned in economics 101.
If you are need of hard to find boat parts, please check our easy to use on-line parts store. If we don’t have what you are looking for on-line, be sure to call or email us.  If you order with us, we usually ship your part out the same day via FedEx ground.

How to launch a boat

The wrong way to launch a boat
People that have grown up boating seem to think that there is nothing to towing and launching a boat. When you are around it a lot its like second nature maneuvering your vehicle so the trailer goes where you want it to go and slipping into the water for a fun filled day.  But if you don't have that experience, you will find that it can be very stressful trying to get a boat off the trailer and on the water.  The same is true when pulling the boat out of the water. You have lines of people waiting for their turn. All eyes are on you as you try to back your vehicle down the ramp with the boat behind you.  One wrong turn and you have to pull out of it and start all over.  If you have others launching on either side of you, that adds even more stress to the situation.  So what is a new boater to do? Below I have listed some steps to get your boat launched with ease in hopes that your boating adventure goes of without a hitch.
Once you have arrived at the lake and are waiting your turn to back down the ramp, you will want do some prep work. If there is no line for the ramp, simply pull over and do this work out of everyone's way.
- Load everything you need into the boat
- Remove transom straps from the boat
- Put the drain plug in!!!!!! -PUT THE DRIAN PLUG IN!!!
- Disconnect trailer lights
- Throw mooring fenders over the side of the boat
- Have mooring lines ready and accessible
Now to LAUNCH
- Back your boat down the ramp until the engine is in the water enough to run
- Put your vehicle in park, engage the parking break and maybe chuck the wheel
- Remove the bow strap and safety chain from the boat
- Start your boat engine, put it in reverse and gently back up
- If boat doesn't move, you may need to back your vehicle further into the water
- If someone is with you to drive the boat then have them drive off while you park the car. They can pick you back up on the dock. This allows others to launch their boat while you park your vehicle.

Haul your boat out
- When backing your trailer down, go deep enough to get the boat on but not so deep that the boat will go over the trailer
-  If trailer has bunks,  carefully drive the boat up the trailer. Don't overpower it, make sure you are properly aligned & steering wheel is centered.
- Once on the trailer, winch the boat up to the top & connect the safety chain
- Turn off the motor and raise it up
- Move your vehicle and tailer out of the way so others can use the ramp
- Unload the boat
- Put mooring fenders & ropes inside the boat
- Connect trailer lights
- Connect transom straps

Over the last few years, I have written many articles with tips on getting your boat out on the water.  You can find tips about boat engine preparation from the article I wrote this spring.  Part of that preparation also includes safety measures. Please read our list of boating safety equipment you should always carry with you.  You can even have your boat safety inspected by a trained professional to be sure you meet all the recommended safety measures.  After all that hard work, planning and preparing, we hope everyone has a great holiday and that your boat runs great.

The US Coastguard Auxiliary has free tools to check the safety of your boat.  Their Vessel Safety Website allows boaters to become educated on boating safety.  First, download the Vessel Safety Manual to be clear on the rules and regulations regarding boating safety.  Second, do an on-line virtual safety check that addresses of the following:
  • Vessel Safety Check BadgeDisplay your boat’s registration number properly
  • Keep boat’s registration papers on board
  • Have US Coastguard approved lifejackets for everyone on board
  • Carry visual distress signals for day and night viewing
  • Carry sound producing distress device (whistle, air horn..)
  • Keep proper amount of fire extinguishers on board
  • Properly ventilate gasoline
  • Backfire Flame Control device on board
  • Distress sound producing device on board
  • Pollution Placard posted if applicable
  • Marpol trash placard posted if applicable
  • Coastguard approved toilet if applicable

Once you are in compliance with their guidelines, ask for a free vessel examiner to come to your marina or driveway to inspect your boat. Simply complete the on-line request and someone will be in contact with you. Once passed, you will be awarded a “Vessel Safety Check” decal. This decal alerts US Coastguard and enforcement officials that you are in compliance with the law. Best of all, you will sleep better knowing you are taking family and friend out on the water in a safe vessel.

Boat Safety Checklist

Planning for a day out on the lake can take some time.  The most skilled planner will have Kids with lifejacketslists of items to buy before the trip, items to bring in the car for the ride to the lake and also a list of items to go on the boat.  Of course we remember the snacks and drinks, the water skis and fishing poles all which are a necessity for having a great time.  However, with the fun list of toys comes a short list of safety items which could be a huge help in the event of a boating emergency.  While we will never use all of these safety items, having the right tools when you need them can make all the difference.  In fact, missing some of these items can make or break your fun day.  Better yet, having the right safety gear on your boat can save a life.

Boat Safety Items:

Fire Extinguisher
First Aid Kit
Life Jackets
Whistle or Air Hornboat on fire
Flash Light
Screw Driver
Pliers
Spare Prop
Prop Nut Wrench
Duct Tape

While researching items for this article, we came across Federal Requirements for recreational boats published by the US Coast Guard.  These regulations go into great detail as to the type of equipment necessary in its 82 page document called A Boaters Guide to Federal Requirements for Recreational Boats.  Page 42 of tha
document lists the requirements based on the size of your boat.  For our purposes, we are discussing boats up to 26 feet in length. Their list starts with reminding boaters that they need the required  state numbering and licensing then the remaining 8 items are about safety.  Similar to the list above, items required are life jackets, electric distress signals, flares, fire extinguisher, gas tank ventilation,horn or whistle, navigation lights and backfire flame arrestor for non-outboard motors.  We recommend all boaters review this document in its entirety as it address safety in operating your boat as well.  We will cover that topic in another post in the coming weeks.
In summary, take a few extra minutes this year before your first trip out with the boat to
be sure you have the proper safety equipment.  Do it now and at the beginning of each season.  A few safety precautions now can mean the difference between fun and disaster.

Boat Maintenance Checklist

Spring is finally here and the sun and warm temperatures are not far behind.  Soon you will want to be out enjoying theMercury Outboard 4 Stroke  sunshine and what better way to do it than getting out on the water? Before you make your first trip to the lake this year, it’s a good idea to make sure your  sterndrive engine or outboard motor is top running shape. Below is a list of some items to review before taking your boat out. This list does not represent everything you should check but does give good suggestions of where you should start. Please consult a certified marine repair mechanic prior to working on your boat motor.  It’s also a good idea to consult your owner’s manual for maintenance instructions specific to your boat model.
CHECKLIST:
Cables, Belts & HosesAlways check for cracking that occurred during winter storage.
Control cables with cracks or swelling on the outer layer may indicate need to replace.Belts should fit tightly around the pulleys to prevent slipping. A worn belt may have a black substance near the pulley & also may fit loosely.
Contact your boat repair center or order cables online to replace yourself.
Electrical ConnectionsCharge your battery and test it so you can be sure it will hold a charge. Electrical systems should be routinely inspected by a qualified technician.Review electrical connections for cleanliness and tightness. Check for corrosion which is often a sign that the Kansas City Area Mechanic fixing boatconnection may not be safe. Remove terminals and use a wire brush to clean connections and cable ends.

Propellers & Hulls
Inspect propellers for damage. Verify the propeller is properly secured.
If you experience unwanted vibration, poor performance and damage to the propulsion system, your prop may be damaged & need to be replaced.
Inspect the Hull – look for cracks & distortions. Clean the outside of your boat using an environmentally-safe cleaner.
FuelCheck your fuel lines for damage. Signs of damaged hoses can be either cracking, hard hoses or very soft hoses. Remember to check fuel hoses, connections and tank surfaces.
Insure clamps and fitting are secured.
Ensure the engine, exhaust and ventilation systems are also all functioning properly.
Fluid Levels
Check all fluid levels including
Engine oil- Change the oil if this was not done during winterizing. Include a new oil filter & change drive lubricants
Coolant
Power trim reservoir
Power Steering Fluid

Safety GearLifejackets need to be in good condition It’s important for passengers to have access to the correct size lifejacket for their body weight.
Onboard fire extinguishers must be the correct class for your boat, fully charged.
TrailerInspect trailer wheels, verify that tires are inflated to proper level.
Check that trailer straps are not worn and are holding properly.
Verify that your trailer is the proper size for your boat.
Go here for a more extensive boat maintenance checklist.

Time to get your boat ready for the season...

The calendar says it's almost spring even though all the clouds and rain make it feel like a distant dream.  As we are just entering the month of April, its time to get your boat out of storage and begin yourspring boat maintenance.  So the question is: where to start? First, ask yourself if you are you a do-it-yourselfer? Do you like to get your hands dirty and enjoy the challenge of understanding the ins & outs of boat maintenance? Or, do you prefer bringing your boat in for service and sitting back and letting the experts handle it?   The good news is that US Boatworks has you covered no matter which option you choose.
