  2. Turbo Leak 12V71

    On the maiden voyage back in April I ran on cruise for about 200 miles. When we got to the destination nothing appeared out of ordinary in the engine room. A week or two later I happened to notice a spot of soot on the aft side of the exhaust blanket on the far starboard turbo. I hadn't run the...

  4. Is this off enough to cause transmission failure

    Attached is picture of my port intermediate strut with a laser alignment being done. Can the forum tell from the photo if this is far enough out to cause a transmission failure. Last year my ZF 350 on the port side cracked its case. It was after a long trip where I had been seeing shaft...

  7. Spray Rails on the 34C

    During the season, my boat rubbed up against the finger pier. The results were: splash rail chrome trim popped off and the splash rail (wood) was damaged some. Now.... is the splash rail really needed? Can it be removed and a layer of fiberglass laid to cover the screw holes or just fill each...

  9. Head exhaust fan

    Has anyone replaced the head exhaust fan on a 1985 45c? I haven't dug into the project yet and had a few questions, where is the fan located? Is it easily to get to? And I'm going on the assumption Sams carries the replacement fan. Any feed back or pointers are greatly appreciated.

  11. Upgrading shore power service from 30 amp to 50 amp.

    Have a 43 DC. Has anyone else upgraded 30 amp shore power receptacle and service to 50 amp. If so, did you rewire with heavier guage between the receptacle and breaker? Did 50 amp breaker fit in 30 amp shoreline breaker slot? Was there a need to rewire any of the connections in the box?

  12. Shore Power inlet on 53 MY

    We were planning on swapping one of inlets to a new Smart Plug yesterday but when we went to remove the existing inlet the screws just turned as if they had a nut behind them. Before I remove the roughly 12 screws that appear to hold the entire cover on, am I missing something or is that the only...

  13. Bridge Enclosure Visibility Issues- Ideas Needed

    On my other boat, my entire bridge is enclosed by strataglass. It is a single station boat. So, when it rains, I have very poor to no visibility from the bridge. That is not good for avoiding lobster pots. Since the enclosure is strataglass, I cannot use RainEx on it. I also understand that the...

  16. Old Door Locks Question

    The striker plate on my cabin door has worn out and the door will not latch anymore. I know these locks are NLA, plus the door frame isn't quite straight and square anymore, so it looks like I will have to make a new one myself. The striker that was on it is not the same as the ones on the...

  19. Port hole hold downs

    It rained a bit last week, and one of my lav portholes, with a few broken hold downs leaked a bit. Are there any imaginative way to fix these, maybe with a large fender washer? Thanks.
