Re: I called Mercury Marine

Hey,

I believe you can find race gas at Lime Rock Park in Lakeview or at Thompson Ct. In a previous life I used to use a fair amount of race gas a year.

Re: How should True Wind be determined?

Hey,

Check your manual. My Garmin system can use GPS speed or paddlewheel speed to determine true wind. I have to tell it which one.

Re: Engine running cool

Hey,

I believe the 180 stat is kubota part number 15321-73010. It should be cheap, like $15 or so. My o'day had the Universal M25 and I used to buy parts from the local kubota dealer at WAY less...

Re: USCG Doc Renewal Fee

When I bought my current boat it had been documented. I filled out the form, payed the money, and switched the documentation to me. Why does it need to be renewed ever year? What changes from year to...

Re: Collision course procedure?

Hey,

When I'm in that situation, I make a course change when the other vessel is around 500 yards away.

This assumes:
-That I am the stand on vessel

Re: Are you a dock person or a mooring person?

Yeah there are pros and cons of both.

As mentioned, if you will be on a mooring you need a way of getting to / from the boat. My harbor has a place that offers a launch service. That's pretty...

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Agreed.

On the O'day, the crates sat on a shelf above and outboard of the through hull. This keeps the gear clear and away from the seacock. However, the distance from the lazarette opening down...

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Because to reach the engine raw water seacock on my O'day required me to remove 2 crates of gear, climb down into a small lazarette, reach down as far as I could and then turn the handle.

Re: Boomkicker and winter storage

Hey,

As mentioned, best is mast down. If you can't do that then next best is boom off. You should be able to do that without too much problem. If you can't take the boom off then at least use the...

Re: Question Regarding Price Ranges and the Value of a Cash Offer

Hey,

If a boat is priced so low (relative to other comparable boats) that it will generate multiple, immediate offers, then a 'cash' offer is attractive because the deal can be done right away....

Re: Question: Do you close your seacocks when leaving the boat?

Hey,

The engine intake line is in a real awkward position, so I leave it open. The rest are easier to reach / or not used often, so I leave them closed. If it were easier to reach the engine line,...

Re: Can I reef with this furler

Hey,

I can't read the name on the drum but it looks like an old Hood unit. Those did not reef and Hood sold an upgrade kit to make them single line that did allow reefing.

I would assume you...

Re: Blue Jacket 40

Hey,

The previous owner of my boat bought a Blue Jacket 40 (I guess you're not supposed to call it the BJ40). That's why he sold the C&C. I've corresponded with him a few times and he is happy...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Hello,

IMHO, for your use, an AIS receiver would be a good idea. I don't think you need a transceiver. Whatever you do get, forget about interfacing it to your old garmin unit. First I doubt it...
