Re: Trying to get an 11 Meter on Plane

One thing I noticed is the rudders are straight out. Don't they have to be 1.5 degrees in. Now just figure out how to do that and let me know. Or does it really make a difference? Oh, I have a picture showing where a larger piece of metal has been added to our trim tabs.

Re: where are windshield washer pumps on international

On our 11 meter it is under the sink on the wall to the stern. Yours being a newer model It could be in the same area. It is a solenoid. Hope you can find it.

Re: where to start? Fuel gauges not working

I would check the ground on the fuel gauges. I imagine they have a common ground. It could be a bad connection there.

Venitian Night at the Chicago Yacht Club? When I was a teenager our family belonged to the Chicago Yacht club. Loved it.

Re: Finally got my new Trojan!

Ah yes, A very nice boat. We have the 11 meter and ours is set up for fishing. We changed the L seat sliding door to a drop down door made of starboard. Much easier to put fishing tackle in it. I also have a good way to move the seats back when you open up the engine compartment completely. It is a ...

Re: On the water

We have moved the boat to Hampton Yacht Club. I guess we have been there over a year now. Love it. Lots of things going on at the club. We also have a 16 foot McKee boat there too. I use it to fish and my son and wife plus friends use it to run around on Hampton River. (party boat) We just idle up t...

Re: On the water

Yep been there and done that to a boat. My son and I learned a lot about engines and a lot of other things on the first boat we had. Still learning and hope to never stop learning.

Re: electrical issues HELP!!!

Since so many things are not working I would check the main breaker for the DC panel. Use a meter and check for 12 volts incoming to the breaker. Then check for voltage on the out going side. Make sure you have a good ground point for the negative lead of the meter you will use. If power is there th...

Re: Who has been using their Trojan?

We went out today and check our new radar and autopilot out. They are working great, now we just have to learn all the quirks in using it. We did have a problem. One engine would not start. It was the start switch. I believe finding a replacement might be quite a challenge. No one seems to have it.....

I really don't know how much hydrogen it produced. We would go through about a gallon of water in 4 hours or less. One must remember with all that bubbling that moisture had to be moved up into the house. Unless it drips back down into the unit it will go to the discharge and then drip into the bild...

I do believe that the hydrogen did help clean the engine. I think it would be a viable system if it was a large enough unit and designed correctly. Ours was not big enough and I did not like the idea of thewater vapor getting to the engine if it did. I think there still is a lot to research on it. I...

That is what I am thinking. It will have to be compressed and injected to work correctly. If you are going to run on hydrogen then run on it and remove the other fuel.
I think GM is going to sell a car overseas that runs on water.

By reading the label I see that you have two 30 amp circuits. If that is true then I think all you have to do is balance the load on the panel that your generator feeds. That is where the Amp probe comes in to play or you can read the watts etc on the appliance and calculate it. I think you might fi...
