Re: Available ready and need the help

Mr. Smith,
Life is divided up into two categories. One the reality and two: the dream. While you appear to be from the later I am not here to judge you.
I will not break into the dialog of what...

Re: help needed

Must be a "South Islander" if not a sailor. I have plenty of experience. Know how to sail and how much work is involved not just the (pretty picture of paradise).

Re: Thoughts on Nicro vs. Sunforce solar vents?

No fan made is better than the ones being marketed from China at the moment. I shopped around and saw how far behind the manufactures in the marine market are in vents, solar and otherwise.

Re: Nicro Solar Vents dying on me

BTW, the old fan worked NOT at all and when I heard for the first time -the one that did I was depressed.
I already ordered fans that were far superior to this rink-a-dink... Any computer fan is at...

Re: Thoughts on Nicro vs. Sunforce solar vents?

Not a Rosie picture you paint but now they don't sound so slick as before. There's a gun oil I was told that is the best.
So why do sturgeons like it so much if it's a synthetic?

Re: Nicro Solar Vents dying on me

Defender sent me two "Day & Night" vents but they appear of different makes. One is Nicro and appears to have an older box. The newer one is Marinco but both appear to be from the same manufacture. ...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

The cement is in good shape in mine because there has yet to be any salt in the hull.
Money is not...

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

I'm not sure what the point of all this is but then this whole blog seems to teeter between those who own Rawsos and those who want to warn people away from them.

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

It is not a necessity to be accepted as a popular boat. The Rawson 30+2 are varied in the use of ply in their hulls for stiffness but they had little of it in the early works like I have.

Re: Rawson 30- A Blue Water Cruiser?

The Rawson is no race boat and it's tracking keel is no capable close quarter maneuverer. You don't get all things in one package. You might get a boat not so good at any task if you don't commit to...
