Are you sure that was the cause and not just to much Xmas cheer?

Wow, Pavlov scored big this Xmas, but we've tried to explain that next Xmas will be much more frugal. Hope she's listening!

New sails, new standing rig, new rope cutter, new staysail furler, new propshaft, exhaust elbow, heat exchanger core, engine mounts, engine insulation, complete bottom job.

Consequently, we got nada!

Steve

The icemaker is a 110. Produces 10 cubes every 5 minutes. Works great. Off a gallon of gas on the genny we have ice for a day or more. Tried it on the inverter and at first it worked than tripped the inverter. The inverter is an old 500 watt. Thinking wed need a 750 or 1000. Once i figure it out will let you know. Also the ice maker is tiny. I think its 10" by 9" by 10". Loving the radar the most!!!! Picks up channel markers and little boats 7 miles away.

I like lots of ice in a tall glass....so I purchased an ice maker like yours........but I find the ice quality too soft..the ice melts too quick in the drinks....we now use short glasses but the ice still melts very quick........I am not sure it will work for me in outdoors in the heat....I like my drinks cold not watered down

Re: Xmas Present for the Boat.

doj--you ROCK!!!!!


as for the flatter anchorage--the cold front passed yielding flatter seas and swell of only 1-3 ft, as per normal....stiill gonna move to flatter and more protected area nearer pangas....they are my friends...btw--i didnt leave boat on holidays nor did i imbibe in spirits, as i am allergic to many kinds of alcoholic beverages--me n gato spent tranquil days on board....was niiiice....
minaret---i think it is both the motor mounts and the alignment--is in need of repairs asap...cannot and will not go farther without something like stiffer motor mounts --and some alignment--both seem to be related...these are soft mounts--need stiffening per my well found and derelict boatwright...he isnt quite s smart as you are, minaret, but is close second.....

Genoa Cars! Disliked the ones that came with the sailboat, pictured with the ruler.

eBay is often times good to me.
