Re: PLASTEAK flying bridge

Topcoat is good stuff. We distributed and sold hundreds of gallons before retiring from that.

Found rot in cabin top

What looked like some minor rot on front edge of forward cabin top actually was much worse than originally thought. Rot never sleeps.[attachment=0]33DCF4FD-6B4D-4FFD-B736-A84C2025D802.jpeg[/attachment]1

Re: Transmission cable? or Bigger Problem!

After you disconnect the cable mark where the leaver detects are so after you hook back up you can see if your helm control is providing proper throw to engage up to those marks.

Re: GB32 replace cutlass bearings

I don’t understand the reasoning for leaving in the old center bearing, and using it with a new shaft. I guess they didn’t pull the stern tube to access it. How could they even tell if it wasn't worn, if they didn’t access it? To do this job properly, and replace all three bearings, you have to pull...

Re: Where is the likely place for fuel leaks?

I don’t think those rubber connectors on the side of the engine have anything to do with a fuel leak. Aren’t they just an isolation seal for the steel fuel lines passing through the head? Those would just leak oil if they were bad. There should be no rubber connections or joints in the fuel lines af...

Re: 32 woodie Ford Lehman steaming

I think the sensor is probably off. I shot the bottom of the heads, next to the expansion tank and I get about 180 with the infrared gun. Fog was forming near the golden gate, and that is when I noticed the steam. It seems to occur only under certain atmospheric conditions. I read in several forums ...

32 woodie Ford Lehman steaming

We took the boat out for a bay cruise yesterday, and I was seeing a lot of steam out the exhaust. This seemed to go away later while returning to port, and the weather was warmer. I have gone thru the raw water system and inspected and cleaned the heat exchanger and coolers, replaced the impeller, c...

Re: GB32 replace cutlass bearings

We did ours two years ago. We had to replace the complete brass stern tube due to electrolisys where it joined the stern bearing housing. The center bearing is located in a center coupling and the two sections of stern tube thread on to it. The bearings are held by set screws. We drilled the rudder ...

Re: WINDLASS AMP DRAW

Any fuse used on a motor should be a dual element time delay fuse to account for the starting surge of the motor. All inductive loads require this type of fuse, or they will blow pre maturely. My windlass has a switch designed with an overload and reset button specially designed for the application.

Re: Rotted rub rail

Can you scarf in pieces of African Mahogany? i know the rub rail is made up of several pieces, and is screwed into the sub decking with large silicon Bronze screws. Maybe Bob Lowe can suggest a repair technique, if you just have to repair sections.
