Re: sliding screens

just completed this. it was every bit as difficult as the first time. the raised rail that the screen rides on is about 1/16" too high. this makes it necessary to jam the screen up into the adjacent slot in the top of the window frame. this is an extremely tight fit. even then getting the screen fra...

sliding screens

hi all, i'm in the process of re-screening the sliding side screens. i did this before about 10 years ago and it wasn't easy then either. anyone have any tips on how to get screen out (i have already removed the plastic u-shaped inserts) and just as importantly back in? i've noticed that there is no...

Re: Prop Shaft/Seal

it's been a longtime, so i don't remember the shaft diameter. do a search it's well documented on forum. we've had pss for about 10 or 12 years, around 2000 miles. they work well. the most important thing though is: 1) shaft alignment 2) straight shaft 3) good cutlass bearing. any wobble will kill t...

Re: hand rail repair

after looking at the picture more closely, you can get at the backing on the portside side stanchion from inside the bow locker. a marine welder will be able to fabricate a new bow curve and butt weld into the existing bow rail. some straightening will probably be required but imho doable.

Re: hand rail repair

years ago we had a side rail collapse. we were in bahamas and i thought it would be a case of "toughing it out" until we returned to the us. a local suggested that we talk to the local welder, which i did. he said if we could loosen the rail enough to get a sleeve in it would make it easier. we did ...

Re: Oil Cooler End Cap Connector Rubber Coupling

mike,

i have spares on boat but it's in stuart and we won't be there for another month. let me know if you haven't gotten by then.

just a thought. could could cobble together a short piece of hose to go over cooler end then a piece of pvc, pvc end cap, pvc reducer then straight hose to pump/pipe?
