Kluk kluk kluk sound

Hi Rene;

I saw you wrote a long time ago that you had a kluk sound in your hull.
It can be in the hoses were the wiring is going from the transom locker to the console (offcourse if you have under deck wiring)
There is not much to do, except when you are driving the boat it comes out in the transom locker and than you can empty it from there ones in a while and than it will disapere as long as it does`nt come in any new water.
Good luck.

Janis

The other possibility is that its petrol in the fuel tank as there are baffles in the tank so it could be petrol sloshing around.

Still regret selling that boat, for its size it was a fab boat, very sea worthy and a one off special build at 5.95 with the console set 12 inches further back from standard to put the driver nearer the turning point.

Happily swop a 6.5m ribtec for her back (hint)

Pete

You are totaly right about the petrol, can be a possibility, it`s a very nice boat, my partner has a similiar one and he really loves it, i had a Seaharrier that i sold (also regret) but order a new Osprey and will recive it in 12 weeks, i am really looking forward to it.

It is a very nice boat but does that radome at head level 6 feet behind you not worry you?
It would worry me!

Hi Rupert Bear

Well I do think about it, and I don't use the radar very much.
But it's nice to have if I end up in the mist.

I have no clue where else to put it. Since I don't want an A-frame or something like that up by the console.

I have been thinking of making some sort of pole right behind the seat to put it on, but I think it will just break off.

I have seen the A-frame on Petrov's boat's but there are also bigger than mine

Regards
Rene

Radar Arch

Hi Rene;

Maybe this is an idea, it`s the same model as you have.
We have also made an radar arch that is a little bit higher than this one and it`s like an extension (can you say like that) from the big A-frame, so it`s like a small A-frame on top of the big one.
Exactly same look as the big one, looks very nice.

One of the yachtie magazines did a test a few years ago which concluded that Radars put out less "energy" over a day than a mobile phone for a short phone call. Wouldn't worry abut it.

That's a really useful bit of information, Pete7.
Can anybody else confirm it?
And if your bonce does get in the way of the death-ray, what will show up on the screen (yeah, yeah, I know, in my case nothing!).

Hi Pete

That's some very good information.

If this is the case, then I will just stop thinking about it. (Maybe I already have, can't remember, maybe I have been talking to much on the phone)

Rene
