  1. 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...

  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. 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....

    So this busted Turbo clamp has now morphed itself into lets service all four turbos on my Covington 8V92 TA's And to be fair, I'v owned the boat since 2004 and have never serviced them. Giving them a hard look after the V Clamp breaking, there is some caked on soot. Engine with the busted clamp...

  6. designing aft stair project

    My have a, 1989 65í motor yacht without the cockpit. Heading down the aft ladder is difficult for the family. I was thinking of a few options. The easiest thing would be to build stainless spiral stairs and attach to the swim platform and the transom, but I donít love the look. Nor do I like the...

  7. 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...

  10. 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...

  11. 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...

    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...

  15. 1973 Ford 427 Engines in Hatteras

    The engines seem to start and run fine but evidence of oil leakage from oil pan to block seal and maybe some higher up, perhaps around exhaust manifolds? Any easy fix or do I have to remove and replace the gaskets? Can I drop the oil pan and replace the gaskets without lifting the engines? Is...

  16. 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...

  20. 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...
