    Tank Monitor Installations

    I am contemplating an cleanout access in my fuel tank and have been looking at these access plates: https://diesel-fuels.com/fuel-tank-access/ If you watch the short video in the left margin, it demonstrates the way the system seals. I would think you could fabricate a backing plate similar...

    Hunter 33 rudder split

    Are you able to drop the rudder far enough to expose the top of the rudder itself? The area at the top of the rudder where the post enters is a prime area for water ingress. It wouldn't hurt to grind out a small valley there and fill with Sikaflex or other sealant. On our boats we also had...

    320 wireless wind sensor

    You'll get much better performance if the bluetooth interface is in the open. I suspect you may not get reception at all if you mounted it below.

    Hunter 33 rudder split

    On our last two boats the rudders had significant moisture inside. On the first boat I removed the fiberglass skin from a large section of one side and vacuum bagged the rudder to dry out the foam core. On our current boat the moisture was so bad and had frozen to the point the rudder was badly...

    Sta-lok question

    To wrap up this thread - I had reached out to Sta-Lok through their web contact form just prior to posting here, inquiring about the two part numbers and asking if the current wedges will work in either part. Not really expecting a timely response from them, I was pleasantly surprised to find...

    Sta-lok question

    I had not seen the chart you posted but reading this chart it looks as if the convention is "1" prefix is fraction size only where the "0" prefix is mm or mm/fraction.

    Sta-lok question

    Thank you guys - I think you are correct, but I haven't seen 133-08 in any Sta-Lok literature - maybe this is old stock...

    Sta-lok question

    Looking to add a backstay tensioner and as I am looking at Sta-lok fittings I'm finding both 133-08-5/8 and 033-08-5/8 listed, both of which appear to be what I need, but I can't find anything that specifies the difference between the 033 and the 133. Anyone have that information?

    It was quite a while ago, but that does sound familiar.

    Universal valve adjustment

    I adjusted the valves on our M50 yesterday and I guess I should have had this higher on the priority list of maintenance items! We've had the boat for 1 1/2 seasons and still have a number of projects to catch up on. I used a go/no go feeler gauge for the first time and it made this job really easy.

    Question about eye splice

    I use an eye in the working end with soft shackle attachment, and a reeving eye (no core) in the other end so I can attach a smaller sacrificial halyard for the winter. It does eliminate the possibility of flipping end for end though.

    I believe the West Marine branded anti-freeze is manufactured by Starbrite.

    Balmar SG200 Problem

    I too had to reapply the chemistries. My state of health still fluctuates as well but I am much less concerned about that than I am the state of charge generally.

    Balmar SG200 Problem

    Around the middle of this summer I again reached out to Balmar to tell them I was done trying to get the SG200 to work and that I would appreciate my money back due to the hours of time invested over a year and half, and repeated promises that the next update would solve the ongoing problem. I...

    West Marine antifreeze

    Don you've said that a couple of times now, and I would be inclined to agree but for the fact the antifreeze in the exhaust discharge reads exactly the same as the fresh antifreeze still in the jug.
