That's right. Actually a 3 season tour.

The first season was filmed in black and white. How old are we now? goodness.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Yes, we are old and most of them long gone. Ginger and Mary Ann being the babies of the show are still here and even the Professor at almost 90 is still kicking.

Re: water heater

The original theme song was a 5 hour sail but the producer cut it to 3 to make it more realistic. I mean really, FIVE hours on a power boat??? ( the MV Minnow has been refurbished and is moored just north of Naniamo. Owner wanted to offer tours but couldn't beat the regulations; Canada,you know. If you Google ' 3 hour sail' you will find it all over the world (timing is just right) including my own offering to the touristy masses in Victoria. Shameless plug,it's all for sale,in front of the Empress (where Mary Ann stays when in town)

Sorry about the diversion.
Google any of the marine supply distributors and see what they have to offer.

Re: water heater

Was thinking of replacing mine, though it works fine, just old.... Found a basic same size (around 5Gal) for approx 450.... Would be a straight swap. Starting from scratch? Then that would be the base cost....only can go up....But its awesome!!!

Re: water heater

I recommend the tankcontrol switch be mounted within reach in the galley. That way you can delete it for the toaster and convection oven without blowing the breaker.

Re: water heater

I have never seen a propane water heater that could be installed in a boat and meet ABYC standards. Installing one of these heaters exactly according to the manufacturers instructions is virtually impossible on anything smaller than a megayacht. Some insurance companies will give you grief over such an appliance.

On the other hand if you already have a natural gas furnace running on propane you could "T" into that

Re: water heater

How many outboard boats have a shower anyway? For dishes it's easy enough to heat up a little water on the stove.

I have a hot water heater (and a shower) on my Pearson 28-2. If it dies I'll remove it. It's nice to have, but takes up a lot of space in the lazarette, complicates the plumbing, and is almost never hot when I'd actually want hot water, so it is rarely used.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
