Thanks. The boat is a 1994 and has been well maintained. There isn't any point in the systems where there is evidence of a leak such as discoloration, filmy surface, etc. I will follow your...

I have a Sabreline 36 Fast Trawler. Recently, after a run I have been getting a very strong raw diesel fuel smell notably on the starb side. It dissapates over the next day or so. Trust me, it's...

I installed a SE 100, 24v on its own charger on my Sabreline 36. I have not regretted it. It has plenty of thrust to move the boat in all conditions. I would not go bigger. When I hit the...

Oil

I have CAT 3116 diesels--vintage 1994. The manual specifies single viscosity 30wt or 40wt, and explains briefly that the multi-viscosity oils have undesireable additives for this motor.

POACH is a 1994 Sabreline 36 Fast Trawler with twin 300 Cats. It's a tri-cabin. It is very comfortable at 8-9kt, but it's nice to be able to make a speed run at 16+ when I need to. I think...

Thanks. The windlass motor breaker I found. It's a push-pull on off, I would guess at least 90A, possibly 135A. It cuts the power to the windlass entirely.

As for the new switches, does it...

I have twins screws, but I always back into my moorage. It eliminates concern for cross winds. And the way I analogize it is that it's like front-wheel drive, pulling rather than pushing. Because I...
