Re: Seattle / San Juan Island Boatyard

CSR in Seattle is indeed well thought of... Seaview, not so much. See this recent Facebook thread (https://www.facebook.com/threesheetsnw/posts/10151922050120800?stream_ref=10) (which poses a similar...

Re: Chart Plotter Location?

I voted before I read the first post... think I answered wrong.

Our plotter is currently located on the pedestal. I prefer it located under the dodger. When we upgrade, that's where the new one...

Re: Puget No Discharge Zone

State Department of Ecology is on step two of a six step process to implement this. This step is "Evaluation and Stakeholder Outreach" by which they mean us. So if you want to vent to them about it,...

Re: Shore power and lights

Entirely the built-in 12v lighting system, here. Not for any special reason; just because it's already there, and bringing in a bunch of AC lamps instead would just take up space that's already tight...

Re: sailboat and ferry collide!

There's a slightly different explanation for the use of "left/right" for rudder commands that makes more sense than you might initially suspect:

Re: Do marina liveaboards dump their s@!^ in the river?

I guess it's not impossible, but I've been living aboard for about four years now in a couple of different marinas and have never heard anyone say they did, or caught anyone at it. The active fleet...

Re: Radio direction finder app?

On my charts, where radio towers are indicated, it also includes the frequency and station ID where they are transmitting in the AM range.

Always assumed this was the purpose, though I've never...

Re: Don't read this unless you have time . .

I'm a little curious about this too... only time I have ever had one, it looked pretty bullet-proof. But they happen; often the reported coordinates coincide with a marina!

Re: Don't read this unless you have time . .

No doubt this will be true at some point, but right now, what I hear far more of on the radio are accidental EPIRB activations! Must be at least one a week around these parts in the summer.

Re: Surveying a Freedom 36/38

My wife and I just purchased a 36 this past summer. We've been quite happy with it so far.

I would second or third the recommendation to get the hull tapped out thoroughly. We have had no problem...

Thanks, Ed. That's exactly what I was hoping to hear. I'll take a look around for that book today, too.

Re: Going up the mast when the boat is in a lift

I don't think I would go up while it's in the slings, but I have gone up the mast while on the hard, and it's much more productive than going up while in the water. Everything is rock solid; much...

Re: Freedom 36/38

Thanks for the heads-up. I actually asked the broker about the hull coring, and she said she didn't believe it was cored. I did a little more digging and found something in another forum saying that...

Just to be clear, we haven't bought it yet, I'm still poking around trying to clarify this stuff first.

Freedom 36/38

I'm wondering if I can get some quick feedback from folks on the Freedom 36/38 line. I have picked over most of the threads that have discussed the somewhat unusual freestanding rig design, and that...

Re: C&c 37+

Well, the 37+ we had planned to see sold right before we got there. But it was immediately replaced by a 37/40 XL listed by the same broker, so we went to look at that instead.

It's in pretty good...

Re: First Boat 1980 Hunter 33 ?

Funny! No, the "R" version is a little to austere for my wife. But we are coming up via Amtrak! I will definitely check with djodenda and see what his experience was.

Thanks Faster! I appreciate that.

We're a little uncertain about some of the tax implications about buying in Canada and exporting the boat; I know we'll get hit with state taxes down here either...

Talked to a guy recently who had a forty footer trucked out to Seattle from up-state New York; he said it ran about $15,000.

Re: C&c 37+

We're still seriously looking at it. You're absolutely right about the standing rigging. The issue is really the cost of the mast itself. This boat is priced in line with the rest of the market right...
