So how much did she charge for a single article?

BTW, the $25 for a CD is a pretty good deal for a whole year's worth of their mags.

Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz Island would be preferred instead of to Anacapa. There are no overnight anchorages at Anacapa. See Brian Fagan's cruiser guide (previously suggested) for more info.

Bill,

Though I have not tried overnighting at SB Island, I would not recommend it in any but the calmest of conditions. There is not really a true anchorage, AFAIK. Will you have someone stand...

In neutral, the trans may not lubricate as it should. Since the input shaft is not turning (only the output shaft) the oil in the trans may not circulate to the bearings.

The Motorola is a 55 amp unit & the Leece-Neville is 90 amps in a marine, not autoversion. They are not equivalent. I believe it will perform every bit as well as a comparable Balmar that costs 4X as...

Why not try a Leece-Neville (Prestolite) 90 amp marine alternator instead? Much cheaper (~$170). You could add a Balmar external regulator if you must. They are very good quality. They make...

Fuses for the charging circuit

My charger (Xantrex Trucharge 20) connects to the battery bank with 8 ga. wire and a 30 amp fuse is specified. The 8 ga. is much too big for a standard in-line fuse holder. Blue Seas (among others)...

I really like my Leece-Neville 90 amp marine alternator. It was very reasonably priced ($167 2 years ago, if I recall correctly). I think that you should be careful to not put too big an...
