Re: Yanmar 3HM35F Dipstick

Bill, great info about our engines. The capacities mentioned are consistent with my memory. I've got two dipsticks. I'll check them both and record measurement you list.

Ours are pretty high...

Re: I Paid a Dude. And I Liked It.

Reminds me of a 'woman' I saw in Phnom Penh the other night. Some tourist got a surprise.

In everything I do, I try to defer to professionals when it's a project that is hard to get right as a...

Dumbest passage plan since the BOUNTY sailed straight into Sandy?

Wow. Delusional is right.

I think there is a real disconnect for new sailors sometimes that enables this kind of cavalier behavior. Too much TV, or books, and just,not realizing the gravity of a...

Re: Boat Loan

Yep no nitpicking here either, but tax code is is tax code! If there was ever a thing to nitpick about...... :) A boat with those qualities does qualify. It's a salient point for this thread, which...

Re: Priming Racor fuel

Is your filter full of fuel? Everything is filled? You mentioned the level in the filter going down as you pump, but that's not right. You should not have to bleed at the injectors after a filter...

Turn that frown upside down! Lets talk NEW engines!

I'm running common rails on the farm now, and one of the sedans. They are great motors. There's a lot less to go wrong on my crude 3HM35F, and no port for diagnostics. Long term we're sure to be...

Re: Bronze Oval Portlights

Has anyone ever had an accident on these ports? I've thought about wearing a helmet in a seaway, having at least one near miss with my head/face.

Re: Bronze Oval Portlights

They do look like the same design, mine is outfitted with ovals. They're very basic, but solid. These look like they have some thumbscrews or something for the screens, like you said, Bill.

Re: Pacific Seacraft 63' ketch nears completion

When you're good, it's hard to hide. The yard seems to have done a great job putting your plans into play, she's really nice. I would love to be in a fresh breeze in that center cockpit. Is that yard...

Re: Are we in over our heads?

Just temper your expectations and take your time. Great if you make it to the Bahamas but maybe southwest Florida is fine too. Or SC or GA. Keep and open mind and learn as you go. This isnt forever....

Re: Crealock-34 head

That's great to hear so many stories of success rebuilding old K's. Mine gets intermittent use so I doubt that's very good for the seals.

I have a rebuild kit on board, I think I'll go ahead...

Re: Got the air bleed blues

It can start with an injector cracked. It just runs rough.

Re: Trade up/down feeler

Hi Muttskie, I just looked on Yacht World, and there are quite a few of the larger boats on the market, as others have suggested. Only a couple of the Dana's. Looks like a good opportunity to cash...

Re: Espar heat on 34

John, good luck with your project. I plan to install a D2 in my 34 at some point. I think I follow your install, with the unit mounted to port and exhausting near the engine exhaust. Just to...

Re: Noise from dockline passing thru Hawse Pipe

Re: Noise from dockline passing thru Hawse Pipe

Dude you're not alone. I'm never tied to the dock, but it happens at anchor and mooring in any wind and it does make a lot of noise in the V-berth. It hasn't bothered me enough to take action - yet...
