Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

1. CRAZY expensive?? I doubt it.

2.I think you don't need to explain much.

3. If you are norwegian, call the Danish main office, don't see much of a language barrier there.

Re: 2-blade Flexofold Problems

E-mail is not (anymore) a safe form of communcation.
I guess they never received it, due to spam-filtration. (not OP's fault, but the trouble with exentsive spamming).

Re: Lifespan of a Diesel Engine

Just looked in my Volvo Penta MD7B manual today.
It says nothing about running it at specific RPM's.
It did, however state that when sailing, one should start and run the engine for about 15...

Re: Thru hull and seacock installation

Where are they located?

Re: What is the best sailing movie ever?

Deep Water is my fave.
It's a true story and honestly tells about the challenges and beauty of ocean sailing.

Re: Volvo Ocean Race.

It might seem simple, but it's not.
The charts in these areas are raster-images, and therefore the plotter as such does not know the depth. It is just images.

Re: Wet core in the hull - what are the options?

Re: Boat Insurance Rant

With that kind of argument you will still be happy if you have to pay 10 times as much?

Insurance is a betting game, don't pay more than what is fair, unless you want to contribute to the bottom...

Re: Buying my first boat please help

It's quite "funny" to read all this about brokers and surveys as a Dane.
Thousands of second hand boats are sold here every year, and almost none is handled by a broker, nor is there any survey...

Re: Interior Paint- marine grade or not?

My previous boat was painted with non-marine enamel in the forepeak.

Norwegian coast guard boarded the vessel an hour later,...

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Besides the fact, that the boat is dead, doesn't it require some kind for formal education in order to sail a boat of that size in the US?
