Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

Without reading back through every post in this thread, and I'm sorry if it's already been said, but does anybody know what company the original poster is referring to? Many of us seem to agree that...

Johnny Depp--wasn't he a transvestite in that movie about pirates few years ago?

Re: masthead sheaves

Sheaves that are made specifically for rope & wire halyards have a groove within a groove. The larger groove fits the rope, and inside that, a smaller one is for the halyard. The edge of the small...

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

If it hasn't been mentioned before, another very important difference between boat wire and auto primary wire is the thickness of the individual strands. Boat wire has much thinner strands. This adds...

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

At some point, perhaps after your interactions with this company are complete, it would be very helpful to know who they are so others don't end up stepping into the same situation.

Fujinon FMTRX binoculars. Incredible optics--you can use them on a dark night.

Re: Trolling

Question about yo-yos and trolling--If you use a line clip, and aren't holding the line when the fish strikes, how do you keep it from unspooling? Is there some way to set up a brake so the whole...

Whatever happens with this thread, I'm just grateful that I didn't have to go the rest of my life not knowing that 'buccaneer' has 2 c's.

Sure, any woman who gets drunk deserves to get raped by some a**hole.

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Was Tristan Jones under 30 when he started his sailing career? (alleged sailing career?) He had a three-legged dog named Nelson, I recall.

And hey, was Tristan Jones's dog lame, or what?

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Some people may still be thinking about their answers.
Meantime, people who keep posting "Is it dead yet?" questions are apt to keep it going forever.
So anyway, what else do you guys want to talk...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Newbies can be so insensitive sometimes. None of this has anything to do with pirate flags.
It's about people's need for validation of their fundamental value as human beings. Can't you see that?...

Re: Need info on a boat!

That's a beautiful boat, but if it's wood, I wouldn't touch it.
I second the idea of getting a small, responsive boat to learn on. Mine was a Tanzer 22. You learn more because the boat responds more...

Re: Bilge pump switch retrofit

Also, re the plumbing, another voice against a check valve. They get stuck.

It's too bad your initial foray into this forum got a little rambunctious--it's the exception and not the rule so don't let it discourage you. Just another lesson in the potential discord inherent in...

Re: Bilge pump switch retrofit

Maybe I wasn't articulate enough.
I just didn't want to waste a lot of time responding to your tone, and your content didn't warrant point-by-point response.
Systems that are unlike yours--I'll...

I'm sure we've all read lots of magazine articles, M., but thanks for your concern over the advisability of having a system that's different than yours.

Maybe a little overstated.
But do I question the constitutionality of speech like "swashy bucklies".

I don't know if I'm repeating what's been said, but I just dealt with this on my boat.
I wired the pump directly to the battery side of the battery switch with an in-line fuse holder--no circuit...

Re: Is there any reason not to move the fuel vent?

Thanks--I hadn't known about those. I'll look into one as a possible solution to the water intrusion problem, whether or not I move the vent from the hull to the outside wall of a coaming.
And since...
