Vancouver Diesel Mechanic

Can anybody recommend a diesel mechanic in the Vancouver Area (I'm docked in Coal Harbour)? I need somebody to undo some of my less than competent DIY work!

Re: Westerbeke W 27 Alternator upgrade

Thanks, John. That's a really good data point. I was seriously considering a Delco with an MC-614, but the physical mounting problem and a decent price for a Balmar kit swayed me. Great worldwide...

Re: Westerbeke W 27 Alternator upgrade

Wow. For some stupid reason, I'd assumed that the 6 series wasn't as heavy duty as the 7 series as the number was lower. Seems a little silly now. For $50 more, I can get the same kit from...

Re: Westerbeke W 27 Alternator upgrade

Thanks for your very detailed reply. Here's my thinking so far:

Re: Converting to double-line reefing

I like the double line reefing led back to the cockpit. Here's how ours will be set up when we're done with it (we're still missing a couple small elements)

Re: Westerbeke W 27 Alternator upgrade

Sorry for dredging up a very old thread, but I am trying to do precisely the same thing with a Balmar 7 series 110A.

I'm not sure where to find the right part numbers for pulleys. How big a job...

Wow. Somehow, I've managed to go this long without ever laying eyes on a crossover chart. You have blown my mind! I want one! No idea how I would build such a thing for a 30 year old Niagara 35,...

I currently fly an assym with a sock and am also trying to figure out how to add a code zero. The graphic is very interesting and quite surprising. It is, of course, a light air sail, and the OP...

Great looking boat and really well done video.

I'm glad somebody else signed up so quickly. I was pretty tempted to shirk by work responsibilities and hop on a plane!

Thanks for your comments. I think the right thing to do is probably to walk away from it. There's another one locally that I will examine in more detail. I'm very glad that I did the survey! ...

Niagara 35 repairs

I just had a pre-purchase survey done on a 1980 Niagara 35. I was disappointed that there were more items that needed work than I was expecting, even for a 30 year old boat. A couple seem pretty...

Sounds like classic prop-walk. The key is to plan ahead for it. If you know that the stern is going to kick Starboard on the way out, then you have to get creative on how you come in to the slip in...

Loved it. I'd agree with 1.5 thumbs up. Could certainly have been better, but they did a great job of telling a great story. Why the heck wouldn't you see it?
