Re: I-30 water tank issue

Bert:
Thanks for saving me a lot of Googling to find a filter. Your recommendations have always been spot on. As for locating the filter under sink, all I can say is "Great minds..." ;-)

Re: I-30 water tank issue

I just got my ShurFlo filter in the mail. For ten bucks and 15 minutes of work, I figured it'll be like chicken soup--can't hurt. I'm toying with the idea of drinking filter as well but plan on...

Re: I-30 water tank issue

Well, I'm not one to ignore the voice of experience. If I can find the old one I'll clean it. Otherwise I'll check to see what Shurflo has to offer. Thanks

Butyl tape for port light sealing

I'll be replacing one of my port lights and would like some advice on the best way to seal it. The instructions just say to use a sealant but doesn't specify anything in particular. I've read a...

Re: I-30 water tank issue

You may be right. If so, then it seems to me to be installed in the wrong place. When I went to the ShurFlo site, they showed an installation with a check valve but it was located at the pump...

I-30 water tank issue

I just replaced the water pump. The boat was on the hard during the winter and apparently I didn't drain all of the water out of the tank but I don't know if that's part of my problem. Turns out...

I-30 draining question

While I'm still pursuing a cockpit (or similar) leak problem, I'm curious about the drainage design behind the engine. (I've only owned this I-30 for one season). What's happening to me is that any...

I30 stuffing box

I'm going to be changing the packing in my stuffing box on the I30. It's my first time venturing there (I've changed packing on my I-28) so I'd appreciate any tips or "gotchas" that the more...

Re: Bottom paint and sanding

I did what I should have done first, namely, "read the instructions"! The West Marine site provides information about CPP. It's definitely a one-season paint. To add insult to injury, they...

Bottom paint and sanding

I sail in Raritan Bay (off the NJ coast). For years I've been faithfully sanding the bottom and applying a fresh coat of West Marine CPP paint. However, I've read blogs where people are getting...

Yanmar throttle issue

Still getting familiar with my I-30 having come from an I-28 with an Atomic 4. During my first season with it (last year), I noticed that both the throttle and gear controls were very stiff. ...

Installing a conduit in the mast--Worth it?

I have my mast down (Islander 30 Bahama) and have a number of maintenance and upgrade projects on the list before she goes in the water. I came across an excerpt from Don Casey's book that described...

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

Very clever! I assume that would be done a section at a time, waiting for some time for the water to dry before moving on to the next section.

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

I took a quick look under the cockpit through the stern locker to check out the scupper situation. There weren't any obvious cracks in any of the hoses but it wasn't raining so I can't attest to no...

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

Interesting. I did have some leakage in the cabinet under the ice box but couldn't for the life of me figure out where it was coming. Since it wasn't significant, it kept slipping down the "To do"...

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

Good tip. It will be a major PITA (pain in...) crawling around under the tarp...and it's still pretty cold! Has to been done, though.

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

The scuppers are fine and I do plan on rechecking all of the hardware. Can you give me any examples of other drain lines? I'm not aware of any other than the scuppers.

Re: Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

Thanks, Jeff. You've given me hope! And I'll use a leaf blower as you suggest. I'm planning on cutting out a piece of plywood to temporarily replace one of the slats comprising the companionway...

Leak detection help-- I30 Bahama

Coolant level

I'm getting familiar with my Yanmar 2GMF. How do I measure the coolant level? Is it just by sight or is there some sort of dipstick?

Re: Did the Islander 28 come with a wheel or tiller?

The two I've owned both had tillers. However, the 1978 Islander brochure that covers the 28, 32, and 36 only makes reference to a wheel. Another brochure that was just for the I-28 had the wheel...
