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

I was thinking the same thing as bpboater. The galvanic isolator and the capac meter are different and unrelated devices. The Capac meter usually was installed below/under the helm and is, well, it's a meter with a dial. It does have two connections. That's what you appear to be referencing in your ...

This is NOT a Boat Sale Thread

But it is a genuine deal. Since, as my tagline notes, I'm a former owner, I don't need my West Marine Gift card any longer and am willing to share the value with a Marinetter who knows a good deal when he/she sees one. My gift card retains a value of $43.11 - I just verified it on the West Marine we...

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Adding a vote to keep that macerator; feed the "output" into the holding tank which you'll probably install under the forward berth. Then plumb the pumpout hose up to the deck fittings. The exception would be if you go for an electric composting head setup. I'm not shilling for any mfr but...

Re: Paint Stripper

Want to add one note - while we all have fairly good advice for you (modestly speaking), you would do well to have a short chat with the Interlux tech people or get one of their how-to sheets. There's a fair amount of effort involved and getting it done correctly will save you work and money in the ...

Re: Paint Stripper

A short add to Jeff's good note: apply that barrier coat as quickly as possible. Not tomorrow -- but within a few hours.

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

Those pressure and alarm switches are notorious problem spots. When mine gave out and gushed oil, I luckily happened to be looking over the engine at that moment and shut it down, savings really big repair bills and major cleanup. One of the lessons, for me, is that those things ought to be replaced...

Re: 360 valve cover gasket replacement

All the intelligent articles I've seen over the years downplay the effectiveness of those additives for the reason the other poster just put up. Their main benefit is to the company that makes them. People buy them because they promise an easy way out.
