Re: Coastal sailing without depth finder?

Yes, but how much draft do you draw? I guess it depends on how large your mug is! :laugher:laugher

Depth finders are important, especially if you are going to Maine, they have a lot of very heavy...

Re: "Closed" threads

Normally threads are left open, but will be closed by moderators if the discussion gets way off track or personal. Not many are closed, but normally only if it gets ugly. I think there were some that...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

If you are also looking at the tartan at Bruce Hill, they are both very nice looking boats. I have emailed them a few times and seemed pretty honest about condtion of a few boats I was kind of...

Re: If you live in Hawaii.....GET YOUR BOAT OUT OF THE WATER ASAP!!

My brother was going to come to the mainland (lives on Maui) but does not want to leave his house. He is high enough that he is not worried about storm surge. I know that a lot of the marinas there...

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

I don't think so and the last time I looked at his blog it seemed to be dormant. Last posts seems to be about some girl he was obsessed with in August/October 2013.

Re: Battery Acid!

I personally think his current action is good enough. He understands that he has likely shortened the life of the battery a great deal. I kind of agree with him that for a $100 (since he has minimal...

Re: Advice For Good Boat To Learn On

Nice looking boat! Just keep in mind, even if you have a big enough truck to pull it, you are not going to be backing that down a ramp and siding it off like a power boat that size. It will have to...

Re: Propane Powered Outboard Engine Experience??

Well it is a four stroke motor so it will still need oil changes. The carb will likely take a bit less, but will still likely need occasional cleaning out. So a 2-stroke does seem to have the...

Re: Is it a crazy thought?

Re: Boat Consultant vs Broker

Yes, there is no need for a blue-water boat for the Caribbean. In fact a good coastal cruiser will get you a lot more boat for your money and likely be easier to sell when you want to get out.

Re: I fell out of my Boat (not mob)

I hope you are OK. That sucks. I really like my ladders (no matter where I am using them) to be longer than necessary, so I can hold on to it when getting on and off. Nothing makes me more nervous...

Re: Hypervent or Equivalent? - seeking condensation solution for under berths

I have seen people use the mesh material that you use on a roof cap under the asphalt shingles. It is cheaper than the price you listed, but not than the price from Defender. The other issue is the...

Re: Stereo woofer placement and size

A tv? why would you want a TV, let alone the "largest" one on a sailboat? Get a USB TV tuner for a laptop if you absolutely need one. At least you can use it for more than one thing. I have not had a...

Re: Best Smartphone for boat?

Re: Electrical 101

I would start the year off with just adding a modest charger. After a season or two you will understand your needs better. Often you get caught up in buying toys for the new baby and much of what you...

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

Some solvents and oils can cause spontaneous combustion. That is why in shops they have the metal red cans with the thick flip top lids. Not sure what kinds, but I know it was drummed into our heads...

I don't have any specific options for you, just some general suggestions. One note too is to actually visit the marina. Many will say no over the phone. Also photos of a well maintained boat to show...

Big thing is daylight readability. Most monitors, including your note will not be readable in direct sunlight. But I can't see the need for anything more than 10 or perhaps 12 inches on a boat. That...

Re: Forgive me Father for I have sinned....
