Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

I think the best question was posted by Christian: why?
My reasoning was purely subjective.
My diesel needed to be replaced, so I started looking at the options. Several years ago...

Re: walker bay vs water tender

Yeah, check Craig's List. You might even be able to buy your old one ;>)

Seriously, though, a boater at our marina did find the equipment stolen from his boat on the local Craig's List.

Re: BVI Yacht Charters - good company?

If anyone is still inquiring about BVI Yacht Charters; we just returned from 10 days in BVI's with them. They're great. This was our second time chartering with them and I'll use them the next...

Re: Doyle "StackPack", Quantum version or other?

As an older sailor, I had difficulty lowering and bagging the main on my Hunter 29.5; especially, if there was any wind. And since I didn't take the boat out very often when there wasn't any...

Re: Replacing IC engine with electric motor

Anyone who thinks that we're not creating a footprint or some type of pollution is very naive. Fiberglass manufacturing, teak forestry, antifouling paint, the metals, the oils. The list goes on. ...

Re: Replacing IC engine with electric motor

I had my Hunter 29.5 converted to electric propulsion last year. It could be a DYI project if you're very comfortable with wiring your boat. Looking at my costs, you're still looking at...

Re: Alcohol stoves in use?

Re: Beginners Boat

I had an 1985 O'Day 23. Simple to maintain, easy sail plan, stable, and the swing keel kept me out of serious trouble. It has a small initial investment and you can still get parts. If I wanted a...

Re: The future of the sailing world. Why are there so few young people cruising??

Start early, start small. I paid for my grandson's week-long sailing camp. They just learn the basics on a Sunfish, but the seed is planted. He goes out with me on my boat, Hunter 29.5, but he...

Re: My pet fear

I got directly struck last May, while my boat was at its dock. Witnesses said a 20 ft. diameter explosion occurred at the top of my mast. Needless to say, much of my electronics was fried, but many...

Re: Boat cushions

We just got bottom-sider clones from C-Cushion. I made "pillow case" storage covers for them so i could stow them in a cockpit locker without worrying about damaging them. I went to a dollar store...

Re: Docking with an outboard

Practice, practice, practice. Go to a fairly open area and try different methods. I had an O'Day 23 with the rudder and motor separate. I loved the maneuverability it gave me I always docked...

Re: What a dumbass!

Tried to raise the mainsail once and couldn't understand why it was so difficult. I thought it was just time to lube the sailtrack. So I used a winch to aid me and I really cranked on it.

My Hunter 29.5 was struck by lightening 2 days ago. She's still afloat, so I guess that's the good news. I'm trying to determine what my next step should be and it seems that the concensus opinion...

Electric Propulsion.

During a tropical storm, saltwater got siphoned into my Yanmar 2GM and sat for about a month before I realized it. I tried to salvage the engine, but it was pretty much a basket-case. My wife and I...
