question Fuse location (Chivas)
Posted: 4:42:05 pm on 6/10/2012 Modified: Never
 
I've have a '85 MK V. My steaming / bow deck light doesn't light. I changed the lights while the mast was down this spring. Now that it's up they don't work. I've tried to find the fuses without much luck. Can someone tell me if they exist or where they have been located?
Cheers.

Stephen:
Mine (and on every Mark V, I've seen) are controlled by a switch (which is a circuit breaker) on the switch panel directly above the engine conpartment and below the companionway.
On my boat we had to rework the wiring at the thru deck connection as there was a break in the wires.

Hi:
I agree with Steve Reid that the problem is most likely terminal corrosion at the mast/deck connector.  You may find it helpful to look at Maine Sail's article on marine connections:

Stephen are there any other Mark V's at Napean? If so how many and are they racing?

Out of 34 C&C27's at the club, 4 are Mk v's. I personally don't race (yet) so I don't know who races from the rest of the mk v's. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. You planning on coming to the NOD?

Stephen:
No not planning on coming for the NOD, but considering trying to get some sort of an interclub/area challange going for the Mark V's. I think I can stir up interest her in the Toronto area and if there are 4 or 5 Mark V's that race in the Ottawa area maybe we can throw down the gauntlet for Mark V supremicy. If there is interest in your area why not contact me directly by emai srsail at rogers dot com or we can discuss by phone 905-731-5825
