Re: Splash 2015

Got the boat floating a week ago today. Had a great weekend weather-wise to get the boom on, the standing rigging tuned (mast comes down in the winter), and the sails on. Just have to go sailing...

Re: Marina personnel attached battery wrong

Markwesti, as I understand it the marina worker simply wasn't paying close enough attention and put the battery cables on the wrong battery posts, and it was only for a moment. When the spark or arc...

Re: Marina personnel attached battery wrong

Absolutely, it's Sandusky Harbor Marina on western Lake Erie. This will be my third season with them, and I'm very happy with the service and the facilities, for the most part. It'd be nice if...

Re: Marina personnel attached battery wrong

Thanks All, everything else electrical has so far worked fine. I haven't tested the VHF yet, but I think that's it. I agree, I feel the marina service department is genuinely intending to make it...

Marina personnel attached battery wrong

Hi All,

Re: Learning to sail in Ohio

I took a close-quarters maneuvering course from a guy in Sandusky, if that's close enough for you. I was pretty happy with him. It was about six hours of on-boat training. There were pretty stiff...

Re: How much battery charge to start engine

Cool, thanks all. I love that Magic 8 Ball too! Good idea about the jump starter. I forgot I had one of those, but will definitely be taking it along just in case. :)

Hi All,

I'm scheduled to launch on April 17, and when I made the drive to the boat this past weekend to test the batteries, the starting battery (Group 31 lead acid) showed 12.52 on the...

Re: Ericson 25 vs Catalina 25

Yellow, I'm afraid I don't have a video, but the first year I owned my C25 I didn't have a slip but kept the boat at a mast-up boat yard near the ramp at the busiest reservoir (Alum Creek Reservoir)...

Mercury 3.3 2-stroke question

Hi all,

Looking for advice from folks who own this same model outboard. i bought it used for what I think is a great price, and the PO said it got very little use. I think it's an early 2000s...

Re: Percentage self-taught sailors?

I started out on my own, sort of. My wife at the time had more experience, having sailed a Sunfish as a girl scout once when she was 8 or 9. Seriously tho, neither of us had any idea how to sail,...

Re: Solstice inflatable

Thanks Christian. You press into the tube and consider it inflated at 2 inches of deflection? that seems like a lot, and that it'd still a bit under inflated. And I'm assuming you mean 2 inches...

Re: Solstice inflatable

Well, I went ahead and bought it. For $500 it seemed like a good deal. Key elements about this unit was it's small size and a hard floor. Also, it had great reviews on Amazon. It appears as though...
