Hi All, I have a 2007 Glastron GLX 185 with a Volvo Penta 4.3L. Motor is I/O. I just bought it in early July. Boat has been running great and the trim has been working perfectly. Yesterday I ran the boat for two hours. Trim worked great when trailering, but when I went to do my exit inspection at the lake with the ranger the trim wouldn't go down or up for that matter. I could hear a clicking noise at the fuse/relay box. All the fuses/relays seem to be secured/plugged in properly. Last night the trim finally went down, but then I couldn't get it to go back up after draining all the water out of the prop. This morning I gave it a try and sure enough the trim worked - went all the way up. I then tried to lower it again and got nothing. Any suggestions on what might be the problem and what the fix might be? Was hoping to take the boat out today, but concerned given the intermittent functionality of the trim!

Thanks Merlin!

I did hit a sandbar earlier this summer, and I do remember experiencing some issues shortly there after; speedo was reading ~20 MPH, where I know I was traveling about 40 MPH. at that time, I shut the motor down, turned it back on and it was fine. Up until this past weekend.

I'll get my compressor out this weekend and blow the line through.

A small piece of crud can easily go further up the hose, especially if you're running in shallow or touch the sand bar. I would disconnect at the speedo and blow air back towards the drive.

Technical Questions / speedometer not working

I'm running a 2012 Glastron GT205 w/ the 4.3 I/O motor (mercruiser/alpha one out drive)

 I noticed Monday while I was out on the water, my speedometer was not working. I've already ran a small drill bit with my fingers through the hole on the bottom of the lower unit, I disconnected the tube from the lower unit and blew (with my mouth) into the hole. I was able to feel the air pass through, so I know there is not blockage there.

 any ideas what I should check next? is there a sensor that the water pressure is measured at, or does the rubber host go straight from the lower unit to the gauge? if that's the case, I guess it could be a blockage within that part, and I'll start from the gauge and blow some compressed air.

 appreciate the help.

Here in alberta you can pay up to $500 to winterize a V6. Storage, all depends what kind, outside wrapped up, cold under a roof, heated, etc. If you can't do the work yourself, and have no where to store the boat, I suppose $1000 might be acceptable.
For me I do most of the maintenance my self. just bought all the fluids, filters and spent $100. Then it goes to sleep in my garage.

My marina just informed me my cost to winterize and store my boat for the winter would be $1008.00.  I am in Ottawa Canada and was wondering what you pay.
