    Hunter 41DS engine room blower replacement

    Hi All, Finally (I was wondering when it would happen) the engine room blower does not work anymore. I noticed it has both a relay and the motor itself and have not ordered parts quite yet.

    Salt water soap

    Years ago an old girlfriend was able to locate 'salt water soap' to have on the boat. Particularly useful to help with dish washing while conserving fresh water and for other things. Basically this - Saltwater soap - Wikipedia I hunted around online a couple years ago and again a bit today...

    Hunter 41DS with original Raymarine C120 chart plotter and electric compass issues

    Hey All, So I have been working around this since (second owner) got the boat about 5 years ago.

    Hunter 41DS asymmetrical spinnaker sheet leads

    Hi All, I am thinking about getting an asymmetrical chute - actually one of the Doyle 'Utility Power Sails'. It is pretty obvious with the attachment at the bow, and the mast has a string where the halyard would go and am empty clutch - but I am a bit unsure on the sheet leads. The arch has...

    Hunter 41DS boom preventer/brake leads

    Hi All, I have a 2009 Hunter 41DS and want to install a boom brake. There are these u-bolts between the stanchions that look really sturdy and seem almost like they are there exactly for this. On the boom - there is also an eye where the vang attaches. It seems to be only about 1/4 aft of the...
