Re: F-36 Article in Soundings Magazine

I liked this quote: When Lisa said she liked it, I knew this was the boat for us.” Yeah, I have the last word at my house too, Wayne: "Yes, dear." LOL! But really the importance of spousal buy-in cannot be overstated. My wife does not like ladders, which is only one of the reasons we have the tricab...

Mr. Clean magic eraser?

The cured silicone is impervious to just about everything. Not supposed to use silicone to seal gasoline lines, so that is a hint.

Re: Aaron Bocknek -- 1960 to 2016

Glad you found the forum. I have almost the same boat as yours. Are you in still in the Chesapeake?

Here's a few shots of the future Enterprise on the hard over at Sue Island Marina:

Re: 12 Meter Exhaust Pipe Cracked

Hopefully you don't have something like this going on. This hose was on the head waste line and the cut went past the hose clamp so waste was leaking into the bilge. I guess the hose was too hard to get on the fitting so they slit it to make it easier to install! 20150831_143032.jpg This is one rea...

Re: Domestic fridge on board?

Buy yourself a kill-a-watt and measure your actual power consumption over time. Note that it will be a function of ambient temperature. Size ur batteries based on november consumption rate and you will be disappointed come August. Northern hemisphere presumed. And read nigel calders boat ownwers mec...

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...
