MarineAir/Cruisair Turbo Series

I installed a MarineAir Vector Turbo Series (16k) last month. The same unit is called Stowaway Turbo Series by Cruisair. The unit is remarkably small and unbelievably quiet. Installation was easy. The sound shield option encloses the compressor for silence. After installing I couldn't hear the compr...

I've replaced my 60w engine room lifts with LED strips, and added two more. Nice and bright and draws less than the original set-up.

You are fortunate you identified he issue before it became a real problem.

I applied two coats of Interlux ACT over the weekend. Hope to get her back in the water this week. Year-round in the water in Florida requires an annual application along with monthly cleaning.

Insurance -Survey

I went through this a few weeks ago. United Marine Underwriters allowed me to get an in-water survey for a liability-only policy required by the marina. The policy premium is $326/yr.

I also do not use the water for consumption. I do use it for washing and showering, once the stench was gone. When I first got the boat I r...

Engine Room Cleaning

Previous owner left me with an engine room that hasn't been cleaned in years. Any ideas on cleaning her up would be greatly appreciated. Is pressure washing a viable alternative? Do I risk water damage to the 671's?
