Re: Boomkicker and winter storage

Why do you need a crane to remove your boom? Topping lift and a halyard should do it.

Re: Boomkicker and winter storage

I would take the boom and vang off and store them down below. Michigan is a lot different from Annapolis. And ice is not your friend!

Re: Agm expense

If cruising I would stay away from AGMs unless you can fully charge them often. Lots of info on this on various forums. Mine only lasted two seasons as I was unable to fully charge them (using...

Re: winter charging

I leave the batteries in all winter. Just charge them up before haulout. No need to remove them from the boat. Nobody in our club takes them home. One new guy did once and dropped one coming down...

Re: Need some information about Volvo Penta 24HP

These were later engines, starting about 1990. Perkins/Kubota.

Re: Need some information about Volvo Penta 24HP

Parts are expensive and sometimes hard to find but I'd be more concerned as to which model you have. If it's one of the 2000 series (1983 to about 1988) I'd pass on the boat. 2001, 2002, 2003,...

Re: In-mast furler advice

I always use the winch for both furling and un-furling.

Re: Setting mast and rigging by ourselves

I'm surprised that Riverview is now more than Hop-o-nose. It used to be the other way around. I see that they have a new hydraulic crane at Riverview. Mike, the owner was always very helpful to...

Re: Setting mast and rigging by ourselves

I would not do this at Castleton. The few bucks you save at the DIY crane is just not worth it. I was helping a fellow cruiser do his mast there once when we got badly waked (happens often here)...

Re: In-mast furler advice

I have a B393 with in-mast furling (this is the type boat the OP is asking about). AFAIK there is no winch like fitting at the base of the mast to manually crank the sail in.

Re: In-mast furler advice

When unfurling ease vang, ease mainsheet, grind the outhaul while keeping tension on the furling line. Let the sail come out slowly as you grind.

When furling ease the vang, ease the mainsheet,...

Re: in mast furling issue

When all the above advice fails get in your bosuns chair and go up to where it's jammed. Pull and tug until your fingers are bloody, use a plastic spatula to help get the sail out. You will have to...

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

I thought I said that.
Although no tonnage survey is required for a boat this size in Canada the certificate of registry does show tonnage. There's a mathematical formula.

Re: Outboard oil mix specs

Use at least 50:1 TC3. Yamaha says 100:1 only because of EPA. In the same engine bought in the Bahamas (when they were still available in the US) they recommend 50:1 vs 100:1 in the States.

Re: Navigating the Reefs of Andros

Definitely do not rely on Navionics in the Bahamas. I pointed out a whole lot of errors to them but they will not tell me whether they have corrected them. I have two of their chips of the Bahamas....

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

I have the wing keel "patented Hydrokeel" as CS puts it. She doesn't point the best. I don't race so it's not a significant factor for me. You need the deep keel for that. Also with the wing keel...

Re: CS36 Merlin Bimini/Dodger Configuration

Mine (88 model #6236) is the same. That's why I've never put a bimini on it. I have a dodger extension which can only be used when not using the mainsail.

It all depends on where your traveller is. The Merlin was built with three different mainsheet traveller configurations. Early models had the traveller just forward of the pedestal, later models on...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

I agree the problem is from old wiring. But rather than change out the wiring harness it's much easier to install a relay. The relay does not mask the problem it fixes it without having to get a...

Re: Voltage Drop Problem: battery, wiring or both

It's for the engine control panel wiring. Installing a relay between the panel wiring and the solenoid will boost the voltage and it'll start every time you push the button. Here's the instructions...
