  2. designing aft stair project

    My have a, 1989 65í motor yacht without the cockpit. Heading down the aft ladder is difficult for the family. I was thinking of a few options. The easiest thing would be to build stainless spiral stairs and attach to the swim platform and the transom, but I donít love the look. Nor do I like the...

  3. Hatteras Winter Boat Use

    For those of you that live in freeze areas what temperatures would be comfortable in using your boat off slip/dock? Here in Tennessee we saw temperatures in the 60s and I heard several people wishing their vessel wasn't winterized. Our average low is 29, with a record low of -17 in 1985. How...

  4. Another mystery solved.

    I've finally found a "Consulting mechanic" who will keep me out of trouble, for a fee of course, as I do my own work, and if necessary get his hands dirty if it gets tricky. We discussed my SB engine temperature indications which are suspect at best as they disagree with the IR point and shoot...

  5. Damaged Salon Windows on 63 RPH

    Hi all--looking at buying a 2002 63 RPH and one of the few issues is damage to the salon windows shown on the attached pic. The guy who runs the boat says this happened early on with the front windshields as well and they were replaced by Hatt, but this happened later and they never pursued it....

  6. Wheel removal

    Need to replace shaft seal in leaking helm pump (H21S), and stalled almost immediately trying to remove the wheel to drop the pump. The key moved freely, and the wheel moved about 3/16Ē on the shaft, but now wonít budge. Thought I would check here that I havenít missed some secret pin or set screw...

  7. Another Galley Remodel on a '53

    We live aboard so storage and counter space in the galley is really important to us. We never used the galley dinette so we did a bit of figuring and following the lead of Michael & Cindy Ewing on Hatteras58 here on the forums we settled on the design. We're most of the way through the install....

  8. Building a battery bank

    Just curious if anyone knows if you could successfully build a 32V battery bank using 2-12V and 1-8V battery. Its getting harder to find 8V batteries and when I checked into replacing mine last year I could only find one 8V on the shelf. Luckily I discovered my issue was not the batteries but a...

  12. Possible new owner

    Im looking at an older 56 Hatteras MY with Detroit diesels. 600 hours since last rebuild. My understanding is the starboard side smokes a little even after warming. I am requesting oil samples sent to lab for review during the survey. Should I be worried about the smoke? I have not personally seen...

  13. Alternator questions

    We are learning a lot about our new 58LRC, including some things that are not working. No surprise on a used boat, but it is frustrating that some of these tings were missed by the "engine" surveyor, despite my specifically asking for these items to be checked. One issue I discovered is a 24V...

  14. Fuel pickup tube

    Last fall returning to my marina in my 48 LRC it appeared I was running out of fuel in my aft tank. I quickly switched tanks and all was fine. Later I filled the tank up and discovered it was only about half empty. I didnít try it with my engines again but my diesel furnace, which runs on that tank...

  15. AUX Warning Light

  16. Passing Another Yacht

    What is the proper technique in passing another boat? Something big and slow like ours. I radioed and gave my intention to pass on their starboard and the captain replied back that was ok and he would slow down for a slow pass, and then I passed. The part that I probably need help on is that last...

  19. Ignition switch buzzer

    Hatteras 52 CMY with 8V92TAs. Starboard engine ignition switch in "on" position does not activate the buzzer at the fly bridge helm or the lower helm. I'm guessing it is not the buzzer since neither one activates but possibly could be two bad buzzers. Port engine works ok at both helm stations. ...
