Re: BVI May 2015

No idea. I don't think it really makes a difference. I suppose the winds and the weather might help make the decision.

Re: BVI May 2015

I was a newb to sailing, so it was all new for me, it was in March of 2012. We were chartering a 50ft Cyclades. The first day out front from Jost to Marina Cay was OK, but after leaving Marina Cay...

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 45 owner's manual

Have no problem attaching links, but the files are on my computer. I can email them if you send a Private Message. I don't think there is a facility to upload large PDF files here.

Re: Beneteau Oceanis 45 owner's manual

I have just received in the past few weeks a couple of PDF files from my dealer that are much better than what I had previously. One includes electrical schematics. It's not perfect but it's not...

Re: BVI May 2015

This was our itinerary in 2012, but we didn't go to Anagada, instead we stayed two nights at Bitter End. Highly recommended and allowed our crew to rest some frazzled nerves after a rough day out...

Re: generator auto-shutoff

Are you sure your generator doesn't already have a raw water flow switch. Many do, I found out the hard way. ;-) Long story short the o-ring on my strainer basket was missing after I took delivery. ...

Re: New cooking pot 40% more efficient ("Jet engineer designs...")

I'm experimenting with a 6 qt Pressure Cooker, which will actually cook the food faster.

Re: Wet core in the hull - what are the options?

The boat goes on the hard and then they hook up a vacuum pump to the hull, for a few months, and preferably indoors. They draw down the pressure in the core and theoretically it dries out. That's...

Re: Coolant detected in oil (Westerbeke W21)

Likely a head gasket as Capt Len suggests. Also a cracked block is another possibility if it was not winterized properly. See if you can find someone with a Bore Scope to take a peak into the...

Re: Synthetic Motor Oil for my Diesel?

Way too much is made of the differences between Synthetic and Modern DINO. The additive packages are far more important. Without the additives Synthetic Oil is just oil, but a better refinement of...

Re: How should True Wind be determined?

I agree. I did a little example featuring an extreme case of a 4.5kn current, say Hell Gate. There is quite a difference , especially with angle, more on that in a minute. I've always thought of...

How should True Wind be determined?

I have Simrad NSS's. Until recently I wasn't sure how they determined True Wind. Were they using GPS SOG or the Boat Triducer Speed? Well it turns out after having a fouled paddle wheel on the...

Re: Boom brake advice

I just bought the Gybed Easy during the Boat Show, but have not tried it yet. I'm short a clutch, but I suppose I could use my Spinnaker Tack clutch in the interim. I'll need to figure out how to...

Re: Mermaid Condensator Alternative

Thanks for the info. I thought about just routing the drain directly to the bilge pump, which is literally just next to the AC Unit on the opposite side of a stringer.

Re: Opinions needed on Marine Air (Dometic)

Re: Oil stained Sunbrella???

I have a similar problem with a seat cushion, I foolishly rested the outboard from the tender on it for a few minutes and it leaked oil. I tried Lestoil and Dish Soap, but no satisfaction. I may...

Re: AIS Receiver installation

Also your unit has a built in Power Divider/Splitter for connecting to a VHF Radio and a single Antenna. I'm curious as to how well that functions.

You don't mention whether you have tried connecting it to a Chart Plotter yet. I take it you might be bench testing this? Connecting it to a Chart Plotter via the Nav Out Data connection would be a...

Re: Sailing ... transmission in reverse?

I used to slip my boat into gear to stop the annoying whirring noise, but only for a few months of ownership, then I installed a Flexofold over the winter.

Many years ago I worked for a company...
