Re: Holding tank

There is a silver small vent outside the holding tank on the hull. Ours got clogged by salt and gunk. Simply use a flathead screwdriver or something else to scrape the gunk off. When the holding tank starts venting again, all is well.

Re: Engine overheating

Check for water flow from thru hull. If restricted: Close thru hull, take off hose connection, attach dinghy inflator foot pump to thru hull, open thru hull and immediately push air quickly through the dinghy inflator. You will hear it clear any lodged debris. Close thru hull remove dinghy foot pump...

Outland Hatch Covers

We are thinking about adding rigid Outland hatch covers to all of our Lewmar hatches. Has anyone else installed these and what is your opinion of them? http://outlandhatchcovers.com/ The price is about the same as canvas hatch covers and should be more durable. Looks good, too!

Many times I contact Catalina Yachts. Sometimes they have the part or they provide a supplier.
