Re: Spacing & how many mast steps?

Denise- I've never installed steps but had steps on our previous boat. I think you should start at the top - figure out how far down from the top of the mast you want the two steps to be (essential...

Re: What is the most idiotic mistake you have made on a boat?

In no particular order, but equal in stupidity:
"The weather looks bad, but I really need to get there today"...
"I know the entrance to this harbor, I'm sure I can cut this corner"...
"I know...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

T37- I was thinking the same thing. 80 pages when all that was needed was a one word answer.... YES (flying a pirate flag is seriously lame).

Re: Should Medsailor proactively rebuild his transmission?

Those velvet drives (usually) last forever, even in a commercial fishing boat. Even my old Volvo trans went 5000 hrs before needing a new clutch. If it was working OK I would leave it alone. Worst...

Re: Review of 1962 chinook 34

I love those old Chinooks, great lines and from the little I know they were built like tanks. Only sailed one once (on the Columbia), as I recall it went along nicely on a tack in 10-15 knots of...

Re: Petzel ASAP

Two ascenders, GriGri and a dedicated climbing rope works well for me.

Re: Obstacle Detection With Infrared Imaging -- A Study

These are becoming pretty popular here in the PNW on power/work boats. The ability to "see" other boats, logs, etc at night or in the fog is nothing short of amazing. The one that I'm personally...

Re: Rolly Tasker Sails, Florida

Lots of threads on this subject.
I've bought two sails from them, rf staysail and a rf genoa, both are excellent (offshore). A lot of people are scared off by the low prices and feel that having...

Re: Water vs Gas

In your boat with the size tanks people have mentioned I think you will either be cluttering the deck with fuel jugs or water anyway (both most likely) and you already have the water tank. Leave it...

Re: Automotive Heater

One of the best upgrades you can do to your boat. You always want to have a ball valve fitted to each hose at the engine so you can shut them off if needed. We use ours year round here in the PNW,...

Re: What would cause this?

The cracks were ground out and it was wet inside so either some kind of damage caused the cracks and allowed water to enter, or water intrusion around the shaft log caused expansion and resulted in...

Re: What would cause this?

Rich- I think you're right, the repeated hammering over time probably accounts for the key shearing. Glad to hear that MaxProp has come up with a better solution.
Greg- the prop was pulled and...

Re: What would cause this?

Thanks for all the ideas, I'll try to answer the questions in order.
Fast- there is a strut with a cutlass bearing that was in good shape. There was no vibration, very smooth and the shaft was...

What would cause this?

Kind of a long story so I'll try to be brief. I delivered my brother's 34' Northsea pilothouse from the San Juan Islands to Lake Washington (Seattle) last month. Motored all the way (no wind),...

Re: Cockpit Draining - Below waterline?

Our cockpit scuppers exit below waterline and the hoses cross over to the opposite side so that when heeled over the scupper isn't below waterline. I've done the measurements to try and run them out...

Re: Fuel tank repair

Aluminum is tough to get stuff to stick to it, I would be surprised if your patch holds for long. That said, my sister in law patched a hole in the bottom of an aluminum skiff with bubble gum and it...

Re: Winterizing - Do you run your engine after the oil change?

It's not necessary to run the engine to get a coating of oil on everything, it's already coated (you ran the engine to warm up the oil prior to changing it, right?). I run it to make sure the oil...

Our Wallas forced air furnace does a great job in our 40' pilothouse. Just spent three days in sub freezing temps and it was toasty warm. You won't regret going the diesel forced air route if you...
