    Impeller Puller

    Just a word of caution when trying to get the old, stuck impeller out... the pump housing metal is very soft, so don’t pry on the edge of pump body with a tool. Especially on the edge where the cover seals or the impeller rides. I had a very stuck impeller on a previous boat (Yanmar...

    Winterizing my 373 Yanmar 3JH4E.

    I would run the pink stuff through the HX as you have done in the past. Greg

    Arched helm seat

    Mine works the same...when heeled over, I shift a little to the left or right on the helmsman seat to get leveled out. Greg

    "Stuffing Box"?

    You can do it yourself if you don’t mind a little work. I replaced my prop shaft, replaced the stuffing box hose (my box was bronze so kept it - but repacked it). if I was to do it over now, I may go with a Volvo dripless...way more simple (and cheaper) than the PSS type system. But, I would...

    Which boat? Based Only On Specs.

    Well, if this is purely an academic exercise, I would go with the 35-footer... I sail a 32-footer now, which is close to the specs above...and I am about ready to move up. I would go to a 37-40 footer, but that is not an option. Greg

    Winterizing the C310 engine?

    And when he motors to the well to get lifted out by the travel lift. and if I need to, I hit the pumpout dock too the morning of haulout. At least that is how I do it. Greg

    Charging system question

    My fridge runs on DC all the time, as well as lights, stereo, etc. The fridge is always on. I have a switch on the AC panel for the battery charger, but it is (almost) always on. Might turn off the power if I am running an extension cord to the AC side to run lights when on the hard, etc...

    Shaft replacement O'Day 28

    I saw some guys at my marina drop the rudder while in the TravelLift. You need to be ready to get things done quick. But they did it over a weekend. Greg

    Pulls to port under power

    Do you mean in forwards or reverse? I think of prop walk primarily in slow speed (backing out of my slip). In forward, motoring hard, my boat will “Crazy Ivan” hard if I let go of the wheel. I guess I never thought about if it turns to STB or to Port...but she turns sharply. So which...

    Shaft replacement O'Day 28

    I have an O’Day 322, and when I replaced my shaft, I removed the cutlass bearing and stuffing box to gain a little horizontal wiggle room in my shaft. I took the paint off my rudder getting the old shaft out, and getting the new one in, but I did not have to drop the rudder. If you cut the...

    Your 2 cents on main sail furlers

    I am still pretty “young”...not quite 60... on my O’Day 322 with a traditional main, I use the following: 1) main halyard run back to the cockpit 2) a Milwaukee 28v right angle drill with a “ wincher” bit attachment 3) a Tides Marine Strong track 4) a Mack Sails Mack Pack with lazy-jacks this...

    O’Day. 40- reefing setup?

    Not always... my O’Day 322 has a line that runs through the boom to the rear sheaves...no shuttle block. Greg

    322, my winter project

    My fuel cut-off is mounted on the engine control panel. Pretty convenient to kill the engine, the turn the key off to silence the buzzer. Greg
