The brown stain occurs because the gelcoat has become more porous as it ages. You want to be careful about making it more porous and make sure you seal it well.

Most likely clogged filters. Change and then re-bleed. Check the filters; how dirty are they? How long since the last change? If recent, your tank is dirty and you should consider fuel polishing to...

Re: Dropped my water fill cap.

The diver will be a waste of money in my opinion. You can search eBay for it and probably frustrate yourself. Or buy a new fill. What's the least frustrating?

Re: Front Hatch Replacment

I was trying to see a picture of the hatch which would help me answer but the generic answer is that your forward hatch is important for the seaworthiness of your vessel. I would NOT replace that...

Re: What constitutes a load on a diesel engine?

I think you answered your own question: if your engine heats up to 160 at 1800rpm, then 1800 is your engine operating under load that is enough to "get it's juices flowing." I would operate it at...

I don't know if it is a drop in replacement but I wou imagine so. Neither one is turbocharged so the exhaust manifold and hoses should be the same. I Would stick with the Yanmar as it is a very good...

Re: Free boat. What is it?

Re: Electric Anchor Windlass on a Wooden Bowsprit

You wouldn't want to put the windlass on the sprit. The strain would be too much. Most windlasses are installed just aft of the chain locker. I'm sure you could find a suitable one, either vertical...

Just a note that a unit that was made in 1984 will use a different refrigerant than one made today. They aren't compatible so you can't put a new compressor and old evaporator together. I Believe you...

Re: Maiden Voyage Trip Report - A 23-hour tour!

Re: Section of gelcoat worn through on cabintop

Never used that product but gelcoat is the way to go as paint constantly requires repainting.

Sorry, you are about to get slammed. First question: bowsprit

I'm thinking the fitting might be 1 piece that goes through a slot in the wood and the bob stay connects to that. The screws don't need to be bolts in that case as the bob stay exerts equal downward...

Since it appears that the rot is outward from the forestay it is not a dire circumstance. The pressures in a sprit are inward, compression. You need to be certain that the rot does NOT continue...
