Re: Plumbing tubing

Actually, I think it was downstream of the solenoid valve. Not sure, I will go back and look. I took it apart, and it was as clean as new. I put it back together nice and tight and it did not leak. I converted my toilet to sea water for the Bahamas. I had to add a pump for sea water, about 3 gallons...

Re: Plumbing tubing

I had a small amount of water collecting under the starboard side of the U-shaped settee at the aft end. I looked and looked under there and then removed the medicine cabinet in the head and looked some more. I thought it odd that, in the pressure side of the fresh water system, going to the head, t...

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

I have baked on a grill, but only if it had two or more burners. I bake with one burner on and one off with the food on the "off" side. My boat grill only has one burner of course, but it does have an upper rack. I "baked" a pork tenderloin on the upper rack with good results, bu...

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

John,

We have the 2005 with the new galley. There is more counter space, but still not a lot compared to some boats I have owned.

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

Jan, That is a pretty good solution. If I remove the convection microwave, and replace it with a propane oven, I have considered installing a very (very) small microwave oven on the counter top somewhere. Small enough to run on the inverter. It would probably have to live in a root cellar also. Tim

Re: Shower Pump Switch

My shower sump switch failed in the Bahamas. I could not find a switch down there, so I hot wired it to the breaker. I leave the breaker off all the time. When I get out of the shower, I go to the panel and turn on the breaker for a minute. I can tell from the sound when the shower is empty. I may i...

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

In our 2005, hull 68, we have a convection microwave. When we go to the Bahamas, we anchor out all the time. We have to run the gen set to use the oven. In addition we have had some difficulty adapting to the way it cooks. We have decided to go to a propane oven. There is an oven only unit from Fran...

Re: Yanmar fuel economy

I have the 75 hp engines, but here are my two cents. We came from Staniel Cay in the Exumas to Bimini, 197 miles on 51 gallons of diesel. No tricks, both engines running, averaging 6.5 knots. Two rough, by a lot, to plane. Also the boat handles well going off the wind in six foot following seas. Che...

Re: flybridge supply Breaker?

Our flybridge supply breaker turns on all DC power to the flybridge. The AC outlet on our flybridge has an AC breaker on the panel.

Re: Looking for solar panels

Gerry, Are you adding a rigid aft Bimini or is it fabric? I am interested in adding a rigid Bimini on the fly bridge and putting more solar panels up there. The current sunbrella Bimini up there goes crazy in a real blow. One of the supports came unbolted a few weeks ago, but I caught it in time. So...

Re: Hardtops-a-building for Looking Glass

pictures are a pain. Thank you for the dimensions. Does the flybridge hardtop go back to the radar mast? How did you handle flybridge access through the aft hardtop? Thanks.

Re: Hardtops-a-building for Looking Glass

Mark,

What ever happened with this? I am considering adding a hard top. I did it on my sailboat, a Morgan 384, and I loved it. No maintenance, storm proof, and a great place of solar panels. I would love to see pictures of your progress. Thanks.

Re: Plumbing tubing

Thanks guys. I honestly would have confused it with the Home Depot stuff.

Plumbing tubing

I was sure I would find something about this in the forum, but did not. My 2005 M/V 068 has what appears to be some kind of PE tubing throughout for the fresh water system. I have had no problems with it at all. However, does anyone know the brand? Is it generic? Also, what brand are the fittings? I...
