Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Yes, buying a non refillable disposable extinguisher is an option. If you're ok with chucking them in the garbage and buying a new ones every few years. I prefer to buy better quality safety...

Re: Pimp my dinghy!

Blue underwater lights? Uh-oh! This is how it starts! First you grow envious of the 200hp tenders they drag around. Then if you spend too much time hanging around with them you start to think having...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

I don't think there is any special connections because we have had different companies do it over the years. More likely it is a volume deal. One or two guys over the course of the weekend checking...

Re: foreign customs and warrants

Hmmm....It seems to me that if you have a warrant out for your arrest, posting your intention to flee the country on a forum in which you use your name, have a pic of yourself as your avatars, and...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Lol! Maybe so, but it takes the onus off the volunteers that do the safety inspections, and it satisfies the requirements of the insurance companies. The fact that one's boat gets an annual safety...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Once in a while the fire company that does our safety inspections brings in a fire pan and lets everyone who wants to try putting the fire out. It is a great idea! I think everyone should try it so...

Re: Inspecting fire extinguishers

Like almost all yacht clubs in our area, an annual safety inspection is mandatory and is a condition of mooring both at the home port and using club outstations. Part of those safety inspections is...

Re: Jeanneau SO 379

Yeah there was a SF35 on the market recently, but we are not ready to pull the trigger on a new boat yet. Haven't seen a 39iP, but I did like the 36iP that a local broker had. A bit out of our price...

Re: Jeanneau SO 379

The Sunfast 37 has been at the top of our list for our next boat for some time, but the 379 caught my eye. We checked one out at the boat show, and we were a bit disappointed with it at the dock. It...

Re: Downwind Sailing

It really depends on the make up of the fleet, and the sailing conditions. In a mixed phrf fleet where you have sport boats and furniture boats in the same div, the sport boats with asyms could...

Re: Downwind Sailing

You are right, easing the tack line works well if you can do it, but many people don't have adjustable tack lines.

Re: Downwind Sailing

DDW is my least favorite point of sail. If I don't have a symmetrical spinnaker I won't even bother trying . Running is all about projecting as much area as possible. On old designs like my boat and...

Re: I Equate it to Driving in a Bad Snow Storm!

Well Merit25lover,

I know exactly where you are coming from! I can safely say that I have never reefed my main, and I can think of very few instances where I have raced on a boat with a reefed...

Re: Lets talk about dinghies y'all

We had a nice 10' Whitehall style tender which was beautiful to row, but a hard dinghy is a real P.I.T.A. in my opinion. We ended up getting an 8.5' Aquapro aluminum hulled RIB with a 4hp Yamaha...

Re: Refrigeration questions

There you go then! What's one more fan if you already have a bunch of fans running.

I was speaking more in general terms about built in vs rv units. Any unit would be working hard in the...

Re: Refrigeration questions

Any thermostat would do if you wanted a fan to come on when the temp in a given space reaches a certain temp. "Snap disc" just refers to a particular style of bi metal switch/thermostat. Using the...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

I just had a quick peek at your blog. Your "boat buyers guide" caught my attention:

I find it interesting and somewhat telling that you categorize boats based on fuel consumption!

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

So is Antarctica your next destination? Somehow I doubt that! I don't think I would take either boat there even if I was interested in such a n adventure.

Comparing a Jeanneau to a VOR boat?...

Re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

Clearly the purpose of this thread is to express his disdain for Jeanneaus and boats like them. Calling them "dock queens" implies that if you own one then you must spend all your time tied up...

re: Jeanneau, the worst boat for the money?

I don't see a Jeanneau 51 for 100k, although there is one in Mexico for 160k . I also see a Tayana 54 around the same age for $200k...

When you see an unusually cheap boat you have to look at the...

Re: Refrigeration questions

I agree with Denise; Engel's swing compressor is certainly an innovative design that was way ahead of it's time. (It is actually a pretty old design). At the same time Danfoss has a achieved similar...

You CAN run 134a in an old R12 system with no problems; it has been done many times. However that is something you would do if you already have an old system installed that you were trying to get a...

Re: Choreography To Walk the Jib around the Rigging

Zz4gta's description sounds a lot like how I do it. "Walking " it around is slow and cumbersome. I stand at the mast, and lean towards the sail, arm outstretched waiting for the sail to backwind. As...
