Main Message Board / Head ideas, anyone?
« on: February 11, 2022, 11:15:56 AM »
When I was in Scouts, away at camp in the wilds of Wisconsin 50 some years ago, one of the leaders was a former Navy man. He ďpromotedĒ one of the scouts to be captain of the head. The leader and the scoutís dad saw great humor in that. The scout was quite proud of his promotion, until he wasnít.

Fast forward to today and it seems Iíve been ďpromotedĒ too.

Seaclusion has all the original head bits except that a PO has glassed over discharge thru hull and disconnected the fill hose from the head and the discharge line from the tank/macerator. Vent line and pump out are still intact.

There is a 1.5 in line that goes from the head to a thru hull via a anti siphon loop in the locker just aft of the nab station. Direct discharge. Yuck.

Iíd like (need) to bring the boat into compliance. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. By the way, if anyone can think of a way without needing a new thru hull that would be awesome!

Main Message Board / Reef line size?
« on: November 30, 2021, 10:51:48 AM »
Iím sure this has been discussed but Iíve not found the answer so any help would be appreciated. My boat, Seaclusion, hull number 364, standard mast, has the original jiffy reef slab setup. The owners manual says the reef lines should be 3/8ths line. That seems heavier than necessary. I was wondering what the general consensus is. Thanks for your input.

Main Message Board / In mast furling
« on: April 18, 2021, 04:18:36 PM »
Has anyone changed from the original mast to a roller furler? Suereal has the original mast from 1986/87. If anyone has any input Iíd appreciate it. Iím curious what others have done with whom and the cost, financially, physically and emotionally. Thanks.

Main Message Board / Engine Mounts
« on: October 19, 2020, 02:55:29 PM »
I'm replacing my engine mounts on Seaclusion, C-34 MK1, Hull # 364 and have 2 questions:

1. For those of you in the know, should i go to Catalina Direct and order or is there another brand/manufacturer that you'd recommend.

2. I've found one of the (I assume) lag bolts that holds the mount to the stringer in the engine compartment to be broken off. I assume I'm going to have to pull the engine out of the way to be able to access the remainder of the bolt and use an "easyout" or some such to extract it. Less fun than just lifting it a bit.

I apologize ahead of time for the questions, but I have read 101 and gotten some great info also read the the Wiki info (that is not working right now, btw) and other posts, some of which are fairly old (one was by a J. Slocum) So I was wondering if there's been any new developments that would be helpful.


Main Message Board / Replacing Dead lights
« on: September 15, 2020, 10:05:12 AM »
I've read through the site and Tech Wiki and wold still appreciate some insight from those saltier than I. The dead lights on Seaclusion Ď87 C34 hull # 364 need to be replaced. Don Casey makes this sound like a straight forward DIY. My Questions are: Does anyone know the thickness of the plexiglass? (Iíd measure myself but Iím in the US and the boatís in MX). I assume that it's 1/4 inch but verification would be awesome! Has anyone cut their own plexiglass and is it straight forward? Also, has anyone used 3M VHB 5952 tape to attach the plexi? It would be a screwless  installation. Thanks.
