Understanding the CAPAC

Looking for an understanding of my CAPAC system. This is one system I have not yet traced out but I fully intend on getting an education about it as I need to fully understand the system. By reading through the many posts on this forum I picked up on the CAPAC may be a through hull. This was not exp...

Re: Before and After Topside Color Scheme

EWRice, I think the color scheme on your boat looks great and it helps me a lot. I understand the point about the heat gain with the darker colors.

Re: Before and After Topside Color Scheme

So that's what the Flattening Agent that Interlux sells is for, makes sense now. That would be some glare coming off of my lower cabin top. Thank you.

Re: Twin Screw Engine Rotation...

Okay, I think I'm all set on my engines. I just read everything I could find and watched countless videos on my twin screw crusaders. I'm going to proceed old school.

Re: Before and After Topside Color Scheme

Remarkably all of the paint on my boat is original from the factory, it has never been painted in 27 years. I have ideas about the color scheme as I've shared above but I'm without one. I did just find many photos of Marinette boats painted differently on the SITE STORE link which helps a little but...

SITE STORE / FORUM SUPPORT

Okay, I just purchased two blocks of the FORUM SUPPORT online at the SITE STORE. I encourage everyone to support this forum as best you can. I think many don't realize that there is cost involved with keeping a forum up and running and safe 24/7. I think we're just getting started with lots more goo...

Re: Twin Screw Engine Rotation...

This ebasicpower site has an excellent FAQ section plus so much more. Good resource material. The more I drill down and read about twin screw engines the more I realize there is actually quite a few differences between a Left Hand and a Right Hand rotating engine. I made the mistake at looking at th...
