Re: Teak deck wear - major renovation or just clean it and live with it?

Follow up. Salt water is absolutely the best thing to use to clean your decks. Using Cascade is plan B.

Re: Teak deck wear - major renovation or just clean it and live with it?

Jeff Gibbs of Jeff Gibbs teak in FL emphatically says, NEVER USE two part cleaners! It will erode the bond between the caulk and teak edges. He said if I must clean to use a very very soft bristle brush and lightly go across the grain, never with it. He recommended using Cascade dishwasher detergent...

Re: cleaning heat exchanger problem

When it comes to heat exchangers my mantra is replace rather than fix.
I feel this is a throw away item.
Lenco on Long Island will fabricate a form/fit/functionality identical heat exchanger for very little. I have found them to be an excellent resource.

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...

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...
