    Arch davits / obstructed view

    Hello all So I purchased an arch for my boat that will hold solar panels as well as my dinghy. Need advise on hanging / securing the dinghy so as to get best rear visibility. Do you pull the boat all the way up and secure or leave it a little bit down to be able to see better? Love to see any...

    YANMAR 4JH3TE Slow throttle response when hot

    Question..... how do you know the mixing elbow is not blocked? If it’s based solely on water flow you may want to open up and inspect the exhaust side. My last engine had full water flow however the exhaust side of the elbow was 80% blocked and caused somewhat similar conditions. Just a...

    Don’t ignore above-the-water-line thru hulls!

    Sure you know this but when replacing get the marelon fittings not just the cheap plastic. UV kills the above water line fittings. It’s one of my projects for next year. good luck Greg

    Damaged fin keel bottom. Can yard move blocks?

    If you’re packed in so they have no access I think you have very limited options...... speak with the yard and arraign in the spring for them to move the blocks for you. Mean time get under there and do what you can so they can put the blocks in a place you have repaired. I know my yard would...

    Thru hull external strainer

    I have never had an issue with my engine intake clogging..... however at the end of every season clean all sorts of mussels and barnacles out from inside the strainer. Also as Maine says it’s easy to clean from the inside. On my ac intake it will clog after a couple of days as we are not...

    How to remove the center piece out of the table on a Beneteau 423

    A little smack to get it off the legs may be in order.... flip it over and you will see the "slides". Maybe a quick spray of McLube or another dry lube spray will give alittle help. Enjoy! Greg

    How to remove the center piece out of the table on a Beneteau 423

    Pull the table apart..... it will open. Might be tight if not done in a while. If you are having difficulties lift the table off the legs and work on it. Whole thing comes apart nicely. We keep the middle peice out. Table is plenty big and gives you more room. Greg
