Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

The shunt goes in the negative wire right after the house bank negative post. You are showing the shunt in the positive.

There should be only 2 positive wires on the ACR - start battery positive...

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Faster is correct. Any loads connected between the shunt and the battery do not get counted.

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

As I said earlier my first choice would be to replace it with new chain in its entirety. Your existing chain can be used for a secondary or stern anchor.

1325 is the working load - breaking is 4X that (5300 lbs) which you would have seen if you had read all the specifications. This is the same working load as your grade 30 BBB chain.

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

Can you post a link. It doesn't appear to be on Maine's Pbase site.

As I said before the best solution is a new chain.

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

Decades ago I worked in a brewery and we too used stainless for just about everything the product touched. It was always welded to stainless with the proper stainless rod and the only other metal it...

You could use the Crosby missing link.

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

I see evidence of corrosion next to stainless often on moorings and anchor rodes of those who anchor for weeks at a time. It is common knowledge among offshore cruisers that I know. If you do not...

Re: BBB or type 54 - what's the difference?

A stainless link will cause corrosion on adjacent links - quickly. The welding shop cannot have much experience with salt water.

Re: Electric repower ideas

Re: CPES for deck core stabilization

I disagree. For most of us - me included - we are dealing with boats decades old that have been neglected at least part of the time and have never had the deck gear re-bedded. Most did not have the...

Re: CPES for deck core stabilization

It is not just a question of weight. For example a deck that has 1/2" of balsa core and 2 skins of fiberglass will be very stiff. If you remove the core and even add to the total thickness of...

Re: CPES for deck core stabilization

The balsa (when dry) is strong in compression. It is actually stronger in compression than any other core material weight for weight.

Re: Installing electric faucet/plumbing

33 gallons in the bow of a 22' boat will not help sailing much.

That is enough water to cross the Altantic.

1/4" NPT is standard on propane solenoids.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

You could lower the deck fill to make it closer to flush with the deck.

Re: 125/250v shorepower question

E-11 relates to the boat, not the land based supply.

50 amp 125 volt is wired the same on the boat as 30 amp 125 volt - the exception being the size of the double pole breaker. Each has 3 wires -...

Re: 125/250v shorepower question

A 50 amp 125/250 shorepower connection will give you 50 amps@250 volts using both hot legs or 50 amps @125 volts using only one leg.

Re: Charging Woes

Battery voltage when charging should not exceed about 14.4 volts with any controller. The only way the battery voltage could equal panel voltage is without a controller.
