Main Message Board / Re: Boom outhaul replacement
« on: May 21, 2009, 09:54:52 AM »
Payton, I had the same problem when I bought my boat last year.  I removed both end fittings so I could get a better view through the boom.  If the outhaul line is too slack, over time with all the boom movement and boat bouncing around the pulley with the swivel on it turns on itself & binds the line. I also had to drop the forward internal pulley to be able to pull out the blocks & line to straighten everything out and I now keep a slight tension on the outhaul to help alleviate this problem. I also have an internal reef line and having both ends off I could see that the reef line had been run through the outhaul lines so I reran that also. Fortunately I had added a fixed vang so the it supported the boom while it was detached from the mast. I also used a large screwdriver and a hammer and slowly separated the fittings from the boom.

I have a mK1.5 with the radar mounted on the stern with an 8' pole.  I have had no problems with the range.  Also mounted on the post below the radar is an emergency night time cockpit light that has an on/off switch mounted on the engine start panel. Above the radar mounted on the stainless ring is the GPS Rcvr. and a TV Antenna. The radar post also came with a dinghy motor lift that drops into supports mounted on the pole. When not in use the lift sits in the garage.  The post was situated on the starboard side so when the lift is on it brings up the motor at the proper spot where the motor mount sits on the port side.  (The motor mount is not on the stanchion in the picture).  Everything is outside stanchions.  The Garhauer people know all the Cat.34 models & supplied me with the proper hardware.  I also added an S shaped 1 1/4" guard to make it easier to run all the cable and to mount the display.

Your seat attachment looks great.  Did you buy these from Zarcor this way or did you modify them after you bought them?

I did not buy one yet, info on it says it extends to 15" and it looks like the picture posted earlier.  Maybe a call or email to their customer service dept. would confirm it.  Since I have not actually seen one other than the picture, maybe somebody on this site that has one could confirm that this item would work.

Thanks to everybody for their replies,  when I get back to the boat I will try the suggestions mentioned & if they don't work thanks for the information about Seaward.  Hi Dave, Its Ron Volk from SYC ex GOOSE Cat 27 & 30 sailor.

Main Message Board / Hot water heater on/off switch
« on: June 14, 2008, 12:14:09 PM »
Is there an on/off switch for the hot water heater (hull #1235).  I can only find a push button on the panel that looks like a trip breaker for overload purposes.  When I push on it it does not pop out like an on/off switch would do.  I am concerned about the longevity of the heater and its coils if they are always on while the boat is in port and AC power is connected to the boat.     :?:
