Re: Catrostrophic hull failure

These are the pictures from the repair estimate. The pictures I took are too big to attach. These are the only ones included in his estimate so they are the only ones I can attach.

Re: Catrostrophic hull failure

I'm trying to post some photos but it's telling me they are too big. Not really good at resizing them. If I can figure it out I definitely will.

Re: Catrostrophic hull failure

Thanks for all the responses. It's an Express not a mid cabin. I am aware of the holding tank the water tank and the solid hull. No one is pulling wool over my eyes believe me. I actually have a very good relationship with the manager and the guys who blocked the boat up but I was 100% on top of thi...

Re: Catrostrophic hull failure

I was really looking to see if anyone with a 10 Meter has ever experienced or heard of a hull failure of this magnitude. Couldn't find it on this forum. I've searched the internet too with no luck. There was some keel crush incidents noted online but nothing like this. Both the surveyer and the repa...

Re: Catrostrophic hull failure

The insurance surveyor was at the boat Monday. He is the one who told me it was blocked up incorrectly. Photos and video were taken the day I was made aware and went to the marina. I also had a repair shop there to give me a price on repairing it who would mediately said the same thing. I'd rather n...

Catrostrophic hull failure

Had my 1985 10 Meter Express blocked by the marina in November in NJ. Checked on it several times over the winter, last time about 3 weeks ago. Nothing alarmed me but wasn't really looking for issues just made sure nothing obvious or there was any water in the forward bilge either. Got a call this p...

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

It's shot. I found a friend with a full 30 lb. container of R22. I charged it and it worked great....for 2 days then started blowing warm again. As a last resort I purchased a can of the best leak sealer my HVAC friend recommended and that worked for another day. Pulled the unit out to find the enti...

85 10 Meter Express

Has anyone replaced the Lunaire A/C and if so what unit was used. I want it in the same place and not have to modify anything. Mine is above the house and A/C water pumps in the bulkhead between the cabin and engine room.

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

A/C update. When I have time for the boat I use it and haven't really worried about the a/c because I really don't use it at all. Finally had some time to play with the system with an electrician friend. The contactor, like I said is in horrible shape. We bypassed it and the compressor came on. Am I...

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

I've been busy with work and haven't had time to play with the unit. Thanks for all the responses. I replaced the relay and now the compressor won't turn on at all. Can't seem to find the contactor or the tube to temp thing you mentioned anywhere on the internet or Aqua-Temp for that matter other th...

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

I confirmed with the manufacturer that the solid state relay for the compressor was faulty and stuck in the closed position. New one on the way. That's why the compressor was turning on as soon as I turned the breaker on. Does anyone know if there would be any other symptoms from a bad relay other t...

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

Sorry, no diagram but I took some photos of the wiring in the unit. Photos are too large to attach for some reason. There's a mechanism that has an exposed spring on it and can be manipulated to "click" but it does nothing when moved. Is that what you are talking about when you say relay or are you ...

Re: Aquatemp A/C compressor running nonstop

Went to the boat yesterday. Made sure the reversing valve is working, which is. I have no temperature change in the air blowing changing from AC to heat but the high and low pressure lines are properly reversing from hot to cool as I switch modes. I'm pretty familiar with house AC and reverse cycle ...
