Re: Rudder bent

Well that all sounds simple enough! :)

Just need to find a spare 25 foot mast and see if Harbor Freight has a sale on hydraulic presses...

Thanks for the detailed description. Gives me lots...

Rudder bent

Sucky way to end the season! My I-30 sits in a slip that has a notoriously low tide. I can't enter or leave 1-2 hours on either side of low tide. A couple of weeks ago I was preparing to leave...

Re: Winches slipping

Very true. The idiot in my mirror has been bawled out countless times but keeps coming back!

Re: Winches slipping

Contrary to the accepted wisdom, you can "fix stupid"--at least in my case. GMFL's comments kept nagging at me so with hope in my heart I went down to the boat yesterday and once again took apart...

Re: Winches slipping

I'd agree with you but I've completely cleaned every nook and cranny. And why would it happen to both winches? I'm not a mechanical incompetent having working with my hands for many years, so I'm...

Re: Winches slipping

I did replace the springs with new ones. Pawls can only be inserted one way ( I tried the other way--no go). Pawls have sharp edges. The irony is that everything was fine before I cleaned them!!!

Re: Winches slipping

I'm frustrated to no end. I've cleaned and re-greased two other winches with no problems but I can't figure out what the hell is wrong with these. I've re-stripped one, completely cleaned everything...

Re: Winches slipping

When I say "moved upward", I'm talking about 2 millimeters. It's a Lewmar 42 and I've attached a drawing of it's parts. The drum gear does not come in contact with any pawls--they're inside the...

Re: Winches slipping

Seems like the consensus is I got grease on the pawls. I used Lewmar winch grease for the gears and Lewmar oil for the pawls and thought I was using them sparingly. Apparently another disassembly...

Winches slipping

Apparently no good deed goes unpunished. I elected to clean and re-grease the winches since I had no idea when the PO had done so. At the first sail after the cleaning, both winches began to slip...

Re: I-30 water tank issue

Bert:
I checked around for the Rainfresh unit but it's a Canadian product and I couldn't find a US distributor. At least I know more or less what to look for.
Thanks

Re: I-30 water tank issue

Bert:
Thanks for saving me a lot of Googling to find a filter. Your recommendations have always been spot on. As for locating the filter under sink, all I can say is "Great minds..." ;-)

Re: I-30 water tank issue

I just got my ShurFlo filter in the mail. For ten bucks and 15 minutes of work, I figured it'll be like chicken soup--can't hurt. I'm toying with the idea of drinking filter as well but plan on...

Re: I-30 water tank issue

Well, I'm not one to ignore the voice of experience. If I can find the old one I'll clean it. Otherwise I'll check to see what Shurflo has to offer. Thanks

Butyl tape for port light sealing

I'll be replacing one of my port lights and would like some advice on the best way to seal it. The instructions just say to use a sealant but doesn't specify anything in particular. I've read a...

Re: I-30 water tank issue

You may be right. If so, then it seems to me to be installed in the wrong place. When I went to the ShurFlo site, they showed an installation with a check valve but it was located at the pump...

I-30 water tank issue

I just replaced the water pump. The boat was on the hard during the winter and apparently I didn't drain all of the water out of the tank but I don't know if that's part of my problem. Turns out...

I-30 draining question

While I'm still pursuing a cockpit (or similar) leak problem, I'm curious about the drainage design behind the engine. (I've only owned this I-30 for one season). What's happening to me is that any...

I30 stuffing box

I'm going to be changing the packing in my stuffing box on the I30. It's my first time venturing there (I've changed packing on my I-28) so I'd appreciate any tips or "gotchas" that the more...

Re: Bottom paint and sanding

I did what I should have done first, namely, "read the instructions"! The West Marine site provides information about CPP. It's definitely a one-season paint. To add insult to injury, they...
