boatted9 Does anyone of you have a Taylor or Dickenson Cabin Heater aboard. I have a Taylor, excellent heater, but I have a clogged fuel line, so I'm not getting a drip. Any suggestions for clearing since I can't run a wire three feet up the tube? It"s a diesel gravity flow, and I've already tried stabilizer but that didn't help. Any suggestions?

LadySlipperII Hey Tim, it seems we just can't get enough of your advice. We hope you enjoyed your vacation. We missed you for the storm; sat at Dimillos and watched the boat rock. I have been reading about cruising with dogs. Looking forward to some more sailing advice from Shamus.
Your neighbors,

Gracefulpirate Living aboard in Boston. just the summer so far, boat needs hauling for maintenance, so probably keep it out for the winter. 33 feet no problem for youngish (almost fifty) couple.

I do have CO detector. I use the propane sparingly and I open the boat up during the day to dispense the moisture. I throughly clean the interior surfaces often. Ive even washed the lead ballast. Two girls caught pnumonia after separate stays on board so I cleaned every part of the interior I could reach. I run the bilge ventilator daily as well. Im doing my best preventing explosions, suffocations and unhealthy conditions.

Foraging for firewood is a bit difficult with the four feet of snow about but luckily im slipped up near some boat builders with plenty of hardwood scraps. It seems Im ruffing it a bit more despite the slightly milder climate. Right on to you my fellows chasing the dream!

miatapaul It is nice to see an article that is positive! Most of the time it is articles about how these miscreant liveaboards are ruining the world. When the bottom line is that it is some developer that wants the space. Seems to be happening in the North West a lot lately. I will be living aboard this spring, and will be doing it year round in New York. I must say it seems that Maine has a real respect for the individual from everything I have read and that is reflected in the tone of the article.

eherlihy Tim,

I just noticed your post. Congratulations on selling the house, and moving aboard!

Now, if I could only convince my wife...

WanderingStar Thanks. I don't live aboard, but I do winter in. I have no cover, so I still shovel snow off the decks. But I did sail yesterday.
