Re: Riding Sail

Very interesting. It looks like your riding sail is fairly effective in dampening the swing. I've thought about rigging one, but never came up with a good plan. Can you give any more information...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Thank you Hopcar, that is what I have been thinking. The drain plug is centered on the ball, so it should be sealed from the outside. I am, however, certain that my plugs are bronze, not brass. At...

Re: corroding seacock drain plugs

Raindog, I agree the green comes from moisture, in my experience, salt water. Galvanic problems will turn it pink. My concern is that the leakage that is turning it green is caused by corrosion of...

Oh yes, it was very clearly associated with the drain plug. It was concentrated around and below it. My bigger concern was that it was indicative of galvanic corrosion and was going to get worse,...

Re: Vetus Deck ventilator

I was able to free mine up by fashioning a square headed punch out of a carriage bolt to drive against the ring. I first tried a block of oak, but it wouldn't deliver a sharp enough blow to break it...

Re: Varnish removal: should I, could I?

I wish someone would develop a varnish or paint that all fell off at once. Instead a quarter of it falls off and the rest adheres tenaciously for years.

When I stripped mine, I didn't like using...

Re: Engine Access

I often do work in that area from that position. It works well.

Before I learned that technique, I once dropped a wrench that fell in under the shaft. While trying to retrieve it, I slipped...

Re: Rudder Post Access Hatch

Did those of you who cut access holes through the quarter berth have much interference with the scupper hose? It looks like it is right where I can put the hatch.

Re: Calling all crapper experts

I used Trident 101 when I did mine. What a pleasant surprise. I found it very easy to use and to fit to the fittings. It easily made all the turns on my 34. The last time I had done a head, I used...

Re: Espar heat on 34

Re: Espar heat on 34

Yes, I have seen that one too, but with all the curves and such on a boat, calculating volume is non-trivial. My dealer is definitely an Espar marine dealer and probably the best in the area.
