Re: Any Solo Sailors?

Stay on the boat, you won't get a second chance.
Wear your PFD and/or tether.
keep a floating VHF in your pocket (mine has DSC/GPS).
Allow for much more time to finish tasks, even ones that might...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

Well, I'm the proud owner of a Merc RIB and several hundred dollars worth of other assorted crap.

Re: Are NADA Values accurate ?

They seem to be accurate in one respect that may be very important, or absolutely useless.
The loan value most banks use will depend on NADA. So, if you are financing a boat then NADA has value....

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I lived half my life in S. FL. I've travelled all over the world, been to places that a mozzie bite just might kill you or make you very sick. In the future I will be in such places. I have my own...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

At the store, or online. The online prices are lower right now. Yesterday you had to put them in your cart to get the cheapest price (I think).

I'm headed over there. At previous Defender...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

If it works for you, great, keep doing what you are doing. A golfing buddy gave me a small bottle to carry in my bag. I believe it also had sunscreen in it. I used it, and it worked. I didn't get...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I hate to be a naysayer, but Consumer Reports in 1993, again in 2003 and The New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 all dispute Avon's and other's claims of "best bug repellent on the market". Avon...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

I'll be there Thursday, pissing away some retirement money.

Re: Hunter 27 - A Little Look Please?

Again, it's a guess without seeing the boat, but here is a couple of quick thoughts.

Small outboards are set up with all the controls (throttle, fwd, neut, rev, stop) on the tiller. Controlling...

Re: Hunter 27 - A Little Look Please?

Yup, prop-less shaft and an outboard.... If you can live with an outboard, that's not a deal breaker. In fact, some might prefer an outboard.

Unfortunately, you have some combination of the...

Re: Yanmar 3GM 30 Cooling Water Mystery

I'm going with the exhaust elbow. Second guess is heat exchanger needs a good enema.

If you are not up to removing cleaning/replacing the exhaust elbow just yet, try a good vinegar soak on the...

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Way over my head as well. However, I was on Jacknife, as well as a new 30 one design at a C&C gathering in Newport last September.

They are pricey, but seem very well built and from some of the...

Well, if you wrap a lobster pot line around your prop at night I'll be they come in mighty handy.

Re: Anyone keep an old tire aboard for tow-assist/fender/sea-anchor duty?

Times gone by when folks got caught out in a storm, they tied anything they could to a line and through it over in an attempt keep them from being dead.

They lived, so, obviously whatever they did...

Re: Charter/rental woes...and question

Well, either way, I'm guessing if you signed it you would be on the hook. If there was damage, I'm sure the insurance company would have loved to see that contract.

They may have paid the owners...

Re: backing into a slip with single screw

The problem with bow thrusters is the noise. I think they make them loud as a selling point. Like that noise they put on electric vehicles. Since when is an electric motor louder than a diesel?
