    Passionata

    Hello: I purchased my first boat (I'm now on number 3) in 1995. It was a Hunter Cherubini 27 and it was a wonderful boat. Long story short, I traded her in in 2002 for a H295 (which I now regret). I believe the gentleman who purchased the boat sailed on Lake Superior. I just wondered if...

    Freshwater Pump Issues

    Last Autumn, I winterized my water system by bypassing the water heater and running a couple of gallons of antifreeze through all of the outlets (faucets). Today, I drained the antifreeze, recommissioned the water heater, and filled up the water tank. Although the pump seems to be working, I...

    Fridge Issues

    Every year, at layup, I take the fridge door off, so the compartment gets plenty of air. This year, when I put it back on, I noticed that the door doesn't sit flush to the compartment. I wondered why I was getting mildew on the sides of the compartment (in the corner where the door opens) and...

    Question re: Sea Hawk marine paints...

    I have a customer up here (I work in the paint&coatings industry) who says that Sea Hawk is introducing a knock off to VC17 (they are the Sea Hawk distributer for the Great Lakes). He is willing to give me the paint if they could use the boat for promotional purposes. My question is, is anyone...

    Question for Great Lakes Sailors

    I finally uncovered the boat, and put the batteries back in. I'm planning on launching May 4. The only two major things I need to do before I splash are paint the bottom, and wax. My boat is 4 years old, and since we purchased her, I've been applying VC17. This season, the bottom looks...

    Universal Westerbeke M25XPB

    Just wondered if anyone has had any wiring issues with the M25XPB. I have a 2005 C310, and I'm having problems starting the boat. When I play with the bank of wires on the port side of the boat (the hard to reach area, of course), everything works fine. I've found no shorts. I'm guessing...

    Ever get the feeling of being left out?

    I just recieved my Mainsheet for Feb '07, and, though I know it's not a BIG deal, I noticed no sections devoted to C-310...it goes from C-320 to C309. Everyone is so stoked about the new 309 that, I guess, the 310 got lost in the mix...I'd still take my 310 over the 309 for SEVERAL reasons. Oh...

    Yanmar 2 GM mystery wires...

    I have a Yanmar 2GM that operates fairly well. Recently, after inspecting the port side of the engine (near the air intake), I noticed a couple of wires hanging that don't seem to go anywhere. I am guessing that they are some kind of add-on option thing. My question is, I would like to...

    Autopilot woes...HELP!

    I have a Raymarine ST 4000, and the thing has never really worked all that well. Recently, I tried to recalibrate by the owners manual. Unfortunately, the recal display never came up, and now all the thing does (even when NOT engaged) is make this high pitched squeel. I have to shut...
