Why is our boat such a mess?

The way I look at it most people who live aboard boats are 1) "Mr Bodge it's", 2) "Mr Fix It's" or 3) "Mr I will pay someone else to do it"
I must admit to being a bit of the first two and as a...

Re: What is the worst sailing or marine invention ever?

Re: 6v or 12v batteries

Re: 6v or 12v batteries

Sounds a good deal, I have no gold, no cattle and a woman that castrates me on a monday and sows it back on on Sunday so she can do the same again. She does this as she knows I will do at least one...

Re: 6v or 12v batteries

Thanks Celenoglu.. there is not too much difference in the price between a 6v and a 12 v so it seems more sense to go for the 12v?

Re: Are sailors an easy target?

It is strange and sometimes a total misconception to think all boat owners are wealthy. Some certainly are and good luck to them.
There are also others like ourselves whose home is their boat. We...
