Engine, engine #....January 12, 2014 Day 52

Proof the new 3YM 20 is operating smooth as silk, well as smooth as a 3 cylinder diesel can get. Fully installed, Danny Diesel started within a split second of pushing the electronic start button.

Today I will paint the wood back board and some interior places that need some paint. Doing fiberglass repair to the wood inside the power connection box for the engine dashboard, gps and other electronic equipment that got wet,,,,oops,,,,,,

Looks like I will be Key West bound later this week. Maybe Tuesday, maybe Wednesday,,,,,,Friends are there until Friday so it would be nice to arrive before they leave. Race week starts next Saturday so the anchorage may be busy. That could be good for securing helping hands; it could be bad as the anchorage may be unusually full. Oh well, it's ho, ho, ho a sailor's life for me.

"Has anyone ever removed your handrails for resealing?  I have a leak and I'm not sure if I need to remove them from the topside or from below in the salon. "

Resealing handrails on Oday 30

I'm going to attempt to reseal my handrails on our 84' Oday 30.  I noticed there are screw holes (teak plugs) both on the topside and down in the salon.  Does anyone know if both screws need to be removed to reseal or just the topside screw?See More

"Hi, Just before my starting battery (six years old) went dead when I was at anchor (that was another story) I was having erratic readings or better saying - the lcd was very difficult to read even during the night. When the new battery was mounted,…"

"Hello, I only saw this thread today! I had the same problem last year with my Oceanis 40 2010. In my case it was the reverse that would not engage all the times. I also was suggested to remove and check the gearbox. But it turned out that it was…"

Sailing in the Buff

Lou, for some unknown reason the group has mysteriously vanished.  It no longer appears on my page either.  Hope it wasn't something we said!See More
