  2. Quick Connect Shore Water

    Has anyone converted the standard screw on hose connectors on a 53 to quick connect? I searched the archives but the comments seem to be about boats that came with quick connects. Also, where is a good spot to plumb a wash down pump, and which should I go with, fresh or sea water?

  3. Allison M15 oil leak

    I have my exhaust blankets off my port engine so I can replace a leaking turbo gasket, and noticed that fresh clean oil is dripping onto the left rear motor mount. I'm not very familiar with the gears, as fortunately, they have never given me any problem. It seems to be coming from the device...

  4. Alexseal Paint Color

    Is Alexseal Oyster White T9128 the same color as Awlgrip Oyster White? Is that the correct color for my 1973 43DC? The whole top side of my boat has been hand painted poorly by the previous owner with bright white Interlux paint. At least those are the partial cans I found on the boat. I would...

  7. Port Canaveral to St Augustine

    We are taking a trip up to St Augustine from the inlet at Port Canaveral this weekend. We will be going overnight in the ocean. From what I have read, there are no space center restrictions unless there is a launch. Is this correct? Also, what is a good distance from shore while cruising the east...

  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...

  11. Salon Shades

    I finally got around to replacing the salon furniture and drapes, which was all original when the PO bought the yacht new in 1978. This was how it looked when I bought it.

  14. Tightening hose clamps

    Donít know how often you guys tighten your hose clamps on your engines, but if you donít at least check them every 6 months you might be sorry. I did mine about a year ago and was running this weekend and saw a water leak above the transmission, so after we stopped I tried tightening the hose...

    I need to replace the wheels/casters and cannot get ANY movement. What's the trick? I have them soaking in WD, it's low 30's here so I'm trying to shake off some cabin fever. I also need to replace some bolts that hold the steps to the side rails. I had one step that was missing both top side...

  16. Portside list?

    I recently purchased a 1980 58' Yachtfish. It comes 'equiped' with a portside list.;) My previous boat (50' Grandbanks) had fuel tanks on both sides so I could move fuel to level it out. I haven't been able to spend any time on the boat since purchase so I'm not sure what a good solution might be....

  17. FP aftermarket parts

    So my starboard engine (671ti 450hp) was starting to smoke a little once warm, my mechanic pulled the head and we observed the bad news. A cracked head that had U valves and a bad hole with broken rings. Hats off to Detroit as this engine still would reach max rated rpms and no smoke (observable)at...

  19. New Cat 7.1 for repower

    Looks like Cat is going after the repower market for smaller HP older boats. They claim the new 7.1 is perfect to replace 3208's or "two stokes". Based on the hp, I'd say that means up to 8v71's could be replaced with these. And notice how much emphasis they put on how quiet they are. Seems...

    This would be easy if you didn't mind making a mess. However, everyone on this forum DOES mind making a mess, especially in their engine room, so here's a short account of what we did today: (we being me and a tech from T&S Marine, the Cat/Cumminds dealer in Crisfield, MD) Although my HEs have...
