  4. DIY Pump out station?

    Searched the forums and didn't really find an answer. Has anyone ever done a mobile DIY pump out station? Ie: plastic 50 gallon drum on a cart with a pump and the associated plumbing and connectors. And if so' which pump did you use? 120vlt on the dock, seems like an easy project. I said...

  7. Cleaning Fuel between top of aft tank and floor

    Hello all. We are looking for some ideas for a little dilemma we have. Last year we bought a 48 MY 1985 with some really dirty fuel tanks. With some trouble, we had them cleaned. The trouble came from having to pull up some flooring to be able to access the aft tank - we had to cut a lot to...

  8. Flybridge enclosure

    I am replacing the canvas on my flybridge. As you all probably know it cost slightly more than a McDonald’s Happy Meal. My question is this: Is 3/4 enclosure adequate/advisable/recommended for general cruising? More to the point, is going to a full enclosure worth the additional $2,150 it would...

  11. 1977 58 Hatteras LRC fuel polishing

    New to the forum as far as posting anyway. We looked at a 58 LRC and I am wondering about getting the fuel polished due to the sheer volume that can be carried aboard. Am I wrong in assuming that Hatteras made provisions for fuel tank access, like opening cleaning ports? Has anyone ever done...

  13. Refrigerator replacement on 53MY

    My fridge is on its last leg and looking for a replacement. Orig size is roughly 64”H x 33W x 25D with doors off. Problem is my ac panel at the top of stairs, the trim sticks out 1 3/4” so I have only 23 1/2” of width, if I can remove it easily I’ll have 25 1/4” of width. All I see is two plugs...

  15. Dry Bilge

    Trying something to keep dryer bilges. My starboard bilge forward of the ER has nothing contributing to bilge water. The ER sump has one AC unit adding water, and the rudder post on that side contributes underway. But, that water will drain forward, especially with full fwd fuel and water tank....

  16. I’m confused

    From what I read here it seems that most people with 12-71 or 8-71 run 170 degree thermostats and there engines run at around 180 degrees at cruising RPM, yet I keep seeing Detroit’s that run at 160 degrees at cruise. I assume they are using lower temp thermostats. Which is best? I just surveyed a...

  17. Anyone Know where the Circuit Breaker or Fuse is Located For the System Monitor?

    My system monitor at the main helm station is as dead as a door nail. There does not appear to be a specific breaker on any of the panels for it, so without chasing down a bunch of wires, I was hoping someone might be able to point me in a direction. Thx.
