The bugs are bad

The bugs are bad. It seems to be a couple year ago I was bitten pretty hard. Now it sailing on the brain.
I'm a michigander who works alot and sail a little, hopefully those two will swich. My work is a small automotive part store where I sell parts, rebuild starters & alternators , and do the machine shop work.
The boat is a G-CAT made in florida in late 1970. I think the company is out of business. Sailing seson is awfully short here, need to head south where it stays warm.
I enjoy reading the threads here and hope i can help others, when i can. I know I've learned quite alot. THANK YOU to everone.


Pat

Rebuilding starters and alternators and doing engine machine shop work would seem to be useful in the marine industry. Maybe you could find a job further south messing with boats.

In any case, welcome aboard.

courageous cat--Real estate, jobs, fuel, you name it is in the craper. You have great skills--use them. I took a big cut coming south 27 years ago. Pay in the north vs pay in the south, poor price on house vs more expensive house in the south, high auto insurance in north vs low auto insurance in the south. You have to do some homework to see if you want to make the switch. We have been on vacation for 27 years here.

Aloha CC,
Welcome aboard! I just posted a request for knowledge concerning exciting my generator to start giving me 110 power again. Obviously you are an auto electrician. Have you had experience in getting a generator to start producing power after its been sitting for quite a time? Its a Honda and the engine runs it just isn't kicking out any 110 or 220 juice.
Hope you enjoy the forum and can get out on the water.
Relatives from Cadillac came to visit this last January. The rain we had didn't even bother them. They liked it because even in the showers we had it was still 70 + degrees.
Kind Regards,
JohnL
