Locate some other Tohatsu owners and see if it's a common issue. There may be a fix for it. My first thought that you might have a plugged passageway. Or it may be the work of the EPA. If that is the cause, there may still be an answer...

Re: why I like Sailnet

I think Dylan just crapped in my pants!
Just taking the piss out of this.

I also enjoy the fact that Sailnut is not entirely a homogeneous US membership. The Brits may be all hot and bothered about flag etiquette and VHF radio protocol. The Americans love their God, Guns and Country, football, beer and conspicuous consumption. The Canucks strike me as smarter then your average bear or American, eh? The Aussies blunt humour I find to be charming as well. And then there is the Irish... who can say anything negative about them?

Who did I leave out?

Just pissing in your pocket after all.

Re: why I like Sailnet

Smacky, lol, you think he's so cool you thought i was talking about your nemesis.


I'm not smarting, I'm just waiting to see some results instead of posturing. those of us who have BTDT are always amused by those who think they know a better path while insisting on ignoring the map, the terrain and the weather.
Show me, don't tell me, sunshine.
Results trump rhetoric.

"nemesis"? Really? Seriously? (It was the "pictorial purse-emptying pretty pinnace porn" that threw me...i.e. - Photoshopping dudes in drag. He does have a gift, you know.)

Just wait pal. I'll be basking in the glow of my runny yellow orange peel while you're spraying your tub for the 10th time.
