CP-27's / Re: Fuel tank replacement
« Last post by Jma1_nemo on Yesterday at 11:57:44 PM »
I removed and cleaned my tank last fall. There was already a clean-out port on top and all it is, is a round aluminum plate with many drilled and tapped holes. I went to NAPA & bought a sheet of fuel gasket material for $2 bucks and cut it to fit the plate. I would guess that the PO took a large hole saw and made the hole and then cut a plate to cover it. Seems that could be done for quite a bit less than $100 bucks. Will post a pic as soon as I find it.

Susan:
  There are inexpensive hotels in the area. Mas or Pedro should be able to fill you in about the wheres and whats. Consider driving down. For me it's 6 hours and I'd do it if were twice that, which it may well be for you!

Mike,
  I printed the spec sheet from SailboatData.Com, the est. forestay length was 6" longer than what I actually measured. So be careful. You might want to take your old rigging off and have someone match it. Probably the safest, easiest way. Give Thomas Hardware in Grosse Pointe Park a call. They do the work in-house. I've heard good things about them.

Weil July is looking to be a full month for all and I know it is difficult to plan when a date is not set in stone but truly wish to have the most folks able to come. The 8/5 date is proposed as it was the marina party that was/is convenient for the group to tie in with and meet some very not yachty sailors at our marina. Pedro and Bob can speak to the group/party there and Tim, Vickie, Kevin and Lisa have at least been to the marina and Merrior and know the lay of the land (or sea as it may be!) in case we wish to go there on another date later in August. Good chance Wayne may be in a slip there at that time, so there goes the "we are the only Compac at Regent". Merrior does have nice floating docks so small craft could tie up if we break out dinghies and kayaks to go by sea (100yds or so across our creek). Maybe we could buy Pedro dinner if he takes us all with his tug! We can also simply do our own cookout and party as there are good facilities for it if another date is desired. 

The goal is to continue the interesting bonds that arrived in the ownership of our craft and celebrate. Weigh in all. As it stands now we have 8/5 penciled in. It is the week after BBB, for which I am getting my anchor shined one way or the other!

Sun Cats / Re: Simrad TP10 repair question
« Last post by ghsfusioneer on Yesterday at 07:16:06 PM »
Thanks for the thoughts.  I think my TP10 was purchased new in 2014, so it should be up to speed regarding software upgrades.  And, alas, it won't power up at all now.  If I can't find anyone to repair it, it will be placed in Davy Jones' locker.  SC's are fun to hand steer anyway.

The fuel gauge is mounted under the companionway step next to the racor fuel filter.  I don't really need to be looking at it much.  It does have a backlight.
I mounted it in a standard automotive instrument pod https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E4KRIO8/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 .   The second hole is for a digital voltmeter so that I can check battery voltages, I haven't mounted it yet.

Note also the fuse bank mounted above the main breaker panel.  I feed the instrumentation (fuel gauge, depthsounder, autopilot, etc) from one 15 amp breaker labelled "Instruments"  in the original panel, to this fuse bank, where each instrument is then individually fused.  If I lose one, I don't lose them all.  I will be mounting a hinged lexan guard/cover plate over these fuses.

I'm gonna pencil August 5th. As mentioned, the previous weekend is the 11th annual epic Barnegat Bay Bash!! The only other date I am committed to (or should be committed) is July 22nd, the Blackburn Challenge.

Lake James is beautiful - I took my 19 up there for a day once. There was no wind whatsoever so we motored. It has the deepest water I've ever seen in a lake. Less than 100' from the dock the water was 180' deep. We saw depths of 220' in other spots. I thought my depth finder had lost its mind.
