Re: Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

Thanks for all the answers. No pinching of fuel or electrical lines that I can see. The problem arose pretty quickly. Had it running at home when I got it running for the season, but the cover was...

Tohatsu 25 Air intake issue.

The Tohatsu 25 will idle and run perfectly with the engine cover off but as soon as I put the cover on it begins to sputter. The air intake on the cover is not blocked in any way but for some reason...

Re: How often to change impeller?

Re: SmartGuage Review

Makes sense as the blower always runs for a bit after it is turned off. I'll see if I can find a wire diagram for the thermostat to see if it could be wired to the relay?

Re: SmartGuage Review

Main Sail

Both the Link 10 and SmartGuage can be used to operate a relay, correct? If that is correct would the SmartGuage be a better option than the Link 10 to turn off an Espar heater?

Re: SmartGuage Review

Another great article by Main Sail.

I too have a Link 10. I would probably have more confidence in it if I followed the instructions and periodically re-synced it when I knew the battery banks are...

Re: Chartplotter at the nav station

As a coastal cruiser I prefer the chart plotter at the helm (a fixed mount with radar in my case, a Garmin 3006). Down below if I need to check position / course I'll use either a handheld Garmin...

Re: Radar Chartplotter?

Having a radar overlay is probably best confirmation of where you are in pea soup fog short of being right next to a marker. Getthe redundancy with a separate handheld or transportable GPS.

Re: Hiring Contractors - Are component/part prices typically higher than online?

Re: Old Glory, slightly moldy. What to do?

Re: Offshore bluewater cruising - what sailboat would be best?

Put the small Pacific Seacraft boats on the list: Flicka and Danna. I think they are about 22 and 26 respectively. Pacific Seacraft may have had a third under 30 model.

Re: need rudder part for 1951 Beetle Boat Gull

The Dyer Dhow sailing dinghy uses a removable rudder. The company is still in business. Maybe you can adapt their parts (all bronze) or some another dinghy company that uses a removable rudder.

Re: Best Boat Insurance Companies?

Most home owner policies let you add a rider for small boats. That would likely be the cheapest option.
