    2 inch sanitation hose

    The deck fittings are 2” Amiot, which I will replace with 1.5” Amiot. The hole cutout dimensions (and screw hole I think) are the same. You book has been very helpful! But I have some (more) non standard things going on, so I’ll send you that PM to see what you think about what I’m trying to do...

    2 inch sanitation hose

    Yes! That is the plan, on one side anyway. I was able to replace one of the 2" Forespar 93 series valves with a 1.5" valve, but on the other side I can't disassemble the valve because of restricted space, So I will just use a short piece of the Headhunter and then a reducer and the saniflex. I...

    2 inch sanitation hose

    Thank you Peggie. It looks like I can get it by the foot at Fisheries Supply. Fortunately I don’t need much at $27.81 a foot!

    Drop-in Lithium batteries

    Then again, there's this https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/28718/multiplus-temp-sense-voltage-requirements.html Looks like you could use a 5V relay to disable the Multiplus charging. The Venus GX has a 5V DC output which you could run through a temperature relay which the BMV 712...

    Drop-in Lithium batteries

    Well, I was referencing this thread on victron community: https://community.victronenergy.com/questions/38030/lifepo4-low-temperature-protection.html but there are others which seem to indicate the multiplus LFP profile does not cut off charging at 5C. And it doesn't appear that there is a...

    Drop-in Lithium batteries

    Look at the Victron products. I know their SmartSolar controllers and Multiplus devices have a configurable low temperature charging cutoff. Also Lithionics can be specified with an internal heater.

    Repairing Hunter 40 damage from Hurricane Matthew

    Very nice, your boat deserves the best! I ordered one of the custom panels and I feel BlueSeas really does a good job with communication and making sure you get what you need. (I never flew the Guppy, but since you took 727, I'll take 73... :))

    Have you looked at the 360 panels with rocker switches? They can be AC or DC. https://panelwizard.bluesea.com/

    automatic steering hunter 23.5

    I think if you can determine the thickness and width of the aluminum bracket you could get some bar stock from cut2sizemetals.com and the bend it to your needs.

    Replacing a vinyl name

    Are all gas sources Ethanol free in Summer

    BoatUS had an article on this recently. Big bucks if you mistakenly put E15 in a marine engine as it will likely damage it. Also if you have an older car (pre 2007, or possibly at late as 2012) do some research on your particular engine and be careful.

    Battery Switch Wiring

    Maybe. If the only battery connection to the DC negative bus is on battery #1 and you disconnect that it will depower the entire DC system. How many cables are (were) on the negative post of battery #1?

    Firefly batteries and the rest of the charging system

    After thinking about it, how about going for a 150 amp Balmar with a serpentine belt, and leaving the shore charger alone? You will typically be deep cycling on the hook, so why upgrade both the shore charger and alternator when I think it would be about the same cost to just go big on the...

    Firefly batteries and the rest of the charging system

    Since you will have to run the engine about every other day to charge the batteries when you’re out on the hook, I’d look into upgrading the alternator to reduce engine run time and make more efficient use of the diesel. Maybe a CMI-80 with external regulation. As far as the shore charger...
