Re: Yanmar 1GM issues

As a previous poster said your prop is probably over pitched. That is why your seeing black smoke and the engine is lugging when you go above 2400 rpm. A properly pitched prop will have you at hull...

Re: smoke filling up the cabin

Full throttle does not necessarily mean max rpm. The OP can tell us what he meant. In the navy you have full speed and flank.... Doesn't really matter, I still stand by my original post. Which was...

Re: smoke filling up the cabin

No one. Much like no one in this thread said max rpm except you. What is your point?

Re: smoke filling up the cabin

I don't know about running at "max rpm", I don't know why people would want to. I wouldn't unless I'm in deep trouble.

Having said that I would note that a diesel engine while cruising should be...

Re: Passenger sick for two days after day sail???

Have a high school friend who is like that. Was out of it for days afterwards. Some people just can't handle the motion.

Re: Fuel leak

What kind of engine do you have? As posted earlier a leak in the return shouldn't affect your starting.

Older Yanmars for instance, if it's cold, want the throttle advanced when starting. Remeber...

Re: Icw

Georgia was the worst by far when we did the trip two years ago. Tides there are extreme, 5'+ and there are places where you'll need to go through on rising tide. Going outside in Florida to avoid...

Re: How hot does your diesel run?

Having had other problems with my engine I've been monitoring the engine temp for several months now (fresh water cooled 3GMF). The temp at the top of the thermostat housing using an infrared...

Re: Do dock lines go with the boat?

Very cheap but not worth the hassle. I'd buy new lines. When I leave the slip I'd just cut the boat free of the dock lines......:D :eek:

Re: Slip vs. T-head

On a T head fender boards are your friend! Also good spring lines to keep the boat from surging.

Re: Where is the best cruising in the USA?

I live on the Chesapeake bay & love it. I agree with what others have said about the bay. Having sailed in the keys I have to say that weather in the keys is better.

Re: Caliber 28 vs. Island Packet 27 vs. Com-Pac 27

My dad had a com-pac 27 & loved it. They are well built boats, if you can find one I'd take that over the IP. Don't know the caliber 27 but have sailed one of their larger boats (47) from Trinidad...

Re: Hurricane Sandy: How did you do?

Rode out the storm in Oxford, Md with no problems. Tide never rose above the docks, came close each time, probably will this evening.

I always wonder about people who don't remove head sails...

Re: Things you would only see in a marina!

On Tilghman Island, Chesapeake bay when the watermen get a new engine for their boat, they keep it in the back of their pickup for at least a week before putting it in. I always thought that this was...

Re: i need help bad

Triple your pendant, each additional line should be a little longer than the previous one, use chafing gear, remove anchor. Assuming you trust your mooring you are better off on the mooring than in a...

Re: Diesel Full Cutoff (Shutoff)

Who made the control panel? That's you're best bet for finding a replacement for the rod.

Like others said, just push it back in when the engine stops. The control is just another teleflex-morse...

Re: Removing the mast

I think you'll find the yard cost to do it will be less than the cost of pulling the mast.

Re: Removing the mast

Yeah, no need to unstep the mast. Find yourself a lightweight person. I had the yard replace my windex & anometer (sp?) this summer. Lazy jacks are even easier. No need to pull the stick.

Re: What would cause this?

Yeah, If that much water/moisture from the anchor locker is getting into the v-berth, for me, it's a good reason to run away. ShockT has it right about paint & I agree something doesn't seem kosher.

Re: sailing with the incredible hulk

Like David said it's not rocket science. I would bet that you poped a connection (swage sp?) between the chain and cable. On my setup that appears to be the weakest link. If he broke the quadrant...
