Martha''''s vineyard

One other IMPORTANT thing to keep in mind - Woods Hole. If you plan to transit thru this awful place pay attention to the direction of the current as it can hit 6 knots plus. And if you plan to go...

Outboard lifting is killing me!

Mast Climber?

The top climber works best. Do you have a bosuns chair? If so save some bucks and get your own ascenders from any good outdoor store that sells to climbers. You''ll save hundreds.

Good Luck

Paddle wheel transducer

I''ve had too many problems with SH stuff. I could never get my speed to calibrate. I put the plug in the through hull and have not used it for three years. Instead, I use my gps.
