True, true. One on the stern cleat and let's go. He got the bow thruster going and boat backing down, lol what a mess. Now will anyone agree, that maybe, possibly, by some little chance be a guy with a few bucks and no skills. Hmmmm?

I concur. Wow Jedi, you caught a lot of heat on this thread lol. That's why I don't post so much anymore. All I do is work on boats for a living and tried at times to give my 30 years of experience, but it always seems someone knows better, so I gave up. Thanks for the advice on the inverter. I went with the Magnum and upgraded to a New Balmar AT SF 165 and a duo charge. I like the serpentine belt upgrade. Anyway fight the good fight my good man.

p.s. I also have a motorhome :-


My Motorhome is for sale. Hopefully have a buyer for when we return from Argentina in two weeks. That'll be a large part of our catamaran kitty. We are north of Tampa, btw....

Gentle people.

Enough already. If you cannot discuss the subject without infraction worthy manners then we must close the thread.

Re: Multihull in distress.

So

Mods removed a lot of posts pertaining to this spat.
Let us remind you that CF is a boating forum with a set of rules to abide by. The admin team remain as neutral as we can on all topics except when accusations and trouble arise and then we take the middle ground to re establish harmony. It is NOT our place to take sides or do anything other than make CF a pleasant place to participate on.

It takes time for us to decide on a good course of action and then do it. In this case we removed all posts related to a disagreement and that is that. Get a grip and discuss who did what or to whom or whether there is a misidentification of persons OUTSIDE of the forums.

Be nice.
