Engine Number on Perkins 4.108

I (supposedly) need my engine number for my title and insurance. The number I found on the engine block doesn't match the format in my manual (Manual has one line of numbers, my engine has two) so I...

Hey Garret,
Good for you! Yeah, it's time to get out on the water!
Couple questions: does your buddy know how to sail? Are you on a lake, bay, or ocean?
You'll definitely want a detailed chart of...

Re: Solid Fuel Stove Fuel

I was on the boat last week in Rhode Island and it rain pretty hard all week. It wasn't cold enough to run the stove, but something was running during the storm: water. Yup, the Charlie Noble, or the...

New to Sailing

Welcome! Have fun and enjoy! Take it slow and keep it fun! You learn over time what kind of sailing and what kind of boat will be right for you. The more you sail the more you'll know!

Thanks for your "pressure post", Tom. That makes a lot of sense. Our boat isn't known for having great ventilation anyway. We are considering installing a couple of dorades and possibly another...

Re: Solid Fuel Stove Fuel

Thanks for the thoughts and advice! I think I'll try to get the stove lit fast (I'm thinking of trying the "fire log idea" or some "fuel tablets" used by backpackers for "kindling"). Then use pellets...

Solid Fuel Stove Fuel

Okay, I've never had a solid fuel heater on my previous boats. This new boat (to us) has an old Shipmate solid fuel stove aboard. I would like to try it out (actually my wife is begging me to fire...

Re: NE Insurance Rates - Reasonable?

Quick update: Just got off the phone with Progressive. Their quote, for slightly better coverage, was $681/year. What a difference! I guess they have a bigger pool of money to play with and don't...

Re: NE Insurance Rates - Reasonable?

Thanks for all the feedback and ideas. I left a message for Admiralty (I called after closing) and hope to hear from them tomorrow. $950 for a $185K boat sounds reasonable to me. $2K for a $40K boat...

Dark and Stormy .....

One of the downsides of living in California is that a Dark 'n Stormy is a relatively unheard of beverage. Some high-end restaurant bars on the coast "get it", but it's tough going for Dark 'n Stormy...

NE Insurance Rates - Reasonable?

Just got a $2,000/yr quote on a 1979 Morgan 38-footer from Boat US. We're in Rhode Island. We got the boat for free (but that doesn't mean we haven't sunk some money into it), and we're on it only...

Nice pictures, and a great way to minimize the use of your autohelm (and battery power)!

Re: Ever been injured on your boat? Just happened to me.

While sailing our Alberg 37 yawl from Martha's Vineyard to Nantucket, we were leaving Vineyard Haven and our guests were standing on deck. The wind began to shift and I knew we were gonna jibe. I...

Ditch bag

First of all the ditch bag should be buoyant (in case you drop it in the water trying to get into the raft). Inside you want some good rescue gear and survival gear.

Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative

Thanks, SloopJonB for the encouraging words. I'd say my engine looks like your "before" picture. Your "after" engine is beautiful! It's nice to know the Perkins is worth fixing up.

Bad things that happen at sea.

Most boats are lost as a result of changing the boat's original name, and beginning a voyage on a Friday. ;-)

Boat recommendations for a Newbe

I sailed dinghies, Hobie Cats, Lasers, then sailed on friend's 23-footers & 30-footers. My first "big boat" was a Catalina 34 (which I lived aboard). And it turned out to be a great boat for my...
