Re: Wax?? Need some guidance

You are quite fortunate to have the paint in good condition since many Marinette paint jobs began to chalk severely in short order. Whatever the original owner(s) of your boat did, do the same because it seems to have worked exceptionally well. Meanwhile, some of the polymer polish products seem to ...

Re: Fuel Tank Removal

from the USCG - Here is what appears to be a good read on fuel tanks. A quick scan of the document, by the way, doesn't show a prohibition against plastic tanks in general though it may contain some specific requirements. It does clearly mandate that if any parts of the fuel fill are metallic, they ...

Re: sherwood raw water pump

Now..I remember (yes, thanks, Jeff). One year the mechanic installed the impeller backwards on the Stbd engine and when we started the boat, it blew water out instead of sucking it in. Giant bubbles coming up from below. A very quick shutdown reaction amidst lots of hollering saved the day.

Re: 318 ignition system

Since the question of CG approval was raised, I'd check and double check to make certain they are, in fact, ok'd. If there were an explosion, your insurance company would have grounds to refuse the claim and I suspect one could be held criminally liable for consequences. It's easy to get the answer....

Re: Hooking up a Hot Water heater to raw water 318

Glad to hear you've recovered.

First source would be Raritan - their units have gone into almost every kind of setup one could imagine. And it would be great to post the results and a how-to once you've done the project

Re: Galvonic Isolator- Where and how is it connected?

We're in luck on your behalf. This forum featured a Capac discussion a couple of years ago (which is why doing a search here can save you time. In this case, Ii used Google to search). Voila - scroll down to see the Capac manual I posted. It's not the clearest illustration, I admit, but it's right f...
