I would like that link to the gelatin beads also because all we have here are anal beads and they make the boat smell like $hlt.

Ok - away from anal beads and the twisted sister spin on this topic - we use crystal beads called Fresh Wave - Fresh Wave for the Naturally Green Home... - ignore please the rather spa-like/new age website. There is a store location tab at bottom of the site but we went to the web and bought 'em through drugstore.com (I think.) Two open jars lasted March - December 2007 and coupled with two small DampRid containers and forward facing dorades kept the interior of our 50' cutter fresh and un-scented below. And no electric, etc.

Keip - thanks for the question. Our 2000 Furuno 1833 didn't speak the same language protocol as the fluxgate for the RM autopilot (also 2000.) Hence a new, sigh, fluxgate. BOAT (break out another thousand.)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

i just discovered the most amazing device. It is really expensive but I am in love - as much as you can be with this type of mechanical device (i will leave that to your imagination). anyway it is one of those ozone air purifiers. My AC guy has let me try it free for a few weeks. You turn it on and leave the boat, with all the cabinets, bilges etc open and when you get back after a few hours the place smells fresh and clean. It removes mildew, musty smells, head smells, bilge smells etc. It even removed the musty smells from my clothes. You can run it on low all day or you can just do the vacate mode. It runs about 1.5 amps. It is called "Fresh Air" by Ecoquest. It is $799 but worth every penny for someone who has a real sensitive nose like i do.

Well - in case you haven't been following the thread - I hope your wallet is not as sensitive as your nose is. When you run that thing and repairs bill rack up for mysterious failures such as hoses disintegrating...I imagine your wallet will follow suit in falling apart as many times it will be yanked out to pay to fix something as a result of continuous usage of that device...

Just keep your boat clean!

Just keep your boat clean, the bilge dry and head treated and smells will not be an issue...!
