looking to get a bit more room and larger boat . not live aboard but short trips 2-5 days for couple or 2 cpls.
found several in area but one in particular is a 1987 cat-34 with wing keel.
can anyone direct me to a site to find out what was original equipt from factory and problem areas to...
Agreed with Benny
If the cows are on the highway too late to close the gates.
The second pump // switch is better if you have room. Some bilges are smaller than others.
there fore my back up is on the shelf but on the boat with other spares.
Thanks for all the great info. there is lots of food for thought. Spent most of the afternoon onboard today isolating the source of the water and it appears that it is coming from the cooling coils that the water flows thru. I check both hoses and they are dry so the leak is aparently inside...
I noticed the other day that my builge pump was running every couple of minutes then off coming on about every 2 minutes . Investigated and found the pump barrings were shot. Luckily I have a spare pump onboard so it was a 5 minute job. However there is a small trickle of water coming from the...
My boat came with a SS radar arch on the stern and the stern light was relocated to the top of the arch. Another ooption is to move it to the transom as they make lights that are more water resistant now in the aqua signal line. Depends on how much drilling you are willing to do i...
As a professional mariner, I can attest to the accuracy of these findings. Having worked 6 on 6 off since 1995, there are so many days that turn out to be 18 hr days at sea.
personaly speaking, I have found myself making choices between eating and sleeping.
after standing a 6 hr watch , you...
Make a paste from baking soda and water. Use your fingers to polish the dome , this is like a polishing /rubbing compund that some jewelers use to remove scratches from watch crystals.
And Happy fourth to you also.
As Steve mentioned, I would test the batteries individually. I had 2 AGM's in my H-31 I purchased in Sept of last year that had one went bad. However , they were installed in Sept 2004 so they lasted 6 yrs. Due to the foot print and performance, i replaced with same brand and size.
I also had the gen set blues at one time for my hunter 31 and found that the MASE gensets had a pretty small foot print and also more affordable than the panda's.
LIke others mentioned aboave, i found myself using the honda 2000 to supply A/C while on the hook.
The prices i found for the mase...
There are basically 2 channels " if you wanna stay in the ICW " that run to gulfport.
Being a tugboat rather than sail boat, ive made that passage too many times to count.
The one member here that i know can help from experience is nice-n-easy. He lives off the lake and...
Has anyone added a small dorm fridg to their H-31 ? and if so where did you mount it ?
was thinking of under the chart table or removing the oven which has never been used, not even once.

Another trick is ti make a soft paste from baking soda and water. A jeweler taught me this trick to remove scratches from watches and polish tjhe face ..
As mentioned aboave try a test spot on front of globe.
Ditto on the AGM's ,
My H-31 i purchased in sept of last year had orbital AGMs that were installed sept 2004, knowing that information . i searched for the same brand to achieve the same foot print.
This was my first experience with AGM batteries and a good one.
