Re: Bimini mounted solar panels with twin backstays?

How thick are your backstays, anyway? I'd expect the shadow of a wire to be a small part of any cell it crosses, and an even smaller part of the entire panel. You don't want to shade a whole cell...

Re: How to start engine on the hard?

Yes, it does need to run up to temperature, which I manage during the warmup and drive to the travelift bay. Unless I'm the first haul-out of the day, it's warmup, change oil, warmup/drive,...

Re: 125/250v shorepower question

125/250V service on marine outlets is Single Phase, not Three Phase. 250 is actually 125-0-125, basically the same as (most) North American residential power. You get 125V from either Line to...

Re: How to start engine on the hard?

I've run my previous 2GM20 by connecting a garden hose to a "T" fitting, with the side of the T going to my water pump and the other end open. With the T above the engine (actually over the side of...

Re: Routing and Sealing Cables

I ran a bunch of cables up the leg of the cockpit table by installing a nylon thru-hull up from the inside of the cabin. The thru-hull sleeve extends up above the sole to prevent water from running...

Re: Removing KM2P from 2GM20F

I pulled mine on a C&C33 and replaced it after a rebuild. Not difficult. Clean the shaft before backing it off through the stuffing box (we were in the water at the time), a bit over an inch will do...

Re: 30 Year Old Propane Stove

Interesting, though right now I have two 400-pound un-buried propane tanks which are doing a fine job of feeding the stove and two gas furnaces (the discerning reader will have concluded that I am...

Re: Xantrex AC hook up??

Re: 30 Year Old Propane Stove

Make sure it's actually a propane, and not butane, stove. Many European boats use butane, in fact my Jeanneau factory manuals refer to the butane system which was decommissioned/replaced with propane...

Re: Snubber thoughts

Re: Replace springs on outboard lifting bracket??

Re: Installing a SSB with a Questas gimballed radar mount

Even with an insulator above the radar, the GtO feed line running up to the insulator is part of the antenna anyway. Have you considered a wire antenna on a separate halyard? I put my tuner up on...

Re: RS-232 to Bluetooth Converters

I've used a Parani10 from Sena. Takes an NMEA feed from a Raymarine Seatalk-to-NMEA converter for a laptop, and more recently, an Android tablet. It works fine though I don't use it much, mostly just...

Re: 12v voltage regulator

I bought a Carnetix DC-DC converter meant for car computers; gives a nice 12v (and 5v) well regulated. Not using it just now; my hair TV seems happy on ship's "12v".

Re: Proposed wiring diagram for a trailer sailer

One suggestion for the assignment of breakers on your panel: one boat we chartered on had all the "at sea" loads in a row on one side of the panel, and the "anchored/docked" loads on another. Made it...

Re: Airmar / Raymarine DST800 Transducer Issue

Re: Transmission Yanmar KM35P problem

Re: Transmission Yanmar KM35P problem

Re: Need help removing these icebox lids

Is that round piece a cap/plug covering a screw? Have you tried to pry it out?
