Engines and Drive Train / New Yanmar 4JH80 in my CSY WO
« on: January 28, 2017, 05:04:37 PM »
I just installed a new Yanmar in my CSY. The work was done by Joel Stuart of Stuart Marine in Jacksonville FL. He did a BEAUTIFUL job.

The old engine locked up because the water mixing elbow got a hole in the inner liner and was splashing water back onto the last cylinder. It did not hydrolock but got surface rust that stopped the engine from turning.

Took the boat out the other day and did 8+ knots! We actually passed another boat!

Swap Meet / Perkins Parts need a good home
« on: January 28, 2017, 08:32:30 AM »
I just replaced my Perkins 4.154 with a Yanmar 85Hp. I now have a Perkins that will soon go on the trash pile. If anyone wants it please let me know. I also have LOTS of Perkins spare parts and a couple of water pumps. You can reach me at four 0 four seven 2 nine twenty one hundred.

BTW - The Yanmar was pushing the boat at 8+ knots the other day!

General Discussion / Turning Off Dropbox Sync Temporarily
« on: October 27, 2014, 11:05:55 PM »
The files are now in DropBox.

Ps, how do you turn it off? I will be in the Bahamas for the next few months and would like to turn off DropBox automatic updates.

Underway / Harbornating in the Bahamas
« on: September 24, 2014, 09:45:36 PM »
Gang - I am planning on taking my boat to the SSCA Gam in Melbourne in November of this year and then on to the Bahamas. Anyone else heading this way? I will probably hang around the Abacos (Manjack, Treasure, and Marsh). Yell at me on the curiser's net if you come through. I am on Grace.

BTW - It is called 'wintering' in the islands. Sounds so much better than screwing off.

General Discussion / Vector Art

I have added two vector art files of line drawings of the CSY 44 WO to DropBox. These files can be used for stitching on clothing or CNC work. They are in the 44 folder under Vector art.

General Discussion / CSY 44 WO and WT blueprints
« on: November 05, 2013, 08:10:37 PM »
Gang - As many of you know we have been working for several years to get the original blueprints for the CSY boats in a format that we can put online. Well we now have them. They are in Dropbox in the blueprints folder.

I know that there have been questions about the CSY table diagrams recently. You might want to check in this folder...

Thank Sherry and others for what they have done to make this happen.
