Re: Bilge pumps- Cartridge or conventional?

I have a small cartridge pump I use for acid flushing heat exchangers. I'm not particularly impressed with it. All the bilge pumps aboard Auspicious are the old fashioned fixed sorts.

Re: Let's see your electronics! (for science)

On what basis? Oh by the way, I did not appreciate your rude PM.

If you think your questions are unique than you have definitely not done any research. These same questions do in fact get asked...

Re: Propeller 101?

SAE tapers are 1:16 and 1:12 (generally smaller shafts use 1:16 and larger ones above 3" or so are 1:12). Metric tapers are 1:10 and 1:20.

Re: Manual Toilet Questions

I suggest that in many ways an electric toilet IS keeping things simple.

I expected to fit a manual toilet on Auspicious. The customer service rep at the factory who counseled me through the...

Re: Let's see your electronics! (for science)

Re: Let's see your electronics! (for science)

Unless you are talking about music this is indeed the second step.

The first step is to gather together a description of your desired life style. You may find that there are internal conflicts.

Re: Which Ensign should I fly?

No. Ultimately registration or documentation ties to ownership and you can only have one title.

I don't know of any legal way to be registered in a US State and carried on any UK Register.

Re: Which Ensign should I fly?

To my knowledge you cannot legally do that. Which ever of the two was most recent probably controls and is the only legal registration or documentation.

Re: The Chicken is on the market

In my time in universities overseas I was given a lot of extra slack on language. Of course I'm an American and we are well-known for a poor command of language.

Re: "New Generation Anchors"

True - the availability of better anchors doesn't make previous designs any worse than they have ever been. Newer isn't always better either. In the case of anchors, the newer designs are better -...

Re: Running Out of Panel Switches

That depends on the plotter. Look at the specs. The displays on larger plotters can draw more than the radar.

Re: The Chicken is on the market

Maybe. I agree that boat ownership is not much of a factor among good crew. At the same time it isn't necessarily a non-starter either.

The worst crew I ever had was a USCG 100LT captain.

Re: Major water ingress - best emergency device?

Which is silly. Cooling water runs about 15 gpm/100 hp. That means a common 50 hp engine pumps 8(ish) gpm which is close to useless.

Re: sail mail, iridum and windows 8

What service provider are you using for your Iridium phone?

You can set up a 9555 in Windows 8 although it is fussy. Once you're connected to your ISP connecting to Sailmail is easy.

Re: Chucking my propane stove, what to replace it with

The difference in average heat content of propane and butane is about 1%. It doesn't make any difference, which is why you don't have to rejet when you "switch" between them. In some places you end...
