    Opinions on Nicro solar vent fans?

    I spoke to a Marinco rep this past summer about this unit; I was told the rebuild kit is no longer available. To Chimera64180, the "guts" of the unit are accessed by removing the small screws around the perimeter of the solar cell, then carefully prying the solar off with a small screwdriver...

    Flushing the fresh water system and draining the porta potty today. Hoping for one last sail on Sunday and then it's time to put the Merry to bed for the winter. Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Bulging Bilge

    On our boat, a Morgan 28 OI, the outward-facing hull-to-deck joint was the main culprit... How is the deck joined to the hull on the Pearson ?

    Hour Meter on Volvo MD2020

    I replaced my old mechanical hour meter with an electronic one from Amazon about 15 bucks. I hooked it up to 12 volts and let it run for a few weeks until the hours closely matched to the old one. You could do the same with yours

    Flickering House Lights

    I bet you'll be removing the prop and shaft and use a puller or cut the cutlass bearing lengthwise. It looks like the bearing is the 1st step up from the prop shaft.

    Transmision replacememt
