Re: Derelict Catalina22 value? (bottom feeding content)

I stopped by and took another look at her. The hull has taken some serious damage along the deck-to-hull joint on the port side - the rub rail is missing, the joint is frighteningly wavy (like +-...

Re: coastal/offshore jacket

I have both Helly Hansen (coastal) and Gill (Atlantic) jackets.

Re: Smartphone wind speed

The Beaufort Scale is free... simple to use, and probably WAY more accurate than the microphone wind speed indicator on your smartphone. Spend $0.99 that towards Navionics for your smartphone.

Re: Has anyone had or seen this problem ?

Update: I emailed them again. Nothing.

I have had to tell a total of five prospective customers "no" due to boatbounds failure to follow through.

What a waste of time.

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

It's probably not as much of a mystery as you would think.

Re: How to find electrical load of 20HP diesel

The in-rush can easily exceed 250-500A plus. Continuous average will likely be in the 150-200A range.. Starter motors are very poorly rated and the kW rating is pretty meaningless. These motors are...

Re: Universal M25 Knock?

Two kinds of knock, ignition & bearing. Ignition, kind of like a ping in a gas engine, short & sharp. Bearing, kind of low frequency, longer duration, awful sound. I think if it was a bearing it...
