Re: Ultimate Sole, alternative

I would choose a basketball court finish over Epifanes poly. Ultimate Sole is really Gym Seal that was rebranded. Unfortunately, both were axed by the EPA due to excessive and toxic VOIC's. I would...

Re: Outboard repair- Balt/ Annap/ Middle River Areas

2 stroke or 4? Try running sea foam carb cleaner through. It sounds like the carb needs to be cleaned. 2 stroke engines are really easy to remove the carb, take apart and soak in seafoam cleaner. The...

Re: One dead,two missing on Middle River

Crazy! Apparently we avoided most of the severe weather by heading south to Onancock and then Smith Creek. We got some wind and lightning/rain. One cell had 45 knot winds though.

Re: Danforth mount?

If it's going in a lazarette, don't people simply lay it and the rode down on the bottom with other items placed around or on top?

Re: furler

When single handing your success at sail handling is going to rely more on early weather prediction and early sail handling than anything else. Reduce sail before it is a necessity. Rolling up a...

Re: older prpopane tank adapters

Yes. Your tank must also be decertified that it can hold the pressure. Check with local propane supplier for companies in your area.

Re: Adhesive for hatch gasket?

Permatex should work. Remove old adhesive with an adhesive remover you can get at Home Depot.

Re: Removing jib track

I believe they would have nuts on the end. They'd why they just spin.

Your options are:

Re: Bilge pump and float switch

Here's a way to test:

Disconnect pump from switch. Get a bunch of wire same size as in there. Temporarily run it from switch to pump and turn on switch and activate pump. If that wire gets hot,...

Re: Bilge pump and float switch

With a wire heating up as you describe, I'd say the problem is in the wire or connections. There shouldn't be that much resistance in properly sized wire. That's what I would think needs to be...

Re: Need electrical advise

To figure it out: .06 x 24 (hrs)= amp hrs per day. Divide total # of amps your batteries have by that number to get # of hrs until your battery bank is drained. If you have 1 group 24 (auto sized...

Re: Is this second track necessary?

Cristian makes a good point. Otherwise you will always be fighting leaks there. If already leaking, remove and fill holes with epoxy.

It's best to get it at a marine store as it will be tinned for the damp environment. If not available, get one at an auto parts store or even Walmart in the auto department. You will need to have...

Re: Need electrical advise

Yes, you always need a fuse in the event of a short in the wire. You would otherwise risk a fire which would ruin your day!

Yes. That's correct. You must calculate to and back so 14 gu. is correct. You can put a fuse in an in-line holder or add a breaker that acts as a switch. Otherwise it's running all the time (unless...

Re: Need electrical advise
