  2. Battery chArger size

    My charles industries 40amp charger is starting to act up. I may need to change it, but they apparently no longer manufacture marine chargers. Would you think a 30 amp charger or even a 20 Amp would be sufficient? We run generators 100% of the time aboard and only use my 24v bank ( that supply...

  4. Bonding and Grounding

    I'm reworking Bonds and Grounds as I work through bilge areas and have a few inconsistencies... So my question is what has to be bonded? Any metal fitting touching seawater? My engine seastrainers are isolated from the hull and engines by rubber hoses on each end. No bond straps. Should...

  6. Ultrasonic Antifoul Test

    A full bottom paint is US$7000 including PropSpeed. The antifoul is now 2 years old and its barnacle season over here. Divers came today and charged US$250 plus a bit more to change the anodes. I considered this very good value. The existing hard antifoul is a commercial variety...

  7. 1976 36 Convertible Fuel Tank Size

    I am working with a manufacturer on a quote for new fuel tanks for a 1976 36 convertible I am interested in purchasing. They asked if this holds 370 gallons and what the configuration is. Does anyone have the specs handy for a 1976 gas 36 convertible for fuel tanks? Scott

  8. Corroded copper fuel lines

    I have copper lines for aft tank-to-manifold and port gen running in the port stuffing box area, and they had what appeared to be heavy corrosion. As I'm currently in the yard it seemed like a good time to attack this problem. A little cleaning, and as other have said it turned out to be a non...

  11. Boy are these things built

    Enclosed is a picture of the shower pan from our forward head that I just fought to remove. That is solid fiberglass, not filler and is about 1 inch thick. The entire pan had to weigh about 100 pounds. Total overkill, but incredible quality also. John

  13. Interesting way to locate holes

  15. Spare props?'s

    My 52 hatt sf has 34x33 3 blades on it. I can pick up a spare used set of 32x33 3 blades in nice shape dirt cheap. Would they be close enough to use if I damage mine and need an emergency back up? Both for 2 1/2 shafts

  16. ONAN 20 kw Over rev shutdown

    Oh no, it's an ONAN. During last weekends trip, I gave the generator a good workout. Ovens, AC, hot water heater, chargers, all the usual stuff. After about 8 running hours funny things began to occur. First, the forward AC began making a clicking sound like a auto turn signal. Then the...

  17. NAUTIKFLOR teak flooring on a MY53 // Install

    This project started back in May and never took those "finished" photos. As soon as June came around the family came aboard and those last 3 hatches didn't get completed. I'm hoping for April and giving up on '19 so here you go! For those that are interested the Nautikflor is great. After...

  20. freshwater plumbing

    I had several qest fittings that were leaking so I chose to remove what was accessible and replace with schedule 40. It was an undertaking to say the least but 90% is complete. One thing that was inoperable when we purchased BEATs Therapy was the onboard freshwater system, there wasn't even hoses...
