    Removing the backstay on a 1990 B&R Rig

    Actually, it IS a B&R rig and the back stay is factory as others have said. I had a ‘94 33.5 with the exact same rig and it stated in the owners manual to be B&R. My “90 Passage 42 is in the same config, and is also B&R. The rig was changed mid-90’s as you describe to eliminate the back stay.

    Open CPN and Tablets

    I have OpenCPN running on a Dell Latitude 7212 w/ Win 10. It runs smooth though it’s *EDIT* NOT incredibly fast. I haven’t spent enough time with it to be fluid with all the functions of the program but I am happy with its performance.

    Hunter Passage 42

    Double check your rudder stock against the drawing. My 1990 P42 has a considerably larger stock than the 1.5” tube shown in the drawing. If I had built my replacement tiller from that drawing alone there would have been unacceptable slop in the fit. I had to use 2.75” tubing to match the I.D. of...

    Solar arch on a Passage 42

    The Atlantic Towers arch can mount pretty much anywhere you like. We mounted ours on the sugar scoop to. I’ve it as far aft as possible. We then added a extra support tube on each side for extra security but I am sure it’s not needed. I just sleep better knowing it’s there. Below are a couple...

    P42 hot water leak

    Hmm, I wrote this about 14 hrs ago but apparently did not click "post reply". Just finished replacing the broken fitting. Tight access is a pretty good description. Petit sailors will likely have an easier time than us big boys. I removed both battery boxes for ease of access. Would have liked...

    P42 hot water leak

    I'm a happy boy!!!! The fitting nut on the hot water line attatching it to the T fitting is completely broken. I located the line as Terry described it. Repair will be to replace the nut though I am certain the batteries will have to come out and possibly the muffler to gain access. No matter, I...

    P42 hot water leak

    Thank you guys. You have both been very helpful. I would not new surprised at all if the hot line at the sit tub T has been leaking since before we bought the boat in 2014. The pump used to cycle about once a minute but I always assumed it was the water heater as it has signs of leakage. With...

    P42 hot water leak

    Terry, You article reads almost word for word what we have been through including the idea the water tank was leaking from below. It will be a few weeks before we get back to the boat but I promise I will look first at the tub fitting. Oddly, I recall another P42 owner posting on FB he recently...

    P42 hot water leak

    We have a '90 Passage 42. Does anyone know how the hot water lines are run on this model? All I can see is it exits the water heater and disappears under the hull pan. Somewhere, the line has blown open and we're pumping water under the pan which then flows in to the keel sump through limber...
