Re: Aft Bimini

You can always call Atlantic Towers and spend $10K on a hard top. A lot of money, but it is really nice.

Great idea Duane. Wish I had thought of it.

Re: Engine Panels

Mac, I have the 75 HP engines. I don't know really what the physical differences are in the three engine sizes. I assume that your engines have different valve timing, turbo boost, and maybe an intercooler. The intercooler, if you have one, might make the starter harder to get to depending on where ...

Re: Engine Panels

Duetto, John, I think. The upper helm might be a bit of a variable. It will need the alarm switches that are now on the engines. I think the current arrangement is for one alarm switch, either oil pressure or temperature, to serve two helms. The alarm switches are just switches after all, either on ...

Engine Panels

After a lot of problems with my panels at the inside helm, I have decided to replace them. Recently, the starboard engine engaged the starter while the engine was running and ruined the starter. This is the second starter. The first time I blamed it on the starter or the relay and replaced them both...

Re: Service Interval Alarm Yenmar 110/100 Engine

Well, since no one has replied, I will put in my two cents. There has to be a way to cancel the alarm, and I suspect it is similar to an automotive service interval light. One of those things like: "Power off, hold down a button while powering back on, then continue to hold the button for another fi...

Re: Microwave Addition

So, I installed the microwave without really checking the power it required. On the back of the unit, and online, it claims to use 1050 watts. I have a 1000 watt pure sine inverter. I thought I had really blown it until I looked up the specs on the inverter. The amount of power it puts out varies wi...

Re: Microwave Addition

Right. I have a pure sine inverter. I will double check the rating on the back.

Microwave Addition

After going through the trials of the convection microwave, we finally installed an ENO propane oven in the space where the convection microwave was installed. I can't say why we had so much trouble with the convection microwave, but two engineers could just not figure it out. The ENO has worked fin...

Re: Deck Storage

Nick, If your 2005 is like mine, the dinghy davits have probably been reinforced. Even without the reinforcement, a kayak does not weigh very much. As for bicycles, I have seen a 2003 pdq that used the aft bench seat for a bike rack. They removed the cushions and then placed a PVC half pipe (split d...

Re: Propane Cooktop Issue Revisited

I am the new owner of Mishigas which had become Perigrine. We’ve had her three years. I guess someone fixed this problem along the way. We have had no problems.

Re: New Owner PDQ41

Clay, I used the Magnum charger/inverter. I went with a 1200 Watt model because I think 2500 is overkill. I don’t see a compatibility issue. Solar and Charger both charge the same batteries and do not “fight” each other. I just installed each one as if the other did not exist. It is possible that so...

Re: Aft Bimini

There is a fly bridge bimini also by Atlantic Towers. It is of similar construction. You can see the support for it in the first picture if you look closely. Both are great places for solar panels. We currently have almost 1000 watts of solar up there.

Aft Bimini

Well, I spent the big bucks and had Atlantic Towers build a hard aft bimini. Here are some pics.
