Re: Storage Unit?

Well, I think when we pull the plug, we'll go with the option of buying a covered trailer. I never thought about just parking it at my father's house, or on a military base storage facility. Should...

Re: Grey Water in No discharge areas

Auspicious and Minnewaska, thanks.

I do intend to 'sail lightly' but it does not seem practical to hold all grey water in. Using better, low-impact (environmentally) soaps and taking short...

Re: Sailing in Clearwater/Tampa Bay Fl.

Re: Unused Head

On that size of boat, I am assuming there are at least 2 other heads. Perhaps this one really isn't necessary? Before you rebuild it, consider the other uses you may have for the space - dedicated...

Maine Sail,

Thanks for the info. However, that brings the issue up of why some testers do their tests at multiple ratios. Is there truly no difference in how an anchor will set, regardless of...

As the OP, I appreciate the discussion. I am definitely leaning toward a 3.5 kW diesel genset. The funny part is the assumption that I want this to run AC and intend to run it all night.

They just look like a pretty nice, well-built boat, yet have catalina or even lower pricing. Well, a bit more research is in order.

What is the 411 on the Kiries?

I have looked at these and they seem quite nice, yet strangely are rather affordable? At least below the 54 foot length. What am I missing? :o

Of course, most are in the med...:p
