Re: Looking for a source of (first-aid) Medical Supplies

I got a great email I can forward you. They claim to have all kinds of prescription meds, but seem to only have Cialis and Viagra. But there prices are impressive!

Re: Need advice for autopilot

Below deck auto pilot is best, but expensive and a complicated and long install. If you are looking for a quick solution, and a very durable one at that look at the CPT autopilot. CPT Autopilot Inc....

Re: I called Mercury Marine

Check out airports they may sell a couple of gallons. I was surprised to see it in the southern tier NY. Guess they use it in snowmobiles.

Re: Onboard: Electric stove or other?

I think I read that the Orgio is made in China now. If you can find a Swedish made one then great.

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Well as said it was kind of a joke, it does seem good at comparing fairly similar boats, but if they are similar it will be more of evaluating very similar things, so not much use. It can't really be...

Re: Radiator Cap

Well worse case a blown head gasket will put more pressure on the system. But I would start looking elsewhere. First get a new cap. You may have just put in too much coolant when topping it up. If...

Re: I called Mercury Marine

Did your owners manual say to do that? If not they should cover it. Now things like this do change over time, with changes in fuel additives and the fuel itself. So what may have been good practice...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

I did not mention it in my post before, but glad to hear you are OK, it is a really good thing you were not on some kind of production boat, that would have splintered into a thousand shards. Oh...

Re: Turn that frown upside down! Lets talk NEW engines!

My personal preference would to go normally aspirated if possible(as I said in the other thread). but that leaves you a bit short of HP, but Beta makes a normally aspirated four cylinder that makes...

Re: Won't Start after 4 hours of cruising.

This sounds like a real possibility. Perhaps with the 20 minuets it settled back down the vent, and could have even been foamed up if the fuel went in really quickly. Especially if there was any...

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

Yes, this is the trick, lots of WD40 (WD stands for water displacement). I would spray it all down with fresh water, change oild, and then hose it off with WD40, get a gallon can of the stuff if you...

Re: I hate boats...

Unfortunately the 90 horsepower he has kind of falls between the Beta 75 and 105, with the 105 being turbo. He falls into the same gap with Yanmar, with real advantage going to the Beta 75 being...

Re: Production Boats and the Limits

Re: diesel fuel funnel with filter

Yea, I don't think it would flow fast enough. If you want to do more filtration I think you need to set up some sort of fuel polishing system. 30 micron will take some pressure to get the fuel to...
