You can change the tracks without removing the frames... Just remove the glass and then the felt.

I also have a 1990 46 cl and live right outside of Philly.

I'm just about to undertake having the windows sanded and painted

I am going to tackle the same project. But my thoughts were to add it to the bow. A side deck connection seems like you would be tripping on the hose all the time. I was going to run the hose thru the rope locker and back to my water pump. My old boat had this configuration and it worked great. It a...

I have a1990 46 cl. I removed the washer and dryer and replaced both. It's easy. All you have to do is unscrew all the trim holding the dryer in and remove the sliding door and then it slides right out. Make sure you clean the vent hose and outlet from the dryer. Mine was filled with an incredible a...

i fixed this on shanti... i bought a 4x8 sheet of real, unfinished teak veneer on ebay. ( less than 100.00). it was then as simple as cutting the veneer to size with a razor knife, adhering it with epoxy and then varnishing it to match. it was easy, cheap and you can never tell it wasnt original.

I did something similar but I took a metal yard stick and spray painted it white. I know my tanks are 7 gallons per inch so I relabeled the yardstick with a gallon measurement every inch. 36 inches was full = 300 gallons.. 35 inches was 297g... 34 inches was 294 and so on. If u get a metal yardstick...

The bottom of the pressure cap is covered in a mud/slime. I have flushed and changed the coolant and cooling system 3 times as well as replaced the he...
