I have been looking for 2 door knob assembly's for my boat.  I called George at Sea Farer marine and he informed that they (the door knob assembles ) are still being made.   This guy has now become my best friend!  And should be everyone else trying to maintain a 40 year old boat.

Hello all,
It's been awhile since I've been on the site but, sometimes that is the way things go.

After a death in the family and a lot of serious thought, I have decided to sell my beloved Walkthrough, "Sea Notes"  She is hull #3 built in 1980.
Here are a couple of pictures.
She is in Marathon Florida at Marathon City Marina on a mooring ball.
If anyone is interested please leave a message here on the site and we will talk.

If it is anything like the max prop, you can kiss prop walk goodby.  But kiss goodby any ability to direct your now new tub anywhere.  It'll go where it wants to and there isn't much you can do about it.   If you have a long long backup, maybe a little directional but I haven't had much luck as of yet going backwards.  My max prop is 24" and set to about 14 or 16"

I have bought about a dozen different wound springs, so far none have worked.  Material not strong enough. Would like to know where CSY bought the bronze springs at.

For those of you interested,  I steered Cory to either Dan or Josh at JSI in Saint Petersburg.  They have a huge data base of sailboat original sail dimentions.  
This is not a plug for a business as I have no interest in their business other than as a dang fine resource for us wind geeks

Engines and Drive Train / Perkins 4-154 tachomoter
« on: August 07, 2014, 10:27:09 pm »
Almost all tachs are driven off of the alternator.  I do not know what alternator you have, but if it worked before you pulled the engine I would say the wire from the tach is either hooked up in the wrong place on the alt or even hooked somewhere it shouldn't be.  Trouble shoot the alt and tach together.  Did you replace the alt with another different kind?  

Systems / Batteries to start motor

Hi Peter,
Don't confuse big loads with instant loads. Even tho your golf cart is going up the hill with a indicated load of 600 amps, it is still considered a slow drawn load.  The starting of a car, especially the newer cars with the starters made with minimally wound commutators, thin wire and small over all size really places a lot on the battery.  And diesels are even worse.
If anyone is interested I have information on a charging circuit for your starter battery that does not neccatate (sp) the running of another set of cables to the starter battery to charge it. This way lets you have the ease of a single battery bank with two sets of batteries.  I got the info from Dave McCampbell.  Anyone who wants it let me know and I'll publish it with pictures.
P.S. But you will need to run wires from the start.battery to the starter , of course.

To all on starting battery's.  CCA is the operative phrase here. It's the cold cranking amps that determine how well your engine starts.  Deep cycle batteries like Trojan and Rolls and others are not rated in CCA and using them to start your engine will seriously degrade their deep cycle function.  Automotive batteries are designed to give very, very fast energy bursts, ie. starting.  Deep cycle batteries are NOT and release their stored energy at a slow consistent rate.  Using your deep cycle batteries to start your engine will really shorten their life.  For those of you who already know this, please excuse my verbosenes.

Just checking in to see if the emblems were done.  As I see, they are.  Any estimate when they will all shipped out?

Interior / Walkthrough Main Cabin Windows

Most likely Sabic plastics or Alro metals,  don't let that throw you, they have a very large plastic division there in Clearwater.

Ok, a quick update on this.   We were down in Shroud Cay in the Exumas 6 weeks ago when a big blow was coming through.  So we tied up to one of the balls there in the park.(nice and well maintained) any wise, we were rocking on the ball from 45 to 45 degrees.  So steep that the swim platform was smacking the water, hard!  As my flap I installed hinged from the top, every time the aft went down the exhaust port went well under water.  I was afraid that enough water would be forced back up the exhust hose it might go on up I to the engine creating all sorts of havoc. So all that said to say that next time the old girl is out on the hard I'm going to install another flapper that is hinged at the bottom.  That way if it goes under the water the bottom flap will close the top one.  And those flaps don't  close anywhere tight so it will not obstruct the exhust water.
