    Thru Hull Backers

    Simple answer... The backer plate acts like a washer and must distribute the load of Valve Open/Close. Stuck valve, strong hands = Break off the thru hull valve. Look here for better answer... Seacock Backing Plates - Marine How To Jim... PS: King Starboard flexes too much.

    Yes, mine was fairly easy. But it was not "Plug and Play" for my MarineAire 16kBTU. I had to do some adaptions as @SEMPERAVANTI41 noted above, but not quite that bad. It took 3 hours to remove the old unit and put in the new, but I had a free helper.:biggrin: I had to buy one new hose for...

    Water in Cylinders

    The exhaust hole, in level seas, should be ABOVE the water line. Maybe you are storing too much gear or beer in the Aft part of your boat. The Exhaust Below water, presents other issues. From the H33 manual... Jim... PS: I looked a several pictures of H33 on the web and that port is...
