Main Message Board / New York to Bahamas
« on: April 18, 2018, 12:23:03 AM »
Hi All,
I am not a ‘real’ member here but I have been working on my 34 for 5 years and just got back to Florida after taking the boat from NY to Eleuthera.  We did a mix of ICW and offshore inlet hops.  Bahamas gets damn windy in the winter too.  My 2c is bring a big dinghy, I brought a 10.5 Achilles with a 15 yammy 2 stroke.  On Garhauer 1.25” Daviits.  Solar on the David’s and dodger.  New sails from rolly.  Amazing few months.  I run sams club GC2s x4.  TV, laptops no problem. Below deck autopilot was the best thing we did.  If anyone wants any advice or just needed a confidence boost to leave, the C34 can handle more than you can, cast the lines and go, you will not regret it!

Main Message Board / Fuel Tank Ground Wire
« on: March 09, 2017, 08:31:20 PM »
I replaced my fuel sender and it works well, however upon removing the aft water tank i found that i have a wire going from the aft tab of the fuel tank to 'nowhere'.  I connected a new wire to that tab from the sender upon install, but did not question the wire that went from that tab aft.  I pulled it out and its just bare.  I am using Noah's pic here to show it, where does that normally terminate?

Hi All- The hinges on the frame of my opening ports in the Galley and Head have cracked.  The ports are sealed into the plexiglass with black sealant.  I assume this is Dow 795 or similar, as was in the larger fixed port I rebedded last year.  That port came out pretty easily with a razor blade.  These opening ports seem to be more of a chore, the razor wouldn't slice through.  Any ideas for removing them without cracking the plexi?  I have been using some 'Marine Formula' 5200 remover on the becksons in the main salon as I am rebedding those as well, I may try that in the screw holes of these ports.  I haven't seen a post of anyone doing this removal job.  I have the new 'gray enterprises' ports on order, should be here next week or so.
