Re: Interior water condensation or leak?

Follow up.
I’m am convinced the water has come from condensation.
Since the initial issue we have been thoroughly engaged in some wet weather. Not a drop.

Re: Did I fry my alternator

Hi! A quick initial test would be to measure the voltage on the batteries with the shore power disconnected. If you measure 13.5-15.5V on the batteries while engine is running then it’s working. Find out the model of your alternator and google search to understand the connections. It could be the al...

Re: KVH TracVision 4

Hi Dave- Indeed! I think it would be perfect! Keep it within the family. :) She’s coming off the mast of a 2003 42’ EU. I was thinking $1,650. I haven’t removed it yet. Probably this weekend. If you like we could FaceTime on the weekend prior to removal to insure yourself that all is well. I can pac...

KVH TracVision 4

KVH TracVision 4 System (North America) with dual LNB with Direct TV D10-200 Receiver. The system came with the boat and we never watch TV so it’s available to someone in our boating community who would enjoy satellite TV. The dome houses an 18” antenna. (Dome dimensions: 19.3” dia x21”h) weight:30l...

Re: Higher temperature in port engine

Depending upon how old your heat exchangers are I would replace them. I have a cleaned one as a spare but in my estimation if they are 15-20 years old they are throw away items.
Contact Lenco on Long Island. They are excellent to work with.(I’m not connected with them- just a very satisfied customer)

Rail fender accessory protects varnished bulwarks cap rail

Last summer we purchased cup holders manufactured by Snapit. They are excellent for holding drinks, etc. on the bridge. This summer I started thinking about a modification of their product to attach fender lines to the rail. My interest was to insure the fender line didn’t destroy the varnished fini...

Re: Interior water condensation or leak?

That’s an interesting observation..... the 5’ length of trim was replaced when the deck was re-seamed. If one of those screws was tightened too much I could see that as an issue. If I can validate this I would think a proper remedy would be to drill out those holes, fill with epoxy and re-attach tri...

Re: Interior water condensation or leak?

I had the boat re-seamed in Ft. Lauderdale,FL by Jeff Gibbs Teak. He’s well known in the area. He did replace the corner molding which was cracked. Perhaps I should pull this molding first to inspect underneath. My cruising time is about 4-6 hours at a time. I don’t run the blowers while I run the e...

Interior water condensation or leak?

This season I have noticed a reoccurring stain on the port side ceiling in the-berth. This is our second season with the boat.(In the northeast) The boat lived in CA for most of its life. I’m thinking it is not a water leak per se because the staining doesn’t occur during a heavy rain and I see no e...

Re: Crazy Question

I too have thought about this. I believe the technology is there and is being marketed right now. It would seem that the GB would be the perfect boat to install an electric drive. Lithium batteries could certainly take up a good portion of fuel tank space. I dare say the battery weight might be less...

Conversion of V-berth to walk around double bed

Our 2003 GB 42EU has a v- berth and double in the port stateroom. Has anyone converted an exiting v berth to a double bed?
I am considering undertaking this and would be grateful to gather as much info as possible.

Re: Coolant loss from heat exchanger

Agreed. If you see no evidence of a leak the first item to check is the heat exchanger. Chances are coolant is being pumped into the raw water side of the system. This can be checked quite easily by removing the hose where the raw water is injected into your exhaust riser. Utilizing a 5 gallon bucke...
