Just fired up my 12yr old Cruisair--still works!

It came withe the boat and looked like it hasn't been used in years--probably hasn't. Anyway, fired it up yesterday and it still works like a charm. I hear they can be found on ebay, etc for 200-300 used.

Compared to the portable ones on wheels, mine weighs a ton! Bigger, unwieldily, and takes up a huge amount of room stowed away in my O27. Won't make it through the doors to the v-berth, so it goes in one of the berths under the cockpit--need to get a canvas tarp to place it on though.

If I didn't have this one, I'd look into the new ones on rollers mentioned by others earlier.

PS- I need to get the hatch cover bag that seals the hatch while in use. West Marine wants something crazy like $250 or so. I think I'll figure out how to make it myself and save the pennies.
