Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Was it Canada Metals? They now own Rocna.

Rocna, unless there is a good reason for a take-apart anchor.

Re: Replacing a Raritan Water Heater

You went backwards. The Raritan is a much better water heater than a Kuuma. As is Torrid, IsoTemp, and Seaward.
The Kuuma is a cheap copy of the Seaward.

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

It should still be removable.

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

There is no reason for the through hull nut. It adds nothing to the installation. The flange adaptor is the nut.

Re: battery charging setup

Isolators similar to the one below have a .7 volt drop. That means if the alt or other device is set for 14.4 your battery is only getting 13.7 volts, minus any drop from connections. Not good.

Re: electrical

The isolation transformer is the first item after the shorepower inlet. It's purpose is to totally eliminate any electrical connection between shore and the boat. This is the best solution for...

Re: electrical

If not sized properly the transformer will fry. It is installed before the breaker.

Re: electrical

The isolation transformer has to be sized for the shorepower connection - typically 30 amps for a 28' boat. Victron makes one that would do the job nicely.

With an isolation transformer you are...

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

You will have to remove the through hulls because the threaded section will have to be cut to the proper length so it doesn't bottom out in the flange. This link shows the entire installation.

There is nothing illegal about a bottom draining holding tank. Nor is there anything illegal in having a gravity draining holding tank - the simplest system of all. The seacock can be tied shut with...

Re: Need to replacey Pro Mariner charger with what?

Promariner PronauticP is one of the best built and designed chargers available. Very different from the other Promariner chargers. Would be my first choice.

Xantrex is nowhere close in design or...

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?

Probably the easiest addition to any sailboat is to make the area forward watertight from the bow to the aft end of the V-berth and to the berth top. James Baldwin (Atom) did this to his Triton....

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

Yes, it is for new construction. If re-wiring an older boat and not changing every single wire better to stick to red/black. Adding a third color is just confusing the issue.

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?

Problem is you may either not have access to the hole or may not be able to find it in time, moving stored gear etc. In that case the pump wins.

The only gas powered pump we sold recently for a...

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?

Probably a Pacer pump either on a pto or gas powered for large capacity water removal. Problem of the pto is that if the engine dies you're sunk. Gas powered can be placed on deck well above water...

Re: Lithium Ion batteries

Based on Maine's post and what I know about LiFePo4 care and feeding, yes.

Good marketing though.

Re: best below waterline hose?

No. They are designed to be mounted upright.

I agree with IStream and others. The first strainer is for a fresh water pump, and only that.

The best strainer is probable a Groco ARG. GROCO...

If you include the entire system - head, holding tank, macerator etc - possibly cheaper.

But if the op just needs to replace the head nowhere close.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Good point. Boreal must be a production boat with over 20 sailing currently. Semi-custom but still production.

The only boats not "production" are the one-offs.
