Motorwell cable/hydraulic access

So probably just an aesthetic question, but where would you drill your hole (holes?) for motor cables from the boat? And, how big of a hole (holes) would you drill? I'm looking for some practical advice regarding what is best practice and what I should never do! The boat is a CX19 that was started w...

Hey PeeWee

Yup, that's the stuff. Only used it for a couple of extra wire chases. One side collapsed. The other looks okay. That foam is strong stuff! ;-)

Re: Live and Learn chase tubes

Peter. The PVC was light wall vacuum tubing. I thin heavy wall tubing would have been fine. Also nagging at me was the material type sop I checked. It is all PVC (white, gray and orange), not ABS. It is the light walled vacuum tubing (white) that caused me the grief.

Live and Learn chase tubes

So I placed my chase tubes using a combination of [edit] heavy wall PVC[/edit] electrical conduit for the main runs and light wall PVC vacuum tubing for the secondary ones. I thought I was sooo smart as the vacuum tubing is far cheaper than the heavier electrical conduit and seemed like a good idea ...

Re: Sole to hull cx19

Thanks

I have lost or misplaced that document. Good thing most of the hull build is done. I will use bias for the seam as well.

Sole to hull cx19

I seem to have misplaced a sheet from my plan set that describes the sole to hull joint. I am pretty sure that I want to tape this joint, but do I use 12oz biax for this?

Re: Fuel Tank Compartment

Hi Are you installing a permanent built in tank? Would the fill be remotely located? I have a similar question in another thread, but my feeling is that I do not want gas anywhere in the boat except in the tank. I would not want to purposely let it flow from the bow to the bilge. Better to control a...

Re: a question on switches...

Hi Mike The difference between a double pole double throw (DPDT) and a single pole double throw (SPDT) is simply that the double pole is like two switches in one. Since the lights only need the positive lead switched, a DP switch will work but you will probably not use one pole at all. There are a c...

Another fuel compartment question. CX19

I am closing in my interior and got to thinking about the fuel tank. On my CX19' the tank is beneath the floor directly in front of the engine well bulk head. In fact, it extends through this bulkhead and into the bilge below the splash well. The keel drain runs from the cuddy to the bilge including...
