Hey,

As mentioned, your request is very general. I would suggest picking a PHRF number to narrow it down a little.

Catalina considered the Catalina 36 to be racer / cruiser (with a PHRF of over...

Re: Yanmar GM30 Hard to start

Hey,

Don't feel bad. It's the nature of diesels that they just don't like cold weather. Unlike a gasoline engine, with a spark to ignite the fuel - air mixture, a diesel relies on the heat from...

Short answer: No, NADA is not accurate.

Re: what to check for before boat delivery?

Hey,

You should consider hiring a delivery captain, at least for the first day. Back in 2006 I needed to move my new-to-me O'day 35 from Newport RI to Mt. Sinai, NY, in December. I had a few years...

Re: different chart configurations on GPS's

Re: Should you expect to haul out a boat that is in the water when shopping?

Hey,

Re: Should you expect to haul out a boat that is in the water when shopping?

Hey,

I don't believe a surveyor would do ANYTHING with an inoperative motor other than record the serial number and make / model. It is the owner or broker responsibility to make the engine run,...

Re: VHF DSC Handheld with AIS?

Hey,

I don't think you are correct.

I have an AIS receiver on my boat. There is a large boat with an AIS transponder that is DOCKED a short distance from my boat. For some reason, he runs his...

Re: NMEA 2000 fuel sensor

Hey,

I don't. My boat has a regular fuel gauge that works fine. Considering I use about 30 gallons a year I don't need a very high tech gauge!

Re: Raymarine EV-100

Re: behavior on other's boats
