Re: Underwater Lights

..... for about a minute or so.

Re: Choosing a wind generator

Prior .... if I'm correct the blue blades are not original equipment. The SilentWind people sell the blue blades with an adaptor to fit onto an Air X. Their claim is that this makes for a quieter Air...

Re: Soft shackle with jib sheets

I have used one and found nothing to criticise. Also known as a Dutch shackle btw.

Re: Generator

Mate I won't even run our wind genny at night and I am obsessive about slapping halyards. Even music and voices need to be toned down after dusk, not to mention those who would engage in a bit of...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The whole LED discussion has worn out its welcome in this thread. Any further discussion on that subject should be taken to an LED (new or existing) thread.

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Reality is if you want to dish it out you need to be able to take it when the barbs come back at you. Wilson obviously has a problem with that but hey, thats his problem he has to learn to deal with...

Re: What make is this boat? Any ideas please

Part of me agrees with Van de Stadt but no smoking gun. There is a similarity to the VDS39 which was built by Dehler as the Dehler 39CWS but that's not 12.5m (41') and/or the VDS Caribbean at 40'....

Re: W D Schock called me a freeloader for asking for info about my boat

We will never reach agreement on this. For sure the OP's request was very poorly worded but the response was less than diplomatic and very short sighted.

I'm a small business owner and will...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

Re: Another boat lost in Atlantic

I confess I think its a good idea Mark and I'll take it up with Admin. We mods only keep an eye on things and make suggestions for improvements. We don't actually design the forum layout.
