Re: Chesapeake Bay Eats

Anyone in the Smith Creek area of the Potomac should try Cali's on Jutland Creek. It's at the campground less than a mile up the creek where it joins Smith Creek. They have short hours, I think...

Re: Display Coast Guard Registration Numbers

I think inside a cockpit locker is a great location. It is technically the inside structure of the hull and, if painted on, is not easily removed. You could probably even put it on the underside of...

Re: Nettle Net

There is no way I 'm wearing cooking oil and pantyhose to take a dip on a hot summer day.

Nettle Net

Summer is coming. Last year was hot on the east coast. It drives me nuts that you can't go in the water because of the sea nettles. What kind of experiences have people had with the jellyfish...

Swego

Anyone know anything about Swego.com. They are an Origo distributer among other things. Good prices. Internet Explorer gives me a warning about their certification being expired and I should not do...

Re: Operating a boat in another state?

I wouldn't advise it. I drive 6.5 hours to my boat and it is doable for me but that is because I am retired. I held off buying a boat until I was retired because I felt it would be really hard to...

Re: Westmarine - the good and the bad

Our store holds a military appreciation weekend about once each quarter with many items selling at or near wholesale. Available to vets and active duty. I thinks that 's pretty cool.

Re: 2013/2014 Maintenance Season

I am happy to say that all I need to do is change out my shaft zinc and wash the decks. I left the boat in the water this year so was able to use it a few times as well as do a few upgrades that were...

Re: Patching a holding tank

A thread like this helps me feel a little better about the big bucks I just spent on a composting head.

Re: STUFF to seal leak at mast step

Thanks, but I don 't see how that will do it.

Re: hull and deck no core?

Just curious. How did the o.p. confirm that his boat has solid decks?

What is the likelihood that my 1966 Pearson Wanderer (hull #5) has solid glass decks?

Re: STUFF to seal leak at mast step

Thanks for the input. I like the idea of a boot but the shape of the mast step presents a problem. You can't see it in the photo but the step is really a rectangle shape with about 24 inches on the...

No. I thought to apply it outside at the step.

I mean "unstepping" the mast. Damn autocorrect.

STUFF to seal leak at mast step

I've got a small leak that comes through the cabin top where the mast wires run. I'm thinking it probably comes under the mast at the step. Anybody see where it could do any harm to spray that cavity...

Re: Next week in ft myers

You might try South West Florida Yacht Charters. They used to have an office in or near Ft. Myers. I chartered with them years ago and was very satisfied.

Re: Nature's Head or Airhead

Thank you, everyone, for the input. I'd say we will go on with our initial choice of the Airhead, primarily because of the home style seat and being able to empty the urine bottle without opening the...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

Glad to say we had our first sail of 2014 on Sunday morning on the lower Potomac. Beautiful day, great wind, and the boat easily hitting 7 knots. Wondering why we were the only boat out except for...

Nature's Head or Airhead

We are just about ready to buy a composter. We are leaning toward the Airhead. The advantages we see are the more of a household type of seat and the fact that it does not need to be opened to empty...

Re: Marine Head in an Aquarius 21

A portapotti is not quite as bad as a bucket and a bag, but not a whole lot better. For a day or two out they are fine. Just be sure you guys agree on who will service it and what that person's...
