Re: Florida Storage

hi nick, we've stored in fl in the summers for the last 10 years, 9 with electricity. we're in stuart on the east coast but i suspect much of florida is the same. we've had luck with a dehumidifier, set at 60%. no mold, it actually seems like arizona. we've always stored outdoors, out of the water (...

Re: Effective Water

hi all,

over the last 15 years diane and i have consistently recorded a water usage of 10 gals a day and we've anchored out for 5-6 days in exumas. our usage includes 2 showers, coffee, etc. and dish washes. i created a dowel marked with 1/4 tank markings and it works for us.

Re: Effective Fuel

we have the 75 hp and 3 blades. we generally cruise at 13.5 knots which equates to 3350 rpm. at this speed we have averaged 2.4 nautical mpg for 15 years. included in this number is idling into and out of harbors, docking, etc. based on 125 usable gals this would give 300 nm range.

Re: Water in Fuel Sensor

hi, a long time ago (circa 2006 or 2007) we had the warning light go on intermittently. i spoke to pdq and they said that yanmar had problems with the filter mounted on the engine. it was mounted on a rubber grommet but still was sensitive to the amount of tightening. i decided to move the filter to...

Sliding Door Alignment

While researching my sliding door leak (posted "Sliding Door Leak ...") I figured it was time to replace door rollers and weather stripping. I ordered the parts Kent and Alan provided from Bomar. While I was waiting for the parts I noticed a reference to sliders, top and bottom. I called Bomar and w...

Sliding Door Leak (Another Kind)

Hi all, We’ve had a chronic leak just below the sliding door. In the past we just put rags on the ledge when it rained and, well, we lived with it. This winter we had some refinishing in the driving area and when we were home for Christmas we got a call from the floor guy who said he couldn't go ahe...

Re: Deck Storage

hi nick,

we've gone to bahamas more than a dozen times with 2 bikes (folding in bags) on the back seat. we just use some 1/4" line secured to arm rest, back rail, and seat itself. definitely out of the way.

Re: Batteries not charging while underway. PDQ34

hi, combiner should be green even when shore power/charger is working. the combiner has a switch which puts it in disconnect mode. i would check that. if that is in correct position, there are rotary dials on the left facing the combiner. these control shutoff voltage amongst other things. make sure...
