General Discussion / Hurricane Florence ~
« on: September 16, 2018, 10:08:26 AM »
I was watching the "Sunday Morning" show about the aftereffects of Hurricane Florence. They showed a shot of a sailboat high and dry amid debris from what looks like a fallen house. I recognized the lines as a CSY Walkover. I'll try to load a pic. My heart goes out to the owner. Hopefully the boat can be salvaged. From the looks of it, very likely. If any boat can be brought back, it's the CSY!

I found this ad on the cruisersforum. Might be a good fit for someone lurking here... Don't know anything about her but she looks like a keeper!

Saw this boat on ebay, don't know anything about it but may be the boat for somebody looking...

I have always procrastinated changing of my secondary fuel filter on my Perkins 4.236 because of the mess of changing a cartridge style filter and then having to bleed the lines to get it started again.  I've changed the primary very often and put off changing the secondary. I wanted to find a way to change from a cartridge to a spin-on type to make it easier and cleaner and found 2 ways to go; a replacement filter head from Foley Engines that was over $200 and an adapter that uses the existing filter head for less than $70 from Fuel Filter Adapter Kit with Filter for Perkins 3.152 Motor - SKU: BW1296-K. This is made for the Perkins 3.152 motor but I confirmed the same size for my 4.236. Not sure if this will work for the more popular 4.154. My 4.236 used the filter #26561117 from Perkins which may be what other motors use and if so, should also be a candidate for a change.
I finished the install yesterday and ran her for 20 minutes without any issues. I did still have to perform a quick bleed of the system but didn't take more than a few minutes. I won't hesitate to change this easy spin-on filter (Napa Gold 3195) in the future, a lot easier and cleaner than the old way. One thing I will change in the future is the steel bolt that holds it on the head, changing to a stainless bolt at next filter change.

Engines and Drive Train / Prop shaft pulled?
« on: January 01, 2017, 05:22:57 PM »
Anyone ever pulled the prop shaft on a straight drive in a 44? I'm thinking of checking my 1 1/2" shaft for any bend as well as replacing the cutlass bearing and testing the prop while I'm in the yard. Ideas? Cautions? Tips and tricks?
Thanks and Happy New Year to All!

Interior / Removing bronze portlight interior oval ring?
« on: February 04, 2016, 02:10:33 PM »
Anyone tried to do this? I'm thinking of updating/improving the oak interior panel on the aft bulkhead in my cabin. I removed the nuts and tried to gently pry off the oval ring but it had a lot of resistance. Were these installed with a sealant? Any information would is much appreciated, especially from someone who has done this.

Just came across this ad on craigslist:

Hull and Rig / Tides Marine "Strong Track"

Got tired of struggling with raising and lowering the main, especially in a building breeze. Just added the luff system to my mast. What a difference! Looked at these for years with lots of research and called Mack Sails to make it happen. Highly recommend.

Swap Meet / CSY Pilothouse on Craigslist
« on: July 21, 2015, 06:13:44 PM »
Found this on craigslist. Don't know anything about it but might be worth looking at.

I'm feeling torn about the possible sale of my CSY. I do love this boat, more than any other I've owned and it is because of this that I feel she should be used as she was intended, off and about as opposed to limited here without much use. I'm at least 5 years away from using her as I'd like as a full time cruiser so I'm torn.  I thought I'd throw this out there to see if anyone was ready to go and in the market for a well equipped walkthrough. Not sure of a price yet but thought I'd at least put this on our site. Of course, I can easily change my mind....

General Discussion / Trip Harrison painting

This is a print by Tripp Harrison named "Heading Out" that I have. Anyone know if the CSY 44 is the inspiration for the boat in the painting? I think so...
