Re: Bahamas crossing

We cross from west palm over to west end. Would never trust a weather report that says north will die down and go south..... only leave in a southerly wind direction and be aware of sea state from previous days weather ( heavy northern winds will cause seas for a few days). Good luck with the engine...

Engine Raw water intake strainer

So my 2005 has the raw water intake strainer mounted reverse and a section cut out on the forward section. Why? If mounted as the manufacturer says the water would be forced into the raw water thru hull increasing water flow to the engine....any ideas why the manufacturers did this? I have seen this...

We use the clean way fuel filter and this eliminates the mess with the “burping “ problem.

Re: Air Conditioner Replacement

I cleaned and sprayed a rust inhibitor ( the type that turns the rust into a hardened metal) . That has held us for the last 5 years no problems.
I don’t think the 18 is enough during our Bahamas trips can’t see why you would go down?

If it is working clean and spray....wait till it goes.

OVEN ALTERNATIVE

We miss not having an oven to cook.....any suggestions as to a countertop type or are you just using the microwave.
If you installed a microwave / convection oven how did you handle the heat of the oven in the original installation spot?

Re: Anyone chnged the WHIMPY horn?

Changed my whimpy horn today with a Two trumpet, 125 db, 12 volt horn manufactured by Viking Horns. Mounting holes lined up great with original holes...easy hook up and sounds like a real TRUCK HORN.

Bought on sale from Amazon for $79. Down from $139. All stainless steel and made for marine.

FLAG MAST

How do you attach your flag to the “mast” by the radar unit. Pictures would help. Thanks
