Re: Flush Outboard

I think it would be a lot easier to figure out a way to lift the motor out of the water, than to figure out how to flush the motor while it is in the water.

Yeah, which is why I see no point in talking to the stump anymore. I just hope that others reading this will realize that sandboy is chock full of BS, on top of not having a clue. I would hate to...

Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

Amazing. You really haven't got the first clue about air pressure, breathing compressed air, and so on. Seriously. You need to enroll yourself in a grade school level science class. You are so...

Re: Short tacking to windward is sailings heavy lifting.

Ditto.


And by doing so, if the day ever comes that you're in a tight channel and your motor fails... No problem. No panic. No need to call for help. You do this all the time. Easy-peasy.

Wow. Just wow. How incredibly mis-informed can a human being be?

No matter what you may (mistakenly) believe, you ARE using a pressurized system. You ARE breathing pressurized air. And you...

Re: Are we in over our heads?

Re: John Vigor's Seaworthiness

I stopped at question #2, which concludes that a wooden hull is necessarily more "seaworthy" than any other material. How idiotic! Yes, there are a lot of seaworthy wood-hull boats out there. But...

Re: Which shoot thru hull depth meter to buy?

If your hull is solid fiberglass then almost any transducer can shoot through it. Here is a good write-up on transducer mounting.

Re: sliding helm seat?

I have a permanently attached cushion that automatically moves with me whenever I move. It's called a fat butt. Very simple to use and always in exactly the right spot.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

Then make one and sell it for a fraction of what all the marine vendors are selling theirs for. You'll make a fortune. You'll be rich beyond the dreams of avarice. What's stopping you?

Oh yeah....

Re: How does the marine industry price?

If you have any real evidence of this, there are a number of regulatory agencies that would be very interested, since this sort of collusion between manufacturers would be completely illegal.

Re: How does the marine industry price?

The marine industry prices things exactly the same way that ALL industries price things, and the same way that WE all price things when we are selling our own stuff... What the market will bear.

Re: C36 and C34 Potential Buy - Surveyor Question

I agree, though I would want to accompany him on the survey, just to be certain he doesn't do a cursory look-over and then recycle his previous survey.

Trust, but verify.

There are a lot of boats available on the west coast of Florida. So, yeah, if you're planning to move down here it would seem silly to buy a boat before you do so.

Re: A sad end for a fine boat

Truth is that if you walk the docks at the average marina around here, probably 1/4th of the boats need to be crunched up just like that. They are not being used, and they are not being maintained. ...
