Re: 11 meter fueling issue

Spot on RWS. My calculated hull speed is just under 8 MPH. I used 34 feet waterline. That is my leisure speed most of the time. However, the first mate gets hungry, and the crew threatens mutiny if we dont reach port in a timely manner, so, sometimes we step it up. But only slightly. At cruise speed...

Re: Onan 6.5 died, see sparks!

Your sparks more than likely came from the generator side of your unit. No ignition protection there. That girl is what generates your raw regulated power to your system. There are windings, capacitors, and a rectifier that all are capable of little bolts of lightning ( which is why you should ALWAY...

Re: 11 meter fueling issue

Glad to hear. You should have a screen cover on your vent hose to keep mud making bugs out. If not, you can make one out of aluminum screen that is cut to just sligtly bigger than the vent, make it into a cup shape and push in with pencil eraser side. It will stay put and keep out the critters Good ...

Re: 11 meter fueling issue

May want to check the vent, you should actually see fumes exhausting from the vent during fueling. If not check that first, secondly check your main fuel hose from fill point to tank, if you lift your starboard rear hatch, you can see it pretty good, if one of the supports that hold it up, failed, y...

Sorry for late reply, read farther up the post. Pro glass in Illinois. Google it as I am not home to supply contact info. Windows still look like new

Re: 1985 EX 11 METER FUEL TANK ACCESS - FLOAT

Most often you can reach the sending unit from the from access plug towards the bow. Being it is a resistance device, it does not take much to keep the unit from sending. I could simply reach mine and un-plug the wire and plug it back in. Works great now. To replace, you need to remove the deck.

Re: Drive advice needed - Starboard Velvet Drive failed

I pulled mine out (3 hrs). Rebuilt it for around $300.00 with parts kit off EBay. But you need to be somewhat handy. Engine needs to be supported and re-alignment is critical after re-install. Weighs about 125 150 lbs I'd guess. I have a post on it here somewhere

Re: Lunaire AC Recharge

Good thought on the fins, they look fairly clean (Michigan boat) so air does not run a whole lot. Ill give them a once over.

Re: Lunaire AC Recharge

I did verify water flow. That was the first thing I checked, I also did an un-scientific hand test of the compressor, condenser and coils. Seems plenty of water flow as the coils were cool to the touch. And, plenty of water shooting out the port. Again, not complaining as it is nearly 30 years old a...

Re: Mid Cabin - windshield trim/glazing

I did exactly the same thing. Replaced all the old short pulled out window seals. I contacted Taylor made and asked how they welded the seams. They make and weld the seams BEFORE they install them (all cut to proper lengths prior) they simply use a heated (well pretty hot) steel blade and hold both ...

Lunaire AC Recharge

Has anyone re-charged their Lunaire AC unit? Ours still works, but the cold seems to not be as cold as it should. I have not done a temp in/ temp out test, but used my highly calibrated measuring devise, (Wife, and she says not cold enough). It is a 88 11 meter and only a single unit. After nearly 3...
