Re: diesel injector return line

Re: Preventing corrosion after cutting railing attachment

I believe it is not soldered but welded and most probably stainless steel. All you have to do is cut the rod from the tubing as you described, clean it with a file or any type of electrical grinding...

Re: Fridge duty cycle

The cold air escaping is not very important. Air doesnot need a lot of energy for getting cold, therefore the duty cycle will not increase a lot, for the loss of cold air.

In my opinion a top...

Re: My Autopilot is posessed by Satan!

IMO this is not metallic interferance. Something active such as a live wire or electric motor is responsible for this. If this was to metal objects the compass would deflect and stay there, metal...

Re: Engine Instruments Fail to Read - Help!

The normal operating temperature of the engine can cause this. Specially the engine room heats up after 15 minutes. It doesnot take that long for the engine or the exhaust that long. Check the cables...

Re: Encapsulated or Bolt On Keel?

The method of attachment is not important in this case, the bolts did not gave up, the hull did and this can well happen with an encapsulated keel also.

Bobperry,

Re: Encapsulated or Bolt On Keel?

Re: Sail Drives?

Check and "replace if needed" the cone clutch every 500 hrs. Replace it every 2000 hrs. This is from Yanmar sail drive maintanence. The cone clutch is on the expensive side. Keep away.

Re: Mast foot block ??

Two inches is not too much. Do not forget that masts which go down to the keel are movable much more than that. You can tune up the mast according to its new position. The mast will need to lean a...

Re: Raw water cooling - walk away?

Every item on a boat has a life. Raw water cooled engines worked as well as fresh water ones. The age of the engine (hours of use) is the limiting factor. Each engine will fail from some place or the...

Re: Should I replace the headstay?

Headstays generally fail due to roller reefing. If the rigging is less than 10 years of age replacing only the headstay will suffice. To be on the safe side a complete re rigging is best.

Re: C-lark 14 traveller repair

Re: C-lark 14 traveller repair

Pictures will help a lot. Since the eye straps are streched out, the bolts do not have backing plates or they are not big or thick enough to hold the eye straps.

Re: Need Help with Neglected Boat
