Re: Your first boat

I haven't bought a boat using borrowed money (which might be a good idea if the boat saved you money, so make sure that you can dock/anchor for very little and have a good access to land), but I have...

Re: Battery water level

As mitchbrown says. My guess is that both sets of your house batteries are charged together. Being of different make and likely also different age, they might need slightly different charging...

You will not be able to motor in any seas as the motor will get swamped on a regular basis. Only in calms or harbours. You can think about a cockpit well (Atom Voyages - Outboard motor well for a...

Sculling oar can do marvels once you master it, but you won't get much speed out of it. Pair of sweeps are easier to handle, but are less useful in close quarters, as Jeff points out above.
