 31 Open Cockpit table
  10/17/2014 3:03:24 PM   Posted by: Dakota773

OK Tiaradom!

Has anyone out there build a table to fit in the seatee area adjacent to the helm? Winter is coming and I've been thinking of this project for awhile. It obviously need to be removable. The seats are elevated so no matter the configuration, it's a custom height post and requires lateral and fore-aft reinforcement if anyone bumps it underway (for sure will happen). I've contemplated a typical post / recessed base with a very stiff (removable probably custom) bracket about the height of the seam from base to the seat vinyl. I know that Peko or someone make a "v" bracket that is removable table post, but I don't think it has the lateral stiffness and there isn't a good mounting location with the access door to the storage.

Thoughts and or pics would be welcome!

 3100 open'94 crusaders sea chests
  10/16/2014 3:23:55 PM   Posted by: Persistence

Hi all, i'm looking for something to make a nice seal over my sea chests so i can run the motors easily and winterize while out of the water. I tried a nice 3" pvc threaded cap but it was too big. looks like i need 2 3/4" or so. basically i want to pop the sea chest cap and insert something connected to a hose / barrel. My friend has a decent rubber piece that fits its just not that snug but it does work.

How do others do this?

 Teak flooring care as well as the hardwood on the walls
  10/15/2014 11:02:23 AM   Posted by: sluggo

I have a 2006 Sovran with the teak and holly flooring, I am assuming all I need to do is apply some teak oil (starbright?) to the floor and should be good to go. I also have wood on the walls, I think they are sealed with some sort of Polyurethane, so I guess a good wipping is all that is needed? or are the walls not sealed and maybe need teak oil as well??

Thoughts?? TIA

 Raw Water Pump Impellers
  10/10/2014 6:39:10 PM   Posted by: Uhehner

Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes high grade raw water pump impellers? Something that will not break up in pieces after one season. The OEM brands have gotten worse over the years and the outboard pumps on many installations are barely visible. Years ago impellers wore out or took a set and caused an overheat. Now they crack or break apart and plug the heat exchangers downstream. I can read about changing them but to actually do the job I need a strong midget contortionist. I'm thinking maybe a polyurethane type impeller. Comments please. Capt. George

Interior Layout: Island Queen Interior Arrangement (1996 & Newer models)

“Sea Ya’ll” is an very nice example of Tiara’s very popular 3300 Open. The 1996 Model year for the 3300 Open was the first year that an Island Queen Berth interior arrangement was offered, which became the preferred arrangement for all new Tiara models since. Earlier Tiara 3300 Open models have the offset double berth in the master stateroom which required one person to climb over the other to get out of bed. “Sea Ya’ll” also has the preferred Twin Crusader 7.4L XLI Fuel Injected engines rated at 320 HP each and completely fresh water cooled. This 33 Open is well equipped and very clean. You won’t be disappointed.

The Tiara 3300 Open is a fantastic multipurpose vessel which is as much at home cruising as it fishing. It is large enough to take on an extended multi-destination cruise and yet small enough to use as a day cruiser for sunset trips, cocktail cruises and even as comfortable transportation to and from the yacht club for lunch. The 33 is a great sea boat and with its 12’6” beam it is extremely stable adding to personal comfort during a long day aboard. “Sea Ya’ll” has cabin air-conditioning and a generator to make anchoring overnight comfortable even during hot and humid Florida evenings, or it allows you to keep the cabin cool when cruising or fishing for a break from the heat when needed. With a range of over 250 miles (estimated) at cruising speed (based 90% of available fuel), the 33 is capable of not only coastal cruising, but opens up the islands of the Bahamas as well.
