Thanks Mark. I've definitely come to your conclusion.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

arrrrgggggghhhhh - ran through the thread, raced through the blog, got stuck at the mast wiring.
You holding out the next installment or am I chasing a missing link?
Great techno sailing mystery - reads like Tom Swift meets Joshua Slocum - at the start I suspected the diesel return line - isn't the gimme a point of a mystery? The missed clue likely was in the picture of the top of the tank gizmo but who has time to go back when the hero is poised between boat and checkbook?

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Great find with the screw missing. I was reading through the thread and saw the picture with the clearly missing screw and did not notice it. The ST60 bearing is usually the issue. I had to do the same thing. The original lasted 12 years. Cheaper to have rebuilt than buy new, but nice to have a spare one rebuilt so you only have to go up once to change it out. Raymarine has only one place in the USA for repairs, in NH that will rebuild anything they sell. I need to send them my Auto and plan on having them do the ST60 at the same time.

I don't know what's up with the mast wiring page thing. I just looked at it and it's fine on my end. (Did you get down to this line "More on this little nightmare as well as the Holy Water tank and LED Bulb Swap in the next installment. Stay tuned!"?)

I was doing some updating, so it might have just been a glitch. Check it again and let me know.

We'll see if the screw was the culprit next time I fill the tank. Keeping the fingers crossed.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

no joy - I see the "More on this.....stay tuned" and a hotlink below for "Interior....Pt 1" which loops me back to
TSBY_13_06 : BFSshop.com, is the official home of BFS Gear for Big Freakin Sails!

maybe just me, I've been know to screw up the entire internet before this.

That's correct then. The next installment will come soon.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

BRILLIANT! Is it the diesel sender? The wire from the mast? Could it be a magnetic screwdriver misplaced by the marine plumber whilst clearing the macerator bog?
You Mr Smack can twist a tale and may have a sailing classic on your hands - can't wait for the next chapter.
What kind of anchor you thinking about - heh?

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

That sucks Smack, but couldn't agree with you more.

Our standing rigging on a 35ft sloop came to 12k Aus( 10kish US).

I have never have a estimate come close to actual cost on any boat job. I normally double the quote and then start to question everything - Politely.

Our policy is to very much avoid 'hiring a man' (The title my wife uses on our maintenance checklist) unless it is something we definitely cannot do.

Also agree with Mark. Take it all with a grain of salt, you will figure out what needs doing.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Wow, Smackers - big boats really do make bigger holes in the water. Who knew?

Good luck!
