    Goodbye, Farewell and Amen

    Hello all. It has been a long time since I have been on. My son is a hockey player and 2 seasons ago he reached an age level where practice starts in May and the season starts in August so the past few summers have been spent in rinks and Anam Cara has been high and dry. As retirement...

    Anyone aware of any US companies, other than JOWI, that make cradles? We recently relocated the boat and the yard we want to take it to requires a cradle. They don't allow home made ones, only manufactured ones that have the backing of engineering. I just want to do some price comparison. Thanks

    Have 4 belts for the M25 with older alternator bracket. 3 are the Dayco and NAPA equivalent to the Universal and the other is slightly smaller but can be used in an emergency. Free to a good home. Can't get on the classifieds through the app. Just PM me if you're interested.

    Furl Tank

    Hello 309 Owners My dock neighbor and friend of over 30 years took delivery of a 2011 309 in June. Today he arrived at the marina to find a strong odor of fuel on the boat and diesel in the bilge. We started to troubleshoot the problem and cannot find access to the fuel tank. Using deductive...

    Anchor Roller

    My dock neighbor is attempting to remove and replace the anchor roller with a longer one. The forward bold came out easily but the aft one spins. Anyone know if it is secured with a nut or is it a screw like the other one? There's no way we can get to the underneath to see. Thanks!

    Annual Video

    It's been an extremely busy past 12 months. Haven't spent a lot of time on here or on my boat while I transitioned into a new assignment that has kept me occupied most of my waking hours. I did, however, manage to gather enough pics and video (had to solicit some) for the annual video. For...

    310 Immortalized

    Don't know how you feel about body art but I wanted to share my latest piece of work. Someone finally took a picture of my boat underway (I'm usually taking all the pics) and I thought it was such a good picture, it needs to be immortalized....well I probably should say "mortalized" since I am...

    This Winter's Project

    This winter I plan on tackling what started out last year being the replacement of the lip seal on my SureSeal dripless shaft seal. What should have be a $30, one hour project has, like most boat projects, turned into something much more! Because of the small area between the SureSeal and the...

    Need backup here

    Friend with Hunter 410 plugs his shoreline in and shortly thereafter he realizes nothing is on and breakers tripped. This is what he finds. I say replace entire wire once the cause is found and fixed. He says if he cuts it back and installs the new shorepower wire and outlet it'll be ok...

    1986 31 Exhaust

    Was helping a friend diagnose the lack of flow from his exhaust today and found that everything works fine up to the exhaust muffler that's built into the boat in the SB cockpit locker. Hoses are clear, pump is pumping. Is this something that is generally cut out and replaced or would you...

    Quick Question- Hurth tranny I have to slide my prop shaft out of the coupling about an inch or two so I can remove an old and install a new SureSeal lip seal for my formerly dripless shaft seal. Will removing the set screws on the coupling suffice or do I need to remove the entire coupling...
