Completed the Tortuga Triangle Trip in May, GPS worked without issue. Back light worked for Nav at night, almost a little too bright. Found the company out in California that supplied the multi-pin power connector and made a 12 volt power cable. It save the batteries for emergency use. I took both units and compared their performance, not much difference, both lead to G1 at the North channel to Key West.... Could add the NEMA computer interface to the cable in the future.

Here ya go..

under 20 bucks.

Galley Sole Replacement

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

$5.99 Sunbrella remnant.
Scrap of pvc pipe.
$5.55 of line.
Being able to sleep in past sunrise, and keeping the hatch open when it rains? priceless.

It took about 6 yrs of searching to do it for the cheap(under $70 delivered). New ones were over $400 and custom built ones were quoted over $800, I love going to the Annapolis boat show each fall, but the prices are scarry.... By luck I found one listed on that EBay, again, and the lister was willing to take pics with a yard stick so I could do a check with autocad to see if it would work. Perfect it is not, I would have preferred one more stem in the water, but is works as a recovery ladder and a swim ladder. I was told a story of a sailer that fell overboard and managed to grab a sheet, but was unable to pull himself back onboard. I single hand, thus the ladder.
I added an extra bottom step, with 9' of 2" diameter double braid, tied to the last step. works well, not bad on the bare feet, and price was right....

That's enough space to put a little touch-screen computer in there

Access to Swim Ladder

To eliminate the need to awkwardly clamber over the fixed rail across the stern when going for a dip, we hacksawed out the center section, used 90-deg. elbows to tidy up, and fit across a short lifeline w/pelican hook.
