Thanks.

There use to be a guy on eBay that had great prices for smart chargers but that was years ago... he could still be there...

any smart charger would be fine... but when the time comes, I will look hard at Promariner chargers: www.google.com/search?num=20&safe=off&q=...D24&biw=1366&bih=642

check out Go2Marine in our classified section... they have good prices and we all get a discount due to being BOC members...

My stove top worked last year but this year on our first outing it didn't. lifted the top and took the cover off the electrical box, there is power to it but nothing coming out. there is a dark brown heat mark on the bottom side of the circuit board. I'm thinking this might be the problem

I just threw mine into the dump... Those boards are available to replace... contact the manufacturer (I forgot the name but they have/had them plus the decal over the buttons)

So I am posting this here on our 2452 forum in case others are chasing bilge water..

Been chasing the water in the bilge for a while now... Not bellows, not fresh water tanks, not black water tank...

I was in the bilge after an afternoon fishing trip and when fish comes on board, I bleed it in the hold between both cockpit seats and wash it out the drain at the back of that hold. Got home and when I went to use Salt Away to rinse the engine, I saw what looked like coagulated oil which turns out to be salmon blood... Upon inspecting the drain, I saw it was broken off at the drain and was dumping directly into the bilge. Plus the over board drain which is normally a couple of inches above the water line, was allowing water into the bilge too.

So, I need a new T fitting and a little extension to the overboard drain under the helm side...

Oh yeah, here is the problem solver (12-14# king):

You're going to love these... Just use a screw driver to pry the tab holding the current trim tab on and slide the new one in and bend the mounting tab back in place...

I have same problem the rear drain hose connector (on mine it is horizontal instead of vertical drop) is leaking, not sure if it is loose and can be tightened or I have to use sealant. Your thoughts?

Installed the sport pilot auto pilot system for cable/hydraulic assist a couple years ago and have never been truly happy with how it performs. And upgrading to true hydraulic steering is the only real other option I am aware of.[/

Can i ask why you are dissatisfied with your sportpilot?
I have the same setup (sportpilot 5x with ev1 and ACU200) and i am very happy with mine. Just completed a 800km journey with it controlling the boat most of the way,


Anything more than a 2 foot chop or a still breeze and it will not hold course when trolling.

Good idea on the removal...

The T fitting leaking on yours should be replaced. I don't think the stress of bouncing around will hold any sealant... It will fail eventually... I will be looking shortly for a new hose and T . Seems Bayliner cut the hose too short and it never really lined up with the void drain. The void drain itself is fine with a small clear plastic hose connection still connected to the void but the end of the T is broken off inside that hose on the void...

Yes the 4300E model. Have googled everything trying to find a supplier with no luck. Heading out for a trip on the
Trent Waterway in 2 weeks and sure would like to have it working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Tom

Try emailing these guys and ask about the circuit board... www.dometic.com/USA/Support/Spare-parts/

just because they don't have them listed does not mean they don't have them on the shelf...

I hate how the drain collects water because the outlet sits half an inch higher. :silly:

Hi, been lurking here for awhile and thought I'd introduce myself. We picked up our 2452 about a month ago. Love the boat and the info I'm picking up here on BOC.

Dave, you will find a lot of things you can do to improve your 2452.... and we do a good job helping you spend money... (makes us feel good too...) :evil:

I think one of the best mods would be the bigger drop fin trim tabs...

Welcome and enjoy the 1800+ thread...

I have some of my older mods in my signature on my 2001 2452 and need to update that as I added a bunch more... these guys here have a ton of knowledge on our boats so don't worry about asking questions...

Thanks to you and Parrot fish for the help. Just for everyones info I contacted the companies named, the one named above was the most help but they don't sell direct to the customer. They did give me a company name in Ontario for me contact but they don't sell direct neither. That company then directed me to a list of companies they supply to. Anyway after numerous phone calls I finally got a hold of a person who could help me. After giving him the part number his first comment back to mme was "are you sitting down" . The Electrical circuit board I need for my stove in my boat cost $499.95. A whole new stove is only $559.95. The guy told me has had the part in stock for over 10 years. I wonder why. Called a local marina in Chatham Ont. and I can buy a new 2 burner electric stove (no alcohol which is OK by me) that will fit perfectly for $395.99. Guess he's going to have that part for a while longer

Now you know why I went with propane replacement... cost was ~ $150 for a 3 burner Attwood RV cooktop, 18 ft of propane line, various connections, 2.5# propane tank that sits on my transom inside my dink kicker bracket all for less than $250...

Something must be wrong in your setup as my Raymarine Sportpilot 5xr holds perfect course right up to 6 feet chop. (i have a mobile phone clip to prove it).
However that mine is using the most updated 9 axis sensor unit which is more accurate than the older flux sensor, the autopilot computer is the ACU 200. All running the most updated software .
I have heard that the older versions used the ACU 100 and the flux sensor which sometimes was a pain.

Another thing that is very inportant is the 'hardover time' and 'Drive/rudder angle' settings in the calibration. If they are set to wrong values for your boat the autopilot computer calculates and corrects with wrong alogritims.

The newer system has worked faultless so far all from as low as 1.5 knts and up to 28 knts.

Curious why? I was thinking of adding something like that to my 242 (bravo drive) as I did on my old 2452 with alpha. I found the device on this site back than and ordered one of the original designs, it worked wonderfully, with the exception of when I was at a marina where I was stern in on a sea wall, then had to leave room to avoid it striking wall and made hard time of getting on and off boat. The 242, just like the 2452 wander at no wake speed.
