Re: wrong rear main seal

Re: Cabin wall insulation

is that the aft deck? i believe the 'lexan' that you are talking about is the 'weather skirting' (it dresses the area around the railings) that is used to semi enclose the aft deck of flush deck motor yachts. I see, I still want to insulate it, if you have any tips. Cheers. Arron is right, there us...

WOW, that boat is clean! It's a shame the engine room is not on the same level as the rest of the boat.

They will make a decision on moving day about disassembling fly bridge and they will do that if it needs to be done. There is no question that the bridge will have to ...

It is kind of a long triangle made of aluminum and looks like it ties everything together. It's hard to tell from your photo but it looks like you have one too, but is not secured...
