    Stopping Leaks with the Magic of Butyl Tape

    I love Butyl Tape! I had to re-bed a leaky chain plate and I've not had any leaks in the 3 years since I did it.

    C310 IA Web Page link to the Forum is Broken

    Before someone else points it out to me, I do know that the link to this forum from the C310IA web site is now broken with the change-over to the new forums. I'll get it fixed, it is just a bit of a hassle to change anything on the Association web page because I don't have direct access to the...

    USB at the Helm

    When I had the original VHF replaced with an AIS-Receive GPS-built-in VHF, it required a new Remote Mic cable from the Nav station to the helm. At the same time as I was having that installed, I asked the guy to also install a two-port USB charger for the exact same reason you are asking - I...

    I have found that my flap is only about 50% effective - the force of the water seems to open and close it so I get a pulsating fountain when I pull the speedo, at least until I can get the plug in place.

    I have room for about a quarter turn before I have to reposition them. They are 2", which is what fits mine well (hull #48). Not sure if there were different sizes at different times.

    I may be at the point where I need to replace the packing. Last season I had a drip every 30 seconds or so at rest but I just launched and I am having a drip every 10-15 seconds at rest. Last year I did purchase two wrenches specifically for adjusting the gland nut...

    Things like iPads and iPhones can go into a night mode where the blue light is lessened. Not sure about built-in touch screens. My Navionics app doesn't seem to have a separate night-mode, which is odd because Waze and other car navigation apps certainly do.

    Catalina 310 Mattress Replacement

    Originally I was just using King Sheets from Target for both berths, but they were cheap and my wife and kids hated them and never wanted to sleep on the boat because of the poor quality. So I bit the bullet and ordered them from Catalina. They were quite expensive, but the family loves them...

    Are those PDF files open or password protected? I know the most recent editions are password protected. You can download, but you can’t open without the password.

    Technical Data

    I have not posted anything recent (actually haven't posted anything since taking over as Sec/Tres) because I have this vague memory of the previous office holder telling me that the Mainsheet folks didn't want us posting for free Mainsheet copyrighted material that people's association dues pay...

    Hull Number 211 used to belong to the former Secretary / Treasurer of the C310 IA (my predecessor), Mark Zabawa. When he sold Too Impulsive and purchased a Hunter back in 2014 he left his position (and the organization).
