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. ...

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

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...

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.

Great book. Describes in detail the brutal conditions that some sailors on whale ships endured. A hard life, for sure.

Boat U.S. also has a smart phone app that, I believe, can automatically relay your membership and other information, along with your location when you need a tow.
