I have a (new to me) Autohelm 4000+ and I am missing the hardware to mount it to the wheel and also the pin (not sure of correct name) that mounts to the pedestal that locks the motor housing in...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

I am 35 years old and known as "The Kid" at my Yacht Club. I am the youngest boat owner there by at least 10-15 years. My wife is 29 and is by far the youngest member of the club. We don't mind being...

Re: Advice From Young Punks

If you can, wait for the GoPro 4. The specs are out of this world. I really want to get one just to do underwater inspections without getting cold and wet. haha.

This is probably the coolest thing...

Re: sailed once with my uncle

Run as fast and as far as you can unless you have a minimum $150K sitting around and can do the work yourself. Just to store it on the hard and do nothing with it would cost $6K+ a year. I can't even...

Congrats! Yes, I usually remove all of that stuff as it does make it easier (and safer.)

Re: Lowering the mast on a Cat 22 with auto fulrer?

The procedure I use is similar to what you wrote. I just didn't think we needed to write a novel. The OP has researched it an seemed to know the details. I am standing in the cockpit while I ease out...

Re: Lowering the mast on a Cat 22 with auto fulrer?

I also had a Catalina 22 with the Furlex. It really isn't any different. For me I would take the main halyard and attach it at the front cleat. I had quick releases and would remove the two front...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

I am like your husband. Once bitten by the Ercison bug it is hard to get anything else. They are beautiful.

Re: Learning Boat: San Juan 21 vs Catalina 22 vs ???

The last couple posts did bring up something I forgot to mention. Make sure the trailer is in good shape. The first month I had my C22 I had 3 tire blowouts. After looking into it further I realized...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Very true. Just be patient and look at a lot of boats. There are significantly more boats out there than buyers so deals are a plenty!

Re: Learning Boat: San Juan 21 vs Catalina 22 vs ???

I am completely mystified how it can take an hour or two to rig a Catalina 22. What in the world are you doing that takes so long? Like I said, I can do it in 30 min or less by myself and about 20...

Re: Learning Boat: San Juan 21 vs Catalina 22 vs ???

I have no experience with the SJ21 but I had a C22 and loved it. It was my first "real" boat. I built a gin pole with a winch for about $50 and could step the mast single-handed. I only disconnected...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

P.S. I must confess, my opinion is biased. I am an Ericson owner with an Atomic 4 and I love them both. The old Ericsons really turn heads at the Yacht club. I can't tell you how many compliments I...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

I can say that after having a diesel and the atomic 4, I would not go back to diesel. The A-4 is one of the smoothest engines you can get and darn near bullet proof. But in the unfortunate event that...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

I have never had a situation where I needed the motor running ASAP. The issue with the exploding gas is really over-hyped and a lot of people have an irrational fear of gas. Yes, it does happen and...

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

The atomic 4 is a fantastic engine. Very reliable and easy to work on. They are also very common so it isn't too hard to find someone to work on it if you aren't handy yourself. I have an Ericson E32...

Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?

It isn't easy but on lower end boats in the 17-25' range it can be done. I have doubled tripled my money on most of my project boats. The key is to buy it right in the first place. Dave Ramsey always...

That is the most likely explanation. Either that or extreme desperation.

Re: Urgent shaft seal question

Don't even think about risking it (unless you don't really like your boat.) I had my shaft back out and let me tell you, it is a shocking amount of water that comes blasting in. A short haul for me...

Re: Re-build cost if you have just the hull

An arm, a leg and probably a kidney. That is a very hard question to answer because there are too many variables. If you do a quality job it will always cost more than if you went out and bought a...
