    When are you going to post some photos and a video of your Greenland adventure?

    I give up (battery thread). Somewhere between a Congressional debate and an anchor thread.

    FWIW, I think you basic premise is close. There is some loss in lifetime, but so long as they are recharged soon, the loss is quite low once adjusted for the increased bank usage. I lived with a slightly undersized bank for some time.

    An interesting thread might be the best battery type and DOD for several cases:
    * Monhull long-term cruiser.
    * Multihull long term cruiser. Weight is more important.
    * Monohull weekend/ocational cruiser.
    * Multihull weekend /occational cruiser. Weight is important.
    * Racers. Weight is important to multihulls and weight is critical to performance multihulls.

    In one of those attachments there was a graph that showed wet lifetime vs. SOC range for several battery types. What it also showed was that for batteries that only see 200-400 deep cycles in their lifetime, it just does not matter that much; they die from corrosion.

    I can’t PM or open any forum etc. I think disabling my PM essentially banned me, can you get me reinstated?

    Hi Dockhead, There are a couple of users that remind me of retired FL condo association officers whose opinion I have no interest in on any level. I have added them to my ignore list. Does that mean my posts are also hidden from them? I don't want flaming emails of ridicule coming my way based on *ignorant questions*. Thanks, Rick

    Hello Dockhead, we are in Lanzarote and my pontoon neighbour owns a Moody 54. He has discovered an alarming failure in his steering cable. I took a photo of the failure and would like to send it to your email if you agree. The failure is located in the engine room in an area not visible. If you wish, I'll send my piccy to your email address.

    greetings from Kusadasi -- question - do you know jimb sails name here - I want to send him a question about the black sea - maybe you have a thought - got my invite to Russia but now a bit of an issue with crimea to Ukraine so I thought maybe go clockwise instead of the usual counter clockwise so I can go Romania to Ukraine to romaine to crimea and then over to Russia as the Russians said if I have a crimea passport stamp I would probably get thrown out of the Ukraine -

    Greetings from chuck and patty and soulmates in Kusadasi Turkey -- we are in the first stages of looking at our 2106 cruising season and right now planning the Black Sea. Someone on the board suggested contacting you about information on getting into Russia. I understand we need an invite. How do we get that and any contacts would be appreciated. Any other information or hints would also be muchly appreciated.

    I was reading an old post and came across this comment "I am actually thinking about Orkneys and Iceland next summer so I might end up eating some of these words. Stay tuned." Did you actually make it there and if so how was the sailing?
