    Effluent Discharge from Holding Tank Vent

    While several kilometres off-shore, I opened the discharge thru-hull and ran the macerator in our '06 H33. After a relatively short period, my wife yelled from the cockpit that there was effluent 'shooting out in sputters' from the holding tank vent. What might have caused this? I would have...

    Leaking from recently installed PYI PSS Shaft Seal

    Several days ago, we had a PYI - PSS shaft seal installed on our 2006 H33. 24 hours after cleaning/drying the bilge once the boat was back in the water, I noticed a accumulation of sea water just below the PSS. Is it normal that, while the carbon and steel rotors are seating, there will be...

    Pumping oil out of Yanmar 3YM30 from dip stick without removing oil filler cap

    In attempting to remove some excess oil from our Yanmar 3YM30 through the dip stick hole, I was unable to get very much out. I tried several times and chalked it up to the cold engine and/or ineffective pump. However, when reading the manual for the 3YM30, it specifically states that the oil...

    ‘81 Yamaha 30 Stuffing Box

    I recently purchased an ‘81 Y-30 and have appreciated the wealth of information available on this forum. Thank you. However, I have been unable to find anything related to re-packing the shaft stuffing box. There is a leak I am somewhat concerned about; the previous owner tells me it was...
