Sorry I did not introduce myself before posting
something else, and thanks for the welcomes! I am 69 & was a faculty member
at UC Davis for 35 years before retiring to build acoustic guitars 8 years ago. My 50th guitar is in progress.
27 ("Surprise" berthed at Glen Cove Marina, Vallejo, CA) is my first cruising boat, though I've sailed small boats and other people's big & bigger boats since my first memory (looking down the centerboard
box of an old Cape Cod
knockabout at that mysterious blue deep). So far, Surprise and I mostly go out alone, and we haven't cruised anywhere for an overnight. People tell me there are lots of places to cruise
to around SF Bay
, so eventually I'll get out. I hope to do at least one blue water cruise
to the south while I'm still fit and when Surprise has proven herself strong enough to do that. She's 33 yrs old....
Thanks for your notes! I will check the sensor to see if the mechanic
used teflon tape. Otherwise it is a new piece, so probably not gunked up. Gord-Thanks for the link to your gauge testing post.
