460 Express Cruiser (1985-1989) Discussion Area

wow
its on facebook market place
east northport ny
price drop to 11k

Man only three pic's and tarped where the canvas should be. Guessing that one should be let go. Not to mention 30 hrs on a remanufactured rebuild - doubtful. Those engines alone would be worth 11K ea. if that were the case.

 
Skybolt, I made a PDF of the owner's manual (~9 meg). Send me your e-mail address and I will forward it to you. Same goes for anyone else wanting a copy.
late the party and bringing up old content, but if that pdf is still available I would love a copy. taylor.byron2@gmail.com Thank you!!!
 
Curious why you would want it since you don't have a boat and this is your first post?
Because he is a ???

I have the crazy idea of replacing the trouble prone water cooled air conditioner with a multi zoned mini split.

That is a crazy idea. Where would you put the compressor and how would you cool it ...

Why do you say trouble prone water cooled? All marine AC's are water cooled. I have two large units in my boat, not trouble prone. You do need to clean the lines every season and/or keep chlorine/bromine tabs in the strainer.
 
Haven't posted here for a while and many upgrades and changes have taken place. Here is the Galley upgrades from the dead sub-zero's to the new layout. This round I upgraded the frige/freezer to a side by side FF and added a Wine (Beer) cooler into the mix. Replaced the floor and switched to a two burner Kenyon glass top cooktop. What's left is to order a Corian counter top, the cooktop went from the princess three burner fold up top, to a glass a smaller glass top, had to make temporary fill in blocks until the new counter top is ordered. Probably not until fall, too much to do to get the counter top installed but who knows.

Since the server upgrade here on CSR some of the older pics did not make it through the upgrade. I was asked about the interior pic I had posted. So here are the new galley pic's from a while ago.

Beautiful! What fridge make & model?
 
Beautiful! What fridge make & model?

The appliances I replaced the sub-zero's with were not a direct replacement. I found what would fit relatively well in the space and then I made the surround out of Mahogany to fit the appliances. But they are Summit, a side by side and a wine cooler. that fit into the space.

My wife wanted something to hold her wine and my beer to keep the refrigerator only for food.
 
What size sheets fit on the bed?

Your kidding right? I had custom ones made up years ago. I also got rid of the custom spring mattress that came with the boat and cutout a new one from two double(s) of cool memory foam. Then glued them together with contact cement.

But I think you can sort of make king's work. I think, I forget what we did at first.

How many do you put in and how often? Where are each of them located?
 
Could someone please tell me how these waste systems work?
On past boats I just had a manual handle.

So on my boat, there are only two breakers for the head. One is for the vacuum generator and the other is for overboard which is also key locked.

Your system has been modified over the years and it looks like you have two holding tanks and why there is a waste transfer pump? just guessing based on the panel labels.

Because your panel states Treatment System, I am guessing it has the old Raritan treatment system something like this:


The breaker labeled Head should operate the vacuum pump, so the head flushes. The treatment is to prepare the waste for overboard dumping and the overboard, is well the overboard dump. The transfer is for between tanks, if you have two. It might be the small Raritan tank to a larger tank also. Need pics to tell.

Now what does all that mean? You need to post some pics of the system so we can make sense of what you have. All of the above mentioned is illegal for the most part and bares heavy fines if you discharge overboard, with in the 12 mile limit that is. If you get boarded (USCG) and the overboard isn't tied shut and/or there isn't a key operated power switch for the overboard pump, you have some explaining to do.
 
How many do you put in and how often? Where are each of them located?

You put the bromine or Chlorine tabs in the strainer which is before the AC pump. Usually in the stern of the bilge of this boat.

If you want me or someone else to respond quickly quote the post or tag us by using the @ and the avatar name. like this @Skybolt then we will get a notification. Otherwise it won't get seen unless we look for it. For some reason the new post links don't always show all of the new post's.
 
What are these holders for behind the port panel? Including those black plastic brackets on the support ?

Cup/bottle holders, the two sliding cabinets on the port side are/were Sea Rays answer to a bar. The smaller door is a sink and the larger door is for bottles and glasses.
