    Tips and Tricks to Remove/Re-bed Bow Harware

    We have a 380 with a Progress 1, so assuming you have the same. There are a few things to remove on the topside of the windlass (watch youtube for that). I found I could reach most nuts inside the locker from the outside, BUT I could not reach the port side nuts to the windlass itself without...

    Weave Floor Coverings...snap in replacement

    FWIW, I didn't do snaps OR hook & loop...I can always add the snaps later if I have to. So far, after our first full season with the new woven carpets, we have found they really don't move around much, if any.

    Weave Floor Coverings...snap in replacement

    We replaced our 2000 era berber with weave from Corinthian. Great people to work with (plus a discount when you mention you are a CSR member!). Initially, I "traced" my existing berber onto 6 mil plastic, but was unhappy with how far off the resulting templates were when I rough fit in my...

    Bottom Paint

    I had a bunch behind my transom anode, a few on my trim tabs, and a few in the recesses where the shafts go through the hull...nothing more than last year (or the year before).

    Bottom Paint

    Question on bottom painting frequency...last done in March 2020 using Sea Hawk Cukote. Boat did not go into the water that year until July thanks to covid. So 2.5 seasons on the paint. Just hauled out and not very "hairy" - quite comparable to haulout 2022 & 2021 - so copper/poison must still...

    NEED INPUT: ICE MAKER OR 2nd FRIDGE? What is better?

    For true ice aficionado's, double boil some water (preferably spring water), pour into some 2" square silicone ice cube makers, freeze, and serve your favorite bourbon on the crystal clear "rock"!

    NEED INPUT: ICE MAKER OR 2nd FRIDGE? What is better?

    We had the same decision to make this year when our cockpit icemaker quit working, and we went with a fridge in the cockpit (and a bag of ice in a cooler/insulated bag for the mixed drink makers). You can't overestimate the convenience of NOT going down to the main fridge to get a cold beverage :)

    Hi ttmott, what do you call that part that is attached to the shackle? And where did you get it? Thank you.

    didn't prime changed fuel filters

    I had the same thing happen to me last fall when I replaced my fuel filters (which I had not pre-filled). Twin 454 Horizons. Quite frustrating to say the least. I just kept trying to start the engines every couple of minutes so as to not fry the starters. Eventually, they fired. Next time...

    Where's the GFCI for the outlet in my cockpit locker?

    If I recall, that outlet is controlled by EITHER the GFCI outlet in the bathroom OR the one under the microwave/behind the sliding door. I'd try the bathroom one first. When my cockpit icemaker seized and blew the outlet it was plugged in to, it also took out the plug to which you are referring.

    Replacing old stereo with a modern Bluetooth stereo. Need recommendations

    A qualified yes...I had to enlist the help of a "techy guy" on my dock. I know we did not touch/change any of the cabling on the amp end. That being said, the wiring that came with the MS-BB100 was very well labeled, but I did not watch the final connections that were made.

    Replacing old stereo with a modern Bluetooth stereo. Need recommendations

    I installed a Fusion MS-BB100 and was able to keep my factory original amp. I also replaced all my cockpit speakers with Clarion 6.5" CMSP-651-SWG and sub with Clarion CMSP-101RGB (comes in 2ohm or 4ohm, so you'll have to determine which one you need). I've been quite happy.

    Windshield screw cover

    If I recall, when I replaced mine last year with this exact part from FP, I installed with the flat side down, and then pushed the curved side up into the track. I ultimately had to push/pull it around until it sat in the track how I wanted. NOTE: Be sure to cut it long as it will shrink...

    Here's a question for the CSR group...I have a Norcold DE0061 and need to replace the front panel inserts. 2 emails and a voicemail to Norcold over the past week to check availability and no reply. Anyone know a good source? Ideally, I'd like to get Cherry panels. TIA

    Draft question

    Stee, my transducer is mounted in the bottom of the hull (like yours probably), so my comments are based on depth from bottom - thus my "pucker" comment :)
