Re: Best RPM for Yanmar 3HMF?

Well of course, that is what I'm doing now. I'm not planning to buy a new replacement (~$200). However, if I found a used tach for sale or trade, I'd consider it.

Re: Best RPM for Yanmar 3HMF?

You guys did not read post #4.

It turns out that my Yanmar is not turning 4000 RPM, the tach is reading wrong.

After a bit more investigation I discovered that the tach in my boat is the wrong...

There is. After the survey, the buyer can reopen the negotiations. The buyer and seller can work out problems however they like, seller fixing problem, price reductions, or some combination. The...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

I paid about that for insurance on my 30' sailboat of similar value in the US and no survey was required. I also bought it without a broker. So it's not that different. I now pay more and had to...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

+1

That's how it works, contract first, then survey. As the buyer, you can back out after the survey for any reason. Don't like the color of the sails? You can back out. I've been through...

Re: Best RPM for Yanmar 3HMF?

Just a quick post to close the story.

I asked a few knowledgeable people and they seemed to think my motor sounded about right when at a good cruising speed, regardless of the tachometer reading...

Best RPM for Yanmar 3HMF?

The 27hp Yanmar 3HMF in my 38' 15000lb boat will peg the tachometer at 4000 RPM and just barely reach hull speed (or maybe not quite). Right now I cruise at about 6.5kts @3500 RPM. I'd like to get...

Re: Crew wanted for sailing/racing in Long Island Sound

Thanks for the responses so far, please keep them coming as there is no such thing as too long a crew list.

I just sent out PMs to those who responded above, please check your inboxes.

Re: Replacing keel bolt backing plates on Pearson 34

Do they really need to come out? Could you install new plates over the top of the old?

Re: B&G T7 for Newport 30

VMG is velocity made good to windward (directly into the wind), while VMC is velocity made good to the next mark or waypoint.

So, VMG = VMC only when your next waypoint is directly to windward.

Re: Shackle question

I have a shackle from a vang that looks just like that one and it happened the same way. The pin wasn't wired and worked loose, allowing the horseshoe to bend. Mine wasn't an HR shackle and it...

Re: Spoiler alert: "All is Lost"

Same reasons as no dodger, Hollywood. The container had to hole the boat where it did to ruin his radio and other electronics, else the story gets too complicated.

Re: Carburetor Adjustment

Find the idle mixture screw on the carburetor, turn it in for richer, turn in out for leaner. The screw controls the amount of air, not the fuel.

Re: P30 Rudder repair.

I don't think P30 rudders have any core, at least the one I tried to cut open appeared to be solid. I drilled holes and cut it with a circular saw and never hit anything but fiberglass.

Re: How much deck over the cabin do I remove?

Umm, ouch. That looks bad, really bad. The rot at the keel/hull joint may be terminal if the rot at the deck/cabin trunk line isn't. I've cleaned up really really dirty smelly boats before, but I...

In addition to the ram, you'll need a brain box, a fluxgate compass, and a control head.

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

Why not fix your A4? The A4 is simple enough that anyone can do a complete rebuild if needed (and it likely isn't).

I've had outboards on sailboats and I hate them. They don't perform as well...

Re: Should I clean my sails?

Clean them if you like, but rinsing the salt off of them is more important than cleaning.

Sails don't mind cold, but keep them dry. Mold and mildew are the real enemies.
