Re: vetus 3.10 Heat Exchanger

Did you contact the good folks at Vetus USA? I have the same engine and they send me parts, albeit rather slowly.

Re: Don't have to be rich to sail

The only thing better than owning a boat is having a good friend with a boat. Many boat owners who sail a lot need crew and we count on friends for that. With that said, if you are a decent person...

Re: Even bad choices at the slip can kill you

I believe that is a solid manslaughter case. There was clearly no malicious intent (that we know of, did she rob him?), but there is culpability. I think that generally, drug etiquette requires one...

Re: older prpopane tank adapters

Trust me when i tell you this- ditch the old tank and buy a new one. I don't know which state you are in, but here in California, if you don't have an OPD valve they won't fill it and some of the old...

Re: Vetus M309 Questions...

Hey, Joe. I have a Vetus 3.10, which is very similar to the 3.09. In my case, yes, it did replace an Atomic. It is a three cylinder 25 HP engine. Parts are not impossible to come by, but often they...

Re: Crewed for the first time yesterday - wow!

Paul- you raced a whole season with no pads? Ouch! After one race, I bought volleyball knee pads. One of the newbies on my crew keeps telling me she wants to wear soccer shin/knee pads. I have nice...

Re: I owe the PO a beer

While we're on the subject of POs, my boat has a long history and my immediate PO basically lived aboard for a year and upgraded nothing. His PO owned and raced her for 5 years. THAT'S the PO I want...

Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

Re: Olympians to sail in poo

Re: Looking for a new headsail...cruising laminate? Dacron?

Re: Why All the Absurd Circumnavigation Threads?

Re: Setting a trysail at anchor

Is that also known as a flopper stopper? I have lines in a bag for that, but don't know what it's for.
