Re: safe cooking

Ooops! We need an emoticon 'wiping egg from my face' :p

Looking at the indexmundi numbers that I referenced to earlier, there is no question that kerosene consumption is much lower than it used to...

Re: safe cooking

Why are you so defensive? We are discussing availability of cooking fuels, for crying out loud! How aggressive do you get when the Really Important Questions of life are discussed, like "what is the...

Re: safe cooking

We have discussed this several times in this thread (you may want to read it). You are confounded about kerosene burnt through a wick and through a generator. The first stinks, the second doesn't.

Re: Copper sheeting & CopperCoat anti-fouling

You don't have to talk to other paint companies. PS publishes their test procedures, and indeed it involves splashing water over the panels occasionally, to simulate moving the boat. Other than that...

Re: Problem with Spot Satellite Personal Tracker

I for one thank you for pointing this out! Of course it is not difficult to convert into whatever other format ONCE YOU KNOW! I would not have known it without this discussion.

Re: safe cooking

True. "If you have (uncontrolled) ignition of propane on your boat, the resulting fire is the least of your problems" :D

Re: safe cooking

You make it sound as if gas explosions happen so rarely that there is no point paying attention to the problem.

Wasn't there a case just last week where a cruiser was likely killed by a gas...

Re: safe cooking

Interesting.

However, this is about fires, not explosions. I suppose the statistics includes galley fires caused by liquid (and solid) fuels. But if there is a propane leak, the result is not a...

Re: safe cooking

Oh, I can smell burning kerosene just fine. In fact, it gives me a headache.

BUT: That is if it is burned, not vaporized in a properly functioning pressurized cooker. I have a lamp (the type with...

(It was more her boat than his, actually. Anyway.)

No, it did not explode.

And your point is? I don't even know what stove they had on the boat (they have since moved). Let us assume it was...

Re: safe cooking

I would not consider a gas explosion a minor problem.

The boat in the slip next to me (on the Chesapeake Bay) some time ago discovered a mouse on the boat. It happens.

Re: safe cooking

Kerosene stinks if it is not properly vaporized. For instance, if you put it in an oil lamp (with a wick), that will happen. Or if your stove/oven is not properly maintained or operated.

If...

Re: safe cooking

How do you get a leak in ANY line? There are many ways.

In the example discussed, a rat gnawed on it.

Re: Terrible wiring job - where to start?

Oh sure, these screw driver thingies can be handy. I have a set of them (not Sears, some other brand, probably HF) and have used them once or twice. I just did not see the connection with cable...

Re: Terrible wiring job - where to start?

OK, that makes sense: putting clear heat shrink above it.

However, your last link makes a lot less sense to me: what has this problem to do with a Sear screw driver???

Re: Terrible wiring job - where to start?

What is known about the longevity of these labels in a typical boat environment? How long do the labels survive moist/freezing/above 100F conditions? This pertains both to the ink (fade?) and the...

Re: Looking Boat Slip in Mid and upper Chesapeake Bay

Sorry, I have to correct you here. This is definitely not true.

I have my boat in Bowleys marina (I believe that is what you mean; Bowleys Marina | Home (http://www.bowleysmarina.com)). In my slip...

Yes, I thought about that. Would wrapping electrician's tape around the cable ties be a good idea? Might also help with UV degradation. Or would that

Re: How to attach cable to pulpit?

I dunno. The tubing is not marginal, it is 1" SS. But the cable by itself has a diameter of 3/8" (waterproof marine cable) and I would not bet my life (which is what you do on safety equipment) on a...
