Re: F36 swim platform

The photo Paul posted looks about the same as ours. Just guessing, the platform is about 8-10 inches above the waterline.

Re: DHS: Your old GPS may not work after April 6 2019

Even relatively new chart plotters may require an update -- mine did. My B&G char plotter is a couple of versions old, so I was happy to see that Navico provided an update for it.

Re: Moving the engine seacocks

For me the advantage of the T bolt clamps is the holding power. The effect of moisture wouldn't be a consideration for me at least, since moisture just isn't allowed around any hose clamp fitting or any other fitting on the inside of my boat. I get what you are saying about avoiding moisture, but s...

Re: Moving the engine seacocks

If you use T-clamps in a damp location, you need to be careful with your product selection: https://stevedmarineconsulting.com/hose-clamps-part-i-design-and-selection/ Make sure you are not using brass shutoff valves with pipe threads to connect to the through hulls. Through hulls come with straight...

Re: Updating Electrical System on 1976 F32

If ur redoing the DC, consider adding an inverter. I can run my fridge from my inverter while underway, no genny req'd. Once alternators replace the starting charge, they are available to do other work, making my beer much colder than WayWeGo's when I get to my destination. ;) You mean I have been ...

Re: '82 Tri-Cabin Bow Pulpit advice.

P-Dogg, on another forum, a number of people have integrated a raw water washdown system on the pulpit to wash the anchor rode as it comes up to the pulley on the pulpit. With all the mud we have in the Chesapeake, I think I am going to take a look at doing this myself. If you point a nozzle in the ...

I have the owner's manual (ordered from Bob I believe) but I cannot find anything in it on this tank.
👍

Could it be a gray water tank (i.e. drain from sinks and/or shower)?

I have the same radar and like it a lot. If only I knew how to take advantage of all its features. Then again, I really enjoy learning how to use it! :wink:

Re: 12 meter mystery tank

I find having my owners manual answers many questions like this. You never know what somebody has added to the boat, but I often refer to mine when planning a project or after running into something unexpected. If you don't have yours, you can get one from Bob at Beacon Marine. He is a wonderful res...

Re: Cappy's f32 rehab

Yes, you connect it to the gauges and use a USB cable and PC to configure. I had to buy sensors for exhaust temperature because I didn't have them before. The cost of Balmor or Aqualarm exhaust temperature alarms is not that much less than the RS11.
