Re: window gaskets

Any current advice on the removal and replacement of the window gaskets? I assume that they are just seated mechanically and without any sealer/adhesive. Any technique advice so as not to damage the gasket in removing and replacing it?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Re: converting salon table to drop-leaf

We removed the original table with the core. We replaced it with an all teak one where the leafs fold up on top of the center portion. We have a single low and high pedestal. Normally we use the low one and fold the table up when we are underway and use it as a serving table and can get in around it...

Any further planning for a rendezvous in January? Would consider coming from Seattle.

Re: Sealant / adheasive used at galley sinks

Just went through repairing my sink which had separated from undersurface of the counter top. The older posts were helpful to me. Some things I have learned that might be helpful. 1. Chemicals containing ammonia, oxalic acid etc may weaken the seal. Cleaners such as Barkeepers Friend and Brasso have...

Re: E80 display

Was able to get it repaired by Raymarine for $300. Hopefully it will continue to work fine.

Re: E80 display

That's my inclination assuming its fixable. They list the flat max fee as $1200. We're you satisfied with the outcome?

John

Thanks so much for your thoughtful reply. I agree with your thoughts on the options and hope to find that the E80 is repairable or if not that I can find a reasonably priced replacement of the same.

Best wishes.

E80 display

The Raymarine E80 display on my bridge has failed. I am not sure if it is repairable. Apparently the current Raymarine equipment is not compatible with what is one the boat. Does anyone know of a source of E80 display that I might be able to use to replace the one I have. The rest of things seems to...

Re: Newbies seeking Guidance

I too am curious about the change in engines. Particularly, I am interested in how it is done given the tight quarters in the engine compartments.

Log Racing

This past weekend I participated in a log predicted log race. I certainly did not do well compared to the pros. The boat seems very sensitive to wind and wave action compared to others making accurate predictions more difficult with varing condidtions. I am wondering if any others have experience lo...

Re: Honda 15

Unrelated use but I have a Torquedo on my dinghy. I like it for that application. It is clean, quiet and no other liquid fuel needed. It is also very light and easy to lift from the water and to remove from the dinghy and store. I have not used it a great deal but the power is consumed fairly quickl...

Re: Replacement LED lights for the Salon

I think it is a good idea to change them as you have done. On a couple of mine, the halogen bulbs were so hot that they burned the translucent plastic cover which deformed and fell out. It seems that they could be a fire hazard. I have also changed the halogen bulbs in the goose neck lamps for the s...

Re: Replacement cushions for forward bench on 32

http://www.bottomsiders.com/

For our power cat we made patterns and had bottomsiders make cushions for our bridge seats. We like them very much. There are some suggested ways of securing them on their web site. I don't know if this would be of interest.
