Possibly…. I won’t know for sure until I can get back on the boat after the thaw…. But should’t everything go through the shaft?

When I pulled her out this fall, I noticed that I was the sacrificial anode for a neighboring boat.... (yes, I'm installing a galvanic isolator) The hull plate took the brunt of the damage and needs to be replaced....

Anyone do this?  Procedure, thoughts?  Thanks....

Did you find something?

I think there has been a ton of research on this and I agree with your conclusion. If you are going to convert to Propane, you need to gut the cooking system.   Why gut it?   

1. Fuel Source - you need to have a “Gas Bilge” for the leaking propane to escape out of the boat as Propane is heavier than air.
2. Gas Lines - this you may be able to resume, but they will not be long enough, so you’ll need to replace.
3. Stove -  Yup..  it will burn it, but not safe

In the Great Lakes I found a place, but if I go cruising, I’ll need to get creative.

I think we have this figured out, time will tell.

1.  The Petcock was definitely plugged.  I contacted Baldwin (DAHL) and the engineers told me to shove an 1/8" dowel or something up the Petcock.  That worked.
2.  The liquid in the bowl is not draining... I'm getting  a steady stream of Diesel, but the liquid in the bowl is staying constant.   I took more out than what is in the bowl.  I'm suspecting that it's siphoning directly from the Fuel Tank.

Next Steps: Close the Petcock on the Fuel Tank or pinch it after the fuel pump, then try again.  I may have to remove the filter.

Stay tuned.

I have and read them repeatedly.  Just looking to see if anyone has experience with this specific brand of crazy. :-)

Hey all.  I'm having a challenge draining a DAHL 100 Fuel/Water Separator.

Is there some magic beyond turning the spigot?

Hello All.

I want to add a Smart Battery Monitoring System to my 86' Mk1.

What makes and models have you used?  How was the install?

Thank You.

Anything left?
