Re: Yanmar 3GM 30 Cooling Water Mystery

All these comments are valid. I know last year when I overheated I went thru the engine cooling system looking for problems. I never found any, it was torn, but not broken, impeller that looked ok...

Re: Yanmar 3GM 30 Cooling Water Mystery

I check the water entry elbow to the mixing elbow every year around this time. It just collects debris, not sure why it should be partial to higher rpm other than as the flow increases the water...

Re: Boom Vang and Preventers (renamed)

Jon,
thanks, that is what I was thinking but just wanted to confirm with you. I don't have perforated aluminum toerails, I do have hefty forward SS cleats that I could run the preventer line thru...

re: Boom Vang and Preventers (renamed)

Jon,
Since this thread has already been 'sidetracked' to preventers let me ask; the line from the bow to the end of the boom runs outside the lifelines but the line aft, from the bow, runs inside...

Re: bilge pumps in series, ok?

York,
You probably are right. I have a mast boot so the leak is pretty much limited to the track. If someone made a rubber 'thingy' that plugged the sail track that would be convenient. I don't...

Re: bilge pumps in series, ok?

Ok, Thanks.

I was wondering about check valves, but was not sure how many were needed, but it makes sense that the Jabsco has an output check valve already. It looks like the Rule needs a...

bilge pumps in series, ok?

The bilge on our boat collects water from rain down the sailtrack, nothing serious but it does fill up one isolated bilge compartment when we get a good soaking. I have a Jabsco belt driven...

Re: Lifting Keel Yachts

BobPerry,
I know of one in the PNW and of 4 here on the east coast, I am not sure where the other 2 are. One of the 7 Clearwater 35's has circumnavigated, from my understanding, which says almost...

Re: Lifting Keel Yachts

All,
I also own a lifting keel "Clearwater," mine is hull #5 (they only made 7). Our fuel vent is on the topsides, but much higher up, almost 2' above the water line. I have never had any water in...

Re: advice for first solo, overnight, offshore

BristolBob,
When are you going? Is your purpose to do it singlehanded? If not there may be people here in Oriental that would go along for the fun of it.

Re: Autopilot Install

Probably too late to help, but I mounted mine at the helm in a pod. I tapped into the power for my radio, but still had to run a line to the main unit which is in the back of one of the aft berths....

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

BeeJ;
Thanks, we really like her. We kept the boat in the Sassafrass one summer and it was great to be able to travel around the Bay. We lived in NJ at the time and it was a 2 hr drive down to the...

epoxy an underwater crack

First a disclaimer;
the crack is not on my boat, but in our hot tub! I just figure that one of the many available boat epoxies would be best to seal this crack (which is under about 10 inches of...
