Re: Mermaid A/C Issue

Pictures of the small, silver, breaker type item, 2 X 2 1/2 X 1" tall are not possible without some disassembly. It is reset by feel and is well hidden, and hardly visible due to space restrictions....

Re: What is the best Sailing book you have read?

"The Ship and the Storm" by Jim Carrier. Best book I ever opened, sailing or otherwise. Would love to meet Jim as I understand he hangs around the Gulf Coast. About the loss of the sailing ship...

Re: Radar reflector questions

Always have one up while cruising, too much barge traffic along the Gulf Coast to be without one. Were we to go south from here, down below Belize or so, we would not run one at all. Pirates too...

Re: 3 GM 30 Yanmar, White Powder

Great idea, will try it in the morning. There could be a gasket but if so it is not visible.

3 GM 30 Yanmar, White Powder

We have a 3 GM 30 Yanmar in our boat. The engine looks and runs like new, but is about 10 or so years old and has been properly maintained since new.

Re: 700% increase in Insurance!

Hi there Joe. We have a similar problem with Allstate, and Boat US is even higher. Last year the policy more than doubled. As a result we cut the coverage in half and retained liability in order...
