Re: Stereo Power Installation

We're on the dry side of Wa. State (for now). Friend has a pair of marine speakers mounted flush in the cockpit with no problems thus far. I am thinking of doing the same thing. At $50/pair,...

Re: Rewiring US Yacht 25

Thanks Brian. I just wanted to make sure wasn't missing something. The - bus has 20 #10's. I'm sure wiring the - to the - bus was obvious to most people, just not myself. And yes, it will...

Re: Bedding Deck Hardware With Butyl Tape

I'm a total nitwit with search function, so pardon if a repost:

I'm a total convert with butyl for rebedding. However, had one instance where it didn't seem the good solution. Used a wood base...

I didn't want to get too detailed...

I bought a roll from MainSail last year, wondered the same thing as you are right now.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

It was 100 deg F here today. Good ventilation can't hurt, IMHO. Also, I don't plan on heeling at 45 deg regularly. The holes should contain any stray liquid. Thanks for the input, however.

Re: Jabsco Head leak

Re: Don't "drive" your boat like it's a car!

Great topic! Have sailed Chinook (US Yacht 25) less than a year now. She's in a slip, and docking is one thing I'm definitely deficient at. It's usually solo. I've done all the beginner mistakes...
