Re: Anchoring without chain

No chain is a very bad idea and about the only thing you can count on is the anchor pulling loose. The more the better and it should be sized for the boat and the windlass if you have one. Cable is...

Re: Cetol Marine Finish Woes

We've been using Cetol for many years and we have lots and lots of teak. We mostly use foam brushes but also use the disposable type. The problem with the disposable type is the bristles falling out....

Re: WiFi Connectivity On-Board

Re: Beaufort South Carolina no longer a free anchor

There will still be sufficient anchorage space on the Beaufort River, it will just be a bit longer dinghy ride. Having said that, Factory Creek has always been our preferred anchorage for decades. It...

Re: 50A Splitters/ Dual 30A Shore Power

Re: Great Harbor Bahamas
