  2. New Boat

    We finally stayed on our 53' Hatteras over the weekend and things went well. It is a 1978 53' MY with aft deck. It is a single owner (well, two now) fresh water under cover. The boat is still in Missouri but will be heading down here (Port Canaveral) in two weeks. It was originally due here about...

  3. battery changing

    Well, I changed the 32V banks today, all 8 of them 135 pound suckers. 5 steps up and down (and up and down and up and down.....) from the cockpit to the engine room, and made all new cables while I was at it. Wow, that was fun! I need a shower.

  4. 1998 43' cnv lifting strakes located in the bow area

    Guys, can anyone provide me with any information regarding two lifting strakes in the bow area (I assume they are lifting strakes)? The boat runs extremely "bow proud" as the Hat guys would say. I am redoing the bottom, so this would be the time to remove them. There is not enough tab to get the...

  5. Removeable staircase woes

    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...

  6. Fuel Additive ...

    I have read the old posts on this subject and don't see much of any mention of Stanadyne being used. Just wondering why as I have heard many positives about its use from people outside the marine industry. I am going to start using something next spring in my 16v92 Detroits and want to make sure to...

  7. How difficult is it to add a second generator?

    Looking at a 54c that has a 21.5kw generator. I'd like to add a second generator (same size or slightly smaller) since we spend a lot of time on the hook, the room is there. Can anyone comment on how difficult this is in terms of labor? I've seen this done on other boats where they cut into the...

  12. 8V71TI Which Thermostat?

    My port engine was running hot the last time I took the boat out a couple of weeks ago. To the point where the high temp alarm sounded. Since I had replaced the raw water impellers a couple of months ago I suspected it was something with the freshwater side. I pulled the thermostats to check...

  13. Replacement Holding Tank for non-Hatteras

    My daughter and SIL have a Stamas that needs a holding tank. There is sufficient room up under the V-Berth, but I cannot seem to find a tank that fits that triangular space. I seem to recall a manufacturer that makes that shape, but I thought it was Todd, and they do not. Any help would be...

  16. Prop size

My Hatteras build sheet says that my boat came with 23x31 4 blade Michigan props. The prop guy can’t figure out why...
