Re: 10 meter mid cabin bilge pump float switch

it runs a lot I'd get on fixing the cause of that WWG! Well, I wish it was that easy, but there are multiple things causing my pump to run too often. First of all, my A/C drains run into the bilge so whenever it is humid and we are on the boat, there is extra water in the bilge. That doesn't bother...

Re: 10 meter mid cabin bilge pump float switch

Yes, the mercury switches were so much better, though they would sometimes fail but not nearly as often as the lousy ones we now can buy. The reason I am OK with the expensive USS switch is that I trust it and am willing to send extra for that level of trust in something that is critical to the boat...

Re: 10 meter mid cabin bilge pump float switch

If you want the most reliable, check out Ultra Safety Systems Pumpswitch: https://www.tefgel.com/contain.php?para ... itch_price

You'd better sit down before you look at the price!

I have one on our boat and am satisfied that it was worth it.

Re: Air conditioner

On our F-36 convertible, the water pump for the AC system is under the dinette seat nearest the lower helm. When you turn on the switch for the AC, you should see one or two streams of water coming out a through hull just above the water line. On our boat, that is on the starboard side in the middle...

Re: Trojan F-40 Height

If the F-40 is anything like the F-36, Trojan shipped the boats from the factory with the flybridge removed, so it is already set up for a fairly easy removal. I have never removed mine, but imagine it is awkward getting it down to the foredeck. Of course, any additions by previous owners might not ...

Re: Fuel crossover

And some of us have Navico EP-10 sensors sitting on a shelf that would do a lot more good installed on the boat! :roll:

Re: Fuel crossover

Mine is closed for two reasons:

1) I know for sure how much fuel is being used by each engine.
2) If something gets into one tank, the other is still OK.

If #2 happens, I like to be able to get home!

Great minds think alike, as I have a couple of the breakout cables P-dogg mentioned. To see what they look like (I don't have a photo of mine and they are at the boat), go to https://gilwellbear.wordpress.com/category/boat-technical-topics/electrical-topics/boat-ac-topics/ac-safety-tests-for-boats/ ...

Re: Gelcoat - EVERCOAT One step Premium Gel Kote

I typically fill smaller holes (less than 1/4") with fairing compound, medium size holes with glass fibers torn from mat and larger holes with 1708 and chopped strand mat using 5:1 epoxy. The sides of the holes are tapered 12:1 if I am using cloth, less if using just fibers mixed into the resin. My ...
