  1. Were lead pig ballast common from the factory?`

    So I am pulling a fire extinguisher cabinet to gain access to the back of one of my heads and see 25 lead pigs strapped in the area. Was this common or more likely something a PO did? As I have developed a slight list and can find no water accumulating anywhere, is there any reason not to add...

  2. Fire suppression malfunction

    After servicing the fire suppression system on my 1996 Hatteras 54 CV can not restart the main generator. It was shut off when system was tested. Any suggestions?

  3. 43DC - 6kW Generator enough?

    I'm thinking of replacing my existing 7.5kw OhNo MDJE on my 1976 Hatteras 43 DC with a 6kW unit. I rarely use the generator as I have inverter, but when I do below is typically what is running. Does anyone run a 6 kW generator and get away with running similar load? I can get a really good deal...

  5. Raw water Shower Heads

    While changing the hoses at our 1978 J&T 6-71N Shower Heads I see the inside surfaces are heavily corroded. I tried to see the business end with a small mechanics mirror but could not. We are not having any cooling issues at this time. Our Heads are the 90 degree bolt-on model and J&T has them (now...

  6. Exclamation Oil change help

    I have a 53' 1977 convertible with twin detroit deisel 1271TI engines. The reversco op6 oil drain pump has 3 hoses connected in series to the engines and generator.

  7. Major freshwater pump concern

    Since we purchased our 55c we have not been away from the dock long enough to necessitate freshwater but are planning an extended trip so I was looking over the system and discovered this on my freshwater pump. The breaker is off to ensure no power running to it, looking for ideas what would have...

  8. Swaging wire rope

    Any pointers? Im going to make a lifting harness for a 13 whaler tomorrow with a swage tool from west marine that uses two bolts to crimp. Is it pretty straightforward or is it easy to damage the rope/cable?

  10. Davit Flex...how much is normal?

    As per my other thread, I successfully lifted my whaler aboard today. I was watching closely how it loaded up as I know the whaler is heavy and likely near capacity. When coming under load, the tip of the davit comes down a good 6 as the whaler hangs. The arm itself is not bending. The deck...

    My motors are Covingtons rated at 850HP originally equipped with 9215 injectors and a specified 1.496" timing height. At some point, a PO installed M15's.

  15. Sentry charger surging

    My 32v sentry charger occasionally surges, meaning it will come on for a few seconds, shut off, and repeat several times. I can "reset" the unit by flipping the breaker for awhile and it seems to correct itself. I have tried to pinpoint whether there is a certain electrical source that would...

    I have a 1976 46C Hatteras with 8V71TI engines that I bought about a year ago and have been doing a few repairs during that time. One of the things I noticed early on was that the cables from the emergency shut-down t-handles on the flybridge were corroded to the point that neither of them would...
