Re: First and last sailing adventure ends with pirate attack

I think the couple seems to have taken the wrong message away from their experience. They say they'll never sail again, but are excited for a trip back to that country.

Here's what the gov't of...

Re: Lets get some good sunrise/sunset pictures....

Not as magnificent as many of the others, but figured I would share. This was just pre-dawn on our (wife and I) first overnight passage. No wind to speak of, we were damp and cold from the dew and...

Re: Toerails replaced with "StarBoard"?

From the pictures, it looks like it's being used more or less just for cosmetic reasons to hide the marks where the original toerail would have been. If all those fittings (stanchions, blocks,...

Re: Magma marine grill recommendations

I also like the magma kettle grill. Bought mine last year, and have found that it's never blown out. (Had an old log style force 10 before this one, and it wasn't so good in the wind.)

Re: Lake Michigan and Huron levels historic low

When I hear about stuff like this, I can't help but think about the Aral Sea.

Different circumstances, but still a bit scary.

Re: Opinions and thoughts on purchase

Regarding your handheld VHF + Handheld GPS, I'd suggest you could combine the two. There are newer handheld VHF radios with in-built GPS receivers. This means you have a DSC VHF in your hand, which...

Re: Are we elitists?

I never bothered with an introductory thread myself (I don't think?), though to be honest, I'm more of a listener, and generally speak up if something is of particular interest to me.

Any time...

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 - High pressure fuel pump not pumping

Figured I may as well update this. I had one of the yard guys come check out the engine to try to start it. He took all of about 15 minutes to start the engine, saying he was "Just finishing a job...

Re: Is a marine survey really worth it for an inexpensive boat?

I had a Tanzer 22 for 3 years which I never had surveyed. Towards the end, I had to switch insurance companies, because they suddenly required a survey for the boat, which I had no intention of...

Re: Yanmar 2QM15 - High pressure fuel pump not pumping

Thanks for the replies. I think it is properly shimmed. We re-used the shim materials so that shouldn't have changed at all. I checked and rechecked what I'd done with the governor, referencing the...

Yanmar 2QM15 - High pressure fuel pump not pumping


Wondering if anyone might have a thought on this. I've got a Yanmar 2QM15 from the early 80's. Its sat for about 2 decades unused, and the previous owner began a rebuild of it, before I got...

Re: Terrifying Spencer 42' - Should I buy?

That IS a scary boat. I'm not one to shy away from a boatload of work, but that looks like it'd not be worth the price, at any price, if you actually wanted to go sailing in something any time soon....

Don't ask less experienced crew to do something you are not yet comfortable doing yourself.

Re: Racing yacht's near-miss with large whale captured on video

Wow, that guy had a good eye and crazy reaction time. Good on them, though I suppose it was less out of concern for the whale, and moreso the integrity of the boat.

Re: Selling a boat - an emotional experience

I sold my first keelboat last summer, since the fiancee and I had decided to move up to a larger boat. We had two of our best evening sails on her while she was up for sale. The day we'd agreed upon...

Re: How many young people (say 35 or under)out there

I'm 23, and have a Tanzer 8.5. Bought my first "real" boat (Tanzer 22) at the age of 19.

My fiancee and I are definitely the youngest ones at our yacht club, but we do find we have a lot in common...

Re: Stressful launch and it isn`t over yet!

Wow, that is crazy! I'm pretty nervous anticipating my launch in a couple of months. Engine is presently sitting in the salon as my fiancee and I work to replace the bunks, mounts, stuffingbox,...

Re: looking for an inexpensive pocket cruiser

The Tanzer 22 gets my vote. There are bunches of them out there, and they also have a pretty active group over on yahoo groups. Pretty well any specific maintenance task or bit of advice you could...
