Re: Shaft Seals

hi alan,

glad to hear your success. we too had problems with seals, first tides and then pss. we had extra cutlass bearing and things have been good since. i do think pss face seal is more tolerant of vibration than tides lip seal.

Re: fuel "burping"?

what kind of fill rate with the big nozzle hoses can you use with the filter(i.e. wide open, 1/2, 1/4)? we actually looked at these about a year ago but decided we didn't need. we're re-thinking the whole problem. i'm going to trace the vent hose and check for low spots. i can see where if there is ...

fuel "burping"?

hi all, when we fill our tanks (esp the rear) i'm constantly worrying about having fuel "erupt" out of the filler hole. it mostly happens when we have to use the large diameter nozzles. i've tried going really, really slow but even this is no guarantee. i assume it is due to air not being ...

Re: Bahamas cruising permit question...

hi, i actually thought the cruising permit applies to the boat. i believe that it is good for up to a year. afaik, all people need a visa. the problem that we've seen is that depending on officier on duty you may get anywhere from 30 days to 6 months. we have only cleared in at west end (really good...

Re: Springfield double helm seat

hi mac,

i have an alignment question. our 2003 has a crown in the flybridge floor. not sure if that's true on later years but if it is, how did you ensure that the vertical supports are parallel? the reason i ask is that it was mentioned that correct alignment is critical.

Re: Current accurate weather

we have used batelco simm and a data plan to get internet and weather. we have a cell booster which helps in exumas. cell companies have added a lot more cell towers so most areas you can get coverage. if you're a sail cat you can run cellphone up mast in a bag to increase range.

Re: Thoughts on Watermakers ?

Re: Thoughts on Watermakers ?

hi, before we went to the bahamas we went thru the same thoughts. we've been to abacos, eleuthera and exumas to staniel cay. couple of questions: 1) do you anchor out a lot 2) where will you be spending most of your time 3) how much water do you use a day 4) fresh water toilet. if you are staying in...

Re: trans oil cooler?

thanks for the reply. i spoke directly to bowman. they can provide bsp or npt in 3/8" or 1/2". i was trying to see if anyone had done this project and knew what size/type pdq's supplier had used. then i could order the correct sizes and reuse the existing hoses. i realized this was a long ...

hi all, i'm in the process of replacing the trans oil coolers on our 2003. the coolers are bowman DC60 with type A rubber boots. what i don't know is the thread type and thread size of the ports where the oil lines from trans connect to cooler. bowman offers thread types (bsp & npt) and thread s...
