Re: How to find electrical load of 20HP diesel

The 2awg is a little thinner & more flexible. With the way by panel & switch is setup, the thinner wire will be much easier to install, in this case. That is..if the wire size is adequate.

Re: How to find electrical load of 20HP diesel

Thanks Maine Sail.

One more question related to this. I'm replacing one section of my starting circuit wiring. I've got a wire running from the battery (20 inches) that goes to a Blue Sea switch,...

Great places to charter?

I've just come back from 16 days on a boat in the BVI. What a fantastic place to sail. Good weather, lots of places to explore, nothing too far from anything.

Anywhere else in the world as good...

Re: Going to BVI! Bring cash?

Everyone ok with leaving cash stashed on the boat?

I could always hide a little zip lock bag of cash somehwere I guess. Are boat break-ins a problem in the BVI?

Re: Going to BVI! Bring cash?

Thanks. About how much cash per day would you think? Could a couple (two people) get by on $50 a day cash? Is that too much?

Going to BVI! Bring cash?

I'm chartering a boat in the BVI in November. What's everyone's experience with credit cards on the islands? Should I just bring cash? I hate to carry around too much cash.

Any suggestions?

Re: Props catching seaweed

Thanks Rik,

You'd think your setup would catch all kinds of stuff! Any my set up would not since it is so protected behind the keel. I don't get it.

Prop looks nice!

Re: Props catching seaweed

Rik,
Do you have a shaft zinc near the prop? Is your prop behind a keel or fully exposed?

Re: 3-blade fixed prop recommendations?

I used to do this with my old setup. I'd buy the thinnest ring-type shaft zinc and just grind it down myself with a bench grinder. Took about a half hour, but it worked well.

Re: 3-blade fixed prop recommendations?

Catboat fan,

How close to the bearing is the front edge of your prop hub?

I agree, I'm going to dive next time I go to the boat and add a shaft zinc.

Re: 3-blade fixed prop recommendations?

This is exactly what I experience, except it happens all the time! I often end up getting in the dinghy at the end of the day to pull seaweed from the prop.

I wonder why my setup is such a...

I've got the stainless sail track off of my mast and before I re-attach I'd like to add a barrier between the two to help prevent corrosion.
