Engine and Drive Train / throttle cable end
« on: October 18, 2022, 12:58:08 PM »
I have an Volvo MD11c.  The throttle control cable end, that connects to the ball on throttle shaft is shot.  It is also plastic.  I am looking for replacement or part number.  Any help would be appreciated.

It looks better in person.  I love it, you have to get one.  I think I am going to paint the background the same color of my hull (Dark blue).  I will let you know how it turns out.  Painted today...

If I wanted to post a short video of sailing, how do I go about it.  Every time I try to do it the whole post goes away.  I even tried to shorten the video  but no help.

P40 / Pearson 40

I was looking and thinking about a Pearson 40 with a flush deck.  What are your thoughts about this vessel.  At the price I have seen I might just be dreaming.  It look's fast just sitting at the dock.

Standing & Running Rigging and Fitting/Tuning / Boom Vang
« on: May 01, 2018, 09:55:00 PM »
Just got a killer deal on a Boom Vang.  Want to know what type of attachment points should I get?  Like the boom should I just get a one bolt boom bail and what size?  Also the mast, should I get something that will move to both sides or a mast hound.  It is a soft Vang.  Don't want to spend a lot but would like something descent, is that possible?   I will be installing this myself.  Thank You for the input.   Dick

After fixing- prop,prop shaft, strut, skeg, motor mounts while the insurance company was paying to have it out what a good time to repaint the bottom and polish her up.  Was also able to go out and see the eclipse.  Feels good to be able to go sailing again.  Sure was a long month...

While tied to the city docks in Wilmington, NC last Saturday night 4 or 5 large logs hit our boat while sleeping.  Sometime during the night one went under the dock and in between our skeg and prop.  An hour later we got it out.  have to take her out of the water soon to check the damage.  prop, motor mounts, rudder, fiberglass, bottom ect.  Check out the pictures the log was 34' long .  She is a tough old girl and got me home 54 miles away...

« on: April 12, 2017, 04:26:11 PM »
Just received a new in the box Johnson Pump 10-35157-3 (F35B-9) for my MD11C.  Also an raw water pump seal kit (needed the o-ring) for $153.56 that's including shipping.  From  ASAP Supplies Inc. in the UK.  Found them online, just wanted to spread the word.  Thought it was a good deal.  Can't get pictures off the phone just yet will send them later.  Sail-on DICK
