Re: CNG refil adapter + ??'s

I know it's an old thread, but if you've been going to Gaithersburg, you'll be very happy to learn that the CNG station by BWI is now public (no longer MD State only). It appears to be open 24/7,...

Re: Replacing Chainplates on a Sabre 34

Julie,

As others have guessed, that boat has major problems. The first picture is the port upper shroud chainplate, and it's really bad. The bolts at the bottom end have crushed the plywood --...

Got it! Thanks a lot. I've downloaded it and added it to my collection of manuals. A nice document, although not quite what I was hoping for. But, from what I understand, it's about the best I'll...

I too am a fairly new Sabre owner ('79 34-I, #063) with CNG and would love to find a lead on a manual for the stove. A scanned copy would be great -- it can then be shared with the world!

Well, the tank is out. Not a terribly bad job -- less than two hours, once the fuel was out of it. And, no destructive access issues, which is a plus.

The tank corroded through from the outside....

Ya know, there are a handful of people on here whose opinion, at least for me, counts for extra votes. So, this question has exactly two responses (so far), both from that class of members, both...

New Diesel Tank -- 90 degree bend

My 30 year old aluminum tank has decided to leak. At least it did it in the winter, instead of the sailing season. I have emptied it, so it is no longer leaking, but I have yet to pull it. ...

Kaluvic,

Your picture is sweet!

I like your yellow negative -- I'm probably going to go that way with all new negative wiring I do.

What gauge is your cabling? I'm thinking of upgrading my...

Ground DC Cable Color

I'm going to be replacing my "welding cable" battery cables as directed by my surveyor. ABYC recommends Yellow for the negative to avoid confusion with AC Black which is hot -- a very good idea. I...

So the way I'm reading this is that, despite "regs" that are probably a good idea and very appropriate to incorporate into new construction, I'm not being "stupid crazy" to figure that 30 years of...

Battery ventilation

Wemsail,

Very sorry to hear of your loss. Is the boat still around, or has it gone away? My need is rather unique, and I hope you can help. My '79 was dinged by the surveyor for failure to...

Rich,

My question remains, and politics and engineering (I happen to be a Mechanical Engineer by degree, but oils are NOT my specialty) aside, reality comes into play. I understand the first...

So RichH, maybe you can answer my question. My new-to-me 1979 Volvo MD11C came with very specific oil recommendations by the engineers who designed it. I'm in your camp that the engineers are the...

"Extra" connections to the batteries

I have a typical two battery system, with heavy duty cables (#1) going to a 1-both-2 switch, and then to the starter and the main panel. In another thread, I've discussed and decided to put a fuse...

I'll second the thought that this shouldn't happen, for three reasons.

First, the seacock SHOULD have 3 bolts (or lag screws) through a flange and into the hull, making it impossible to turn.

It would be an incredible buy, but it's not complete. It's only the readout -- the part that actually gets the information, the "transducer," isn't included. It's kind of like buying a monitor...

HelloSailor, you hit on exactly my question. Yes, it's a 1979 engine. And, while I downloaded the manual this month, it's original to the vintage. And, yes, oil has come a LONG way in 30 years. ...

Fascinating discussion, and one I'm very interested in right now. Especially MikeyMo's thoughts, since we own similar boats, but maybe not the same engines. I have just bought a Sabre 34-I (1979)...
