Re: White gelcoat color?

I'm not sure about the 34's, but our 36 did not have gel coat. It was painted.

Re: Where does head hose connect to holding tank?

Try a couple of doses of Odorlos. We had the same problem and it got rid of the smell without replacing the hoses. you can buy it at Campingworld (cheaper) or West Marine.

Re: Stern mounted outboards

The hatch was cut from 3" above the shower floor, across the angle to 3" below the upper (3" all around). A seal was placed and it was secured with sliding pins. We had it done in Annapolis by a professional marine carpenter. I don't have any pictures and we no longer own the boat. Af...

Re: Stern mounted outboards

We had a large hatch cut into the Shower stall which gave us unrestricted access to the starboard engine. Access on the port engine was already OK.

Re: Emergency Tiller

Sam, There was one on SecondWind. If you contact Don he might be willing to show it to you if he still has it. It was nothing but a piece of bent pipe with a slit in the end. He's on this forum.

Re: E120 Backlight - Time to Upgrade

Electronics reach an age where they aren't worth repairing, especially in today's market where the improvements are a quantum leap above 5-10 year old products. ETC has done board level work for us, and they do a fine job. That said, a new E125 is around $2500 (I'm sure some searching can find a muc...

Re: Yamaha T9.9 Cooling System

Vinegar is not Phosphoric Acid , It is Acetic acid . I would suggest the following, which I now use to clean my heat exchangers. Rig a small bilge pump with a hose to the flush fitting, suspending the engine over a bucket with the bilge pump in it, such that the engine can drain back into the bucket...

Re: Yanmar 75hp and 100hp exhaust elbow

The failure isn't limited to the large Yanmars. I replace several on our Yanmar 18 hp engine on our 36 sailboat. The iron used just doesn't hold up well in salt water. I don't know about their life in freshwater, but I suspect it's no better. I wish that I had available a stainless alternative at th...

Re: Capsized PDQ SV 32 in 2000

"Brother" was on a three boat cruise to the Bahamas in 2005. He lost his engine overboard from a bad mount installation in the middle of the Gulfstream and was forced to sail back to Ft. Lauderdale and abandon the trip. He was not sailing a PDQ, the other two were. We were among those who ...
