My husband and I left UK in 1998 and emmigrated to S.Africa. The only heartbreaking loss was selling our 30' Seamaster which was moored at Penton Hook Staines. They were the happiest days of our lives cruising the Thames.The new owner took her on the Medway, anyone know of the current whereabouts of Morning Tide. Happy memories.

I have just purchased a Seamaster 23 with a Perkins 4 107 engine. Has anyone had good success in soundproofing the engine bay and diesel and water tank compartments to reduce noise in the cockpit area. I have noticed there are many products available with varying prices. Can anyone recommend one which has given them success.
Look forward to a swift reponse in order that a conversation can be held at normal speech levels whilst cruising!!

HI,
Mareel has Sparcraft Twinsaty/Dynafurl headsail furling gear.
The Sails are Hood sails who may have supplied the furling gear.
The Halyard swivel bearing has failed and needs to be replaced.
We have taken the foil off the boat but cannot see how to detach the stainless
steel cylinder housing the bearing at the top of the foil - it appears to be
wedged internally and resin fixed to the top of the foil.
This cylindrical housing needs to be removed in order the take off the halyard
swivel assembly to enable the swivel bearing to be removed and replaced.
There appears to be no respnse from Sparcraft in Lymington. Do anybody know who
deals with this furling system that could advise and supply bearings??
Many Thanks,

Hi there we are the proud new owners of a 1968 seamaster 25. As with all new boats there are a few things that we would like to change. Firstly the front windows in the cabin are of the fixed type but we have seen other Seamasters that have an opening window fitted and we were wondering if these were original items or if they have been retro fitted,if so where can we obtain one?
The other thing that we would like to change is the roof vents,preferably with a larger hatch. Has anybody done this on their boat and if so was it easily done?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I have recently bought this boat which is on the water and was built mid 70's as far as I know.
I am looking for a trailer to transport it but need a little more info about the bottom.
Can anyone tell me if there is any depth of keel under the bottom particularly at the stern end.
I am trying to establish the dimention between the centre rollers on the the trailer and the height of the wheels/mudguards. The depth of keel will obviously determine this dimention.

Having had the prop. flexible coupling on my TMP gearbox ripped apart by picking up a barge mooring rope I am now going over the whole engine combo with a fine toothcomb. One engine mounting nut is slack and the mount looks a bit 'Heath Robinson'. I wonder if this has been a contibutary factor to the coupling's demise or vice-versa. The boat has always been a bit of rattle-can but I've put that down to the frugal and reliable but hellishly noisy Perky. Does anyone have a suggestion as to when to replace engine mountings? The boat (owned 6 years) is a 1975 8m but the present mountings do not appear to be original.

Dear John. I am on my third Seamaster 30 (just luv 'em!) When purchasing I think the first thing to consider is whether she is a factory built boat. As you probably know a lot were fitted out by various boatyards and differ from the original. Whilst I am sure the latter are still great boats, they do not
retain the value of an original. If you have had a survey carried out this should point to any problems? A few have suffered from osmosis over the years and another problem can be leaking windows which if left unattended can cause damage to the bulkheads. I hope you are happy with your purchase. Mine is moored at Beccles and if you want to have a chat e mail me and I will send you a landline number. Happy boating! Regards Alan.

Our Seamaster 23 cruiser toilet cubicle requires bringing up to 21st Century standards. It has the original washbowl on the left, with a (far-too high) raised platform for the obligatory porta-potti.

I would welcome to hear the experiences of others who have revamped the toilet of this craft or others. We would like to install a sea toilet (with a holding tank for pump-out in the bilge) and a shower.

Was the drop from toilet to holding tank sufficient, what size tank did you go for, did you use mermaid panelling (or similar), where can you purchase suitably sized shower trays, did you use a sump pump, how best to reduce the condensation issues, etc?? These are a few questions going around my head but any advice you can pass this way is welcomed. This will be a job for the winter, starting with removing the raised platform.

For info, we cruise the upper Thames.

Ok I cant find the answers I need anywhere on the internet, so can anyone finally answer my question?

I have a seamaster 23 and have 2 batteries in the rear of the boat. 1x 12 volt 1x 240 volt but how do I connect something to it to give us electric in the galley/Living area? I appologize for maybe being rather blind in all this but I havent a clue what I am doing.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It seems the previous owner failed to tell us anything about this boat, hence its all a guessing game.

The other question is I have a 'aquaflow' galley sink tap that does nothing. It appears to have a electric cable connected to it, but the knob turns round and round and nothing happens.I cant find anything to turn it on either. The fridge has been wired up and works, but there is no other electricty supply in the galley. As the wires are all at the back of the galley cupboards I dont know were to find this supply of electricity to the tap.

Can anyone shed any light on this type of tap? or shall I buy a new one and admit defeat!

Thank you in advance

Does anybody know how we can get a replacement part for our seamaster 23 following a little accident last weekend. The part is a metal skirt that is attached to the wood on the rear sides of the boat.(By the door) Sorry bad discription.I am guessing it stops the rain from gettting in by the door side of the canopy as well as from the roof down. It is straight and then angled down. Can anyone suggest anything. We still have the metal but is very twisted and can bend it back as it very thick.

I own a Seamaster 23 sailer with a Bukh 10, when I am running the engine in gear I start taking on water. I am sure that the water is coming through the seals but I am at a loss as to what type of seals to get. I have no stuffing box but a direct oil feed to the drive shaft. I am not losing any oil through this.

What I need to know is what type of seals to but. My plan is to change the seals between tides so I have to have the correct seals otherwise I will be in trouble. Could someone also let me know where I can obtain these seals.

Please contact me on e-mail address as well as the forum.

We have this week purchased a 1971 Seamaster 23, and as total novices who know absolutley nothing about this boat, or what does what!

We have looked at all the buttons on the Aft cabin and we dont what any of them do? When you buy a car you can purchase a Haynes Manual but with our lovely boat comes nothing. Can we get a manual or someone help us?

We dont even know where the water goes into the boat for the sink, or how the plumbed in toilet works. Not forgetting how we get lights to come on inside the boat.

Pathetic I know, but who does know how to use a boat for the very time without the whole thing being a learning curve. After all we are all human!

If anyone can point us in the right direction, it would be so appreciated and give us pleasure to use our lovely Seamaster.

Hi,
I'm looking at getting some new genoa sheet winches for my Seamaster 23 Sailer. I was wondering what size winch people would suggest for this. Does anyone use 2 speed winches? The best deal I seem to be able to find at the moment is on 16:1 2 speed winches. Has anyone managed to mount their winches and get 360deg movement? Where my old winches are mounted there is a stanchion and guardrail which get in the way.

Thanks,

Steve

Does anyone know if these can be purchased complete or would I have to get one made up?

Many thanks for you help.

The front windows and screen on my Seamter 813(both original "standard issue" fittings for the model) need some attention.

The rubber gaskets around the glass have started to seep (usual problem of the rubber deteriorating and becoming porous), so I've decided replacement is one of the jobs for this winter.

I'd really like to buy the replacement gasket before I remove and dismantle the windows so I can reduce the time they have to be removed.

So, wondered if anyone has done this and knows what size the gasket needs to be?

I've found what I think is suitable at Seaglaze

http://www.seaglaze.co.uk/spares/gaskets/s_41_screen_gaskets_for_5mm_glass.php

Has anyone done this job before and know for certain what size gasket is needed?

I bought a 1974 seamaster 23 sail cruiser about 5 weeks ago. I would like to replace the Chain pipe which is missing its hood. Chandlers only seem to be able to supply ones too big and without the mating piece below decks. Anyone help.

More importantly though as a sailing novice I am finding she will sail on a Port tack quite well about 45 degrees away from the wind however she will hardly sail at all on Startboard. She has a shortened mainsail apparently to try to balance her however this occurs mainly if I only have the genoa out.

Any help gratefully received

Rodger
