Re: Propane Tank for Freedom 32

I have one that recently wouldn't seal but the tank is 17 years old and starting to show corrosion so I'm planning to buy a new one. West Marine sells the tall, 5 lb Worthington cylinders for $230. It might be a little pricy but I don't mess with sketchy high pressure containers that can kill ya. Pl...

Re: Bow Protector

Hey Erik. It's nice to see this is all done. What a fantastic job! Hope you've been able to get out on the bay.

Re: F28 (Mull) refrigeration

You got it, Jeff! Just give me a little time to get the order in for the new one. Quinn's is still not open except for take out, I think, but the new property manager has been fixing up the buildings and the grounds including the marina. It's looking super nice. Please check back in a few weeks. Hop...

Re: F28 (Mull) refrigeration

It's an Adler Barber Cold Machine. For what it's worth, I am probably a month or two away from pulling mine and replacing the whole system. It draws something like 6 amps, which is too much for my one solar panel to handle on overcast days at sea. Happy to send you all the pieces (compressor, tubing...

Re: F28 (Mull) refrigeration

There should be a compressor nearby. Mine is in the cockpit locker up against the wall behind the icebox, but I have a 38. See if you can trace the copper tubing that goes from the back of icebox. Maybe the compressor was removed and the cooling plate was left as is. It is not difficult to replace t...

Re: F32: what are these “circular cutouts” on the deck?

The biggest problem with these is if the boat is not "trimmed" properly. If the boat is "down by the head" or "down by the stern," water will puddle forward or aft of the the recess. Not to hijack this thread, but I'm curious as to what's the alternative. On my F38, it does not have any drains on t...

Re: Freedom 40/40 taking on water only while engine running

After tracking down multiple avenues for leaks over the years, this past weekend, I realized that a small weep is coming from the starboard cockpit drain fitting. They've never been replaced since I've owned Kynntana for the past 7 years and they look original. She turned 32 on Saturday so I'd say t...

Re: Yanmar Parts

Hey Mike, hope you and your family are all doing well. I recently purchased Yanmar parts from Svens. They only get these shipments in twice a month (15th and 30th, I think) though that might also have changed recently given overall delivery issues. It's also not exactly an easy drive for you so let ...

Re: Companionway hatch cover rebuild

Ditto what Mike said! This was a most excellently executed and documented project. I've been meaning to pull the cover over my companionway hatch for a while now because I plan to mount a life raft. Every bolt that I've pulled over the years has been over drilled and filled with epoxy before getting...

Re: Cabin top cracking around the mast step

For the cabin top crazing, I suggest you check all the bolts underneath the deck collar. I'd been having some stress cracks at the traveller and found the nuts underneath were working loose. I am adding a backing plate just to give it extra rigidity, but have come to believe that bigger washers and ...
