Black water in the head

Posted on July 6, 2017 at 4:13pm 2 Comments

Hey Folks

Anyone ever have any problems with black water returning to the head?

Im thinking there must be a damaged check valve some where in line.

getting ready for winter

Sorry about that I thought you were aking how we climbed on board our 43. As for questions feel free to ask about anything. I'll do my best to help out.

Michael, we have her tied up stern to and step on and off via the swim platform. We'll be moving her to a permanent marina in 2 weeks and will do the same thing there. Note that both have floating docks. I expect that we'll have to board thru the side gates when tied up to fixed piers. I'm 5'9" and it's a stretch for me to get on board without a step. My wife is 5' and definately needs a boost to get on board. We bought a collapsable stool that fits in behind the narrow panel in the galley next to the engine compartment. Not sure the panel exists on the 40.

"we had this same hydraulic drive on our 2008 B43. I agree with Jeff Shukis. This is a really nice hydraulic drive. It was extremely reliable and of sturdy construction. Well worth repairing if possible."
