I guess it depends upon your lifeline stantions....

I guess it depends upon your lifeline stantions. Standard stantions are robustly built and should handle the load. Remember, the board is attached low so the pressure would be better supported.

Re: Simple Question-How good is the sailing in the Chesapeake ?

Re: Engine vent air valve?

Let me guess - the port side is connected to a blower to remove air from the engine room? If so, the starboard is for air intake to suck fresh air into the engine room.

Re: Vented loop vent confusion/waste system sanity check

I must admit to never being aware that one could attach a hose to a vented loop vent. It just vents locally and the valve always keeps the effluent inside the hose where it belongs. There never has...

Re: furler

When single handing your success at sail handling is going to rely more on early weather prediction and early sail handling than anything else. Reduce sail before it is a necessity. Rolling up a...

Re: Is this second track necessary?

I can't see the reason for 2 tracks either. Remove the shorter one.

Re: Removing a birds nest behind the panel!

I like the concept of moving the neg bus bar out which would remove half of the wires with it, making more room behind the panel. How many circuits are unswitched? I don't like the idea of unswitched...

I think I stuffed my furler. What do you think?

I was wondering that myself. If that is the case, you cannot sail the boat until repaired or you may lose your mast. Just in case, take a spinnaker halyard and attach it to a fitting in the bow and...

Re: new Instrument install

Myself, I would make every effort to remove the existing transducers before drilling new holes in the bottom of my boat. Hopefully it will go better than you anticipate. Do you have good access from...

Re: Waste Bladder fills up with saltwater as soon as I pump out.

I'm guessing that the vent may be blocked so the vacuum sucks in seawater slowly? Do you have trouble flushing? Or maya be the upside down U anti-siphon valve is clogged. Maybe you don't have one...

Re: Knapps Narrows

It would be tight, especially around the R4 on the western side. They have installed a new green buoy to help - you need to stay real close to the R4 and turn sharply afterwards. It can be done with...

Re: Pigtail Adapter: 30A to household 15a plug

I don't think you will have a problem. You won't be able to run a/c while plugged in and you may have a problem running a microwave, especially if the battery charger is on. What would happen in that...

Re: Help pinpointing a leak

My comment is about a surveyor who doesn't remove the floor boards to check under them. I find that incompetent. What did he check then, everything in sight, nothing behind covers? Isn't this why you...
