Re: Monomatic toilet

Like Prowlersfish said, this is a recirculating system. You will have an incoming water feed to the head that goes to the right hand side (looking at it from the front). Just to its left will be a vent fitting that goes out through a through-hull. You may (should) have a shutoff valve for the water ...

Re: 75 F32 Accessories Switch

I believe Trojan installed them for any Accessories that maybe added latter . I have 2 myself . +1 It would have started out as an additional 15A circuit for whatever you may want to wire to something, but you would have to trace wires to see if any previous owner has connected it to anything. I ha...

Re: Engine issues

Couple of things... both temps - way too high. Running engines at different RPMs - why? If they were actually in synch you have gauge or wiring issues, if they were not in synch and you just chose to run them at different RPMs..... just gonna leave that one alone for now. 21mph for WOT - you are dow...

Re: F25 Bilge and Limber holes

It's about more than just keeping engine crud out of the forward bilge. The limber holes are there to let water that may accumulate int he bilge flow fore and aft. Not sure about the F25, but a lot of the F boats sit 'bow down', so any water that finds its way in, even if from a rudder post packing ...

Re: Waste Tank Size F-32 V-Berth Location

Not sure what size it is, but at some point in my boat's life someone added a holding tank under the v-berth. Head was the original Monomatic recirculating unit, but they plumbed a waste hose out the back of it to feed the holding tank. The head has a 'discharge' fitting. Tank is a funky shape, desi...

Re: COVID-19 Michigan Boating Season

So if I am passing thought or just a boater there I still come to the dock store for food, ice, bait and other provisions but no fuel ? But if I am a live aboard I can buy fuel ? Make no sense . Half our live a boards don't leave their slips here ( could not with out a tow ) the other half once a y...

Re: COVID-19 Michigan Boating Season

Think I also saw something recently that Ft Lauderdale Marina was only able to sell fuel to Coast Guard and police or something like that. Acually just checked, and they have this up on their web site: Effective immediately, Sunday, April 5, 2020 16:00 EDT, the Lauderdale Marina fuel dock is ONLY pe...

If needed I bet the o-rings could be matched up and that's what fails most the time
I have bought o-rings from the Canadian operation of these guys in the past with good results : https://herculesus.com/ . Just need to identify the specs for ID / OD and planned usage (water, fuel, oil, etc).

Re: BUZZER/ALARM ISSUE

What make / model of engine synch do you have? Engine alarms are usually set up to warn based on things like temperature or oil pressure issues, or if an engine quits (again, picks up on zero oil pressure). Perhaps you just have a wiring issue. Has anyone done work on the boat recently and maybe rec...

Re: Trojan vs Trojan

Didn't switch, but did look at both series. Space, layout, and 'feel' were big things when the wife and I were looking. Decided we were less of a fan for the 'euro' styling of the Internationals, the curved lines and everything being rounded in the interior, the use of lots of colour, etc... and jus...

Re: leak

YAY !!! I (might have) got one right! But all joking aside, where water comes in and where you see it can be very different places! Water has a nasty habit of following the least resistant path downwards, but also taking advantage of any 'wicking' action upwards before it goes down! I have noticed t...

Hmmmm.. my tabs are mounted on the hull bottom, with hinge tight to and parallel with transom. Maybe it was a model year thing? Added Bennett tabs to my father's 1969 28' Sea Skiff, and do recall cutting and shaping shims for the transom curve to mount the tabs, but need someone to explain how / why...

The Trim tabs . And prop nuts on wrong . Sorry - missing something here. What's wrong with the tab?
