Re: SD-20 Zinc Anodes

Thanks, Bill.

I tried the port side chain plate for my grouper - I don't think it was working very well. I will try the port side stern rail this summer.

PS - sorry Hull #250 - I am Hull #240 :o

SD-20 Zinc Anodes

This may be a duplicate thread . . . I would describe myself as a diligent J 109 owner when it comes to maintaining my boat. That said, I rely on a professional boat yard to make sure that all of the mechanical issues on the boat are addressed - including complete maintenance in and out of season. I...

Re: rudder collar repair

There are a lot of experts on this forum - and I am sure they will weigh in. But I would not go anywhere with the collar looking like that. I would worry about too much potential movement of the rudder post that may cause damage to other parts of the rudder system.

Re: 12V freezer/fridge

I always have a problem with my refrigeration turned up to high. Yesterday I found a frozen bottle of Evian on the shelf. Granted I am plugged in while I am not using the boat. Have you tried turning down the temp?

Edson Steering Wheel

I have hull #240 - built in 2005. When I bought the boat - the lock nut just inside the wheel hub used to wiggle loose. We added some loctite and it stayed in place. If my memory is correct, the lock nut did not rotate when you turned the wheel. Now it does - and the wheel always has some play in it...

Re: Bubbles

Thanks. I bit frustrating after all of this time. I suppose I will need to have the hull tapped to see what else is lurking beneath.

This just happened to Hull #240 - 2005 vintage. Has anyone seen anything similar? Yard thinks it was a void beneath the gelcoat that had water in it than froze. I am a little skeptical . . .
