An addenda to my previous post ..... thanks to Paulo for the thread. An amazing amount of work went into it with some incredible boats and info on them.

Re: Raw water cooling - walk away?

I'm presuming a raw water cooled engine would have a shorter life span than non RWCed but not tragically so. I've owned a number of boats that were RWC and didn't have any major problems.

Re: alpha 3000 autopilot

George, I posted something in your other thread but in short I suspect the fluxgate is shot. The one we had that went loony tunes on us had a gyro type gizmo inside and part of that disintegrated....

Re: Underwater Lights

..... for about a minute or so.

I confess I would like to seem them banned from very existence. The other weekend we anchored in one of our favourite spots, only a couple of other boats, full...

Re: Choosing a wind generator

Prior .... if I'm correct the blue blades are not original equipment. The SilentWind people sell the blue blades with an adaptor to fit onto an Air X. Their claim is that this makes for a quieter Air...

Re: Soft shackle with jib sheets

I have used one and found nothing to criticise. Also known as a Dutch shackle btw.

Re: Pearons 28 passes Beneteau 46

Reality is if you want to dish it out you need to be able to take it when the barbs come back at you. Wilson obviously has a problem with that but hey, thats his problem he has to learn to deal with...

Re: What make is this boat? Any ideas please

Part of me agrees with Van de Stadt but no smoking gun. There is a similarity to the VDS39 which was built by Dehler as the Dehler 39CWS but that's not 12.5m (41') and/or the VDS Caribbean at 40'....

We will never reach agreement on this. For sure the OP's request was very poorly worded but the response was less than diplomatic and very short sighted.
