Wow! 27hp Yanmars! Did your boat come with those or were they replaced? I have Perkins 18hp engines. What is your cruising speed? How much fuel per hour? Do you have folding props?
I just refinished the sole. Added deckgrip to the holly strips to give a little bit of grip. Now refinishing the galley fiddle boards! What are you doing to your main cabin?
Hi fellow L37 owners! I just realized that you were on here after looking at you website! Did you figure out you engine situations yet? I have a lot of info on L37s and the Perkins M20s... that is if you haven't replaced them yet....
Hey there - thanks for the friends invite - have accepted! I've been absent from here for awhile, but will be back more often. Am presently selling our Catalina 25 and getting a bigger one (tho' I wish I could keep the 25 as well - it's such a fun boat to sail).

"As Chris mentioned there's a rebuild kit available for the pump. The kit has a new pump bellows as well as a check valve. Both should resolve your back flow issue.

I am having problems with my Teleflex engine control. It works fine controlling the throttle, mooves smoothly. But when the tranny is engaged the lever is very hard to move past 10:00 inf orwrd, or 2:00 in reverse. Once it passes that point it moves smoothly. And going from forwrd to reverse is especially difficult. I have a 2012 B40 with a Yanmar 53hp diesel.Any ideas?See More
Hope someone can help me.I have a 2009 BEN OC 43 with a Yanmar 4JH4AE diesel. I am replacing the tachometer and need to configure the new unit. Does anyone know the pulse count from the alternator?See More
