Re: Best water supply lines.

After having run thousands of feet of it in commercial settings, I'm still a fan of pex. Re-plumbed my boat with it using 1/2" crimp rings vs. expansion fittings. Red for hot, blue for cold just because...

Re: 4 x GB Brass berth lights.

Have you looked into having your existing lights chromed at a plating shop?

Re: for the woodies: paying seams

The cotton is there to give rigidity to the hull by keeping the planks from working as the hull flexes underway. When the boat goes back it the water, the planks swell and the cotton crushes into the edges of the planks making everything tight. And yes, the seam compound is there to protect and reta...

Re: Battery Charger Replacement

I have a Samlex charger for the start batteries, and an Aims Power inverter/charger for the house bank. Both work flawlessly.

Re: Flybridge teak replacement

Parry, I've seen three GB 36' with the plates secured, two where the headliners were removed. There may be other GB's out there with a different set up, but in any case it seems to make sense that the hidden part would be secured to avoid having fasteners fall. Plus, an unsecured nut could easily ju...

Re: Flybridge teak replacement

There is usually a threaded backing plate that is secured with screws to hold it in place when the mounting bolts are removed from above.

Re: WABASTO HEATER PROBLEMS

If you took a wave and got sea water in the exhaust, that could cause your symptoms as well due to no draft shut down. Remove the plug at the low spot on the exhaust and see what comes out.

Re: Ford Lehman air filter replacement

K&N RC-4570 is a good fit. 2-7/8" ID, and it's offset so you can vent the crank case into the top of it if you want. I like Bjorn's idea for venting though!

Re: Higher temperature in port engine

Not to confuse things, hopefully, but that port temp looks pretty normal for a 6BT @ 2200 rpm's. If anything, the stbd is running cold. Is your stbd motor plumbed to a hot water heater heat exchanger? You still might benefit from boiling out the exchangers anyway, but see if you can get an IR thermo...
