Re: Hurricane Sandy

Hope all is well with you and Dianne. And NiftyNickers.

Re: Wind generator help request

I looked into diverting excess power into a water heater - it's a good idea.

But that would mean I'd have to add a water heater. One with a purpose-built 12v heater element as the 120v heater...

Re: PSC 37 How many have done away with staysail?

One of our few regrets on the boat is that we didn't put a furler on the staysail. We use it often, and when the wind pipes up we use it almost exclusively if beating to weather. The only issue is...

Re: PSC34 power generation/storage solution?

If you plan to have a deep cycle spare, you might want to read Nigel Calder on batteries - he contends it's better to combine all of your batteries (except the starter) into one house bank. It's...

Multiple Anchors

We currently carry a 35lb Delta and a 34lb Manson Ray on our bow rollers. We like the Ray for some conditions but the Delta does drag in heavy winds. Hence, we're thinking about buying a Manson...

Re: PSC34 power generation/storage solution?

We lived on a 34 for a few years and found you can reduce power needs with a smaller fridge (we use a SeaFrost BD), lots of small fans, and LED's inside and out. But you'll still need a fair bit of...
