RE: Island Gypsy

I had a Goat in 65 but for the world of me I am not able to remember any vibrations for carbon. The Goat did vibrate a time of two in a drive in movie.....

Island Gypsy

A good photo essay on overhauling bronze tapered cone seacocks can be found here: http://www.pbase.com/mainecruising/boat_projects The article you want is in the third row down on the left, "Servicing tapered cone seacocks."

RE: Island Gypsy

What a great site for information. Now I have another 2 days worth of reading while I travel to Arizona to get a little warm weather and sun. Michigan had some strange weather this year. Not much snow, but cold. I'm hoping for a 70 degree April and that is goes up from there.

RE: Island Gypsy

Can you do the heat exchanger while in the water or do you have to have the boat on the "Hard"

have not had much chance reading the site but will do so in a few days.

Peter:
I removed and serviced the heat exchangers (engine & gear) while the boat was in the water. I took them to a radiator shop and they cleaned them out, repainted, and installed new gaskets, total cost was $75 or so. I wouldn't clean them myself as I figured I'd mess something up on their insides.

RE: Island Gypsy

Fantastic link, Marin. It was good to read an alternative opinion of how to bed deck hardware. Great info.

RE: Island Gypsy

Have not had a chance to check the one in my IG, but the old Navy Capt. took great care of the boat and retired from boating at age 90.

I'll take care of the thing when I get to Grand Haven, MI. There I have tools and by than it will be 40 degree warmer.

*In fairness, I did not discover this link myself.* It was posted here some time ago by someone else as part of a seacock discussion.* I don't want to assign credit where credit is not due, but I would not be surprised if the original post with the link was from Keith down in Texas as he has posted a lot of really useful links to good info over the years.

But regardless of who found it and gave us the link the first time, it wasn't me.

Happy to pass it on, though.

If you don't mind, I'll take my beer anywhere around Grand Haven, Michigan

RE: Island Gypsy

The only beer you'd ever get out of me is a Guinness. If you don't like Guinness, no beer for you.

RE: Island Gypsy

Guinness will do just fine, been drinking that for years...

Have some cemetary lots in Seattle I have to sell some day.* Will stop by and take you up on the offer.

Sea Cocks done

Just an update somewhat late. I used the Gibbs spray and the cocks work perfect. Thanks for all the info.
