  1. Tachometer sending unit

    Both tachs for the stb engine are inop which implies a bad sender. Iíll be swapping in a known good gage from the port side to verify, but assuming the gages are good is there a good source for DD parts anyone can suggest. The boat is fairly new to me and I havenít needed to order engine parts yet.

  2. Manuals

    A question to those who have bought the manuals for their boat from Hatteras. Do they include the mechanical drawings, or just the printed pages? They have the manuals for my boat, and they come in two parts, the manual and the electrical diagrams. I am wondering if that includes all of the...

  3. Oil change system

    Looking to add a oil change system to my new to me 53my w 8v71ti"s and a 16kw NL genset. I like the reverso setup but with a good pump I could rig up my own manifold and save a few bucks. What does everyone here use?

  5. Coat Rack/Hooks

    Has anyone mounted a coat rack in the salon area of a 53 MY? We live aboard and the helm station looks like a kids playroom with all the coats hanging on or laying on it. Any ideas would be appreciated. John

  6. Kohler Generator Fluid Change on Hatteras 55C

    After a fun weekend of draining and refilling the antifreeze on my 12v71's (~ 24 Gallons per side) I got to the Kohler (Perkins) generator and was perplexed about where the fluid drain was. Any advice on changing the anitfreeze would be greatly appreciated.

  8. White swivel chair

    I just purchased a 1976 Hatteras Convertible. Pretty sure the furniture is original. It has a beautiful cream white leather swivel chair in the salon. I would love to find a matching chair. Any idea where to find vintage Hatteras furniture?

  9. Sling points

    My 1983 53MY is gonna be hauled and I can't find the plates that mark where to place the slings. I found a spot where a plate was as the two holes are still visible towards the aft but nothing forward. Did that plate mark a sling point or where the keel ends?

    Good evening all, Mad Hatter (A 38' DCFB that wants to grow up to be a 48' LRC) has 3 sets of removable stairs throughout the boat. In each case, the staircases are fastened to the wall by a simple metal clip arrangement at the top of the stairs. This arrangement is generally good, but it has...

  16. Repower Opinions

    Guys, I am strongly considering a repower on my 53C. After getting quotes I've narrowed things down to Cummins Recon Engines and zf gears. Cats were over 30k more exspensive. Ok, that being said, here what I'd like input on. If I win the lotto this week I'll likely go with the 700 HP...

  17. Pump outs made easy

    Every time I went to pump out I would have to turn the motor on at least three times to get both tanks completely empty. A friend of mine showed me this adapter that cut my pump out time more than half. I can now pumped up both tanks without turning the pump motor back on. It creates a complete...
