Re: Older Boat Insurance

That's not a bad price. I wouldn't mind paying that, but much more and it just wouldn't be worth it to me.

My truck is liability only. If a tree falls on it I'll get scrap value and move on...

Re: Older Boat Insurance

Just so we can get everyone on the same page here...

Are we talking liability only or full coverage?

I've never had a (power) boat fully covered, only liability. It's never been more than...

Re: Nuclear s(n)ubs

If you're operating in the vicinity of naval vessels on a regular basis, I'd suggest an inexpensive rangefinder.

Check eBay, a cursory search there turned up a few units in the $100-$150 range....

Re: Family sailing report with photos and embedded questions

honestly I would never drink from a potable water system on a boat/rv. A municipal water supply is a sealed, pressurized system that's always moving. A boat/RV tank gets filled from a garden hose,...

Re: Would you buy a boat from eBay??

Zombie thread, but I'll add my input. I sold my last boat (18' ski boat) on eBay.
I welcomed buyers to look at it in person. Only one did, he didn't win.
I required a $200 deposit within several...

Re: sailing in a thunderstorm

The only certain thing about lightning strikes is that there is no certainty as to what it will and will not destroy.

I've seen lightning bubble and crack a nonconductive fiberglass radome on a...

Re: New guy with dumb questions.

Liability only should be $150/year or less, nothing if covered by homeowners policy (have to check into that.) I don't finance toys.

I don't plan on using much fuel, the whole reason why I'm...

Re: New guy with dumb questions.

Ok, one more dumb question. Maybe this one isn't as dumb, but I already had the thread going so whatever. :p

Trying to figure up yearly costs for a leave in. All my other boats have lived on...

Re: Looked at a boat last night...Update.

While I'm sure this would work... a far less dangerous option would be to rent an ozone generator. While ozone is harmful, and the area would need to be sealed, ozone generators can be switched on...

Re: Looking at C-27's in VA/MD

Did you ever find a boat? I'm a bit to the south (richmond area) and I've seen C-27s for much cheaper. I'm sure some of the cheapies were junk but plenty in the 4-8 range, and the ones I've seen...

Re: Looked at a boat last night...Update.

Honestly the fact that they didn't even try to start the motor in the first place means they know EXACTLY what they have, but your offer was like reality slapping them in the face. (that's not a bad...

Re: Looked at a boat last night...Update.

I may be new to sailing, but I'm not new to boats. I tried what you are trying and it sucks. I don't mind working on boats either but I like at least a punch list.

Your post resonated with me...

Re: New guy with dumb questions.

Thanks for the quick replies....

Yes, I'm referring to fiberglass boats. And while I may have dumb questions, I'm smart enough to stay away from wood boats ;)

It just got to the point where...

New guy with dumb questions.

I've done quite a bit of research on sailng recently, and a few things have left me with more questions than answers. Most involve maintaining them; I've owned a variety of powerboats since I was a...
