Re: BoatUS membership worth it?

Boat U.S. has always seemed worth it to me. Their member publication/magazine is well written. The discount at West Marine help takes some of the sting out. I get my boat insurance through them...

Re: Best embarkation point for my wife and son

You know what would be nice if you make Block Island in good time? Instead of picking them up back down in CT, sail over to Cuttyhunk. Have them take the little Cuttyhunk ferry out from New Bedford...

Re: Day from Hell? Or learning experience

I'm moored north of the bridge in Cozy Cove (or now called, Back Bay). As you experiment with the water outside the barrier, my suggestion is to get out there in the morning until you get more...

Re: Using diesel tank for gasoline.

Using diesel tank for gasoline.

My little diesel is shot on my Ericson. I hung a 6 hp, 2 stroke off the back. I have an existing 10-12 gallon internal metal fuel tank for the diesel. I would like to clean that out and rig the...

Re: Just bought our first sailboat

It sounds like you are getting a mooring from the city instead of a private place. I do the same and bought my own tackle. As you may know Gifford Street moorings are getting moved around and...

Re: Just bought our first sailboat

Congratulations on your new boat. I keep my boat moored north of Pope's Island and it is a great harbor. Wherever you end up mooring or docking, consider the bridge. I have to wait or call for...

I liked it. His human reactions (not his perfect sailor reactions) were what impressed me. Sitting on a bunk after some disaster with his mind slowly churning through fatigue and pain, he looks...

Re: Outboard repair in CT

Think I got the mix okay and used fresh gas, but maybe some sludge got in.

Re: Outboard repair in CT

Dale, I know that it is hard to say from a distance, but when you say oil mix problem, is that a carb issue or something else? Thanks. Greg

Outboard repair in CT

I picked up an older Johnson 6hp Seahorse that had been sitting for a while, but ran wonderfully for a day after I bought it, but is now not turning over. I'm sure it needs to be gone over. Anyone...

Chicks +1

As earlier mentioned , high top Chucks. Most versatile shoe on the market. Canvas breathes and dries. I like black. I embarrass my family, but function over form.

There are a lot of "big" boats in the 24-27 foot range. My Ericson 25+, for example, full enclosed head. Standing room in cabin for 6' 2". So, you don't have to have a port a potty. Lot of good...

Re: Volvo Penta MD5 Exhaust Pipe Elbow

I left the elbow with a welder over the winter and just got it back. Looks good. They ground it out and welded a piece of stainless in, maybe 5 inches by two inches. Should do the trick. Cost me...

Re: Hello from Boston, MA

Welcome.

Is that the "aboard Madrigal" boat? I used to follow that blog and then it just abruptly ended with no explanation on fate of the boat. In any event, congratulations.
