Thanks Keith and Tom. I’m going to order a Mantis hook.
No you don't have to, but some pink will be wasted if you don't.
Tides seals do not need to be winterized, but if you clamp the line off, after you shut down the engines and remove the clamp, all the pink in the engine from the gear cooler up (gear cooler, crossover hoses and pipe, and heat exchanger) will drain out through the shaft seal(s) anyway. I prefer to clamp.
Thx! Your response prompts another concern. If winterizing in the water will seawater travel in reverse through the shaft seals and hoses back up into the engine, thus displacing the antifreeze, if the lines aren't clamped? I'll be winterizing in water then pulled the next day.
Yes, up to the static water line. Winterizing in the water requires removing and plugging the shaft seal lines and fittings
Mine never had a stopper. I use bridle all the time.
There he is...
Better yet, I've learned a lot of $hit from you guys. Where have you been?
If it does fail I think the line will just slide thru the thimble - you will still have the bridle taking the load. No risk to the boat.
Wow! makes a strong case to add the hatch and take a look.
This will be a project during this winter's to do list. Ill post my findings.
It was quite the shocker to me. This picture is what I had after removal of the plug. You can see sawdust floating on the water inside the walk way.
Here are the fuel shut off valves locations. They sit on top of the tanks. The rear valves are somewhat hard to get to.
Thanks for taking the time to take and post these pictures. I’m quite sure those are the valves I turned off. I’ll need to spend a bit more time investigating my tanks.
I'm still around, just some life events kept pulling me away from my time on the forum. The old technical issue with notifications not working doesn't help either. At least in the past it was working sometimes, now I never get any updates when threads have new posts or I get a PM. Unless I scan the site manually, I'm out of the loop.
Beautiful boat!! Congrats!!
So the admiral wants underwater lights. I’m a little resistant as I rather not drill more holes in the boat. For now I am entertaining the idea but can’t seem to find the right locations. Any ideas? Per the photo we have a stern thruster and hydraulic platform that eats up most of the transom space.
I have 4 transom lights on mine. My center lights are to the left and right of the platform struts. I have a pod coming out between the struts but it is the same without the pod. It looks like you have room in the same place to between your struts and stern thruster.
The outside lights on the area outside of the trim tabs. Here is what it looks like in the water. I don’t have a great pick of the boat out of the water but here is one that you can see the starboard outside light and the center lights.
Thanks Jeremy, The ones in the corners seem to be close to the edge. Didn't think they could mount them so close.
Those were where the factory ones were installed. I changed them from halogen lights to LED. As long as there is access in the bilge then you are fine. Lumitec Seablaze only require a small hole around 1/2” for the wire to go through so you are not cutting away a lot of material in the transom
See attached locations of our Underwater lights. These are the factory locations then replaced with LED.
