Re: Water heater element

I won a Bavaria 38 Cruiser and the electric water heater element just went out. It says it is 800 watts @ 110V. The water heater P/N is 41103518. Anyone have any clues to get a new element for this? Thanks I added the OEM manual for the Sigmar boiler, if this is the unit you have the part number fo...

We got the owner's manual and added it here to our library. This may be the only site offering it at this time.

Re: R40 Fly Bridge (@ Miami Boat show)

I took these pictures of the refrigerator during the show. It is built-in the cabinet in the saloon, I liked the fact that the ice area is properly sealed as opposed to just a basic plastic door as in most small refrigerators. The size and containers are also nice points.

Controlling humidity

My current boat is kept on a lift, it is few feet above the salt water needed for the AC cooling pump. Because of that I am unable to keep the boat's AC on dehumidifier mode while the boat is at my dock. I am waiting the delivery of my new boat, which will be kept in the water at least for a year. I...

Maintaining the fresh washer

My first boat came with the fresh water tank full, the water was coming out of the tap clean and without any odor. At that point in time my focus was on how to keep it that way. I googled so much about it, that I was coming to the conclusion that I should apply for a Chemistry major, boat owners are...

Maintaining the shower/sink sump pump

The sump pump that gets fresh water from shower, sink or AC units has to pump out soap, hair, food scraps, etc. Some boaters only deal with this maintenance when the system clogs or when they end up with a stinky sink... I learned that regular maintenance to the sump pump is required the hard way, w...
