Re: Torqeedo

One way to address the range issue is through the use of a solar panel. Per Torqueedo, not only can you recharge the battery using a solar panel that they sell, you can also run the engine...

Re: What is installed cost of 12,000 BTU CruiseAir Reverse Cycle?

I recently purchased a through-hatch A/C unit this summer, and since that has been raised a suggestion, I thought I'd throw in my $.02. For its purpose, it works. Down here in FL, it is a necessity...

Re: Torqeedo

I purchased a Torqeedo 1003 for our dinghy this past winter...while I cannot comment on its use for a 20' sailboat (others have), I've been pleased with it so far for dinghy use. When you throttle...

Re: Topping Lift from shroud cleat on the backstay??

Our first boat, a 22', had the topping lift attached to the backstay...it did its job in holding the boom up. However, I completely agree with Minnesail...I also forgot to detach it from the...

Re: ASA 101 Prep?

Re: Sabre 28/30 for a newer sailor?

We moved up from a 22' sailboat to a 28' sailboat without any issues, and have been a huge fan of the extra room/displacement...however, with a new addition to the family we will be looking to move...

Re: Anchoring Etiquette?

How big was this cove? Could you have anchored where his boat wouldn't have interfered with yours? 4 boat lengths (100 feet?) sounds kind of close for only two boats in a cove, but without knowing...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

I'm not accusing anyone of fraud...you or WM. All I'm saying is that when you found out it didn't have what you wanted, why not simply return it? Now, if WM refused to accept it as a return and you...

Re: Florida is at it again

If I'm not mistaken, a companion bill in the house (presumably the one already in existence) would need to be merged with the Senate bill to form one bill...and that one bill would then be voted on...
