Parts came in from Beacon Marine.

Thanks to Beacon Marine we can get our electrical system back to normal. The dock power had a problem and I think it caused us some problems. Most of the problems are fixed. Glad we could get the original parts. My son ordered several things and they all came in. We will be installing them tomorrow....

Re: Holding tank sensor

Thanks, may have to look into that way of fixing it. I will get the specs to see if another unit will fit where this one is. Again thanks.

Re: Shaft seal on helm pump for a 11 meter international

Thanks for the quick information. I pulled it today and we have sent it to a rebuild shop. We were given a reasonable price but I will wait and see if that changes. If that does not work out then I will either do it myself with a kit or replace the system if parts are not available.

Shaft seal on helm pump for a 11 meter international

Looks like we have a seal bad on our helm pump. It is the shaft seal near the pilot wheel. Is the seal still available? I hope to pull the pump soon and see how much trouble it is to change. Has anyone done it and have some good advice? Thanks

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.

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: 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...
