Doesn't it cost more to birth a 2' longer boat?

Your problem should be discussed in the tech section.

Alot of the better mechanical minds don't come down this far into the forum.

If you choose to re-post your question in tech... i'm sure it would be fine with everyone.

PS - You saw water shooting out the plug holes when the spark plugs were removed ?

You see milky oil when you pull the dipstick ?

Love that swim step... any problems with lack of holes and stern slap in waves? OEM have openings at the transom to allow wave action and relieve stress caused by waves back there.

I'm already paying for a 26' slip, so no need for a longer berth.

Time will tell if lack of clearance between the transom and platform will be a issue. It does have openings in the center of the platform. It'll be at least several more days before I splash. Even though a put a layer of 5200 between the struts and the hull, I'm worried about the seal. I think I should have scraped off the bottom paint first. So, I guess my options are to remove the bottom of the struts, scrape and re-caulk, or scrape the paint around the strut and caulk over the whole assembly. Thoughts?

Steve, I'd probably leave as is right now vice opening the holes on the transom and loosening the holes and taking a risk of leaks... Paint behind the struts should not be a problem or concern.

Thanks Doug, but I didn't hang around after I posted last. I realized that if it bugged me now...it would bug me forever. I went and removed the struts. Took off the bottom paint and applied copious quantities of black 5200, I worked some into the screw holes with a sacrificial drill bit, coated the bare gelcoat, and applied to the threads of the lag bolts and torqued as tight as I dared . I now KNOW water wont make it's way in to the glass. It'll be a long time before I have normal looking hands. I shoulda wore gloves.. :pinch:

Hi All. New owner of a 2005 242. Anyone know which year Bayliner began to call this model the 242 rather than 2452?

Ruff wins... 2003...

Dooglas: Nice boat and welcome aboard. I have a friend who also had the 2005 242 and we could not see any real difference between his and my 2001. We did a lot of the same mods too. I saw in the 242 thread asking about monkey fur. As long as its just around the inside windows, you can spray it with a white or clear to seal it from decaying any further. If you elect to rip out the fur, good luck. It will be a chore getting it all out and replacing with a good foam vinyl. If you do, please post photos...

I have just bought a new GPS / Sounder for our 96 2452. This my first attempt at adding anything electrical. The fuse panel is easy to locate, however will someone please tell me where the negative busbar is?
Thank you.

A digital volt/ohm meter would make it easier for you. The only buss I'm aware of is for the AC shorepower panel.

Ian - there's one behind the main electrical panel in the cabin and there's one underneath the helm console . . . . might be easier to run a new one . . pretty cheap, really . .

Thank you. I will look for the one underneath the helm console, just so I know where it is and if it does not meet my needs then I will install a new one.
Thanks again.

Do you mean white spray paint or clear lacquer? What does that look like after spraying? I'm trying to imagine what paint would do to the fur. I probably won't attempt any ambitious removal/restoration before winter but I will certainly post photos of anything I do.

Light coat of white will also coat the bare wood that may be showing... Or just use a box cutter and trim the fur off the inside of the forward window frame and paint the wood with white paint.

If you can find a color that is off white, the fur will be stiff if you touch it but look fine. I would not do the entire inside of the cabin... just the frame around the forward window...

Interior lights

When I was buying the boat I noticed 4 of the 5 lights in the cabin (little round white lights) didn't work and asked the owner and he said just bulbs - ok fair enough
Got the boat home and checked but all bulbs were good. Did an LED conversion and pulled every light apart and found the switches are causing all the issues.
Pulled each switch apart and tried to clean up all contacts. They all started working.

Now only about 2 work consistently (lucky for me one is in the head) and the rest you have to wiggle the switch side to side and play with and they might turn on.

So is this common or did I just get a bad batch of lights. Anyone clean or replace the switches inside the light ? Or just easier to change them all out and which lights did you use ?

Thanks
Dave

I also switched the bulbs for LED's but have not had any issues with the switches... Hard to imagine they went bad but I know what do to now if I get flickering or no lights... thanks....

BTW, bought an LED fixture off eBay and installed in the aft top of the cockpit. Now I have a light that shines on the aft cockpit table....

Try dielectric grease. I use it on all electrical contacts and bulb/tube bases.
