Re: Fuel system upgrades

Bill..I know this isn't exact responsive to your query - Jeff is THE man on this issue - but just wanted to pass along that I think the unit directly above the one you marked is the oil press alarm.

Re: Stern railing design

Re: the metal inside the canvas.

Re: Non Skid grit paint

When I had boat repainted the painter used non-skid on the walkaround (and maybe the swim platform, too). Very effective. Sorry, can't recall the details of what he used but think it was an off the shelf product that mixed with the Awlgrip.

Re: Running light bulbs

When you upgraded to led for the anchor, port and starboard did you have to replace the fixtures or is there a conversion for using the old fixture? Modern LED's fit a variety of sockets.

Re: How to remove pump from wheel?

Sorry if I have this recollection wrong, but the mfr of the steering system may be Hynautic. Call them for quick, accurate advice. Also, don't recall anyone ever posting that seat base or headliner must come down.

good luck with this big project

Re: Marinette 39 Sedan Transport plan

At the risk of repeating what you already know, here's one piece of the transportation plan that always is mentioned by those who've moved a boat with a flybridge. That is, be very careful to label every wire you disconnect. That will save you much aggravation at the other end. I'd add one more for ...
