Re: Generator Etiquette

So people either: a) don't mind somebody disturbing the anchorage with noise and smoke, or else, b) they're "pretentious boat snobs"? I think there might be other possibilities.
Entire anchorages...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

There's a saying: 'Never wear a hat that has more personality than you do'.
Applies to flags.
But if you really, really like pirate flags--after all, they're a nice, simple graphic and go well...

Re: Stinky Foul Weather Gear

Why toss it till you try? The "chemicals" are basically waterproofing that you can buy in a spray can. (Practical Sailor reviewed them recently, by the way.) You can find out if they're still...

Re: Is flying a pirate flag lame?

Wow. I posted early in this thread in response to the original question: is flying a pirate flag "lame"? I must have been in an irritable mood. I said, "yes" and half the deep-thinkers on the...

Not sure of the point you're making, white74. But I think we are agreeing.

Re: Generator Etiquette

Getting there first gives you the right to occupy your swinging circle. Not to invent new rights for yourself, such as to disturb the whole anchorage with your stereo or loud generator.

Re: Stinky Foul Weather Gear

Probably depends entirely on what the odor is. I bought a rug once that had cat urine odor which is notoriously hard to get rid of. A product called "Anti Icky Poo" (I know, dumb name) got rid of it...

Re: Sailnet Suggestion Box

Apparently I was, DRFarron. Thanks.
Still totally counter-intuitive, I think. I guess you're supposed to figure out that you're supposed to copy the text under the little TV commercial into the box....

Re: Sailnet Suggestion Box

What the hell is the new human verification thing all about on the search page???? It makes no sense. What is "Swiffer effect" supposed to mean to anybody?
Go back to the old number/letter graphic. ...

Re: What can/should I do while repacking my stuffing box?

In the occasional quiet intervals between the above tasks, maybe close your eyes and visualize a dripless shaft seal.
Kidding aside, I was just rooting around the web for a manual for the one that...

Re: Can I run my anchor roller bail idea by you...

Here's a nice little DIY solution if you need a bail:

Re: Can I run my anchor roller bail idea by you...

Just use a pin when anchored. Never thought of that. It would simplify things. The hole in my CQR is for a trip line or float and doesn't line up with anything, but I have a short lanyard on it to...

Re: Can I run my anchor roller bail idea by you...

Faster, I'd go with a pin but the holes aren't high enough--the pin wouldn't clear the anchor. I need a loop of some sort. I don't have a problem with the width, though.
Intuitively, it seems...

Re: Can I run my anchor roller bail idea by you...

Those are all good points. I have a 35# CQR and no windlass, and the anchor shank is too high to fit under a straight pin. As Scotty says, without a bail the rode can jump out of the channel, and I...

My twin anchor roller tracks are missing their bails and I want to replace them.
I anticipate needing to remove a bail if I ever want to change the ground tackle in one of the rollers. That would...

Re: Drilling out bungs

I've found the screw trick to work well in the course of pulling dozens of bungs. Drill a pilot hole about the center with a 3/32" or smaller bit, then drive a coarse-thread drywall screw in slowly,...

Re: Replacing faucets - how to connect water hose?

Or any plumbing supply. Hand the faucet and a piece of hose to the guy at the counter and he'll dig up the parts to connect them. Should be easy. I did it for my galley and wash basin.
