Re: I (finally) bought a Boat

Fun times! We made the mistake of concentrating too much on setup and fixing, rather than enjoying. It can be a bit disheartening if you never get the fun part!

Re: In expensive Navigation Software

I'm also interested in which software is the best to go with. Does it have anything to do with your OS?

Re: Antifouling Paint for the Great Lakes

I just did this (saltwater, though). Not fun, but an interesting learning experience!

Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start

Unfortunately, we're anchored. But a guy who's been giving us informal lessons is going to take a look on Monday. I'll let you know what the verdict is, just in case anyone else has a similar issue....

Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

I guess I wasn't clear. There is a toilet, but it just ejects into the water directly due to the lack of holding tank. But thanks for the feedback.

Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start

Thanks, everyone. It's a pull starter, and we hear a click in the engine when we pull it. I know some of you said that's not possible, but that's what it sounds like. No turning over, as I said. I'll...

Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start

All of those things were done properly. I'm not sure how old the gas is, since it came from the previous owner. Could be an issue. If that's it, is it normal not to get anything other than a click...

Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

This is all great information and debate. One thing that no one has touched on is the fact that the boat currently has no holding tank. So I was wondering about installing that vs. a composting head....

Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start

Hi all,
I'm extremely new to sailing and have never had much experience with mechanical/electrical things of any kind, including automotive. So I'm hoping I'm just doing something wrong and it will...

Good to know, Mike. What do you do to dispose of the waste?

Re: Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

I was sort of leaning that way after reading the article. I feel that the lower maintenance and fewer parts would be a real bonus for a composting toilet.

(Also, thanks for the search tips!)

Composting Toilets vs. Holding Tank

I'm sure this has been discussed to death, but I'm new to boating and couldn't find a thread on this topic.

We recently bought a 1976 Catalina 27 with no holding tank. We'd like to live on board,...

Re: Wind & Solar

I would also be happy to learn about this! While I don't yet have a boat, or even know how to sail, that is my ultimate goal, so I'm trying to learn as much as possible about self-sufficiency.

Re: To Start It Off

The song "Sea of Possibilities" by Jason Hayward is great as a sailing song, although it wasn't originally intended for that purpose. In fact, he's looking for footage of sailing to make a music...
