Re: 30 Year Old Propane Stove

Interesting, though right now I have two 400-pound un-buried propane tanks which are doing a fine job of feeding the stove and two gas furnaces (the discerning reader will have concluded that I am...

Re: Xantrex AC hook up??

Re the "three-pole breaker" - my prev C&C had what looked like a 3-pole, but was actually three sections: a double-pole 30A breaker joined with a 50(ish) VOLT section wired between neutral and...

Re: 30 Year Old Propane Stove

Make sure it's actually a propane, and not butane, stove. Many European boats use butane, in fact my Jeanneau factory manuals refer to the butane system which was decommissioned/replaced with propane...

Re: Fuel tank repair

Re: Snubber thoughts

My snubber is a fairly large length of old mooring line (also served as splicing practice), not especially stretchy but it's main purpose is to take the load off the windlass, and secondly to avoid...

Re: Foot switches for an Anchor Windlass

Re: Replace springs on outboard lifting bracket??

When I upgraded to a 15HP Honda I added a small 4:1 block arrangement up to the stern rail. Made lifting the 104 lb (!) motor easy, even though it involved pulling the rope the entire length of the...

Re: Installing a SSB with a Questas gimballed radar mount

Even with an insulator above the radar, the GtO feed line running up to the insulator is part of the antenna anyway. Have you considered a wire antenna on a separate halyard? I put my tuner up on...

Re: RS-232 to Bluetooth Converters

I've used a Parani10 from Sena. Takes an NMEA feed from a Raymarine Seatalk-to-NMEA converter for a laptop, and more recently, an Android tablet. It works fine though I don't use it much, mostly just...

Re: 12v voltage regulator

I bought a Carnetix DC-DC converter meant for car computers; gives a nice 12v (and 5v) well regulated. Not using it just now; my hair TV seems happy on ship's "12v".

Re: Electrical Upgrades

I'll admit to having installed LED replacement bulbs in my nav fixtures, though not for the lower drain but for longer life - even though I rarely sailed at night, the original bulbs with their long...

Re: Proposed wiring diagram for a trailer sailer

One suggestion for the assignment of breakers on your panel: one boat we chartered on had all the "at sea" loads in a row on one side of the panel, and the "anchored/docked" loads on another. Made it...

Re: Airmar / Raymarine DST800 Transducer Issue

Re: Key switch

The purpose of the ball bearing is to keep the key from falling out or being removed in the ON position. When mine fell apart I used the compass light switch for a while until I got a replacement...

Re: Transmission Yanmar KM35P problem

I had that negative experience - "lapping" initially "fixed" the problem, but only for about one season... Then it came back. Even worse, the marine lapped it a second time, which lasted even less. ...

Re: Transmission Yanmar KM35P problem

If that is a cone clutch tranny, it sounds like the cone is worn. My 2GM20 had that problem (don't recall which transmission it had; your number sounds familiar, though yours is likely bigger but may...

Re: Need help removing these icebox lids

Is that round piece a cap/plug covering a screw? Have you tried to pry it out?

Re: Bird nests in the boom

We use a crumpled wad of aluminum foil in the end of the boom. There's a plastic cap, but still an opening around it. Birds don't peck out the foil.

Re: Need an IPN ProRemote for 20 minutes

Where? If you're in Montreal (or at least north of the 49th), we can talk.

Re: ST60 wind display

You can swap the housing. I replaced an ST60 Winfd with an ST60+ wind and installed the new + in the old 69 housing. Looks like the other five, only the + on the dial shows the difference. And...

Re: Entry level AIS?

The Standard GX2150 VHF with AIS does output both DSC and AIS in NMEA0183. Icom also has a VHF/AIS combo which outputs AIS.

Re: Yanmar super vibration

Glad to have helped.

The 2GM20 had a single double-ended cone (I still have my old one), although I'd call it more than a "washer" - it weighs about a pound, the inside hole is a spiral thread...
