Re: Luger Voyager 30

Actually looks a substantial vessel, from a decent designer even if she won't be the 'prettiest girl at the dance'..

Finish quality is always going to be the big variable with what were...

Re: Westerbeke whine

I see they have my 'Bowman' core at $284... not a bad price comparatively.. We paid more from Seakamp but got it same day after driving to Bellingham.

Re: Westerbeke whine

Seakamp Engineering in Bellingham got me a replacement core - same day - for our Bowman HE.. not $100 but not $700 either.. Apparently they stock unfinished cores and complete to length on order....

Re: Can you run a dehumidifier too much?

Diesel smells are hard to cover up - better to find and eliminate any raw fuel leakage, in however small amounts.

Re: Re power choices for Sweden 36

Not a Volvo fan.. for many reasons, parts and sooty/smoky operation when cold.. Think it would come down to Beta/Kubota or Yanmar.. whichever was the fewer required mods.

Re: Manual Toilet Questions

The Jabscos do a decent job at a price that almost makes them 'disposable'..

That said, I do think there's value in a more high-end head that's kept in shape and treated to the occasional rebuild...

Re: Can you run a dehumidifier too much?

YES YOU CAN!

When I first set ours up I ran it for about 5 days on continuous... my wooden sliding doors shrunk enough to fall out of their tracks.

Since then I leave it set for 50%. Seems to...

Re: Grenada cruising observations

Having done the chain in a half dozen different trips from St Maarten to Barbuda to Grenada I'd agree with those assessments.

On a 36 footer we were almost always the smallest boat in the basin....

Re: Airmar P79 troubleshouting

How is the puck attached to the inside of the hull? If there are air gaps or a broken layer in the adhesive (and any relative movement when sailing) this might produce the symptoms you describe.

Re: Cockpit tent

Jib only.... the Bimini won't allow a mainsail, so might as well not pack the boom around....:p;)

Re: Cockpit tent

Overkill for a 16 foot daysailer.. sailing it with a bimini would be impractical, windage would be a bigger issue than for a bigger boat.

By all means get a sunshade for the 'lay in the cockpit...

Re: Cockpit tent

We have one of these.. it folds into a small bag (smaller than a sleeping bag) and hangs on a halyard.. you'd still need some tie down points, but you could add some padeyes on deck...

Re: Cockpit tent

You could simply take a hardware store tarp and drape it over the boom..lightweight and stows easily.

If you want the 'arched' shape, you can carry some lengths of tubing/plastic pipe and drape...

Re: Should I get an Irwin 38, Dufuor Gibsea 37, or Cat 36?

Of that list and given that the Gibsea has a furling main I'm leaning towards the C 36. Hard to beat that layout, esp the galley, IIRC a '96 is a mark II. That makes the aft berth darker/more closed...

"Fair condition" is what the surveyor says about your lovingly maintained, upgraded, cared-for boat despite all the love and money you've bestowed upon her.... :rolleyes:

Agree that one needn't spend as much as that, but we often see first timers spending closer to or over $100K... in that context this doesn't look so bad.

Re: Islander 32

The I 32 is a pretty nice boat..

Looks like a lot of good gear, but all of it subject to confirmation, of course. I'd remove the outboard for aesthetic and trim reasons.

What are they asking?...
