  4. Rant for the day.

    My spiritual gift is being able to break more than I fix! Changed the Racor filters today, and decided to remove and clean the bowls as well. The drain plug o'rings didn't survive, probably original to the boat.. no problem, ill just order some from Racor... of course, only in a kit from Racor......

  6. looking for recommendations on marine electrical terminal connectors

    I've been using some of the cheap plastic electrical terminal connectors mainly used in the automotive industry and just hate them. Does anyone have any recommendations on types (brand names) of good quality marine grade, stranded wire, heat shrink, electrical terminal connectors (ring, fork,...

  7. 6v92 oil leak

    DD 6V92 leaking oil. Yesterday a Marina mechanic advised that the oil is not coming from valve cover but is leaking from the turbo. Itís probable a silly question but will this be an expensive repair? He also found a leak in my heat exchanger. Potentially Expensive?

  8. Best Cleaner/Wax For Imron

    Yeah, I know you're not supposed to buff/wax Imron (I assume my 58 is Imron), but it's time to put a shine on both my boats, especially the 58. I had the transom buffed shortly after I bought the boat, and it looked great... lots of depth and gloss. It just never worked out to have the rest of...

  9. Lookout Windows

    Braodusís son reached to a VM I left about windows during the FLIBS 2021. As some of you know Broadus passed away late last year. Theyíre putting things back together and continuing on with the business, at least for a while. Both of my galley windows are leaking. One of them is leaking behind the...

  10. Please review and recommend repairs for hull/deck concerns, Thanks

    #1. Stained deck at rail to deck area. This is the only place like this I have. It is right behind the fuel fill. I was thinking about removing screws, sealing with 5200, and cleaning up as best as possible?

  11. DEKA 8v/195

    Deka is no longer offering the 8v/195 so when you have one that's 2 years old and it explodes you'll have to replace the entire bank, what a crock of chit

  13. Block heater questions

    On my 871TI's I replaced one of the block heaters a couple of years ago with the same brand (Hotstart, 1000w) and it has worked well. This last PNW cold snap had the other engines unknown brand or rated heater fail and I replaced it with another Hotstart system as I had bought a spare when the...

  14. The best bilge pump.....

    No not talking about the built in ones, that's a bag o' worms I don't want to open right now. Talking about how to get the water out of the myriad of low spots in our vast, rice paddy like network of bilges. I keep a dry bilge. When I do work there's spillage. Winterizing, cooling system work,...

  15. Priming Raw Water Pump?

    So last week I was checking the anodes on the raw water pumps. When I removed the brass plug on the starboard engine pump the anode, or what was left of it, came untreaded and was stuck in the opening. While I was trying to get a grip on it with some needle nose pliers to remove it, it wound up...

First phase started with black granite floor over the aft 6' of the saloon and building the cabinetry for the new galley As mentioned a few weeks ago, this will be a much better layout for us as we spend so much time on the aft deck. Many new boats now have this...

  17. Electrical panel acces on '78 Convertible

    Has anyone had problems accessing their electrical panel? I am having a heck of a time trying to get the panel out. I can see where previously someone has taken the air vent off in order to access it - that doesn't seem like a good solution! I have gotten the top portion to come out about 2...

  18. Wood Type - 1973 38' FBDC

    What type of wood is used on the walls of a 1973 38' Hatteras. Would it be Afromosia? Any suggestions on how to make it look good? There is no varnish on it. I've heard of Tung Oil, is that better than Teak Oil? What about a coating of Cetol? Would it be okay to wipe it with 216 or Acetone before...

  19. 1973 38' FBDC MCCK 6.5 Generator

    The generator started and ran all last summer if I used starter fluid to get it going. But it would not carry a load more than about 1500watts. I have since installed a new carburetor and electric fuel pump. It's not in the water since so have not tested this improvement. I'm expecting it will now...

  20. 1973 Paragon P400 Transmission Seized

    1973 38' Hatteras - Starboard transmission seized at end of season last year. Now removed and getting rebuilt. Think it had been dragging for quite a while. Now I am wondering about the Port transmission. It indicates no problem, but at about 3000 hours should I expect the same problem? For most of...
