Re: Morgan 41 Out Island and Blue Water

Yea, our plans are to tour the South Pacific. The finishing touches are that our arch will be installed this week, along with the cabinet maker finishing his work and the cutlass being replaced. ...

Re: Morgan 41 Out Island and Blue Water

I've bought that movie, and thanks for the suggestion. I think you're right about most Morgans.

Re: Morgan 41 OI stability

Read Earl Hinz account of sailing his OI over 18,000 NM around the South Pacific. That was one of our motivations for buying one.

Re: Buying a New Stove

First, thanks to all for the great responses!

After having a Force 10 on our 36 footer, and reading more about the new ones, we've decided on the Force 10 three burner. I just ordered one from WM...

Re: Buying a New Stove

The problem we have with CNG is two-fold. It isn't nearly as available elsewhere in the world, and there is no conversion kit for our old stove.

There are a few other peccadilloes, too. CNG...

Buying a New Stove

We're going to replace the old CNG stove in our Morgan with a new LPG stove. We've been looking at the Force 10 3 burner, but I've seen some negative reviews about it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Guess all logic has left us. Some of you bend the opinions here to fit your twisted mentality. Some of you seem to have an agenda, and you try to bend your opinions to fit that. Sadly so.

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

"vague"? I posted an explicit article, but you think it is vague. Well, you can lead people to the knowledge well, but you can't make them drink.

At any rate, we do agree on the West Marine...

Re: Canning Your Food

We canned butter, too. Need to do a view about that. The butter came out really good, and should last for months to years. Great way to store things. The bacon came out crumbly, but tasted like...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Got it. You have an interpretation of my post, based on what you think is in my mind as to why I took this action, then you called me lazy.

I was brought up that a man needs to own his actions,...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

You interpreted my responses as an attempt to intimidate you? Wow.. Issues much?

Now, if you can just quit giving legal opinions, I think we can carry on.

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Anyone can have an opinion and state it as they wish. Anyone can make a legal assessment. When you do so without a license and the expertise, you stand the possibility of hurting others. That's...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

I did. We've dealt with this sort of thing before between our businesses. People often spout off about things they have no expertise in. In many cases it isn't much of an issue, but in the legal...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

I would hope that you have not caused anyone else here to make a poor decision based on your legal opinions, being that you're not licensed to practice law.

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

I partly agree with you, but when you state that it is "mainly on the buyer" to know the product ID, it is also legally binding for the corporation to accurately represent what they are selling. Once...

Re: Our West Marine Debacle

Got it. Just wondering, as you seem to be giving a legal opinion without a license. Might just be illegal for you to do so.

Sadly I have struck a chord with some of the fanboys here. Either I am wrong because I stood up for blatant false advertising, or I somehow attempted to perpetrate a fraud against West Marine.

No, I did not end up the victim. Take a look at the original ad. It did not state that the A78 was not a true A78, which according to Raymarine, has WiFi. It was false advertising and West Marine...
