Re: Custom hard dodger for Immaculate P36

Excellent. That is the weak point on most hard dodgers, and they can be knocked out by a large wave. Thru bolts and strong backing plates are mandatory. Mind posting a picture of the interior with...

3 questions:
All done by yourself?

Re: Mantus review

Greg, good to see that you stand behind your products. Post sale support is critical, and in this case post freebie.

I do not have your product that is being tested. However, I am a single-handed...

Re: Mantus review

Hey Andrew

Thanks for sharing this. Is it convex or concave? You did not mention if this is your primary, backup or storm. Since you are testing, I assume you probably forgot.
If it did not come...

Re: is too much trannie fluid bad?

Yeap, that is the most popular option, but a complete change is the one you can flush the contents to ensure a complete fluid replacement.
I did that to my tranny and it really smiled at me....:D:D

Re: is too much trannie fluid bad?

I think you meant Hurth, not Hurst?
I am not sure which Hurth model you have, but on my HW50 I use ATF as recommended.
To remove excess, use a turkey baster and keep it because you will need it...

Re: Searching boat for Atlantic crossing

You need to post where in South America you wish to go.

Re: Battery Switch rewired... wont turn OFF

You should have attached the cable to/from the control panel to the "Common" post, did you?
If you did, it could be that the switch is defective and not breaking the connection. Did you "feel" or...

Re: Pop Rivets

This would be my first choice, but not sure if you can have enough threads for a good gold.

Use monel rivets rather than stainless to minimize corrosion.

Re: Vented loop on head intake line

Is the head above or below the waterline?
The vented loop is usually on the "push" side of the pump, so between the pump and the bowl. If you put it before the pump it will suck in air.

Re: Found This Bristol for Sale - Thoughts for New Sailors?

I am sure most companies will insure older boats, but they do ask for a survey before they do.

Re: Found This Bristol for Sale - Thoughts for New Sailors?

Solid built boat and looks well kept. Good price too.
As mentioned before, get a survey to check the deck, the bottom, engine, rigging and sails.
Also: are the pictures recent and how long has it...

Re: Fiberglass Gelcoat

Most strippers do not harm gelcoat - are you sure your boat has never been painted? Check it out and see if there is any primer under the topcoat.

Re: Stringer/Floor repair

Re: Marina personnel attached battery wrong

Indeed, but negative could also be yellow.

Even when a proper color code is used, a human being still needs to do the connection - someone that knows what to do hopefully.
