  2. PEX for water and/or waste hoses?

    Sorry if this has been posted already, but SAM's does not allow 3 letter searches so I can't tell if PEX tubing has been discussed. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has replaced the "clear reinforced vinyl hose", copper pipe and/or PVC waste lines using PEX. I would think it would be a great...

  6. Fireboy system, 53MY

    I just finished installing a new fire system on my 53. The old CO system was original and beyond servicing. Itís a little tricky on the split ER MYs as you need 3 bottles and 3 shutdown systems. Unfortunately the Fireboy shutdowns are only set up for single space which means 3 are required. ...

    I am looking at a 50í yachtfish that has been repowered with 2 150hp John Deere. I am wondering how these boats handle running at low speed. Stated cruising speed is 7kts. Can anybody tell me how these ride at low speeds? Am I posting in the right section? Any input would be appreciated.

    Recently the salon a/c unit on our 1981 Hatt went out on us. The unit is a split system and was installed around 1998. Cruisair R Series.

    Where should I start. I have flow scans at main helm working OK. Does the mechanical tach pass thru the flow scans to fly bridge Or do they work independent of flow scans? I have no reading on port Tach on Fly Bridge. Where should I start.

    Probably a basic question here, but I don't see it spelled out in the manual: What happens if either the synchronizer fails or the master engine fails, with the slave engine at full throttle? So, say you are cruising along at 1200 rpm with the slave throttle at full and the synchronizer tuns...

    My Onan Generator (MCCK 927-350) starts well, runs for 8-9 minutes then stops. The cooling/fresh water flow is good, the fresh water hoses are clear, the impeller is good.
