  1. Voltage divider circuit??

    On my 53MY, my 32 volt anchor light and white running lights are relatively dim. Ideally I would like to convert them to LEDs but haven't found 32 volt LEDS. Does anyone have a source? I stumbled across a site which described a "voltage dividing circuit" which looks like 2 resistors in series...

  2. Saloon wall mirrors

    My 86 43DC is coming alone nicely. The project now is to remove the full wall mirrors in the salon because the silver backing is peeling. Doesn't appear to be made for removal. Any ideas short of tape and a hammer??

  3. Updating salon/cabin lighting

    I have researched this to death, but as the technology is constantly changing, I figured I would throw out this common question. I have a 2008 hatt GT 60. Was done right before everything switched to LED. So, I have 24-28vdc halogens throughout the boat. They produce a ton of heat, and aren't...

  4. Cruisair AC stopped working

    The 110 volt AC in the twin cabin has suddenly stopped producing cold air. Trigger and water flow ok. Capacitors checked with meter and ok. Coils clean. Placing my hand on compressor has only a weak vibration and is hot after a few minutes. Uses a Honeywell thermostat which has always been...

  6. Salon Door Lock

    My salon door lock/handle mechanism has been a little flakey lately. Took it to a locksmith and he says it's toast. Anyone happen to know where I may come across one new or used? I already sent message to sams so maybe they have it and this question is answered. Any ideas on a part number or...

  7. Deck Dock Box Attachment

    Before we set out to move our boat in October, we discovered that the large dock box on the bow, that many seem to have, was not attached to anything. We moved it to the side and lashed it down, but it appears that it has been that way for decades. Are most of them bolted through the deck? I...

  8. Who knows about BEVIN built DD's

    I stumbled upon these beauties today! I am told they are 8V96's! a custom Detroit built by Jack Bevins of Stuart FL now past. I have read a little bit about them, but the highlight are that a change in the crank shaft, timing, and exhaust push rods drove the HP up to 880, and increased...

  9. Winter Service, Injector re-build re-tip, coolant filter add

    Heading down to the boat with the 15yr old driving, needed a distraction so figured I'd update this. On the list for this winter was a full tune up. Before we got ready for the tuneup procedure I ran a few tests on the engines, and really glad I did. These are 600hp 8v92 TI's The only...

  10. 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?...

  12. Naiad Stabilizer Cooling

    Naiad 252 stabilizers on a 1986 63 MY. The wiring and cooling hoses installation looks like original Hatters work. However, DDs were replaced with CATs in early 90's, so re-work may have happened. Sorry, "Stabilizer Cooling". The cooling water for the stabilizers is supplied by a 120v AC pump...

  13. Replacing butt splices with handshakes

    Is it acceptable to replace existing butt splices on 32v bilge pumps and float switches with handshakes covered with heat shrink? I have spare pumps and being able to quickly swap them in could be a Good Thing.

  14. Tipping Your Hatt

    Until this past Monday, I never really thought about it, but now I find myself wondering what it would take to turn your bottom paint towards the sky if you are broadsided while dead in the water. This will obviously vary from one model to the other, but I was just curious. Is there some sort...

  16. 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...

  17. 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? ...

Aslan has three heads equipped with the latest '80's technological wonders--Galley Maid 32V pumps. #1, I'm not entertaining any upgrades. However, soon I will need to replace the sea strainer to their respective head pump 3/4"...

  19. Early 41 Hatteras Convertible Specs

    Hi. Iím looking at buying a restored 1971 Hatteras 41 convertible. I believe this model was in production from around 1965 to 1971. Does anyone have the original specs listing the draft? I have a control depth issue in my channel. Thank you.

  20. 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...
