Re: Fouled Fuel Tank

An inspection plate could be installed if there is access to the tank top. In my case the tank is installed under the cockpit sole so that wasn't possible. The new tank I had made has a drain at the...

Re: Lexan/polycarbonate vs acrylic

795 is not bathtub sealant but a structural silicone adhesive and probably the best choice for plexiglass ports. Especially in conjunction with the Vhb tape.

Ever notice that there are not any...

What kind of boat do you have? I have never seen ports installed that way.

Re: Electrical System Update

Just because you have more battery capacity doesn't mean that you use more AH. It is not any tougher to put 100 AH into a 900 AH bank than a bank half the size. The larger the battery bank the higher...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Taco makes edging that should be available in any good marine store. As posted the automotive trim works well also.

Re: Refrigeration questions

I don't believe the Engel and Norcold are the same. Engel uses a swing arm compressor that is proprietary. It is also more efficient.

Re: Engine vent air valve?

I would take a short route, not run it all the way to the transom. If you use the transom you need a high loop in the hose so water cannot enter.

Another solution would be the cabin side near the...

Re: Engine vent air valve?

By topside do you mean the hull? I would avoid that as when sailing it could become an intake. On a powerboat yes but not on a sailboat.

I would install it on the cabintop above the head. Best...

Re: Engine vent air valve?

Where is the head installed? I would put the vent in the same area, maybe in the cabin top above the head.

Re: Engine vent air valve?

Gladrags is correct. You need 2 vents, one for intake air and the other an output from the fan. They have to be dedicated to that use. A surveyor wouldn't pass what you plan to do nor would the Coast...

Re: A quick inverter question

Fuse should be near the battery positive post to protect the wire to the inverter. The fuse in the inverter does not offer that protection - it is for the inverter.

Re: Anyone have experience with Force 10 heaters

They are old. Spare parts don't exist. When Eno bought Force 10 about 7 or 8 years ago they trucked all spare parts that were not for stoves to the dump.

What type of heater is it? - they made...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Actually I am correct. Here is a link to Jabsco's instructions for their most popular manual head: http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/20/00/00/0/0000001220.pdf

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

There should NOT be a vented loop between the inlet through hull and pump on a Jabsco type head. The pump isn't strong enough to pull with one, especially after a bit of wear. That is why Jabsco...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

I disagree. The starter solenoid doesn't use much current. That is why there is a solenoid there to start with. If the voltage at the solenoid isn't as high as it should be there is a wiring problem...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

There is really no reason for any "Y" valve in a head system. The simpler solution is from head to tank to a "T", one side of which goes to the deck fitting and the other to the macerator and through...

The wires should no be that different in size. Wire to bilge should not be larger than 10 gauge. Bilge pump and float switch leads are either 14 or 16 gauge.
