Shipmates:

Two quick questions:

1) I am trying to upgrade my instruments and the Sea Talk 1 cables going
to/from the ST 60 Speed Gage and the ST 60 Depth Gage have been modified
from their original 3 conductor standard cables (there are extra conductors
in each case--the modified Sea Talk 1 cable from the Speed Gage appears to
be running to the ST 4000+ Autohelm while the modified Sea Talk 1 cable
from the Depth Gage seems to be going to the Chartplotter. This cabling
looks to be original on my Hull 767 boat--the PO did not have the boat
long, and I doubt he modified the cables. So if this is the original
cabling, does anyone have a wiring diagram for the instrument cabling? It
is not covered in the manual.

2) Has anyone replaced their LNG tank? Catalina Direct doesn't list one,
and I can't find the type used on the C320 online (size and shape seem to
be important). I was told I should replace it when I had it refilled last
week.

The great advice from you all is always appreciated.

Best,

Normally, instrumentation would have been installed at commissioning by the
dealer, not Catalina.

I had my tank recertified with the current standard valve installed by a
local company that refills propane tanks. Can't exactly remember price
(<$100?), but it definitely was less than a new tank.

You should be able to get the tank recertified. Google recertification for
LNG and you should have someone in your area.

You need to measure, but I believe the 10 pound Trident aluminum tank at Defender Marine is the one.Jack BrennanSonas, 1998 catalina 320Tierra Verde, Fl.Sent from my Galaxy

There was a light weight fibre glass tank in Northern Dream when we bought her several years ago.  It has the advantage of being able to actually see the liquid level through the glass, being light in weight and not corroding.
Check them out.
