Re: Feedback on Rydlyme

I used Rydlyme on my 1987 3gm30f in the heat exchanger following the Maine sail suggestions. It worked extremely well.

Re: Yanmar heat exchanger issues on PS boats

I have owned my 1987 3gm30f for 14 years. Last year I replaced the exhaust elbow which was severely corroded. I also ran Rydlyme (as outlined by Mainesail) for a long long time through the heat...

Re: Galvanic Isolator

Marc,

Thanks, I ended up putting the Galvanic Isolator in the wet locker aft of the head mounted just below the new charger. With Thumper's help from Pacific Seacraft I found access to the shore...

Re: What Size Dock Lines do I Need ?

Newhaul,

I would expect 5/8th all around should be OK for that size boat. I have a heavy 31 and personally I also have two spring lines on each side (total of 10) but I am paranoid. OK a couple...

Re: Galvanic Isolator

Maine,

The connection from AC to DC has me worried.

I have owned the boat for a long time but did not have much time to learn about the electrical system. I retired recently and now have time...

Re: Galvanic Isolator

Keith,

There is no room in the panel on the '31 but right next to it there is a wet locker that I only use for storage. I guess I could cut a hole to frame it and then just take the existing...

Galvanic Isolator

I am going to install a galvanic isolator on my 31 Pacific Seacraft. I have read (Maine Sail) that the best place to connect to the AC ground is very close to the shore power inlet. That could make...

Re: Where can I get this Genoa Car pin?

Pat,

I have two of these as well. One has a broken pin. Did you find a manufacturer? I have a suspicion they are Lewmar.

Re: 31 genoa car

Tempting, but all the extra lines and blocks sound a little too much. It is usually just two or three adjustments per day. My sailing is not that advanced and, as I said, I don't race.

Re: PS 34 shift cable length

I could not find a length standard for the shift cable on my 31 so I tied a string to the old one, pulled it out and measured the old one.
