  1. Hey, need some advice. We have been loving the boat and this is our second season. Admiral is starting to want to stay more in the coves vs the dock at night. Main problem is our Generator(Kohler 5E) is located right behind the aft cabin wall(where our ears are). It has a sound dampening cabinet already. I was thinking of putting some more sound proofing material on the outside of that. Have any of you used such a product and what was it. Thanks.

    Trim Switch

    I replaced those last weekend and still having issues. I am going to check that connection you told me about as well as check the relays that wingnut had suggested to me.
  3. +1 on the shop vac. I have a little red one I picked up at WallMart that I leave in the dock box. I think its a half gallon, not much but because of its size it fits easily in the dock box.

    FYI, if you look in the pictures that Shepherd1 sent you will see Item #6, those are the solenoids.

    Trim Switch

    Thanks. Yes just one pump that I am having problems with and yes I do have the control unit that is in the first pictures. I am going to try and get back up there tomorrow and I will see about the wires then.

    Trim Switch

    I would be more than happy to do that. I should get back up to the boat tomorrow and get some pics for you.

    Trim Switch

    I was able to jump the wires on the old and new solenoids and it works fine. Wingnut has told me that it could be relays that are bad. This happened on my old Chaparral but that was a volvo. Says there is a 4 gang relay box, does anyone know where that is located on my setup(see sig). Thanks

    Trim Switch

    Replaced the "up" and "down" solenoids and still the trim will not go down. I am wondering if the switch on the throttle has gone bad. Can those be replaced or do I have to replace to whole control assembly? Any one had similar issues?
  9. +1 on the continuous sound. Mine sound per engine. I turn the key on each engine and get a long beep that goes away and then I crank the motor. Hoteo is correct about one possibility. check the drive fluid reservoir.
  10. Good point. I'm going to try it out and then think about the insulation route. Probably will use freezer packs as well to help keep the ice.
  11. Yes it is. PO had it done and it is really nice I must say. Whoever did the work did an excellent job. It is sealed tight.
  12. which one, the guy in the tow vehicle...............
  13. I have my fenders and lines all tied on the bow rails(using the "fendergrip"). I have an extra anchor for the stern in the trunk and am thinking of storing my floats in there as well. That way maybe we have plenty of cooler space/storage for a long day/weekend on the water. I am going to try this and I will let you know how it does.
  14. been out 5-6 times already this season. just got "new to us" cruiser so i could not stay and dock any longer had to go out. 714 hours on this one and 900+ on the old one i sold(which ran like a flipn top) get out and use the boats.......................its a necessary evil.
  15. you and I are the same page with storage on our boats. especially for me coming from my sunesta where had more storage than I knew what to do with. my problem now is I have floats to bring back on board as summer heat is approaching and know that storage is for my life jackets. I thought about putting the life jacket in a bag and then under the aft seat so its out of the way.......where/what are you storing in the cockpit.
  16. reading a post that Chappy has got me thinking. Does anyone use the Port storage area for a cooler? Mine is plastic lined with a drain hole that drains overboard. Seems like it might be good as an extra cooler instead of storage. Seems like it was meant to be either storage(wet gear) or cooler. If so, how does it work, meaning does it stay cold and keep ice decent enough for a day trip.
  17. WOT...........what does that mean I just normally run CAD (Cruise and Drink). however I changed my plugs and caps earlier in the year, mine were quite that bad, but definitely glad I replaced them all. seems to run much better and smoother.
  18. Chappy I too am in the thought process of doing this. let me know what you decide and how you did it. I would be interested to see and hear the results.
  19. Yes.....and no one will give an answer to the question. Toddler answered there was nothing wrong, so why throw it away. Are we on the government forum.
  20. WOW...................I knew most of this just because I've been boating for so long, however this type of boat is new to me and the information you just provided makes a great deal of sense now considering what I have been experiencing. Thanks.
  21. just call joe at cecil marine. that is who he is referring to. I have seen those vents on their website before. http://cecilmarine.com
  22. guess maybe depends on how much you are going to visit/is the boat while mooring. I would think maybe not as much as someone like me who has it stored in the water yet at a wet slip in a marina. For that reason I use the camper package so if it is cool/cold still before summer hits we can enjoy the boat still. Mine also has a cockpit cover that I will probably use when it warms up more and the pollen goes away as I will take the camper enclosure down to take advantage of a breeze while at the slip or out on the hook in a cove. I really think its all about personal preference and what your situation is. Good Luck........
  23. Thanks. I was afraid it would not be simple. Thats my luck...........
