  1. Galley maid windlass upgrade

    My neighbor saw me torquing on the windlass clutch nut this weekend and alerted me to a problem in which the tightening can force the main snap ring out of its slot on the vertical shaft. Apparently there is a retrofit part from Ideal that installs over the snap ring and prevents it from expanding...

  2. Plasteak Install Question

    Good day fellow boaters. I'm in the process of replacing the original linoleum floors in both heads on my 1988 52C. I stripped the old floors and feathered the rough spots with a leveling compound which I've sanded as best I could. The floor is a lot smoother than it was but still shows some small...

  7. Hatteras nameplates

    I installed the stainless Hatteras (oldstyle) nameplates I got from Mike, today. Photos coming. They are beautifully made, they fit perfectly, and they look a treat. It occurred to me that they will be the last set of them I will need. I'll save the plastic ones, which I was replacing not quite...

  9. Adding tank pickup / Fuel Polishing System

    I have been piecing together a fuel polishing system. So far I have a Racor 1000 series, a Gulf Coast Filter F-1 and a 110v Oberdorfer pump and a 12 hour timer, lines and fittings. It should be a nice setup once its completed. One area which I am still trying to plan for is around the main tank...

  11. Thanks you, Scott Bickwid

    Thanks to Scott for saving me a bunch of money by fixing my Raymarine Satellite antenna after the factory tech had told me it couldn't be repaired. I was ready to buy a complete new unit. He also fixed my malfunctioning autopilot display by finding a loose connection. If you need electronic repair...

  13. Leveling in hull transducer

    Hi I got myself a fish finder and tried it out by placing it on the bottom of the inside of the boat and it reads very well. I used a blob of grease to prevent bubbles and gaps between the transducer and the inside hull bottom which is not smooth but is clean. I've seen people using epoxies to...

  15. 55 C Flybridge Refrigerator Circuit

    My 55c does not have a flybridge refrigerator but was thinking of adding one. It does, however, have a circuit on the engine room ac panel labeled "flybridge refrigerator".

  16. Cruisair Replacement question

    I have two Cruisair split units on my 36. Both are 30 years old. The marina mechanic tells me the compressor on the little one is shot, keeps popping the breaker, and needs to be replaced. He's mentioned trying to find a replacement which I assume means a used or rebuilt one. He also mentioned...

  20. International Comp[ound number 2

    Do any of you know if this is still used on reassembly of these engines, or has Detroit identified an acceptable, and perhaps more accessible, assembly lube? It's not easily obtained, and is rather costly, particularly given that I just need some for bolts on the flywheel, so I was wondering if...
