    Anchor recommendations

    Rocna makes a very good anchor too. I replaced my Fortress with one. It has a roll bar at the top of it, so it rights it self faster. Plus if the wind shifts 180 degrees a Fortress needs to reset itself. A plow type will turn with the boat and stay set.

    2005 310 Signature

    That could be case. I am not that familiar with a 310. Do they have outdrives or v-drives? How old is the fuel? If you really think the fuel is going bad use two 6 gal outboard tanks and do a test run. I have installed racor filters just as a precaution against water and junk getting to the engines.

    Yes! What are your RPMs at idle? I only ask because my boat was doing the same thing, but at idle at times it would stall. What was really odd is that it was happening to both engines about a week apart. I changed out both fuel pumps, one just yesterday. The RPMs went from 450 at times 500 to now 600 and at times 650. It now getting on plane quicker, but time will tell. I just changed the pumps without checking the pressure. I really didn't care because I knew it was the pumps and I did the work myself. But your saying that your mechanic checked the pressure. Anyways, thats what happened to me. The funny part about that! I went on a trip were I was on plane for 4 hours, 2 one way and than back. The engines ran great even with the pumps starting to fail.

    Need specs on hot water heater Signature 320

    Isotherm makes a very good one. I replaced mine a few years ago. Stays hotter longer and used less power than the Atwood that came with the boat.
  7. If Curts idea works, great. if not...................I am thinking since the wire dropped, that a pile of wire is seating at the bottom of the arch. I would use a snake with a good size hook in it. Send it down to see if you can grab it. If not, get to the bottom of the arch where its bolted to the boat. Pull the wires back to find the end that you lost. Than send the snake UP not down to see it at the top. Tape the end of the wires to the end of the snake and pull the snake up.

    I thought that this was going to stop. Why are you getting back into this?? And who is "WE"?? As in we know who you are, I don't know............. Rambo sent nothing bad. But ask your self this, and I will use your words " WHY YOU'RE DOING THIS BUT YOU SINGLED ME OUT OF MANY OTHERS JUST TO START SOMETHING"? So why, what are you doing wrong or right you need to ask your self.
  15. Yep!! the top of the frame. In the movie, you can see the screws. I would start there.

    Chipping in bilge area

    This is not paint, if it was I would agree with you. The small job I did is over 4 years old and it is not peeling off. Remember what 3m 5500 is and you are just using to to coat a surface. The bigger thing here is, it MUST be clean.

    Chipping in bilge area

    What I did is remove everthing that is loose. No sanding, but i had a 2x2' area. I used 3M's 5500 fast cure and smoothed it on as thin as i could get. For me it worked out great. Looked brand new.

    Another way, having a closed system. No raw water in the block. Much easier to winterize. Engine will run at a constant temperature. It takes me about 1 minute to winterize each engine.

    Accessory panel

    Yep! Start at the source and work forward. Or at least a known good point.

    As to: " Do you even know what that is? It's the NMEA2K Interface to the GPS 741xs." It looks like deutsch connectors but its hard to see thought the bag. But if you say its a NMEA2K interface "OK". All I know is I did not need all that cabling from Volvo. All I need was this https://yachtdevicesus.com/products/engine-gateway-ydeg-04 and than connect it to my backbone. Never what into the engine compartment to install anything for this setup. The whole hardware install took about 3 minutes, not including the time it took me to me remove my GPS and put it back from the center of the helm. Now on another note: I have been asked though P.M.s to stop this. Gentlemen of the forum, I will hold back as one put it "you are a intellectual garbage cleaner".
  23. Maybe not, but who is doing the work. What I mean is, if a marine shop is doing the work I would ask them. I would hate to say, go ahead and something happens. But having all that work done is differently in your favor.
  24. Personally, I love a closed system. Had them in all my boats. On a 12 year old boat, I would not do it. First off the are full and half systems depending on your engine. But the real reason is, there is a lot of rust and scaling built up the the passage ways. Just take off out thermostat to see what I am talking about. This "stuff" will clog your heat exchanger.
