Mastry Engine Center Diesel School

Big thanks to Dick for setting up the diesel engine school held last week.
Well worth the time and money. I think everyone had several "Oh, that's how that's done!" moments.
If/when they do it again, sign up!

Re: Hydarulic Steering

Once you have the line out, any hydraulic line fabricator can duplicate the line and fittings.

Re: Generator Area Silver Sound Insulation

We replaced ours a year or so ago. We bought the foam panels and installation kit from either Defender or Jamestown distributors. In addition to what James states, we also installed the aluminum tabs/spikes on the horizontal panels as well as the overhead. Make sure all of the old contact cement is ...

Re: BOTTOM PAINT

Tampa Girl is in Tampa Bay which I feel is a very aggressive environment (lots of nutrients for barnacles, etc.) and we have had good experience with Seahawk Biocop. Easily get 2 years per bottom job with monthly brushing by a diver.

Re: Cost to repaint?

Thanks James.
The price for the deck was two coats of primer, new non-skid and 2 coats of paint. Deck hardware would be taped because the bedding is sound. Above deck hardware would be removed and reinstalled. The individual has a great reputation for meticulous work.

Re: Irma

Tampa Girl is at the Tampa Yacht and Country Club's new floating concrete marina and suffered no damage. Anita and I can now truthfully say that we rode out Hurricane Irma on a 34' PDQ power cat! Not all that impressive (or reckless), because the PDQ that we actually were on when Irma hit Florida wa...

An additional $12,000 to repaint the hulls light blue. Anyone have any information on the cost to repaint, or a recommendation for ...

Painting top sides

Tampa Girl is going to be due for some new topsides paint this winter. Anyone have first hand experience with having top sides painted and care to share helpful hints?
I have painted smaller boats before and we intend to contract this task out to professionals.
Thanks.

Yanmar mechanic on Fla. west coast

Anyone have any suggestions for a Yanmar mechanic in the Sarasota/Tampa Bay area? We have had great experiences with the mechanics on the southeast coast, but it seems like the mechanics we have used in the Tampa Bay area either break more than they fix, leave the boat a mess, or never show up. Just...

Re: Thru Hull Transducer

We installed a 527ID Furuno In-Hull (shoot through hull) transducer 1kW broad band 50/200 KHz in the area below the covering board in the head. Works great.
