  1. I've been struggling to find the source of water in my bilge - hadn't checked the sump box yet. Will now and thanks for the insight on the repair

    Nice video tour. Man that boat has a lot of storage space for its size!
  3. Maxrider, if you want to be confrontational and in someone's face, Facebook and Twitter await you. We prefer to have healthy, respectful exchanges here.
  4. That overhead pic is fantastic!! That is why we boat (well, at least one of the reasons) Thanks for sharing
  5. I also did a try before I buy from this guy - reasonable rental fee if you are hesitant to jump in and buy right away https://handymanstoolcrib.com/whats-in-the-crib%3F
  6. The cycling I was referring to is when a fixture is in use. Prior to the accumulator, the pump would turn on as soon as you opened any fixture. Now there is some capacity so that it only turns on every other usage of a faucet
  7. No issues with pressure, flow, etc. I might recommend looking for the next size up of accumulator though. I still cycle the pump a little more than I would like. It all depends on how much space you have (mine is behind the fridge in the galley down below so not a lot to work with unless I did a lot of tubing rework)
  8. My parts manual was not specific to the make/model of the pump itself, but this is what I had in my 330 which I ultimately replaced https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O8B3WM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Food for thought - I also added a small accumulator downstream of the pump in an effort to limit the cycling https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000O8D5XM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. +1 Mine is made of starboard, not metal
  10. Have you reached out to any local canvas shops in your area? If you have your original, any canvas person can duplicate
  11. The first thing you need to know is whether you already have a 2000 bus connected to your chartplotter. If you do, connection to it is easier than connecting to the 183 - simply a matter of a new T connector (which may have come with the radio)
  12. My 330 has a master electronics switch at the helm which powers up the Garmin and the VHF - you have me thinking on what that circuit is rated for. Will check when I head down later today or tomorrow
  13. I'm a big fan of both Regal and Formula - keep in mind that my perspective is on cruisers. Formula layout below decks is fantastic (34PC & up). Regal was my first so holds a special spot - and it didn't disappoint either - fit, finish, performance - just too small for our use. But one thing I really like on my 330 Sig over both Regal & Formula is the mate seat at the help. My wife actually gets a bigger seat than I do. Not a fan of that typical port side lounger that you find in most cruisers.
  14. I would prefer the unused accessory switch and would not recommend direct to battery. And connecting to your chartplotter using the NMEA 2000 bus is a good idea as it will enable the DSC features - you will need to register your radio and get an MMSI number through Boat US
