Oh yes, the closer to NYC the higher the price. Try to rationalize $62\ft! Got stuck with a winter storage after purchase last year. Brutal compared to the upper Chesapeake.

Re: The Swedish client

Gorgeous, thank you for sharing this. The line of the bow knocks me out. Even if you hadn't mentioned the nationality of the client I would have still seen a Norseman gazing at the fiord over that...

Re: Am I Nuts?.....And if so, what do I do now?

I dread the day might have to move inside to a slip. The mooring is a far more peaceful and secluded place than 6' from a slip neighbor. Some summer weekends it sounds like a nonstop luau in there....

Also pumped some fuel from the bottom of the tank the day this whole thing started. Just a 1/2" diameter bead of water in the bottom of a half gallon jug. Not too bad for a whole season.

Fuel issues in my Yanmar 1GM10.

It began 'sagging' at cruising speeds several weeks ago. Throttle behavior is normal up to 2000 rpm. Above that it starves and loses power and rpms. It can rev...

I could make a pattern, but not until she's hauled out at the end of the season. That should be mid-November. Hope you find something before then!

Agreed! At 4pm the water was as high as I've ever seen at the marina, with 2 hours to go. I had to leave, so the ultimate mark is unknown.
