3000 Express Projects

Recently purchased a 2001 3000 Express that needs general TLC. Bought in FL, brought back to Ohio. Working on replacing all of the plastic thru Hull fittings with stainless. What a fun project! Luckily I’m a smaller person and am able to wedge myself up in front of the engines, but there still isn’t...

Another 3000 Express Engine Vent Repair

I would also get the thru hulls pulled out as soon as you can, You may find moisture around them. They are easier to destroy from the outside and just push the remains through to the inside. A pair of channel lock pliers can break the flanges off pretty easy.

3000 Express Projects

4068 Also back filled my engine vents with epoxy. I burned a half caulk gun size tube of 4200 and only made it half way around one, then ran out. Had to clean all of it off. Should use a lot less when I replenish my boat glue supply. So if I understand correctly you used epoxy to fill the half roun...

3000 Express Projects

4488 Correct. After filling the backside, I only had to use a small amount of caulk to stick them to the boat. I ran a continuous bead all the way around vs the 2 blobs the factory used originally. Did you block off and just fill around the edges or did you also fill down the center on the back sid...

Windlass wiring 3000 Express

Looks non-factory / fire hazard. I have a maxwell breaker installed in the wood panel in the cabin between the steps and the dinette seat. I believe there is power run directly from the house battery to the breaker, then off to the anchor locker where the relay is. Mine is all large cable (maybe 4 a...

Windlass wiring 3000 Express

It's the red knob down low in this picture.

Looking through my manuals, the Maxwell Freedom 800 model calls for 135A breaker (pretty sure that is what I have). Not sure what windlass is on your boat.

Waste pumpout switch location

In my 3000 Express, the macerator pump switch is next to the toilet and waste tank level indicator.

I have also seen them located in the engine room on the aft bulkhead, port side. (again 3000 Express).
