Re: West Marine pulling out of Canada

I have been able to avoid West Marine for quite a while now. I source from local merchants and via the internet. I don't think that WM's heart was ever really into the Canadian market. You can walk...

Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

Guys, you are being combative here. The facts are simple - it was mentioned that the diving depth was to be 2 to 3 meters max. It is irrelavant how long the hose is because diving depth was...

Re: Hot water problem

Although hot water can be made by pushing the coolant through the heat exchanger in the hot water tank, this is by no means the only method. In my boat the engine coolant circulates through a heat...

Re: in mast furling issue

I have exactly the same problem on occasion (same boat). I fix it by alternating between inhaul and outhaul as Jackdale suggested. I believe it is caused by multiple issues - one being that it wasn't...

Re: Long-Range Wifi Installation

While I afree that technically there are a few hickups, I think it is better to have a video than not have a video. Yes you can get into more detail about cables to use, output power etc etc but...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

A couple of things to consider:
It is rare in the PNW to find a "good" internet connection via wifi. I have no clue what it's like in the east. That might mean you do your work in a STarbucks or...

Re: Fuel leak

There are many many possibilities but assuming the engine starts up quickly when warm, even after having been stopped for an hour, I would look at the glow plugs. How long do you activate the glow...

Re: Fuel leak

Nothing contradictory there.
The return line usually is the bleed from the injectors and you can do anything you want with that - you could run it into an open bucket and it won't make a difference....

Re: Fuel leak

Especially a diesel engine .... because if you have leak in the suction line you will get air into the fuel system and nothing causes more weird issues on a diesel than a tiny bit of air. If you get...

Re: Fuel leak

That should not affect starting in any way. If it was the main fuel line you would have all kinds of engine issues and not just hard starting when cold.

Re: How do you fold the headsail underway?

Just picked up my genoa from the sailmakers after they did some maintenance - the sail was folded VERY nicely but they disagree with your idea of folding the luff onto itself. The sailmaker folded...

Re: New Ideas for using water heads?

Re: Sailing Dog's Boat Destroyed By Fire

A general note of caution: a drying type of oil that remains in a bunched up rag can cause a fire through self ignition. I am not saying this is what happened here but rather that people should be...

Re: Masthead spinnaker bail, could this work?

It will not hold up! I would build an aluminum assembly that spreads the load between the current attachment point and the flat top of the masthead.

Re: Sewing machine corner

Re: Good mail order place for battery cables?

Maine Sail has an excellent writeup on how to make battery cables. In it he has references to some sources that he feels are excellent. I believe GenuineDealz.com is who he suggests for cables.

Re: Winch maintenance Q, what nut is this?

Generally I would assume that this bolt would be the same configuration as the other bolts you already removed.
There is a tamper proof bolt head that has 3 slots that are off center and don't meet...

Re: Propeller cage

I vote for an underwater sickle mower, preferrably bow mounted with a sensor that automatically deploys it when a crab/lobster/shrimp pod is detected.

Re: Aftermarket Antenna for Raymarine Chartplotter??

One thing to watch for is how you connect to the chart plotter. I have an E80 plotter and a Raymarine GPS unit that talks to the chart plotter via sealink (I think).

Re: What do I do if someone anchors too close?

It makes no difference if you have insurance or not, it will just take a bit more effort.
You have a police report and witnesses, it's not too late!
