Re: Marina Electrical Problems

If the marina has had multiple box fires I would be calling the fire marshal pronto. The marina is too cheap to do anything about the issue. Dumbest thing to do is nothing

Re: Portable Generator

No indication as to the size of the charger. I can just barely run 2 40 amp chargers at full load. The honda is NOT 2000 watts, it is about 1400 if you get a good one.

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

Your concern over being a woman should be much less than your concern over singlehanding. Do your research in that area. Not impossible at all but it is tricky when you have no deck hand to help drop...

Re: mooring / dockspace in Annapolis

We want to be within an easy bike ride of the show.
Renting a car plus gas plus parking is a no go.

Re: Day Docking / Mooring in Annapolis

Short term pick up can be done down ego alley assuming there is room. Call harbormaster to verify, they may have other options.

Re: Overnight Anchoring

We run a cg approved led at the mast top. We also place good solar garden lights at bow, stern and both sides.
Bow light is especially good.
Long days and short nights mean the lights are still on...

Re: Kiwigrip - first experience...

With high humidity, I got no sharp peaks, especially when working under a tarp. When painting in the sun or in lower humidity it was easy to get the sharp peaks.

Working out of the sun made a big...

In the several years I've carried 6 diesel and gasoline jerry jugs, I've barely spilled a few drops of fuel. I regularly fill the diesel tank plus the (gasp) Honda 2k genset and the dink fuel tank on...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

3 jerry jugs of fuel is about 75 lbs. On my 32,500 lb boat that makes a BIG difference, eh?

I'd rather have the fuel and not need it than the other way around.

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Very little good? Like being able to refuel and keep going rather than sit out in the ocean waiting and waiting for wind?

We've done a half dozen coastal hops and had no wind most of the time....

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Additional bonus for hitting Port Washington...very close to LIRR into NYC or Laguardia airport. You could leave the boat on a mooring there and fly in and out with relative ease.

One thing I have to disagree with. I have sent 2 or 3 e-mails asking questions and it took about a week for a response. I asked about tinting and did not hear anything about Benj Moore paint.

Re: Kiwigrip - first experience...

I am using a trowel. And the loopy goopy roller.

Last week the foredeck was wet 12 hours later. Today's work was dry in 1 hour.
Same technique. Only difference was humidity.

Best prices for diesel fuel are usually at Utches in Cape May, Sandy Hook, NJ and Point Judith marina inside Point Judith harbor of refuge.
