Re: Blinds dress up the interior

Hervey:

Margaret took dark blue canvas and cut it into the triangular shapes that were needed, then I installed three snaps in the corner to easily mount them.

Re: Blinds dress up the interior

Don: They are made of real wood and they come with retainers for the bottom rail that can be clipped in to keep them from rattling or swinging. We used these on the 2 inch blinds, but just pull the 1 inch blinds up if we are cruising in choppy water.

Re: Mast support pole 1990 GB 36 Classic

You could just make a cradle using an 8 foot 2x4 with a one foot piece as a base. Tie line stabilerizers to port and starboard cleats. Fast remedy while you decide. Cut a v onto the top of the cradle.

Higher temperature in port engine

[attachment=0]082619.jpg[/attachment]:wink: Our 36 classic has twin Cummins 6bt engines with about 3600 hours. The port engine runs significantly hotter and I am worried about doing damage. I changed the impellers even though they were not damaged and the Sea strainers were cleaned. Anyone have any ...

Is the Awleood similar to Bristol? 2 part? Pot life?

Blinds dress up the interior

The old curtains just didn't cut it anymore, so we went to Blinds.com and replaced all the window treatments except for the slanted glass windows on the aft part of the cabin top. This is a very easy installation: You discard the valance and the mounting hardware, but drill two small quarter inch ho...

PLASTEAK flying bridge

After years of sanding and varnishing the teak trim that covers the flying bridge attachment screws, I finally came up with a solution that involved removing all the old teak and the blue tape I used to cover the sanding spots between the teak pieces. The top portion of the teak came off fairly easy...

Re: Interior water condensation or leak?

One other thought: Do you do long cruising with all the windows closed and both engine blowers on?

Re: Where is the likely place for fuel leaks?

The leak is not in the drip pan. Today I will replace all the genset filters and check those fuel lines.

Where is the likely place for fuel leaks?

I've been watching the fuel tank posts, but I am hoping someone can give me more direction: We find fuel in our bilge, but only after the engine is running. When the boat was in storage on the hard, nothing accumulated anywhere. I suspect it is the single starboard tank, since sometime in the past t...

Re: Removing flying bridge teak toe rails

It is finally off. The top was removed fairly easily, but the bottom thirty-year old dried teak broke in at least seven places. No chance on saving any of this.

painting the surface between the toe rails.

[attachment=0]GB.jpg[/attachment] After years of sanding our 1990 36 Classic, we finally have to replace the toe rails on the flying bridge. I'm almost done removing them and the top trim came off fairly easily while the bottom quarter round trim is a bear because of the butyl tape or silicone they ...
