    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...

  8. New Starting Bank 8V71Ti

    All; While there's a thread about re-inventing the house bank here, what about new battery technology for starting banks? I'm trolling for comments on using 16V racing batteries for the starboard starting bank. A few battery sales folk who love selling me 4D 8V batts are suggesting I try...

  15. Jabsco Raw Water Parts

    I could use a confirmation that the Jabsco 6980-3100 pump is correct for a 12V71 from anyone who's rebuilt theirs. The DD # from the starboard pump cover plate is 23507972. After 37 years, I can't be certain the cover hasn't been scavenged from another unit along the way. I think it's time for...
