Main Message Board / Who got the best “boat related” Christmas present?
« on: December 28, 2019, 02:22:35 PM »
I’ve been nursing a crappy hit and miss dinghy outboard for a few years...  My son bought me a new 5hp Honda. 
He’s taken some of the adventure out of making it to shore.

Would love to see some solutions for holding the anchor locker hatches open while pulling up the anchor?


Main Message Board / File size too large
« on: March 30, 2017, 04:32:16 PM »
There have been many occasions that I have attempted to contribute a pic that I thought might help out a fellow C34eerrer only to be told ....naa you can't do that.  I'm lazy so I give up easy.
I was under the impression that storage space has gotten dirt cheap.  Any chance this changes?

1988 mk1 #677
Could somebody help,  I need the Lewmar model #for the two sets of winches on my boat.  I disassembled them at the end of the season, jotted down a few replacement parts I needed but forgot to get the model #'s.  I want to order the parts so I have them when I make the trip down.

Main Message Board / Air lock
« on: August 27, 2016, 12:47:03 PM »
I had to change my water heater and I'm having trouble clearing the air from the line.  I've drained the coolant more than a few times over the years but I've never had this much difficulty.  I'm thinking I have to disconnect the hoses at the engine that go to the WH ? but then what?

Has anyone installed a toilet with a larger bowl that fits in the existing location without a lot of modifications.

Main Message Board / cng refills
« on: August 09, 2016, 10:23:17 AM »
Any suggestions on where to get a refill exchange around Baltimore.  Short of that could someone point out the link to the homemade thingamagig for refilling?  Having trouble with the search.

Adapter, that's the word I was looking for.

Has anyone modified their Garhauer hoist for one person operation while standing in the dinghy.

Main Message Board / transmission fluid?
« on: June 09, 2016, 10:13:46 AM »
25xp engine.
How much ATF fluid goes in our transmission.
I just drain my fluid and would like to refill with the right amount and compare it to the amount that came out.


Edit:  Why didn't you check the level on the dipstick first, you ask?   Because I'm a big Dummy.

Main Message Board / lifelines
« on: May 25, 2016, 08:13:32 AM »
My vinyl coated lifelines look like merda.  Cracked, sun burnt brown, there's no salvaging them.  Is there any reason to not just strip the vinyl off and use them as bare stainless?

Main Message Board / Battery longevity
« on: May 24, 2016, 08:38:43 AM »
My four house bank (generic  6v Sam's Club) batteries are dated 5/08 and seem to be holding a charge.  We are scheduled to relaunch next week and begin a cruise.  The batteries performed well last year but I'm beginning to wonder if 8 yrs is pushing things.  I'm leaning towards replacement because I don't want problems on the water but I would like to get a feel for how many years other folks get before I toss them.

Main Message Board / Anniversary
« on: January 22, 2014, 03:39:44 PM »
Just curious,  does anyone know when the first 34 was born?

Seems to me we should be getting close to a thirtieth birthday?

Main Message Board / posting pics
« on: September 06, 2013, 05:15:24 PM »
I'm starting over with a new operating system and am having trouble posting pics from a new camera.
It would help me a bunch if someone could tell me what the size requirements are for pics?

I keep getting complaints that its too big (imagine that).

Main Message Board / Broke thru hull fitting
« on: May 23, 2013, 10:31:44 PM »
Just a heads up.
I happened to look inside my anchor locker thru hull fitting when I was walking around outside the boat before launch.  
There was a substantial crack that ran from 2 to 10 on the clock.
When I tried to remove it for replacement it simply crumbled in my hands.

 The plastic had turned to oatmeal.
