Re: Removing vinyl interior, refinishing.

My Cal 33 has varnished ash in the main cabin instead of the fabric liner found in the vee and quarter berth areas. I like the look. The light wood blends well with the darker teak used for trim,...

Re: Universal 5411 Fresh Water Cooling

Sounds good! Only thing you seem to be concerned about is the temps running a bit low. May only be accuracy of the temperature gauge. In any case, its better than running the engine cold like you...

Re: stanchions

Garhauer is a good source. Here's a link to their stock stanchion tubes. They also have based and single piece bases and tubes. If the stock pieces won't work, contact them as they will make up...

Re: Funding retirement boat

Agree! My solution to that issue was to sell the two-family home I owned for 30+ years and buy a townhouse in a community where the grass is cut, bushes are trimmed, and snow is plowed and shoveled...

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 Cooling Maintenance

You first have to figure out if the engine is really overheating or the alarm is not working correctly. Is the water flow out the exhaust normal? If it is and the water temp was really 138F, then...

Re: Making boat cover / cockpit tent.

Not clear to me why its necessary to revive a 6 year old thread to ask a question.

Re: 1984 Hunter 23 Mainsail slugs

I think you are just going to measure them next time you are on the boat. And sailrite.com is a good source for them.

Re: Pearson 303 question

Good news! Enjoy the "new" boat. A suggestion to rebed the stanchions is pretty standard.

Re: Universal 5411 Fresh Water Cooling

Note that the thermostat would do this if the hoses were connected backwards. I am pretty sure the previous post saying the hose from the top of the thermostat housing should go to the HX inlet and...

Re: Water damage teak bulkhead

I am guessing the water stained areas and the unaffected areas will still look different even after the cleaning. Minwax stain or something similar prior to the teak oil would help even the tone out.

Re: Water damage teak bulkhead

Should help, but don't expect miracles. I would try staining after the teak cleaner, then teak oil.

Re: Universal 5411 Fresh Water Cooling

Yes, check for air in the system. Also double check that the hoses out of the thermostat housing are not swapped. That would cause the water to bypass the HX when the thermostat opens rather than...

Re: Universal 5411 Fresh Water Cooling

Yes, you want the recirculation water to bypass the heat exchanger. I wish the 5411 on my previous boat had the fresh water cooling. The raw water cooling was a pain for many years and eventually...

Re: Anchor storage

I keep my boat on a mooring. While my mooring pennant has decent clearance from the anchor under normal conditions, I am concerned about chafe in a storm. So I store the anchor on lashed deck...

Re: Bermuda jumping off point

Common route is to hop off from Norfolk. Then spend some time in Bermuda, and from there its an easy hop to the Virgins.

Re: Mooring question

How long will you be using the mooring? If only a short time, I would just use the single pennant as long as its a decent size and fits your chock and cleat. Adding a bridle is only going to add...

Re: Yanmar YSB12 -0 Turning Engine Off

Most diesels are stopped by cutting off the fuel. This can be done basically three ways (1) manually by pushing the throttle past idle, (2) manually by pulling a stop control, or (3) electrically...

Re: .25 gal/hr. Really???

A small diesel can do that, but not likely an outboard. A four-stroke will do much better than an older two-stroke. A big factor is speed. Power requirements go up with about the cube of the speed...

Re: Pearson 303 question

I agree with krisscross. A bit of surface corrosion is no big deal. Make sure the surveyor looks at it carefully. Price sounds very good for a Pearson of that size and age. But the survey is key....

As to your initial question, any head unit with Bluetooth would seem to do what you want. Watch would just need to turn off...

Re: Can I reef with this furler

Another problem with those furlers is that on a mooring they can slip in strong winds, allowing the sail to unfurl and resulting in a shredded sail. Saw it happen twice to a Cal 28 in my club fleet....
