Hollow keel stink

I recently learned of my hollow keel in my 1985 Tri-cabin, after I cleaned the forward bilge. I had a strange smell, thought it was the stagnant water in the bilge, after cleaning, the smell got worse and I thought I had a leak, then learned about Limber holes from the forum. I removed the water tha...

Fuel crossover

I have an 1985 Tri-cabin, single fuel tank under berth, it has a cross over between the 2 lines. Should the crossover be open or closed under normal operation?

Re: Found in dash

1985 Tri-cabin, how's it work, I know how a diode works. Does it automatically connect battery banks?
