    Marinco 220v 50 Cycle shore inlet. But why

    My 1996 400db had line 1 shore power converted to 240v for Australia before I bought it. I have figured out just about everything as to how it works, a sweet combination of the original 110v generator and 110v appliances , as well as 240v sockets and a hunk of an isolating transformer that can...

    I posted this recently on a generator install in a different boat type. It might give you some ideas on a gantry. Post in thread '40 sedan bridge forum' https://clubsearay.com/index.php?threads/40-sedan-bridge-forum.53961/post-1452573

    Will you need to take the boat on one engine anywhere, there’s something about jury rigging cooling on the drip less to stop overheating on the shaft not in use

    90s System Monitor Wiring

    Hi, did you resolve this. My monitor stops working sometimes, I suspect voltage sensitivity , but I may have to remove it to have a look. Whether wiring on my 400 is similar I don’t know but I can photo it if you think it will help you

    If it was behind the tv it’s not now, no remnant of it. Maybe it’s below the tv box floor. (I’m turning that tv box into a cupboard as per your solution with a flat screen swinging out on the door)

    Guest cabin A/C. Anyone know the route the air takes from the unit under the master bed to the outlet in the guest cabin. I get nothing , I suspect the PO removed that ducting or impeded it when he put a steel tube in as part of an added crane on the foredeck . I just wanted to check if it’s...

    Lithium Iron Phosphate battery charging from engine alternators

    Out of interest when you say wired into generator output, do you mean you wired into an existing generator circuit Dc to dc setups apparently have a loss factor in terms of lost energy, but only purists care I think

    Fuel Filter primer pump

    Did you resolve this. On my 400 the primer to starboard is close to the crankcase breather, on port it’s near the forward bulkhead above the fuel filter . I.e searay made sure they are accessible for both engines

    Australia- CAT 3116 oil (no rotella here and brand names are different )

    thanks all, Shell Rimula is a thing. As multigrade is now acceptable and as I have a non aftercooler set of 3116s, I reckon multigrade is the way to go for me, with all its fan dangle claims about engine life extending etc. And suddenly the infamous Rotella I read so much about seems to be an...

    Ah I see. Hopefully you don’t have screws because the fasteners broke :)

    btw 2nd inline muffler I assume is fine for Gas but I read somewhere it's not recommended by Westerbeke for Diesel because of back pressure.

    Australia- CAT 3116 oil (no rotella here and brand names are different )

    The oil discussion CAT DEO, SAE etc has been well and truly hammered and were I in the USA I would have all the answers . Here in Australia for my 3116 the CAT oils are available and are an option I may well chose. But to compare, I wondered what other Australian (and maybe NZ ) owners are...

    Buying advice

    You’ll see marinas full of Rivieras and the like as they can go out further than your potential searay. In close to coast short trips the searay I expect will be fine. Get vhf licence and marine licence and ais and all safety gear epirb etc anyway I suggest. Make sure the range is enough for...

    I agree, the Boogaboo videos on searay hatch and window reseals I am sure i will use one day. iMHO I wouldn’t use his gel coat polish technique, and looking at the pin stripe removal video I might not try that , looks fraught .

    Thanks Bill, next time on the boat I’ll gingerly get in there and have a go, hopefully the guest cabin roof won’t give way under my 82kg

    Ideally i need to remove the trim at the bottom of the interior of the windscreen, to fix up the vinyl which is coming off. Question is, will it come out without removing anything else, it sits under the trims on the windscreen surrounds hoping i don't have to remove those
