  1. Looking at a 1966 41C 8V53's

    I am looking at buying a 1966 41C with twin 8v53's. The boat is on the West Coast, Long Beach, CA. This will be my first salt water boat and first boat of its size and running gear I have ever owned. I grew up in KY on Lakes and Rivers, mostly 26-32'ers, so this is all new. Any advice or things...

  3. Coupling Old Copper Fuel Lines

    I have heard from a number of people that the 47 year old copper fuel and water lines are brittle and can not be flared. I would like to clean up the generator fuel supply and return lines which would require mating them to rubber lines. What is the best way to do this? Can I slide a rubber line...

  5. Holding Tank T-fitting

    I am currently replacing the old Galleymaid toilets with Raritan marine elegance ones. Two of the old GM toilets used the same holding tank fitting by sharing a t-fitting into the tank. Hopefully it's a stupid question, but is there any reason I cannot use the same fitting for the new toilets? ...

  7. exhaust hose

    I'm concerned about the age of a rubber exhaust hose on my 1976 42-foot convertible. Is there a rubber hose from the back of the muffler to the fiberglass exhaust tube? It would be between the fuel tank and the hull, so maybe I need to cut the deck to change it. Anyone encounter this issue?...

  9. Alexseal Paint Color

    Is Alexseal Oyster White T9128 the same color as Awlgrip Oyster White? Is that the correct color for my 1973 43DC? The whole top side of my boat has been hand painted poorly by the previous owner with bright white Interlux paint. At least those are the partial cans I found on the boat. I would...

  10. Shaft Coupling Removal and Loose shaft Nut

    The most difficult part of removing the coupling was the cotter pin. The hole in the coupling was about 3/8" aft of the pin. With the PSS shaft seal, the shaft does not go back very far and to see the cotter pin very well I had to use a mirror to see what I was doing. Retrieving the pin was time...
