    Remote Control for Cruiseair units

    Hi - someone I met on the docks last week told me that he had set up his cruiseair units for remote control, through wifi to his home. Anyone tied this ? Cruiseair has a remote, but told me that it could not be done It would be so good to be able to turn it on and off (we are 3 hours away)...

    Suggestion for drain hole in anchor locker

    Hi all - really cleaned out my anchor chain locker this weekend and found this disturbing sight on my 2002 Hunter 41- the upper drain hole has a stainless steel vent on the outside - but the hole exposes the core. Doesn't get that wet that often, but exposed core scares me. Don't know if a...

    LED Anchor Light RF Interference

    I did - they were as helpful as could be, but we could not solve the problem. Since I went through a rigger (and really really paid) he replaced the parts for free, but really charged on labor.....again....time to suck it up and learn not to be afraid to work at the op of a 64 foot mast...

    LED Anchor Light RF Interference

    Tested it at night when the light was on (on a photo switch) and was even worse. Gave up - and the rigger charged me again to put a halogen fixture back up, - so two years and 1400$ later - back to where I was. My advice - don't put one of these things on - and if you do, keep the rigger...

    Hunter 41 dinette table doesn't lower enough for a berth

    Well - tried everything - you can't set the poles lower into the floor, can't cut the poles because the gas cylinder inside won't fit and you cant adjust the cylinder - so - guess it's on to another project

    41 Deck Salon Dinette table lowering

    really good idea on the thinner cushion. I tried lowering with the seat parts up - still didn;t go down far enough,. Looked carefully at the posts and below them - no way to adjust - would need to be cut at a machine shop. Not too hard to remove them and put them back in

    Dingy Davit Horizontle Stabilizer

    Really good point on the 9.9 It's almost brand new - maybe I can get a reasonable price for it - was thinking about getting rid of the AL-10 for a lighter dingy, maybe with an inflatable floor and a much smaller outboard

    Dingy Davit Horizontle Stabilizer

    Thanks guys - will try leaving it on see how it goes I think the davits are rated at about 300 lbs or so each - so should be able to handle it, as long as I'm not sitting in it (joke)

    Dingy Davit Horizontle Stabilizer

    Hi - Thanks for the inputs - gave it a shot this weekend - and seems ok. Pics attached and thanks for all the help - only problem I have is that the outboard is mounted onto the stern rails and prevents the dingy coming up all the way. So I either have to keep that heavy Yamaha 9.9 (on the...

    Dingy Davit Horizontle Stabilizer

    Hi all - I am going to brave putting this together for my Kato Marine Davits on my Hunter 41. It will carry an AB AL aluminum bottom dingy and maybe, just maybe a Yamaha 9.9 outboard The question is, how far apart from each other should each of the Davit arms bet be fixed? I read that the...

    Solar Trickle Charger

    My system is strange - I have a dedicated starter battery for the genset, which is not connected to anything except an on-off switch. If I don;t use the genset, the battery eventually discharges. I was thinking to get a small solar trickle charger - rather than install one into the existing...
