Re: Battery Test Meter Wiring

Former broadcast technician here, it is hard to say 'positively' (LOL), but looking at the front and back pics I would say - the red wire that goes to the red test pinhole on the front goes to the center position of the switch, as does that black wire that is connected to the test meter. A wire (fus...

Re: C22 Window Question

Also if you are re-using the original frames (assuming the C22 is the same as the C26), go slow removing the outer frame; they bend easily and are hard to get back exactly flat. I found on EE's it was best to use as wide a putty knife/tool as you could to spread the load along the edges..

Re: Chrysler 26 eBay listing and some interesting structural information

its listed as a 79, but the bullet foredeck looks to be a 77 or 78 model. Still a nice boat tho.

I found several areas on EE's cabin top that were honeycomb as well, around the portlights, and the area in front of the forehatch for sure.

Re: How to measure a bimini for backstays

No, sorry, was maybe 1/2" tho since that's all I see at the blue home store web site and that's where they came from - I'd say get as big as you can - leaves you room for error and if you center the backstay in them you won't have any chafe of either the stay or the grommets.

Not sure how far forward the mast would go before something stopped it, and I wouldn't want to find out !

Re: Suddenly, My Pop-up Top Won't Sit Properly in It's Track, And the Companionway Boards Are Too Tight to Fit

Bob makes a good point if the boat is in the water as he asks ! I never thought about the C22 winch just hanging from the companionway, and if there are teak foot grip strips there you have lots of potential leaks into the sole there. My old boat was creaky there for that reason. (as far as board fi...

Re: Suddenly, My Pop-up Top Won't Sit Properly in It's Track, And the Companionway Boards Are Too Tight to Fit

I'm going to suggest the boards fitting too tightly are their own separate issue from either the water or the popup drop. EE's boards took spells of either cupping or expanding during hot humid summer weather. Cupping caused them to not fit in the track slots, and expanding of course meant they woul...
