    Lewmar Main Sail Car

    Quick question for the group - I have the original Lewmar car for my self-furling main where the rubber support under the pulley has disintegrated. As it doesn’t appear to be a part that I can replace I was wondering what the community thinks about continuing to use as is or potentially...

    Toilet Issue

    Thanks to all - fixed the issue with a new joker valve this morning. The old one was clearly not closing fully and added it my annual maintenance list. Now for a quick sail on the Chesapeake to see if it holds under a good heel.

    Toilet Issue

    Thanks Tim - guessing that I need to determine the model of my Jabsco to determine which replacement valve.

    Toilet Issue

    I am having a bit of a problem with the toilet, notably when heeling more than 5• the toilet bowl starts to fill up with waste. I am guessing that a back check valve / seal has gone bad, but have no idea where to start investigating. Any thoughts / links to “how to” sites are appreciated.

    Tankage

    Wanted to build on this thread for an issue I’m having with our water heater, notably the residual smell of marine anti freeze. I do a 2-3x flush of the system when I launch in the spring, but it the smell coloring seems to linger. In looking at the system the only thing of concern is this...

    Thanks for the photos. When you demasted was their something in the hole that was acting as a barrier? When I was trying to run a wire for a new wind gauge it was getting blocked.

    Catalina 310 history questions

    I would concur with KZW - only one significant issue with getting IMF main back in and it was absolutely due to my messing with boom vang setting. I’ve learned my lesson and kept it set. And would also agree on original head sail Selden furler - has to be a perfect technique to ensure tight...

    Got it - thanks!! Can I ask how challenging was it to replace the lines? I have never done this previously and am concerned about those that go through the mast.

    It sounds like we have a quorum of 4 - now the hard part - finding a date. I’ll send a message out later in the spring when we are hopefully through this current situation.

    Catalina 310 Fairlee Creek Meetup this year?

    I just saw the 2012 Fairlee Creek meetup photo on the daily email and was wondering if any of the Cat 310 owners in that area would be interested in coordinating a meetup for this season?

    How much antifreeze for wintering the engine?

    Thanks Don - So the words of the previous owner “half a gallon more once you see pink” are good.

    How much antifreeze for wintering the engine?

    Thanks for sharing - my ac unit has something similar. Didn’t realize that something like this was available for the engine water line.

    How much antifreeze for wintering the engine?

    I have the standard engine on the Cat 310 and was wondering how much antifreeze others use for winterizing? The person that I bought the boat from gave me a rule of thumb guide, “have someone watch the exhaust area, when the pink starts coming out put another half gallon through and you are...
