Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

I had a strong gas smell. It was a small leak coming from the fitting on my fuel pump. Tightened a little and never leaked again. You need to find the leak before something bad happens. Any wetness around a fuel fitting or line is a problem. Let us know what u find.

Re: Low Engine Power, White Smoke

Is the white smoke while you are cruising? If so, that’s steam from the cooling system which is normal. If it happens when you first crank, that’s a valve seal leak I would assume. No big deal.

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

Welcome aboard Ed. I’m assuming you purchased “Sea Harmony”. If you don’t have much of a crosswind and both engines you can handle the 32 no problem. If you lose an engine just call ahead on the radio to the fuel dock and they will grab a line to help you in. Best to come in to the end of a dock wit...

Re: Mildew removal

The dehumidifier should do a good. I use one of these https://www.amazon.com/Davis-Instruments-Air-Dryr-1000-Dryer/dp/B0014TMXVA/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=marine+dehumidifier&qid=1559654495&s=gateway&sr=8-2 . No need for drain. Also use a small fan on a timer to circulate the air 4 times a day...

Re: Wax?? Need some guidance

Wax has come a long way since the 80's......... Wash boat with Dawn dish washing liquid. That takes all oils, etc off. Zaino Clear Seal http://www.zainostore.com/product/Z-CS.html Then use Zaino Z-8 for every other wash maintenance. http://www.zainostore.com/product/Z-8.html This stuff wipes on and ...

Cleaning tips and tricks

Orpine This seems to be the best soap per boating forums. Very concentrated and goes a long way. I've used it for the last couple of seasons and it does a good job. Dissolves spider poo if you apply and let sit for a couple of minutes. Orpine Boat Soap & Wax https://www.amazon.com/OPW2-Orpine-B...
