Evangeline on Lake Tahoe

A huge thanks to the Lake Tahoe gang for providing this cool video of the magic that is Lake Tahoe. Never been? Yikes, Lake Tahoe is a bucket list show. This year there are two shows, this one and the big ACBS International show a month or so later. Each show at a different marina, and cool as all get out.

    Great Video!

    It is interesting the Fin and Tonic was put aside do to flooding the boat. (we call that sinking on land) Guess that is one of the main reasons that method of swelling is so frowned upon. We did it for decades with Yorktown, now I just spray the hull inside and out. I think it even works better.

    I also find it interesting that Dirk uses the wording “pickled the engine”. That is a term I use for an engine that has been properly winterized with fogging oil and such. I noticed a listing recently stating the engine was “pickled” and someone asked what it needed to be fixed. How do the rest of you use this term?

      For those that want to use the hose in the bilge method of Spring bottom swelling, a suggestion that I used successfully for many years. The drain plug is a standard 1 in. pipe thread. Thread a 3 in. length of 1 in. pipe into the drain hole to acts as an overflow. You will never flood the boat over the length of pipe. Fortunately with West bottoms on both of our boats, that is a thing of the past for me!

    We always used “Pickled” in reference to an engine being properly lubricated / winterized or laid up for long term storage.

    An amazing video.

    Chad, happy birthday. Glad you survived the Saturday night pickling.

    I sure that Dirk intended to say that the engine was “pickled” after being dried out and prior to being stored for many years.

    Around here we only use the pickled term for an engine that has been submerged and it is a radical emergency procedure …..running kero and oil through the entire engine…ditching wetted components and etc…..last resort to say the engine….been there….done that…

    A pickled engine is one that’s winterized, fogged, and generally laid up for a while. I think we can all agree what a cooked or smoked engine means. None of us want that.
