  3. I Cant Take The Strain

    Old black beauty, my 2000 silverado, let me down. She ate fuel pump #5; so my bride drove me down to the boat and she went shopping. Since I only had about 5 hours to work, I only tackled some measurements and some odds and ends. The packing gland hose size is suppose to be 3-1/2". I used my...

    No rest for the weary... is there! With about a month left in the season up here, we are getting ready for the upcoming "other" season... Sooo... this weekend we finished getting the barely used washer/dryer combo and another dryer down through the forward hatch (thanks ANGE!!). Both units came...

  7. Repowering A 58TC

    First, I realize I've been crying wolf on this rebuild deal for quite some time now, but I simply have to do something with my 58. I still don't know exactly what it's going to take to rebuild the starboard that has a burned piston, but given today's climate, I'm thinking of other options...

  8. Freeing a Stuck Reversing Valve on AC

    On my newer CrapAir unit, it appears the reversing valve is stuck. It will operate and blow heat like I've died and gone to hell, but it won't go the other direction and cool. Condensing unit runs, but just won't push the gas back the other way. Unit was new in December 2007, so I think it might...

  9. Fuller Brush Portholes Replacement

    The PO used to dock on his own, i.e. single-handle, and right over some pilings. Therefore the bottom half of many stbd side portholes are broken out or chipped away. Not a hazard to water ingress, but uglyanyway, plus the surveyors ding them/me At any rate, since Fuller Brush is now willing...

  10. Reengineering an air conditioning unit to “marine” use. Purists should cover their e

    Finally, after taking a hammer to the P.I.T.A. aft salon air conditioner for the last time, I sat down and cooled off with a beer. I started to rethink this whole “marine” a/c theory and the way it is used in our application. Truth be told, this idea was thrown around last year with my good friend...

  11. Removing Broken Drill Bit

    While drilling out 1 of 3 broken bronze screws that sheared off from one of the swim platform brackets, the cobalt drill bit caught an edge and snapped off inside the hole. Tried drilling that out with a slightly larger cobalt bit but it quickly went dull with no apparent progress made. ...

  12. Effects of Running Diesel at Low RPM

    With all the talk of running your boat at hull speed to save gas I thought I would post a question to see what specific engine problems one potentially faces by not running at ‘cruising rpm’ for extended periods. I have a 43 DC with Cummins VT 903s (turbos).

  15. Hatteras 45C vs Viking 45 (88-92)

    At the risk of starting a one-sided brush fire, I'd like to know what the forum would say in an honest comparison of the Series II 45C with a similarly "experienced" Viking 45. I've been dialed in on the Hatt because I'm sure it is superior in a heavy sea but the creature comforts and reduced fuel...

  17. 1987 45 Convertible - Anyone know her?

    Going to take a look at her tomorrow. Made a (well at least what I consider) low offer on it and the broker told me that he didn't think it was going to fly. Called me back after talking with the owner and gave me a line blah blah blah... Told him I appreciate it and best of luck selling. Called...

    I am getting ready to replace the house bank. Three 8 D's. Want to go with Deep Cycle. Having a Interstate guy tell me Interstate doesn't make 8 D's no more. Saying the 4 D is a better battery and litter. Understand them not weighing as much but can they be as strong as 8D's. Also have a...

    Trying to dismantle a Marquipt Sea Stair boarding ladder that has been together for 33 years. The old 5/16" stainless machine bolts are threaded into aluminum and are cold welded, or seized, or whatever, they just do not move. Now that I have rung one off, I decided to ask if there are any...
