Exhaust Through Hull

Try www.hamiltonmarine.com. If they don''t have it, they can get it. West Marine has gone berserk with prices. I''ll never buy from them again. I was looking at an overhead electronics box for my...

I bought a boat in 1992 with a Volvo MD2B 28hp diesel (a 1970 engine). It looked like a ball of rust. I took the time to figure the engine out, clean it, determine it might function, strip it down...

Radio Check

I''m pretty sure 16 is the hailing/emergency channel. If not, how would you ever contact anyone, since everyone is SUPPOSED to be monitoring 16? Hail and switch. Hail for radio check, "anyone",...

Winch replacement

And, unless you have Anderson Winches to begin with, skip them. They make their handles so you can''t cross winches on a boat. The "short" handles are cheesy and overpriced, and have a pain in the...

26'''' - 28'''' bareboat USVI

I''m thinking about it. See Market Survey post. I''ve got access, and boats, but am justifiably leery. Have to shoulder the weight of hurricane season, insurances and exhorbitant boatyard costs.

Market Survey - Lower Priced Charters on Refitted Boats?

I''ve completely re-rigged and idiot proofed a Bristol 35 Yawl and a Pearson 10M. I might get another 10M. I''m considering, but not committing, chartering these out at something like half of what...

MacGregor 26: to praise or bash

Definitely bash. I believe the Macgregor was one of the first boats I looked at buying in the 1980''s. I sailed Hobies and needed room for family. I crawled through dozens and dozens of boats over...

I Want to buy Pearson 323 and sell Pearson 365

There''s a pretty good looking 323 on the dock at Independent Boatyard is St. Thomas. Good place to start a cruise, even if you''re just running downwind back home through the Bahamas. KW
