    Transmission Change

    I think this is a common symptom with this trans as the clutches wear. Ours seemed to be getting a bit worse, and adjusting the linkage helped a bit. On a recommendation from a friend at the local boatyard, I changed the oil in the trans and it got MUCH better. Not perfect, but a big...

    Best diesel fuel additive?

    I'm sure there are others like me who never end up running the engine much in normal use. I'll start it, let it warm up a while, then 5 minutes later I'm outside the marina and raising sail.

    Any 310's in the S.F. Bay Area of California?
