  3. Dry Bilge

    Trying something to keep dryer bilges. My starboard bilge forward of the ER has nothing contributing to bilge water. The ER sump has one AC unit adding water, and the rudder post on that side contributes underway. But, that water will drain forward, especially with full fwd fuel and water tank....

  11. What's the plastic material on the side decks?

    The MYs all have a plastic "fence" around the side decks/aft deck. What material is that? It appears to be heat-formed at the bends at the stern. Is that correct? Ours has a crack near the bend in the aft port side that was barely visible when we bought the boat but has now expanded noticeably....

  14. Im confused

    From what I read here it seems that most people with 12-71 or 8-71 run 170 degree thermostats and there engines run at around 180 degrees at cruising RPM, yet I keep seeing Detroits that run at 160 degrees at cruise. I assume they are using lower temp thermostats. Which is best? I just surveyed a...

  15. Jabsco Raw Water Parts

    I could use a confirmation that the Jabsco 6980-3100 pump is correct for a 12V71 from anyone who's rebuilt theirs. The DD # from the starboard pump cover plate is 23507972. After 37 years, I can't be certain the cover hasn't been scavenged from another unit along the way. I think it's time for...

  17. Hose on older boats

    Considering the purchase an older Hat (1970's era) and started to think about all the systems, etc. that will need to be replaced. One item I just thought about are the hoses, particularly those that don't have a seacock, such as the exhaust hoses. Do these fail? Do they need to be replaced? ...

The 56 has 8V92 Turbo Detroit...
