Another Muskrat Tale . . .

By |December 11th, 2013|Categories: Captain's Log, Product News, Tips & Techniques|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

How I Stopped Muskrats from Getting into my Boat Exhaust Port Here is my encounter with far too many Muskrats. The manufacturing of my product couldn't come soon enough, to combat these vermin. Here is my story: 11/03/10 Not sure if you heard yet, but I have had some Muskrat problems. Early this year I had started to design an adjustable Muskrat Guard for exhaust ports. As busy as I was this summer, between work and play, I somewhat dropped the ball but picked that ball back up a few weeks ago. I was just about there with a prototype, but a day late. I had taken my boat to Harbor Town last Saturday and had left it there for Capt. Niemo (John) to pull on Monday. Well, I had gone back down there on Sunday to do some minor end of the season work and while in the engine room I heard some noises. After a [...]

Hate Drilling Holes in Your Boat?

By |December 11th, 2013|Categories: Tips & Techniques|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |Comments Off on Hate Drilling Holes in Your Boat?

Everyone hates drilling holes in their boat but sometimes it's a must. Drilling Holes??  Carefully plan your installation before you perform an installation. You know what they say, Measure twice, drill once! Before proceeding to drill check carefully to ensure that the hole will not affect the operation of other equipment in close proximity, nor compromise the integrity of the structure. Before drilling holes mark the position. It is good practice to use masking tape on the surface to be drilled then drill the hole through the tape. This will avoid scratching/chipping of the surrounding surface. Then, with a counter sink bit, lightly counter sink the surface.  This keeps spider crackes from forming after the bolt or screw is tightened down. After drilling and counter sinking the hole(s), apply a marine grade sealant (3M 5200) to the cut surface to ensure it is completely sealed against the ingress of moisture [...]

Muskrat Guards . . . Prevent the Unthinkable!

By |December 11th, 2013|Categories: Tips & Techniques|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Muskrat Guards . . . Hurley Muskrat Guards are 316 stainless steel, adjustable, and install inside the exhaust ports. Any boat that has a wet exhaust with a discharge opening of about three inches or larger is at risk. A Muskrat, Water Rat, Otter or other vermins can and will swim up the exhaust to chew through a coupling hose to the inside of the boat or make a den. That also includes boats with underwater exhausts as these rodents & vermins usually look for underwater entrances leading upwards to hollowed out chambers. This is how many boats sink, even while tied to the dock. This Exhaust Guard is also known as an Exhaust Mixer for when backing down on fish to mix the exhaust with water to keep the fumes from entering the cockpit or to just minimize the diesel soot on the stern of your boat. Did you know:  Marine insurance policies exclude damage [...]

Muskrat Exhaust Guards . . . Hurley Muskrat Exhaust Guards . . .

The Hurley Marine Muskrat Exhaust Guard is 316 stainless steel, adjustable and install inside the exhaust ports.  Guards are adjusted outward by stainless rods creating friction to the inside of the port, with no penetration to the hull and installs in minutes.  Local boat yards may custom make them for you but that takes time and is very costly.
