Main Message Board / CHARTPLOTTER
« on: May 03, 2002, 05:25:05 AM »
Jack,  I think the wiring would look better if you went into the pedestal guard up to the other pod.  When you install the new pod you will have to be careful of the wiring inside on the guard.  Mine is on the stbd side of pedestal.  However I took the easier way of just drilling a hole in the bottom of the existing pod.  I bought a rubber grommet the dia. of the cable and hole.  I then put a little sealer on the inside of the pod where the wire came through.  It looks pretty good.  A wire through the guard in your case would be more neater looking.  Fishing a wire up the guard should be no problem especially with a coat hanger wire or similiar item..

Hi Jack,  I installed a garmin 176c in the same area.  I wired into the pod that holds the depth and speed.  There is a good connection in there with a good voltage reading.  I used the small mount that clamps onto the pedistal bar.  The chart plotter sits right behind the compass.  I'm not that happy with my selection of the chartplotter though.  In dirct sunlight it is hard to see the maps.  Edson is the name of the mount.  They also do the pedestal and various accessories.

Hi,  I'm not an expert but I don't think you should have to be topping your batteries all the time.  I also run my fridge constantly during the summer.  I always have my shore power connected and charging at the dock also.  I don't have to top the batteries but once a year.   Al

Hi,,,I have the same problem but I always thought it was just cavitation during the turn under power.  I have a three bladed prop so it might even be worse than a two bladed.

Hi Ken, The unit is Model WS-112.  It came out in December of 2001.  I saw it at the Newport Boat Show but it was only a demo model.  I have it running at home and it seems to update the wind/speed around 5-8 seconds.  I'm a cruiser so this would still be fine for me.  They have a web site at Any other questions I'll be glad to try and answer.

Main Message Board / Mast Head Plate

I needed to know the thickness so that the threaded bolt won't go to far into the mast and foul a line.

Hi, I'm going to try out the new wireless wind/speed indicator by speedtech this season.  I know I'll have to drill and tap some holes in the top plate of the mast for mounting.  Does anyone know the thickness of that top plate? :confused:

If I remember correctly,,if the wind is over my port rail, I had no sails up and my wheel was hard over to stbd.  She just about stood still in one spot for as long as the wind stayed the same.

Main Message Board / REFRIGERATION

Hi Peter,  Yes, the way I see it the fridge is on the DC side of the panel so the DC switch must be on as well as the battery switch.  The charger will replace what's lost on the batteries.  You can run on just batteries while your out, but it will drain them if your not careful.   Al

Main Message Board / backing up

Hi Bill, I too had a problem backing up with my three blade fixed. I found some helpful advice on this website and back up with no problem at all now.  I was taught to come to a complete stop, then give it a good shot in reverse for a couple of seconds then let off.  You then are going in reverse and can straighten out a bit.  Then give it another shot and let off.  You'll find out that you can back up fairly straight this way.

Hi Charlie,  Yes, we winterized everything.  It worked fine since the beginning of April.  Then something mysterious happened!

Main Message Board / JABSCO HEAD PUMP
« on: May 01, 2001, 07:23:34 AM »
I recently cracked the pump cylinder on my jabsco head pump.  I was on the jabsco web site for parts information and left a message on their server.  Keith from jabsco e-mailed me back the next day to say they were sending a new pump cylinder free of charge.  Good service, quick response, totally unexpected.  Now if I can figure out was caused it to crack?  Maybe someone pumped on the wet side without the seacock open? :rolleyes:

Hi Peter,  We have the Edson steering wheel holder on our stbd rail.  It works great!  We bought the quick spin off for the wheel lock on the pedestal also.  Good quality products.

I talked to the yard manager at Eastern Yacht Sales.  He said Promariner has a lifetime warranty on their chargers and that I would have a new one in a week.  I hold them liable for damages to the batteries.  I'll have to keep a close watch on them for now on...thanks for all the info....Al

Hi,,,I have a pro-mariner battery charger, 30 amp in my mkii 2000 34'.  It doesn't seem to be charging and I didn't recieve any info with the boat on it.  Does anyone have a web site or info on this model?  Is there a fuse link I should be checking?
