Re: New Head..

Ok so everybody still using the old Jabsco.. I remember once reading an interview with Elizabeth Taylor and she said “Everytime I get divorced I change all the toilets in my house”.. I kind of feel like that.. Perhaps if these toilets are so great could you share reasons why I should just keep what ...

Re: Transom shower..

David, The part is Scandvik # 12104... However it is for a hole of 2 3/4 inch hole and mine was maybe 2 1/4 so I had to make the hole a little bigger in order to fit the cap. They do make one that fits exactly but when I called they said 12104 was a better quality part and if possible just use it so...

New Head..

I want to replace the old Jabsco head and install something new.. This may seem silly because there is nothing wrong with the Jabsco I just want a brand new one that no one ever sat on before... I am looking at the Marine Elegance model and I know Stuart Yachts has done a few replacements over the y...

Re: Transom shower..

Thanks for the help as always.. Just to report back I did manage to retrieve the shower from behind the heater.. The job was much easier removing the firewall giving me enough room to crawl back there and get it.. I suggest checking the trim as the part is only $17 and a lot easier to replace before...

Transom shower..

So my transom shower has fallen inside the boat.. the plastic had rotted away that held it in place and now it’s back behind the water heater somewhere. I have found the replacement part but here is my problem.. How the **** do I get back there to retrieve it. I see no way I can climb back there and...

Holding tank Monitor

I thought I would share my experience installing a new holding tank monitor. Going down the icw I mistakenly thought my tank was maybe half full when I flushed and the “Full Light” came on. Well I can tell you with absolute certainty that you may have 4 more flushes at most before disaster strikes.....

Bahamas cruising permit question...

I have gotten conflicting reports regarding how long you may stay in the Bahamas while cruising. A friend is coming from New Zealand and we will be heading over this winter. I am assured she does not need a visa and is allowed a 3 month stay. For me a US citizen is states 8 months but is up to the d...

Re: Springfield double helm seat

Thanks for all the replies... I think I’m going to pull the trigger and buy the double seat from Springfield. If anyone remembers which pedestals you bought or if I can use the one I already have and just buy one? I agree it would be nice on a rougher passage to have a single seat however I think th...

Springfield double helm seat

For those of you who added the double helm seat on the flybridge from Springfield I’m curious as how it was mounted and was it a worthwhile addition? Our boat is an 05 with the single seat and pedestal which is fine however the double seat looks really nice.. Any thoughts are appreciated.. Bill Mv34...

Lower Helm seat sliding bracket

The lower helm seat on our 05 was so uncomfortable to sit on I decided to take it in to have new foam installed, while it was out I added 2 pieces of 2x4 and raised the seat up a bit. Super easy and makes a huge difference in comfort. However after removing the seat the left side sliding bracket was...

Re: Fuel gauges not working

I’m happy to report my gauges are back up and running. Having no power to the gauges I followed James advice and here is what I found. The aft tank gauge is connected directly to the forward tank gauge. So the power line for both gauges goes from the forward tank gauge to the bus bar located directl...

Re: Thoughts on Watermakers ?

I recently contacted Water Makers about the ISL 400 which is there best selling RO system. It seems like a really good water maker and if not for other boat issues I would probably go with. They are running a special this month. Basically the price comes to $6k with tax but not installed. They said ...

Re: Fuel gauges not working

James, With the instrument breaker on I have checked for power to the gauges with a multimeter and get no voltage at all. All other instruments are working normally. I thought maybe the key needs to be on however that makes no difference still no power. Might there be a inline fuse somewhere that I ...

Re: Fuel gauges not working

Alan, On my 05 the instrument breaker also controls the chart plotter and yes it was on. In fact I turned them all on just to make sure yet I still get nothing to the gauges??? Normally when fueling I keep an eye on them and when I get close I start slowing down big time but I couldn’t remember how ...
