Re: Electronic Auto Bilge Switches, yay or nay?

One boat back we had electronic switches in shower sumps. I don't remember the brand but they had 2 contacts on the exterior that measured something (capacitance, resistance?). They came with the...

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

IMHO there is NO good financial reason to build new. But there are plenty of emotional reasons. You get exactly what you want, no one else has messed up any systems, no one else has overheated...

Re: Looking for premium coastal cruiser 39 LOA or less

There's a Morris Ocean 38, and a few 36 Justine's in brokerage right now.

I'm biased, but these are both great sailing boats, built for cruising, easy on the eye and I can say for sure that single...

Re: Fouling this season - How was it for you?

We had many barnacles on the prop. Usually, Propspeed does it's job, this year, not so much. It wasn't covered, but there were quite a few that I needed to scrape off in mid August. The water...

Re: Nesting cookware review

+ 1 for the Cuisinart. Looks like 2 hulls or 1, we like the same cookware.

Re: I can't kick the old school

Jeff your comments are right on and rational.

But we've all failed an intelligence test about rational behavior. We own boats.

It's just a matter of degree!

Re: I can't kick the old school

I kinda hope the OP buys the schooner, and sails by me so I can watch. I think schooners have perhaps the prettiest sail plan going.

That said, I understand and appreciate what capta is saying...

Re: Light-light air!!! Exciting stuff?

Agree with John. Nothing like a code zero. I think someone else said get light weight sheets. Definitely. We've got a code zero that the sail maker told me to furl above 12 apparent, if I...

Re: Spinaker or Genaker - which do you prefer?

One word, code zero on a furler.

These new furlers work on a torsion rope that is flexible, eliminating the extrusion. You set everything up at your leisure before you get underway. The sail...

Re: Improving visibility under headsail

I had sails made once by a well know sailmaker. Their instinct if you don't talk to them is to get you the best performance possible. Their first cut was pretty much a deck sweeper. Even...

Re: Your Favorite U.S. Coastline

Go to early, it's damp and foggy, go to late, it's clear and too cold to sit on deck for sundowners. Maine is absolutely perfect, for about 6 weeks every year.;)

Re: Rudder Failures

Re: Sailboat, new vs used

5 boats over too many years to count, 1 new, 4 used.

No question if minimizing the negative return on investment that boat ownership represents, then buy used. But boat ownership is not an...

Re: To survey or not to survey; that is the question.

Re: Tohatsu 6HP Sailpro Stalling

All this advice is good. For sure, the best thing is to take the carb completely apart, soak it in cleaner removing the expendables, get a rebuild kit and replace all the expendables. Yes, and an...

Re: Tohatsu 6HP Sailpro Stalling

With the bowl removed, look at the thing upside down. You'll see the jets that are little tubes that go up into the carb. Get some spray cleaner with that little pipe on it, stick that little pipe...

Wait, then again, I think if MED props this correctly, he'll be able to do one of those cypress gardens water ski shows whilst enjoying the on board sauna. Now that's living:D

Re: Turn that frown upside down! Lets talk NEW engines!

I think you did fine, no one hurt. We get a lot of this stuff in my neighborhood, big power boats, big wakes, close passes, poor seamanship. Having the money to buy a big power clorox bottle...
