Main Message Board / Canadian Pleasure Boat Licensing - Gov't. Outreach
« on: December 05, 2020, 12:21:31 PM »
Just was alerted to this by a fellow skipper:

Modernizing pleasure craft licensing | Let's Talk Transportation- Canada.ca

https://letstalktransportation.ca/pcl

A portal on the gov't. website to express your opinions.  It would be more useful to post your comments THERE, rather than here, although it certainly would be helpful to copy what you've written to them here for us to share.

Main Message Board / Raymarine ST4000+ autohelm master "reset"
« on: August 30, 2020, 10:29:35 AM »
This question came up on sbo.com yesterday:

I already have the user, service and installation manuals. I can see the default values on the Dealer setup page. Is that it? Just set them all to those and it's "reset" or is there a reset mode somewhere I can't find?  Also, I've heard switching from wheel to tiller and back to wheel resets something also?  I just replaced my old dead one with a used one from another boater here. I put in the settings that I know about, the "Catalina Cocktail", but it still steers like a drunk pirate. Also, the compass needs to be recalibrated, and I haven't done that yet.  I just want to make sure it's really reset.

After an alert respondent told him that he'd have to calibrate it by doing the sea trial first, Claude, a knowledgeable skipper who I have quoted here before ("What's In Your Muffler?" is a great example), provided this gem of information that I thought helpful to share.


I think that in the shop manual, the part that talks about installing a new circuit board is as close to the "reset" as you can get.. The attached is the little dance that I had to do to get the rudder reference transducer to work.. That transducer made a tremendous difference in making the pilot steer correctly.. Sounds like you've already done that one. The other thing I found is that the little push part of the wire connectors can be easily put in so that the spade is not in the connector.. the pilot will work very erratically that way.. :facepalm:

However, automatic transducer detection and rudder bar display won't occur unless enabled in Dealer Setup. This is an undocumented requirement from Raymarine. The setup sequence is as follows...

    Install and connect transducer.
    Enter Dealer Setup mode by pressing & holding Standby for 14 seconds.
    Press +1/-1 simultaneously to get Cal Lock screen.
    Press Disp to get Pilot Type screen.
    Use +1/-1 to change type to a different pilot type, any type.
    Press Standby for two seconds to save setting and exit Dealer Setup.
    Repeat Dealer Setup mode, change back to correct pilot type (wheel or tiller,) exit Dealer Setup.
    Enter User Setup mode by pressing & holding Standby for 2 seconds.
    Press Disp five times to change to the Bar Selection screen.
    Press +1/-1 to select "Rudd Bar" or "Steer Bar".
    Press Standby for two seconds to save setting and exit User Setup.
    Power down and back up.
    Rudder reference transducer should now be detected and displayed on the screen

Main Message Board / Fuel Starvation and The Obscure Check Ball Valve
« on: August 09, 2020, 10:07:43 AM »
On  September 20, 2019, I was motoring back from a few enjoyable nights at my favorite local anchorage when I experienced a fuel starvation issue for the first time in my boat.  We have sailed Aquavite since 1998.  The engine simply sputtered and died, would restart after a few minutes and die again.  There were no previous issues, ever.

I replaced the fuel pump.  I had corrected the fuel flow from the tank to the primary when we first got the boat.  I replaced the primary filter last year.  I replaced the secondary filter.   When a test sail proved fruitless, I had to go further.

I remembered reading the Racor manual ages ago about a "fuel check valve" that's cleverly hidden at the inlet of the filter housing.  It's called a ball check valve, which keeps fuel from emptying from the filter if the tank is below the filter, which makes sense.   I undid all the new fuel hoses I'd just put in (!) for the new fuel pump and unscrewed the primary filter and bowl, and then removed the housing.

The filter housing is the Racor 220 / 225 Spin On Series, using the ubiquitous Racor R24 Series filters, installed on most Catalina 34 boats.  On the top of the housing is a large plastic screw, identified in the manual’s first page diagram as the “Flow Check Valve” and on page four, it is replacement part list Item 3, part # RK20011, “Check ball valve and plastic cap.” 

I unscrewed the check valve plug and O ring and found 33 years of accumulated tiny black particles that kept the ball from rising and allowing fuel to flow.  It didn't take much crud at all to stop the ball from working properly.  It's a very small chamber about the size of a quarter and the ball is smaller than a dime.  There was actually no "bad fuel" issue, just decades of what I would consider to be normal stuff found in any liquid.  I cleaned it out, and things are back to working properly.

If you have fuel starvation issues, or anything that reduces your engine RPMs, consider this obscure fuel filter housing ball check valve as part of your diagnostics.

I posted this in the C34 Activities section, FYI, re: 2020 Officers Conference Call & Election

https://c34.org/bbs/index.php/topic,10542.0.html

I sent this email on March 20, 2020:

Dear C34IA Board Members (Fleet Captains & Past Commodores) and Officers,

This is usually the time of year for our annual election and conference call.

Unfortunately, the global circumstances have put a halt on everything.

Both Commodore Noah Rosenblatt and Vice Commodore Jon Windt have graciously agreed to serve another year, having already served for two years, and they have both made additional contributions to our Website Organizing Committee.

We feel it would be prudent, therefore, to hold off and postpone an election this year.  The same for the conference call with over a dozen of you, who most likely have personal and familial responsibilities to attend to in these trying times.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Be safe, stay well.

Main Message Board / Yellow Fuse Holder in POSI FLO Fuel Pump
« on: October 30, 2019, 05:02:07 PM »
In this thread https://c34.org/bbs/index.php/topic,2515.msg13337.html#msg13337 there is a picture of this pump.  It shows a yellow fuse holder.  It's labeled FUSE.

I have not be able to get the yellow holder open.  I have avoided heavy effort to open it to not break it.  I have asked a few friends and no one knew.

Has anyone had experience with one of these?

Main Message Board / Microwave Replacement
« on: October 03, 2019, 01:38:37 PM »
Found this today:

http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2989288#post2989288

SUCCESS!!!!!! ISSUE SOLVED!!! I have a similar microwave problem with my Catalina 320. Just found a microwave from Walmart online, Proctor Silex PS-P70T20AL-V1B that is same size or smaller than the burnt out Samsung. 9.5 x 17.5 x 12. $33. Solves the 9.5 inch height issue. I have looked for a couple of years, hundreds of microwaves. I was about to take a saw to the cabinet and just happened to stumble across this.

Main Message Board / Prospective Owner Questions
« on: May 07, 2019, 09:17:18 PM »
This is from George who we are in the process of signing up to the forum.  Due to a glitch which could be software or at my end between my ears (!  :shock:), I offered to post his questions for him until he gets "in."  He can, of ccourse, read the forum, just can't post.

Here's his note to me:

Thank you Stu Jackson. Here us what I have, I. Looking at a 1987 Catalina 34, it looks to be in exallent condition. Even though I'm not a sailor yet I have been a heavy equipment repair contractor for 30 years. Still there is nothing better then asking experts.
  Our kids are grown and my budget for a boat is 40,000.00. This Catilina I think they will accept 32,000, of course i will get a survey. Here is my biggest question: on my budget and being 6'4" and doing 80% coastal cruising and some local islands 150 miles from shore and maybe some cruising down to Mexico is this a good boat for us. Again the boat looks excellent in every way, it comes with an inflatable in good condition with a 3 hp motor but the boat has original instruments, no GPS and no radar. My experience is 16 foot sailboat rentals quite often when young and a collage summer sailing class 10 years ago on an island packet. I love the looks the interior looks amazing but I must admit my budget is keeping out of a blue water boat accept for real fixer uppers. One day I would love to cross an ocean. I feel like a little boy with a pipe dream. Thank you Stu.

3.   Associate Editor report – Jack Hutteball
a.   Jack noted that he had prepared a friendly outreach on the forum to solicit articles, including guidelines and did not receive a great response, and will try again.  He encouraged Fleet articles.  Jack advised that Fleet articles can still be submitted and may be published by Mainsheet, with no guarantees as in the past.
4.   Technical Editor report – John Nixon

a.   Commodore Noah Rosenblatt, Vice Commodore Jon Windt and Secretary Stu Jackson will form a committee.  The purpose of the committee’s work will be to close the loop on the outstanding issues described in the 2018 Meeting Notes and the 2019 Agenda, and to clearly document all updating activities related to the website and IA records for clarity for those who follow us in the future.  Stu noted that the committee could meet via freeconferencecall.com.
b.   While not discussed in detail during the Meeting because of the formation of the committee, the 2018 Meeting Notes and the 2019 Agenda describe the scope of the committee work in this Item 5b and Items 6 & 8c below.
1)   List of Forum/Message Board Administrators/Moderators 
a)   Dave advised that he would add Noah and Jon as Forum Administrators. 
2)   Administrators to review and accept new respondents on the Forum – Dave noted that we do this manually to avoid spam & bots.

4)   Wordpress authorized individuals & methodology
5)   List of Sue Clancy’s “How To” memos
6.   “To Do List” from 2017 Officers Meeting Notes
a.   These items should also be included in the committee’s overview

a.   Fleet Captain comments
1)   Ray noted that Fleet 1 has suffered significant decline from 50 to 22 although it maintains an active racing contingent.

3)   Stu reported that Bob Schuldenfrei advised that Paul Alcock would be the new Captain for Fleet 14.
b.   Mainsheet – No discussion this year.
c.   Promotion of Fleet section on Home Page – This means from the menu on the Home Page, not the sections on the forum.  The intent is to have this section a place for fleet news that has been discontinued from Mainsheet magazine.  The committee should review and make recommendations.
9.   Fleet Support  -  Motion made, seconded and passed to extend Fleet Support for $15 per boat as of April 1st with those fleets that choose not to accept OK, requires a discussion and a motion for renewal every year.

3)   Send backup copies of database in FileMakerPro and xls to Commodore, Vice Commodore and Treasurer; send C355 list to Ed & Diane Walters  (their email address is:  dgwalters@gmail.com)  The agenda included the background of our relationship with the C355 skippers.
e.   Stu to develop list of accounts – We discussed various methods of sharing information,  Stu will do.
f.      Stu to prepare list of website sections based on Sue’s input for Ownership, as well as Forum Administrators (Noah has been added to Wordpress access).  These goals are from Sue’s 2017 emails to Stu:  “When I speak of ownership, I am mostly referring to someone who can do the following tasks:  Update content when needed;  Answer questions from website users related to the content area; Periodically review the content for relevance and functionality;  Ensure that there is no junk that is not appropriate for the area on there – Maybe monthly.”
1)   Home page and general navigation – Noah volunteered for this item
2)   General Fleet areas/navigation – Jon volunteered for this item as part of the Vice Commodore’s fleet responsibilities
a)   Individual fleet areas – these have been identified – Fleet Captains or their delegates will provide individual fleet content
3)   Tech Notes – Jack Hutteball
4)   Tech wiki – Dave Sanner
5)   Documents – John Nixon volunteered for this item
6)   Association – Possibly break out the Owner Database from this – Stu will do this
7)   Membership/Join –  Stu will do this
8)   Photo Gallery – not assigned, low priority at this time since photos revolve on their own.  Stu will review his emails with Dave Sanner who may have sent Stu  this info.
7.   National Regatta – Ray was absent; no regatta planned.
8.   Fleets –Noah will send the Fleet Formation Package to new VC Jon
a.   Fleet Captain comments -  Bob volunteered any help he could for new fleet formation and any related questions
b.   Mainsheet – Concern was expressed that the magazine still prints selective fleet articles while still discontinuing fleet articles for all boats.  Fleet articles can still be submitted and can include Lessons Learned; not all have to be “something exciting.”
c.   Promotion of Fleet section on Home Page – This means from the menu on the Home Page, not the sections on the forum.  Jon will oversee.
9.   Fleet Support  -  Motion made, seconded and passed to extend Fleet Support for $15 per boat as of April 1st with those fleets that choose not to accept OK, requires a discussion and a motion for renewal every year.

Main Message Board / 3/8" Hose to Water Heater
« on: April 30, 2018, 05:43:44 PM »
Found this from Ward, with a C30, over on abo:

My M25-XP has two short lengths of 3/8" hose running from the thermostat housing to brass adapters where it transitions to 5/8" hose.  Time to change out these hoses.  I checked with the usual sources and the only 3/8" marine hose I can find is fuel line and silicone heater hose. The silicone heater hose is not fuel/oil compatible.  Anyone know where I can find 3/8" hose suitable for this use?


He found this:

Found a hose that will work at the local AutoZone. I had to look through their formed coolant hose rack to find it.

Dayco 87001 is a 3/8" ID Formed Coolant Hose about 14" long with a 90 Deg bend at one end. It will give me the 3/8" 90 Deg formed hose I need as well as the 3/8" straight hose.

Now that I have received my BC province license, I have to formally import my boat into Canada.  Because the licensing agency doesn't talk to CPB, they issued the license without checking to see if I'd paid the import tax.  The border agent let me back into Canada yesterday (Saturday) but gave me only 48 hours to pay the import tax before I'd get fined!!!  All this time I thought because I'd received the license that I'd have time to get some comps without time pressure.

Accordingly, I'd appreciate your help to be able to assemble a few "comparatives" for the price of a used 1986 Catalina 34, because I need some supporting advertisements to show them what I feel is the real value of a 32 year old boat.

What I need includes:

1.  The lowest price possible.  Doesn't even matter if the boat is a wreck (as long as the ad doesn't say that).  :D  It doesn't matter where the boat is located.

2.  I need a COPY of the ad that says the normal stuff, but it must include the year and asking price (unless you have access to actual selling prices which might be lower). "1986 Catalina 34, $xy,000," and any other details.

3.  To widen the possibilities, I'd consider a 1987 boat, too, but 1986 would be better.  The newer the boat the higher the price usually is.

4.  If you have sold your 1986 boat and are still hanging around this forum, please let me know what you sold it for.

I'll check the For Sale section here, too.

Easiest way for you to get me this info is to send me an email with an embedded or attached copy of the actual ad (mraquaq@aol.com).  Just an email text telling me your sales story will NOT, unfortunately, work for my use with the govt tax folks.
