Re: Hydraulic Ruder Aligbment

in our vessel the alignment tends to be needed after rough water passage and/or maybe extended use of the autopilot. I do keep a spare arm on board just in case but the wife and i check it every time we depart from anywhere because it seems to go out at the most in opportune time. Ours doesn't get r...

Re: Dinghy Hoist

i had upgraded my dinghy while trying to find a more powerful motor on my 9ft west marine and ended up with too good a deal by getting a fiberglass bottom with a 9.8 2stroke. the dinghy was a 10 footer which initially was a issue but with some measurements i costumed 2 strong eye hooks properly spac...

Re: Nova Kool Refrigerator

i agree with duetto as i have the old style kitchen set up and it appears i would have to cut something to get that thing out. Our fridge needs to be replaced but i would also like to go with another brand. We get buy on portable electric coolers that drawl very little amps. I think I would Sawzall ...

Re: places to stay in the FL keys?

thats great info as we don't mind being on the hook as long as we can dingy over. most of the winds lately seem to be coming out of the east so i guess the west side probably will work out better.....if these anchorages are on my chart plotter i should be able to locate them. I figured you have been...

places to stay in the FL keys?

obviously this pandemic has presented many marinas issues and i am discovering there aren't many that can accommodate the width of our vessels as i am learning. Does anyone have any suggestions on marinas in the keys from marathon to key West that they enjoyed staying?

Re: Bahamas crossing

my best bet bob on what you thought was cotton in the pickup lube was that white bilge paper they give you when you fuel up....people have to be careful not to let that paper snag or accidently let some go down the gas tube while refueling. Just a tip to think about when fueling up.

Re: Fuel Pick up tube problem

a simple way to isolate a possible fuel restriction would be to bypass the filter with some diesel gas from a portable tank. If bypassing the filter system which would also include the tank being bypassed as well you can check if the engine runs strong and at high rpm......if the engine runs fine fr...

Re: Flybridge enclosure

i have the total enclosure but I have a hard top to anchor it to. The sides and front are separate sections that can be removed according to how much breeze you want. The bottom is anchored into the gelcoat with snaps. Mine is getting weathered though now and some panels will be needing replacement

Dingy motor hoist

Does anyone know where to get a motor hoist for the dingy? What research I have done shows very expensive systems. Maybe something to clamp on a rail that can be portable. Would love suggestions

Re: stuffing box lock nut

The stuffing box for the prop shaft is what I was referring to. Just want to slow the drip a bit. The lock nut is on there pretty tight so as to loosen it so I can tighten it a bit. I want to put off repacking them with new cord until I pull her out in the winter for a bottom job. I know they need t...

stuffing box lock nut

has anyone had any problem freeing up the lock nut on the stuffing box to make adjustments? Mine seems to be frozen on pretty tight. Any guidance in this area would appreciated.....or maybe I should just leave it alone?....

Re: bleeding process when changing fuel filters

thinking I soloved the filter problem by changing them I still had the restriction and thought maybe it could be in the fuel injectors or motor so I tried to eliminate the motor as a possible problem all together.. I simply used a 2.5 gallon can of diesel and routed the fuel feed into the racor into...
