Contact Vince Skakunas, American Tank, San Diego, amtanks@sbcglobal.net. He replaced the tanks on my 1983 42' Motoryacht for about $18,000 in 2007. Did a great job, about 3 days. I was very pleased.

Wax & Buff

Our 1983 42' Motoryacht is for sale at NW Explorations dock in Bellingham. They say "To do a full wax and buff on the house and hull will run $2500-3000." This seems high to us. Comments, suggestions? Marin do you know someone?

Terminal Protection

Boat surveyor has recommended terminal protection on both starter motors and alternators. Can anyone provide specific source and part numbers for these items? I realize these are merely plastic/vinyl boots that go over the terminals but don't know otherwise how to specify them for Google search.

Wide Open Throttle

Please explain the logic - if I can run my Lehmans all day at 1800 RPM, why do I care if they overheat at WOT? Certainly, unless replaced periodically, the heat exchangers will load up naturally and, in time, go bad whether at WOT or not. The rubber of the pump impeller certainly won't like the incr...

After 32 years of stewardship we are saddened by the need to part with MEI LEE due to our advancing age. This one owner twin Lehman Motoryacht model is in Olympia, WA.

Wide Open Throttle

How many of you subscribe to the need to run your Ford-Lehmans at higher than normal RPM or Wide Open Throttle from time to time in order to "blow out the carbon" or do you prefer to limit RPM to that which generates hull speed?

swim grid boarding solutions

I tie stopper knots about every 18" or so in a 5/8 braided line which is secured to the transom railing and draped over the transom to the swim platform. Grabbing this line makes it much easier and more stable to egress the dinghy. Cheap and effective.

Window Gasket

Anyone have a source for the rubber gasket material that snaps in around the window frame as shown in the photo? Had to replace glass and old rubber is rather brittle from age.
