Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

No, you read that right, they don't have a fuse in their wiring diagram. Morons.

The installation manual of the controller that you have ordered will tell you. It will also tell you what minimum...

Re: Sleeping on Deck

I had no idea how weird I am, obviously. Stubborn, too, and probably other non-desirable things.

Yes, I sleep on deck (in the cockpit) any chance I get, even though I have 6 perfectly good berths...

Re: Computer Upgrade

Yes, pretty much. I have gone through more than my share of Linuxes (from the time when Slackware was a major improvement over the state of the art which was called SLS and required more than 50...

Re: Computer Upgrade

That would have been Staroffice.

I can do one better: I used Staroffice even before Sun bought it :nerd

Re: Computer Upgrade

This would be OpenOffice/LibreOffice. There are others but this is the canonical choice for everything Microsoft Office does.

Re: Interesting info from AC today, Signal K

I actually think it is a great name.

This is not about cereals but about maritime communication. The flag 'K' stands for "I wish to communicate with you."

I think it's brilliant!

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

Stearns. About 10 years old, maybe 12. Have been on the boat all of these years, summer and winter.

So, I certainly got my money's worth out of them, no complaint there.

Exclamation This PFD could have killed me!

Starting the new season, I thought it would be a good idea to test the inflatable PFDs. So, I took them home and inflated them through the oral inflator.

Big 'Oh shite' moment: One of them, the...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

OK, update: The problem persists. I have documented it and the radio is currently at Standard Horizon/Yaesu. They will replace it but I am afraid that will not solve the problem. I will start a new...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I don't; as I said, I bought the Vespermarine XB8000 which seems to be working great.

One argument over the AIT2000 is that the XB8000 has built-in wifi. I did not consider this a big deal until I...

Thumbs up Victory at last! (I think)

In case anyone is still reading this:

Took out the boat last weekend and things are definitely looking up.

First, I don't know why the VSWR was still showing as 2 last week. Now I am getting...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Yes, indeed, your suggestion of the GX2000 made a huge difference.

I think I am all set and ready to pull the plug (actually, already pulled a small part of it already today). Here is what I am...

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

There is nothing special about gas engines in the sense that the vast majority of boats have them.

Of course you are right that the operator has to be competent in its usage. It needs to be...

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

"Risk reduction" sound rational but is not. Everything is a compromise. For instance: Let us start from the assumption that diesel has a lower risk than gas. But surely the risk is not zero. For...

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

I had the same attitude when we looked for boats. Then I learned about the Atomic 4. This is about the most reliable auxiliary sailboat motor in history. Yes, they may need repair and service but...

Re: Fraud on the hook

That is correct. But isn't overstaying a visum exactly the kind of stuff that ICE is supposed to act upon?

I would see the situation differently. If those two were not French and white but...
