Re: Sailing to Catalina Island via Long Beach Memorial Day weekend

Re: Just how monumentally stupid an idea is it to go with black non-skid?

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...
