Main Message Board / water coming in the traveler
« on: April 27, 2019, 01:18:48 PM »
if you look at the picture, that is water coming out of the structure the traveler sits on top of.  I never could figure out where water was coming in and when we ground some of the gel coat for stress cracks, that water came pouring out.  dug it out to fiberglass and then put the air compressor on one of the screw holes of the traveler and sent water pouring out.  so i apparently have to take the entire traveler off and rebed it.  what do I use for the rebedding so water doesn't go in the screw holes (which have screws in them) and into the headliner?  thanks

Main Message Board / steering wheel removed
« on: March 17, 2019, 07:48:26 AM »
i came to my boat, at her winter storage, to find the steering wheel removed.  i don't know by whom or what. pictures (3) at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10215801050431617&set=pcb.10215801052151660&type=3&theater.  i found the wheel, the screw cover, and a metal "key" on the cockpit floor.  there seems to be two slots for the key on the stem, where do i put it?

thanks

m25 kabota engine, i guess westerbeke housing, my mechanic is having trouble finding a replacement housing for my boat and i guess mine is completely cracked.  he left a message with westerbeke yesterday but are there other sites that might have it in stock?

thanks

i have a 1986 hull 99 and thank you to Stu for the writeup about shelving, in the nav station, hanging locker.  now I have 2 more questions, is it supposed to drain into the bilge, because mine doesn't.  there's the big black hose that goes from the head to the holding tank and no other holes to drain.  and secondly, there was a build up of black caked something yet there is no smell.  I assume that means that hose is "weeping"?  i scrubbed the hell out of the floor yesterday so i'll see, with just sitting in the well and with sailing, what happens. 

thanks

Main Message Board / water for the head?
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:57:16 AM »
hull 99 1986, i can't remember what i do to get water into the head.  the boat was winterized so all i get is a small amount of pink coming out but no water.  what do i need to open to get water flowing into the toilet?  thanks

btw, i assume this means i don't have the engine water right either.  i did open what i thought was the seacock - the valve is in line with the hose.  i remember there was 3 things to open.  thanks

« on: June 05, 2018, 09:47:24 AM »
i can't get to my boat for a few days - where the transmission shafts a standard size of 1 inch?  i'm 1986 hull 99 and i looked in the manual and can't find a diameter for it.  i want to get an magnesium anode for it, before i launch.

thanks

Main Message Board / Nav Station Hanging Locker Storage Ideas
« on: April 19, 2018, 02:31:30 PM »
if you've done anything to improve the storage of your nav station hanging locker, like putting shelving in or something, can you post pictures?  i'd finally like to check that off my "todo" list and it's not as easy, at first glance, since , at least on my hanging locker there is 12 inches opening but 15 inches, in the cavern, and completely weirdly shaped.

thanks

Main Message Board / replacing tall vetus cowl
« on: January 22, 2018, 03:46:43 PM »
one of my vetus fresh air cowls left the boat so i wanted to replace both, since the other one is probably original, from 1986, and looks weathered.  i've put in pictures, the opening is 6 inches, for the cowl and 4 inches for the base.  is there any reason not to go with a cheaper and shorter cowl, which is also 4 inches in opening?  it seems i could replace both at 100 each or replace them with shorter ones for 35 each.  I do not live on the boat nor go for more than day sails so i'm not too worried about fresh air exchange. 

thanks

Main Message Board / boat bottom repair advice needed
« on: October 21, 2017, 06:31:29 AM »
pictures are at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e2obli3c7mv27di/AAA8aKllYMzmQg2HPNoo0-A9a?dl=0, one example at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/e2obli3c7mv27di/AAA8aKllYMzmQg2HPNoo0-A9a?dl=0&preview=P1040413.jpg

i have a blistered boat bottom, none look severe but i'm looking for what to do, videos for advice, etc... for how to fix it.  as far as i can tell, i'm to dremel or "hard sand" out the blisters, put on west 410, sand again, put on interleux 2000, sand, vc17.  i just want to confirm these are compatible products and i'm just looking for some how tos before i make a bad situation worse.

thanks

Main Message Board / need new sails
« on: October 09, 2017, 10:21:03 AM »
finally going to race my 1986 c34, hull #99 and i have the original dacron main sail.  the jib was replaced by a new dacron one, probably 8 years ago, before I had the boat.  we have,  relatively locally to detroit:  Doyle, UK, Ulmann, Boston, quantum, and a local small loft.  Does anyone have strong feelings one way or another about brands?

thanks
