Re: CATAMARAN DESIGN and BRIDEDECK CLEARANCE

I don't know how high my bridge is, and to be honest, it really doesn't matter.

I may stand corrected here, but I'd bet that there is no such thing as a cat which doesn't suffer some slamming, if...

Re: New zealand debate rages re ac rules and nz not entering

Re: What is the best Microwave oven for boat?

Don't understand the fear of using a microwave onboard? My 800 watt consumes 120 watts from the battery when I use it for 15 minutes and it's running off a 3000 watt pure sine wave inverter. I also...
