Re: Bought 12 meter, qx on overboard discharge

My AC thru hull is next to the generator thru hull amidships in the center bilge near the forward engine room wall.

Re: Bought 12 meter, qx on overboard discharge

The hose goes from the holding tank to a splitter, where one goes to the starboard gunnel, and the other goes to a macerator under the starboard cockpit deck into a through hull on the starboard side underwater in line with the raw water wash down inlet (which is in the same place on the port side).

Re: 12 Meter Pulpit

I'm guessing the 1" starboard is there to cover up the blemishes of the old setup. I'm trying to understand why the Sea Wolf 520 was installed on the 4" block to begin with. Was is for decoration or for purpose? It seems like if your setup works fine with just a 1 inch lift a zero inch lift after I...

Re: 12 Meter Pulpit

The previous owner put in the aluminum. There is like a 1" block of Starboard under it. We changed out the existing anchor for a Rocna 44lb. Vulcan Anchor Model 20 with 100 feet of 5/16" G4 chain spliced to 200 feet of Nylon Brait 8-Strand Rope. It works fine for us. The windlass sits right above th...

Re: Buying a 12 meter conv. Need Frig

We have 671 TIB's and cruise about 20 MPH at 2000 RPM's. At this speed we burn about 40 gallons per hour. If you are talking about the front Salon windows, a previous owner removed them and glasses it all over to both "update" the look of the boat and to get rid of leaks.

Thanks el sea!
Is this a perfect fit to the cutout in the 12 meter?

Lottanerv
Delray Beach Fl

It was for us, but the cut out dimensions based on the West Marine link are 52-7/8"H x 23-1/4"W x 23-3/4"D to verify.

We are a 1988 12 meter International Sedan with DD 671 TIB's. So kind of close, also only about 2 hours away in Fort Myers.

We love our Mastervolt, and the remote monitor we installed in the panel.

Re: F32 Vibration Briefly in Reverse

You want to see vibration, try backing and pivoting with 2 diesels while chasing a fish.

I use Marinco 303SSEL-B if they are in fact 30 amp locking like I think.

Re: 1981 6.5 onan generator

Marine gensets have come a long, long way over the last 40 years. Here in Florida, we can boat all year long and we rely on the genny for the fridges, battery charger, icemaker and air conditioning. It is as important to our experience as are the main engines. RWS I agree. For us: No Generator = No...

Re: 1981 6.5 onan generator

We dumped our Onan shortly after we bought the boat and it crapped out. We went with a Westerbeke 7.6 EGTD. We run it probably 300 hours a year.
