Re: Bulkhead Sealing

On my tricabin (which has pumps forward, middle and aft), there are "emergency" breakers at the bottom of the panel. If you turn off the DC mains, these will stay on. If you have those, that is where you should connect any new (or all of your) bilge pumps. Good luck! Note also that I have my mid (en...

Re: Advice Sought for F25 pull and update

If the only reason that you are pulling the motor is to change the plugs, you might investigate these: https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-568-010-Expansion-Plug/dp/B0011MWHY8/ref=sr_1_24?dchild=1&keywords=Dorman+Expansion+Plug&qid=1600121217&refinements=p_n_availability%3A1248792011&s=automotive&sr=1-24#...

Re: tri cabin wiper motor grounding

When faced with a zero-extra width piece of fabric after I took down the overhead just inside the aft cabin, I glued the removed fabric to a piece of 1/4" ply, then screwed it into place, using small screws in lieu of the staples in the cover trim around the edge, which had been glued to the fabric....

Re: tri cabin wiper motor grounding

After further review..... You may be able to access the windshield attachment by only pulling the plywood piece that spans the slope at the overhead height transition. If you can find and reach the ground wire bolt there, you may be able to avoid half-assing it, or waiting. Wipers are a safety featu...

Re: tri cabin wiper motor grounding

Most welcome. In the meantime, as a temporary fix, you could run a wire from the ground available in the helm console, to any existing screw into the inside of your windshield (or install a new screw, depending on your tolerance for extra holes in things -- mine is near zero). When you do pull your ...

Re: tri cabin wiper motor grounding

Drop your headliner. Inspect frame attachment bolts. Mine is grounded through one of them.

Re: Potential Purchase Advice

Tricabs are great boats, so long as fishing is not your primary activity. I believe that year has a small aft cockpit (prone to rotting -- google is your friend) and two beds in the aft cabin. They will be hot to lay on after running. I have the center-line full-sized bed, and a bath tub. I sleep on...

Re: Aft shower pump

Good move running it to the shower pump then. The bilge is not meant to be used as a sewer.

Re: Fuel crossover

Some of us have GFS-10 fuel flow sensors inline after the filters to measure fuel flow to each side.

They're integrated into the GPS, which can show MPG. I quickly disabled that feature.....

Re: twin power cords tripping gfi

That makes me suspect you have the neutral and ground tied together somewhere on the #2 side of the panel. Perhaps in an appliance. Unplug all of them, then reconnect them one at a time. But first, check the ground/neutral connection at the boat's shore power receptacles. What is the resistance bet...
