Re: Battery Charger Replacement

Bill, you indicated you installed a 40 amp charger. What size is your shorepower inlet - 30 or 50 amps? Does it matter for battery charger sizing?

Battery Charger Replacement

Time to replace the original Sentry battery charger on Raven (GB Classic 42-1293).

I'm looking f...

Re: Foam replacement on generator sound shield.

I replaced the foam insulation on my Northern Lights generator enclosure earlier this year using a composite foam product available at Fisheries Supply. Here's the product description from Fisheries: "This is a foam noise barrier with an internal layer of extra dense vinyl for superior sound ab...

Re: Re-bedding deck fills

I'm a little slow, but I did say I'd post some more about replacing my fuel tank deck fill pipe after it was done. The hardest part, of course, was access. This was a particular problem in getting the new hose mounted on the top of the tanks. Did get 'er done in the end. I'll attach some pictures.

Thus, unit could be used for parts/spares or repaired and put in use. $100. Located in Seattle. Can deliver within 60 miles or ship at ...

Re: New Saloon Upholstery

Bjorn,

Good advise about photos and bringing the cushions to the shop.

I was rather hoping to learn where other GB owners have had re-upholstery done so that I might benefit from their experiences and (hopefully) narrow my search for a reputable shop.

Re: Yard for Hull Repainting

She's a glass boat in pretty good shape so no need for paintwork above the waterline.

Yard for Hull Repainting

I'm looking for recommendations for a good yard (or ones to avoid) in the Puget Sound area for hull repainting on Raven. I'm looking to have several layers of old paint removed, a new barrier coat applied and then anti-fouling.

I'd appreciate learning about other owner's experiences.

Thanks.

Re: Holding Tank Not Fully Emptying

Oldersalt, You ask, could you really have 15 gallons of sludge in your tank? The answer is probably yes. Because the corrosion of the tank pick-up tube was gradual over a considerable time, I found that I had essentially years of accumulated sludge in my holding tank. So ... in addition to having to...
