B32 icebox insulation upgrade

I'm interested in improving the insulation of the icebox on my 1975 B32. I'm intrepid, but before I start tearing things apart I thought I'd ask if anyone has tackled this already and had some pearls...

Re: anti seize thread locker

I agree with Paul. Check the bolts when you service the winch. They should be fine.

My bilge stops just at or a bit forward of the galley. I have the standard keel. There is a platform in that area of the bilge for a shower pump which had been removed by the PO. I just don't know...

Re: Bristol 32 head floor

Eric, the drain is no more than a hole in the floor about an inch in diameter with a molded tailpiece for the hose to go on to. it is a smaller version of the exhaust fitting in the stern. It sounds...

Re: What did you learn to sail on?

My first sailboat was a Newport 16 fixed keel that I bought when I lived in Pullman Washington. I tried to sail it on the Snake River. I could do it now, but I couldn't then. After moving to western...

Re: Why the Bristol 32 backs so poorly

MarkSF,

I guess we all have times when we control our boats without actually steering. The back and fill maneuver comes to mind. Some call that seamanship.

I have a Bristol 32 and can relate to...

Re: Why the Bristol 32 backs so poorly

I had a Catalina 27 before my Bristol32. The backing characteristics are very different. I have certainly learned with the Bristol that the bow will blow down very easily due to the underwater planes...

Re: Viewing a Bristol 32 tonight... Questions

This may be too little to late, but I purchases a 1975 32 recently. This is my third season. The fact that it is out of the water is good in my opinion as a surveyor would haul it anyway. You can do...

Re: Bristol 30 up to 34

I bought a 1975 Bristol 32 two seasons ago. I thought I had a delamination in the vicinity of the through hulls in the head area. I didn't. The decks seem to be plywood cored. I don't have any delam...

Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

I used tape with good results on my Catalina. By Bristol's cove is concave. I suppose masking is the answer.

Re: Topsides going from 'White' to flag blue

Barquito,

I did a black paint job with roll and tip using Brightside. USE THE BRUSHING LIQUID! I didn't on the first coat and it didn't flatten out. I hesitated to use it as the day was in the...

Re: Bristol 32 foward hatch support

Ok, the picture shows the hinge with the hatch open and on the middle notch of the arm. You will notice that the hinge halves are not parallel. When the hatch is closed, they are parallel.

Re: Bristol 32 rudder pivots

Well here is the deal with the lower rudder pivot on a Bristol 32.

At least on a 1975 vintage, hull 165, there is NO bronze shoe. There is a bushing set in the fiberglass that looks like it is a...

Re: B32 rudder shaft repair

If it is common then perhaps someone knows the answer to one more part of the mystery for me. Why is the bottom end of the pin threaded? The yard that did the repair said it was 1/4 20 threads. Is it...

Re: B32 rudder shaft repair

I want to add one thing that I wasn't clear on until last night. The bolt that is oriented athwart ship goes through the rudder pin. I though it was under the pin and the pin simply rested on it. As...
