Re: Liveaboard Gulf Coast Florida Marina

I was at The marina at Fishermen's Village, Punta Gorda, Florida (http://www.fishville.com/marina/) last week and they have a lot of live aboards, most are seasonal, but several live there year...

Re: Water Heater: 5 or 6.5 Gallons?

When I'm on AC shore power, the temperature is set at 105 degrees, but it gets much hotter when using the engine, somewhere around 125 degrees. Unfortunately, the heating element just fried last...

Re: Just Go!

Ironically, more than 80 percent of the cruisers I've met over the years are cruising on boats less than 40 feet long. Most are in the late 40s to early 70s, they exist on meager incomes, social...

Re: Fun In The Sun...

The wind is howling at 30 plus knots right now, temperatures dipped into the upper 50s last night, and I thought I would freeze to death. Ironically, it was 15 degrees back home and they're expecting...

Re: Fun In The Sun...

Had the fries yesterday when I took my wife to lunch there. She got some sort of monster burger, I opted for the grouper fish sticks - I shoulda got a burger. But the fries were awesome.

Here's a...

Re: Water Heater: 5 or 6.5 Gallons?

I have a 15 and it's barely enough for two people taking a shower and washing dinner dishes.

Fun In The Sun...

One of the favorite destinations of east coast cruisers is Marathon, Florida. Many end up on mooring balls in Boot Key Harbor, which is currently filled to capacity awaiting a good weather window for...

Re: boats with the most head room

Re: boats with the most head room

I have a guy that sails with me once in a while, he stands 6'-7" and never gets close to hitting his head on my Morgan 33 Out Island. I believe the interior clearance is about 7 feet.

Re: Do you think I'm going to blow myself up

I have read them. I once owned a marine dealership, we installed many fuel tanks in powerboats and a few in sailboats. It's pretty much common sense - not rocket science. Of course, common sense...

Re: Just Go!

Leo, if it were not a 1,500-mile drive I would invite you to come on down and have some fun. That web cam has been down for a month now, and when I asked at the marina what was being done, they said...

Re: Just Go!

Leisure time businesses fail all the time. They are based upon a thriving economy, which we no longer enjoy. The highest failure rate of all businesses is restaurants, quickly followed by outdoor...

Re: Baltimore Boat Show-2015

Keep in mind that when the Baltimore Boat show was the must attend event for boaters in Maryland and Virginia, Chesapeake Bay was relatively clean, there were tackle shops everywhere you looked,...

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

Jon, if he's gonna make those long cruises, he needs that hot lady that loves to sail before he needs anything else. Staying awake 24 hours straight while bypassing Georgia was about as long as I...

Re: Do you think I'm going to blow myself up

Why not just install a small, inboard tank, one that is vented properly and with a flush-mount gunwale fill spout. Nothing bigger than 12 gallons, and be sure to add fuel treatment with every fill...

Re: Baltimore Boat Show-2015

Actually, there was a time when there were more sailboats than powerboats, but that was when the show was held at the 5th Regiment Armory, and I was at that first show. At the armory, they didn't...

Re: Coastal cruising equipment and accessories

Geeze, It's a wonder that I'm not dead. I just got a whisker pole, only used it twice all last summer, no spinaker, don't think I can handle it safely, especially offshore, no sat phone, no...

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

I would say, with the exception of the battery leads, you will not have any problems as long as you own the boat using that wire. Battery leads, of course, really take a beating, therefore, I would...

Re: New marine air conditioning

This year, I'm adding a generator to run the AC. There have been lots of hot summer nights when the temperature and humidity are both in the low 89s and sleep became quite difficult. Additionally,...

Re: FWC kit for Atomic 4, a good idea?

If you want to keep that A4 carbon free and keep those valves well seated, there's nothing on the planet better than Marvel Mystery Oil. Even Moyer highly recommends using this stuff, and in my old...

Re: Just Go!

Leo, until 9 years ago, I owned powerboats, which limited my cruising range. The cost of owning a powerboat is 10 times that of a sailboat. When I purchased my first sailboat, I never looked back.

Re: Boat wire: is SAE tinned "good enough"?

Well, I guess my first question would be what are you going to use the wire for? Hey, it's just tinned, copper wire - nothing more, nothing less. Those specs are so high that in nearly every instance...

Re: New marine air conditioning

I have a 14,000 BTU heat pump in my Morgan 33 Out Island. It does a great job both cooling and heating the entire boat. It takes about 30 minutes to cool the cabin from 95 degrees to 72 degrees on a...
