Re: Fisheries Supply in Seattle, WA

I've done business for years (decades?) with Fisheries, never had anything but good experiences. I mostly just order over the phone on my account (commercial) and have stuff shipped so really can't...

Re: How frequently Do You Change Your Raw Water Impeller?

No puller (yet). I use right angle needle nose pliers and a block of wood against the flange for leverage.

Re: How frequently Do You Change Your Raw Water Impeller?

If you are going to the trouble of inspecting it (or even if you don't inspect and you just worry about it), why not just replace it, it's easy and cheap? An ounce of prevention...

Re: Radar - what to look for

I've had several Furuno radars and currently have one older Furuno 4kw unit and a new 4kw Garmin HD (on different boats). The Garmin is displayed on a 6212 display and is fairly easy to set up and...

Re: Protecting Tools

Spray all of them down with Boeshield once a year and you won't have any rust, corrosion, etc. I just keep them in a canvas bag with no problems (other than tape measures, they are a problem). ...

Re: I hate boats...

I suggested the raw water pump seal but Med said there was a gap on the shaft between the pump and the seal to the block so any sea water would leak out the back of the pump before it got in the...

Re: I hate boats...

Med- not familiar with your engine so this may not apply but some raw water pumps are gear driven and the seal can fail on the engine side and allow water in. Just a thought, but yours is probably...

Re: I hate boats...

Sorry to hear of the engine problems Med. I'm guessing that the oil cooler(s) came apart internally due to vibration during the trip and when you ran it for a few minutes it pumped sea water into...

Re: Cabin comfort when motoring

If I didn't have a pilothouse with excellent visibility from the salon I would definitely have a full cockpit enclosure so I wouldn't be stuck in the cockpit with my soggy foulies on by myself. ...

Re: Give AIS a rest

Re: Volvo Engines

If/when we re-power it won't be with a new Volvo, but in general I think the negative reputation of the older engines is undeserved. Consider the fact that there are thousands of older Volvos still...

Re: What license should I pursue?

You don't "need" to have time on a 50t boat to get your license, they will just adjust your tonnage based on what you have time on. I just had time (self documented) on our 34' and smaller sailboats...

Re: Alaska - Canada Inside Passage suggestions?

I haven't done it (yet) in the sailboat, just a fishing boat, and we didn't stop to anchor so I can't make any recommendations north of the Broughtons. Not sure where you anchor in Granville Ch. and...

Re: Solo Climbing the Mast- Block and Tackle

Multi- see zz's and goats posts about using ascenders and a gri gri (and a comfortable big wall harness). Takes some work to get up there but this is a good way to do it.

Re: Hydraulic steering for sailboat

I think the reference to "slow" might be that most hydraulic helm pumps require 5 full turns lock to lock vs. mechanical steering norm of 2.

Re: Hydraulic steering for sailboat

As Jack said there is almost no feedback with hydraulic steering. The plus is that there are no cables/chains to route which makes installation relatively easy and installation of a below deck...

Re: Color radar? What's that?

You don't need radar, you have a sauna :-))

I'm no authority, but I think all color radar gives you is something other than a black background with green targets. At least that's all my Garmin...
