Re: Corniche packing gland

If you are going to do serious mileage then installing PSS Seals could be considered, in which case tackling the cutlass bearings at the same time should also be considered. I have a spec for doing this on the Turbo 36. A pig of a job, but PSS do not leak at all. On mine the PSS mount to the old gla...

Re: Turbo 36 hull thickness

I have replaced skin fittings and recall that around 9-10mm is probably about right. Not cored on the hull.

This was also about the thickness where the upper cutlass bearings are mounted.

A modern boat will be more lightly laid.

Re: anyone updated to nmea 2000 output?

I assume you have tried Noland. I import industrial control systems already from Florida, and fancied trying to sell these things to the Marine industry. I bought several RS11 units last year, but due to the inordinate price couldn't find any takers, and ended up selling them below cost, and general...

Re: anyone updated to nmea 2000 output?

Where are you based and what engines. I would expect your oil pressure and water temp levels / scales will be similar to mine (VP TAMD60C). My tachos are driven by an inductive pick up. I can try and find out what I set the counter scales to. Bear in mind also the scales are reversed inasmuch as the...

Re: anyone updated to nmea 2000 output?

Mine has worked faultlessly since I first installed it, never had reason to review the settings.

Are your connections tight ?

How have you set it up ?

Re: How are starb. and astern lantern connected in Fairline

I would check for voltage at each lamp fitting first - could just be dirty contacts at the bulbs. If nothing on the bulb connections, then connect a long piece of wire to battery negative then check again for 12v + at the lamp fitting. If yes then on the other connection check the Neg resistance, us...

Re: Turbo 36 switches

Please let us know exactly what you manage to obtain. OK for now but the ETA selection list is quite extensive.

Re: Turbo 36 switches

I think they are ETA 3120 series.

I have a manual for them but my ipad won't allow me to past dropbox links.

Re: Corniche speed

If your engines hit max revs and into a 15 knot headwind and fair sea presumably I would say She is running very well. When my props were fouled my engines just could not get to full power, and by end of last season the boat was struggling to plane, so this Winter I have made major efforts to sort t...

Re: Fairline 36 turbo

I took the water feed from the bottom of the after-cooler, with a rise to just below the deck level to prevent syphoning. The instructions that come with the PSS suggest anywhere a feed can be obtained will suffice, and this was convenient. Been on for 1.5 seasons now and all working fine. I calcula...

Re: Anchor Winch Circuit Breaker

On my Turbo it is in the engine bay, close to the batteries. just in front of the stbd engine The stbd battery pair serve the windlass. Follow the cables from the battery to the isolation switches then the CB might be nearby.

Re: House keeping

I leave my seacocks open, just try to exercise them all several times each year. Make sure all your pipes are double clipped. If you start an engine with a seacock shut you could be half way out of your marina before you wreck the pump, and a mile or so out when you open her up to discover your error.
