Re: Replacing Port Lights

Re: Yup, The Harbor Froze AGAIN!

Always amazes me that the news seems surprised when it gets very cold in the winter months. It's what we call winter around here. It was 59 today, and now the temperature's dropping, its starting to...

Re: P.O.'s are Idiots!

WHAT? I thought if you couldn't fix it with a hammer, you had an electrical problem. And screwdrivers are only for taking screws OUT.
I live in a glass "boat" so not throwing rocks. But some good...

Re: Replacing Inboard with Outboard

That's an option but the Admiral probably wouldn't like me replacing her v-berth with fuel tank!

Replacing Inboard with Outboard

You might think I'm nuts but I can't see why it wouldn't work. Maybe I'm missing something. I have a 1970 27' Newport weighing about 6000 lbs with a corresponding 1970 A4 inboard. It starts and runs...
