Re: This PFD could have killed me!

But you sail in Wisconsin!

Try wearing a Type III in August on the Chesapeake or further south. I don't think many people would do that on a regular basis.

And, compared to not wearing a vest...

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

No, I don't think PFDs come with expiration dates. And, honestly, I don't think it would make sense. A vest used daily in a challenging environment suffers much more than one sitting in a drawer as a...

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

Stearns. About 10 years old, maybe 12. Have been on the boat all of these years, summer and winter.

So, I certainly got my money's worth out of them, no complaint there.

Re: This PFD could have killed me!

Who says it is one or the other? All my inflatable PFDs have integrated harnesses. And I do use them in conditions when I feel it is warranted. The tether is always on the PFD, so clipping in just...

Exclamation This PFD could have killed me!

Starting the new season, I thought it would be a good idea to test the inflatable PFDs. So, I took them home and inflated them through the oral inflator.

Big 'Oh shite' moment: One of them, the...

Re: Those new fangled Mantus Anchors..Bought One...Why

Hm, don't know what happened with the hook you got. I bought their chain hook, in stainless steel, and it is beautifully designed and made.

They even sent me their locking plastic piece, which...

Re: Marine multi-pole connector?

Good point. It, indeed, took me some time (an hour at least) to figure out all the connections. This will make it a bit less painful.

Marine multi-pole connector?

A few months ago, I installed a new VHF radio, a SH GX2000 (see this long thread why: http://www.sailnet.com/forums/electronics/164993-ais-should-i-buy.html). The darned thing has a dozen wires...

Re: Does anyone have false alarms on Standard Horizon GX2000 (and possibly other GX2x

Well, given the (absence of) response, there does not seem to be an epidemic of false alarms. Perhaps Barry is right and I got an outlier. Hopefully the replacement will work flawlessly.

Re: Does anyone have false alarms on Standard Horizon GX2000 (and possibly other GX2x

That would definitely be the preferred outcome, that they send me a new radio and everything works. But I cannot think of a hardware problem that would result in a wrong computation. I can think of...

Angry Does anyone have false alarms on Standard Horizon GX2000 (and possibly other GX2xxx)?

There is a long thread in this forum about my search for the perfect AIS (http://www.sailnet.com/forums/electronics/164993-ais-should-i-buy-2.html). Thanks to the helpful contributions of several...

Re: Which AIS should I buy?

OK, update: The problem persists. I have documented it and the radio is currently at Standard Horizon/Yaesu. They will replace it but I am afraid that will not solve the problem. I will start a new...

Re: Epoxy in coldish weather?

Just to be sure: For epoxy, you may want to change the TYPE of hardener, but never the AMOUNT of hardener. To speed up the process you can play with the hardener/resin ratio with polyester resin but...

Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor

No one doubts that the sailboat was in the wrong, he should have moved in that situation. That does not give the captain of the ship the right to kill him when there is an alternative, even involving...

Re: Recreational Sailboat vs. Tugboat with Barge: Who Has the Right of Way? - See mor

Good story but I find it hard to believe. This would be pre-meditated murder and more than a fine would have had to be paid.

Re: Recommendations for an anchor washdown pump

The answer is no. I have a Lavac and I did exactly that, Tee-ing my washdown pump into the sink drain which is also the toilet inlet. Did not even think it might be a problem (perhaps I should have)...
