Re: How loud is a single cylinder Yanmar supposed to be?

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

Oh boy, oh boy, was that interesting. Long story short I won't let my dad get that boat even if it was a gift. The whole thing was a mildew trap, the entire starboard deck was soft, and when i say...

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

So lets talk some numbers on repairs now...

Re: 72 Morgan 35... Looking at it on Friday

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I will get that book and try to learn some things ;)

Re: Australia One's sinking "What happened here"?

Wow, that was incredible. It is a good thing the crew at the bow jumped off when they did. Another couple seconds and they easily could have gotten tangled up in a sheet and pulled to the bottom. ...

Re: Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

Re: Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

I went down to the boat today and sure enough it had dragged the anchor a few feet and she was almost hitting the dock again. I rearranged the mooring lines and positioned the boat so the bow is...

Re: Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

Yeah I know… How sweet would this be if they actually work? I will make up a pair and bring them down to the boat on a day with some wave action and see what happens.

Re: Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

Thanks again for the responses…

Re: Galvanized Pipe as Mooring Pylon

Thanks for the replies everyone. The problem with the dock is that it is elevated too high, and the deck boards overhang the joists by 6". This means when the wind shifts and pushes the boat into...
