Re: Money no object

I've pined for a Pogo 12.50 for a while. I'm not sure how comfortable it would be on extended cruise, but I'm willing to take that chance... given unlimited funds.

Re: What do you pay for Slip Fees??

I'm incredibly lucky to have what I have. Lake Huron, $600/season. I have a 30' Morgan OI. Includes electric, water, community bathrooms.

Re: A little disappointed with Newfound Metals

But, look before you leap. I'm stuck with 2 grand worth of port lights I can't use.

Re: A little disappointed with Newfound Metals

Overall the port light is solid. MaineSail recommends them and has instructions on installing them. I'd check his article out. They were well built, heavy, very rugged, should last ages. They just...

A little disappointed with Newfound Metals

I'm a little disappointed with Newfound Metals (New Found Metals - Marine Hardware and Stainless Portlights (http://www.newfoundmetals.com/)). We'd ordered stainless port lights for our Morgan OI 30....

Re: New NFM Portlights on Morgan OI 30 - Issues

I ordered the router template, unfortunately, it's too big. On the outside I'm bound on the bottom by my rub rail. On the inside I'm bound by the cabin top. It's a real pita, and requires a lot of...

Re: Leaking transducer through hulls

I did find replacements. SR Mariner doesn't make instruments anymore, but kudos to them for continuing to provide replacement parts. I was able to get new O-rings and new cups for the anemometer.

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

I finally have all the pieces. I'll be putting it all together this weekend. I got a new prop shaft from Henry Smith here in Algonac, Michigan. It's fantastic quality. I'll take the recommendation...

Re: New NFM Portlights on Morgan OI 30 - Issues

Fortunately, I had some good luck. After letting the boat sit out in this interminable heat for a few weeks with the port lights out, the wood dried out. It seems pretty solid now. I'm going to make...

New NFM Portlights on Morgan OI 30 - Issues

So, I received 7 new, shiny stainless port lights last week. I headed up yesterday to begin the work of installing them. That's when I discovered that Charlie Morgan had specifically designed the 30...

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

I didn't show you the picture around the cutlass bearing, because it wasn't as severe. The prop shaft needs to be replaced. But I do like your idea in the event it was just stuffing box wear.

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

No worries Johnny, I'm curious myself, now that you ask. I think we'll wait for MaineSail to chime in. My gut says that you'd need to compress the packing more to get a good seal. I suspect it's more...

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

Apparently the manufacturer recommends you replace the rubber baffle every 7-9 years on the PSS, so it doesn't seem any easier for maintenance. I think I'll stick with the cheap packing and clean out...

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

I'm going to take them the old cutlass, the old stuffing box, the original prop, the coupler, and the prop. I want them to make sure everything fits together well. I heard others say they may even...

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

I also posted our progress in another thread. We're in the Great Lakes and are doing this before we put the boat in the water for the season. The rudder has enough room when in it's cradle to drop...

Re: Worn Prop Shaft

CalebD, I found one for 150, stainless, and well within specs for our 18HP Yanmar. I think I will go ahead and take a look at a new shaft log hose. I was planning on keeping old fashioned packing...

Worn Prop Shaft

I figured I'd post a photo of my prop shaft as a warning to others. It looks like checking the packing box wasn't a priority for the first 30-ish years of this boats life, or maybe my expectations...

Re: Spring Maintenance

I got deeper into this this weekend. The stern tube is a ceramic-like material. I ended up putting a socket wrench socket of roughly the same size as the cutlass, attaching and extension and hitting...

Re: Spring Maintenance

The cutlass is bizarre. I...

The prop and shaft were a different matter altogether. I...

Re: Leaking transducer through hulls

I finally got the transducers out this past weekend. The fiberglass is in perfect shape. I don't see any problems. I'm starting to suspect the o-rings on the top of the through hulls may be bad. I'm...

Re: Leaking transducer through hulls

It's been out of the water all winter. Any chance it has dried out and I can just rebed everything? Or, if it's that bad, is there considerably more glass work that will need to be done?

Re: Where to get Butyl tape?

RV supplier, possibly? Others have recommended auto parts or auto glass installers. I think they use the black stuff though.
