Re: Diesel spill

buy a gallon of formula 88 at home depot and pour in. it will break down the diesel. i would think eventually it will find its way into one or both hulls. i thought that the floor of the rear a/c compartment is the bottom of the bridge deck (at least on our 2003).

Re: novacool fridge

hi russ,

it appears that the fan is "sucking" the air out of fridge area and into fuel tank area. i was just wondering why you didn't mount it in fridge compartment. not sure whether or not it would work better.

Re: novacool fridge

hi russ,

i assume picture is taken from inside the locker over the front fuel tank. is there a reason you put fan in there sucking air out as opposed to in behind fridge blowing air out?

Re: sugested dinghy size

hi,

first, i suggest you search this forum at length.

with that said we have a west marine 10'6" rib with a yamaha 15 2-stroke. it planes comfortably with 3 but barely with 4. just fits between hulls and wife and i can handle easily.

i agree with you. it's all about finding a place and routing the hoses. i've got to believe that someone on the forum who has done this.

Re: Macerator pump installation

we switched and it was one of the best things we did for the boat. i'd take pictures but we are old style (#23) and it has a completely different plumbing setup than yours.

Re: Engine Raw water intake strainer

i assume that you're talking about the cover on the outside of the hull. if you mount the cover with the slots facing aft you can get a vacuum created behind the solid portion and cut down on the flow to the engines. the cutout is probably intended to reduce the chance of a vacuum.
