I am the current owner of the Edenleigh a 1967 Andrews 34 due to family circumstances the boat has been left for over 12 months now and although i wish i had time in my life to take this on as a project it just can't be.

The boat is currently moored in the North East of England and I'm interested in hearing from anyone interested in offering a sensible price for this rare boat, outfitted beautifully in teak and mahogany other than soft furniture all original specification.

Hi all

Its great to see there is a members club for these boats. Im trying to help my friend and his dad get his seamaster 27 running well again.

The engine hadnt been started for over 2 years, it started nicely but it seems to be running far too hot and cant see any water coming out the back of the boat as it should.
Have stipped all the coolent pipes down to look for blockages I have removed the thermostat, still nothing.

Could it be the water pump gone? How do i get the water to run out the back? Just getting exhaust gases so far.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what i could try?

Many thanks
Chris

Hi,
I'm soon going to need to replace the canopy on my 23 cruiser & wondered if anyone had any recommendations for a supplier ?
I have seen a few obviously fairly new canopies fitted to boats on my travels & quality & fit seem very variable. I can't seem to find anyone local (Norfolk/Cambridge) so it looks like it will have to be mail order & therefore no opportunity to see before I buy & potential difficulties if it's not up to scratch.
Would appreciate any input,

Thanks, Tim

But would like to know if the lifting keel versions can dry out with out problems ? Also how do they sail ? Lifting keel v bilge keel ? Still very new to this . So any advise is gratefully received.

Does anyone have a template for a front screen cover for a Seamaster27, or wish to sell one? I have recently purchased a 27 and the front windows leak like a seive, so I feel that the first step would be to fit covers. I can then work on the rest at my leisure. (plus the covers give added security and help cut down on the condensation in the front saloon).
I'm moored on the Great Ouse at Bedford but am willing to travel a reasonable distance to collect if necessary

I am trying to remove my swing keel from a Seamaster Sailer 23. It seems to stop on some pins. Do you need to slide it all the way towards the stern and drop it down? I need to know because i have blocks under the rear of the iron ballast. I need to remove it to grind it up and paint it. I bought the boat with it stuck up. It is on dry land. Any information is much appreciated, this boat is in British Columbia Canada and no one knows nothing about these boats here. Thanks Tom

Do the windows have to be removed and disassembled to replace the felt coated rubber strip? Any advice would be most welcome.

We've just bought an 820 with a Thorneycroft 108 engine and I've been reading up on how to drain the system (prompted by the article in the current edition of the magazine!).

As I'm new to this engine I thought that the Thorneycroft Owners Manual would be the best bet but after reading the relevant section I'm confused.

The instructions are:

 photo raw_water_zpsbcl7s9nv.jpg

I read the sentence starting 'Alternatively' and can't follow it at all although I assume it's suggesting that purging the system with an anti-freeze mixture is the goal.

Does anyone have a recommended method of draining or otherwise winterising the raw water system on this engine please?

Many thanks,
Bernie

Hello there Forum

I am just starting the process of purchasing a Seamaster 34 as a second boat and I was hoping to find people out there who had either had one or has any advice. The reason behind this is that the one I am going for needs work on it in terms of bringing the interior back up to standard whilst adding a touch of 2016 to her. She is going to be kept in Greenwich and has twin Perkins 6.354 normally aspirated engines on board. Plenty of grunt there and these have just been serviced.

I would love to hear any stories or history you know or if anyone would be happy to share some pictures with me, it would make my life a lot easier.

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance.

I have just taken ownership of a Seamaster 27 and it is turning into a bit of a project! I have leaks in places I never knew I had places. My main concens are the front hatch/screen and the drop screens. My toilet compartment has mushroom fungus resulting from the seal on the screen leaking at the junction with the side screens. Water is running down the inside of the cockpit and getting under the wood trim. Does anyone know where I can get a suitable replacement seal? Also the front window seals-same question.

Hello,

New member to the club and first post, so please bear with me. I recently bought a Seamaster 17 with a Ford Anglia 105e (pre cross flow) engine. The tappets were a bit noisy so I decided to adjust them. When I got inside I noticed the intake pushrod on the first cylinder completely bent out of shape and was not even opening the valve. I straightened as best I could for now but need to replace it before I cause serious damage. I've not been able to find anyone stocking these. Any pointers to where I might be able to source it would be great.

Hi,
I'm really struggling with this one: I had just finished installing a holding tank, converting the toilet to electric and relining/refitting the heads compartment, when I was about to connect up the plumbing pipework. I thought it was 12mm copper and had purchased 12mm-15mm reducers, however the pipework won't fit. It seems like it must be an old imperial pipe of roughly 13mm - can anyone identify the size of the pipework used??

We have a Seamaster 23 with the 1970's Ford 1600 Crossflow. The engine temperature switch connector has broken off so I am after a replacement switch. However I cannot locate one. The unit is marked SWN11, 200F and 363-F. SWN11 appears to be a Lucas number but is not recognised on Google. 200F I assume is the temperature setting. 363-F only shows up on a switch a Stewart Warner switch in the US (Part 83307) but the thread size appears to be wrong. Theirs is 1/2" NPT. The switch I have is a 3/4" thread. I have tried several of my local motor factors, the 'been in the business for years type' and they cannot match it to a current part number. Any guidance on a potential part number or method of finding one would be appreciated. Or do you have the same engine with a different part that would also suffice?

Something of a long shot but I am about to get a new mast foot for Sea Holly cast. If anyone wants a replacement or a spare for the future, please let me know asap.

The cost should be well under £100.

Hi all,
We have a SMC28 and have recently realised that our steering gear is in need of maintenance.
Does anyone know where I can get a diagram showing the internals of the mechanism that connects the steering cables to the rudder through the hull?
I'd like to see what is in there (and, perhaps, get some idea of material specifications), before taking anything apart.

Date Posted: 22:43:16 09/06/2014 Mon

Hi All,

as i am a newbie i would like to thank everyone in advance for their help :-)

I am the proud owner of a Seamaster 23 cabin cruiser and it is my first boat . when we first got her the engine was unreliable to say the least and my first ever venture out resulted in a breakdown and a drift to the bank side and no ability to rectify it until a nice gent in a passing boat offered us a tow!
as you can imagine that knocked our confidence and the wife refused to go on it again and the children were forbidden which was against all the reasons i bought the boat in the first place!!
i have since fitted a new engine ( ford cross flow 1.6 petrol engine) and it appears to be a sound engine only the problem i have now is i have lost all my confidence and i find myself sitting on the pontoon with the engine running worrying about breaking down if i cast off!! such a shame.

a friend has said i should by a tender as a back up so in the event that a breakdown i could at least get my family back to shore safely and also possibly have the ability to tow the boat back to the mooring.

i have since purchased a 2.6m wet line inflatable dinghy with a Yamaha 2HP 2 stroke engine. i don't need to go fast or get on the plane as it is an emergency back up but people are telling me that it wont move against slight tides and definitely wont pull a 23 ft boat!!

can i get some advice regarding this please as i thought i had eliminated one risk and now i have another :-(

thanks again for your help guys!

Hi there all
A few months ago i for filled a childhood dream after many years of of boating on the Norfolk broads brought my first boat, which I must confess was love at first sight (please don't tell the missus !!!). She was recently upholstered throughout with a new canopy! , how lucky am I I thought. I knew she was a seamaster but was not 100% sure as to which model she was, especially as she was listed as a seamaster 27!!!
After much research I found I may have stumbled on to something quite rare a seamaster 26 commander. I don't know here exact year of build or wether she was one of the first or last but what I can say she has stolen mine and many others hearts in our short but hopefully very long time together....
I would be very interested if there is any information available

Another lesson learned. We left our 813 in the water this year - engine, water etc winterised + tubular heaters in engine bay so hopefully everything will be ok. Problem is water ingress via the canopy has done some significant damage to the varnish. We didn't use a tarpauline cover this year. The sides and helm contours of the 813 seem to encourage water ingress especially when rain driven. Anyone else had this experience?

Hi Peeps

I have just bought a seamaster from my brother (who is a Seamaster Club member, as I will soon be)and am already hooked with it being my first boat. It needs quite a bit of work, being an older model and there are a few leaks through the windows etc. to sort out.

My question is............. the boat has a huge wooden flat canopy above the rear area, with the windscreen being wooden framed (parts now rotting)and leaking also.

I would like to remove this for a nice split framed windscreen and seperate canopy to enjoy the sun when we get it.

I have looked throught the net to no avail. Any ideas or suggestions for manufacturers please?

I am moored at Yalding in Kent.

Doesnt overheat, have run it for 5 hours continuously up to Tewitfield and back the following day without any problems.
Anybody else had this issue or know how to solve?
Have been told to extend my exhaust downwards so it is under the water and you cnat see the steam , anybody else done this?
The exhaust is very short about 4" from engine straight out back of boat, is this normal ?

Hi Guys,

thanks for taking the time to read my post. my wife and i bought a seamaster 23 last summer and we have had our fair share of teething problems with the wortham blake pre crossflow engine so we decided to rip that one out and refit a crossflow petrol engine which appears to be a lot better( actually looking for a vintage ford mechanic who may be able to tune it for us!!).
now we are going to concentrate on the interior a little bit but firstly we were wondering if there is any where to buy the side folding seats from as we only have the one on the steering side.
secondly , we want to upgrade the instrument cluster as it is very dated but we were hoping to employ someone to do this as we need all the wiring redoing - does anyone know anybody in yorkshire who might take on a job like this?

your help in this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all, we have owned our Seamaster 27 for a few months now and have had a few teething troubles but I think we're getting there. We need a new fuel pump for our Wortham Blake petrol engine. Does anyone know what type we need?
Many thanks
Stephen.

Dear all,

I have been asked by a friend to see if I can trace the history of the Nantucket 31 he was given last year. It had been partially sunk at her moorings in Langstone Harbour and passed to him when the owner died. There is no documentation with the boat and she doesn't even have a name, although we were able to find out from a previous SSR number that she was once called "Pragmatist" when registered between 1989 and 1994. She also had a set of dodgers onboard with the words "If and When" written on them but we don't know if this was a name that was ever given to her. All he knows is that it is a Nantucket 31 MkII built by Seamaster boats in 1970 and it has a builder's No. of 3524.

She is now well on the way to a first class restoration but it wouldn't be complete without being able to put some history together. He doesn't use the web so I volunteered to help out. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can trace her history? We'd be very grateful for any suggestions.

Many thanks

Richard

The Ford X flo 1500 engine fails after 40mins running when throttling back to tick over, changed points, condenser and coil (fitted 2 so I can change over). Water pump is running ok but it seems that the engine is running very hot and possible causing a "vapour lock" as it starts and runs well after a 20 min rest!
Plugs seem white as if its running lean, dose any one know what plug should me used on this engine.

Hi all

I was really interested in reading the article from Brian foster regarding reducing fuel consumption on Trampus.

When I was young (1979ish) my father was toying with the idea of changing our boat as she was wood construction and needed a lot of attention, a fibreglass boat seemed the ideal solution and he saw Trampus for sale in hest bank.
We went to view her and we all fell in love with her straight away, unfortunately finances didn't work out and we didn't buy her, but we all have a soft spot for Trampus and every time I see her I think she is the nicest 27 on the cut. It may be my rose tinted specs, but she has a certain presence about her and its a treat to see her still going strong.

Hopefully we will see Brian out and about this year.

Regards
Pete

Hi All, hope you all had a great Christmas.

I have removed the front window of my Seamaster 8metre and thought I'd share with you the process.

The fact is that this is a relatively easy job and anyone that can operate a screwdriver will be able to do it.

First remove all the external screws from the frame.

Score around the frame with a stanley knife or other sharp blade.

Gently pull the whole frame from the boat, gently prising with a screwdriver if necessary. A second person to steady the window is a help in case the thing comes out too quickly.

Stand the window frame on the floor and remove the 8 screws from the top of the frame. These can be a pain if they're rusted in place but WD40 helps, be careful with these as they make a bid for freedom and are extremely small and difficult to find if they drop.

Then slide the glass to the middle of the frame and lift out.

Photographs will shortly be added to seamaster8m.blogspot.co.uk

Regards
Pete

Hi all

I'm new to the site and also the club and would like some help please regarding the seamaster 8m windows.

The starboard side front window (namely bathroom window) looks like the opening handle has been over tightened and has cracked the glass and altough is not leaking it really needs replacing.
Could anyone point me in the right direction as to how this comes out? It looks like the whole frame needs to come off the boat, not too bad as the bathroom is in the process of being refurbed so is easily accessible from the inside.
Am I on the right track or can the window glass come out with just the outer frame removed?

Many thanks in advance.

I've just purchased a Seamamster 30 and need to sort out some of the wiring. The boat came with a few photocopies of the original blueprint which are very indistinct. Can anyone tell me how I can get a reasonable copy please. The diagram is marked 165-16, Seamaster 30 standard wiring diagram. I have a separate copy of the Thorneycroft engine charging circuits from this website which is a great help. My thanks in advance, Mike.

Hello boaters,
My base valve gasket on my toilet is broken,the gasket sits at the bottom of the pump cylinder and may have a metal flap or a hard rubber piece in the middle so when you pump the handle of the toilet it moves up and down, The problem is,it is not a Jabsco part, and I dont know what make it is, If anybody has had to replace the gasket on there toilet and can tell me the name of other brands I would be greatful.

Hi everyone,

I have just brought an old Seamaster 21 in need of some serious restoration.

As I need to buy a trailer to pick it up, I was wondering if anybody could tell me the approximate weight, so that I buy one that is up to the job?

Also, it has a makers serial number of 1065 - is there a way to date the boat from this?

I look forward to potentially joining the club as soon as I get her home, as I'm sure it will be worthwhile.

Thanks in anticipation...

Stuart

Hi everyone, my Base Valve Gasket on my toilet needs to be replaced, this is the gasket at the bottom of the pump cylinder that has the piece of metal in the middle and it flaps up and down when you pump the toilet.Very easy to get if you need a Jabco valve, but my one is not a Jabco hence the problem. The one I need is bigger than the Jabco valve, if anybody knows the make of it I would be very great full to here from you.

Seamaster 27 - The red toilet inlet sea cock just keeps turning if I try to open or close it. [normal reistance when turning]
Has anyone repaired or replaced this type of valve or knows if it is a DIY job to repair or replace when the boat is out of the water over the winter. There is no visible corrosion on the valve. [I can supply photo's]

After my earlier appeal, we had a note from Mike and Chris (Wild Rose Seamaster 23), to say that they had seen Cellini recently. She was spotted going through Brownshill Staunch Lock on the Great Ouse. This was exciting news for us. We owned Cellini in the early 1990's and had many happy memories of cruising the Thames. We often wondered what became of Cellini and whether she was still 'going strong', Thanks to Mike and Chris this question has now been answered, but it would be interesting to know how and when Cellini was moved from the Thames to the Great Ouse.
Perhaps her present owners would like to 'fill us in'. This is for interest only. Thank you.

Also, our 813 is "open plan" with a sea toilet directly behind the helm. Is this a similar arrangement to yours? Do you have any reference to the makers?

I have read most of the comments but I do not seem to have seen any ref to a single keel Seamaster 23, which the boat I am looking at has. It is in need of some work which suits me as I was looking for a bit of a project. I notice some refer to a serial number, could anyone also advise me where I would find this. (It does have SSR15382 on the side of the cabin, but I am not sure if this is any help.

Hi all, as you may be aware by now, I own a Seamaster 27, a really nice boat, with a Ford 1600 diesel engine, and a Wortham Blake Hi-Drive 400 gearbox. I have now decided, if at all possible of course, to change the gearbox. The problem is, my existing gearbox has an offset 2-1 reduction on it, and therefore to change the gearbox will be very difficult . Has anyone any idea how to do this, and if not, what have you got on your 27's , ie, engine gearbox combinations.
Any suggestions or advice will be gratefully received.

Is there a mod on the market for this?

I was wondering if anyone has had any engine work done by Russell Marine in South Walsham Norfolk. Can anyone recomend them or give some pointers as how to avoid problems later on.

Regards

Hi I am a specialist haulier who has been asked to lift with my Hiab lorry mounted crane and transport a Seamaster 30 this is not a problem for me as I have lifted and transported many cruisers similar to the Seamaster along with a few smaller Seamasters,I find your site really helpful for finding out information about your vessels etc and I am just wondering if any one might know the overall height from bottom of the hull to the top of any standard fixed equipment on the 30 many thanks in anticipation jim Ricketts www.hiabcranehirewales.co.uk

We had the same problem with our 1974 seamaster 23, our windows to rattled, we solved this problem, as taking the windows out would have been a nightmare as you pointed out.

we recectified the problem by using Car window seals, there was just enough room to slide the seal under the glass, taking into acount peeling the backing off while slidng under, holding steady with the back of a knife, it was not expensive it came on a roll purchased from Ebay (car window seals), 2rolls required for both sides of the windows problem solved with out removing windows hope this helps

This is a message for Dave Gray.

I read the thread that Clive started, when his engine 'died'.

It seems Clive has sorted his problem out, now. I saw that you had a Perkins 4.108, which you offered as a possible solution to his problem.

My brother and I share an Admiral, based at Shepperton, on the Thames. Presently, it has a 4.99 which is nearly worn out. I'm keen to buy another Perkins engine that we can just drop into place.

Is yours still available?

Alan

Subject: Help with the removal of the sliding windows on a Seamaster 23


Author:

Date Posted: 13:43:20 15/11/2011 Tue

Hi,

I have a 1969 Seamaster 23 that was acquired earlier this year. When running, there is a considerable rattle from the sliding windows vibrating in their tracks.

On inspection, the seals have perished away to nothing and it's now just aluminium window frame clattering away against the tracks.

From this forum, I identified the replacement window seals from seals direct and ordered them. I now have them and am faced with a new problem; How do I remove the sliding windows from the boat in order to fit the seals? There doesn't seem to be a straightforward way of doing this and it seems that the only way to free the tracks would be to unscrew the aluminium frame that runs the length of all the windows. I understand that this also holds roof up so it's not something I wish to start if there's an easier way.

Can anyone recommend the best way to remove the sliding windows so that the new seals can be fitted?

Thanks,

Hi, I am wondering if anyone can help.
If I leave the helm even for the shortest time, and the boat begins to go off course, whether we are under sail or power there seems to be a viscious pull of the rudder to go further off course. ie: there is no self straightening effect whatsoever.
Yes the rudder is hung at an angle from the transom, so that when turned, a small part of the leading edge of the rudder actually lines up with the wrong side of the keel line, but surely the biggest part of the rudder should be pushed to the centreline by the force of the way of the boat.
We normally carry rather a lot of weather helm which I can't seem to correct, but we want to try and get her to be less tiring to steer.
Any ideas?? Adrian

Saturday 5th November ,
Renown`s re-built starboard engine coughed its way back into life following a rebuild after snapping the crankshaft. Once again a special thanks to the club for providing the manuals which assisted during the rebuild and a thank you to those members who provide advice and sympathy

Hi, I've just bought a seamaster 20 which I believe should weigh about 1 ton, but my trailer (which should take it) won't. The inboard engine has long gone and I'm going to strip out the cabin furniture - does anyone have any suggestions - would there be ballast in the boat and if so where? Any help gratefully received.
