Re: Marina Electrical Problems

Maine Sail, Thanks for the input. In the back of my mind I sort of knew I shouldn’t be jamming the test leads from my pocket multi meter (radio shack) into the marina receptacle. My question now...

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

Yes, I was hoping that a certified marine electrician would weigh in (Mainesail for example). I'm reluctant to stick a couple of probes in a socket just because someone on the internet tells me to. ...

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

Very clever ideas, Takefive. In regards to current drop in the boat, wouldn't it be minimal going from the connection to the power panel? (assuming no shorts or loose connections). So my simple 30A...

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

O.K., more questions. (Paging Dr. Mainesail, paging Dr. Mainesail) 1) where do I get such a meter? 2) how do I wire it up? And, 3) How do voltage in the 30A twist-off socket while using my old...

Re: Marina Electrical Problems

This brings up an interesting question Classic. How many people have an ACV meter wired into their 120V panel? and if so, is it switched or "always on"?

Re: Can I reef with this furler

Ians0012, you might want to check out the C34 website (C34IA.ORG) and pose your questions there. I know of no rudder issues other than normal were and tear. If you have the sail/hull number, you...

Re: Cruising gear advise needed "LIST"

Every year, different friends of ours take off for south of the border and their last year is always consumed by massive boat projects. They often are in a mad dash to get them completed in San...

Re: Cruising gear advise needed "LIST"

Itgoshen, You and I are in the same (figurative) boat. Our schedule for Mexico is 2015 or 2016 and we are close together from the boat preparation standpoint (I really need to write down my projects...

Re: Hopes and dreams. Is this realistic?

Sherwood, just in case you’re wondering how it works around here - We old timers have a random number generator. If it is an even number, we “dump” on you. We’re neutral if it is an odd number and...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

Not at all North. I’m beginning to like your boat more and more. It is clean and things are installed in an orderly fashion – a sign of a conscientious previous owner. Don’t over think your...

Re: Birth place of the U.S. Navy

Yes, homing pigeons didn’t take up much hanger space and didn’t require arrestor hooks.

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

Interesting comment Jeff. Here in windy San Francisco, C34’s and C36’s command premium prices whereas I know of two brokers who are reluctant to list Hunters as they are generally hard to resell out...

Re: How does the marine industry price?

North, are you thread drifting from homemade anemometers to battery boxes? Are those photos of your new boat? Very clean spaces! I would route those straps underneath the battery platforms if they...

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

Can I play? Definitely Rum (Mai Tai’s taste terrible when you make them with bourbon).

Next Competition: Whiskey or Tequila?

Re: Catalina or Hunter?

I have owned a C34 for fifteen years and have been very happy with it. It is a big boat and is actually closer to 35 feet than 34. The C34 and C36 are very similar. The main difference being the...

Re: Concerned about condition of the mast before buying. Advice?!

Pretty ugly pictures Gator. If you don’t mind me asking, what is the boat and the asking price? Link to a website? It looks like you have a lot of water intrusion where the turning blocks are...

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Of course, this being British built who knows what the building practices were (I used to own an Austin Healy so I’m familiar with the concept of “what were they thinking?”). Asbestos absorbs water...

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Pupil, do you have a link to the ad for the boat? Is this a “Sandy” or “Katrina” boat? It looks like it was at least partially submerged at some point. The standards regarding plumbing and...

Re: Prep boat's INTERIOR for possible knockdown

You don't have to suffer a knockdown in order to trash a cabin. Sailing in storms/high winds/ large or confused seas will "toss" a cabin. The advice and comments so far have been good. A couple of...
