  1. Question for Rolls battery users

    I have my first set of Rolls batteries installed in my 32v house bank and I have a question about servicing the water level. On the starboard side with 8v/195ís I use a water bottle that has a device that stops adding water when the level reaches the correct place. However the Rolls batteries have...

  2. Energy Efficiency and Solar Power on a 53MY

    It's been a few months since I purchased the boat and moved aboard, and am starting to get my head wrapped around all of the various systems. I've taken her out in Baltimore Harbor a few times for short trips, but mostly I'm using it as a condo. My goal is to eventually use it for more cruising in...

  3. Coolant Changes - Latest Thought?

    My mechanic and the "experts" at RPM Diesels in Fort Lauderdale can not agree. Since my boat never sees cold weather, freeze protection is not essential. Currently, my 8-92TA's are charged with Dexcool. Everyone is in agreement that that stuff is not good for Detroits. My mechanic insists...

  5. Bilge hygene....

    Not as spotless as some, but dry and relatively clean, I would like to keep my bilges that way. Everyone probably knows this, but just in case I found these. They sit perfectly on either side of the glassed in bilge connector tube that runs under the engine and they are just a skosh shy of the...

  6. 58LRC Emergency Tiller?

    While I can' imaging attempting to steer this beast with a hand tiller, there is a item in the lazarette marked emergency tiller. Does anyone know if this was a standard item on the LRC or how it works?

  7. Systems Monitor Bilge Level...Schematic?

    I finally pursued the Systems Monitor - INOP situation on our boat. It turns out that these things don't work if you remove the fuse... I installed the fuse and at first nothing happened - which I thought was a good thing. Then, after a few minutes, sitting with a cocktail in my hand, the system...

  9. Whole Engine Room Air Filter Assembly

    I noticed the other day that there was negative air pressure in my engine rooms: the door felt like it was a tiny bit sticky when I opened it. The previous owner had built and installed an assembly to hold blue HVAC roll filter material to screen the top and side of the air inlet in the hull. We...

  13. Starting Batteries for 32v - DC180-8'?

    Looking to build a new starting bank for a 4-71 DD. Existing battery setup is one bank having four 8v195's that is connected to start both engines. I'd prefer not to use the large 8v195's in the new bank and have found a battery recommended by DC Battery Specialists in Miami. I've used this...

  14. It was a good day.....

    For the engineering team (me) aboard Lady Kay...... Removed the broken flybridge VHF antenna bracket and replaced it with an unused one that was further back. The antenna is taller than the shed I dock in. This caused a bad noise. There was a yellow post-it note on the instrument panel. Never...

  15. How low are you

    Just checking to see where your 43DC 's sit in the water. Mine sits with the exhaust pipes above the water. The painted waterline is about 3 inches above the actual waterline at rest. I assume this is a result of it having been repowered with 4 stroke Volvo's that are much lighter than the...

  18. Worthwhile haul out

    I had a bulge pump kicking on too often/too regularly. A more experienced and knowledgeable Hatterati pinpointed the cause. The rudder posts were letting in a steady flow of water. I had the boat hauled out and the work commenced. The rudders were dropped out and the parking glands were re-done. A...

  19. Hatteras 56 MY fuel consumption at hull speed

    I'm on the hunt for a nice Hatteras, have been looking at 53' MY, 58' MY and 56' MY my understanding is that at hull speed both the 53 and 58 may achieve something along the lines of 20 GPH, both the 53 an 58 are the 15'10" beam, the 56 however has an 18'10" beam. The 56 has 8V92 Turbo Detroit...

  20. Galley Maid Head: Won't Flush

    I have done a lot of searches but can't seem to find the exact cause for my problem. In the past, after running the boat, the master head would fill with water but not evacuate the bowl. Usually after several attempts, or manually emptying the head a few times, it would get suction and work fine....
