Question about marine diesels

Brad,
First, let me say that I know VERY little of auto diesels, so what follows is based on my intimate knowledge of my Volvo 2002 (in my boat) and what little I know of my neighbor''s truck.

Shack BBQ Sauce

I made a batch of this up yesterday, and it was fantastic. I got it off the Latt and Atts board, posted by Dick Price.

The only revision I would make is to use lots of small bottles of ketchup, so...

What should I budget for annual maintenance costs?

Well, um.

As I was telling my wife the other day when I wanted to replace my keel bolts "I think I''ll yank her out and do it"

On-board waste treatment

Scott,
Hmm, didn''t know about Vacuflush. So I did a quick GOOGLE search and went to their web page. The first image that comes to the screen is a bucket.

I laugh. Been there, done that.

Bottom paint WAS in my 10%, I said most, not all, of the 10% was overhaul related. In fact, I had the boat hauled, stripped, ten blisters repaired, two barrier coats put on, a couple gelcoat deck...

Donald Crowhurst came up with an interesting anti-turtle device that involved quickly deploying floatation bags fixed to the top of the map and a sensor device below that would (in theory) inflate...

Electric cooking

Another thing I like about Propane is that I have a line that I run to my Magma Grill. I know ''purists'' like charcoal, but there''s something to be said for speed.

After 7 hours of...

Electric cooking

It really wouldn''t be practical at all unless you ran a genset while you ran the stove.

When you''re on the hook the game you play is to watch every amp to KEEP from running the genset as much...

Helpful books

One of my favorites is Lin Pardey''s The Care and Feeding of a Sailing Crew. It covers not only 50 days worth of meals, recipes and provisioning (from Japan to Canada) but lots of other helpful...

Best Mower

And don''t forget resell value! Your standard single-piston four stroke blade push mower costs about $200 new, but five years later you''d be lucky if you can get $20 for it at a garage sale (90%...

Snacks

Snacking, either for day sails or cruising is part of our routine. Popcorn at night, trail mix, grapes and strawberries (in season) during the day. Pretzels are always around.

What does everyone...

Best Mower

There really isn''t a "best" mower, as people have many different needs. By and large, however, most people think the mower they bought is the best, and the rest of the world are idiots for buying...

which type dinghy is the better

I''ve got a Walker Bay 10, and it makes a fine Dingy for light-weather use. I power it with a 2.5 outboard and it moves along just fine. It tows great.

Reasons to buy the Walker Bay:

1) I''ve...

Got an old Autohelm 3000 remote?

The new remotes will work with the old units? I sent a question to the Autohelm folks, but haven''t heard back.

If the new remotes work, that would be great, I can go that route.

Got an old Autohelm 3000 remote?

Anyone got a remote to an Autohelm 3000 autopilot laying around in the garage, gathering dust, that they''d like to sell?

I''m looking for the optional hand-held unit.

Thanks,

Don

What should I budget for annual maintenance costs?

Last year I hit 10% right on the money. But since most of it was overhaul related, this year has been less painful.

Let me dive in and simply ask folks about provisioning for their cruising. We generally are out a week (7-9 days) once a month. While we may go ashore, seldom do we re-provision. Fresh meat is...

Need infor on anchor/mooring GA/SC Coast

They''re FREE? Man, I like this place even more. I''ll need some help loading them into my van, though.

Now all the lounge needs is a free bar and I may never leave.

Size Does Matter

It''s not the size of the boat, it''s the size of the wallet that bought the boat.
