Re: 12 meter mystery tank

I recall when the minuteman missile was being put in the titan silos. They were bigger than the older missles. The air force was recruiting skinny missle techs, so they could fit in the available space.

How about a kid, or skinny boat mechanic?

Re: OE Autopilot

My bet for port engine is ignition problems. Weak distributor springs. Plenty of old threads here about "won't rev in gear".

Great choice of boat.

Re: Engine Synchonizer

PO removed mine -- installed some dual tach/synchronizer get up. I removed THAT and installed port n starboard digital tachs, compliments of ebay. My mechanic, nursed from analog gauges since birth sez, "ENGINES DONT CHANGE BY 1 RPM LIKE THAT!" Ahem, yes they do, you just cant tell with defacto auto...

Re: Sherwood GB-7 Raw Water Pump

So the problem is that there is no problem? Ive seen leaking seals stop leaking before. I attribute it to microscopic crap contaminating the sealing surface. Eventually, it goes away and seal is restored. You didnt say how much it was dripping, or whether it only happened while in operation. Was it ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

In an accessible location, closeset to where any bilge water is when boat is at rest, since most boats that sink do so while unattended in a slip.

Mine is adjacent to engine room fwd bulkhead.

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

If you are working on your bilge pumps and need a new project idea (LOL!), you might see if this applies to you. My tricab has three bilge pumps: forward, middle, aft. Boat sits bow-down at rest, so any bilge water heads there. Underway, physics still applies, and water moves aft. The point is, unde...

I put in 15psi pressure and it took about 4 hours to get oil out the other end. Worked well! hope you have same outcome Works for sticky non-boat cables too. Hat tip to ...

Re: Refitting a 1976 F-32 Journal

The issue with concrete masonry units is one of point loading, assuming orientation is correct as noted by OP. Theyre great for carrying distributed loads. Concentrated loads, as would be the case if a pebble got between two blocks, not so much.

I don't have my owner's manual in front of me, but I swear it says Minwax paste.
OK, now I do.
