    E32-3 Not so difficult after all: Zipper Pull Replacement

    Puzzling through some leaks, installing electronics and sometime soon (hopefully) pulling the mast to re-do lighting rigging, and a host of other stuff. I posted some questions about my headliner woes in the forum and as expected, got helpful feedback. Pleased to report that replacing the...

    Hard Pull to Left

    My wife and I took our 30+ out for our first spin yesterday and noticed that it pulled hard to the left while under power. I suspect it's the prop, but nothing unusual was found in the underwater survey. Any thoughts? Also - I presume it best to take the main off the boom and store indoors...

    Electric Propulsion tractor pull challenge....

    Ok...I normally leave all the forums alone but I keep reading ridiculous but forceful rants about comparing horsepower in engines to electric motors. Horsepower is simply meaningless to actual useful power. 33,000ft-lbs./minute applied to a prop (a single horsepower) would tend to create...

I’ve also been impressed with how long this stays fresh tasting just sitting...

    Tiller pull to port

    I am looking to buy a 1983 Ericson 28+ which has a very strong pull on the tiller when motoring near top end. Is this a common problem? What can be done to lessen it? The boat has a slight list to starboard at the dock, is that a related problem or the result of full tanks on one side and not...

    E36RH Prop Strut Movement; and excessive 'pull' to port under power

    I purchased a 1982-E36-RonHolland last October. The prop strut is loose: with sideways pressure it will move about 1/8" to starboard, then return when the pressure is released. Does anyone have a drawing of the shape of the strut and how it is installed. It appears to be glassed in, with no...

    Hard Pull to Port Under Power - New Repower

    :esad: HELP: HARD PULL TO PORT UNDER POWER>>> After a year of unreliable service and constant problems from my old Yanmar seawater cooled 2QM20, I finally bit the bullet and instructed my mechanic to swap it out for a brand new Yanmar 3YM20. Rather than a return to reliable operation, I have...
