    Raymarine I40 depth display problem

    The unit has worked flawlessly until today. I powered it on as usual and the display no longer is back lit and the screen is full of everything that I guess it can possibly display, it won’t change any of the display, The button are Unresponsive. I plan to call the manufacture but was hoping...

    Navman 3100 -help-

    Just had my navman wind 3100 lcd fixed (beautiful work and crazy inexpensive prices. Indigo Electronis). But...I get no data. The b&g auto pilot will not even power up and the chart plotter cant ever acquire a gps coord (very old units). Does the wind indicator run through these other...

    Security alarms

    I get the feeling this question has to have been asked and I searched briefly and could find no post addressing this. I’d like a simple alarm system that lets me know someone is screwing with my dingy, or very close to my vessel. I’m thinking bright LED light and a loud audible alert. It...

    H37c generators

    That is an option I’m trying to avoid. I own a small stand up model that would work well and draw a lot less, not to mention many window units would probably be even more effective And are very inexpensive. I’m just trying to not add clutter to the boat. The Generator itself is manageable, but...

    1980 h37c hot water heater install

    Where in the heck can I squeeze this thing in? The starboard lazaret os the only place that seems large enough to hold the 6gal unit. However with hot water heater on my breaker board I’d think that there is electrical sitting somewhere close to plumbing made for the install. I just can’t...

    H37c generators

    I am still generatorless at the moment, but I have constant shore power so no worries. However this year I plan to spend an extended amount of time (until I’m broke) In the Caribbean, and that time can greatly extended by staying on anchor. Back to the Gen.... the Honda 2200 won’t kick off...

    H37c mainsail needed

    Like joe above, I also purchased a main from Far East sails. The main for my 37c with the full batten upgrade and the 8.8 Dacron triple stitched heavy strong cruiser sail cost me right around $1300 delivered. Michael, the sales rep I dealt with was awesome, quick to answer questions, and...

    Yanmar 2gm20f not going over 2k rpms

    Just spoke with my neighbor 38’ Island Packet he said he had the same problem (cant break 2k) and it ended up being the prop. Took an experienced prop guy to get it dialed in but now he can do a comfy 25-2700rpm, but unfortunately only gained about 1 mph. You should be able to take a boat in...

    Rope to wire halyard rope length?

    Thanks for the explanation. That would i guess account for what i considered as excess line on the block and tackle. If you are moving it to different anchor points on the toe rail you are changing the length needed by every minor adjustment. Sounds like a race option, but something I’d like...

    Rope to wire halyard rope length?

    Lazy jacks!!! This really makes the most sense to me. I think the block and tackle and amount of line was just crazy to me. Thanks guys! And I’m ears open to other suggestions...

    Rope to wire halyard rope length?

    A steel line coming from the mast terminating at the deck/hull in my uneducated mind is typically a halyard. I understand the true definition, of a “wire to rope” halyard, you are correct that is not what this is. I just don’t know how else to categorize this piece of rigging, and I clearly...

    Rope to wire halyard rope length?

    4:1 block and tackle to reduce halyard slap, that’s a lot of line and hardware to achieve such a simple objective. But I don’t see how this setup achieves any added structural integrity. Just seems odd. Thanks for the response.

    Rope to wire halyard rope length?

    Why do i have such long rope on these halyards (has to be 50+ ft) ? The boat is a 1980 hunter 37c. The only thing that makes any sense to me is if it were related to a spinnaker or they are there to help haul something heavy aboard. Im a new owner and still figuring out the intricacies of...

    H37c mainsail needed

    I need a new (used) main for my 1980 37c. I’m not a racer, just want a cruising sail in good condition, any ideas or suggestions without spending $1000’s.

    1980 37c galley help

    what are some good options for refrigeration ? I’m thinking of gutting the galley and starting over, microwave, toaster oven, but what about refrigeration? I plan to live aboard in a marina with shore power and spend time in the Caribbean, but will likely never need to cook while underway...

    H37c generators

    what is a realistic (no major mods, no crazy money) way to use a generator while on the hook with my 1980 h37c. Thinking about one of the small Honda’s sitting in the cockpit at night or even hanging in a custom built box from the davits off the back. Talking river and flat water anchorages...
