Re: USCG Doc Renewal Fee

Any former federal employees want to start a thread "Oh if taxpayers only knew what really goes on"?

By the way, I think 26 bucks is pretty cheap. I wish I could register my car that cheaply.

Re: Removing vinyl interior, refinishing.

We did like gravy on our wanderer. Like he said, it came out easy and the new went in easy with 3m spray adhesive. Been in the v birth two years now. Looks good. Just try to get as much of the old...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

This weekend our son and his three year old daughter joined us for a weekend on the Potomac and St. Mary's River. Just a great time.

Re: Catalina 27 RPMs drop to zero

Re: Advice From Young Punks

Apparently there are very few young punks subscribing to this forum. Maybe they have more important things to do, like pursuing careers, raising families, or sailing.

Re: Bimini

Our 66 Pearson Wanderer is similar to the Alberg on deck. We mounted a cheap bimini forward of the helm so it folds up easily and neatly over the forward part of the companionway cover. It is out of...

Re: Origo Electric/Alcohol Stove

If the price is right it can still be a good deal even if he doesn't wire the electric side. The alcohol side will still work fine.

Nothing wrong with propane if your boat is already equipped but...

Re: Origo Electric/Alcohol Stove

I had myself convinced that pressure alcohol was ok until I happened on a good deal on ebay for the origo combination stove. I would not like to go back to pressurized alcohol.

Re: Air Head Composting Toilet or Similar Mfg.

I ended up connecting the vent to the hole used for the former waste pumpout. I didn't see any point in putting another hole in the deck so I ran the hose to the existing hole and put a cowl vent...

Re: sail on or sail off?

Take it off, but do whatever it takes to quiet the furling gear. Last winter and spring everyone on our dock got to listen to the in mast gear on one boat clang away. Not to bad for me on the far...

Here's is a method that can work in a pinch. Tie a loop in the end of a jibsheet or any piece of rope. Like a stirrup. Drop that in the water and wrap the other end around a winch. Person in the...

Re: 2014 Sailing Season

I was in Urbana a week ago. Just a heads up, it's maybe impossible to get diesel and ice there. I couldn't believe the marinas didn't have either. If you need such supplies, better to try Carter...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Glad if I could help. We have a 30 foot Pearson and the composter fit easily.

There are at least four of these units on boats at our dock and none of the owners are ever fixing them. There are...

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

Get an airhead. 1,000 dollars and a one hour install and you are on your way. Get rid of the thruhulls.

Re: USCG Documentation Fee Question

Call them up and ask. They offer very good customer service.

The bright side is you only have to pay once. Unless things change.

Re: Kenyon Alcohol Stove Maintenance

I used a pressure stove for about a year and sort of enjoyed the whole zen of cooking on it. I would never turn my back on it. I would not even leave it long enough to take a leak.
