Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Hey, no problem. My wife has a long list of boat projects for me to do before we leave in Oct. Plus, I've got my own list to boot (those 2 1/2 year old Interstate SRM 27's are toast, so that's one I'm bummed about). We'll catch you down in the islands one day. All the best, man!

I've got plenty of pics - and video - and measurements - and bits and pieces - and everything else you can imagine. But honestly I can't give a rundown right now. I just have to let things move along and see if we can get things resolved.

Sorry dude.

seaner97 Debate is a pretty big word for him, too. But it's also a pretty strong one for the exchange we had.

See that's some good edumucating right there. Four syllables. We just call it fancy lawyery stuff 'round here

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

Back on the boat this weekend. I had the same intermittent power issue with the DC when I got here. The bilge pump was not working. I grounded the system to the engine mount steel angles and it's all good again.

Now, while you guys debate educational stuff, I'm working to get our baby back away from the dock and out to sea. It's likely going to take a couple of months (or more) to get through all the jurisprudence. I hate jurisprudence. I'll let you know what's up when it's appropriate.

We will BFS again. Mark my words.

Smackster doesn't mind a wee bit of thread drift while we are waiting for him to spill the beans on the Yanmar.
Around here it's generally of three major types:

Religious, antigovernment, or sheer arrogance. The type you're talking about is such a wee minority that I sort of forget it even exists.

And best of luck with the cruise. I'm a big proponent of well rounded education, and experiential definitely has a spot in there.

And I'm looking forward to reading about the bang, too.
