Re: W-M Tahiti Binos -- Repairable?

West Marine should replace it for free if you ask. Tahiti are guaranteed for life.

Re: voltage regulator on a yanmar 3gm35F

I would recommend connecting all your charging to your house bank, then connecting your starter with an ACR. Plenty of threads here on this topic if you search.



I have a 3HM35F, but my stock...

Re: voltage regulator on a yanmar 3gm35F

Why don't you switch your battery switch while the engine is running? I switch mine all the time and never had a problem with it. It should only be a problem if your switch disconnects the batteries...

Re: List of Fast, Offshore-Capable Cruising Boats?

Saga 35 would be high on my list, but even if you can find one, would probably be above your price range. Other candidates: J34c, Beneteau First 35, Beneteau First 34.7, and Elite 364.

I would love that thread. I just fly my spinaker to avoid motoring. If the wind is over 8 apparent, I usually drop it and switch to full sail. Never occurred to me to worry about any of it. Would...

Re: Running one sail

I also use just the genoa when docking under sail on the Catalina 27. Works great since you can roll in or out to accelerate and decelerate.

To clarify my above, when sailing in heavy winds with...

Re: Best book to have for coastal sailing.

Active Captain is for sure the #1 source. Far better than any book. I have Waterway Guide and Skipper Bob's too. Far prefer Skipper Bob's.

Re: Running one sail

For sure depends on the boat. I used to sail my Catalina 27 in high winds with 1 reef in the main (only had 1) and just a handkerchief of jib out. Sailed great. I saw a bunch of other boats sail with...

Re: Ideas for a small, simple, offshore, family cruiser.......

Cal 40 might work. They have 2 quarter berths and are in your price range. A bit bigger than you were thinking, but great boats overall. Small water tanks is the main drawback for cruising.

Re: Lookin' for a new HANDHELD VHF

I picked up a Standard Horizon HX280S for $75. Can't beat the price and it has been a great radio. Does not float, but it is submersible. They are a little more now ($90), but still a fantastic deal....

Re: Where do the costs of a bigger boat come from?

Sails are a good example. I am going to compare C&C 30 to C&C 37, since that is more apples-to-apples.

C&C 30 (per sailboat data) has a ~200 sq ft main and ~250 sq ft genoa.
C&C 37 has a ~275 sq...

We have a 34, so it may be different, but ours uses 5/16 packing. Just over a foot. I use the Gore GFO packing, but any will work.

Yanmar dealers can only distribute within a specific geographic area. This insures high prices and crappy service. Due to this stupid policy, the answer to your question depends on where you are...
