Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

So...if it fails, it fails in the open position (meaning the circuit is open)? I certainly hope so!:eek:

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

Soldering certainly is a skill. However this brings up another controversial point. Some believe that a soldered wire connection is too rigid for the movement/vibration prone environment on a boat. ...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

Wire nuts?:eek: And I think MY PO was a hack!:laugher
Nice job!

Funny thing: I use to dread re-wiring the boat. However, now that I've learned more (I.e, terminal strips, etc.) and found a...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

I still can't believe Rule uses them on auto bilge switches.
I mean, if your running lights (for example) get disconnected at the switch panel it's one thing. Most likely, you are underway (if not,...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

The new switch panel is great, though you need to backlight kit as the print is so small you can hardly see it in the daytime! Ordered the LED kit for the switch panel (I thought), consisting of 8...

Re: Old winch handle replacement

As I feared (post 28), the lock on one of the handles betrayed me. I watched in horror as the handle fell out of the winch, hit the deck, and did a back flip into the bay! Unless the lock mechanism...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

Re: clam cleat screws seized?

I've got another (though related) problem.
Attempted to remove the last machine screw on my sail track so I could remove the car. The screw head snapped off (of course). I was hoping enough of the...

Re: Defend Defender!

Probably one of the worst analogies I've ever seen. Here is one that should be more useful for you.

Re: Defend Defender!

You really are fortunate! Out here we have WM:( and a few chandlaries that are few and far between, and therefore - pricey.

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

No, the males Blue Sea provide have the hole you describe. Just need to find the females to match.

Re: What's your biggest bonehead move sailing?

While the odds of this happening are next to nil, my key gets bent if I leave it in the ignition while sailing. I have a hook inside the companionway where I hang it when not motoring. I also have a...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

Thank you. I learn so much on this forum!
I've always noticed the holes on the spade and wondered what they are for. Wonder if the Blue Seas spade matches the Faston. Where do you buy them? Googled...

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

Replaced the panel with a Blue Seas 1457. It was one of the few panels I found that had 8 switches and would fit in the small space available. Quality isn't great and it has the spade disconnects...

I've been working on my outhaul for a couple of weeks, so I didn't have my main cover as secure as usual. Took the boat out last weekend using the headsail only.

Re: Outhaul repair/replacement

First lesson re: Amsteel 3/16.
Amsteel is larger than the 3/16 wire rope it replaced. Hence, it won't fit through the old hardware. Purchased some 1/8 today. We'll see how that works! Just need to...

Re: Lubing Ball Valves (tip/trick)

The weird thing is that I still feel a fair amount of resistance when turning the handle. I assume there would be little resistance if the stem was sheared, but can't imagine how else it could fail.
