  2. Wonder no more...they are.
  3. I guess you love it so much that you had to make your profile name Simreknc.

    What Cruiser Would You Buy?

    Powered by 2 diesel engines and propelled by her twin screw propellers Motor yacht Lonian is capable of a top speed of 18.5 knots, and comfortably cruises at knots. She can carry around 160,000 of diesel on-board in her fuel tanks. Her water tanks store around 50,000 of fresh water. https://www.yachtcharterfleet.com/luxury-charter-yacht-53405/lonian.htm

    Aluminum Locknut in Bilge, what does it belong to?

    Those are actually pics of my boat, I was just too lazy to setup imgur so I could post them. Thanks Hatem:). I have the standard seating with the two jump seats next to the dog house. It was awfully nice of the the builder to give me a seat to sit on while working on the engine. Pull those seats out, remove the dog house and the rear bulkhead and the engine is exposed and easy to get to on all sides. I feel bad for all of you who can barely see the engine, much less get a firm grip on the component that you are trying to replace. The original purpose of the pics was to illustrate how the rear mounts are assembled and show that there 'might' be enough room to sneak the locknut back into its slot "if" you could get a hand or some other magnet tool anywhere near that area.

    How close does the pipe come to touching the ID of gimbal bearing at positions other than 1 o'clock? Trying to understand the amount of run-out.

    Sounds like coupler run-out and engine mis-alignment. If it was just engine-misalignment and coupler was true, the pipe would always be hitting the id of the gimbal at the same spot, no matter engine rotation. if you have coupler run-out and perfect engine alignment, then the pipe hitting the id of the gimbal will follow exactly as you rotate the engine. For example, pipe hitting at 1 o'clock. Rotate engine 90 degrees, pipe is now hitting at either 4 or 10 o'clock depending on which way you rotated engine.
  8. If you try to copy the current plate with Azek I would be worried that the nav light post mount would sag over time, especially after some summer heat.
  9. Looks like that plate is aluminum with an ABS plastic coating. https://www.seaviewglobal.com/products/modular-top-plates?variant=12309295169634
  10. +1. I can't believe it cracked like that either if it is indeed starboard.

    +1. Most of the AF comes in and goes right out the exhaust. I prefer to drain the block, manifolds and risers, then refill with AF. At the very least, drain the water.

    Storm damage - Can I get some help?

    Glad to see you back! Finding the molds for the arch may be nearly impossible and repair by a competent craftsman may be your only choice. Maybe find a used one as being another option. This is likely the same for the seat punctures as well. The gauges and dash panel should be covered along with the gel-coat. This drives home how important it is to have good documentation when fighting insurance companies, home, auto, boat, etc.
  14. Those things scare me. Little bit of debris holding the flaps open...down she goes.
