  1. What's Your Guess?

    Assume the following 12V components are powered by the same two, new, Grp 26 batteries, and either there is a bad cell(s) somewhere or the charger stopping charging. My money is on the charger. It lights up and the needle indicates charging.... Have to wait to check. As the voltage steadily...

  2. Bilge Pump check valve issue

    My a/c condensate sump and shower sump did not have check valves in the bilge pump discharges when I purchased my boat. Last year I installed one in my a/c sump because I was tired of water flowing back through the pump and standing pretty deep in the sump. After installing it sometimes the pump...

  4. Loosing hot water pressure in 3-5 seconds

    Weird issue: Water hooked up to the dock. Cold water water pressure is great in all faucets. for all faucets, hot water pressure drops from 100% to 50% (eye ball estimate) 3-5 seconds after turning the faucet on. I took the filters at the end of the faucets, and the filters are clean. I...

  6. Onan Genset Oil Pressure?

    I have an Onan MDJF 15Kw genset and was wanting to see if anyone knew what the normal operating oil pressure should be? At 1800 rpms with no load it is showing just under 40 psi on the gauge. According to my manual it says it should be greater than 25 psi but doesn't say what the top range should...

  7. Bathroom Update

    Time to give the boat updated bathrooms. I am wondering if there is a more modern design available for this tap set? It will not be available in Australia. Are there any tricks to removing the old? It has the plunger pole behind the spout for operating the plug. Any supplier/product...

  8. Cockpit Mezzanine & Tuna Tube Winter Project

    Ok, so trying to get my final plans together for two pretty major wintertime projects on SOUTHPAWS. I'll be doing both these projects in tandem so only one single huge mess will be made on the boat. Hope to finish both projects off before april-ish. Be forewarned, these projects may upset the...

  10. siezed turbo

    Last time I ran the boat we cruised at 1075 rpm for a few hours, all was well. Coming back in I went to run her up the last few miles as I usually do and the starboard engine didn't want to spool up and blew a bunch of black smoke. Hmmm, must be a turbo. So today I removed the air cleaners to get...

  11. If you don't like this you might be a communist or something

    Turn the volume all the way up. Now that's recycling some diesel fuel! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isqfK-JjxwQ Just nothing that sounds that good even if I am getting close to needing to change fuel filters.

  12. Galley Maid Windlass Breaker Issue

    I used my 32 volt Galley Maid Windlass to pull anchor several times since I bought boat. In March we pulled 600' of rode with no issue. Went out a couple weeks ago and had about 750' of rode out. Started pulling in and the windlass started kicking breaker. I was running toward anchor to keep much...

  14. Trinidad SR over Hydrocoat SR

    I am repainting my bottom this week and plan on using Trinidad SR over Hydrocoat. Pettit”s website says it is compatible with ”Heavy Sand and Apply”. Existing paint is not peeling. Any opinions or prior experience with switching to hard paint from ablative without complete removal?

  15. 58' water tanks question

    I have a 58' Yatchfish build in 1978. The water system diagram I have from Hatteras is dated 1971. It shows a tank under the bunk in the guest room and a tank under the cockpit. I have both of those tanks. The 53's had a belly water tank connected to the tank under the guest bunk. I wonder why...

  16. Bottom Paint Prep

    I have a 1979 53’ Convertible and am painting the bottom this week. Has anyone ever had the yard lightly pepper the bottom with the sandblaster for paint prep instead of sanding the bottom with 80 grit sandpaper? The yard I use offers that service. The intention is to abrade the surface for...

    We are trying to equip our boat as safely as possible for going out into open water. The farthest offshore we will most likely ever be is halfway between Marco and Key West and maybe 30 miles offshore fishing. Just bought and registered a type 2 406 EPIRB. Next on the list is a life raft and a...

  19. 1978 Hatteras 60C Major Refit

    Good morning, I have a 1978 Hatteras 60C that is pretty much original with the exception of some electrical upgrades, updated gensets and some other minor updates. The starboard motor just went out and the motors look in very rough condition. No rebuilts documented. There are 12-71s. The owner...

  20. Installing Switch to control dual 24V power sources

    Hello all, would sure appreciate any thoughts. I can usually tackle basics but this one has me perplexed. We installed a Xantrex 3000W inverter with a 24V battery bank on Sea Joy over 2 years ago. It has worked extremely well, and as we are anchoring out more often it was a very important...
