Re: micro Jump Starters - anyone tried them on your boat?

Come on! Have a little imagination - it's a boat, things go wrong all the time, even when you've prepared properly. Ever carry a rigging knife on you when you sail? Besides, it's the size of a thin...

micro Jump Starters - anyone tried them on your boat?

Quick forum search came up empty. Curious if anyone's tried one of these on their boat fitted with a smaller diesel, say 10-15hp? Specs claim it can jump a 3L or smaller diesel engine.

Re: NuTeaks C-Flor installed on a Catalina 30

Re: New Hatch Lenses in Texas

RainDog, my apologies as I thought that part of the process was understood. They really need the hatches in order to ensure a proper fit. They will also replace the gaskets and check if the frame...

Just an option, I realize it isn't exactly what you're looking for but they have a very good reputation if you can swing it. Good luck.

Re: Variable speed polisher recommendation

Have the Makita and I just use a smaller backing plate on it. Haven't had any issues getting into tight corners, sometimes I'll remove the loop handle. It's really not that heavy.

re: USCG 6 Pack License

Correct, the CG captures sea service on form CG-7195. For better or worse, they aren't looking for the actual log books. BTW, if it's your first time qualifying for the license, you can go back to...

Re: Going to need to re powersomeday..

Can't answer that with much certainty, but if you decide to go the generator/electric propulsion route, I'm pretty sure there won't be much sailing involved.

Re: BVI in the spring - Looking for Wisdom

Wow, don't hear that often. We had a great time in the BVI, but it's definitely on the commercial side of things. Will have to consider the Abacos considering the source.

Re: Going to BVI! Bring cash?

Kind of depends on your plans for your charter. We grabbed a mooring every night and it was convenient to have cash on hand to pay the boat boy. If you'll be anchoring out then that won't matter. ...
