I need to remove my Enfield leg from my seamaster 23 so that it can go away for an overhaul. Can anyone tell me how to remove it? Do I need specialist tools?

How ocean-worthy is a Seamaster 925? To help answer that, I'm asking owners to tell me what are the longest distance cruises they have made with their 925. Anyone across the Atlantic? RTW? Across the Solent? ;-)

Hi
-I have recently purchased a seamaster 925 and have hauled same out on to dry storage.
-I noted a light break or opening in the gell coat material between the hull and the keel at the leading edge of the same connection and travels rearward approx. 150 mm on each side.
-I noted a light blue / green stain where water or moisture has since drained from the same area.
-I'm not sure how this connection was seated and or bolted as built at the factory and what the recommended repair procedure is for required rework now.
-Any information or instructive help would be greatly appreciated.
-If anyone can tell me where to purchase a manual on this sail boat, I would also appreciate.

Hi All,

Has anyone out there ever replaced all or part of the teak rubbing strip around a SM23 Sailer? On my 'Malina' part of the teak has rotted and I figure I'll need to replace the section/ side.

However, how on earth is it fitted to the hull....seems to be just SS screws.

Thought about replacing it with rubber but think that'll look nasty.

Any comments appreciated.

At present 'Smithereen' has a Deep Sea Seal type Stern Gland. It has worked well and without problems for the past 11 years, but as the manufacturers recommend changing after 5 years, it is now time to think about changing it. The manufacturers have told me that unless it is showing signs of wear, the five years can be exceeded (they obviously have to err on the side of caution).

Can anyone advise what type of Stern Gland arrangement they have on their 925, and how effective it has been. I do not know what type was fitted as original equipment.

I have a 23 fitted with a Volvo Penta 250 (150 hp) driving a 290 SP leg. Can anyone tell me what sort of performance I should expect with this set up. I think the prop size is 15 x 13. I have been using the boat on the non tidal Medway and so have been restricted to 5 knots. I will be going tidal next season so will have an opportunity to open her up. Will this boat plane with this set up ? On the odd occassion where I have opened the throttle the stern tends to dig in. Would trim tabs help ?

Hi,
We have recently bought a Seamaster 8metre - our first GRP boat. Unfortunately we did not have a survey undertaken as we accepted the information offered by the seller and the boatyard owner that the hull was sound albeit nearly 30 years old and with a few blisters.
Unfortunately we seem to have a leak into the compartment that contains the engine - it appears to be coming from a 'seam' just forward of the rear bulkhead - this seam appears to be where different pieces of matting join - but there is a gap of about 15-20mm between adjacent sheets and I guess that at this point the hull thickness must be about half of what it should be - presumably there is a blister on the other side that is allowing water ingress.

Does anyone have any idea of a compound that could be used to plug this on a temporary basis - until the boat is lifted out for the winter. Has anyone come across it before? Are these sort of repairs easy to carry out once the boat is out of the water- short of full osmosis treatment? I accept that the hull is old - so I am not looking for miracles - merely something that will keep the water out!

I have sent in a membership form, but have not haeard anything - is there any info in the members section that could help?

Thanks

Richard

I want a boat for cruising (not racing) in the channel and possibly further afield. I want her to be able to take rough weather in her stride. Does she sail well close to the wind? Is she easily manouverable in marinas? Does she leak, are there any weak spots?

Any info or experiences good and bad would be welcome.

Greetings!

I recently saw an ad for a "Seamaster Sloop, 25'"

I called the seller and he has no knowledge of boats at all. He has never sailed and doesnt know what he's even selling. He doesn't know the year of production either.

All he knows is that it's a 25' Seamaster Sloop.

I am unfamiliar with the Seamaster line and looking through this website, I can't find a 25' sailboat at all.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what kind of boat this person might be selling?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

A pal in the yard has just had his bottom sand-blasted and it looks a really neat job. In my survey when buying my 23 Sailer in August, it talks of the hull being "in the early stages of wicking and osmotic blistering". I know there are various schools of thought on this one, but does anybody know if the sand-blasting process would make the situation worse, or maybe even open up the blisters so they can be dried out and filled. Any experience/knowledge appreciated.

We are currently considering selling our Seamaster 23 to buy a bigger boat. She is in lovely condition and would normally be worth about 9000. However, last winter we installed a brand new Isuzu engine which has improved her running, noise level, emissions and economy. We appreciate we will not recoup all the cost of the engine but how much would you generally expect a new engine to add to the value.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

I have a 1970's 8m Seamaster - currently she is lifted out every year which allows her to dry out (at least partially) over the winter - the hull is in good condition, but at the end of the day is 30 years old.

I have a chance of a new mooring which would make lifting out much more difficult - I am new to GRP (an ex narrowboat owner) and I was told by the former owner that he believed that GRP boats 'of a certain age' should be on the hard every winter.

Does anybody have any thoughts on this - most marinas seem to leave the majority of boats in the water all year

Cheers

I'm looking to repair/replace my Jabsco raw water pump as it's leaking badly thro' the shaft. I've seen a little-used 2nd hand one for sale - could anyone advise whether it'd be compatible?
The current pump is a 6490-253, a belt driven unit with a 6.25" pulley. The one for sale is a 6490-222 - essentially the same unit, but with a 5" pulley. I'm happy I can mess with belts and adjustments to get it to physically fit, but would the higher pump rotation speed caused from having a smaller pulley be a problem - either to pump or to engine (a 1.5 litre Wortham Blake BMC diesel)?
I don't think I could swap the pulleys over as one is a press fit and t'other a threaded fit...

All answers gratefully received!

The armature windings have failed on the wiper motor fitted to my circa 1960 Seamaster Cadet.
These days nobody seems to offer a rewinding service (progress ??).
The motor is made by Delco.
Any thoughts on where I may get a replacement or what cars may also have used the same motor.

Hi all, My father is a member if the Club, but unfortunatley not into computers so I am posting up here for him.

We have a problem with our Seamaster 27 and overheating.

A little background ot the engine first.

Its a 1500 BMC Newage Diesel that has had the injectors & rail replaced about 6 years ago but other than that just been regularly maintained. It's a keel cooler though, not raw water cooled.

We had a burst hot water cylinder about 3 years ago (about 2 1/2' long) and we replaced it with a 1m long stainless steel tank. It holds the same domestic water volume but is shorter & fatter that the one we took out. The old tank had a 25mm copper pipe in & out of both ends that enlarged to 2" inside the tank. When we realised this (cut the old tank up to dispose of it) we increased the coolong water quantity to compensate (by adding lengths of Stainless Steel tube).

Ever since we replaced the water tank the engine temprature has been very "sensitive". it will cruise at just below the speed limit on the Thames at 90^C water temp but as soon as you give it some more throttle the temp just rises & rises - a short blast (5 -7 mins) today saw the temp reach nearly 100^C !!

Has anyone any suggestions or things to try to find out why it is bad? It never used to be like this!

Date Posted: 20:03:34 17/07/2003 Thu

I have had a diagnosis done on a leak on a Perkins 4.107 on our Seamaster 23. Apparently there is a leak from the Port side Witness Holes that means the
cooling water is escaping into the bilge. I normally get about 1 Litre of water every hour which can be pumped out but is annoying. I have been told that the only answer is an engine rebuild which will no doubt be
expensive. A Marina engineer has estimated that it could cost 3500.

Can anyone advise me whether this is the only solution, is buying a replacement engine a better option and if so where could I look for a reasonable solution. If a rebuild is necessary can anyone recommend someone to do this as I wouldn't have the time (or skill) to undertake this. She also seems to be getting through a fair amount of Oil but this doesn't
appear to be linked to the leak.

Any advice will be very much appreciated.

I am very supprised to hear that you are experiencing cavitation.
You are running pretty large props at 16x16. can to tell me what type of props you have. ie Equipoise or Turbine?

If the props are Turbine I would suggest that you come down an inch on pitch, if thier equipoise then i can speak from experience that you are not getting cavitation but vibration.
Seamaster 30`s are known for vibrations which can litteraly shake the vanity unit down aft.
The engine/shaft alignement is critical and not easy to achieve. Worth having the shafts checked for true and the props balanced.
The only other thing you can do if you cant live with it
is to modify the "P" Brackets.
I have done this to reduce vibration and to strengthen them against being pulled together should one get rope/fishing net wound around both props when at Sea. You are welcome to e-mail me directly for details.

We originally moored it at Shepperton Marina and it was called "The Cotswold Fleece", but when we sold it (approx 20 years ago), the new owner was going to rename it "The Edwardian Lady".
I would be very interested to receive any information or trace this cruiser if anyone knows of it's where abouts.

These numbers were found on a wooden pannel ON 342 789 RT 5 89/100. It had a 1600cc.Ford Petrol engine with a Wortham Blake gearbox.It looks similar to a Seamaster 813 inside and out except that the side windows are different but only slightly. It is about 24ft long but we have not measured it exactly.
I would like to know how suitable it is as seagoing boat, as a coastal cruiser.I am interested in becoming a member.

I have absolutely no knowledge about these inverters and would appreciate any advice given. I am concerned that a lot of power may be taken from the batteries when the inverter is being used, although for the uses I have mentioned, apart from perhaps a TV, the usage would be for a minimal amount of time.

Hi all at the Seamaster club.
I've had a Hardy 20 since 1983 which is now a bit basic & currently rather neglected. I now find myself in a position to realise a 25 year long dream to own a Seamaster 30 & am curently looking around at boats on offer. I don't know too much about their history but understand some 'so called' Seamasters are little more than river cruisers with a lightweight glass fibre lay up to match. Also, prices seem to vary considerably, Samir looks very nice but is by far the most expensive I've seen so far! Can anyone give advice on what to look for & what to avoid, is there any written material available? Can someone enlighten me as to what is different about a "Low line"; Iv'e also seen one with what appears to be a wodden cabin superstructure, is this normal & factory spec? The engine options seem to be either 2 x Perkins 4-107/108's or 2 x Thorycrofts, what max. speed can I expect with these configurations? As I intend to use it at sea, reserve power in possble bad weather is a must, what should I go for! Are they good sea boats? Finally, I live in Essex so if anyone locally is thinking of putting their 30 on the market, let me know.

Regarding your sterngland query. I think you will find that it is a deep water seal lubricated and cooled by water. The seal requires no maintenance and is a honed (mirror finish)phosphor bronze seal, held face to face contact by the rubber casing. Do not adjust as the pressure imposed by the casing is critical. Hope this helps, I replaced mine last year when a cut was discovered in the rubber caused by the jubilee clip holding it.

Contemplating engine/gearbox change from current petrol Ford 1703cc & Wortham-Blake manual 1:1 box, to Ford XLD and ???? gearbox. Question is, current engine & box are mounted at the same angle as shaft. If I replace engine, I would like engine to sit basically horizontal, whick will inolve cutting down the bearers at the front. Not really a problem but surely this will mean that I will need a down-angle gearbox or 8 or 10 degrees. Does anyone have any suggestions as to which gearbox?

After the coming season has ended, I intend to swap over from petrol to diesel, probably a Ford XLD rather than the more traditional BMC. With this in mind, I am wondering which would be the most suitable gearbox to fit, given that there is not a huge amount of space between the current manual box and the shaft bellows. Anyone have any thoughts. As the current engine has a fairly steep, downwards towards the rear, angle. I feel it may be better to make the new engine more level and use a down angle box. Boat is Cadet 24 MK1. Any ideas appreciated.

I ordered a clear diesel tank of 137lit (30 gall), so that I can easily see the level of the waste and top fittings, so if a pipe does come off, then there is no leakage to the bilges. The top pipe for pump out has a long tube to the bottom of the tank to get all the waste out. Hopefully this will enable me to not have to visit other pump out stations and pay their prices!

I am hoping someone can advise on a charging problem/alternator upgrade-
We've got a Diesel 813, with Lucas 16ACR (34 amp) alternator feeding 2 batteries (approx 100AH) via an electronic regulator (TWC II). Even after a full day's running the domestic battery doesn't last the evening, plus I've noticed when running the ammeter needle can oscillate at high freq for several minutes. Could the alternator be faulty, and/or not up to the job anyway?
We've no more than the original spec of 'leccy fridge, lights and water pump. I realise the batteries need testing, but the strange ammeter behaviour and low rated output of the alternator (34 amp doesn't sound a lot..) make me think this is first target -?
I'd be very grateful for any advice and/or suggested replacement units!

I think from pictures I have found on the Net it is 1960s it has curved front windows , 2 birth up front toilet on starbord side then kithen , port side is table and seating converting into a double bed , step up to open cockpit with helm position on port side . Any Idea what model it is and a value as is ? I understand its a long shot but I thought the Seamaster Club would be the best to ask . I may be able to get a photo and E mail if required .

I have a seamaster 925 (circa 1975) but have a major problem. The boat is now out of the water and there is noticable play in the bottom rudder bearing. This in itself is not a difficult repair but there is also movement between the plate and the skeg. Is this something that is known and is there a repair method? Are the build plans for the 925 available from anywhere? Please reply to jules@sheijul.co.uk

I have recently purchased a Seamaster 27 but the gearbox has a whine which is worse in reverse. I shall take it out and strip it this winter. Has anyone any idea where I can purchase spare parts for it please?

We have just bought a seamaster 28 and I am wondering if there is a site where I could see the various ways owners have utilised the space over the years. Whilst the back cabin is straight forward I imagine there have been some clever modifications to the front. At the moment ours converts the table into a double berth.
Thanks Val

Just become the proud owner of a Seamaster 23, Charming Kate, our first boat, and are trying to find our way around it. The water pump to pump water to the sink was working fine but since running it when the water tank was empty refuses to now pump water. The pump itself is constantly working now even when the tap is turned off but alas no water. Does anyone have any ideas before I get the floorboards up ( I still have to find the pump, another question!!)? The water tank is full as the toilet works fine. First of many questions I am sure!

Does anyone know where we can purchase a stainless steel bow rail for a 27' Seamaster? We are also looking to re-chrome or replace deck fittings. Any help would be appreciated.

Can anyone tell me where to get a temperature sender for the Bukh DV10ME installed in my 1973 Seamaster Sailer 23.
The hole in the crankcase is threaded M14x1.5 and I can't find anything to screw into it to stop the water pumping in. The actual sensor is not M14 but looks to be around 8mm dia installed with a reducing bush.

Does anyone know where I could get a wiring diagram for a seamaster 30. I have a wiring diagram provided by Thorneycroft however it is the domestic side I need to enable me to put a new dash board in.
