  1. What have I done?

    Over the years I owned several boats. Boston Whaler, Fisher, Nitro, Regal, and 2 Sea Rays 24 and 36 respectively. Now freshly retired my obviously limited mental capacity has had me make the decision that I must have a “retirement” boat. Having the same dreams as many of you have, I decided on a...

  5. Aft bulkhead repair/replacement

    Tore out our old tackle locker and found the bulkhead pretty well rotted. Mostly the sides but also behind the bait freezer and under the window. Anyone done this project? Looks like it's 3/4 and 1/2" ply laminated together. The top of the ply is tabbed to the bridge bottom but I can't tell where...

  6. Quick Lift QLRN1000 #1,000 Davit Behavior

    Anyone experienced similar? Launched #800 tender per usual procedure. When I retrieved the tender, the davit operated normally with one exception. Immediately upon stopping the hoist, the cable began to slowly pay back out. This repeated during the entire hoist and inboard swing—sure made the...

  7. Cool My 1st Hatt - 1984 52C

    Well, I bought the old girl from a very kind Virginia gentleman with a winter home across the river. It's the first time either of us sold/bought a boat without using a broker - and it worked out great. He had to sell because of a personal loss and was glad to see it go to someone he could tell...

  10. Surveyor Recommendations - VA Area

    I am looking seriously at a boat in Virginia, I’m down in florida and the usual suspects are so busy these days that that’s too much of a hike. Who’s a good surveyor in the Norfolk area ? Also if anyone knows a good engine surveyor familiar with Detroits, I would much appreciate the recommendation.

  11. Power and temp remote monitoring

    couple of weeks ago, the subzero double drawer freezer on the 84 decided to shut down for no reason. Of course it happened when the boat wasn’t used much and it took me about 4 days to discover the mess . Lost about $1000 worth of meat... reset the breaker and the freezer restarted just fine I...

  15. Rayline spotlight overheat

    Hello, I have a vintage 'Rayline 1-Mile' spotlight on Mad Hatter. It's beautiful, and it works. Or, it did. The other day, after smelling electrical burning, I noticed the wires that feed into the back of the Rayline joystick (via a 9 wire plug) had started to over heat. I quickly turned the...

  16. Rerouting Flybridge Drain

    I've been regularly irritated with the flybridge drain layout from Hatteras. The port side of the bridge drained under the bench and was, essentially, released to run between the inner and outer flybridge sides. Seems like a sloppy system that let the water spread out and keep the cabling...

  18. Shore power cord joining, Yes or No.

    My boat came with one 25' 50/250 cordset. I would like the ability to reach at least 50'. Would you buy another 25' or go ahead and grab the 50'. Thanks

  19. Trim Tab

    One of my trim tabs broke (in half). The hinge broke on one side and hydrodynamics did the rest. They are fiberglass and shaped to match the boat. I guess I need to make a mold and make a new one?
