Re: 12 meter fuel tank size

thanks, good to know. By the way one of the fuel valves was bumped during winterization into a 1/2 way position and I believe that one of the side tanks drained into the center tank, as went we went to start it in the spring it was getting air in the line and the gauge showed it was empty (it had ov...

12 meter fuel tank size

Does anyone know the individual fuel tank sizes of a 12 meter aft cabin? I know the total is 400 gal but there are 3 tanks, port, stb and center. I'd like to know the capacity of the individual tanks.

Re: New member intro... Any 12 Meter Motor Yacht owners here?

I never had to do anything to prime the vacu flush. Not sure what he is referring to. I believe the only thing under the floor in the area you're talking about is the pump for the fwd air conditioning, but again I never had to prime it. For the entertainment center there is a button to the right sid...

Re: Diesels The perfect engines or not ?

bought a 1989 12 meter motor yacht this year with twin 6 71 Detroit's and love it. First time with diesels. There is very little if any fumes in engine compartment and I get as good mileage as I did in my 10 meter mid cabin with gassers. And the 12 meter is about twice as heavy. In addition to all t...

Re: Tinting windows

I have a 12 meter motor yacht that we just got this year and there are black covers for the front windshields. They do greatly reduce the heat but I was thinking a white mesh-like material Ive seen would be better for heat and not darken the cabin as much. Does anyone know what the material is or ca...

Re: Crazy Idea...

i'm looking to get an aft cabin and keep it in Fl and use it as a condo for the winter. Cost of marinas and insurance are substantial not to mention upkeep. Great idea if you're going to get some use of it.

Re: Gas Smell after Running Engine

I had a similar problem that i only smelled gas after shutdown and couldn't find the leak. Turns out it was the fuel/water seperator, the thing that looks like a spin on oil filter. The was a pin hole up high and when running didn't leak but when i shut off the engine it would leak until the gas dro...

after about 2 minutes they stopped smoking, but boy for those 1st few minutes the mairna was filled with smoke. i do have to guess that the engines hadn't been started in some time as the broker said the current owner never takes it out.
