Conclusion

Hi Guys,

I sold my O'day 35 in June of 2014. She was an excellent boat for my use: day sails, weekend cruises, week long cruises. My family of five and I had a lot of fun with that boat. Now the...

Re: Can I reef with this furler

Hey,

I can't read the name on the drum but it looks like an old Hood unit. Those did not reef and Hood sold an upgrade kit to make them single line that did allow reefing.

I would assume you...

Re: Blue Jacket 40

Hey,

The previous owner of my boat bought a Blue Jacket 40 (I guess you're not supposed to call it the BJ40). That's why he sold the C&C. I've corresponded with him a few times and he is happy...

Re: Lowering the mast on a Cat 22 with auto fulrer?

Hi Greg,

Welcome!

I have raised and lowered the mast by myself. It's easier and faster with help, but with some planning, you can do it yourself. There are few difficult things: The mast can't...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

I don't care if the fisherman have AIS. I don't really care if ANYONE has AIS. It's MY responsibility to be alert, spot other vessels, and take steps to pass safely. I do appreciate that AIS exists...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

Hello,

IMHO, for your use, an AIS receiver would be a good idea. I don't think you need a transceiver. Whatever you do get, forget about interfacing it to your old garmin unit. First I doubt it...

Re: Prep boat's INTERIOR for possible knockdown

Hey,

I have never prepared for a knock down and doubt that I ever will. I'm mostly a fair weather sailor and plan on staying that way. I do go out in high winds, and before I leave my mooring I...

Re: Sleeping Accommodations --- is there a thread?

Hey,

My Newport 28 had two settees in the main cabin. The port would expand to a double. There was a filler sheet under cushions that had legs on one side and pins on the other to lock it in...

Re: Lowering the mast on a Cat 22 with auto fulrer?

Hey,

When I trailer sailed my C22 I would leave the mainsail on the boom, but take the boom off the mast when lowering the rig. I would leave the genoa on the furler when lowering the mast as...

Re: Maine bound & back

Hey,

You must have the wrong boat :). I was in Maine a few weeks ago. I was on two boats and they had no problem with lobster pots. They ignored them and sailed right over the floats.

The first...

Re: Moving up - How do you know it's the right time?

I think you know you're ready when either your requirements change, or you have gained enough experience to know your current boat isn't 'the one' anymore, or you have found enough $ to make...

Re: Lowering the mast on a Cat 22 with auto fulrer?

Hello,

I owned a C22 back in 2003-4. My boat had a Furlex furler. Once the mast was down all I needed to do was remove the pin from the forestay to the stem on the bow. Other furlers may be...

Re: micro Jump Starters - anyone tried them on your boat?

Hey,

That looks cool.

In 2004, when I bought my first 'big' boat (28' Newport) with inboard diesel, ac/dc electrical systems, etc, I was worried about dead batteries. So I bought one of the...

Re: Thoughts on the C&C 115?

Hello,

I own a C&C 110 (the predecessor to the 115), race against a 115, and a friend just bought a 121, so I am prejudiced towards C&C. The 115 is a very fast boat that can comfortably cruise.

Re: Yanmar 3YM20 won't rev past 1000 RPM

Hey,

Your boat has a water injection exhaust system. The cooling water that was sucked up from the sea and run through the heat exchanger is then injected into the exhaust. This cools the exhaust...

Re: Yanmar 3YM20 won't rev past 1000 RPM

Hey,

Check your prop / shaft. Perhaps you have something wrapped around the shaft or prop. That would certainly slow the engine down.

Re: Moving up in size. Suggestions?

Hey,

A C&C 110 might fit your needs. It has over 6' headroom. I'm only 5' 7" so I don't need a lot of headroom. My friend was on my boat today. He's 6' 5" and could not stand up straight, so I...

Re: Connect a Garmin 740s to an Airmar DST800

Hey,

The DST800 you bought will send depth information to the 740S. So if all you want to display is the depth of the water it will work. However, it won't connect to the Sounder port on the 740S...

Just a little note that mattituck was dredged this year to 10' at MLW. So now almost anyone can get in or out at any time.
