Re: Electrical Upgrades

Okay, I'm going to attempt to resurrect this thread for its original purpose of sharing ideas for useful electrical upgrades.

I'll get the ball rolling again (hopefully) with my INTERIOR LED strip...

Re: Electrical Upgrades

The examples cited don't center on the use of LEDs and had much more dangerous factors.

Let's let this thread end here, then. My pride's not on the line and I would never want someone to put...

Re: Electrical Upgrades

Hey, guys. Let's not let this thread disintegrate into yet another endless debate about LED lights, eh? That horse was beat to death long ago. Caveat emptor, okay?

Re: Electrical Upgrades

My bubble is fully intact, Tom. 33 CFR Part 183, Subpart M (nav light certification) applies to dealers, distributors, and manufacturers of boats after 2002, not boat owners. I'm far more worried...

Electrical Upgrades

Starting this week, I'll be posting 5 or 6 articles on my blog that feature electrical projects that I've done to Summer Dance. I'll give a Reader's Digest version here and if you want to see more,...

Re: Need a pendant made...

If you have an old shroud or wire halyard laying around, or would just like to make it out stainless steel cable, buy a couple of thimbles and some Nicropress sleeves at your local West Marine store...

Re: Outboard motor charging upgrade

I don't know about Mercury outboards but they should basically be the same. You need two things on it: the generator, which consists of one or two coil assemblies; and the regulator/rectifier, which...

Re: Catalina 22 shrouds.

Lucky,

Also consider borrowing or buying a Loos tension gauge and learn how to tune the C22 rig. It'll reduce wear and tear and sail better.

Re: Catalina 22 fixer upper

Scratches through the gelcoat into the glass underneath would be a different color too. Could be paint after all, though. Just didn't want you to think that painting was your only option. Hard to say...

Re: Catalina 22 fixer upper

You're sure above the waterline is painted and not just oxidized gelcoat? They can look similar. The gelcoat can be restored by following Maine Sail's article on this site about compound buffing and...

Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

So here's what works best so far.

I've also been using 3M sanding disks in 600, 1000, and 1500 grit. The loop fabric on the 1000 grit disks comes off very easily, even by itself after some use. I...

Re: Tips For Compound, Polish & Wax

Maine Sail,

I accidentally let my compounding pad catch on some deck hardware a couple of times. It apparently tore some of the loops off the back and now the pad won't stick well to the buffer...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Don't know if it technically qualifies as a low-buck project because if you DIY, it shouldn't cost over $100 but I refinished my exterior and companionway teak woodwork this past winter for around...
