Re: Sabre 34 Cored Hull ?

Hi rmw2007,
In the early 80s they were using polyester resin, then switched to vinylester, I believe somewhere around 1985 or 1986. For instance, I know that my 1984 Sabre 34-I has polyester, while...

Re: I fell out of my Boat (not mob)

We only need about 9 feet too, to board at the boarding gate on the sides of the boat. We have a winter cover and naturally this is where the "door" is too. We had been boarding via the stern ladder...

Re: Two questions about new fuel tank install

Thanks pdqaltair. When you're referring to fittings, you're referring to the pickup and return lines, correct? They are SS, I believe. But the fittings that attach to those SS pieces might be...

Re: Two questions about new fuel tank install

Hi CaptainForce. Thanks for the comments. One point of clarification is that we're referring to an in-line anti-siphon fitting as opposed to a loop. It looks something like this one below, though...

Re: Two questions about new fuel tank install

Thanks KMC. I think not painting the tank seems to be the general consensus and how I'll go too.

As for the anti-siphon, I've heard but cannot confirm that it's a requirement only for gasoline,...

Two questions about new fuel tank install

Hello,
I'm installing a new aluminum fuel tank in our 1984 Sabre 34.

First, should I paint the tank? The old tank was painted, but I'm under the impression that this should not be necessary....

Re: Finishing brand new teak cockpit table

Thanks MY36. Is your table a drop-leaf or straight table? Ours is drop-leaf, so that could impact the decision. Come to think of it, I don't think you COULD varnish a drop-leaf table without taking...

Re: Autohelm ST3000

Yes, that's the intent. Like some others mentioned, when we're not using the Autohelm, we remove the belt from the wheel part and let it hang on the wheel hub/axel. This way we don't wear down the...

Finishing brand new teak cockpit table

Hi all,
This is a seriously dumb question that I THINK I know the answer to already, but I thought it would be worth asking for opinions. For those who have finished a brand new teak cockpit table...

Re: Fuel tank fabricator in Annapolis area?

Well, I spoked with the folks at Luther's this morning. The new tank will take 3 weeks to make, so that would put us into May. But the price is reasonable.

That said, Bud looked at the pic I...

Thanks Steve. I'll keep them in mind. They did some rigging work for me and were very helpful.

Re: Fuel tank fabricator in Annapolis area?

Maine Sail, I can confirm there are no leaks or pinholes at this time. The only question has been about whether or not there is pitting which could lead to pinholes sooner rather than later. I'm...

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Here's an actual picture of the inside of the tank. Probably doesn't tell you much, but here it is nonetheless.

Fuel tank fabricator in Annapolis area?

Hi all,
We pulled our diesel fuel tank on our '84 Sabre 34 because we had some ongoing filter fouling issues last season. On our boat, you can't inspect the tank in place, but you can remove it so...

Re: Cruising and sailing in southern CA

Thanks for the reply and the perspective, northoceanbeach. I can see how it might sounds a little silly. Perhaps I should clarify a few things. First, I've been to California probably 50 times,...

Re: Cruising and sailing in southern CA

Thanks svHyLyte. We frequent FL (my wife is from there) and like to visit, but in this case, the proposed move would be for work. We're pretty happy where we are otherwise, but the benefits as a...

Hi all,
I'm looking for anyone who sails near San Diego to chime in. I've been an east coast sailor my whole life and grew up cruising (and still do) the Chesapeake Bay. I know there aren't many...

Re: Crown vs. US. Battery vs. Trojan 130 amp hour batteries

Just a quick follow-up, we decided on the Trojans. Just couldn't get a great price locally on the US Battery model, so that seemed like the way to go. Should be picking up the SCS225s on Thursday. ...

Re: Crown vs. US. Battery vs. Trojan 130 amp hour batteries

Yep, already working with them! Great service over there. I might ask if they give a discount for our club too though. :)
