  4. Really sad news Tom Slane

    Just was told Tom Slane has passed. Have known Tom since the mid 80's, just such a great person, always was there for us when we needed help, etc. I know he has been fighting it for a very long time, always with a such a positive attitude. I will miss him greatly, this community has lost probably...

  5. Galley Maid Windlass info

    My windlass has never been set up correctly, and I've actually never used it. The main anchor was missing when we bought the boat, also the chain. The backup anchor was in its place, with the rope going in the wrong spot. The windlass was never operational, etc... I eventually got power to it and...

  6. Hynautic Steering - Need Advice

    Our flybridge steering unit is leaking like a sieve again. Pools of steering fluid in both forward corners of the flybridge. It just runs right out the center of the shaft. My mechanic tells me it's not a user-serviceable unit and that if it's leaking that bad I need to disconnect it and send it...

  9. Water Tanks not filling up

    I have a 1981 61' MY model that got extended to 70' cpmy. I went back on the water tank recently and I run out of water ever couple days. I'm not a big water user, so I bought a flowmeter and tracked the amount of water going into the system. It overflowed at 58.9 gallons. This explains...

  10. New Props - Michigan DQX

    I am thinking about pulling the trigger on some new Michigan DQX’s, I have done some reading and everybody seems to love them on other boating forums, but none of them are Hatteras owners. It's mostly a lot of sport fish guys. I wanted to see if anybody here has tried them and what your experience...

  11. Vetus Bow Thruster

    My 12 year old Vetus bow thruster is not working. I have proper 26v across the unit but it won't turn. The prop turns the shaft freely. Prior to stopping, the unit ran with diminishing thrust for a couple of years. So the tech's conclusion is that the motor needs new brushes and windings. ...

  15. Cap or hand rail replacement

    Hello everyone. Have any of you used the plastic or fake wood material commonly used in house decking to replace the cap or hand rails? How did it turn out? Does it look or feel cheap? Is there a high gloss version to mimic a nice varnish job?

  16. Oil leak at crank pulley retaining bolt

    I took off both crank pulleys some years ago to replace the front crank seals. Not an issue and all went back together fine and dry until now. The crank pulley retaining bolt didn't have any type of gasket under the washer on either engine. Didn't give it a thought then but now I assume the...

  17. What do you wish you knew before you got a davit system?

    Our 54' Hatteras has no davit. I want a dinghy, if for nothing else, to get street cred as I putter down the ICW. We are flexible on time as I don't think it will become a true pain point until next year when we can hit the Bahamas. What do you wish was different about your davit? We have a...

  19. Turbo Blankets for sale

    A fellow HATTERAS owner purchased these only to find out after rebuilding the motors they were the wrong size. He paid over 250.00 for each and wants to get 200.00 for each. I’ll add a few photos. For more photos send me a private message and I’ll text them to you. Thanks.

  20. 903 heat exchanger”radiator” fitting for cap damaged.

    It is cut all most completely off at the surface of the steel tank. Recommendations range from epoxy, silver solder or brazing. Everyone wants tank removed. Fifty year old bolt removals seems like a nightmare of problems. I’m thinking of connecting the fitting to the plate off the boat and then...
