The only sure fire way is to get a recently certified calibrated shop tach, run the engine, then you can compare your dash tach, at least you can mentally make up the difference, or mark the dash tach.

That being said, the one on my current boat is within 50 over. Something tells me at one point someone had worked on it.


There could be several factors, including bottom paint, and a seasons worth of crud on the bottom as well. However as stated, I have had the boat up to 35mph which was GPS indicated and my speedo was correct to within 2mph....so tach readout id probably the answer. On to the whole "getting on plane" thingy....I have absolutely no issues getting on plane quickly without the use of trim tabs. I will try to post a video next week.

Is there any way to turn the fridge totally off when not on shore power but the battery switch is turned to bank 1 for cabin lights? Working on some boat improvement projects while it's in storage and noticed that that battery drain was a lot faster than I anticipated -- only thing I can figure it being is the fridge.

Turn off the knob inside the frig will take it off all power... no matter where the breaker position is or if on shore power...

So the wife and I went out to the storage yard to work on the 242. A few hours later, we've:

* Added 2 40w solar panels (one per battery) to keep them healthy over the winter. I set them up behind the windshield in the dash facing south, so they should be safe from wind.
* Removed the old stereo and got the wiring ready for the new unit I've ordered.
* Confirmed it was the cabin port speaker that was dead and not the wiring, ordered 2 new speakers.
* Played with a multimeter to discover that all of the dead cabin lights actually have good bulbs and wiring -- all 4 have bad switches. Any recommendations for complete light (not just bulb) replacements? I'd like to go to brighter LEDs and replace the entire housing rather than try to fiddle with those tiny little switches.
* Checked the hatch as ours was sagging around the ends, so I removed it and it turned out the plastic rim is broken on one side. I should get that replaced to minimize mosquitos next summer. Does anyone know the make/model of the hatch screen?

Naturally, we forgot to turn the fridge off. Gah! Next time. I'm pretty sure that with the battery switch off it won't be draining power anyway.

Those flip on switches on the cabin lights deteriorate and stop working after a few years, same happened to me as the former owner was careless about the cabin climate . I bought some dead cheap switched on ebay and modified them so they look good and you can not see the difference. if you are good with a soldering iron you can do the same. it does involve gently cutting out and enlarging the switch hole on the plastic housing with a dremel.
these are the switched i used to replace the original bad ones: www.ebay.com/itm/C6006-RC-Model-Receiver...?hash=item5d3f0971ea

Your fridge being left on should no be a problem if the MBSS if off.

Today was a good day of working on the boat. Added a burgee mast to the fore railing and a swim deck mount for the new Magma BBQ. First new holes drilled in the boat (on the swim deck) and wrorked out great! My admiral was delighted.

Ordered some new LED cabin lights to replace 2 of the dead housings (plan to fix the others) and the 12x12 DF trim tabs. Should be here Tuesday. I think the trim tabs are both a major upgrade and a major change -- looks like I'll have to relocate the swim deck ladder a few inches. Searched the forum thread for some ideas to fill the holes.

Also confirmed that the fridge is turned off properly -- finally. Thanks for the assistance with that. :-)

Saw a very interesting BOC thread on a Wifi iOS radar system at a reasonable price. I'm seriously contemplating that, especially Azfter this summer where many days on the lake were smoked out due to forest fires hundreds of miles away. In the winter budget it's either that and a larger house battery bank (with some 12v fans) *or* a generator on the swim deck (I've got factory AC to power, and we hit 38C/100f for 6 weeks straight this summer). I'd love to hear opinions on the better path to go.

Has anyone had to reseal the front windows in the cabin area?

Have one that I believe is starting to leak.

You are probably the only one... NOT... seems to be a problem for many... You can remove all the caulk or just drip some Capt Tolley Crack Cure in any obvious cracks around the windows. While at it, run a line around the hand rails on top of the cabin... they will leak way before the side windows... do the same for the windshield wiper(s) at the base of the cockpit windows too.

Next, run a bead of silicon on the rub rail all around the boat. Do both the top and bottom edges...

That will repair any leaks...

a small bottle of Capt Tolley is good for a life time of repairs...

Wow, I love the transparent door. I'm guessing you using the original doors as a template and have the PVH 10mm cut to match? Did the same hardware and mounts work with it?

Also love your wine glass holder. Any concern with the glasses breaking?

No sweat, just never dock with the rear end and let her attempt to climb from the bow, once will be enough and as soon as she has gone , then turn the boat back round again :P

Hello ,We use same hinges on PVH doors . Regarding transome doors , there is not used original door templates .Just from free mind ( mainly to not cut boat WIN nr ) .
For not breaking glasses , use pcs of foam packing material for stoping them moving ..
