Re: Preventing chafe of rode on bow cleat...

Is this your anchor rode, or a mooring/dock line? I also use used fire hose for chafe guard like Capta and it works great. It looks like the loop is wearing from rotating around the base of the...

Re: Is there an in and out for the coolant hoses to water heater?

IIRC (it's been several years) the outlet near the circulating pump is the "out", so that would be the "in" on the heater. I don't think it really matters though.

Re: Yanmar 3GM oil line failure

arf145- yep, that's the one. Ours failed at the second bend to the left of your arrow, after the fitting. The replacement line that we installed was a copper material whereas the original was steel...

Re: Spacing & how many mast steps?

Denise- I've never installed steps but had steps on our previous boat. I think you should start at the top - figure out how far down from the top of the mast you want the two steps to be (essential...

Re: What is the most idiotic mistake you have made on a boat?

In no particular order, but equal in stupidity:
"The weather looks bad, but I really need to get there today"...
"I know the entrance to this harbor, I'm sure I can cut this corner"...
"I know...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

T37- I was thinking the same thing. 80 pages when all that was needed was a one word answer.... YES (flying a pirate flag is seriously lame).

Re: Should Medsailor proactively rebuild his transmission?

Those velvet drives (usually) last forever, even in a commercial fishing boat. Even my old Volvo trans went 5000 hrs before needing a new clutch. If it was working OK I would leave it alone. Worst...

Re: Review of 1962 chinook 34

I love those old Chinooks, great lines and from the little I know they were built like tanks. Only sailed one once (on the Columbia), as I recall it went along nicely on a tack in 10-15 knots of...

Two ascenders, GriGri and a dedicated climbing rope works well for me.

Re: Obstacle Detection With Infrared Imaging -- A Study

These are becoming pretty popular here in the PNW on power/work boats. The ability to "see" other boats, logs, etc at night or in the fog is nothing short of amazing. The one that I'm personally...

Re: Rolly Tasker Sails, Florida

Lots of threads on this subject.
I've bought two sails from them, rf staysail and a rf genoa, both are excellent (offshore). A lot of people are scared off by the low prices and feel that having...

Re: Water vs Gas

In your boat with the size tanks people have mentioned I think you will either be cluttering the deck with fuel jugs or water anyway (both most likely) and you already have the water tank. Leave it...

Re: Automotive Heater

One of the best upgrades you can do to your boat. You always want to have a ball valve fitted to each hose at the engine so you can shut them off if needed. We use ours year round here in the PNW,...

Re: What would cause this?

Re: What would cause this?

Rich- I think you're right, the repeated hammering over time probably accounts for the key shearing. Glad to hear that MaxProp has come up with a better solution.

Thanks for all the ideas, I'll try to answer the questions in order.

What would cause this?

Kind of a long story so I'll try to be brief. I delivered my brother's 34' Northsea pilothouse from the San Juan Islands to Lake Washington (Seattle) last month. Motored all the way (no wind),...

Re: Cockpit Draining - Below waterline?
