Systems / Re: Cleaning water tanks
« Last post by svsurprise on November 06, 2018, 07:03:47 AM »
In a haste to get the boat ready for the trip south I answered my own question.  After removing the inspection port I poured in a large quantity of bleach (1/8 cup to 10 gals), filled both tanks with water, and let them soak for two+ hours.  I also opened all the faucets and ran them until I could detect the smell of chlorine.  I then scrubbed the small amount of algae and bio slime off with a deck brush.  The brush gave me access equivalent to what the pressure washer would have provided, maybe a bit more.  The system was drained and all the sediment in the bottom of the tanks was vacuumed out. The system was then flushed with copious amounts of fresh water, all the filters were replaced, and the inspection ports replaced. 

Heading to the Bahamas this weekend.  I hope to see some of you there.

Systems / Cleaning water tanks
« Last post by svsurprise on November 02, 2018, 08:34:37 PM »
Has anyone with a 44 w/o cleaned out their water tanks and if so, how did you do it?  The inspection ports are fairly easy to remove but I'm not sure if a pressure washer wand will get in there or whether a brush is a better method.  At this point I don't know what the condition of the tanks is but having a bad experience with fouled tanks on another boat many years ago has me thinking about cleaning them out before heading south next week.

Many thanks in advance for any input.

Fellow CSY owners and aficionados: “The time has come. After 26 years of successful ownership, we are searching for a discriminating buyer for our cruising sailboat. This well-designed, strongly-built, versatile blue-water cruising boat is ready to go. Note that SIESTA is not a “project” boat. This  vessel has been professionally maintained. It has received many upgrades to make it an even safer, easier-to-operate, more comfortable cruising platform. With a single mast and three roller-furling sails, its versatile cutter sail plan offers safety, flexibility and ease of operation, all from inside the center cockpit. Note the date of the upgrades for much of its new, state-of-the-art equipment. And yet, the platform is a very well-built hull and deck that will perform well for many years to come. SIESTA will continue to maintain its value. A comparable boat, of the same rugged construction and quality, properly equipped, costs hundreds of thousand of dollars more. The CSY brand is sought after by knowledgeable, discriminating cruisers all over the world. I am sure you will check out the CSY brand and compare CSY boats with others of the same class. Your research will confirm what we are saying here: this boat is a rare find.”

Hello All,

I have the cockpit cooler from my 44 that I will not be using. It is out of the boat and in good shape.
 If anyone is interested it is yours for the asking.
Interior / Salon Table

I have purchased a CSY 33, but the previous owner removed the salon table.  I would like to make a new one exactly as was put in at the factory.  I would appreciate any photos, plans, advice with regard to the salon table in a CSY 33.  How was it attached to the deck in the salon?  tnx

Thanks again
