Re: Getting Used To New Boat

We did it the quick way.

We bought the boat on 29th May and set sail across the Pacific to New Zealand on 10th June.

By the time we got to New Zealand in early August, we knew an awful lot...

Re: repair yanmar motors

The barrels of a diesel engine immersed in salt water rust enough in a day to make the pistons almost impossible to get out.

Re: Mooring Line

The standard where I live (Port Authority requirement) is the anchor in whatever form that may take, then a heavy duty length of chain then a lighter chain and then the pennant.

Re: Battery voltage rises after use?!

Don't need to be an expert. The diagram clearly shows the panel drawing from one battery. How can it be 24v if it is only drawing from one battery?:confused:

Re: How do you circumnavigate?
