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.

Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback. Iíd seen Andy from Boatworks Today and that looked to be a very clean install. I have also read of others who have used the 3M tape say that it doesnít stay stuck in hot, humid environments. If thatís true itís a definite drawback. Noah, your instal with pictures is most helpful. As I said, the boat is in Mexico and Iím in the States. Accessing parts and materials in Mexico, San Carlos, is a crap shoot. So Iíll like to get as much material and as many supplies while Iím here. I have several projects waiting for me when I get back to Seaclusion so I may be reaching out again. Thanks again for the ideas.

Thanks for the help all itíll really come in handy. I can't wait to be able to return to her and get some work done. KW, I actually did take a look at the WIKI  and found the link: https://c34.org/wiki/index.php?title=Catalina_34 to be missing. Plus, Iíd not heard of anyone using the 3M tape instead of 795 and was wondering why. This site is such a great source of info itís always my first resource. Thanks again.

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.
