Re: How to secure dinghy

Alan, RE: your outboard question... yes, I leave our outboard on the dinghy. It's a small, lightweight 2.3 HP air cooled Honda. Weighs about 30 lbs. It's enough power to get around. Ultra low 3 star CARB emissions - Environmentally conscious technology. See: http://marine.honda.com/outboards/motor-d...

Re: How to secure dinghy

Thanks to both of you. Very helpful. John , if you could take a couple of pics at your convenience, I would appreciate seeing how you do it. Sounds like both of you rely on adjustable straps to secure your dinghy. Duane ... separate question... your two pictures show what looks like some kind of scr...

How to secure dinghy

Has anyone come up with a really good way to secure their RIB dingy to effectively minimize movement when underway? Here's how I'm doing it now.

Re: Raymarine ST6002 Smart Pilot Autohelm Control

In case others are interested... we asked a Raymarine electronics technician to diagnose our "dead" autopilot... was the display dead? Or the computer? Or the cable? We could not tell. It took him 30 seconds -- he looked at the FUSE for this device. It should have been a 30 amp slow-blow k...

Re: Flybridge Tachometer

I too have had an issue with an intermittent tachometer on the flybridge. We did find that the cable connection inside the lower helm had come loose. So far, tightening it has worked.

Raymarine ST6002 Smart Pilot Autohelm Control

My Raymarine ST6002 Smart Pilot Autohelm Series Control Head (model E12098 - surface mount) just died. Anyone know of a source (besides eBay) for this older piece of electronics? This is for a charter boat so I need it pretty fast.

Re: Battery Compartment dimensions

Richard, Interesting. Let me see if I'm understanding this. You have 5 Lifeline GPL-24T AGM batteries located in the small battery compartment in front of the sliding entry door on your 34' Powercat? What year is your boat? That's amazing that they all fit. Could you please send me a top-down pictur...

Re: Battery Compartment dimensions

Richard,

Thanks for the battery dimensions. Where exactly are your 5 AGM batteries located? My battery compartment holds only 4 batteries (wet-cell now).

Battery Compartment dimensions

I'm about to swap my wet cell batteries for AGM batteries. However, my 2006 34' PDQ Powercat boat is a charter boat in a fleet of charter boats here in Bellingham, WA and is out on charter virtually every week for the entire summer (it is very popular). I need to know the exact dimensions of the bat...

Re: Double upper helm seat.

Not only is this seat a great find, but it is 20% OFF now at Overton's -- $312 with free shipping. I can't pass this up. Our current seat is 10 years old and pretty worn out. Thanks so much for the tip!

Re: Need Window lock

For anyone interested in this issue, I successfully replaced the window latch. It was surprisingly easy. With the help of our maintenance "pro", we did the following... all from outside the cabin: 1. Removed the U-shaped rim gasket starting at the top of the outer window frame and removed ...
