Re: New Owner Questions

Regarding the generator. Our generator developed a rust hole in the bottom of the oil pan which required complete removal from the boat to replace the pan. It does fit through the hatch.

Transmission, Rear Seal

We have a rear transmission seal leaking on the starboard side. It is a slow leak but needs to be fixed. Has anyone replaced a transmission seal on their 34? If so can it be done while the boat is in the water and without removing the prop? I am hoping I can unbolt the coupler and the flexible plast...

Re: New Head..

Bill,

Ours works fine and when it had an issue it was easy to repair. I can see it would be easier with the one you are looking at when you have guests although using the auto flush feature regularly seems like it may fill the holding tank quicker.

Re: Webasto Water Tank

Mac,

Got it. I am sure it is a great system to have out there and I like the idea of the separate zones. By the way, when it drops below 80 I grab a jacket.

Re: Webasto Water Tank

Mac, I am with John, there is nothing like that on my 2006. I am assuming someone wanted to have an unlimited supply of hot water at anchor without running the generator when they had that one installed on your boat. Is that hot water only or does it provide heat also? Either way, the prior owner pr...

Thanks John. I sure don't have anything there. I think I am saltwater only.

Re: Jabsco deck fitting for washdown systems

Duane,

I feel a bit silly asking but where is the fresh water wash down fitting? I haven’t seen it so I am either blind or it was an option that our boat does not have.

Shaft Seals

We have had our boat for just about three years and for the first two had problems with the starboard side Tides Marine shaft seal leaking. We had both seals them replaced at Stuart Yacht. Gregg said they had replaced them less than three years earlier for the prior owner. Stuart did not feel we had...

Re: $29 can safe you thousands $$$

Mac, I think you are asking how to route the wiring. Parts of this job will require a helper. Start in the starboard engine stateroom. Inside the forward inboard storage cabinet there is a recessed fiberglass shelf, remove the six or eight screws take it out. Once out you will see a lot of wiring he...

Re: Fuel gauges not working

Bill, On our boat, the fuel gauges come on from a breaker on the DC sub panel labeled instruments. Was it on? If so, I would check to be sure there is power coming out of the breaker. On the fuel spill, it can be a challenge to not get some spitting when filling our boat. I try to really slow the pu...

Re: Air Conditioner Replacement

Thank you all for the input. I also heard separately from James Power. Perhaps our boat was unusual with an 18K unit. James says he has replaced multiple with 16K. I did some more measuring and the only 18K 115 volt available is probably not going to fit as it is 1.5 inches taller than the one we cu...
