"Similarly, I changed out my aircon thru hull and valve a while back. Seems to be an issue. Recently, I was changing the aircon seawater pump and luckily found a valve on the distribution manifold (one pump serves two aircon units) that was fully…"

"Peter, agree totally. All AirCon thru-hulls need to be checked. I had a friend who suffered a near catastrophic event, exactly as you described. I changed mine out in advance of failure and also found the materials to be questionable. If in…"

  • Although the teeth on the serrated shaft cutters look tough, it has been shown in tests that they can "snag" on the fibers of the rope and actually pull it into the prop vs cutting right through as the razor sharp edged cutter (Prop Protector) does.

Shower drain check valve (non return valve) location on B43

Hi, the water in the front shower drain, when pumped out, seems to partially flowing into the aft shower drain box. And the water pumped out from that seems to be flowing back a little. I think the check valve is malfunctioning but I haven’t been able to locate it. Can anyone help please. Many thanks.See More

Power Cord change

After 10+ years it was time to change the 50A 125/250 V shore power splitter. It had served well but it was showing signs of degradation due to heat. I also had previously changed out the boat side power inlet connectors to the SmartPlug type, changing out the fittings on the shore power cable to match. I absolutely love the SmartPlug system. No twisting, sure connection, much more surface area, etc.I decided to buy short factory made 25 FT Smartplug power cords as I normally berth stern-to and…See More

"Hello everyone, Thank you VERY much for your answers. Really helpful. It’s a relief to know that the tank can be removed, and if the price is still around 200 euros, then that’s a lot less that what I was expecting, so good news. Will…"
