Re: WEBASTO AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM

Re: What to do about old fuel in tank???

when I bought my boat it had 160 gallons of 5 yr old gas, ran the boat it ran great! just added some treatment, on another note do you have twin tanks? If you do switch back and forth between tanks to ensure both have acceptable fuel, then run one tank pretty much dry, change water separators (alway...

Re: launching woes

....water sprayed out from between the engine and the drive.... Do you mean the bellhousing? Suspect one or both frost plugs at back of block. Yes I meant bellhousing, I am not aware of frost plugs at back of block, but I pray you are correct, I have a few engines in my shop and will have a look in...

Re: Transport An F30 Convertible

Any pics would help. I'm convinced the bridge has to come off. The least amount of hieght with the top rail off is about 12'9" with props and rudders off, plus trailer height. trailer = no height as the hydraulic lowers to what you need, with rudders on and top rail off with room for suspension is ...

Re: Transport An F30 Convertible

Well I have experience with moving my 1976 36 ft tri fly, which I would think is larger or equal to the 30' you are speaking of. All I had to do was remove the window and railings off the flybridge as well as the rails for the canvas, IMPORTANT NOTE when you take the canvas poles down, number them a...

launching woes

the radio thing sounds like a crossed wire, for one thing try your emergency start button, it is on the lower helm dash area it will be a push button, when you push it you should hear a click as the solonid switches, this will in essence marry your two batteries. While holding the button down turn t...

Re: F36 Tri Cabin - Electrical Issues

hot cable = poor connection, you can either swap the suspect ground cable for a new one or borrow one off your genset, but first clean the connections at each end. are you sure you have connected your batteries correctly? I would actually separate the two batteries aat the mutual ground and your eme...
