Re: Gas Vapor Detection...

I doubt the sensors work. Lifespan is a question for the mfgr., but i see no reason to not replace them outright. Consider the cost of not replacing them, and to have them be needed......

Re: New Flybridge Controls

Like most boat repairs/maintenance/upgrades that really matter, this is one that makes the boat safer, and one that no guest will notice...... Good trick with the coupling nuts. Similar trick when adding a new wire inside an existing "occupied" conduit: tie two wires to an existing one. Use existing...

Re: Crusader 454 xli fuel issue?

Can you switch fuel sources in the engine room? Would rule out anti-siphon valve and maybe (some, not necessariliy all) filter issues. I had erratic rpm issues and it was due to tired distributor springs. Are you sure it is related to temperature? That said, i have seen ignition coils and resistors ...

Re: What battery charger would you go with? Promariner or Mastervolt

I have a promariner 12-40p. No problems in 5 years, thus no customer service experience. You might consider a dual-purpose charger-inverter. But do your homework first re: battery capacity needed to support inverter. I went separate inverter 'cuz i replaced charger first, then wanted inverter. But m...

Re: Twin engine, dual battery hookup on F 36

I believe the batteries are always put in parallel when starting the engines and the emergency start switch is actually a backup system in case the rectifier that parallels the batteries fails. Or when youre in a bad way and you need to combine the batts to transmit a mayday. IIRC, my manual indica...

Good use of materials. I’ve never seen bamboo used on a boat, but it looks great.
Agree. One thing about bamboo is that it's termite proof.

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

If you don't have a gas/water separator in your fuel system, adding one would be a good idea. We use Racor's 320 series filters with an aluminum bowl that you can periodically check to see if water has been captured. Have you found a gasoline-rated vacuum gauge to accompany them? They have them for...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Additives that remove water don't do much best to pump the water out of the bottom of the tank . Also look at the check valves at the tank fitting . As far as the gauges go it sounds like the senders and the gauges are not compatible . Bought me one of these to remove water from the tank. Pumped ab...
