    Seldon headstay attach fitting failure

    Here is an update. Picture of part that failed. It appears to have failed just as they describe in the recall. I wish I would have know I would have had it replaced in st Maarten last year when I replaced the Forestay.

    Seldon headstay attach fitting failure

    I've left a few messages with them. All the parts are Seldon. I'm told my mast will have to be de stepped to repair the heel and base. I just had a rigging inspection 3 months ago, the rigger said everything looked good. Last year I replaced the Forestay and D2s.

    Seldon headstay attach fitting failure

    I have a Bavaria 46 sailboat. We were out sailing yesterday and had a Forestay failure. It turned out to be a part that is listed for recall on a later model boat. It looks exactly like the same part and has a failure at the weld they talk about. We kept the rig vertical but had damage to...

    Windvane steering and an extra rudder

    Hello I am about to do more extended sailing. At first I was going to upgrade my autopilot, but now I am thinking windvane steering. I live in Tampa and just saw that a larger hunter lost it's rudder and was abandoned at sea. I guess it had a plastic rudder post. Anyway a wind vane can...

    pumping out

    I have a through hull for macerater discharge. I cannot find a Y valve I have a hunter 340. I have looked everywhere. Any ideas where it might be, or is it not required. Thanks

    H340 conversion from packing to mechanical seal

    Re: Just did it Hi. I have a 2001 H340, and I am not there to measure. Does anyone know the normal measurement for that boat? I am going down next week and only have a day or so to have the maintenance done so I want to order it now. Thanks

    H340 conversion from packing to mechanical seal

    Hi. I need to change the bellows on my PSS. My boat is out of the water as the KM2P transmission just went out. The boat is currently in the yard and I am not in the area. Does anyone know gland I should order? The mechanic said he would do it but he didn't know which one. Thanks.

    Marine AC

    Hello all I have enjoyed reading this forum. I Have a Marine Air AC. Last month it stopped working with the HHH fault code. I was getting a bottom job so I asked the ship yard to look at the AC as well. They charged me 500 dollars and said it works fine. They hooked it up to a water...

    Hunter 340 battery charger question

    Hello all, I know this is a newbie question but I could not find the answer in my manual or the web. I want to keep the reefer cold for days at the dock on shore power. Since it's DC powered do I need to leave the battery charger on if I am gone for a few days. Thanks

    Hunter 340 leak at compression post

    Thanks for the replies. I will check the wiring in the house in from of the mast. I just hope I don't have to have the mast un stepped. I could not find the any area it could leaks round the base of the mast. I will be out there again Saturday.

    Hunter 340 leak at compression post

    Hello I am new to the group. I just purchased a Hunter 340 2001 model. On my first sail it rained and it leaked around the compression post. It did not turn up on the survey. There also does not appear to be any water damage yet. I am going to get a bottom job next week in Mobile. Is...
