Petrol Engine Compartment Blowers.

Hi, Looking for comparisons regarding engine compartment blowers for petrol engines. Whilst going through checks I assumed the blowers were working until I realised that 2 were not. I have a late 80's early 90's Targa 27 with twin AQ171C engines. The compartment has 3 blowers and whilst fault tracin...

Re: Window replacement - Targa 27

Hi – Many thanks for your excellent response MS, that’s really useful information. On mine it IS the aluminium frame with a black pvc “herzim” strip covering the screws. The actual window may well be toughened acrylic but it is curved and not flat, which makes things expensive and only a limited num...

Re: Window replacement - Targa 27

Hi, What exactly is the problem? I am interested, as I also have a Targa 27 and thought about replacing that window. However when I made tentative enquiries the cost was starting to get prohibitive. I believe Trend Marine in Norfolk make a lot of the windows for Fairline but they did not have a temp...

Re: Fairline Targa 27 - Wiring Diagram

Hi – Not sure if I can help but... The outdrive wiring diagram for mine is found in the Engine Operators Handbook. If it’s a Volvo Penta you can normally download the manual for free from their website. Also the wiring diagram is also in the workshop manual for the outdrive. There are many engine an...

Re: Targa 27 driver bench wanted

Hi, I am not sure if this helps but I have just had my Targa 27 external cushions re-uphostered. The Bench Seat on mine was made out of 12mm ply – angled to shape, glued, screwed and fibre glassed on the seams. The clever bit was the cushions also on 12 mm ply with the foam shaped to fit. The proble...

Fairline Targa 27 cockpit upholstery renewal.

Hi - I have a 1989 Fairline Targa 27 and in the process of having the cockpit seating and side panels recovered and just thought I would share my findings for anyone contemplating the same. The vinyl was well worn and certainly needed renewing and the white looks grey when compared to samples. First...

Re: Targa 27 Propeller advice.

Hi many thanks for your offer it is much appreciated, do you have the part numbers? My main concern is if I have the correct size props for my Targa 27 as I am having odd manoeuvring difficulties. Of course it could be just a nut loose on the steering wheel syndrome, but no matter how much I practic...

Targa 27 Propeller advice.

Hi, I know that propeller selection can be a bit of a black art and I really should stick with my current setup .. but I thought I would ask the question.. I want to buy a couple of new propellers for next season for my Targa 27. It has twin AQ171c engines with single prop SP-A drives. The current s...

Targa 27 - Engine Vents.

Going back on some old posts, there was mention of water entering the engine compartment via the engine vents on the transom when you come off the plane. I am getting exactly that and I have been trying to trace if I have a leak and initially assumed that it was the rubbing strake. However after sev...

Can anyone advise what the hull to deck filler / sealant is in the attached photograph please. As part of my winter project I intend to replace the rubbing strake and also replace the hull fill...

Re: Bow Thruster

Hi, there was a Targa27 in our local marina that had a bow thruster fitted. I only saw it in passing so cannot help regarding the installation but it certainly looks possible. I must admit it would be quite handy having one fitted when you are single handed! It would be interesting to see pictures o...

Wiring question – Targa 27

Hi – looking for help on the electrical installation on a twin engine Targa 27, I am assuming it would be similar to the Sunfury and the Carrera. Is there any reason why on a twin engine installation that on one of the alternators, the charging wire is not connected? The starboard engine is supposed...

Fuel Tank advice.

I have a Fairline Targa 27 circa 1989 and it’s reasonably new to me. However I have been getting starting problems on which I have traced to muck in the twin carbs. I have stripped and rebuilt the carbs with the kits and all was fine. Then after a few weeks it would happen again, same process of c...

Hi ? on my Targa 27 they are the Vetus ORW12SET. Have a check to see if they are the same ? ASAP sell them. Mine were a little intermittent at the start of the season but I cleaned the insides with contact cleaner and they are fine now.

Hi ?Just to let you know that it?s all working now. Sometimes it?s easy to get caught in a loop and although you can check everything if one thing is done out of order you can still have problems. It looks like dirt in the fuel and despite cleaning the carbs, re-cleaning again did the trick, especia...
