Re: bilge pumps in series, ok?

York,
You probably are right. I have a mast boot so the leak is pretty much limited to the track. If someone made a rubber 'thingy' that plugged the sail track that would be convenient. I don't...

Re: bilge pumps in series, ok?

Ok, Thanks.

I was wondering about check valves, but was not sure how many were needed, but it makes sense that the Jabsco has an output check valve already. It looks like the Rule needs a...

bilge pumps in series, ok?

The bilge on our boat collects water from rain down the sailtrack, nothing serious but it does fill up one isolated bilge compartment when we get a good soaking. I have a Jabsco belt driven...

Re: Lifting Keel Yachts

BobPerry,
I know of one in the PNW and of 4 here on the east coast, I am not sure where the other 2 are. One of the 7 Clearwater 35's has circumnavigated, from my understanding, which says almost...

Re: advice for first solo, overnight, offshore

BristolBob,
When are you going? Is your purpose to do it singlehanded? If not there may be people here in Oriental that would go along for the fun of it.

Re: Autopilot Install

Probably too late to help, but I mounted mine at the helm in a pod. I tapped into the power for my radio, but still had to run a line to the main unit which is in the back of one of the aft berths....

Re: Singlehanding Pedestal Steering

BeeJ;
Thanks, we really like her. We kept the boat in the Sassafrass one summer and it was great to be able to travel around the Bay. We lived in NJ at the time and it was a 2 hr drive down to the...

epoxy an underwater crack

First a disclaimer;
the crack is not on my boat, but in our hot tub! I just figure that one of the many available boat epoxies would be best to seal this crack (which is under about 10 inches of...

Re: Battery death

Re: Battery death

Shawn,
I agree, another set of vented batteries is fine by me. The question is how do I recognize when batteries need replacment? Is what I am seeing that indication? Did I wait too long? Is...

Re: How to use marine battery posts?

And as you can see from Maine Sails pictures you should NOT use the wing nuts that sometimes come with the secondary battery connections. I was dinged by my insurance survey for having wing nuts and...
