Re: Boat Consultant vs Broker

Only Florida and California currently require licensing. I'm operating out of Houston, but the brokerage firm is based in California, so I'll be pursuing the California license.

Re: I just need a nut

Not sure about what your engine was before, but my Westerbeke M35B used to be a Universal. Also, the block is labeled "Kubota." Maybe yours is a Kubota, too.

Re: Embedded Chain plate maint/replacement

Just a thought, but you could leave the old chainplates where they are and rig new chainplates to the outside of the hull, or in the interior. Once you disconnect the shrouds from the chainplates,...

Re: Gift ideas?

Re: Sailing Alone in the 21st Century

Re: A philosophical divide?

I enjoy doing regular maintenance, although not as much as sailing. For me, I owe the boat the time and effort to keep things in very good condition. Did I enjoy spending half a day last month...
