Re: Best spray on / spray off deck cleaner for sailboats

LA Totally Awesome Cleaner - even cleans off spider poop and bird poop stains, both of which are very difficult to remove. Just spray it on, leave it sit for about one minute, wipe it off - it's...

Re: Best Old 35-45 foot liveaboard boat for 2?

For me, it would be difficult to beat the Morgan 41 Out Island. Lots of room, shallow draft, easy to sail, rides like a dream. I have a friend that lives aboard a Morgan 38 sloop in Florida, just him...

Re: LowLowrance HDS 7 Gen2 Chartplotter

I know what you mean about the soldering stuff. I'm pretty old, got my HAM license at age 12 (1952), and back then we scavenged all the old AM radios that were tossed in the trash to get the parts so...

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The only thing I found that worked well was Avon Skin So Soft. I even wiped it on the screens and they never got more than a few inches from it before turning away.

Re: Compass is Off

Most quality, marine compasses have compensating magnets. You can adjust for differences up to about 10 degrees at most, but 180 degrees is out of the question.

I suspect, as others above have...

Re: LowLowrance HDS 7 Gen2 Chartplotter

Anti glare screens won't be of much benefit. The HDS7 uses super-twist screen technology, which enhances the view in direct sunlight. The resolution is incredible and I've never lost the GPS signals...

Re: Battery Terminal Short-Circuit Protection

Today, it was 13.7d, but it was raining and nasty. On a sunny day, direct sunlight, it may climb to 14.2 for a couple hours, then settle down to 13.7 to 13.8 until sundown. Then it drops to 12.4. I...

Absolutely! Gotta have a controller when you run larger solar panels.

Re: Blog about going south on the East Coast ICW to FL?

If my health permits, I'm going down the ICW again in October if you want to convoy with me. I plan to depart the upper Chesapeake Bay October 1st.

all the best,

Re: Memorial Day Weekend

I spent the winter in Marathon Key, Florida. :) One day in February my daughter called and asked what the weather was like. I said "It's about 75 degrees, 20 percent humidity, I'm sitting on the dock...

Re: Harrison House on Tilghman - depth?

You would be hard pressed to get in and out of Buddy Harrison's place. Pretty skinny water at low tide. Tilghman on Chesapeake is much deeper, the last time I checked it was about 7 feet at low tide...

Re: LowLowrance HDS 7 Gen2 Chartplotter

I have the HDS7 on my Morgan 33 Out Island, the hull is really thick, but the hockey puck transducer shoots right through it with no problems whatsoever. You will love the HDS7 - it has more features...

Re: Battery Terminal Short-Circuit Protection

The charging voltage from my solar panel averages about 20 volts. And, yes, I do add water about every two months.

My system is inside a single, very tight compartment, one that holds 4 T-105s...

Re: Knot failures

During my 4 year stint in the US Navy, I was often at the mercy of a chief bosun mate. One of the very first knots we learned to tie was a cleat hitch, which is fairly easy. And, when done properly,...

Re: Deck Painting Project - Topside Paint & Compatible Primers

Actually, in my experience, the Kiwi grip looks great, very easy to apply, but because the non-skid surface is very aggressive it can be rough on bare skin. However, it IS the BEST non skid surface...

Re: solid vs inflatable dinghy

My 10-foot inflatable is horrible to row on a windy day, wet riding in the slightest chop, and too big to roll up and stow below. It gets rolled up and stored on the foredeck. I tried out a hard...

Re: Battery Terminal Short-Circuit Protection

Never had a problem with the grill not getting hot enough - most of the time it's too hot. This usually results in burgers and bratwurst that are nearly blackened on the outside, and not sufficiently...

Re: Battery Terminal Short-Circuit Protection

For flooded cell batteries, having the batteries in a box makes it so the fumes from charging destroy the terminals. I use a heavy coating of silicone grease to protect the terminals, but eventually,...
