1DCF1E63-9B76-46F9-BE80-2D4BD3577BAD.jpeg My previous post described my loss of water pressure at all faucets. After waxing the hull yesterday I followed up on that issue - disconnected the outflow hose from the water pump, attached a longer hose and led it to a bucket. Flipped the breaker and just...

I had a Sabre 34 once and had eyebrows on the coach roof - Sabre had exact drawings of the eyebrow profile. I replaced mine and one other boat's pieces. You need a dimensional profile of the eyebrow, take it to a wood shop company and have them tool it.... suggestion... The eyebrow theory being that...

On 2 previous boats with teak interiors I applied tung oil once a year- wipe on wipe off with a clean cloth. A couple of coats. Easy and looks great. Your stain areas probably from water damage(?) - try rubbing some tung oil on to see if that does it by itself - seems to me if I can remember, that w...

Love the boat. EF04D0C9-AD24...
Bad - “check the pump valves”... do you mean the outflow hose end - as in remove the outflow hose and then check the water flow with switch on? Thanks. Right my pump stays on extraordinarily long. At any faucet initially water flow is great. Then the pump kicks in and within a minute flow dwindles s...
Thanks all - I earlier made sure the vented loop for the fresh water was replaced (it was badly kinked) and made sure the vent exited to the bilge - previously it wasn’t . My problem is that although the water tank acts like it’s full with overflow to the bilge the water system can act like the tank...

If no spongy resistance, open the decompression levers on the top of the motor, and yank the fan belt to turn the motor to ...
