Re: Boat sank at the dock

Re: Silly Anchoring Question

Medsailor, looking at your diagram in post 65 is exactly the way I had originally set my line from the waterline in my Tayanna. I figured that the low attachment point would allow the boat to be...

Re: Diesel engine strange problem


Does that stewart-warner pump self prime? And if so will it prime with let's say a 2 ft elevation? Thanks for posting.

Re: Ace Hardware Antifreeze deal

Re: Why do people still use depth sounders?
