    new(used) sails for Hunter 34 (with a shortened mast?)

    I'm hoping to save some $ by going with a used sail for our Hunter 34 and I'm wondering how the B&R rig comes into the equation. Since the rig keeps the mast in a permanently arched condition it seems important that I get a sail that takes that into consideration. Wouldn't a sail made for a...

    holding tank fills itself

    The holding tank on our Hunter 34 keeps filling up with sea water while we're away from the boat. We're in a marina so the pump-out seacock stays closed all the time and the sea water intake for flushing gets closed whenever we leave the boat. What could be going wrong?

    Replacement parts for a shore power connector

    I have an '84 Hunter 34 and the threaded ring on the shore power connector has broken. It's a separate part that is held in place with three small screws but I have no idea who manufacured the shore power connector. I hate to replace the entire connector at about $150 when all that's broken is a...

    Parts for a shorepower socket

    The plastic threaded ring on our 30A shorepower connector broke and I'm hoping that parts are available to replace the broken piece rather than replacement of the entire socket. It's a 1084 H34 if that helps. Anybody know where I need to start looking? The broken part is on the socket that's...

    Alternator not charging

    We recently replaced the original alternator on the Yanmar 3GM in our Hunter 34 with a high output version (I think it's a Hatachi). The wires all seemed to match up with the exception of an extra single yellow wire on the back of the alternator. It doesn't appear that we are getting any juice...

    Yanmar instrument panel overhaul

    The Yanmar 3GM30F instruments on my 84 Hunter are well worn and I'd like to replace everything but can't get much advice on replacements. I've sent email to 2 Yanmar distributors with no reply. My questions are about the oil pressure gage and the tach. I'd like to replace the tach with one that...

    Trying to clean up weathered anodized rubrails

    The grey anodized aluminum rub rails on our Hunter 34 are pretty roughed up and need some welding repair in a couple of spots. If I can't figure out how to clean them up they will be the worst looking part of the boat when we reassemble everything. Since having a 32 ft long piece of aluminum...

I'm attaching the diagram that he provided for the model 20 2-speed non-geared winch that I'm cleaning up for our H34. AYW Co...

    We're doing a total top-to-bottom paint job on our Hunter 34 and have removed a lot of aluminum hardware that was fastened with SS bolts and screws.

    Replacements for fixed ports

    We're doing a total overhaul of the exterior of our 1984 H-34 and have already purchased powdercoated aluminum portlights that have a polished aluminum appearance. Now those old plastic fixed ports look horrible. I've come up with a design for an aluminum replacement that would be a bolt-in...
