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). Sigh, why can't we all own more then one boat (or maybe you do? ).
"Sam, funny you should raise this question. We were hearing the same type noise about two months ago only hearing it at night. We were tied to a dock so no impact from anchor or windlass. It reminded me of the type of noise a small servo type motor…"
"i should have added more clarity / information. This happens totally independent from the air conditioner systems. It is not the condensate pumps. The sound has happened at a quiet anchorage with no 115 volt power ( no shore power and …"
"FYI the power to the pump comes thru the AC control brain mounted near the AC unit. Power still goes to the pump if the unit is turned off at the thermastat but not if you turn off the circuit breaker."
"If you have air/heat on the boat and the unit is on, it can be the condensation pump for the air conditioner. If not, not sure. If you do have air, then turn of air and seer if buzzing stops. And this is a sign of a new condensation pump.
OK, another strange one.When all is quiet I her an intermitent buzz emanating from somewhere forward, It goes "buzz, buzz" then quiet. Happens at about forty second intervals (but not consistent). Sounds like an electrical sound, but am very uncertain.The boat is a 2008 43, with thruster and windlass. It sounds like it comes from the windlass area or the port side in the vberth.The admiral is developing a tick.Ideas?SamLonghawkSee More
