That is interesting that the power is mostly drawn thru the yellow "memory" wire. As Patrick stated above, "some stereaos (sic) won"t power up if the yellow "memory power" wire is not alive". Clearly...

FWIW - Despite #4 above, I've always had excellent results with the Zinnser Stain-blocking primer. It's lacquer-based so it dries quickly. While it may be different than a bonding primer, I've never...

We're surveying a boat for possible live-aboard use that has two 16k btu Cruisair reverse cycle units. They're original equipment, and thus 24 years old. What should I look for?

Thanks. I've got a 3YM30 in my current boat, and had a 3GM before that. The turbo aspect of a diesel is something I'm totally unfamiliar with. Does that add any wrinkles?

Also, I think it's a...

If the halyard tension is too light, it can wrap around the forestay when furling, which will definitley make it harder to do. Also, it can fray the halyard, or worse, if you have a wire hlayard, it...

If the 303 is like my 323, the hull-to-deck joint is based on an inward flange. The deck is cored, but not all the way to the edge where its thickness tapers, so some of the holes are thru deck that...
