Re: Plumbing tubing

vinegar works just as well to remove the scale buildup from salt water and it's easier to work with.

Re: ICW Northbound-newbie

if you get to cape may and are facing a few days of strong e-ne winds, going up inside nj is an option. we did it 6 times. at least you're moving rather than just sitting.

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

i think the first factor to conside is whether it's an old galley or the newer layout. the newer one has far greater counter space.

Re: OVEN ALTERNATIVE

hi, i assume you have a 2005 or later boat (i.e. newer galley). if so, i think that you can fit a convection/microwave where the factory "oven" is. we have the earlier galley layout and wanted a convection/microwave but our oven location doesn't have sufficient depth. i believe the newer g...

Re: Fuel leak

hi,

i believe dick tushick posted something that maybe relavant. try a search on this site.

the main point was that the fuel tank support material may have given way, allowing the tank to sit on the bottom of the compartment, and possibly corrode if any salt water got into the compartment.

Re: Dripper Guard

hi all,

i installed one on our 2003. the 2003 have the exhaust and water exit from same thruhull in the side of the boat. the dripper guard is less effective on this type of exhaust setup. i would say it has reduced the drip by 50%.

Re: Priming washdown pump

when you release the nozzle does the pump continue to run? if so, it could be an air leak downstream from the pump. the strainer seal ring would be a likely place but we had a pinhole develop in the hose to the strainer which had the same symptoms. if you have the same jabsco pump as we do it we eas...

Re: gps wiring?

on our boat seatalk failure at the lower autopilot always is a result of either: 1) no power to flybridge 2) a bad power feed to one of the flybridge instruments for some other reason.

Re: gps wiring?

hi, you don't mention the year of the boat. i can only talk to the older version of seatalk. i'd start by checking your seatalk connections on the bridge. on our boat we have a breaker for the flybridge power, check this is working. then check the seatalk connections on the back of the flybridge ins...
