Re: sous vide cooking

It just amazes me how much misinformation is spouted in this thread!

Re: Mooring pendants

True but how often will you go out if each trip to the boat together with setting up the dinghy and later stowing it will cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 - 45 minutes each way ?

Re: Mooring pendants

Looking pretty nice! Hope it holds up in a blow.

Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

Guys, you are being combative here. The facts are simple - it was mentioned that the diving depth was to be 2 to 3 meters max. It is irrelavant how long the hose is because diving depth was...

Re: Hot water problem

Although hot water can be made by pushing the coolant through the heat exchanger in the hot water tank, this is by no means the only method. In my boat the engine coolant circulates through a heat...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

A couple of things to consider:
It is rare in the PNW to find a "good" internet connection via wifi. I have no clue what it's like in the east. That might mean you do your work in a STarbucks or...

Re: Fuel leak

Re: Masthead spinnaker bail, could this work?

It will not hold up! I would build an aluminum assembly that spreads the load between the current attachment point and the flat top of the masthead.
