Re: 1981 6.5 onan generator

After many years of spending money to fix out 1982 Onan, i finally had enough and in 2014 replaced it with a Westerbeke 6.5 MCG-614. We spend approx. 40-45 nights anchored each season and I was in the bilge constantly keeping trying the Onan running. This has worked out great.

Good luck.

Re: Air Conditioner

Once our A/C stopped working, I ended up replacing the 16K condenser and both air handlers with 2 separate Webasto A/C units. 16K under the galley sink and a 5K in the V-berth. Each unit has its own raw water pump and controls. It has worked great even in 90 degree weather.

Radar Arch for 1982 F32

Hi all,

I'm biting the bullet & planning on installing a radar arch for radar. I would love to know what anyone else has done and are there any lessons learned from the experience. So far I've been looking at Atlantic tower & Fishon Sports for the radar arch.

Thanks in advance.

FUEL TANK REPLACEMENTS F-32

Larry, I recommend replacing the saddle tanks when you pull the engines. eventually the tanks will leak. There are 5 Trojan F32 at the boat club & every single one of them have either replaced, pupmed dry or simply removed the saddle taks. I replaced mine when i repowered (05 & 06). I have spec draw...
