Cruising budget????

bugged,

I think so much depends on where you plan to stay and eat most of the time. If on the hook and you cook a lot, 500-700 /mo. might do. If you stay in marinas and eat in restaurants a lot,...

OMC Saildrives

a/c necessary

gto2

I guess it depends on where south is and what time of year. In the trades, AC is not necessary when at anchor. At the dock - yes. Personally, I would want to be out of there by July if...

I own a 43'' Irwin center cockpit. I believe the 38 is a smaller version of it. You mentioned a double ender. I have never known the Irwin 38 CC to be a double ender. Is the boat you are locking...

tired of cleaning my teak

I agree with the Sikkens Cetol comment. I started using it in spring 2000. If it is done right initially, a washing with soap and water and one or two maintenance coats a year is all you need. My...

Cooling pump blues

sanuni,

Change the impeller ! If it doesn''t solve the problem, now you have a spare. Not a bad thing.

duffyM,

I just saw an add in one of the sailing mags. It looked to me that Pocketmail might be selling a new unit themselves. It looks very much like the Sharp unit.

Charter Vs. Buying

davejam,
I like BigRed''s attitude, but here''s my 2 cents. At, say, $2000. per week, a 3-4 month cruise would cost you $25,000. to $32,000. I would think you could buy a boat in the $75,000....

Great that you want a significant boat, but I agree with Jeff and VIEXILE. Charter boats get a lot of hard use, sometimes from not to careful charterers. They also are designed and laid...
