Re: Battery Assistance

Yes, it stayed on the charger overnight.
It was off the charger for about 2-3 hrs on Sunday before taking the voltage reading.

In any case, I'll be going back this coming Sunday with a more...

Re: Battery Assistance

Re: Battery Assistance

As I mentioned earlier, the previous owner had a house bank consisting of six 6v batteries. We don't require that much power, nor am I interested in carrying it around so my plan was to reduce it to...

Re: Battery Assistance

Essentially, what I now have is conflicting instructions. Aside from this thread, I've consulted with a local chandlery, a repair company that operates out of the marina, and a few boating friends...

Re: Battery Assistance

I've looked in each battery and can verify there is fluid in them, but I have no way of knowing how full they would be if charged, or how full they should be.

I have no idea whatsoever how to...

Re: Battery Assistance

There's a 12v starter battery for the motor, 6 6v house batteries and another 12v for the windlass. All are wet batteries. The three banks are fed by a device to divide the charge evenly. This was...

Battery Assistance

I'm a new boat owner, and I took the advice of a friend who told me to charge up my batteries and leave them on the boat over the winter and they'd be fine. The part that I missed was to disconnect...

Re: Destep or not Destep?

Hi Capecodda,

It's funny that you should say that, because about 10 mins before your message, I received an e-mail from a friend who said I should leave the mast up and just throw a tarp over the...

Re: Destep or not Destep?

The normal practice at the club is to leave the mast in.
It would cost about $300-400 per year to destep and store the mast on top of the normal haulout and storage fees.
I'm still waiting on an...

Destep or not Destep?

I'm the new owner of a 1989 CS36 Merlin.
The boat came with a custom canvas cover and cover frame designed to work with a destepped mast. The old owner was a member at a club that used a crane to...

Re: Boat Ventilation

Take a look at travlineasy's post about using computer fans. Looking up at those two small cowl vent holes in the salon roof, I could see them being a perfect fit for a pair of small PC fans.

Re: Boat Ventilation

Thanks everyone for all your suggestions. I appreciate all the input. I especially liked the idea of using PC fans, and may try that once I have a bit more experience with the electrical systems.

Re: Boat Ventilation

Due to the way the boat is configured, I can have the door to the forward cabin open or the door to the head open but not both at the same time. Given that I have a limited capacity for logic, my...

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

Thanks for the input, guys. I suspected there wasn't much I could do about the bimini/dodger configuration and it appears that I'm unfortunately right. The boat does have a full enclosure I can use...

Re: Boat Ventilation

Thanks DR.

If I may ask, WHERE did you install the vent? Did you mount it on a hatch or on the coach roof itself?

I'm concerned that once I cut a hole in the roof, that's it.... but if I don't...

I'm a new owner of a 1989 CS36 Merlin.
I've seen a few different designs for custom bimini/dodger combinations on the Merlin. The design on our boat has a very narrow bimini and I was wondering if...

H Vasco,

She looks beautiful. May I ask why you replaced the Volvo engine? I've seen a 1990 model with the engine replaced as well. I haven't heard anything bad about the Volvo.

Do you have...

Re: CS36 Merlin Model Comparison

As soon as I have some, I'll share them.

In exchange, I'd be curious to know if you employed a de-naming/re-naming ceremony for your boat. It appeared to me in your photos as if the name of the...
