Re: Airmail or RMS Express

My setup is an M802 with a Pactor 4 modem. Airmail and RMS Express are both set up to control the radio frequency remotely.

Re: Airmail or RMS Express

The newest version of Airmail is 3.5
RMS Express leaves my radio (M802) in "remote" mode even after the program is shut down. It requires a power cycle to make the radio usable again.

Re: sous vide cooking

It just amazes me how much misinformation is spouted in this thread!

Re: Mooring pendants

True but how often will you go out if each trip to the boat together with setting up the dinghy and later stowing it will cost you somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 - 45 minutes each way ?

Re: Mooring pendants

Looking pretty nice! Hope it holds up in a blow.
BTW, how are you going to get to your boat or where will you park your dinghy?

Re: Chocks on the bow

The anchor roller is generally not meant for heavy loads. Sure, it can be abused as such but in reality it shouldn't have any direct loads on it other than raising or lowering the anchor.
You should...

A couple of thoughts Paul ....
#1, if I recall correctly, there was a recent (don't recall if it was this winter or last) blow that registered around 40 knts at my slip. There is a significant...

Re: West Marine pulling out of Canada

I have been able to avoid West Marine for quite a while now. I source from local merchants and via the internet. I don't think that WM's heart was ever really into the Canadian market. You can walk...

Re: DIY - discussion on building a DIY hookah diving compressor

Guys, you are being combative here. The facts are simple - it was mentioned that the diving depth was to be 2 to 3 meters max. It is irrelavant how long the hose is because diving depth was...

Re: Hot water problem

Although hot water can be made by pushing the coolant through the heat exchanger in the hot water tank, this is by no means the only method. In my boat the engine coolant circulates through a heat...

Re: Liveaboard woman alone

It is rare in the PNW to find a "good" internet connection via wifi. I have no clue what it's like in the east. That might mean you do your work in a STarbucks or...

Re: Fuel leak

There are many many possibilities but assuming the engine starts up quickly when warm, even after having been stopped for an hour, I would look at the glow plugs. How long do you activate the glow...

Re: Fuel leak

Nothing contradictory there.
The return line usually is the bleed from the injectors and you can do anything you want with that - you could run it into an open bucket and it won't make a difference....

Re: Fuel leak

Especially a diesel engine .... because if you have leak in the suction line you will get air into the fuel system and nothing causes more weird issues on a diesel than a tiny bit of air. If you get...

Re: Fuel leak

That should not affect starting in any way. If it was the main fuel line you would have all kinds of engine issues and not just hard starting when cold.

Re: Masthead spinnaker bail, could this work?

It will not hold up! I would build an aluminum assembly that spreads the load between the current attachment point and the flat top of the masthead.
