Main Message Board / alternator
« on: April 12, 2020, 01:09:12 PM »
boat is for sale again.  only used it 5 times last year because of weather and family issues.  It needs a new loving home.  Anyway, moving it to the broker's yard yesterday the tach fell to 0 and it stopped charging.  Took the alternator apart, diode pack appears to test ok and brushes are good.  Anything else I can check before I get it bench tested tomorrow.  Numbers are too faded to read.  If it tests bad, what part number should I replace it with?  Prestolite 55 amp.  If it tests ok, where is the next place to look.  All the wires are in good shape and connections tight at the generator.  I have not checked behind the engine instruments yet.

Main Message Board / thru hull
« on: May 21, 2019, 12:20:35 PM »
Need to order a y valve so I can get my wash down system working again.  Anybody know what size the macerator thru hull is?  I think it is 1/2" NPT, but hate to order the wrong size.

Main Message Board / fuel lines
« on: May 07, 2019, 06:06:43 AM »
Checked the wiki and did a quick search, couldn't find the answer.  I think the fuel lines are 5/8", anyone know how much hose I will need to change both the supply and return lines.

Main Message Board / Land Yacht
« on: March 08, 2019, 01:15:45 PM »
Recently purchased a new toy.  95 VW camper van.  Simple system, start battery and house battery.  House is charged by engine through a selenoid or via shore power.  Second day of our first road trip killed the house battery because the selenoid failed. Would like to add a circuit to show the house is getting charged.  Have a couple ideas.  Electrical Guru's what do you think?  One pic shows a warning light.  I think I will use a volt meter instead.  I only   want to show charging when the engine is running not house battery voltage.  Have a seperate system for that.

Main Message Board / fresh water pump
« on: September 12, 2018, 06:47:04 AM »
I was on the boat yesterday getting ready to be pulled for the approaching hurricane.  I noticed a leak from what looks like the pressure switch or perhaps the pump itself.  I tightend the screws, didn't help.  Didn't have time to investigate more.  Is there a gasket that maybe failed or should I be looking for a new pump.

Main Message Board / Back in the Fleet
« on: February 20, 2018, 03:18:30 PM »
After a trip to Fla looking at trawlers and marinas, we came home very disappointed.  Thankfully we are friends with the broker, he let us out of the contract.  Luna Loca is staying with us, found a new slip half hour closer to home, ready for more adventures in a new part of the bay.  Stu send the renewal forms please :)

Main Message Board / Time for a change
« on: September 25, 2017, 07:09:17 PM »
It has been a great 17 run, but retirement brings other options.  Luna Loca 1990 MK 1.5 is on the market.  The Admiral and I want to bare boat in various location as we travel the next few years before investing in another boat sometime in the future.  Located on the Chesapeake.  Cori Williams is the broker at or 804 776 9888.  Should be on in the next couple days.  Been a great part of the family, will miss her, but our usage over previous years is way down.  She needs a new loving home.  Stu, Ron, Lance, Michael, Jon and countless others I can't think of right now, it has been a pleasure knowing and working with you. Will try to stay active on the forum

Main Message Board / Compression Test
« on: May 17, 2017, 05:59:01 AM »
I don't seem to be making as much power and getting a lot of black smoke at full throttle.  Think I need to do a compression test.  Should I remove the glow plug or injector for the gauge?  Anybody know what size it is?

Main Message Board / pronautic 1230P
« on: May 06, 2017, 06:19:46 PM »
What is the trick to get the charger into equalizaton mode? Following the directions, but nothing happens. Holding the setup button, but can't get the lights to flash.

Main Message Board / glue
« on: April 24, 2017, 12:24:33 PM »
clumsy moment, lost my balance and fell on the cockpit table.  Edson table with drink holders in the mount.  What is the best glue to use on teak?  Assume I need to use some rubbing alcohol to remove any oil before I glue and clamp.

Main Message Board / maybe moving up
« on: April 05, 2017, 04:53:17 PM »
I know we have some 380 owners here, going to look at a 2000 380, give the admiral something to do while I paint the bottom.  Any quirks or gotyas we should be looking for?

Main Message Board / electronic repair
« on: March 28, 2017, 03:17:19 PM »
Not necessarily boat related.  I'm a tinkerer, a neighbor gave me a 5 year old LG flat screen that suddenly stopped working.  Another neighbor, who is much better at electronic repairs than I suggested it was probably just a bad capacitor.  Took the main board out and nothing looked a miss.  Turned to Google in search of a new board.  Instead I found this tip.  Many electronic boards/components fail because the heating/cooling cycles crack the solder joints. Most are microscopic, not visible to the eye. It was suggested that I put the board on a piece of cardboard and bake it in an electric oven at 385, which is slightly over the temp most solders flow.  In for 10 minutes, air cool.  When cool to the touch, reinstall.  Voila, it works again.  Tip might be useful for other electronics, as long as the board is removable from the case and any attached plastic fairings.

Main Message Board / rpm
« on: September 25, 2016, 04:13:43 PM »
This one has got be stumped.  Came to the boat yesterday, plug in shore power overnight.  Batteries full when we left the dock.  On the way to a 3 hour sail, max rpm is 2700 going out the channel, normal is 2900, so suspect some fouling.  Anchor out for lunch, 2 fridges running, navigation still on, ice maker running off the inverter for 2-3 hours.  Coming home motoring into the wind max we could get was 2500 rpm.  Alt belt is in good shape and proper tension.  Wires off the alternator are clean and tight. This is the second time in the last couple weeks this has happened.  Pretty sure it is an indicator problem, not mechanical, what am I missing, not sure where to look?  Alternator is the OEM 55 amp motorola, maybe it is giving me hints that it is dying
