    Cracks, an observation..

    I'll back you up on this one. I've done the same and can say that it works well. Works even better if there's some weight inside the crate

    Convert mini fridge into boat refrigerator -DIY?

    I'm not sure where you're located but another option might be one of those electric coolers. The peltier element could be removed and they usually run on 12v. Cost is slightly lower but it might not work in hot environments. Probably an easy project though.

    Moorage Madness

    In Northern Illinois (Waukegan) slip fees range from 1400-2200 for a 25' At Montrose Harbor in Chicago a slip will run you 3000 for one of the very few 25' slips and 4000 for a 30' slip. I believe customers recieve a power bill at the end of the season. Moorings and floating star docks run...

    If you post a picture we may be able to identify why the butyl isnt working. It's usually much easier to work with than 4200

    Aft A/C Unit Issues

    If you feel comfortable working with electricity I would take the cover off and see if power is present. Sometimes there's an internal fuse inside devices like this. If you have power present I would bypass the thermostat to rule that out. Can you take a pic of the unit including model number?

    There's some folks on this board that are very knowledgeable when it comes to MacGregors. Do you have any pictures?

    Gluing cleats

    Use BedIT or 4200. Most of us will recommend BedIT because it is so much easier to work with and remove in the future. Remove the cleat, countersink the holes from the outside, clean up the hole (I dab BedIT on the hole to collect the dust), wrap the underside of the screw head and about 1/4" of...

    Companionway Acrylic Hatch

    Try Peterson plastics. They're usually cheaper an much more friendly than other suppliers/fabricators in the area. They did not stock super dark tinted polycarbonate when I asked them for a quote. I suppose you could put some automotive tint on it if worse comes to worse. Perhaps there's...

    Companionway Acrylic Hatch

    When you say local suppliers, are you referring to a plastic supply house/fabricator or a marine related supplier? The former is usually much cheaper and prices vary greatly from company to company

    Pressure washer with lake water

    My bilge pump is rated for 360gph/60gpm so in THEORY this should have no issues keeping up with a demand of 2.7gpm. Somehow I dont think this little pump is upto the task. Thoughts?

    Pressure washer with lake water

    I checked it out last night. It's 2.7@2500 PSI. I would be using it on a floating dock so I'm estimating about 1ft above the water. I suppose I could try tossing it in a dingy so it's nearly the same height as the water. Unless I use a pump some air in the line is inevitable. With such a short...

    Pressure washer with lake water

    My pressure washer is rated for somewhere in the range of 2.7 @ 2700PSI. I'm guessing the inlet hose would be 4-6' to get from the water to the pressure washer on the dock. Do pressure washers have self priming pumps?

    Pressure washer with lake water

    I was wondering if anyone has ran their pressure washer off of lake water before? Was an extra pump needed to provide some water pressure or will a short piece of hose suffice?
