Re: Any way to check keel bolts?

Well, I have a lot of work to do already and will be on the hard for a bit... I'm just not too awfully keen to open up yet another can of worms. But... then again... I will already be out of the...

Re: Any way to check keel bolts?

Shoot. Of COURSE there is no easy way out. ;) I guess it's a question of how secure do I feel in just leaving them be vs. tackling a major PITA project? I would definitely prefer not to have to drop...

Any way to check keel bolts?

i have a '69 Columbia 28 and I am a little concerned about the keel bolts. When I hauled out last April there was no separation of the keel from the hull or signs of it, but the tops of the bolts in...

Re: Universal to Kubota Parts list?

Your 5411 is a Kubota z500 block. It was used in their B5100D and B5100E tractors. Still haven't gotten around to rebuilding mine, but last February I received a quote from Sid at Kumar Bros...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Unfortunately my bilge isn't huge... Good for maybe a case? I have space at the forward end of the v-berth for a lot of it. I expect I will be poking random bottles in many places and, perhaps, go...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Not if you have some means of solar charging. Sounds like you can get a pretty minimal set-up that would suit your needs. Small solar panel, small inverter and/or a solar battery charger.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Guess I'm in the "can't take it with you" crowd. Had a house years ago and the maintenance was far more time consuming between the yard and house. Had the well-paying desk job too. Neither of which...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I think that's probably one of the main differences here... I never took the numbers barefoot listed in the initial post as gospel. Just simply as what he was going on for his intended time.

And here we go again... back to the same old, tired issues people have had with this thread since January. To re-cap: nobody ever said once we untie the lines, that's it. If you can't voyage on...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

In the course of this thread we have pretty well fleshed out the idea that we all start from different places and have different means. The $500/mo has turned out to be a number to focus the...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

A depth sounder is a tool like any other... if you use it for what it's intended for and not as a crutch it enhances safety and navigation. Unless one has a fancy new forward-looking sonar set-up I'm...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I'll hazard a guess that it has to do with a reliance on technology. Both potential inaccuracy and watching the display and not looking at where you're going. Plus, one more electronic gadget to go...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Yeah, I hear what you are saying about full standing headroom and galley down one side with built-in dinette opposite. The former is the biggest reason I was considering looking for a different boat,...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Mine is a '69 Columbia 28. I can't say there has been much sailing done on it in the year that I have owned it. [emoji22] Definitely not my dream boat, but I had wanted a boat for over 8 years but...

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

Thanks to you both. Up until quite recently I had been getting kind of anxious about getting out of here, and thinking that meant sort of a drive-by of places North but that South is where I want to...
