    Tohatsu SP (propane) throttle question

    Need to re-seat the big front window on a Hunter 29.5

    I patched a leak in the fixed side ports on our Hunter Vision several years ago. The biggest issue is getting as much caulk old out before redoing it. What have you got to lose If you decide to purchase a new window I would recommend that you have the fabricator drill the holes (do not drill...

    What size Radiator cap ??

    1995 Hunter Vision 36 Holding Tank

    No I do not know about a replacement tank. I think there is a angle on the starboard side of the tank that makes getting a 25-26 gal tank from off the shelf a little more difficult. If you reduce the size by a few gal. then you can probably get a tank from Ronco. Good luck. I would like to...

    1995 Hunter Vision 36 Holding Tank

    The tank on these models were aluminum so it is about time that they get replaced. I think they are about 24-26 gal. I just sold my boat last year but as I remember you will probably need to remove the panel aft of the aft bed. Then you will also need to remove the panel that are in the aft...

    Anyone ever removed the shear stripes on a H31?

    Using a wall paper steamer works well. I have also used the "eraser" but it took a lot more time.

    You may want to check out Alpen Glow lights. They can retrofit some of their technology without major modifications. We had recessed florescent lights. They made replacements with RED leds. I believe that their new stuff can be made with LED's (good quality).

    Self Tending Jib on 28 Oday?

    Self tending jib is a nice enhancement for single handed sailing. You can chose to run it with a boom or not. Take a look at the Harken website. They have some rigging diagrams . If you need a custom track you can probably get one from Garhauer Marine.
