Re: Plumbing..Hose reduction coupling? Does it exist?

The cheapest and safest fix I found for this was to simply replace the extension under the drain basket assembly on the sink with one of an appropriate size for the seacock. I prefer the adaptor on...

The zincs still look good! The rest needs a little work.

Re: Shaft/gearbox coming away from engine!!

It seems a bit strange to me, as though something pulled it backwards? That's a lot of gap between the transmission and the engine for an alignment issue. Are your mounts still in good condition,...

Re: Baggett and Sons East Coast Road Trip

That seems very restrictive! I can kind of understand some of it though. One of the issues we struggle with here is that there is no difference for yard or inside work area rates between companies...

Re: $95.00 an hour. phew

It's a shame you aren't here in Vancouver. :-)
We have the opposite experience here.
We do good work. We charge a lot less than the competition. We pay the high price to have a good sized shop,...

Re: Tea Tree Oil Recipe

The water and tea tree oil was a huge PITA for me. It always separated requiring shaking and it didn't spray nicely. I tried mixing it with some mild de-greasers and cleaners I used, thinking that...

Re: Replacing a tired Atomic 4 Gas Engine

Hi Encore.
A replacement with a diesel engine would be doable at the dock. However unless you are doing the job yourself so that the extra time required has no cost, it probably won't save you...

Re: $95.00 an hour. phew

What Azguy said. Now add to that the fact that to get the 15$ out of the 95$, they're taking on a huge amount of risk too.

If you think you're happy working all hours, with a huge amount of...

Re: Aren't boats too easy to steal?

There was an incident recently here where some cheeky thief was breaking into a boat(which had a very well stocked liquor cabinet) and drinking all the booze, repeatedly! Boats are hard enough to...

Re: oil vs varnish vs epoxy

I like varnish :-).
We use more durable 2 stage stuff on the interior of some boats, but on my sailboat I keep it simple.
One type of varnish(on everything). Saves creating the usual mess of...

Re: Sun Fish auto bailer

Do you have any photos of the existing sealant? If it was already silicone, it will be hard to get anything else to stick nicely, and probably not worth the effort to change. In that case I'd use...

Re: Shaft housing question -- galvanic corrosion?

It sounds to me like the surveyor is noting a potential long term issue. Typically if it's something of immediate concern they would give a deadline(eg. before use, within 30 days etc).

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

I use the shoreside bathrooms. Less expensive head repairs that way! On board is typically emergency only.

Re: Boatyard transducer installation mistake

I think what you intended, and my understanding of it are pretty close to each other. You suggest using the early time demand to "shock" them, and in your current post to "scare" them before moving...
