Re: Windshield Wiper Blade Assembly

I am not sure about the Napa blades but I just replaced my wipers in March. I gave up at the auto parts places, they were all to loose a fit. West Marine had some that looked like the would fit the arms but they didn't have 18 inch. I ordered some from Amazon and they fit perfect. Hopefully the link...

Re: Power Cat Electronics

Bob,

I am considering replacing all our electronics also. I would be interested in what you decided to go with and also the cost with installation. We have gotten serious about looking into it yet but I think we will do something this winter.

Northern Lights Oil Pan

We recently experienced a problem with our Norther Lights Generator leaking oil when not in use. There were no signs of leakage around the drain plug/hose area for changing the oil. We suspected and this morning Stuart Yacht has confirmed there is a small rust hole in the bottom off the oil pan (see...

Re: Deck washdown thruhull

Mac, The washdown pump draws water in through that small thruhull by the toilet when the washdown pump is on. To the best of my knowledge, all of the boats use fresh water for flushing the toilet. The large thruhull in front of the toilet is used when offshore to pump the waste holding tank overboar...

Re: 2017 Bahamas Cruise

We crossed on May 3 with Tiger from Lake Worth Inlet and met up with AllezCat who came from St. Lucie due to a mechanical issue. Tiger and Catbo are now at Green Turtle at the Leward Yacht Club. We plan to Stay in the Abacos about three weeks and then head back to Florida.

Re: Towing a RIB?

Thank you all for the responses and ideas. I think we will plan on hoisting the dinghy with the davits and skip towing altogether.

Towing a RIB?

We have a 9.5' Caribe with a 9.9 HP two cycle Yamaha. We have never towed it (or any other Dinghy). We will be traveling to the Abacos in May and thought there may be times where it make sense to tow it rather than using the davits. Any thoughts on towing versus using the davits? If we do tow it, an...

Re: Thru Hull Transducer

Richard, When I cabled my second depth finder it was from the floor of the bathroom to the flybridge. It was purely a stand alone backup depth finder. I took the shelf out under the sink and the medicine cabinet out. Go to the cabinet closest to the helm in the stateroom on the starboard side of the...

Windshield Wipers

Hi All, My windshield wipers need replacing and I am having trouble finding replacements. I am trying to replace the blades and the piece that holds the blades and connects to the metal wiper arm. I have tried a couple from auto parts stores and they look like they should fit, they slide on but the ...

Re: Thru Hull Transducer

In our 2006, the boat came from the factory with a thru hull transducer. It is located in the forward galley area in the storage area beneath the refrigerator. When it began to have some intermittent issues I put a separate, inexpensive Hawkeye Depth Finder in as a backup. It has a shoot thru the hu...

Re: expansion tank?

I have a 2006 with no expansion tank. We also do not have a check valve on the cold water line feeding the Hot Water Heater. We have not had any problems with the relief valve releasing water. Unless you have had the problem since the boat was new I would look at the most likely cause of the problem...
