I concur with pretty much all the replies, especially about not being in a hurry to complete you plan. Your plan is a good one though, to which I would add steps between 1 and 2. Mainly do some day...

We've all been there! Getting the 'feel' of any boat comes with experience. So what if onlookers were amused. By the end of summer, you will be the one chuckling at the newbies. My advice to all new...

As to being on a cat, the feeling of speed is enhanced and you will get wet. I have rented cats a few times on vacation, and they are fun to handle. Good idea to get a crew spot. Once you like it,...

The first place I would start would be to rebuild the head. As previous posts indicate, some are better to rebuild than others are. My head is a Raritan (original equipment, 1984). I have rebuilt it...

I agree with Eleanor in the 5 short blasts to indicate a potential danger. While the Laser skipper may not have done anything differently this time, perhaps the thrill of "just made it" can help...

I agree with most responders that the problem is likely condensation. We sleep in the V-berth and 99% of the time keep the V-berth hatch opened. In cold weather, we only crack it a bit but still...

Workhorses

I agree with DrB. These little Yanmar engines are workhorses. A fog-bound, no-wind trip from Ventura to Redondo Beach was a power only situation. It took us 14 hours, motoring all the way. Check all...

Good Hunting!

All the previous replies seem to be valid tips for remote owners to visit their boat for extended periods. Of course, if the marina has a hard-line policy against extended stays you would be wise to...
