View the latest post Toilet waste (liquid) exiting out the air vent

1984 3207 Aft Cabin has always had good working toilets until this last couple weeks
All at once when the toilets are flushed no fresh water enters the toilet and the (liquid) exits the boat on the port side
from what I think is the vent tube??
At the same time no fresh water enters the boat when on shore water.---and that's only when hooked up to shore water.
We almost never turn on the water pump nor use the holding tank and up until this recent even had no problem dry
flushing the toilets while under way as we never have put any solids in the toilets at all in the 5 yrs we've owned the boat.
Can anyone see anything obvious in whats happening?
Is it that the toilets only pull fresh water from the holding tanks regardless of being hooked up to shore water?
Tight quarters down there and would love some ideas before I go down and get myself jambed down in there !!

View the latest post strainer buildup

With very high freshwater temps and living aboard full time,I am having to clean A/C strainer weekly. It was suggested that I place a small chlorine (pool) tablet in strainer to help. It sounds like a reasonable solution, however I do not want to damage coils or other components. Any experience/feedback would be appreciated.

View the latest post Winterizing Question

I have always done my fresh water system winterization and A/C system myself. For the A/C, I will shut the petcock for the raw water inlet, (as I do it while in the water), then open the strainer. I take a hose from the dock supply, and fill the strainer and run the A/C's, a few minutes to flush them free of salt water. Then, once done, I will pour pink antifreeze into the strainer (usually 5 or 6 gallons to ensure I get all the water diluted to pink) and run the system on both heat and cool, while letting the pink stuff flow through. Then shut off, and replace the strainer cover. When on the had, I will open the seacock to let any raw water drain out..

I am thinking of doing my Koehler Genset this year. Wouldn't all be the same where it has a heat exchanger? I would shut the raw water seacock and open the strainer, then run unit with a fresh water supply hose in the strainer. After a few moments, shut the hose, and begin to pour 2 or 3 gallons of pink stuff into the strainer, letting the genset suck it through and out the exhaust port on the side of the boat. I would hate to make a mistake and have it freeze during the winter. Am I missing anything? I know I am using a lot of pink stuff, but it is cheap compared to the not enough consequence.

Comments please?

View the latest post 1980 Voyager 3326 ... Update

Since I have not posted since we bought the boat, I thought I would give a update.
We bought it in June. We have used it quite a bit. Almost every week.
We did replace three batteries so all four are the same type and age. Also replaced the waste pump and the shower pump.
The built in air conditioning and heat work well as we have used both.
Everything functions as it should, however there are some of the original gauges that are not working, at the lower helm. Most upper gauges work. So that is something to look into. A few other items, but over all satisfied with the boat and operation.
Motors are twin Crusader 270's going into a Velvet drive transmission @ 1:1 ratio. Then into Walter V-drives. With 19" props.
Hull speed is not too bad gas wise, cruise speed likes the gas.
Starboard motor uses oil and has blow by, port not too bad.
Bow thruster works well.
Took our longest trip, about 30 miles one way, to Put in Bay on South Bass Island Lake Erie. Took it easy most of the way. The former owner installed a engine synchronization system and it seems to work well also.

View the latest post Drive Shaft Replacement

I broke the Starboard drive shaft on my '93 350 Aft Cabin just after it exits the hull. I'm having a hard time finding replacement parts.. The prop is a 22x22 and I think the shaft is 1 3/8". Any idea where I should be looking?

Is there any way to do this repair in the water?
