Re: Full keel or larger boat???

I think you'll find either will be more stable. I moved up 4 feet, and added a cut-away full keel and you can definitely tell the difference. Just stepping on the boat from the dock feels more...

Tiller Pilot Choices - Simrad TP30-32

My boat originally had a Simrad TP-30 tiller pilot. Apparently it was stolen before I bought it. I am thinking of replacing it with a TP32. Anyone have an opinion of these either way?

The guy in...

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

If a boats owner leases a slip, pays the moorage, pays any "liveaboard" fee required, and pays the mobile-pumpout guy to come pump out his boat, can he stay? The whole thing smacks of 'we need to get...

Re: Possible 27' Bluewater Boats

Webb Chiles claimed to have never spent more than $10,000 on a boat (can't remember where I read that)...but I'm sure that does not include fitting out and provisioning. Also Webb Chiles is a bad-ass.

Re: Diving right into a Liveaboard

Another problem you may run into is financing. You can only get financing on a boat if YOU have a permanent physical address. Banks like to know where you are in case you miss a payment, and they...

Re: How crazy would I be to...

No worries, my boat is not for sale. The comment was in reference to another poster who said electronics are obsolete the day after you install them. So I guess all your electronics are obsolete too....

Re: Sailing Around the World And Getting By Without Cash

Sexist maybe, but true non the less. Remember the German girl fixing up the sh*tty aluminum boat in Panama? She also has a donate button, and I'll bet you anything she pulls in more than...

Ha, well done indeed! You are obviously a gentleman and a scholar....(...or read too many sailing books). :)

Re: Sailing Around the World And Getting By Without Cash

That girl has a bunch of videos on Vimeo.com. I forget what they are called. I think they might be under her name - Emily Richmond. If anyone is interested.

Re: How crazy would I be to...

Not to beat a dead horse here, I understand your point (I think). But I have 10 year old radar, a 10 year old hand held GPS, and a couple 10 year old VHF radios that all work great. Add a 5 year old...

Re: How crazy would I be to...

So you mean "existing electronics don't add value to a used boat" not "electronics are obsolete the minute you install them"......which is how I read that.

If I install new electronics on my boat...

Re: How crazy would I be to...

What does this mean? So all of us have obsolete electronics?

There are plenty of boats that would be worth installing a new motor and new electronics in. BUT...in my opinion you would have to buy...

Re: How do these seacocks look?

As some are suggesting here, you will certainly die the next time you step foot on the boat, and probably take all aboard down with you, not to mention the environmental disaster of the oil and fuel...

Re: Dropped my water fill cap.

HR didn't specify the brand, only that it 'was' Italian. My fuel fill and waste cap's are bigger. The water fill is an odd, smaller size. I may very well end up replacing the flanged fitting, but it...

Re: Dropped my water fill cap.

Did I say I lost it? I meant, I am storing in on the bottom just off the port bow, for safe keeping. This way I'll always know where it is. :)

I do have a net. I gorilla-taped two boat hooks together, fully extended, with the net on the end, and could just reach the bottom. The bottom is hard mud, I think I even felt the cap once....but my...

Dropped my water fill cap.

Well its official, I'm a clumsy dufus. :( I dropped my water fill cap into the drink. The problem is, it's an odd size-smaller than standard. I'm sure it's metric and appears to be approx 32 mm OD at...
