Re: 11 meter fueling issue

not to hijack the thread, but... heres the deal - the speed between hull speed and planning speed = plowing water speed = inefficient speed. It's hard on your drivetrain and your fuel burn will waste fuel FOR PLANING BOATS: Formula: H = 1.34 × √(L) M = H × 1.1508 N = H × 1.852 Where, H = Hull Speed ...

suggest you google terms together like: PORTABLE GENERATOR BOAT DEATH FATAL CARBON MONOXIDE read those accounts and do additional research after some due diligence you decide if you want to risk your life and those you are responsible for. ....... once you do your own research, it's unlikely a reaso...

Re: Replacing water heater in 14M Intl Convertible

fairly straightforward on the 10 meter, I replaced mine in during the diesel refit in 2005.

worst case for you might be to cut the old one out and replace it with a smaller unit...….

I have been on one 14 meter convertible - ANDIAMO in Stuart, FL - WHAT AN AMAZING VESSEL !!!

Re: 1987 10.8 Meter Sedan Salon windows leaking

google

"boat vent collector box"

Re: 1987 10.8 Meter Sedan Salon windows leaking

also check the plastic air vents - just above the gunnels. There should be a plastic "box" attaches to the back of these. That box keeps rain or wind driven water water from coming in. If they are missing, broken, or no longer tightly attached, the result will be water intrusion. Same thing if they ...

Re: 1987 10.8 Meter Sedan

my 10 meter was fitted with outriggers water would come down and run over the top of the gunnel sound/air barriers (plywood) which eventually rotted, allowing water to enter the cockpit, or in your case, the salon. we don't use the outriggers so last month we removed and glassed over the holes now r...

Boat Weight & Performance Curves

Something to consider: The published dry boat weight for a 10 meter is 12,000 lbs. That's the number I used when we calculated the first set of props for the new diesel engines in 2005 Those diesels are a bit lighter than the 454 Crusaders they replaced Filled the boat with 242 gallons of fuel, 17 g...

Re: 10M 454 closed system overheating

suggest you invest $50 in a decent I R thermomitor

run both engines and compare the relative temps at different locations.

this way you can compare temps and isolate the problem

if you have side exhausts, might check for obstruction in the chamber - possibly some marine growth?
