Re: Raw water cooling - walk away?

Every item on a boat has a life. Raw water cooled engines worked as well as fresh water ones. The age of the engine (hours of use) is the limiting factor. Each engine will fail from some place or the...

Re: Cedar VS Epoxied Marine Ply

You seem unexperienced both for a boat and woodwork. Use marin ply mainly. You might need some wood for some connective parts. Plywood is easier to work with and will cover nearly all areas with a...

Re: C-lark 14 traveller repair

Pictures will help a lot. Since the eye straps are streched out, the bolts do not have backing plates or they are not big or thick enough to hold the eye straps.

Re: I need more horsepower

Re: Need Help with Neglected Boat

It already fell apart, not worth the money or time to be consumed for repair. I doubt it will be good even for a single summer without proper maintanence.

Re: Sandpiper 565 waterline location

The easiest method is to put her back in water and mark the waterline. Only marking the head and the rear should be enough. A straight line connecting these two points is the waterline. Measure the...

Termites are the only bugs that cannot be killed (not all of them) with any type of chemicals. All the wood should be taken off the boat, chemicals applied and new woods inserted (hopefully without...

Re: Rudder repair Edel 22

Re: Fuel Line Replacement

1. Each fitting means a possibility to leak.
2. It is always recommended to use rubber tubing instead of metal tubing. Vibrations cause cracks on the metal tubing.

Re: Fuel Line Replacement

Replace the metal tubing going to the tank and the rubber tubing with a single rubber tubing.

Re: Forwar - Neutral - Reverse when sailing??

Sail drives should be left in neutral, otherwise the conical clutch is damaged. Direct dirives in reverse, to overcome prop noise.

Re: Jeanneau SO439 & DS44 vs Beneteau Oceanis 45 vs Bavaria Vision 46

Jeanneau or Beneteau are my preferences. Although Bavaria is a good boat, the drives of the Volvo are more prone to fail early. Yanmar is much better.
