    Engine compartment fire extinguisher

    You might look at non traditional methods. There is a fire rope, a tube filled with retardant under pressure that delivers its load where the “rope” gets melted thru- the hot spot. There are also fire balls. Amazon.com : fire balls extinguisher

    If it’s female hose thread could be shore water input. Not to fill tanks but provide pressurized water while at shore. Good device for sinking your boat if left unattended.

    Got a new to me 1974 Catalina And have some questions...

    Great time. Probably figuring how to minimize snow getting inside the hood. Had ~5” snow on deck next morning. Also fun with Ferry who was entering Long Harbour as we rounded Salt Spring. AIS was very helpful as visibility was less than 1/4mile, we did finally see the ferry for less than a...

    Fuel filter relocation

    If you main issue is water, the series filters won’t help. The first filter will fill up with water and block all flow (water or fuel) to the second filter. Your better off putting the two in parallel and going with either 10 or 30 micron filters.

    Auto pilot wiring - out of room!

    mph Kohn your comment cuts me to the quick. I only suggested a sawsall on the speed sensor. It was Ken who recommended it for the sink and raw water. I am truest dissapointed that we ran out of time to give you a new speed sensor. Les

    Auto pilot wiring - out of room!

    You can cut and splice the SeaTalkNG cable. They don’t recommend it. Just use gel filled scotch locks or euro style terminal strip, or best of all male and female NMEA 2000 field installable ends. I upsized my helm guard and ran all wires down the tubes, but 1” will hold a lot of wires.

    Edson Pedestal Reinforcement

    That plate only holds the ends of the pull pull conduits and doesn’t support the pedestal. The nuts under it do hold the pedestal to the deck. You should check the condition of the core material around the pedestal it may be rotted
