6 posts in this topic

I bought a new 6 gal tank for my tiller boat. Do I have to put anything on the threads before I screw it into the tank? The tank is plastic and the fitting is brass.

There is two types of teflon tape.The white color is for air/water ap

lication and the yellow is for gas/other aplications.Use plumbers goop instead of teflon tape.Hope this helps,c63 grin.gif

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
