Re: Purchasing Soon (hopefully)!

Ok, since my last post. I've closed the deal on the boat so I officially own S/V Sea Dog. Just got back (to NJ) from Jacksonville where I spent a long weekend getting to know the boat. Sailed...

Re: Purchasing Soon (hopefully)!

Haha, Yes. Sea Dog, is much better than the alternative. I'm actually quite fond of the name.

According to the current owner it was re powered about 10 years ago and has 500 hours on...

Re: Purchasing Soon (hopefully)!

Yes, the solenoid. At least that is what I was told. Sorry, coil was the incorrect part.

Re: Purchasing Soon (hopefully)!

Thanks for all the advice everyone. My survey was postponed due to engine issues.. (the ignition coil caught fire during the starting of the motor). Repairs have been done and the survey should...

FarCry, I'll certainly let the surveyor know about the weakness in the cabin top/compression post. How is you're old BC31 doing? I had actually talked to you briefly about it when you had it up for...

Re: Purchasing Soon (hopefully)!

Minnewaska,

Thanks for the heads up. I'll certainly look into what they mean by that. The ad says that there are only 500 hours on the motor, so it would be good to know what they had done to...

Re: What does the Centerboard Do...?

Irunburd is totally right. The centerboard doesn't do so much to keep the boat upright as it does to keep you sailing the direction intended. The board itself probably doesn't weigh all that much...

Re: Sailing with a dog

Tim makes some good points. I'd also like to add that since it is a terrier (and may be a high energy dog) you might want to think about getting him good and tired the first couple times you bring...

Re: Bombay Clipper 31 for East Coast & Bahamas?

Well that's good. It is good to be focused especially when it can lead to a sale. Yea that would be pretty terrible if you had jinxed the first voyage with your new motor, even if you didn't have...

Re: Adding AC outlets to my boat?

You just need to get an inverter to change the voltage from 12v to whatever voltage the phone charger you have takes (they make chargers that work off of different voltages). So if you want to use a...

Re: Bombay Clipper 31 for East Coast & Bahamas?

Thanks Wade I appreciate the insight.

What do you have powering her? I've read that the original 15hp motor was a little underpowered.

Do you have the deep draft or shoal draft model? I...

Re: How NOT to drive a power boat

Re: Last Night at the Harvard Club

Wow, sounds like the delivery crew really did a number on her. But at least she is in one piece and you are getting situated aboard. Good luck and I hope your new home comes together nicely!
