Re: Bristol 40 Main gooseneck adjustment

Well here is the deal. The boom clears the bimini when under full sail and also when under 1st reef, however, under a 2nd reef and 3rd reef, the aft cringes are cut at lower angles and the boom lies...

Re: Bristol 40 Main gooseneck adjustment

I don't believe this to be the original main as the condition is pretty good and the boat is 32 years old, (1981). I did have as much tension as I could generate on the halyard, and the mainsheet and...

Re: Fresh water winterization

Therein lies the problem. I could not get it to drain. Disconnected both the inlet and the outlet, left a faucet open for air, even used compressed air. Blowing in the inlet got about a gallon of...

Fresh water winterization

I winterized my fresh water system yesterday and found that on my new boat I can no longer blow the system out with compressed air as I did on my last boat. (I recently posted on this also, under...

Atlantic Marine Hot Water Tank and Fresh Water Winterization

Re: Diesel Fireplace

Thats exactly opposite how I thought it worked. I thought the thermocouple was suppose to shut off the fuel line if it got too hot. Either way, I cant imaging the thermocouple is even replaceable as...

Re: Diesel Fireplace

That push button is a primer and when you press it diesel fuel flows down and enters the combustion chamber freely from gravity. I thought that it would continue to drip every few seconds, but it...

Re: Diesel Fireplace

Your reply sounds accurate. This is a gravity feed fuel line, it enters in the bottom at that elbow. It apparently just spills into the base of the unit. You ignite it with a manual lighter. I...
