My outboard mechanic tells me the correct nomenclature for the "Pee hose"
is actually "piss tube". But that may be only for Mercury OB's ;-}. He got
quite a blush out of First Mate Valerie when I had her take the 7.5 in for
a 'dwindling trickle' problem. He swears by fresh water flushing whenever
taking the motor out of the water for any length of time to avoid this salt
and crust build up.

PS. I always try to have Valerie take the motor in when it needs repair - I
swear she gets a better price, and Mike the Mechanic gets a chuckle teasing
her.

Warming up on Whidbey Island - 55 today!
