Re: Volvo Engine mounts

I too have had good luck with Marine Parts Express. I often use their online schematics to find part numbers, as well as to see how internals are assembled. Engine mounts, however, can have several...

Re: Shower Sump

Not a fan of a float switch with a shower sump, they fill with all sort of gunk. I suspect its part of your problem. Not a fan of electronic timing switches either. I would rather have a...

Re: Which SAT phones are good/best?

Consider a DeLorme InReach, unless you want to make a phone call.

Re: Coast Guard Documentation process times.

The answer here is to extend renewals to 10 years and relieve the burden on available resources. Aircraft used to be lifetime registration with the FAA, but they got onto the "create more fictional...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Good examples of different strokes for different folks. With all due respect, I nod off on Keep Turning Left. (My apologies, I know the author is here and I'm glad he's having success with it). ...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

Dinghy price I saw was online.

As for pricing differences with West Marine, I also typically find Defender to be less expensive. But not always. Shipping, however, is often a deal breaker. WM...

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

Had to google skin so soft scientific tests. There are several. Too much of a PITA to copy links on my iPad.

Generalization is that it does work on mosquitos. However, not as well as DEET. ...

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

As I follow a few of these vicarious YouTube channels now, I'm finding that production quality has little correlation to my viewer loyalty or interest. There is minimum bar, where it may be so bad,...

Re: Hunter 27 - A Little Look Please?

The pushback on what a survey and liability cost, as compared to the cost of the boat, never makes sense to me. The cost of your boat has nothing to do with the damage you may cause to another boat...

Re: Defender's Annual Warehouse Sale!

I just took a look at an inflatable. Says it's on sale, but it's the same price I could have paid all winter.

Re: What's the *second* best way to keep spiders off your boat?

I have a skin so soft theory. To start, there must be different skin chemistries that differ in their attraction of insects. I've sat outside, at dusk, when they come out and not been bitten much...

Re: Is this a dumb idea?

Spent too many years as a kid, jacking family boats up off their trailer, just far enough to get a paint brush under the skids. Used a car floor jack and lots of blocks of wood to reach under the...

Re: Dead engine hour meter

You can do whatever works for you. At a minimum, your engine rebuild documentation should note the total hours on the meter, when it was done.

I would think of it, however, in the mind of...

Re: Flagship marine?

Even at 5 hrs, that's a draw below what you estimate for the unit. Then reduce battery capacity by half, as that's all you should drain the battery to, then by the inefficiency of not having brand...

Re: Order of operations

I've had to take whatever I could get for the first season, after buying. Not so bad, as you're gettimg used to the boat anyway. Then shop for the right spot.

Re: The Voyages of Paragon, Season 2

Smack this footage was shot two years ago. If Drake didn't figure out whatever you're talking about, there are a couple of seasons in the can already.

Re: Going to look at a new to us boat.

Is that the Jackknife whose rudder was falling out at the start of a race last summer? I was sailing past her, while she was negotiating her rescue with the USCG.

Re: Volvo a damp squib?

We'll have to see when they arrive. Looks to be over Mother's Day weekend, which also happens to be my wife's birthday weekend. I'm hoping to sneak over for a few hours.

Re: Volvo a damp squib?

Well, it still is. Vids of getting knocked down are a dime a dozen.

It's a 40,000 mile race and that would be a vid of maybe 1/10th of a mile of it? I'm not picking on it, the vid is clearly...

Love it, Drake. Been waiting quite a while to see you guys in our neck of the woods. I vaguely recall you being here a couple of years back and wishing I had the chance to come over and say hello. ...

Re: AIS phantom ship

That makes more sense than a program that would retransmit AIS signals. Seems like it was just confused.

Your hypothesis that the internal gps was malfunctioning sounds most plausible. Given...

Re: What is a Cal 29 worth that needs the beam replaced?

Got it. Looks like ugly job to me.

Market value typically goes down by more than the cost of the job. First, you don't know what you don't know. Maybe you get into it and reveal a new...

Re: spade rudder and prop protection

I must not be visualizing the steel post properly. Spade rudders typically rotate from near the center. I'm picturing the leading edge just rotating away from the post. What am I missing?

Re: What is a Cal 29 worth that needs the beam replaced?

If you need to replace the maximum width of the hull, that's a serious problem.

Are you referring to some sort of step for the compression post?
