We did toss our bulky salon tables (came with a large one and a small one). Instead we use a light weight "TV table". It really opened up the salon area.

Yeah, I love em. Never had one go bad yet and most mine came with the boat. what the heck, if a $250 boat appliance lasts 6-8 years... cool. Nothing like reaching your destination and having warm water for a shower just from the motoring into the anchorage. If you've motored a bunch, you'll still have warm water the next morning. Free hot water really.

Exactly. And very environment friendly too , because the boat without just spills all that wasted energy overboard with the cooling water">engine cooling water .

I tossed off a Jimmy Buffett book 100 miles of the Gulf de Fonseca. No one should ever suffer from such literature.

Yeah it was. Since Jedi didn't get the nose bag I thought I would add a little more info.

Agree! You should also throw overboard any Jimmy Buffett CD that contains the song Margaritaville on it! If you ever really feel the need to hear it again just hang out in any Florida waterfront bar you'll hear it soon enough!

I still don't get it, but it felt like an insult. Just wondering what triggered that...

I think Kokomo qualifies too.

I can still tolerate Kokomo once in a while but, when I hear Margaritaville it's "Slowly I turned step by step, inch by inch..."

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

To sort of get this thread away from the hazards of wallet envy and back on track, I'm going to come at this backwards. My excuse for doing so is that both Jim and I are packrats.http://www.cruisersforum.com/images/...on_redface.gif So I'm going to tell you some gifts we've received from folks more discliplined than ourselves in this business of throwing stuff out ...

1) Splash Zone, underwaterepoxy, helped keep water out on I-1

2) Hot knife/soldering iron --often used

3) water pump, used now for a washdown pump--it had been an extra spare for the donor.

Something that might be thrown out but isn't going to be is a set for 4 of
stoneware plates, bowls, cups, salad plates and saucers. One of the plates is mended. We have miscellaneous bowls and 8 corelle plates, too. But I use plates instead of platters. I could replace with all corelle, but the stoneware was a gift from treasured friends, and it stays. Go figure.

I did think the chap who kept his briefcase could use it to keep his favorite hand tools in. http://www.cruisersforum.com/images/smilies/devil_3.gif

I hear you Cap. The years I was with Discovery Diving, Jimmy sang about 18/7 on the dock outside speakers (we had all the CDs) and was not to be interfered with. He usually got turned on when the boss drove in the parking lot. And off when she left. She was a very short woman but quite tall on the inside.

Re: things you've tossed off the boat that others think are necessary

Took me a year to remove the Kings 8001 LORAN unit off the boat after the Coast Guard stopped transmitting the signals.
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: TO DO LIST: REMOVE LORAN
Eventually I decided toat least use the case for an instrumentation project for my electric propulsion system:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: INSTRUMENTATION PROJECT PART ONE: Plan A
A few months ago I get an email from a fellow in Norway who saw my post about taking apart the Kings LORAN unit for my project. He had a dead Kings 8001 unit and wanted to know if I still had the boards and manual. Pack rat that I am. I still had the boards and manual. Sent them off to him right around Earth Day:
THE BIANKA LOG BLOG: LORAN LIVES AND A HAPPY EARTH DAY ENDING!
Seems LORAN is still used around Norway. Who knew? I love it when stuff can get recycled instead of just being pitched out.
