Re: Cruising Gear

I've got a "gale sail" that's "like new, in box", when caught I've never had enough advance warning to get the thing hanked on before it was too dangerous to go forward.

Re: "The Cat" Propane heater

Re: Auto-Pilot for Morgan 33 OI...

Gary, For about the last ten years Ray has used the gray Mark II wheel drive so I don't really think there is a difference in capacity, maybe they just decided to change the rating.

Re: San Fran to Marina del Rey delivery

I've not been in to Monterey but I'll only go in to Morro Bay in fair weather and visibility. It's a long winding sand filled channel in AND they are ALWAYS dredging so you never know where the...

Re: what to check for before boat delivery?

Short answer: A fuel injected diesel will not run (for very long) with air in the fuel lines, air introduced by a filter change or fuel delivery problem say. So you must "bleed" the air from the...

Re: what to check for before boat delivery?

I bought my boat in San Francisco and brought it about 450nm home to San Diego, during haul out for survey the bottom was pressure washed. The batteries were dry and old so I had them replaced at...

Re: Sea Furl 5/325 vs Shafer 2100

My Schaefer 2100 is only about 12 years old and pretty much flawless except when I bought the boat about 5 years ago the lower bearing drum was frozen. On the early models they neglected to put some...

I'd wait, all you'd gain is 2 years depreciation and needless expense, save that 500 a month towards purchase

Re: Manual Toilet Questions

I've replaced the Jabsco with a Raritan PHII on every boat I've had, somehow not a single bolt hole has ever lined up, a little Marinetex and no one notices.
I'd throw a Jabsco away and replace it...

Re: My newest project

The sail drives will be in the gap, side by side, on each side of centerline then ? I've been thinking about this for awhile, seems like it forces engine location aft ?

Re: Do you make guests wear PFDs?

No, And they can piss over the side if they want or get a cold beer from the fridge if they bring me one too. More like cruising with Ragnar Lothbrok than William Bligh, my crew are all volunteers.;)

Re: My Boat is being accused of breaking the pumpout?

Yeah Rich, but none of that is caused by the OP or his plastic tank based MSD system is it ? Other than the pump, which should draw a vacuum on the tank without self destructing, it's a system with...

Re: Does anyone use belt PFDs?

Yeah, Just a little too "fanny pack" for me yet, and after a tough night ashore if I end up in the water before reaching the boat I'm probably too "clumsy" to get it over my head.

Re: My Boat is being accused of breaking the pumpout?

I don't see how that is possible.
It's a vacuum pump that draws a vacuum on a tank, the hose is connected to the tank not the pump, so the pump never pumps anything but air. You can pump gravel with...

Re: Buehler Emily

Homemade wood burning stove in a homemade wood boat, interesting concept.
In my neighborhood that "boomkin and bowsprit" would require a 40' slip, 8 year waitlist and $735/month or 88.2% of the...
