Re: Bridge gauges

each helm is wired individually and do not depend on each other for the boat to run. Agree. But one problem is, of course, if you leave one helm running and turn off the other, it's still running. I left the FB ignition on for one or two weeks once. Turned off the cabin, forgot and went home. whoop...

Re: exterior flooring suggestions needed

Do you (or anyone else in the forum!) have issue with the Menards Marine Grade plywood? https://www.menards.com/main/building-materials/panel-products/sanded-plywood/roseburg-ab-marine-plywood/1251597/p-1444452502726.htm I recall once reading that the term "marine grade" sometimes doesn't...

Re: exterior flooring suggestions needed

Consider leaving an expansion joint or two if you like that product. You can caulk the joint with something flexible or leave the perimeter a tad short. If it buckles when it expands, that's different and not good. I forgot the Nautolex name, thanks for reminding me. yep, it's tough stuff and with e...

Re: 32 Sedan Adding Air Conditioning

I do not know where the exhaust exits for the generator! At the transom it has 2 for the engines, and 1 in the center? The one in the center looks small, maybe bilge pump?

Re: 32 Sedan Adding Air Conditioning

Did you have a single 30 amp cord? or 2- 30 amp cords? We had two 30 amp feeds. Boat was equipped that way but I can't say whether it was from factory or dealer. I was second owner. Ii suspect that one line served AC and the other hot water/stove. Interior lighting was minor draw, not sure which ck...
