Steady Sail from 42 GB Cl

I have a steady sail at home off of my '76 GBCL. I have never used it and now that I have installed a pipe davit and removed my boom I will never use it. I have not measured it but if there is any interest I can certainly do that. No idea what it is worth but will consider any offer plus shipping. P...

Re: Battery Charger Replacement

I am on my third battery charger. I had the original 40 amp Sentry, two 40 amp ProMariner, and now I have a 60 amp 1260 ABSCO. The ABSCO has been a great charger, reasonably priced at West Marine, and has reduced charging time considerably. I am attaching the owners manual FYI.

Re: Foam replacement on generator sound shield.

Thank you for the prompt and informative post. Found both products on the internet. Need to make a decision but leaning toward Soundown Acoustic Foam since I found it at Defender, which is close to where my boat is.

Foam replacement on generator sound shield.

The two removable sound shield panels on the sides of my Onan 9 kw generator have 1" sound deadening foam that is deteriorating. Is there a particular type of foam that can take the heat and exposure to oil and salt water on the interior of the sound shield that I should look for?

Re: Aft Hatch Leaks

Had similar issue on my '76 GBCL. My hatch rides on two teak guides attached to the sides of the two large teak runners that the hatch sits on. Remove the screws from each guide and slide out. The hatch can now be lifted straight up.

Re: Food for thought

Bob Jack, one buys life insurance not because of fear but because it is prudent to protect those that you care about. You think fear is the motivation to protect oneself, however, self reliance is really what it is about. If your home is being broken into waiting 20 minutes for the police to show up...

Re: Weight of an early glass GB42?

My 1976 GB Classic glass is listed as 34,000 pounds displacement. I do not know if that includes 650 gallons of diesel and 240 gallons of water or not.

Wow, quite the lady.

In case you think you're old? Jeanne Louise Calment had the longest confirmed human Lifespan on record: 122 years and 164 days. It seems that fate strongly approved of the way Madam Calment lived her life: • Jeanne was born in Arles, France, on 21st February 1875, • When the Eiffel Tower was built, ...
