Re: picking a new motor for the job!

Extra long shaft tohatsu 9.8 fits the boat really well. Makes 6 kts with a little throttle to spare. If you are planning to do a lot of motoring I wouldn't go too much less than the 9.9. ...

Re: Flat glass into curved frames Pearson 26

Are you talking about the forward approximately 6"x14" smaller portlights? Looking at mine I really don't see any serious curvature. It all looks pretty flat. I would just screw away.

Re: 1989 Hunter 40 - A million questions.

I didn't have a nice dry spot for the multiplexer so I put it in its own little enclosure. May have snuck power for it off my N2K backbone.....

Re: PFD with harness

I think your point should be that the tether is the problematic item, not the pfd and harness.

Re: Genaker Thoughts

A sym kite on a 30 footer shouldn't be too difficult to handle. Tweakers are your friend. Plus how are you ever going to broach if you don't throw up a kite?

Re: Help with Barient 10's?

The guts should be pretty much the same, and service procedures for a single speed winch are pretty much the same across the board once you get them apart. Either the clip around the shaft or a...

I'm not telling anybody to do anything, I'm just suggesting this level of paranoia is absurd and if you can't handle a little risk maybe having a boat is a bad idea. Maybe stick to stuffed...

Re: safe cooking

A professionally installed propane system will not leave your boat burned up at the marina.
Throw a couple of rusted out 1# bombs in the lazerette and you might have a different outcome.
