Re: General discussion

Have any of you Endeavour 37 plan B ever replaced the head pump out hose?

Re: General discussion

Wasn't that bad in my A plan, Just remove the back of the hanging locker to access the vented loop and cut the hose into short pieces with a jig saw. When I installed the new hose I put a ball valve in line to allow for easy head repairs.

For the tank to deck fitting I had to crawl behind the engine to pull it through and guide it up. I got lucky at the deck fitting as mine is on the coaming and by removing one of the storage bins I could reach in and access the tail of the deck fitting.

Use the best hose you can get for the tank to head section to avoid odour and doing the job again.

Re: General discussion

I have been looking and thinking and dreaming.... you know. The Endeavor 37 just looks like a good choice. Question is, is it. I want to live aboard and blue water. I have been told that the Endeavor is not built well for crossings etc. The only things I can find are leaky tanks and other relatively minor stuff. Give it to me straight. Blue water?

If you look at the ones for sale you can find them all around the world. They got there somehow .

If you are dead serious that you are going to circumnavigate I'd look further. If you are looking for a boat for say the states, and down into the Caribbean and further south then it could be a good choice.

They are a lot of boat for what they sell for and built like a tank. I just feel the points that make them great for the areas I mentioned like the shallow draft aren't what you would like for a boat that is at sea for great distances. If you are sure that is what you are going to do I'd look at boats that are well know to be capable of those journeys,

Re: General discussion

Although the winter is over, thought I'd let all know late last fall I ordered a winter cover from The Canvas Store in Huntington, NY. They came out and measured the boat and built a really nice cover for under $2k. Projected life is 10 to 15 years so a better value than shrink wrap over the long run plus no greenhouse effect. Gave me the ability to work on the interior all winter (3 zipper access ways) with a small propane camp heater aboard.

Re: General discussion

Thanks Sumner. I've been working at it and finally made an offer on a Pearson 40. She was fresh water for the first 25 years and in pretty good shape for her age. You are right about the Endeavor, they had to get all over the world somehow. Just never found the right one. I am now months away from hanging up the spurs and putting on the topsiders.
