Re: Engine sound insulation

Good sound insulation does not have to be continuous to make a difference, but it is best if it is. Often just small patches on any flat panel, especially metal or fiberglass can be quite effective...

Re: Newbie buying a dirt cheap liveaboard...

Glad it is working out for you. It would be limiting for many. I have been on a few sub 30 foot boats I would be OK living on myself but need room for a few guests for week or more at a time. So I...

Re: Aft head boats

Offshore 33 has a aft head as well. I really like the Cat Ketch rig version. Fun and easy to sail.

Re: Never been in a slip

Re: Liveaborders that never leave the slip? I don't get it. Help!

Re: Really, $1000.00 for foulies?

Not really what I want to hear, as I have a set on the way to me now. But of course I did not pay anything I got it from a Cruising World give away, I suppose I owe it to them to get a subscription...

Re: What is the life span of a chart plotter???

Google, glasses? No way, I have had eye implants. No glass to fall off my face, or to start a bar fights. Way more high tech. I am a bit worried about how long the new android eyes will last though!

Re: Boat Loan

Well while boats generally depreciate, many do not nearly as much as some think or say. A 30ish foot 1970's to 80's in good shape likely sells for very close to what it cost to buy new. Go to a high...

Re: Boat Loan

I think it really depends on the $ of the loan, and how long they think the asset will hold its value. Are you dealing with a boat broker? They likely know good sources of loans, as it is to there...
