Re: Phase 1 Complete

I bought an old semi trailer. My Stinson and all the stuff we wanted to keep fit inside nicely.

108?
Where did you put the trailer? I intend to sell the house and small farm it's on, property tax is $5K a yr and it is a money pit, I hope to buy rental property, a duplex is planned, then after the boat thing is over, move into 1/2 of the duplex.

Re: Phase 1 Complete

Congratulations. We are starting work on our 380 on Thanksgiving weekend. First step is fix the fridge. Mine has an autoprop. I haven't used it enough to make a final judgement, but the boat does handle well around the docks. It is supposed to add half a knot to sailing speed when engine is off.

I'm replacing my refrigeration this month too, as soon as Rich get through building it for me.
What unit are you going with? Mine is a 14 cu ft, so it's going to require either a real significant system, or extremely efficient insulation, which we don't have.
I'm going for close to a 50/50 spillover. I do need to know how much clearance to leave at the top of the divider though.
I had an Adler Barbor super cold machine, and it really wasn't enough.

I'm looking real hard at a Max-prop myself, does you rudder have a vibration it at speed under sail? Mine does and I think at least some of that may be from turbulence from the prop

Re: Phase 1 Complete

Great stuff a64, congrats! Once we get ours back to Texas we'll begin spending much more quality time aboard so we can decide what we need to do. My first project will be a more permanent replacement of the propane solenoid we jury-rigged before our maiden voyage. Digging out all the putty and replacing the wires looks like a pretty good time...

Keep us posted on your progress and congrats again.

Re: Phase 1 Complete

Kids !!!???? How many grown ups get to sit in the left seat of a B-25???

Congrats on Phase One.

I too am getting there. Slowly, but methodically. I have 6 months to decide if this cruising thing is really what I want to do or not. If so, once my lease is up in June, I pack Florida up in a Class C camper, and move to Texas to drive a truck on the oil rigs.

Love the 140 !!

Re: Phase 1 Complete

Mine has two AB cold machines for fridge and freezer. The fan doesn't run on the fridge so it cools some but not enough. I'm hoping I can fix it.

I've only sailed it during the sea trial and didn't notice any vibration.

Let me look into how much the Dyneema control lines and a stout handle are going to cost me.... And see if there's a way I can get over my affliction of not being able to spin in a circle for very long...

Re: Phase 1 Complete

I'm afraid that I do in fact have had the trifecta for quite some time, just hadn't realized it until you brought it up.
Is that why even though I'm making more money than ever before, I'm just as broke as always?

See you're going about it all wrong. You should have married up like me, that way the trifecta can never be complete. Not only does she supply money for her wants. There's extra laying around for mine. Gotta love a woman that makes way more then you do.
