Re: Florida is at it again

A number of years ago I bought a house on a lake. One of the reasons I loved the house so much was that it was private. Although there were neighbors on both sides, I could not see their houses...

Question Re: backing into a slip with single screw

Capt. Max,
I appreciate your post. That's the way I was taught. Not saying I can always do it, just that it's the way I know it's SUPPOSED to work. Multiple factors can complicate the situation...

Re: Cruising Maine JUL2015

:eek:Boil? Is that what Maine-iacs do??? In RI, we steam lobsters. 2 inches of salt water in the lobster pot. 20 minutes. Doesn't really matter about the pounds.

Re: I Paid a Dude. And I Liked It.

I pay my yard to do quite a lot of the work. Why? Because I only have weekends in season to go sailing. And not every weekend. And sometimes the weather does not cooperate. So, yeah, I pay the yard...

Re: "New Generation Anchors"

Hmmm... I had been considering "upgrading" to a Spade from my genuine Bruce. Maybe I need to reconsider. Although the Bruce has done well for me in the mud of the Chesapeake, the only place I've...

Re: "New Generation Anchors"

I will be very interested to hear your observations on (any) differences between the Mantus and Spade. (I bought a Mantus, but it does not fit well on my bow roller. The Spade, because it does not...

Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

JimsCal....thanks for the tip. Right now there is a speedseal cover installed, so I don't think I'm able to file that. However, I believe that in the parts box there is the original cover. So I...

Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

Thanks for all the tips. What I'm taking away from this so far is that the situation could be "normal" or could indicate a problem.

After I launch in a few weeks, I'll open up the heat...

Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

Unfortunately, I do not know. I've owned the boat about 2 years. I am fairly confident that it is original. Is your guess that there there may be blockages in there and that the raw water pump has...

Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

Currently has a Speedseal cover (was on the boat when I bought it 2 years ago), so it cannot be flipped. But I'll check that and if I see any wear I'll try replacing it and see if that helps. ...

Re: Raw water pump...what's normal?

Hey Mark,
I can keep the boat from tilting when I'm just running the engine. But I soon as I use that vertical clothesline gizmo to haul up that big white flappy thingy, the boat starts to tilt. ...

Hmmm, I had not thought of that...I'll have to go below and check out the configuration of the hoses. However, my impression of the situation is that if I turned on the engine after sailing and just...

Raw water pump...what's normal?

I have a 1986 Westerbeke 27 and always motor on and off the dock. When I start the engine at the dock, I normally get exhaust water splashes right away, even if the boat has been sitting for a...

Re: Potomac or Rappahannock?

Just requires running through a mile or two of crab traps that booby trap the mouth of the West and Rhode Rivers like a mine field. Yup, I know there are (supposedly) float free channels, but if the...

Re: Celestial Navigation

I apologize in advance for what is likely a dumb question. Can you do CN and noon shots in an enclosed body of water like the Chesapeake? My crude understanding of how a sextant works is that you...

Re: Whats your best bit of kit??

Re: New Gen water ballasted anchor

Barefoot,
You are still at mortal risk. 100 mph only protects against category I Hurricanes. To be safe, you should order a second anchor and deploy both at all times. You might then gain...

My question is about prop WASH.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

When docking, I use prop wash to help steer the boat. How does that work with twin rudders? Since the rudders are offset from the prop.
