Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

The point is risk reduction.

If I can choose between a gas engine, which has a higher risk of safety issues, or diesel, I'll choose diesel. You can't deny or argue that gas engines have a...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

The value of the boat will go up with a diesel, but it won't increase by the value of the labor and diesel you put in. If you plan on keeping the boat for a long time, then the investment can even...

Re: Another fatal attempt at "Youngest to circumnavigate"

Regarding instrument flying...

Flying instruments really isn't that hard, but it takes a lot of proficiency and training to get used to the environment. In general aviation, there are a LOT of...

Re: Cutless Bearing Sledge Hammer Installation

This kind of stuff boils my blood.

The amount of half a**ed crap I've found boatyards doing is absolutely astonishing. I've just come to the conclusion that you either have to watch over their...

Re: BoatUS membership worth it?

Maybe I should have clarified, I wasn't responsible, but I was on board and the owner was responsible for the bill. He showed me the total after they completed pulling us off.

He was insured, so...

Re: Sailing around the world on a $10,000 sailboat

What were they asking for her?

If they interior is missing, at least they saved the next person the effort of taking it out :) The deck was definitely stripped down and left out, you can tell the...

Re: Sailing around the world on a $10,000 sailboat

No, I took it myself. We were looking at a Pearson 35 in nearby a yard and she was one of the boats in the derelict section, which is one step from "abandoned" (a pile of boats in the corner of the...

Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

Oh, the best OB bracket for the money is the Garhauer OB-125.

I think I paid $180 for it and the quality is far superior to any of the others I looked at, but at about half the price. I do not...

Re: Adding a auxiliary outboard.

Make sure you use a mount that is spring loaded to assist with the motors weight and has enough travel to get deep in the water.

How thick is your transom? I'd think a 1in backing plate would...

Re: Albin Vega or Pearson Triton 28?

Oh, I agree on the beam and age issue, they don't have to be new/light/beamy boats to have functional interiors.

I like the interiors on these boats:

Vancouver 25

Re: Thinking of Losing My Inboard

I posted in the thread linked earlier with my thoughts. I seem to be in the minority of people that have an inboard boat with an outboard and actually like it, despite it's flaws.

That said, I'm...

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

There is no reason to get a 9.9 on this size boat, 6 HP will do really well and only weighs 75lbs. We paid $1500 for ours, reinforcing the transom cost less than $20, and the mount $250 ($400 if you...

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

FWIW I also evaluated electric and decided against it. It wouldn't cost us much more to put a diesel in and the range was pitiful without carrying 1000lbs in batteries. The folks I talked with about...

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

No electric start, I don't think that's an option for the Tohatsu models, I could be mistaken, but I know ours doesn't have it. Ours starts pretty easily though, we also pull it out of the water when...

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

Our boat is also 27ft and displaces close to 8000lbs, she was original designed for an 8hp inboard. The inboard was a block of rust and I didn't want to pay close to 3x what we paid for the boat to...

Re: spent my life savings on a boat, looking for work.

There are a lot of trolls here, some with very high post counts that will try to bait you into responding. If you ignore them and let them think they won, they'll go troll someone else. You aren't...

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

Wow, that bad huh? I had no idea. We paid a guy $20/hr to fill, fair, and paint our decks along with doing our bottom. That's the cheapest boat labor I've seen, but I figured closer to $40 was...

Re: Outboard on 1974 Pearson 10m?

I think the amount of work and cost involved with an inboard will depend on what's currently in the boat. Are the thru hulls there? Prop shaft? Tank? Was it an A4 or a diesel? Are you willing to do...
