Re: Striping

Measured from the bow to the stern every foot from the bottom of the rub rail to the bottom of the stripe, it taper's, not only did I write it down I snapped pictures with my phone.

Re: Hard to start?

Bulb's are...

Re: Cable Steering

On second thought wondering if you could not use a drill pump after the actuating cylinder, connected to the bleed valves, to really move the fluid through all the lines. I am of the opinion most of the problem with bleeding is the slow movement of the fluid, if it moved faster it would push the air...

Re: Cable Steering

What kind of fluid did you use, I used aircraft hydraulic fluid, it fell well within specs, friend of mine uses power steering fluid. Of the opinion most of my trapped air came from the compensating line. SeaStar has an electric pump system to aid in bleeding, think its only available to dealers tho...

Re: Cable Steering

Good move, how’d you bleed the system? Mine was a real pain, took several times.

Re: Raw Water Intake

You sure you don't have one already? My 32 has not only an intake for the toilet but a discharge too. Discharge is capped off, everything now goes to a holding tank, have considered using the the old discharge as an intake for a washdown pump.

Re: Trim Tabs

Make sure they're working properly, your getting full RELIABLE travel. One day mine would would work fine the next only one would work, the next day they'd stick one up one down. With the exception of the tabs themselves I gutted out the entire system and replaced with new, good money spent.

Re: Fuel economy

What's that? All kidding aside mine does fairly well cruising around 2400-2600, 16-18 mph, about a mile to the gallon. We recently ran a steady 2000-2200 rpm's for a solid five hours with some higher rpm's from time to time and burned about 50 gallons.

Re: Voltage Regulator

Think Arco also sells a regulator, and yes it's under the black plastic cover, on the backside.
