I know that your post was even long ago, but I see that quite often, telling posters to basically not post a reply to older posts.Don...welcome. That post was from the year 2000...check dates before you waste your time!
Very true. And a lot can be said about checking EVERYTHING out on one of these older boats, especially before beginning a journey away from calm waters close by and especially given the wealth of warnings and info about what to expect and look out for with these boats from the 70's and 80's.More evidence of the wisdom of having isolating valves on tanks when going offshore
Reading this post as ;art of my research in 2021...thanks DonI know that your post was even long ago, but I see that quite often, telling posters to basically not post a reply to older posts.
I respectfully have to disagree strongly, especially when people have asked for help and questions on certain boats, even if it was originally asked a decade ago, wouldn't this thread, for example, be just as pertinent today as it was years ago, given that the same boats exists with the same questions being asked over and over?
Every bit of additional info, no matter how off schedule is a wealth of further info that we all search for.
I find that the more replies and participation, the more wealth of information is gathered and makes this website even more valuable, rather then shutting helpful people down all the time for offering even more valuable info.
I wish, as likely most wish that this thread and others like it would continue to be shared and talked about, rather then making posters hesitate in that additional participation for fear of being constantly reminded, That post was from the year 2000...check dates before you waste your time!
Maybe I don't get it, but I dont see where anyone's time could possibly be wasted in sharing info on issues that are "timeless"
