Re: Overhead 12 Volt DC Accessory Panel Restoration

Jcbwell, Twenty One (21) circuit breakers on the overhead accessory panel. Seventeen 10 amp breakers and four 15 amp breakers. I installed the four 15 amp breakers on the Windlass, Trim Tabs, Fuse Block No.1 and Fuse Block No. 2. Everything else got 10 amp breakers.

Re: Overhead 12 Volt DC Accessory Panel Restoration

CaptainOpus, The two heavy yellow wires were already laced into the wiring harness from the factory for an option that was not installed (What option they were intended for I have no idea).

Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separator Model 299

Today I removed both of the Perko Fuel Filter/Water Separators out of my 32' Sedan. They are stamped Perko Model 299. These are in my opinion a very robust, old school design and I'm not getting rid of them, in fact I really appreciate the quality that went into their design and manufacture. They bo...

Re: Options for LED lighting / conversion

I replaced all of the 12 Volt incandescent interior lights aboard my 1990 32' Sedan with LEDs. I installed six of the brass ones as follows: Four in the main salon, one over the dinette and I added a sixth one in the V-Berth. Purchased them at West Marine, pricey but I am really satisfied with the a...

Re: Removing water from gas tank

Marinette was looking ahead when they configured their tank placement. They arranged things so the tanks could be removed with the back deck on. There is an aluminum vertical support that is bolted in, not welded, once this is removed you are able to rotate the tanks out and up. I pumped out sixty g...
