Re: keel cooling

Here's a picture of the isotherm thru hull. The center is carries the drain from the galley sink. The perforations allow water flow into the cooling coil area. Two of the perforations are threaded...

Re: Cleaning raw water strainer

If you have a Forespar water strainer, make sure there is a rubber washer between the clear plastic lid and the knob that screws the lid down.

I had a problem recently where it would take a long...

Re: keel cooling

Our Isotherm in-water heat exchanger is a coil inside the bronze thru-hull fitting for our galley sink drain. The coil is completely within the hull fitting. The fitting itself looks much like a...

Re: Two weeks in Block/Narragansett Bay

We've anchored overnight in 20 ft at the south end of the Harbor of Refuge at Pt Judith and had no problems. It is a convenient stop, depending on conditions, between Fishers Island Sound and...

Re: 12V refrig units and power

Your ice box insulation could make a huge difference in the energy required to maintain temperature. Before we added refrigeration, we went to Maine in the company of an older Morgan 34. These...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Actually, the locals usually refer to it as "Dinghy Beach", so as not to play favorites. Besides there are all sorts of other brands there.

Not saying there aren't sharks at Scotch Beach, but...

Re: Bottom Paint Removal - Scraping or Chemical?

In our area it seems the soda blasting process stops several inches from the waterline (so as not to damage the gelcoat on the topsides?) So you will still have to do some manual work where it will...

Re: Bad Rope (Line/Sheet) Advice?

Your old lines were probably larger in diameter than when new. A common mistake is to replace them with new ones of the same diameter as found. You may have gotten some savvy advice from the...

Re: Low Rider

Saberman has the right advice on weight distribution. Your SC 23 has a moderate overhang in the stern and needs to squat to add buoyancy as you add weight aft. Assuming your Honda 9.9 is a 4...

Re: Climbing into boat on a Mooring

You might consider something like this:C-Level Step-Up Rigid Step (http://www.defender.com/product3.jsp?path=-1%7C7504%7C2290202%7C2290203&id=158697)

If a single step works, it would be much...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

You've got it, Azzarac. The architectural blunder was an original flat roof that leaked so badly, they had to construct the gable roof you see in the photo (different color stone) just 2 years...

Re: Add Sta-bil to gas or not?

I was using the blue stuff without realizing it was a "treatment"--not a stabilizer. Then my 3-yr old Honda 9.9, with maybe 20 hours on it, decided not to start. Starting fluid helped until I could...

Re: Raymarine speedo question

I paint my RM paddle wheel (which is made by Airmar) with copper bottom paint using a q-tip and make sure the paddle wheel has clearance on the sides so it spins freely. I've been doing this for 23...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Your 50 gallon tank is perfectly adequate for this trip, without extra jerry jugs, assuming you are starting from Cape May with a full tank. I motored from Cape May all the way to Fishers Island...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Tempest has some good advice, but you'll need to plan on a 3 day transit from Cape May to Vineyard Haven, if conditions allow. Block Island could be a 2-day passage: you wouldn't save much time to...

For those not from New England, this place rocks. I'm with Azzarac: let others have a chance at this.

Re: Mooring Line

Re: question for swing keel sailors

My 35 ft sloop has a weighted swing keel of about 3000#. There is no vestigial keel, so the boat is beachable, if you don't care about your bottom paint. With the keel completely retracted the...

Re: Help me plan my cruise North!

Agree with the advice about backing off a little. Cape May to MV is an overreach IMHO. You need to allow for bad weather and losing a few travel days. Hopefully you can be in an interesting harbor...
