Re: Seafarer 38 fuel tank replacement

I think that is the way I would do it as well. Go in through the engine bay and cut as needed. The fuel tank goes a long ways forward. Ours is about 55 gallons and not the 70 or so speced. Best of...

PVC Pipe. Just dive in and try it.

You can build this out of large diameter PVC pipe. Basically all you need is a black tank on deck where water can heat up. If you use your main pressure water plumbed into it you can draw hot water...

I would not use joints if you can help it (elbows and diameter adapters), if you do it will mean that you have another point of failure. If it works why change it? I would get the wires mounted as...

We have a Simrad wheel pilot on our 38 that does fine. I do like the quadrant mounted systems better though. My past experience with Raymarine quadrant mounted pilots has been good. If you have a...

I see no one has responded here. I have not dealt with the 31 Yawl, but I have seen chainplates replaced. Just move to outboard thru-bolted chainplates.

I have a 1973-4 Seafarer 38C TM. We have practically rebuilt her, but now she is as pretty as anything else I see, and probably the best equipped old boat in our marina. I think they are fine boats....

Could not be more true

I can verify the truth of this. After spending many many hours with a longboard I passed the hat (and the respirator) to a broke teen in need of work, and it was the best spent $200 I have ever made...

Build it yourself. It does not have to be identical to the original, but if you can look around your area for another Pearson 26 you can look at, and maybe even measure you would be in good shape.

Thank you Cool. Sometimes I think my opinions are unwanted on this forum. People get way too worked up about this stuff when really it doesn't matter that much.

Obviously, this isn't a solution for everyone, but I get frustrated when people ask questions and just get shot down out of hand. From what I can tell, it's a good option for some folks.

Solings and thoughts

It's one thing to sink a Soling in a race, and another to sink it on a daysail.

I race Etchells, and take friends and family out on it all the time with no mishaps.

My thoughts on all of this...

A lot of good that post does to enlighten us all. I am just trying to find as many old contacts as I can. Hopefully another lists option is out there that is compelling. Maybe Yahoo groups.
