Main Message Board / Ye old windless question
« on: May 10, 2019, 01:56:22 PM »
I have done some investigating including the one done on a Catalina 1990 boat just a few hull numbers from mine. I have the same locker set up etc.
I have a new 35lb Manson anchor and older rubber covered chain (about 3 feet) attached to 3/4 inch line. In any event, I am looking for a good and reliable windless model. any suggestions. I like the Lewmar stuff but the one used in the tech post is not made anymore. Thanks very much

Main Message Board / Failure to drain hot water heater
« on: March 25, 2019, 11:29:45 AM »
I noticed when I went to check out the boat that I failed to drain the hot water heater this year. So I promptly drained it!!  Any chance it survived?

I have inquired before but now its decision time
I have decided on Green Point Marine, Worton Creek
but friends say that Balto is closer to Pa or that Rock Hall is closer to open water
Is anyone at or near Greenpoint and what can you tell me about the location and their work?

Seems to be that for an East Coast trip it would be wise to have an extra along
Where is the best place to buy?

Main Message Board / Cetol remover
« on: May 16, 2018, 10:11:31 AM »
Time to sand or otherwise remove the cetol on the exterior wood.
Is there a good way to avoid sanding by using a remover and if so, whats a good brand?

Main Message Board / Fuel filter and racor filter
« on: May 02, 2018, 05:26:50 AM »
After those filters are changed out (I have never done it in the past but I would like to do so this year) is there some bleeding of the system that has to be done before I start the engine. Just curious about the protocol. Is it just like the oil filter; where after the change out, you just run the engine?

Main Message Board / Location, location
« on: April 26, 2018, 06:18:25 AM »
I am now living in Williamsport and Haverford Pa. Long Island is just too inconvenient.
Specific Suggestions on best places to keep the boat?
NJ shore? Chesapeake?
I checked Neshemy State Park but thats way up the Delaware above Philadelphia.

Main Message Board / Zinc in our Seaward / Atward hot water heaters
« on: February 14, 2018, 05:06:49 PM »
Do we have zincs that need to be replaced in our hot water heaters. I have a 1990 34 Tall rig. I replaced it once with the same hot water heater that the boat came with, a believe a Seaward.

Main Message Board / Rigging replacement
« on: January 02, 2018, 07:27:15 AM »
Boat is 1990 tall rig kept in LI Sound for its entire life. Lightly used. The standing rigging looks good, so far as I can see it but should it be replaced for age reasons alone? And if so, what vendors are recommended?

My plastic slider door finally broke where the handle is. How the heck does one remove it and any ideas for replacement with something nicer?
